As some of you may already know i have been invited to be part of the design team at Crafty Boots, i feel incredably honoured and more than a little scared at this news, but Stephanie-Emma has ensured me that i dont always have to make a card! So there may be the odd opportunity for my dark side to make an appearance ;).
For those of you out there who are thinking that their work isn't good enough then listen to others, we are all very good at putting ourselves (and our work) down and comparing themselves with others, i am very guilty of this one, it can sometimes be hard to look at your own work and see how good it is or where there is need for improvement. Crafting should be primarily for most of us a fun way of relaxing and getting away from it all for a while, i always though i would never make things that other people would like and really does it matter? If you aren't happy then ask someone who's work you respect to help you and be prepared to listen and take the constructive advice you should hopefully get.
I have been very lucky in having lots of time off recently and it has honestly helped the standard of my work but i also ask the experts, they should be flattered you are asking them!!
Anyway lecture over, over the next coming weeks i will be asking for lots of help from various people so be warned! lol.
