Question from Saltyjoknits: So random, but LaLa I was wondering if you have suggestions for gamification of your crafting productivity. I know you left HPHCKC, and I still play. Increasingly, for a variety of reasons, I’m thinking of quitting. BUT I’m oddly motivated by imaginary internet points 🙂 And when I took winter term off last year to SOS, I found my productivity went down but also the inner zen I get from crafting took a hit (most of that was pre-covid stopping the world spinning on its axis). So i’ve been trying to think of ways I can ‘game’ my crafting where I don’t need the motivation I get from house cup. I know that probably sounds ridic, but I thought I’d ask or if you and Leslie might talk about what motivates you to be productive in your crafts on an episode.
