Every now and again .....

...... I get a message that either gives me a slap on the chops or a swift kick up the butt!
This is a butt kick!

All of us are gifted; some just open our packages earlier than others.

Countless times I have looked at others and their art and I’ve thought to myself, ‘these people are so talented, so creative, so gifted!’ I feel so inadequate and cannot possibly complete. The excuses are endless - I don’t have the fancy punches, I don’t have the latest designer papers, I don’t have the latest stamps., I cannot afford the gorgeous images for sale. But what I do have now is the belief in myself (after being seriously butted) Oh yes, and I do have a sense of humour!!!
Just as I enjoy other people’s art and don’t relate to others, so people out there will enjoy mine or not.

So, I leave you with this ..

What if you DID have the POWER, the REACH and the GLORY? What if you were given DOMINION OVER ALL THINGS?And what if ETERNITY lay before you, brimming with love, friends and laughter? Yet still, one day, in all your radiance, bubbling over with giddy excitement... you tripped, fell, and got hurt... REALLY HURT.

Would you hate yourself?

Would you give up on your dreams?

Would you forget the magic?

Huge Hugs and Loads of Love

Now you have just given me a kick up the butt,
thank you for that.

let me tell you ART is a small word however it is huge in it's self and all ART is ART however we dont all like the work of the famous artists of this world... I would so much rather have a tiny piece of your ART than a Constable.
have a lovely day.

Goodness, girl, I thought I had left a comment about this particular post and see that it has entered Cybertory...
Thanks for these comments. I admit it, I have some chops but I still do the routine, too. "So and so is talented. So and so... I will never be like... " etc etc.

This was a good reminder that guess what, They will never be like you EITHER. Lol!
