I have come to the astounding conclusion that I "MUST do something creative every single day.
Housework, while a necessary evil, is in no way creative.
In order to feed my soul, nourish my mind and preserve my sanity I need to be creative in even some small way EVERY day.
It doesn't matter if it is sewing, crochet, quilting or making cards and scrapbooks.
It doesn't have to consume the entire day or even most of it.
It can just be a few stolen minutes to do something, "anything" that feels creative.
If I take those few moments I am better able to face this crazy life and its challenges.
So my advice to every one is to find that creative outlet that feeds your soul and never let life's mundane problems rob you of its life sustaining nourishment.
Everyone has the spark of creativity within them.
Yes, sometimes I can be serious.
