November 21 ~ Today I am thankful for the gift of creativity. I’ve been blessed with a flair for creating. I love to arrange things so that they are appealing to the eye. Being a slight perfectionist, I don’t like to stop til I’m satisfied that whatever I’m working on will be appealing.
I’ve always been creative … I have memories of helping make craft items to sell at my Great Aunt Ruth’s Annual Christmas Bazaar at her church. My Grandma taught me to crochet when I was 9 years old. I remember I crocheted a miniature afghan for Garfield Goose (a popular kids show when I was growing up) and sent it in to the show. I was so excited when they showed it and thanked me for it on TV 🙂
I’m older now, but still love doing crafts as a creative outlet. These days I enjoy floral arranging, making jewelry and scrapbooking. I’m part of a card making ministry at my church. Every month, we send handmade cards to all the seniors in our congregation. It warms my heart when they tell me how much they love them and how thankful they are to receive them.
I also love working on “behind the scenes” committees for stage plays. Working on live theater productions is always exciting … you never know when something is going to go wrong and you have only a couple of minutes to fix it. I’ve helped on costumes, sets and props. Props is definitely my favorite … I just love “getting in the zone” and working to create convincing scenes 🙂
