I can totally relate! I was so afraid to enter swaps when I first began doing them. I was afraid that my work wasn't good enough. Remember one thing - WE ARE OUR OWN WORST CRITICS!!! Once I began swapping, I have from time to time received things back where I would think "what were they thinking?" or "wow, mine's not so bad after all!" I don't mean that to be mean, and I would never say it to anyone, it's something you keep to yourself. When looking through my swaps, each person in my family has favorites - sometimes one of my kids or husband will pick the one that is my least favorite. We all have our own ideas and preferences - colors, styles, embellishments, etc. If you're not confident - what better way to learn to be better, than by swapping with other very talented stampers and receiving ideas!!! Also, the positive feedback that you do get from others really boosts your confidence level!
