I have a really bad habit on dwelling on things that I shouldnt. I think its become a habit as Ive done it for many years. Its one of the things im REALLY good at.
Recently I came across a website that has basically got me doubting my ability to 1) make anything original and beautiful and 2) be able to sell said original and beautiful work. Before I go on, this is not a post intended to make you feel sorry for me or to fish for compliments. Its merely how I feel.
The blog is written by a woman named Kelli. Her designs make me want to cry. They are the kind of designs I want to do. Now that I have found them (and her) I kind of feel like the work I wanted to do cant be done as its already been done and knowing of their existance now kind of makes me a 'wanna be'. It took me 3 days to read her entire blog, from start to finish. I can get obsessive too.
Hubby tells me that its alittle hard to come up with something truely original. There are, after all, 6 billion people on the planet. But still, to come across Kelli's work has kind of put a weight around my heart. Sounds pretty dramatic hey. She is also a melbournian and has 4 kids and still pumps out this gorgeous work like its no effort.
I intimidate myself really. I continually look at these blogs and psych myself out. its a hard habit to fix. Maybe I should just put the computer somewhere out of reach and just get on with the job I want to do.
I suggest you do visit her site Dont look now . Her work is truely beautiful.
As for me, I'll just have to continue thinking of something Sew Sofie....
