Blog prompt 16. July 28th, 2008. My Freedom, Shimelle's class.

Here I go today!!

16 - Tell your blog readers about someone who has been a creative influence in your life -- a crafty mum, aunt or grandparent, an influential school teacher or a friend who brought out your creative side, perhaps.

Well, I know I've always been kind of creative; as a child, I loved arts and crafts and did a great job at school. As a teenager, I used to wear colorful clothes and was so imaginative with my outfits when going out with friends.

As an adult, I knew scrapbooking was waiting for me since the beginning...


Someone creative in my life?? Let me think...
My dad's mom, who passed away a few years ago, used to do beautiful pieces of crocheted stuff as well as blankets out of squares of different kind of fabrics.
My dad has great hands; he can repair almost everything he finds broken, he has a great imagination when trying to find the way to repair stuff. When I was a child I used to stare at him while he was working in his room, his "laboratory" as he calls it, and I loved that feeling.
I can't think of anybody else right now...

As for my creative side, I don't remember how I discover scrapbooking but when I first went to the USA as an au pair for a year, I knew that it was one of the first things I wanted to explore.
I love to be able to express myself through paper & cardstock, scissors, glue,... paint, chipboard, brads & eyelets, ribbons & buttons...

I believe everyone has a creative side inside and that, if we dicover it and let it flow, we'll feel better...
