I wouldn't say I am a master by any means, but I love learning new things each day and I encourage my students to be curious and nurture their sense of [wonder].⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have read that it takes 10,000 hours to master a skill (possibly brain surgeons and pilots?), but often we don't need that many hours to gain excellent skills for our own needs. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We all start somewhere, start your creative journey today.⠀⠀
I have always been creating. Since a very early age I remember creating crafts and creations with my Grandmother. I have very embarrassing photos of us in the 80's and 90's at craft sales and markets all dressed up for the "theme" (ugly xmas sweaters) selling our creations. I made a pair of decorative wooden scissors for a christmas tree decoration - I remember my Grandma was having a craft sale in her basement and someone purchased this decoration - I received my first $5 note for something I created and from that moment I knew I had a magic power of sorts! From that day on, I kept creating. I will try to dig up a photo of us at a craftsale and add to this post one day. What is your earliest memory of creating something? I'd love to know in the comments below!
