It always amazes me rummaging through my old pictures I've taken of my greeting cards just to re-discover cards I forgot I made.
What's more amazing is that, to the risk of coming across as conceited, I'm surprised by my own creativity and sometimes have to stare at the cards to figure out how I made them.
I'm also glad I started the habit of taking pictures of my own handmade cards for two reasons: as a safekeeping to jog my creative memory and to see how far I've come with my techniques and idea. We all evolve into a certain style and it's fun to see how I've changed over the years (since 2006 ...yikes !).
I also remember how I started this blog and the fun I had (still have) in creating something sharing it so that hopefully it would inspire someone who has just started paper crafting or has lost the proverbial creative mojo.
I would suggest you do the same and go through your past creativity so you can say to yourself : " Well Done " ! It helps greatly on those days you feel totally blah and even feel like you want to pack it in.
I've added to this post a selection of cards I made but forgot I did. They go as far back as 2009 when I started live video streaming online sharing and making cards like if I were at a crop. Fun times which I'm cherishing still.
Also I want to add to finish this post that you shouldn't feel guilty in posting when you can, I leave my blogs free to 'roam' around the internet's pasture knowing that all my posts are not limited by time or space and that they're still valid despite being 'old'; so in a nutshell there's no rule and it's not a competition just post when you can and want, it's your blog after all.
