Oh, I am so so so so SO thankful for creativity!
My brain is constantly on, spinning with schedules, plans, ideas...it can actually get quite exhausting.
Everything I see runs through the "I Can Do Something With This" folder in my head.
I have been creating for (literally) as long as I can remember. I'm not talking about the traditional preschool crafts: we've all made those handprint turkeys, popsicle stick boxes, and (back in the '80s when it was still OK to be a smoker) mosaic ashtrays. For the record, though, the angel tree topper I made in kindergarten when I was 5 years old made it's 28th proud appearance at the top of my mother's Christmas tree this past season.
Today, as you likely know, I put my creativity to good use by channeling my inner artist to create my unique, one of a kind upcycled jewelry pieces. The business has been amazingly successful with the help of many, many, many people and resources...including creativity. For that, I am thankful!
