You've gotta have a set up at home that entices, but doesn't overwhem! Surround yourself with beauty. Enjoy the art of organization. Create easy access to your crafts. These things have helped me to enjoy my connection and time with art with more satisfaction. I was just reading a book on the Tao of clearing clutter at lunch today, and loved the imagery provided for clearing obstructions that are in your way of connection to a higher level of life and clear spirited path.
I set up a shelf dedicated to art. I keep my crafts supplies in suitcases too, because it looks so cute and vintagey. In the smaller ones, I have projects ready to go to take on a trip or work on at a friends or coffee shop.
Crafting at exuberantly crafty friends houses is always glorious (name a material or tool and Alexandra has it!). Surround yourself with kind spirits who encourage you to pursue your love for creative expression.
Even the local bike repair collective has an art night each week. Of course they do, what else would a bunch of DIYers do with left over parts and welding kits. I have enjoyed quite a few Crafternoons at Bicas.
We like to get out sometimes... the local coffee shop doesn't mind our boxes of art supplies and we love the treats to eat.
Ah, lots of good memories and hopefully more where that came from.
