Being able to get away by myself for five days of studio time was pure bliss and I left revived, my creativity rejuvenated. I came home, moved the piles of crap off my cutting table, took care of the shirts that needed labels that were sitting on my sewing machine, and hung my in-process quilt and all of my painted fabric up on the design wall. Each day, I added a few more rocks. It wasn’t much and I didn’t spend a lot of time creating every day, but it made all of the difference and helped me get through what was a truly horrible work week. Turning to my creativity has often been a balm in times of great stress and having a ready-to-go project from a class made that possible.
Do you have an emergency project you can turn to when desperate for the stress relief that comes from creativity? If not, maybe it’s time to get a kit or find a class.
