As I did my Monday morning clean-the-house-catch-up, finishing all the dishes and laundry that didn’t get finished during the weekend, I was reminded of The Flylady of flylady.net, who advocates getting your housework done in 15 minute increments.
“You can do anything for 15 minutes,” she says.
I’ve been wondering how I can apply this to making jewelry?
How can I take better advantage of snatches of time here and there?
Sure, we’d all love to have hours and hours of uninterupted time to create, but most of the time, most of us don’t.
Here are some of the things I need to do:
– clean my work bench and keep it clean, so that when I suddenly realize, hey, I have a free 15 minutes, or 30 minutes, I can sit down and work
– have my sketchbook at the ready, so I have a project or two to work on
– be as efficient as possible in my other work, to create more time for art

How about you? Can you make art 15 minutes at a time? What can you do to make it easier to make art?
