The Handbook for Catholic Moms has a section about creativity and helping nurture our mind by having creative pursuits that we turn to for both self-improvement and for relaxation.
I find that writing can be very creative for me, but not particularly relaxing (except when I am finished!). I also enjoy handcrafts such as knitting, and also trying out new recipes. I found working out and trying several different recipes from the book and website Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day, because the recipes are more foolproof than most. Even with the help of this excellent technique, I still find reliably good bread an elusive goal. Any suggestions out there for how I can get a loaf of bread to turn out well every single time?
What do you do to nurture your creative side?
