Make Creativity Dates

Instead of waiting and waiting for flashes of inspiration, schedule a weekly date to exercise your own creativity, whether it’s a sewing class, a craft night with friends, or just an hour to pursue a hobby.

For years, I’ve gathered with a group of women. Each year we’d decide on a theme to explore. After three years we all decided we needed something different. We longed for more fun, creativity and joy. So we planned it. You may think that takes all the fun out it? While creativity does love spontaneity, it thrives on order, preparation and good company.
