I also have a habit of comparing my creations to those I see on other blogs and Facebook groups. Of course, in my mind, my cards seldom measure up. Today I decided that I was going to create SOMETHING no matter what!! So I created one of those "thinking of you" cards to send to a friend who is experiencing a major life change this next week. I hope that she'll overlook what I see as imperfections in the card and will instead see my heart for her. I have been in her shoes and want her to know that she too will survive!
I share this with you because I wonder if possibly you're telling yourself any of the following untruths -
I'm not creative; I'm not talented; I'm not as good as; I'm not (fill in the blank). The truth is YOU ARE and I AM. We are each created uniquely and bring our own gifts to this world. I've decided the key is to just begin. So I'm doing something I encourage you to do if your creative juices aren't flowing. I got a little jump-start inspiration from one of the blogs I follow. I made the card shown below and put it in the mail to my friend today. I can't tell you how good that feels!! The pictures aren't the best, but I refuse to wait until I can get the perfect shot to post!
My plan is to build up a gallery of cards that you will be able to draw on when you need inspiration -- and directions! You'll be able to click on a link that will take you to a gallery of my projects with a supply list and directions to create that project for yourself.
Will you join me in just beginning?
From my heart,
