1. You never throw anything away because you’re convinced that “it’ll come in useful”
Admit it. There’s a box under your bed full of useless objects that you’ve been hanging onto for ten years and that you’ve NEVER used. And to be honest, you probably never will!
2. Pinterest is your kind of social media
Facebook and twitter are OK, but the day you discovered Pinterest changed your life forever. And whats more, you don’t just spend hours browsing Pinterest. Well OK, yes you do, but unlike most people, you actually make the DIYs you pin!
3. You can wield a gun better than James Bond – a glue gun that is 😉
Its no secret that a glue gun is every DIY-er’s best friend. And no wonder – there’s basically nothing that a bit of hot glue can’t fix!
4. You refer to your messy bedroom as your “artistic space”
So yeah, technically speaking you haven’t cleaned your room in six weeks and maybe you can’t see your desk underneath the pile of junk on top of it. But honestly that’s just because you’re an artist. The creative mind doesn’t like structure. Also your lazy, but that’s besides the point.
5. You’re the ‘art’ kid at school
Ever since you made that awesome poster in primary school or won that drawing competition, everyone knows you as the ‘art’ kid. You rule the art classroom and all the other students calls you the ‘Art Master’ (OK, no they don’t – but you get the idea 😉 ) .
6. You doodle on everything
Literally, its slightly worrying. Your notes, your homework journal, your hand… everything around you is just covered in ink.
7. Since you were a kid, you’ve been getting craft kits for Christmas
All artsy teens have that one cabinet in their room full of all the craft kits they’ve collected over the years. Candle making, crocheting, vase painting, DIY jewlery… seriously, we own every craft kit imaginable.
8. You get random bursts of motivation that can last anywhere from 2 minutes to 4 hours
We all have those mornings when we wake up and suddenly we’re inspired to write a novel or redecorate our entire room. Unfortunately this motivation usually doesn’t last long enough for anything really important to get accomplished.
9. You’re a problem solver
Artsy teens love a challenge. In fact, coming up with ideas to solve a problem is our idea of fun!
10. You’re unique and individual
Where’s the fun in ‘following the crowd’? You have your own sense of style, your own ideas, your own opinions and don’t let anyone else tell you otherwise.
