I think it's no surprise to anyone that I think I make "weird" cards. On a good day, I like to call myself edgy and fresh, thank you Susan Opel for those adjectives. That conclusion came after a long blogging journey of trying to self identify.
Who am I and what message am I sending out?
I figured instead of trying to be clean and simple or layered and luscious, for which I adore both styles, I would instead focus on creating with a style instead of a category, so I try to keep those adjectives in mind when I create. Many times I wanted to bail either because of disappointment or because of feeling like my designs didn't measure up to that of my peers, but I hung in there because I love it and because I adore the community and the friendships that have come from doing it. Those of you who blog understand what I am saying.
Slowly, I accepted the fact that my designs are not for everyone, but one that I am proud of. I am not sure if my style is distinct or exceptional, but they are made with love and lots of thought. I have appreciated you letting me sneak in thoughts about kids, and fashion, and funny things I have found in my internet parusings.
All throughout this journey, Hero Arts has been with me. And so it gives me great pleasure to announce that I have been asked to join the team.
Yes! One of the biggest things I struggled with is worth. Am I worth this offering? Especially when I can name so many who are extraordinary in their creativity. But instead I will be thankful in the gift I was given and I hope you will be encouraging of my next journey with Hero Arts.
