I wish I could be. I never have been, but I like those who are.

Nah, but I'm good at doing stuff well, so that makes up for it.

Interesting question. I've always admired creative people. I'd really like to be able to draw landscapes and portraits but I've never progressed passed matchstick people. If inventions were left to me you'd be in the dark ages still. However, give me a plan/ blueprint or mudmap and I could give you a house, a boat or a piece of furniture.

Oh I can't draw to save my life, but that doesn't mean I can't make stuff. Or paint stuff.
Mmm painting stuff. It's been a while.

If you can make a thing and like doing it as well as you can, you’re creative.

I’m pretty creative, but often frustrated by a lack of some artistic skills-like drawing- so I can’t always make the things I dream up. But I manage to muddle through sometimes.

I am creative in certain fields which have gained me a small level of success. But not musically, unfortunately.

I think I was more creative when I was younger, Maybe it was either function of time or motivation. It seems these days work pretty much drains all my energy. I have always wanted to do more woodworking and for a bit did several small projects. Now I tell myself once I retire I will get into it, but who knows.

Haven't you posted some pics of thigns you've made? A bracelet, I remember?

I'm not very creative. I've been trying to pursue some more creative activities the past year or so (painting, woodworking) but have to admit I'm way better at following direction than at creating something for myself.

I'm not real creative but I'm a good technician. When people praise my knitting I'm like 'yes, yes, I can follow instructions well'

That's true for me too. If we're talking creativity strictly in the artistic sense, I've got nothing.

Yes, I’ve posted pics now and then over the years. I mostly do things to amuse myself, to add a one-of-a-kind decorating touch, or as a gift/special request.

I am only creative with language. I got kicked out of art class in grade school, because I hated drawing. I've been playing classical piano for 37 years now, and can barely improvise. But I spend most of my waking hours distorting language, mostly English, because I'm good at it. And I love doing it.

I am a very creative genius, that I can tell you.
This is the only musical: the mouth. And hopefully the brain attached to the mouth. Right? The brain, more important than the mouth, is the brain. The brain is much more important.
