When crafting anything, I think you just have to do the best you can. Afterwards, it's okay to self-evaluate and offer yourself constructive criticism, because no one is perfect, therefore, anything we create cannot be perfect either. That being said, love what you do, love the process, and love what you've crafted. It's not about being perfect or 'good enough', it's about having fun, not staying idle and always improving.
I know my hand-stitches are a little lopsided and probably should be closer, the heart is too smudgy for my taste, etc. I think I'm especially hard on myself sometimes because I put my content on the internet after I'm finished so I always think about my readers and if they'll like what I created. What if it's too plain? Does it look too handcrafted and not professional enough? Did I take enough pictures? Are my pictures good enough?
The moral of the story, whether you have a blog or not, is to just be real, do the best you can, and grow from your experiences. We all make mistakes and everything is a learning process. Don't be too hard on yourselves, no one knows the answer and no one is perfect, only more experienced and more learned.
This card was modeled after this one, but of course, I added my own twist!
I appreciate all of my readers, especially the ones who take the time to comment, it means a lot and helps to keep me going. (: This card was created for my boyfriend's Aunt, Lorie. She's such a sweetheart and always goes above and beyond what she needs to do! I'm happy and grateful that I have her in my life, as well as boyfriend, of course. (;
Hope you all had a great weekend and are enjoying your Memorial Day- let's take a minute to appreciate everything that the men and women in the armed forces have done for us, and how much they, along with their family and friends have scarified for us all. Especially in this day's remembrance, let's think about those who have made the ultimate sacrifice- we thank you more than words can say.
