Little Botanical Drawings
Burl and I have been busy blending oils and making candles the past few days. I'm working on getting a shop update done in the next few days. I'm always hesitant to share my work, I want things to be just so perfect. And they never are. I feel my crafts always have room for improvement, this is why I shy away from displaying them more often. But I'm trying to let go of that a little more. I've been inspired by the blogs and shops of other crafters, like here and here.
This lack of artistic self esteem is yet one more trait I've inherited from my mom. She's a fabulous artist, and yet has no idea how talented and creative she really is. Her self-criticism often blocks her artistic flow. Doesn't mom?
Now that I'm realizing this, and actually verbalizing it by writing my thoughts for the world to read, (ok, maybe just the two of you who read my blog), this should encourage me to let go more. Shouldn't it? So stay tuned for more posts about the little crafty things I'm working on...that's my plan, at least.
