Create-ability and Creativity

There is no denying that I am a creative brained person.  Some people are good at math and science and staying on task.  Other's are great at organizing and budgeting.  I, however am not good at any of those...but I do enjoy being creative, whether I am good at that is debatable but I at least enjoy it :) 
So, what about all of you out there who don't consider yourselves "creative"?  I have had so many people tell me, "I wish I could be more creative", "I don't have a creative bone in my body"...etc etc.  What do I have to say to all of you who feel that way?  Here it goes: You don't have to be creative to create.  Simple as that.  With so many amazing blogs in the blogosphere, you have just about any tutorial you can imagine available to you in a few seconds!  All you have to do is follow directions.  Someone else already did the hard part for you bu figuring out how to do it.  I just wanted to encourage all of you out there who don't feel capable of being creative and let you know that you can DO IT!!!  Don't be intimidated to try something out and if you fail at it, big deal, who cares?  You have no idea how many failed projects I have laying in pieces all over my craft room...just sitting there wasting away because I failed at my project.  I just push it aside and move onto the next thing. 
 With all that being said I want to put all of you creative and create-able people to the test. I am having a "CREATE" blog party link up!  You can link ANYTHING that you create! A recipe, a craft, a scrapbook page, a piece of homemade jewelry, a pretty flower bed that you planted, a homemade house cleaner...and the list goes on and on and on.  Sooo, get those wheels turning or get to blog searching for a fun tutorial to try out because I want to see your creations!!!!
For those of you who may not be familiar with blog parties:
1.  They're great for blog exposure
2.  They're fun and easy to link up to
3.  You get to share with others that you wouldn't normally be able to
4.  You get to meet new bloggers!
5. Did I mention they're GREAT for blog exposure???

I will leave the link up for a week so you have plenty of time to join in.
Be sweetie birds and link back :)

 on a total selfish note...I have a little request from any and all of you who feel I'm worthy of a thumbs up click.  Will you vote for me for Top 25 Mom-Shops?  You can vote once a day until April 25th by clicking the thumbs up symbol beside the vote here to help a mom out :) Thanks in advance! Love you all!

Hello! I just found your blog through the "top 25 mom-shops" and decided to check it out since I am a fellow army wife :) I love your creative-craftiness and I try (haha. sometimes failing, sometimes not!) to be creative and crafty, too :)

I guess I never really think of scrapbooking and recipes when I think of "crafty-ness" but that works for me! ;) I'll be linking back here with one of my original recipes.
