I am from a very creative family. My dad is an artist (paints and used to design book covers…for Max Lucado even…now he is an author) My mom designs and creative beautiful quilts and her landscaping is to die for! One sister is an extremely talented artist and the other can design her home like a magazine. My children even have a creative bent, either writing, sculpting, drawing, and painting.
I love creativity in any form. Of course, I love the power of words and the worlds they create, but I love the beauty of words, as well. My father taught me calligraphy many years ago and I have used that skill to create cards and a few different framed pieces. There is something special about taking the written word and adding color and imagination to enhance the greatness of languange.
During Spring Break I went to a Scrapbooking Party and I made cards. I love having homemade cards around to write more words in! 🙂 I can’t keep up with photos, but let me make cards, and I can crank them out. I’ve also made jewelry, tiled flower pots, beaded tin baskets, crosstitched, made decorative books, and many other crafty things.
It’s all about creating. Building something out of nothing. Making something of beauty and worth. Using the imagination God gave me to forge something of value…well, it may only have value to ME!!! lol
So how do you express your God-given creativity?
