I have always maintained that I am not an artist. I have a real envy of those who can take a sketch book and recreate wonderful scenes. My dad can draw and paint; and my 2 sisters follow in his footsteps. I, on the other hand, take after my mum. I may be up to a few stick figures scribbled on a piece of paper but that is the extent of my artistic ability. In my mind art = creativity. So if I cannot draw then I am not creative. Or so, the logic went in my grey cells.
Well, that is what I have always told myself. As I get older I am realizing that art is not the only area where a person can be creative. I am discovering a small area where my creative side can be indulged, without costing me a fortune. My daughters are extremely 'girly-girls' and they both have lovely medium to long ginger hair. Recently, I came across a marvelous place on Youtube: 'Cute Girls Hairstyles'. I have attempted a few styles already and they have not turned out too badly. So hopefully, I will learn more and expand my creative nature.
And when, I find an outlet for cheap fabric (locally or on-line), I will dust off my sewing machine and make some beautiful dresses to go with the fancy hairstyles. If I keep practicing both I will be ready in time for the eldest daughter's prom in 4 years time.
