Default What's worse than being a PERFECTIONIST?

What's worse than being a PERFECTIONIST?
Being a perfectionist with NO ARTISTIC TALENT!

Perfectionists are not perfect, not by a long shot. But we tend to judge ourselves harshly. Some of us (ME) are all or nothing type of people. We give a project our all or we just give up ... or sometimes never even start. (this is true for organizing a cupboard, cleaning the kitchen, or making a scrapbook.)

I've tried to crocheting, sewing, quilting, scrapbooking, photography and now stamping.

I WANT to create! I have a NEED to create! But I have NO TALENT! ARGH!!

So, the trick is going to be to do the best I can, to suck it up and accept that some projects will turn out okay and others will not, to remind myself that my family (who doesn't browse the Internet for papercrafts) enjoys what I make, and to ignore that little voice in my head that whispers, "People are laughing at your feeble attempts so why don't you just trash all your supplies and go to bed." (well, maybe not in so many words LOL)

Anyone else ever feel this way?
