I for one am on the edge of MY seat!

Kelly,

We call them galleries for a reason. Some of the ladies here are artists like Rembrant, Picasso, and Monet - the kind of stuff that belongs on the walls of a museum. I can appreciate that art for its sheer beauty, go home inspired, and create my OWN masterpieces using MY visions and MY skills.

I started scrapping in 2004. I, too, was a little discouraged when I compared my first projects to those of some of the artists in this community. I joined Swirlydoos kit club, which was really wonderful for me because it made some of those artists "real people." I'll be forever grateful to that particular design team for helping me refine skill and technique, but mostly I am grateful for their help in realizing that a technique is something I can LEARN, but art has to come from MY inner soul.

The sheer magnitude of skill, knowledge, and techniques that are available since the advent of the internet and especially this community (THANK YOU JILL!) is very overwhelming! But if you don't try to do it all at once - take ONE technique skill at a time, learn it well enough to put it in your go-to arsenal - it's a little less so. Continue to learn, ask questions, apply technique, and grow.

But MOST of all, stay true to YOUR creative inner self. Just because I CAN imitate the style of a master-artist, is no reason I SHOULD. I won't, can't, and no longer WANT, to be the artist that someone else is. I'm my OWN artist, and my scrapbooks reflect that journey.

I will try - I did all 12 when Jami did 12 days of Christmas a couple years ago, but I didn't even make it to day 6 of the 25 last year... 30 is SO out there, that I think, even an obsessive person like me can go in feeling relaxed in the idea of just doing SOME. That's what I'm telling myself anyway, but someone may have to come rescue me from a padded cell on October 1.

I loved this last year. I want to do as many as I can and I know it will be into October for me to finish them. I am going to try to get as many done as I can, but I am going to be away for 2 weeks and won't get much done. At least I'll have something in October to look forward too.

I'm totally w/you Lisa. I plan on trying to stay as calm as possible and focus on getting one LO done @ a time. Hopefully by keeping our perspectives down 2 earth we'll both steer clear of the padded rooms, lol!

Welcome back Suzi! Happy 2 have you playing along w/us this month. The key 2 keeping your sanity during this kind of a challenge is not to worry about what you miss when you're gone. Remember, the sketches will always be here 4 you to come back to whenever YOU are ready 4 them!
