Forced Creativity

The red one is me.
The red one is me.

Envision the square peg in a round hole. Just not fitting into the niche of  “artsy”  BUT!!! NOT FOR A LACK OF TRYING!!! This is one of those things that intermittently through my life I have tried to be the Martha Stewart of Christmas or dreamt of having my own craft show like Carol Duvall. I envy those I meet that exude “artsy”  The domestic and creative celebrities.  They make it look so easy.  They wake up full of creativity….I wake up full of something, but it has never been creativity….I have forced it just like the square peg. I’ve banged it and hammered it, screamed at it and sometimes sworn and cried….but I don’t easily give up…..nope, because every once in a while I have small victories. (That’s one of George’s sayings). It keeps the momentum going. Sometimes he just has to remind me that even though it’s baby steps it’s still forward not backward…..
