In the creative world, there are SO many different aspects to explore. And I LOVE to explore them all. However, I am NOT good at them all! I look at some designers and think "Man! Why can't I make cards like that!" or "I want to do jewelry like her!!" I look at pinterest and say "I want that to be my style"... and when I try to do or be these things... it doesn't work. It's not who I am!!! And then I found myself getting down and discouraged. I know this is something we have all done!! And it's no fun.
But then I came to a realization... A big one for me... Something I have always known...
I AM A SCRAPBOOKER!!!
I started this creative journey in scrapbooking and it was my passion! I lost that along the way... trying to be something I'm not... trying to be someone I'm not. God has blessed me with a gift. Why am I complaining and wanting the gift he gave to someone else? I feel like a spoiled child on Christmas, wanting what her sister got instead of her own gift!!! When in fact, the gift I was given, is exactly what I wanted!!!
Now that's not to say I won't still try other forms of creating! I love it all! But it's ok when those projects don't turn out as good as some peoples do. It's OK!!!! It's ok for me to go thru Pinterest and deeply admire the projects and styles that belong to other people! It's a good thing! They worked hard on those projects and they deserve to be admired!!! But I am thru being jealous!!!
I am so blessed to have the backing of three amazing companies! They believe in what I do! They love what I do! So I'm going to do my best in what I do! Because I LOVE IT!!! Thank you Spellbinders, Thank you Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko, and Thank you Zva Creative!!!
And THANK YOU to you... for visiting my blog, leaving comments, emailing me... for supporting me in such an amazing way! Even thru my crisis... LOL! I love when you comment "WOW! Thank you for showing me how to do that!! For Inspiring ME!" That's my goal, to inspire YOU! And I can only do that if I am inspired myself!!
So, if you have read this far, thank you. I just felt I needed to get that out there.
I am looking forward to all of the creating that is to come! There will be all kinds of projects to come, but I have a feeling there will also be a lot more scrapbook pages! :) Know why?
I AM A SCRAPBOOKER!!!
Than you all, You mean so much to me!!!
