There really is a creative (mad?) genius inside.
I will often tell people I am not creative. I am a WAY better copy cat.
I would say I am far more CAPABLE than CREATIVE. And I am O.K. with that. I can do just about anything… I just need someone to tell what it is I will be doing.
EXCEPT FOR YESTERDAY Y’ALLS!
My kids are in a summer camp this week. And as all good summer camps do… each day has a theme. As much as I love to accessorize and such… I really don’t like to have to do it on a schedule. I am more of a “as the mood hits” kind-of gal… Or a random party.
Simply put, I am ill-prepared to accessorize according to a theme on a schedule, especailly when it involves people other than me (i.e. MY CHILDREN – FOR 5 DAYS STRAIGHT).
I realized it was crazy hat, hair and sock day 15 minutes before we had to leave Monday morning.
Great way to strat the week, ehh? The guilt. The pressure…
My mind raced. I saw images. I saw PIPE CLEANERS.
BOOM, I say… BOOM:
Friends. I have spent a good deal of my career as a mother feeling like my lack of on-demand creativity makes me less-than a mother.
But… every so often… there is a shining moment.
And based on the picture above… I nailed it.
Want a closer look? OK!
Here’s what you’ll need (a Crazy Pipe Cleaner Hat Tutorial):
- Pipe cleaners
- Hands to bend and twist said pipe cleaners
Please… please… hold your applause until the end…
OK. You can clap now.
