I have a lot of people tell me they aren’t creative or crafty in or out of the kitchen.
I don’t believe that’s true.
I believe that all of us, no matter who we are, have a little bit of art inside us of us.
The definition of an artist is: a person skilled at a particular task or occupation, a person whose work shows creative ability or skill, a person who displays in his work qualities required in art, such as sensibility and imagination.
That’s all an “artist” is and we all have those skills and abilities in one way or another.
I can’t free hand draw, or paint beautiful water colors, or sew well, or sing well, play a sport, or even play an instrument.
But I can create. And I think creation is art.
I love to create a beautiful garden, a comfortable home, I love to create recipes, little craft projects, and I also enjoy making healthy face and body products.
Trust me, if any of it was difficult drudgery, I wouldn’t do it.
Art is something you LOVE to do that comes naturally to YOU.
Yesterday I focused on making an organic anti-aging night cream.
It’s simple to make, it’s luxurious, and it’s a special treat for yourself and your loved ones.
