 Halloween is not really celebrated where I live, even though shops have been trying hard for years to add the event to commercial tradition :)

But I have some Halloween inspired cards made but not shown so here goes: The pumpkin witch from Rick St Dennis is so adorable, I wish I could use it more often.

Autumn cards

 I have a couple of autumn inspired cards today and the top one is a favourite cause it really puts a finger on where I am today. Letting things go can be frustrating, hard, scary and sad but when you do you might find that it is very liberating. 

Like being on crafting design teams. I've been on plenty, both long-term and short, and it was scary to let go; would I be able to continue to craft? Why would I without the audience? Would I lose inspiration or interest? Was I even good enough to continue on my own?

But here's the thing ladies - it's wonderful! I do what I want because it feels right at that particular moment. No pressure about colours or stamp brands, no deadlines, no wondering about whether I've been active enough, creative enough, talkative enough. Just me and my craft supplies, a bit of music in the background and a feeling of calm and joy. 

I don't need the confirmation, I don't need comments or cheering, I do this on my own terms. Crafting communities can be very supportive but also a bit overwhelming and it can be difficult finding the balance. I have and I'm not looking back. Comment if you like, or don't. It's your time, use it wisely cause it's not coming back. :)
