Jump on our merry go round and join a group of artists/crafts-women as they link hands around the world and tell you a little about their lives in art a
We are group of 8 women from all over the world, we have got together in what would constitute an example of peaceful idea exchange and diplomacy, and agreed to come to our blogs once a month and share a bit more about ourselves.
We choose a question and all of us have to answer it in our blogs. It will be very interesting to read what each of us has to say, taking in account how much our lives and crafts differ.
This months question:
What is the scariest part of crafting
I don't think Im scared per se... I think the feeling which could describe what I feel about crafting is a bit of anticipation, or anxiety. I enjoy making different things. I get super excited at the prospect of trying something new. Acquiring new skills and knowledge and then mix them up with other older skills is always a thrill. Sure, sometimes this means wasting materials or...failing in the attempt... but that is a given part of the game. No one can go forward if he/she is not willing to experiment. You have to dare.
Scared of people not liking what I make? Nah... too egocentric I suppose LOL!
Scared of e-commerce? interaction with other faceless people behind a computer somewhere on the other side of the world? No, not really.
I think the only thing that could quilify ...just a bit, as a scary part of crafting would be ...mmmh that very first moment when I took the decission of putting it out for the world to see, and therefore, judge. It was that moment. Now it is passed and I am enjoying the ride. Is it dissapointing at times? yes... very. It's a learning process... but exciting, not scary.
To all of you out there who celebrate Halloween tonight... have fun!
