is it ironic that i had a HUGE burst of creativity yesterday? when all of my supplies were neatly arranged in those cute boxes i shared the other day?
well i did. i had to make something. HAD TO.
it has been so dang long since i felt that way. but you know what i realized? i can make whatever i want to. i'm not being looked at to sell product or be innovative any more. i am not trying to come up with something new,reinvent the wheel. i am not trying to fit in with a certain mold. I CAN MAKE WHATEVER I WANT!
it's okay if it looks like all my other pages. it's okay if i mix brands and use something old.it's okay if i use doilies AGAIN it.is.okay.
so i sat down and played. and used whatever i wanted to. yes, granted…most of it is new MME. but i love it. and i wanted to use it. so i did.
i also used some jenni bowlin, and my new KP stamp. i mixed in a martha stewart envelope i've been holding on to for a long time…and of course a twogirlzstuff label.
and? i love it. welcome to the new me. the me that thinks scallops and doilies and flowers and labels and sequins are just fine. even if i use them on every single blasted layout. i didn't try to make myself use mist,but randomly i really wanted to use a stamp.WHAT? who cares? not this girl!!!
the one that really is going to start finally practicing what she preaches. that NO ONE CARES if my albums are trendy or "in". that NO ONE CARES if all my layouts look the same.NO ONE is going to be scrutinizing my layouts in this family and saying doilies AGAIN? butterflies AGAIN? that's not what it's about. sigh.
i feel so freeeeee!
