Creative vs Artistic
- I'm not creative, but I am artistic.
- I'm not artistic, but I am creative.
- I'm not artistic or creative, but I know someone who is.
I confess, I tend to use creative and artistic as if they mean the same thing (even though I know better). I understand that there are differences, but what is really meant by the words creative and artistic? What do the words mean to you?

using the ability to make or think of new things : involving the process by which new ideas, stories, etc, are created
having the quality of something created rather than imitated
being clever or original
relating to art or artists
