I like people who improvise.
The have great imaginations and ideas.
If something needs to be done they can figure out a way to do it.
No need to do something the way it has always been done.
Just tell them what is needed and they will find a way to accomplish the task
with what is available to them without making a big fuss.
Today, I think the most creative people are those who can improvise.
I got an Award! First blog award for me. It’s from Deirdra at
A Story Book World
Thank you, Deirdra. I am humbled and honored to be recognized for my writing here.
I am a collector of crafty things to do. When I see something that I just know is something I would like to do I collect the information about it. I then put the pictures and info some place “safe” so I don’t lose them. I haven’t lost a single file, although, some are so “safe” I haven’t seen them in years.
This to say I found a project I am going to have to do (read that collect). It is on a blog site I subscribe to that has lots of DIY stuff on it…lots of things for me to collect and keep safe. The blog is Centsational Girl and her post on no-sew pillow covers just got my creative juices flowing. I have several pillows that could use new covers or in a couple of instances, a cover. I can hardly wait to get started but wait I must—I have no cloth napkins.
Now see here is the problem, the no cloth napkins thing.
So I am going to put the instructions in a safe place and one day in the future, probably in the distant future, I will dig it out and remember that I really wanted to do this crafty thing. Sorry Kate, but I am a PROcrastinator. I really like the idea though.
Today, I am thankful that talented and creative people share their gifts. They are inspiring.
I really am planning on making these covers. Maybe somebody needs to hold me accountable. You up to it, my friend?
Today is Thursday December 2, 2010
I am rarely, very rarely, bored. I am not talking about the occasional bout of the “I have done the same thing for hours and I have had enough” doldrums. I am talking about being bored because your friends can’t come out and play so “I am stuck with myself” boredom. I don’t understand people who are often bored because they don’t have someone to entertain them. Either they are as dumb as a bag of grits or they don’t like themselves much. I mean really, how do people get bored? I think they must be boring people–they aren’t even interesting to themselves– how could they possibly be interesting to someone else?
Maybe I have an unusually developed imagination or a disorder of some sort. I can sit and think and wonder and dream for hours. If it wasn’t for daily stuff that needs done I think I could daydream endlessly and quite happily. Some, if not most, of my best decisions have come out of time spent talking to myself. I am most creative after extended periods of daydreaming, I think this is true of most people.
I guess those who are often bored are dull and uninteresting and not creative or entertaining and they don’t like themselves. How sad.
I am so thankful that I was given a healthy dose of imagination.
