And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. -Anais Nin
In my craft room, there’s a wrinkled yellow Post-it note with the words, “creativity takes courage”, scribbled on it. It’s written in basic black ink and looks like chicken-scratch at best. But when crafting, it brings comfort when trying to figure things out.
Ask any creative and they’ll tell you how each project requires courage.
Courage to dream, to make, to share, and to try again when you fall flat on your ass.
Let’s be honest. It’s safer to not try or to let our stories remain untold. To pretend we don’t have anything of value to offer this world. To protect ourselves from criticism, failure, and discomfort. But, this way also robs us of growth and prevents us from unleashing our true potential.
In today’s Craft Talk, I create a scrapbook layout using products from the August Hip Kit Club while talking about personal growth and risk-taking. You’ll get tips on how to cultivate creativity, courage, and confidence in your life.
