Taking the time for art

I always feel short of time. Learning the skills required for creating something beautiful with my hands is going to take time and it's going to be frustrating while my skill level is low. I've been working on the assumption that if I can get the same feeling of "Oh good, there's beauty in my life" by purchasing someone else's work instead, that takes less time and involves less frustration; why not take the shortcut?

The problem is that the shortcut's not working any more -- "beauty in my life" isn't enough any more, it has to be "taking the time to create" and "doing something hard, myself."
