Having the shop has been great for my creative side. I've knitted, crochet and now I'm sewing and making yo-yos. I don't do a lot of this at home because there are too many people and our house is crowded. Also I have a lot more dead time at the shop. I have to be there, even if people aren't, so I make stuff. It's work to keep the creative clutter under control, but that's a small price to pay for the freedom to craft a couple of hours a day.
Stephanie and I have started a craft meet up on Sundays. Anyone who wants to join is more than welcome. We listen to music and make stuff. last week Bessie started a crochet chain that's getting pretty long. I think she is trying to use the entire skein on one chain. :-)
