Countdown to 60 – 6 days to go

I am creative person. I like working a number of various crafts, particularly knitting and crochet. The creativity of that craft led me to create the Knit and Crochet Bible Study and publish 2 personal devotional journals as well as 2 group versions of those books.

I was intrigued when this quote came across in a recent google search. It truly describes ‘creativity’. When I work with any craft project there is a lot of experimentation. Will this work? what if I work it that direction instead? That doesn’t look right, how should I change it? Oops, let’s rip that out and try again.

I love the final description most – having fun. As a perfectionist I struggle with making something perfect. I was so embarrassed after giving a shawl with a row of crosses and cancer ribbons when I looked a picture I look of the shawl. It showed one cross made incorrectly. I had already given it to my friend. I looked it over and never saw the mistake, until I looked at the picture. The error was blaring – to me. I allowed that mistake (a significant part of creativity) to take away the experience of fun and joy I had in creating the shawl.

I have to remind myself there is no perfection in creativity. There is

  • inventing
  • experimenting
  • growing
  • taking risks
  • breaking rules
  • making mistakes
  • having fun

  • How do you express your creativity?
