This happens to me all the time... Craft insecurities are my #1 hardship in life :-)
oh my word this is the story of my LIFE! I can make something for MY house - but I really really struggle making things for other people! Everything homemade is imperfect, and that scares me!! I shared this on my FB page because I think so many other people can relate!!
I can definitely relate! I always feel the same way, even if I'd be happy to be given the same thing as a gift it makes me nervous they'll hate it.
I am the exact same way but I also start to wonder if it will fall apart in a few months. Did I put enough glue? Did I hammer enough nails in? That sort of thing. But honestly, I think you run the risk of the person not liking it even if it was store bought. You never really know if it is something that they will want. I say you just have to go for it!
I'm too scared to even try crafts, so kudos that you go that far! However, I think it is ADORABLE and anyone would be CRAZYYYY not to love it!
OMG I'm the SAME way!! I love making cards, and trying out new crafts, but I never feel mine look exactly like I had wanted it to in my head. I think your letters are wonderful, though!! I love them!!
I also have crafty insecurities. It doesn't help that my BFF is awesome at crafts, so I am constantly comparing our projects!Your letter is totally cute though - you did a fantastic job and I'm sure they'll be proud to display it!
You're not alone, my friend. I think we all have these issues about one thing or another.As I said yesterday, I think it looks great. I'd hang it happily on my door or on my wall if I was given this, cause we all know, I would never make this myself being the non crafter that I am. Emily at Amazing Grapes
I feel this way too...that's why I can't make crafts for other people :) The R looks fabulous though!
ok so cute!!
I need to know how to do this!!!
totally craft insecure. I go in seasons of being crafty bc I have to be in a good place to really enjoy the work that I turn out while I'm being crafty.It's too much work to do projects and then not like them or 2nd guess yourself....I recently made a burlap wreath, and I actually loved it. yay...growth!
