To me, creating means to take something that is known to be in its raw form and transform it into something else. Fabric gets transformed into a quilt, a doll, a pillow case.. Felt gets transformed into holiday ornaments, finger puppets, a gnome hut or fairy cottage.
To recreate means to take something that is already something and make it into something else. A horseshoe into a petal of a steel flower, an old quilt into a decorative pillow, a wood pallet into a sign.
Creating and recreating is what brings joy into my life, it’s where I find that special place in a busy world.
