I don’t know about you, but being creative can make me hungry.
Still, there’s an art to coming up with the perfect snack that can go with crafting. You want something that isn’t going to drip, melt, or get your fingers greasy. After all, whether you’re working with embroidery thread, paints, wood, or clay, you don’t want it staining your work! And some crafts aren’t conducive to having snacks around at all, due to toxic fumes, or toxic chemicals you wouldn’t want to ingest.
But still, I tend to wind up sitting at my pillow for hours at a time and need fortification.
I find that having a variety of tea sandwiches and bite-sized sweets sans frosting or gooey fillings works best for me. And I turn my head away from the pillow, so as not to spill crumbs. In addition to that, in cold weather I keep a mug of either coffee or tea by my side. In warm weather, it’s ice tea or lemonade. After all, it wouldn’t do to get dehydrated, either!
So what about you? Do you snack while you craft or not? If you do, what do you snack on?
Tell me all about it!
