It’s kind of lame but my brain is shot. It’s a good topic though.
We all have our own reasons for crafting/creating, be it in wood or recycled goods or food or paper or fabric or…? I think I was born with a creative gene. Not being able to exercise that gift would be for me, like not breathing. I love beautiful, colorful, sparkly things. i also think there’s a bit of pride involved too. I feel that in most cases I can do things better! Can I really do it better? Most of the time I think so, other times I have to take my hat off to those who are more capable at it.
My husband believes I am too busy and says things like, “You need to stop doing so much”. My answer is “What should I get rid of? I love everything I do.” They are my passions. I figure I can sleep when I am dead.
Right now, I am tThe Tomato Lady, I sell 7500 tomato and pepper plants for about a month a half in the spring of the year. The rest of the time I am a freelance graphic designer and the creativity just spills over into the greeting cards I make, the embroidery I do, the quilts I sew, the earrings I make, my flowers, even the food I cook.
I live therefore I create. Why do you?
