Sometimes when I give handmade gifts to people I get the wonderful response of, "Oh, you are so creative." This always gives me a warm fuzzy, but back in the corners of my mind I think, "No I'm not."
My husband will say that this is because I am excellent at beating up on myself. While this is true, in this case, that is not the reason for that thought. To me, a creative person is someone who comes up with something new and unique. All my handmade things are ideas I've mooched from magazines, books and the interweb.
Mooching ideas is more being crafty, not creative. In my opinion, being creative is coming up with something like this. Who knew Phillips head screws could create something so awe inspiring? I can't even sculpt with play dough. 3D screw portraits? Awesomeness.
