When I ask this question of people on my newsletter list I get a large variety of answers~ from stamping to life in general, but the answer I hear the most is "more time to stamp"! I get where they are coming from~ I'm a stamper first and a demonstrator second. I'm also a bookkeeper, a mom, a wife, a sister, etc you get the picture~ busy, busy busyjust like everyone!
I wish I could give everyone an extra day to spend stamping each week~ wouldn't that be great! The world would be a much happier place! It would just be called stampday and it would occur all over the world~
Well we all know that is not going to happen so let's brainstorm other ways to fit some stamping time into our busy lives~
Sometimes you just have to schedule it! We schedule everything else in our lives~ why not put aside one time during the month to just create something!
- I have a friend and I that schedule our "stamping time" we actually pick a day and put it on the calendar and then we get together and stamp. She brings her project and I bring mine. This is "our" time and honestly our families know we NEED it!
- How about a crafting night with a group of friends? Everyone could bring something to work on~ doesn't have to be stamping~ I know you have friends that need some time to work on their projects.
- Find a group that does retreats or day events where you purchase a table for the day to work on projects~ These are great to just get away and meet new people and craft!
- Pack up a project and head to the nearest coffee shop~ you will have no interruptions!
We all have busy lives~ especially if you have kids at home~ but honestly we are much happier people if we spend a little time doing something we love. Stamping to me is my stress reliever~ it makes me happy and brings joy to those around me. I wish I had a day each week devoted only to stamping but I don't see that happening anytime soon, so I will make the most of the time I do have~
