The value of exploring other creative interests is to keep your mind stimulated and allow you to approach quilting from a different perspective. As I pointed out last week, many quilting bloggers have multiple interests that creep into their blog posting. Even writing a blog is a creative endeavor. So exploring other creative interests doesn't really seem to be lacking in the crew I follow. Maybe the biggest challenge for many of us is finding a way to balance all those creative interests. I certainly struggle with that. There weren't any complete answers in the Google searches I did, but there were some interesting concepts about balance.
I also learned a new term "multipotentiality". According to Wikipedia, multipotentiality refers to "an individual whose interests span multiple fields or areas". Check out the link, it's an interesting definition.
So how well did you do this week with staying on task with your quilting, knitting or whatever your craft de jour was last week. I did pretty well with 6 out of 7 days with at least 15 minutes in the sewing room.
Link up and share how well you did or didn't do this last week.
