I love to create – whether it’s writing, taking photos, scrapbooking etc. I am also a craft nerd. The problem I have is finding time during a normal week to indulge in these activities as other things tend to take over. And let’s be honest, if I work until 7pm by the time I come home, have dinner and get settled there isn’t much time left in the evening for crafting (with the exception of crocheting… There is always time for a few stitches).
Lately I have been reading on various DIY blogs about journaling and they all offer up a series of prompts that will help you create one page a day. It can be as simple as ‘draw your favourite pet’ or, ‘write your favourite quote in fancy lettering’ to something like ‘write a full page on someone you admire’.
What really like is that I can always find one thing to write, draw, sketch about in an evening and I can control the amount of time or effort that goes into it. On nights when I am short on time I can pick something quick to jot down and on nights when I have time or am feeling extra inspired I can drag out all the craft supplies and go to town.
The important thing is that I get to be a little creative every day which in turn helps me be a more positive person with better balance. I am finding it very therapeutic and sometimes it really makes me think about myself and ask tough questions.
Check out this blog in particular for some amazing inspiration as Ashley is far better at this than I am.
