Crafty? ...

This was an interesting prompt for the class...about being crafty... I journaled about my true feelings for this topic...

And how do I feel? Well, I think a lot of people close to me would definitely say that I'm "crafty". Me? I don't think I'm REALLY crafty/creative. I WANT to be creative and I ENJOY doing crafty things a lot. But I don't feel like I'm truly "creative" in the sense that I take the word to mean. I'm sure I'm too hard on myself. But a truly creative person, to me, is someone who has these brilliantly unique ideas ...and I never feel that's really me. Also "thinking outside the box" is very hard for me...again a quality that I think truly crafty/creative people have...something that I wish I was much better at. As I said though, this is just my personal opinion and I'm sure I'm faaar too hard on myself as usual LOL! After all, I only figured out this week that I'm very much of a perfectionist (like waaay too much for my own good) LOL!

I love your LO! I feel the exact same way! I want to be creative, but the reality of it is that I'm a scraplifter. And, I'm okay with that!
