I cannot understand the difference between being imaginative and creative, sometimes I get either of the words but thinking or relating it to the other confuses me and I reach back to where I started. Could someone please help me?

This question is too basic; it can be definitively and permanently answered by a single link to a standard internet reference source designed specifically to find that type of information. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
The literal interpretation is that while they both come up with new, interesting ideas, the creative person follows up and creates the things he or she imagines, while an imaginative person merely has ideas.
