Are you the 'Doer', or the 'Idea Person'?

I just decided this morning that, in a lot of ways, I'm the "Idea Person"! I love to collect pictures/plans for neat stuff. I'm very well organized, love to look at them, etc. Very seldom do I bring them into existence!! LOL

If it's something that just HITS me, I gather up the "stuff" and do it. (Or coerce my DH into doing it or helping me!) The majority of the ideas, however, stay in a notebook and I just dream about them.

I need to get with somebody who is extremely "crafty" and share all my ideas with them.

What about you? "Doer" or "Idea Person"?

I'm definately an "Idea Person". Too bad I can't sew or do decorative painting - I'd be doing a lot more projects! DH helps me with a lot of my projects since he does some woodworking and has the tools. He's always skeptical at first when I explain my latest idea, but he is always pleased with the end results!

I'm both. I'm the idea person and the one who if it's going to get done has to do it.
I'm always putting something togethter or taking something apart to make what I want. I swear sometimes it's a disease.
Thing is I past it on to my daughter...talk about parental revenge! LOL

Another idea person. It's a curse. I have a room full of crafting stuff I've kept for ideas. I rarely finish a project. If I get back to an idea I add so much extra stuff on, it's no longer the same project.

I am another idea person--have collected way more patterns, pictures and lists of items to do than I will ever get done. Like you, it gives me pleasure just to pull them out and look at them--but I feel really great when I actually finish a project and bring an idea to life! Luvs

RE: Are you the 'Doer', or the 'Idea Person'?

Well, I'm both. I come up with ideas and then do it. If it's something I'm not REALLY keen on, then it won't get done. If it's something I need help with, well it will be done up to that point and then I bug DH for weeks to help finish!

Like last night he finally used his new drill bits to drill a hole in the top of a mason jar lid so I could make a soap dispenser! I can drill a hole, I just needed him to get the right size for me! A LOT cheaper than the $20 they sell for!

I miss my husband and his help with my projects. He used to get so involved and excited. My biggest fan..... I was the idea person and the doer also, but he helped make it happen!

((sistersunnie)) I am so sorry.

I'm both, first the idea, usually from just looking at something or it pops in my head. I tell my sisters that "I see things." Then I'm the doer, but alot doesn't get done cause there is so much more to take care of first being I do it all by myself. Oh well, I have tons of things to look forward to is all, it's a good thing.

(To Sistersunnie - my condolences also.)
