I’m going to be honest with you. When I finish one of my creations, more times than not, I hate it. I’m suuuuuper critical about EVERYTHING that I make and I look it over and over with a fine toothed comb and then beat myself up about it the whole time I’m delivering it or waiting for it to be picked up until I can actually see the person’s face who it’s going to and they love it.
Actually I still panic that they were just being nice and they hated it too but that’s a different therapy session!
It’s not to say that I think I make ugly things (welll sometimes) or that I’m not proud of myself (ehhh) but it’s more of my hypercritical nature coupled with my hypersensitivity and my need for people to like what I do.
I’m telling you this because I recently made a cake for a friend that I actually liked when it was finished. I actually smiled! I may have jumped a lil for joy! THIS NEVER HAPPENS! Well sometimes, but rarely.
This was the picture she sent me for inspiration:
I’m sorry whoever made this cake. I don’t know where the picture is from so I can’t give you credit!
And here’s mine:
here it is in the fridge
just a friendly reminder : )
I love it! I still do! And my friend was thrilled so it made it even better!
