I used to think I was a perfectionist. I don't believe that anymore. Case in point, for my children's first birthdays, I made each of them a quiet book. My son will be one in a week and a half. I am going to sew up all his pages this week so his can be done in time. I finished the final detail today. I admit to trolling pinterest to find ideas and inspiration in several areas of my life. And these quiet books are greatly inspired from there. I can't just do something simple, of course. I have to find a page I like and then make it my own ... maybe even better? So, for this page that shows a traffic light where he can button the colored circles in their correct order, I wanted more. Hence the stop sign and "Go." And so I sat and embroidered the word "stop" on the red octogon this afternoon because it needed something else. The page isn't perfect. The "Go" is pretty sloppy. But it has the details I wanted, so this is the way it stays. It's all about the details.
Maybe someday I will post pictures of all the pages I have done. :-)
This is a place for me to share thoughts and ideas not just related to writing. Thoughts about what's going on in my life, about an idea I got that I thought shareworthy, or just a funny anecdote.
