being creative. I think of of my best assets is not only my crafting abilities, but my ability to find creative solutions to problems. I think growing up as an only child meant that I had to fend for myself much of the time when a problem came up and my parents weren't around. I think I've gotten pretty good at finding interesting solutions to problems.
I also seem to have inherited my mom's flair for all things craft. She has more of a talent for the fine arts, but I am lucky to have received her eye for color and ability to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear (or an amazing bag out of fabric scraps). Thank goodness for her.
