There are a lot of folks out there who don't pursue their dreams because they believe they're missing the creativity gene needed to reach their goals. It is my belief that everyone has the ability to be creative. They only need a little inspiration.
When I was younger, my twin sister often said "you're the creative one", because I liked to draw, paint, write stories and I rarely let a picture in my coloring books go blank. My sister was the one we believed had more of an analytical side.
I got an English degree focusing on literature. She got an English degree focusing on grammar. I lost count of how many times I told her she had creativity, she just needed the right inspiration.
So, let me tell you about an analytical woman who got inspired. My twin makes quilts. Her quilts are absolutely lovely. Each quilt takes time and a lot of work, not to mention the loving care and precision it takes to place all those pieces together. I would never have the patience for that!
Nearly everyone in our family has a quilt made with love by Jerrie. So, since next month is our birthday (how many people can say that?), I thought I'd share a few photos of her creations. I tried to encourage her to sell some. Her response was that she makes them because she wants to, not because she has to. I lost count of how many projects she's working on. It reminds me of how many stories I have going. I think when you're inspired to create, no matter what course it takes, then it's impossible to just turn it off. I'm glad of that. Anyway, Happy Early Birthday, twin of mine!
