Sept 1st Layout - Trust What You Think

Today was the day for the first of the layouts in Shimelle's Learn Something New Everyday class.

So, what did I "learn" today? Well, today I realised (although possibly not for the first time) that I tend to overthink and second guess myself when I start classes like this, or when I try to record my thoughts in other ways (like blogging or in my failed attempts at journal keeping). I don't know why I do this, or maybe I do know. Maybe it's because I worry too much about what other people will think of what I do, which is entirely the wrong thing to be thinking when it comes to stuff like this. Today's lesson for me then is that I need to stop second guessing myself, that there is no right or wrong when it comes to recording my own thoughts. I need to trust what I think and not worry about what other people will think. Here's my layout:


I'm still slightly reeling from the fact that I actually managed to do something crafty today. It's been a while (I don't really think the name labels count - do you?). Hopefully my scrapping mojo will remain present for the rest of the month! Fingers crossed, eh?

You need to stop worrying about getting other people's approval. Having said that, I love that layout. Buttons are my favourite thing - like - ever *hair twirling*

Loving the 'contemplating' Marie pose! I do exactly the same thing as you, worry all the time what other people think. It is silly, after all we wouldn't love you so much if you were crap would we?! ;)

Love the LO, I love blue and red! Was the cotton used to sew on the buttons left over from the label sewing?! :P

I am a complete worry wort. I have some quilting classes coming up and I am petrified everyone will hate me or think I am crapper than crap.
