Your post really hit home for me - thank you! Trying to be perfect at creative endeavors really sucks the joy out it for me, but I do it constantly. I love to make and send handmade cards. I'm totally mortified if one isn't perfect and often I won't mail it out. Do I really think the recipient will notice if something is slightly crooked or there's a tiny smudge? No, they'll just be happy to know that I took the time to make something for them and I'm thinking about them. But it feels like a total reflection of my worth - a defining point, like you said. Let's all aim for a little imperfection and mediocrity in 2011!

This is a wonderful project - she must be a really good friend to spend so many hours embossing and cutting out those butterflies. I'm sure she loved it!
