I sometimes (okay-nearly always) get frustrated when I finish a project. It never turns out as perfect as it is in my head. Sometimes I think that artists compare themselves to others too often. We really should just compare ourselves with ourselves.
I went through my older posts to see if I wanted to save any to an online gallery that I have. OH MY GOSH! I'm a bit mortified that I ever posted some of those cards. Wow, have I improved a lot!

I've come a long way! So if you're frustrated don't quit. Keep trying, look at other cardmakers that you like, enter challenges, get tips, use sketches (I think that has helped me the most), and only compare your work to YOU. Keep crafting, HUGS!
