Craftsy: The creative outlet for busy moms

As I was getting ready to start a heaping pile of laundry the other day, I realized that there was nothing on the daily agenda other than chores!

“How sad,” I think to myself. Where is the “me-time” that I hear my neighbors always talking about? This can't possibly be it. 

The reality it I spend most of my time in the kitchen or in the laundry room doing an endless amount of things to keep the house tidy and my family happy.

It’s so easy to get wrapped up in life’s daily demands like what’s going to be cooked for dinner, or whether or not the dishes are done. I can’t even remember the last time I did something to express myself creatively.

And then I discover Craftsy! It’s a website that explores, in detail, how to become an artist in all aspects of life. When I say all, I mean with the sewing machine, in the kitchen, in the garden, with a paintbrush or even with cake decorating tools. The list is endless!

I suppose I always put off starting new hobbies because I usually have no idea where to start! This site makes it easy and fun to explore a new hobby, or even perfect that one you’ve had for a while.

Painting that portrait of the family dog, or getting out the camera and taking those pictures of the garden, all of sudden become a real-life artistic activity with the help of Craftsy. There are examples of beautiful artwork with comments from award winning artists that trigger your inner passion to express yourself.

The best part of Craftsy is that I was able to buy all the supplies I needed to get started on a project right then and there; and I’m taking an online drawing class for only $29.99!

It’s safe to say that Craftsy single-handedly activated my inner artist; and now my "me time" is a little more interesting than folding laundry.
