If you're frustrated that you never seem to have the time for YOU and YOUR CREATIVE OUTLET, if your art supplies are left unused waiting for you to find the time to use them, then the chances are you will still be stuck and feeling overwhelmed until you do this one thing. Craft a creative nook at home. I challenge you to do this today (with help from the free CREATIVE NOOK CHECKLIST!).
WHY is having a creative nook so important?
One of the things that holds up back from exploring our creativity is the 'excuse' that we just don't have the time and space to do it.
While this is often true there are steps you can take to make your creative time more accessible. The first step is to craft your own creative nook at home.
By doing this you are immediately freeing up future time to be messy and get creative, you are removing the excuse that you do not have time by ensuring that everything is set up and ready to go. At ANY time!
Easy access to quick creating = happy heart.
Having a creative nook that you can just sit in each day can inspire and motivate you - just because it exists!
But more than that, a creative nook is an invitation. Having your art supplies within reach, or having your art journal open on the desk, is hard to resist. With this set up quick creating is super easy, you don't need longer than 10 minutes to splash on a few backgrounds, to doodle a few lines and marks, to jot down some thoughts. You can work in layers -just a few minutes here and there - over a period of days or weeks, you will be surprised by what you can achieve in small snippets of time.
Crafting a creative nook is the easiest way TO MAKE TIME FOR ART AND CREATIVITY.
Your creative nook does not have to be a dedicated art room, or take days to set up, it can be as simple as a corner of your living room or kitchen with a small desk/table, a box of supplies that can be stored underneath and an old bed sheet to cover the floor with.
