Create Room for Yourself: Ten Day Challenge

Struggling to find the time to create? 

It's hard for us too. Our days are jam packed with things we have to do- long work days, care for the kids, walk the dog, laundry, prepare food, errands... What are your daily must-dos? Is time for oneself really an option? Seemingly not. We recently came across a study by ABC News reporting that only about 16.8% of women ages 36-50 make time for themselves every day. We know that everyone struggles with this at different times in their life. 

For crafty types like us, creative time is critical to feel good. Everything else seems to fall into place when this deep need is met. Can you recall the safety instructions on an airplane? - place an oxygen mask on yourself before helping others. We must attend to ourselves to show up for others.

It's time to change the statistic. Can 100% of us start to habitually create room for ourselves? Can we all do this together? 

The #CreateRoomChallenge 

We know that change can be difficult. After all, there are so many very good reasons things are the way they are. 

To help you (and us! - we struggle like you) create room for ourselves, we've crafted ten challenges, a small journey, between June 19th and 28th.

We'll start with activities to cultivate a change mindset, then move into creating the right environment and end with three days of creative experiences. These stages are purposeful and well proven to kick-start lasting change. We've even lined up some experts to share their experiences and talk you through the process. 

If you need a little more incentive, we’re here to help with that. At the conclusion of the Create Room Challenge, we are giving away a DREAMBOX. Every time you participate in a challenge, you will get one entry to win. Complete ten challenges and you'll have ten entries! There will also be daily opportunities for bonus entries. 

How to Participate

Between June 19 - 28th check our Instagram or Facebook feed daily. Follow the prompts and share with our community. We’ll do the same.

With a little inspiration from each other, we’ll go much further. So, here we go! The Create Room (for yourself!) ten day challenge. Are you in?

    Having an Original Scrap Box would be a dream come true! At age 61 I finally have a “craft” room! I was my Mom’s caregiver for years, she suffered with Parkinson’s disease After her passing I am turning her bedroom into my craft room. I have so many craft supplies (I’m a craft supply hoarder) but I can not seen to get organized . I know the Scrap Box would be an answer to my prayers! But being on a fixed income (social security disability) it will take me years to save enough $$ to buy one (unless I win the lottery). I feel they are worth every penny they sale for but its just isnt in the budget .I have my fingers crossed to win the lottery or to win an Original Scrap Box!!

    have tried to follow you on a live feed but no joy, I am moira and live in a village called coven south Staffordshire in the uk, I live in a park home and if I had the money would buy one of your bespoke units in a heatbeat. They look fantastic. I am a 75 year old lady with a slight disability so the item itself would be BRILLIANT for a park home, Just a bit of info for your marketing. Keep up the good work.
    kind regards

    I love color, and any excuse to create with color will work for me. I just wish I wouldn’t mess the house up while I’m at it. Everything takes so long to do because I’ve got to stumble over and look thru everything before I can find what I need.

    I retired last June from teaching after 25 years. I had expected to enjoy my crafting and grandchildren. January of this new year I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I had a double mastectomy in March and am in the reconstruction process and, will be until the end of the year. I was unable to sew, and had many medical bills.
    To my surprise, my former students and parents organized a fundraiser to pay all my medical bills. I’m blessed.
    I just started playing with my Cricut and it has help me deal, and take my mind off the pain and long treatment. I have drooled over your dream box for sometime entering every contest I could find. Thank you for continuing to give me opportunity to once more try again. You make a wonderful needed product. Crafting has save my sanity through all this.

    That rolling cart looks way cool. Especially if you don’t have a lot of room to work with.
