On the shuttle bus going to the Airport in Utah last week, there was a flight attendant and myself. (apparently flights at midnight are not popular in Utah)
We struck up a conversation and she asked me if I was an Artist.
I don’t know what made her ask me, maybe it was the paint on my arm or my artisan crafted bag (love this bag, it is a razor bag made in Nepal) that gave it away. anyway, I answered her with a “NO” and I wondered why I did that.
It made me think . . . . . . . . . . when I think of the word “Artist” I think of fine artists who paint sweeping scenery or stunning realistic portraits and I don’t do that.
Am I a Crafter ? Well the answer is both Yes and No. Do I do Art? Again the answer is both Yes and No so I decided to come up with a term that describes how I think of myself
and I came up with Craftist. I am both a Crafter and an Artist combined. So next time someone answers me I will be able to answer them. I am a Craftist!!
and for those of you interested here is a photo of my lovely bag. The bags are made in Nepal by skilled women who work with community based Fair Trade organizations.
