Why everyone is creative
As an artist and craft-a-holic, I am constantly hearing the following whenever I am posting my latest creations. A-hem, see my top three favorites from Craft Hits Party below.
"You're so crafty, I could never do something like that."
"How do you do that?"
"I am not creative. I can't do that."
Here's the deal. We are all creative in our own ways. It's what makes us so unique as individuals! I have worked with experienced and inexperienced crafters from all walks of life who all swear that they just cannot do it. They have been proven wrong time and time again. (I feel all warm and fuzzy inside when that happens, not gonna lie.) Sometimes, crafting isn't for everyone. If you genuinely don't like crafting or doing artwork, it's cool. I'm not gonna force it like those cute lil sugar pushers selling cookies at the market! (But, ooh I love some do-si-do's!)
Crafting soothes the soul after a hard day. It helps us get back to our sense of self when so much is lost when we are at our jobs and taking care of our families (yes, you dog moms too). To me, it's the same as my amazingly lovely Sister (Happy Birthday by the way!) going to get a pedicure or her hair done each month. Being creative is an act of self love and care and we all need that in life!
Get out and get crafty! What are your favorite crafts to do? How does the act of creating something make you feel after a rough day? Comment below because I wanna know!
