I just wanted to share that, after all of my stressing and complaining and railing against my perceived shortcomings, something miraculous happened today.
I was able to relax.
...And, wouldn't you know it, as soon as I relaxed, I made two skirts.
I guess I have been putting so much pressure on myself to be perfect, that I haven't really been allowing myself the sloppy-messup-explode part of creating.
I need to remember that messes and failures are just part of the creative process.
And I need to let myself relax.
Speaking of relaxing--I hope everyone has a nice relaxing weekend! :)
