I've always thought of creativity as synonymous with play ..
..that to be creative is a past time, something to be enjoyed, looked at, shared.
However, I am seeing now that creativity takes many forms..like being a creative cook, or using creative financing in balancing a checkbook.
Oh, come on, I can to cook..and well..OK, not so much the checkbook thing.
But for me it's still a pleasure. I just can't seem to get excited about creative laundry folding for example.
What...origami for underwear? Not so much. And towel folding? Well, yeah, I'll give you that one..at least on cruise ships. I love those little dogs with the sunglasses they put on your bed!
No, I've never been on a cruise, but I do watch the commercials, and they always show the towels folded into dogs..I wanna learn that.
OK, it's a pig..and if I found that on my bed..on an "all-you-can-eat"cruise ship, I'd be seriously ticked...
do. (can you imagine the work that'd be involved in folding a towel like me??)
How about socks? Nothing creative there- find two that match and viola! A pair..shaboom sha boom..
And the cooking thing? Yeah, you spend all day on "creating" a great meal, then they EAT it and it's like..pffffffttt..gone.
So I dabble. And because I have ADLD (attention deficit lazy disorder..wish it was "hyper") I can get absolutely crazy busy with a new project..and when I'm done..it's like "been there - done that" and move on.
I was with scrapbooking for years and maybe this fiber-altered-assemblage-college thingy is a natural spin-off. Hope so 'cos I kinda liked doing it..
Maybe I should try to find a "creative" way to get to spend more time playing than working..
I'm just saying...
