How do you make time to create?

Time to create?

I'm often asked the question, "how do you find the time to create"?

I have time, we all do.

An hour waiting for a plane…. eating a meal on my own, on a bus, on a plane, …….at the moment, I'm packed ready to leave the hotel and I have 3/4 of an hour…. a luxury of time and it made me think that most of my spare time is spent creating.

Now I have my Ipad, I am even more productive. !!!!!

For instance, I have an entire art gallery with 40.000 pictures in it… It's called Art Authority and as an App it takes me on a journey to the best galleries in the world…

I also have the entire works and history of  Leonardo Da Vinci

Using my spare time being creative is not new, I've done it since I was a child. I think we all did when we were young.

If you have 15 minutes, what would you do. A little stitching, take up pen and paper and write your thoughts down or maybe even draw a little.

I always have a pencil, eraser and journal in my bag… and now I can draw in the Ipad (not as well as with pen and paper) but I can do different things. I write notes to myself and send it by email and sometimes I've added the notes to the blog.

This morning I woke at 5.00 and I've been editing film, writing and catching up on business from home.

I could have slept, I could have watched TV, but creating something special is much more interesting…

    Time… precious it is. I try not to waste time, maintaining my home, gardening, laundry, steals away so much time from what I love. Since I have retired I have enjoyed my reading, and drawing, and sewing, making quilts particulairly. You have been my springboard for trying new things, like making smaller fun quilts, and letting go of having to be so exact about everything. I finally broke out a pattern I have always wanted to make, the Gypsy Vest, by Maggie Walker. What fun. I’m also working on a foot stool for my 2 year old granddaughter, painting it a pale blue and then adding rabbits and flowers. I will write a poem about her to write under the seat.
