I pulled out a stamp I've had for a little while to make tonight's card. I can feel a little bit of the creative mojo returning. I need to relax with it and not worry about how my paper work compares to others. I enjoyed working on the little tyke with the phone and putting her card together. There are no new techniques or 'oh wow' effects. Maybe I don't have what it takes - or maybe I do. When I feel up to challenging myself, I do. Sometimes all I need to do is make a very plain card that takes 10 minutes to feel good about what I'm doing. Other times I need to fuss and fiddle for a couple of hours to feel satisfied. It should be about me, fulfilling my creativity and not worrying about if I'm 'good enough' to meet someone else's standards.
So tonight I made a simple stamped card, but one I'm pleased with and would give to a friend with pride. It's all good!
And now as for Kennedy, he knows when he's had enough.
