I have often been told I am a creative person. Creative? Hmmm… I am afraid I don’t agree. I side with King Solomon who said “there is nothing new under the sun”. Is there really anything truly original anymore? Isn’t most everything a spin off of something else?
So I embrace what I am – I am great at recreation! Not the “leisure and recreation” type of recreation (although laying in a hammock on a sunny day does sound enticing!) – more the making something new out of something old. Taking something tattered, rejected and out of date – and making it purposeful, beautiful and worthwhile.
In light of this, I welcome you to my blog – and to my projects. I plan to share techniques, step by step instruction and finished projects – some of which will be available for sale. Use them, copy them, re-create them! Be inspired, be encouraged and be adventurous!
recreation (n.) late 14c., noun of action from past participle stem of recreare “to refresh, restore, make anew, revive, invigorate,” from re- “again” + creare meaning “refresh oneself by some amusement” is first recorded c.1400.
