It may be all in the family- CREATIVITY that is.
My husband’s great uncle has a creative eye and artistic talent that he expresses from time to time. This time, his creation was fit for a King or Queen- it was a royal creation.
I love hearing about his latest challenges and successes with his photography, painting, welding, gourd painting, and now steel cutting. By trade, he is winding down his days as a farmer. So, he has a bit more time now to travel on his creative paths.
We recently went to Nebraska for a visit. When we went to Don’s place we were happily greeted with a platter of his home-made goodies and his company. After a tour of the farmland, photos and story swaps of days gone by, Don lead us into the living room.
He was so excited for us to sit in the chair that he recently had re-upholstered and was eager for each of us to take a turn sitting in it. In Don’s eyes, this chair must have reminded him of royal throne. The next question for you to ponder is: what is a throne without a person sitting in it with a crown on?
So…Don made a crown from some steel scraps and he added a few reflectors as the crown jewels. We all had a good time as we took our turns being a royal subject sitting in his chair. What will he make us do when we visit next time?
Creativity can be expressed for a certain purpose or just for the fun of it. We are glad that Don’s creations expressed a sense of humor. This particular visit was a memorable one because of it.
Do you have a family member that has a creative talent or expresses their creativity in a fun way? Let us know in your comment below. We’d love to know about other’s creative creations.
