But I’m just not crafty….

All too often I hear those words uttered by people who look at what I do and exclaim how lovely my cards are; how they would love to be able to create something like it but they “are just not crafty”. This makes me crazy – as if placing ink on a piece of paper is a hidden talent only bestowed upon the chosen few! NO! No No No – this just isn’t so! Everyone and I mean EVERYONE has the ability to put ink to stamp and stamp to paper to create a one of a kind art work. There is no secret sauce necessary for creating stunning and unique cards and other papercraft items. All it takes is a willingness to let go and have fun; to be open to trying new things. In the words of Maya Angelou “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.”

Oh how I love that quote! I have seen for myself how the more I work with my stamps, ink, and paper, the more I want to create and share my passion with others. Studies have shown that engaging in creative behaviors improves brain function, mental health, and physical health. A creative act such as stamping can help focus the mind, and has even been compared to meditation due to its calming effects on the brain and body. … Creativity reduces anxiety, depression, and stress. And the best news of all? EVERYONE has the ability to be creative and I can help.
