I am what I am

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! 
 Created this Lo with my bro (the o fell off & I have to find another) products are from Colorbok.
Pics from the Christmas parade at DL. I just wanted to recreate the fun vibe from that day.  product from this LO are Studio G.
Thanks for looking, have a great week!
