5 Tips for Craft Multitasking
If you’re a serious crafter, then you’ve probably got a few projects going right now. That’s not a bad thing! Having lots of projects means that you can diversify your crafting and get more done. But what happens when you get overwhelmed with too many projects? These 5 tips for craft multitasking will help you keep things under control.
Let’s face it, we all have at least three or four craft projects going on at once. Whether it’s scrapbooking, knitting, jewelry making, or sewing, we keep ourselves busy.
Before we know it, we’re knee-deep in projects and don’t know where to turn. These five tips can help you keep your head on a swivel so that you can get those projects done… so you can start a few more.
1 – Plan ahead
Planning ahead and setting a schedule can do wonders for your projects. If you can break everything down into small steps and sections, you’ll find that the big or multiple projects aren’t as daunting as they once were.
2 – Stock up on supplies
Part of planning is stocking up to make sure you have everything you need. Buying all of your supplies ahead of time means that you won’t get stuck in the middle of a project if you run out of material or don’t have the right tools. Create and Craft can help! With incredible prices and daily deals, you’re sure to always have a stocked craft room.
3 – Set small goals
Breaking down your project into smaller goals and accomplishments means that you’ll get more done and you’ll feel like you’re making a lot of progress. And if you end up getting farther ahead, then you’ll feel fantastic!
4 – Give yourself time
Sometimes you just need to give yourself some time off. Don’t feel bad if you end up having to take an afternoon or day off from crafting. Plan your projects with some padded “me time” to make sure you’re not working too hard.
5 – Ask for help (if you need it)
Don’t be afraid to ask for help or to include your friends. Having a big project is fun, but it can be time-consuming. Bringing your friends and family into the process can be a great way to spend time together and to make a project a social event. Take the stress from a difficult project and turn it into an evening of fun!
If not, you might have a breakdown.
These aren’t hard and fast rules, but these five tips can help you get all of your projects under control. One of the best things about crafting is that you can juggle multiple projects at once. But when that gets a bit overwhelming these tricks can get you back on track and crafting to your maximum potential.
