Is this in the DSMV-IV?

Okay, I have a confession to make. I have a swapping inferiority complex. Yes, it's true. I get so excited about my swapping ideas. Then, I get bogged down in my execution of the projects. And then, I start seeing the SUPER-CREATIVE things that other people are doing. And THEN...the anxiety hits.

What if my partner poo-poos my poor painting job?

What if she notices the little tears and rolling that resulted in my battle with adhesives?

What if she opens her package and just groans in disappointment?!


I just got a sneak peak at what my Bit and Pieces' partner made me. See it here.

Now, my feelings of swap inadequacy are popping up. Well, at least I know I put a lot of thought and effort into my projects.

I plan on finishing up my crown and bits 'n' pieces projects tonight. Wish me luck and send me LOTS of creative vibes.

I was getting worried about the flickr pictures too, but I want your tiara to be special and I'm not going to worry about it too much! So don't worry about me, I'm going to love it NO MATTER WHAT!!!

Ok One more comment :)

This should be a PS.
Swapping is all about doing YOUR thing, not MY thing or ANYONE else's thing :)

I want to see what Amy makes me :) But don't post a picture yet, I want to see it in it's packaging.

Jus---You're sweet. I promise I won't post anything until it is finished! Thanks for the encouragement!

Well, I am worried since you seem to have the swap thing down pat, and I'm just beginning. :)

Malady said...

I don't know about that, Sarah! But I think Jus is right. Make it your own thing and it will be great!

I have the same problem. The last 2 swaps I participated in were amazing.
