I must start by saying that I cannot believe April has flown by, and nary a post from me, for shame! However, in my (weak) defense, I throw myself on the mercy of the craft court, a kitchen renovation can really take it out of you, even when you aren't the one doing the super heavy lifting.

"There is no such thing as a creative type. As if creative people can just show up and make stuff up. As if it were that easy. I think people need to be reminded that creativity is a verb, a very time-consuming verb. It's about taking an idea in your head, and transforming that idea into something real. And that's always going to be a long and difficult process. If you're doing it right, it's going to feel like work."
And I was pretty floored by it, so naturally I had to google who this person was...which in turn inspired me to make this...(on my doodle buddy app)
documentary film about him ...
Now, I'm no professional creative type, but I totally get what he means. And I agree creating things feels like work, but it also feels like something I just MUST DO!
What do you think?
