In the stamping world, I find inspiration from so many things...window shopping, a front porch, a swatch of fabric, and in this case, a great piece of writing!!
A great friend of mine, known as Peggysue on SCS, wrote an article recently on a blog that is new to me. I am including a link :http://womentowomensharingjesus.blogspot.com/ so you can have the pleasure of reading it for yourself!
I have a long time affection for ducks, so her title caught my attention right away! Even though Peggysue's words weren't related to stamping, my mind settled on these things. I thought about how even in stamping, I go through times when I don't know where my style fits in, or somedays, even what my style is. If I compare myself to others I easily become discouraged and lose my joy of creativity. While I enjoy learning different techniques, I sometimes become overwhelmed with all the new and latest die cuts, gadgets, and now the world of digi images is emerging. Sometimes I just want to run and hide. So rather than run, I think I will waddle on over to my stamp desk now... and find contentment and happiness with creating in my own little corner.
Thanks Peggysue, for inspiring me with your words and insight.
And I've given this some thought...there is only one kind of duck I don't want to be...look at my card...you've heard of a "sitting duck..." so I will keep moving and hope you will read the entirety of Peggysue's entry and be blessed!!
Oh, and this uses this week's Mojo Monday sketch which you can check out on my sidebar.
Thanks for stopping by today!!
