For many years I have wanted to get noticed by the scrapworld. I dreamed of one day being published but, after my brief time off and creative break I have discovered that all I really want to do is create. The external validation is no longer a goal. Would I mind, well...no but, I am no longer going to pursue it. No, I was not terribly aggressive in my pursuit but I think that the acknowledgment to myself has been a big step. I accept that "I am what I am and that's all that I am" I embrace my style & enjoy trying different things but I am going to be honest.... admitting to myself that I don't need to be published to validate my craft has been huge. There was a time when I was up on all the trends & knew every manufacturer, I couldn't wait to see the new products from CHA & I eagerly placed my pre-orders for the latest and greatest. Lately however, I have been out of the loop. I have no idea what the current trends are and that's OK!
Thanks for looking, have a great week!
