I have never been somebody who things just come naturally to me. I have gone from craft to craft trying to be ‘good’ at something. I finally realized that I used to love art, but I stopped and followed other fads. I had become growingly frustrated with projects that required computers. I mean the Cricut software is very temperamental. I was feeling like yes, I can do that stuff but, do I enjoy it? Well no. I spent most of my time being frustrated. So, I decided to get into card making. Along the way I discovered all of these amazing things people do with markers. I watched so many hours of YouTube videos and took various online courses. Then, I practiced, and I practiced some more. I took my markers everywhere. I wasn’t doing it for others but, I was doing it for me. Boy does that make a world of a difference.
Have you ever had that moment of wow; I’ve made a lot of progress! This was my moment; I was sitting waiting for my doctor to come into the room when a student doctor came in and saw me coloring the tree seen in this card. She asks me if I’m an artist. I was shocked. I love that she used that word and I love that I’m on my way to that! There really isn’t a better compliment! Have you had that moment in life, doesn’t have to be art, if so, what was it?
Thanks for reading. Until next time,
