I realized over the past few days that I need to refocus. I need to stop trying to keep up with other, more talented miniaturists. I need to check my motivation. Who am I trying to please, and why? Am I doing things because I want to do them or because I want to impress someone else? Has my hobby become a contest instead of a way to relax and enjoy my free time?
Last, but not least, am I having fun? I have come to a decision. I am NOT going to enter the Creatin' Contest. I am not going to build something I don't like. I AM going to start having fun again!
I went on a little shopping spree today. When things get tough, go shopping, right? :D
Here are the things I bought -
A new front door for the shop
Porch posts for the patio area
A dart board
New interior door
Now that I have my head together, so to speak, I can get back to work. No pressure. No one to please but myself. Thanks for your encouraging comments. I promise not to whine again.
I'm going to make some palm trees while I wait for my Ebay order to arrive. I love making palm trees! I'm also going to try to add music to my blog again. Music always helps lift my spirits. :D
Thank you for your friendship. Hope you have a beautiful day!
