Ever get the feeling you're falling to "keep up"?
As in, you see what everyone else has and you feel like you should be having the same.
I have to admit, I feel that way when I'm viewing other scrapbooking blogs. When I see the finished projects that all those other scrappers have done, I start feeling like I failed at the hobby because my projects never look that good.
Same thing with my cooking. When I first started to get back into cooking few years ago, and started to read other cooking blogs, I was always starstruck by how beautiful, and easy their dishes were.
Mine never came out like theirs. In fact, 8 out 10 times, my dishes were disasters.
It gets intimidating to say the lest.
I was just on one of the scrapbooking sites, to see what some of the new products are for Fall/Halloween, and when I spotted some of the latest projects from the members on the site, I just felt so deflated.
They are just so good. I have to wonder where most of them find the time to work on their projects? These are people- mostly married working moms- who crank out twenty or more projects a week like they were just making tea.
Very detailed projects that use seven or eight techniques and themes per project.
There was a time in my life, about 20 years ago, when none of this would have even hit my radar. I have no idea why as I get older stuff like this has started to pick at me?
