20 Minutes A Day is the idea of doing something creative everyday. Okay, in reality, we probably need to make that 4-5 days a week, but we’re going to call it 20 Minutes A Day anyway.
I went back to work at the worst time possible for my social life. I was committed to accompanying our church’s Christmas Cantata (which I love) but required hours of practice both home and away, and culminated in four nights of performances. Mix that with family and other commitments and places to be and it just left me exhausted each night. Bottom line, I just wasn’t in a creative mood. My sewing machine sat untouched. Projects piled up.
I can’t wait for that “day of uninterrupted sewing”. It doesn’t exist for me anymore. Since I’m not getting a lot done anyway, I might as well try just 20 minutes a day and see what happens, because that 20 minutes will add up to and hour, and I already know how much can be accomplished in an hour.
Positive me says, “I can drop everything and be creative for 20 minutes and still have plenty of time for whatever else is going on in the evening. I can probably even work it in while fixing dinner!”
Procrastinator me says, “I don’t really want to work on anything tonight, but heck, it’s only 20 minutes!”
Creative me says, “That 20 minutes will make me feel refreshed and happy!”
If you’re having a hard time finding the time for whatever your creative outlet is, I hope you’ll join me 20 Minutes A Day and see just how much can be accomplished!

Sometimes it’s just planning, but it’s still creative. This is layout for the current quilt I need to work on.
