Do you ever just look at the stuff you make and think… ‘It kinda looks like a fourth grader did it’? I feel that way a lot., especially after I have checked out craft fairs or on-line craft sites. How do you beat these feelings? People order, people compliment but I don’t think I’ve found my niche. I see stuff that people swarm to and wonder if I will ever get to that point. If I will ever be the cool kid at the party.
Here are some things that have been helping to inspire me in my recent inspirational void:
“Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over it became a butterfly” ~ Anonymous
I also search out http://www.funkyfinds.com
Then there is this http://inspireco.blogspot.com/2010/11/inspired-ideas-christmas-issue.html (Which I found THROUGH Funky Finds)
Of course there is Claudine Hellmuth whose art showed me a whole new world. You can visit her here http://www.collageartist.com/
I also like to call on my friends and family and make them tell my how wonderful I am!
What are your inspirations when you are feeling down?
I guess for now I will just keep creating because it makes me happy. I will hold on to the hope that, as I create, I will grow and transform. I will
probably find my voice.
Hope y’all have a great day!
