11 crafting habits that kill creativity.

Updated: Nov 10, 2017

1. Spending too much time on Pinterest - you can have too much of a good thing, you know!


2. Not taking the plunge to get started - go on, just dive in!


3. Leaving things lying around - don’t leave previous unfinished projects in eye-shot, you’ll get distracted or demoralised. Put them away for later and concentrate on the now!


4. Trying to do too much - If it’s a new type of craft, keep it simple and add more to your second project.


5. Losing confidence - You know by now the crafters’ mantra of ‘this is great, this is great, this is great, this is rubbish, I hate it!’ - Have the confidence to push through and keep going until it's finished!

6. Not keeping tools in good working order (glue on your scissors, blunt craft knife, clumpy paintbrushes – oh dear) - Cleaning is boring but necessary.


7. Getting distracted - Ooh, Pinterest! (see point 1).


8. Not having the right tools for the job - the kids' craft scissors just aren’t going to cut it!


9. Getting fed up - Familiarity breeds contempt, so choose quick projects for easy wins that will keep up your morale.


10. Comparing yourself to others - If Pinterest fails abound, consider starting a project that comes from within.


11. Not finishing the task in hand - Don’t give up, finish it and you’ll love it (or at the very least you'll be able to give it away!
