Making time for creativity

It is very difficult to find the time in our very busy lives to paint, write and explore. My intention with this blog post is to give you a few tips and tricks to ease the process.

1. Make yourself a creative box / tote

I am sure you already have one in your space. Find a nice box or a nice tote to organize your creative tools. 

Here are a few examples; 

Painting tote:  I placed in this bag (see image below): Watercolor, a watercolor sketchbook, pencils, brushes, a container for water and a little piece of cotton. Whenever I feel like painting, I just get everything out and place everything back in when I am done. I could also leave the house with it and paint outside :)

Creative box: A pencil, a notebook, some inspiring magazines, glue and scissors. A perfect way to write more, take notes about creative ideas, glue different images and get creative!

2. Put your box in a space where you will be creating. 

Do not store your box or tote somewhere you will not use it. Leave it close to your favorite place to create. 

If you don’t have a space that you like, try to create one. A cozy little corner in your home where you could add a table and a chair to motivate you even more. 

Here are a few inspiring creative nooks;

3. Add some creative time blocks to your agenda. 

Set an alarm to make sure you don't forget. I think it helps to create a block in your agenda dedicated to a creative project. Or else you might never take the time. 

I hope this is helpful !
