Do you have things on your calendar that you routinely do every week? This is what I try to do. I have days that I have dyeing fabric and quilting scheduled on my calendar and try and I mean try not to book anything else on those days and times. Some days I can't get around it and have to schedule a doctor's appointment or the washer repair dude, but I try my best to keep my schedule. Otherwise, I may not get anything done.
So, tell me, let's have a discussion about how you manage your creative time.
