Chapter One Acknowledge your creative self
I guess I have some creative talents I never thought of them being anything great. I can embroidery, interior design, repair and fix quite a few items, scapebooking which I’m copying off my blog and every 25 pages or so I make a special page for my boys.
Someday I’ll give them it not sure when.
I don’t mind getting down and dirty when I create so gardening and ceramics vast interest and joy.
I’ve played the violin for 7 years and I’m fairly good at problem solving
confession time when people are amazed or tells me one of my pieces are nice I would challenge them by saying “ Oh it nothing do you want me to point out my mistakes” I never real looked at my self as a creative person because I don’t have degree in any of these creative arts
Before the days of plastic bags my mom who was thrifty and I want to draw. She would let me decorate groceries brown bags and my dads sandwich bags.
My mom during the holidays would make big batch of sugar cookies. The neighborhood kids and I would be at the kitchen table decorating these sugar cookies, and when I was in Kindergarten I got highly praise and my teacher showed the entire class the clown I did.
As for ceramics I found a ceramic shop and did a piece and was hooked on it, start to cast ceramics and ended up buying the shop.
Thankful time…my mom taught me how to be a free thinker and to make cessions on my own
As for rest of my creative talents not sure where I picked them up but I’m still learning and growing
Well I start being creative with my ceramics once again. I real don’t have much time to be creative as I like but it place to start up again.
I know this piece is a little off for this time of year but Yule season will come about again
