Finding Time to Create


I have been struggling -- no, actually failing -- to find time to be creative. I keep thinking that once soccer is over, once the living room renovation is done, once the garden produce is safely stored away, once my kitchen is COMPLETELY painted --then I can stop long enough to

sit .....

think ....

dream ....

create.....



Jeanne from {A Bushel and A Peck} (one of the blogs that inspire me), wrote a beautifully thought out post about dreaming and creating. I asked her if I could link back to her post so you could read it too. So head on over to her blog and read {this}. I was inspired, I hope you will be too.


(These are some of the photos I took last weekend that inspire me)

is it we let our creativity slip because with autumn comes the expectation to decorate and people begin to be more social after a long, hot summer, kids have sports, the holidays are fast approaching? Stop. Breathe.

Wendy, I sure do enjoy reading your 'words' and admire your creativity. When my kids were at home, it seemed like there was always something else, and then one more thing, and then more ... there didn't seem to be that 'extra' moment to create. Night time always seemed to be the time that I'd have to 'create'. And now the kids are grown & on their own ... well I'm still looking for that 'moment' to create.

Again, I surely enjoy your words & love you work. I've a pillow in our living room that is one of your creations.

I'm thinking maybe we should start our own FarmWife Union and share our wares.

Bless,
Suzy

I wish I didn't need to sleep so much. I hear Martha Stewart sleeps only 3-4 hrs per night. That must be how she gets so much done (right...her and her 50 helpers =). Thank you for your kind words. We should mull the Farmwife Union idea around. What would we do?

Love the photos Wendy. I can completely empathize with the lack of time. Although I am always thinking you are so awesome because you get sooooooo much done all the time, and you have twice as many kids as me! I think I need that canvas texture you are using. Where did you get it?
