Combo Challenge

As if one challenge was not enough (JBS Chicki's Challenge), I had to combine it with Ali Edward's AEZine challenge this week. Ali's challenge was to write your Creative Manifesto. I loved made me think about why I spend the time I do on scrapbooking and creative things. It made me think beyond "why I scrapbook" -- to why do I put the hours into creative things that I do in addition to scrapbooking. My answers showed me that being creative isn't "just a fun hobby" but rather something that I feel passionately about -- mostly that it is an expression of who God made me to be and it is a form of legacy to leave to my loved ones that will remain after I am gone. Here is my Creative Manifesto.
I CREATE as an expression of
the gifts and talents God gave me.

I CREATE to remember the
past and to document the present.

I CREATE to discover new
things and continue learning.

I CREATE art, document life,
and record things that might
otherwise be forgotten.

I CREATE in order to leave
a legacy for those that will come
after me -- that they will know
of my faith and the joy that has
been my life.
