Creativity Envy

So, there's this thing going around the blogosphere. A giveaway of sorts. You know what I'm talking about...the one where the first 5 people to comment on the post gets something handmade from the blog poster. The catch is that you have to do the same thing on your blog. This is all very noble and good. It creates a chain of gift giving, which I am a full supporter of. I have wanted to do it every single time, but I can't. It's not that I'm too late to post a comment. In fact, because of my wonderful Google Reader, I would be the first or second commenter, thus insuring my free gift made by many fabulous creative friends. But I just can't do it. I have NO idea what I'd giveaway on my own blog. I'm just not a creative person. I have creativity envy. I do. So I can't possibly join in on this wonderful giveaway from the heart. But for all those participating, know that I really did want to comment...especially you Marse. I would have been your first comment and I would have LOVED to get whatever you were giving...but as much as I wrack my brain, I got nothin' to give -- at least nothing that you can send in the mail. I can't babysit your kids in another state, I can't package a hug, and I'm pretty sure a lasagna won't ship too nicely. So all you creative wonderful ladies out there, do your magic and know that one day I hope to be like you.

i don't believe it. i'm sure there is something. it doesn't have to be crafty, just handmade. i'm sure you've made PLENTY of things with your hands. give a collection of your favorite recipes...and you write them out rather than the giftee. no one likes to WRITE out the recipe. or a fun little notebook for writing since you're going to be a famous writer one day. you can think of something. you've got all year. :)

Yeah! How about a small packet of your darling homemade cards?!??!

Erin Ames said...

I agree with Heidi! As I was reading that post I was thinking...Has she totally forgotten about her awesome cards? How can you make your own cards and not be creative? But, I can relate to your feelings...just call me the copier....I admit that all of my creativity comes from copying others...and am sure I have none of my own.

Oh, my goodness! I don't even believe you. I've seen the reupholstered chair, the refinished dresser, etc. You are extremely creative.

Ditto what everyone else has said... :) I think it's not that you're not creative, because you DEFINITELY are..., it's that you are taking Samantha to appointments, watching your two kids, etc, and are so much busier than the rest of us... you just don't have too much free time right now.

Thanks for the shoutout. Just for that, I'll send you something. :)

I was not fishing for compliments, that's for sure. But thanks...but really...I was trying to say how in awe I am of my good friends. I feel honored to know such wonderful women.

Jenny, honestly that dresser you did with the fun polka dot paper was creativity at it's best. I looked at that and thought it was AMAZING!
