Friends! I have a question for you….
Why do you create? Why do you refinish furniture, sew, paint etc the way you do? Do you do it for yourself? Do you do it so when other people walk in your house they are ASTOUNDED by your mad skills? Do you do it to make your husband mad?
I was talking to my favorite person in thew world who shall remain anonymous (to protect the guilty) and she was feeling bad because some people she really likes (her friends) were not that nice about her MAD decorating skills. (Which by the by are just like mine; so of course they are awesome) It made her feel super bad because she didn’t walk into a store and buy everything, she worked really hard creating it. So it got me thinking. Why is it so important for us to have other people approve; even people we don’t necessarily like?
Now children sit down and I will tell you a story.
Once upon a time there was a BEAUTIFUL queen named Mandi. She had just discovered a new love called Yellow Spray Paint. When the king came home from golfing he asked what the crap she was doing. The beautiful queen told him to suck it and now their palace is the talk of the land (or at least the ward.)
The moral of the story is: If I had stopped with literally the first piece of furniture that I tried to beautify because my hubs didnt understand “The Vision” then none of us would be here reading this right now.
So who of you face these nay sayers and what do you do about it?
