Sometimes life is just plain old BUSY. But creativity doesn’t have to suffer! Sure, it would be great to have a whole day to devote to your creative practice of choice, but there are seasons when that is just not possible. So, I thought I’d share some ideas of things you can do in just 15 minutes or less. I’ve discovered that doing a little each day really does produce amazing results.
