What defines Creativity?

I feel like I've had this conversation many times before. A bunch of us artists will be sitting at a bar or a party or a conference or something, questioning the finer aspects of art (What exactly is art? What is creativity? What's the difference between being inspired by a work and stealing it?) when the outcast of the group will say, "Why are we wasting our time talking about this stuff? Do you thing plumbers and steal workers sit around talking about the essence of plumbing?" Then, hopefully the rest of the group will ignore the comment and continue to dissect the finer points of the creative spirit.
That being said, It looks like these builders figured out a way of embodying my thoughts about Creativity: Do the best you can do with what you got.
