i had the idea for this piece in my head for weeks, or maybe even months! it’s kind of silly, because i didn’t really have faith in myself. i thought, ‘i’ll make it, but it’ll suck, no one will like it, it will be horrible in every way possible.’ i was so wrong! i finished this before my last craft market (july 23) and it was the first piece that sold! and even before it sold, every person who stopped at my table touched it or remarked on it. inner critic, you have proven once more that you are completely unreliable! why do i even listen to you anymore? WELL, let this be a lesson to the art-self.
