Thoughts for Thursday

“Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.”

There was a time ,not long ago when I had stopped making ATC's or doing any kind of art for fear that it wasn't good enough or not as nice as other people's.
I was miserable!I learned to let go of that way of thinking when it comes to my art.I just love creating way too much to let fear or criticism get in the way.I am my own worst critic!I know I've got a lot to learn and all kinds of things to explore and dabble in.So what if it isn't perfect, so what if I have tons more passion than talent???I had to tell my self "That's okay"!
Crafting is very therapeutic for me.It's the only time I feel relaxed and able to let go of the day to day worries!
I love doing many things.I like paper crafts,beading, cross stitching,drawing,painting,photography... and the list goes on.Perhaps that is why it takes me so long to "master" soething.But is art about mastering"?
I'll keep doing what I do and love it!I think the love will make everything else fall into place!So if you ever get as insecure as I do: JUST LET IT GO! Don't stop doing what you love out of fear! just imagine if Picasso,Van Gogh or famous others had given up!
I am so ,so lucky to be able to visit so many other blogs chock full of inspiration!
It just keeps me growing,learning ,exploring new possibilities!

Here is an ATC I made for a swap on swap-bot.
The person I'm sending to has a huge love for Raggedy Ann.I happen to love that doll as well!
Anyhow it was a pick a word ATC and of course I picked two.But I found it so fitting!
It's just a simple little card and I hope she likes it!

The world of reality has limits; the world of imagination is boundless.


Rousseau, Jean-Jacques
