What I do then is one of the following:
- Manipulate a photo (quick and doesn’t require hard work)
- Make a square for my Tunisian crochet quilt blanket (they’re only about 2.5 x 2.5 inches)
- Make a quick drawing
- Write a blog post (hint)
- Do a smaller version of what I had in mind
It’s a good idea to keep a couple of smaller things handy for those times. Like a creative band aid or creative duct tape if you will. Ready to mend your day when you need it 🙂 I talked to a woman today who suffers from Crohn’s disease and is in the middle of a flare-up. She had all these wonderful ideas of things she wants to make and has been collecting them on Pinterest. But she’s unable to actually do them. I suggested to her, that she could scale one of those projects down. Make it smaller and simpler. Then she’d at least get the creative experience, and also get a taste of what the full-size project might be like. If you need ideas for how you can be creative, despite a lack of time and/or energy, get in touch.
