The prompt over at The Creative Type for the month of November is "The best advice I have ever received...". When I saw this, one important conversation came to mind. I was talking about my upcoming weekend with a client of mine and I was bashfully telling her how I was going to be scrapbooking. I was embarrassed talking about scrapbooking, like always.
She said, "Life's too short."
She's right. Life is too short to constantly be embarrassed or afraid about who you are. Some of my hang ups with scrapbooking come from me thinking that people don't know what it is exactly, that they don't know it's this creative and inventive art. However, it doesn't matter what others think it is or isn't, what matters is that I love it.
