A few days ago someone asked me if I was 'artsy', my answer? No. I am not willing to hurl myself into a category in which I do not feel I belong. Perhaps it is the feeling of vulnerability I have when I make something, or the insecurity of suggesting I could make something worth buying. Perhaps it is the fact that I see the skill of others and whimper when compared. At what point does someone become an "artist" and who is the judge? We all know people who are self identified 'singers' or 'dancers' who, upon watching we think to ourselves "says who?!". Perhaps it is the fear of being placed in the "says who" category that keeps me from identifying as "crafty". That said, I do find the art of craft therapeutic. If, in that therapy I create something I find beautiful, yay me! If in that therapy I create something that you find beautiful, yay us! haha
