I came across this quote twice last week from two very different sources and it stood out to me both times. It’s a good reminder that creativity is like a muscle, the more you use it, the stronger it becomes. That’s one big reason I wanted to start this blog – to have an excuse to be creative and crafty. I’m creative at work, my title is designer after all, but it’s different. It’s more analytical and systematic. I enjoy it, but I realized I needed another outlet – one with more freedom to make mistakes, experiment and be imperfect.
Since starting tinsel + trim, I feel myself becoming more creative both in my crafts and in my work. It’s helped me to make better use of my time too. It’s not to say that I’m a well-oiled machine by any standard, but I do have more motivation to get other things out of the way so I can take time to craft and blog.
Whatever your creative outlet, I hope you’ll make time for it this week. You deserve it!
