Something that has been occupying my thoughts of late is how do you make time for craft? I really enjoy (enjoyed) the craft I do but since the kids were born I seem to have less and less time to do it. They don't go to sleep very well so evenings are out and during the day other things (including the kids! LOL) clamour for my attention. Lately an impromptu crafting sesion has kind of happened at a friend of mine's house, where my older 2 (aged 7 and 10) do drama with their friends for an hour while the mums chat. I started taking my knitting, but unfortunately my littlest aged 4 just won't let me get on with it, demanding my attention so much that I have to put my knitting away with a sad sigh.
I know that if I want to start doing something the answer is just to start as I mean to go on, but there are so many demands on my time that I can't see how I can fit it in without my eternal friend 'guilt' peering over my shoulder and muttering in my ear about spending my time more productively. My ds runs a mile from anything remotely arty or crafty, my dd2 (7yr old) is showing some interest but needs a lot of input from me and my dd3 is a bit too little to do it independently, so I might get some craft going but not mine iyswim.
I'd rather not pay a life coach to help me sort this, so thought I'd come straight to the experts ie home ed mums who are already doing it.
