This is kind of following on from my last blog post where I talked about finding a new path for GW, (here) I want to talk a little bit about what I am doing to keep the creative fires burning not just because it’s fun but because for me it is a MUST for maintaining my sanity and sense of self. Though I’ve learned that it doesn’t always have to be physically making something, sometimes it could be as simple as reorganizing a shelf to display interesting objects. It isn’t some big thing that requires lots of effort, it’s actually about small things that build over time, almost without realising it that add up to a life creatively lived. So here are a few of the things that have kept me going creatively over the past few months and they are honestly all very easy things that anyone could do.
Where has time gone?? It’s 2020 and I’ve not blogged since mid 2018, wow. Here’s what happened. The year started out sparkling with possibility, big plans, finally making a profit (spoiler: profit does not equal a living though) and I was getting official help with making my little business physically sustainable and clearing a path to growth. Then I became pregnant with my third child, great! I could work until the end of the year maybe getting some extra outside help and take a few months off after, right? Nope, very wrong.
