So I challenged myself to do a Craft a Day in May.
And promptly fell a week behind.
Perfectionism says I should just give up, or work like crazy to "catch up."
But another voice says I should honor the spirit of the challenge and keep going. That same voice reminds me to celebrate the small things I create each day, instead of boxing myself in to some narrowly defined idea of what "creating" looks like.
So, in that spirit, I give you a my latest creation:
This is a triptych I'm framing for the Maternal Units for Mother's Day. I created it using StoryBook Creator Plus, and I'm printing it at Costco on a 12 x 18 print. I bought the frame I'm using at Walmart for $5, and I essentially copied the set we bought from LifeTouch when we had our portraits done. Total cost is about $8 each, and it took about 30-45 minutes to create it, including measuring the frame opening and color-correcting the photos to remove some of the redness in the kids' faces. I love these pictures and I think it will make a great gift!
