What is it with me and creativity?

February 12th 2018

How did I get into this creativity path anyway?

Creativity always saved the day during all my school years. I remember winning an art contest in the third grade, I am the only witness to that. I was always encouraged by teachers to write,even through my Masters Degree.

During my teaching and librarian years creativity fueled my plans, displays, story telling and making those jobs fun. Fast forward to my 40s where the creative itch got too big to ignore.

I started a blog to document my creative projects and encourage myself to create and be accountable by posting about it regularly. (Enter Instagram, blogging stopped…until now)

Then this quote by Erma Bombeck “When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, ‘I used everything you gave me’. became a spiritual conviction for me that I really wasn’t using my God given talents to the extent that I could.

My problem is I like to create in many mediums, personalizing things with details is my favorite, but I also love to paper craft, sew, quilt, paint so choosing ONE THING for a business “Creating Passion to Profit” has been very challenging and am still trying to find the right path for me.

I did make some quilt patterns of which this Sea Horse is my best seller! I am still learning a lot about myself regarding how I am wired, my tendencies and triggers and I am making progress.
