Summer Blog Challenge: Day 68

Today's Challenge: Tell a skill you wish you had. 

I wish I was more crafty and creative. I see so many cute ideas that other people think of and put into action, but I have to settle for being a copycat or customer of the crafty people. 

One of my best friends in the world is one of those types. She can make anything from anything. She recently gave me a birthday card that was really beautiful. I had to ask if she made it because it didn't look handmade but I know how good she is. She made it. Of course.Why couldn't I have talent like that?

I have another friend who makes a variety of crafts each fall and sells them to earn money for Christmas. I buy them from her to give for Christmas. Last Christmas she made personalized water bottles and wine glasses. The same friend also does flowers for weddings as a side income. Beautiful floral arrangements and bouquets. She is so gifted. 

Well, at least my friends are creative, right? I can always get my hands on some unique gifts!

  1. I think it's totally ok to copy other people's craftiness! Most of my life I've been told that I'm 'creative' - but I discovered recently that it's totally not true - I'm resourceful! I know how to find good ideas, and I know where to look for inspiration, but I'm not creative myself. And I've decided that's totally ok!
