I’ve had a bit of an ‘a-ha’ moment recently. I’ve spent a lot of time beating myself up for certain character traits. For instance, this time last year I was obsessed with this little drop-shadow letter banner pattern and had stayed up late drawing up graphs for half the letters in the alphabet and crocheting them like crazy. Then we moved house, I got distracted with newer and more exciting projects (the new ones are always more exciting) and I haven’t touched it since.
But the fact that I’m always eager to move on to new projects, in search of the next big thrill, and perhaps a little bit impatient, actually serves me really well in my job, where I have to dream up 10 new projects to fill the pages of Mollie Makes, every month! So here’s to embracing them as character traits rather than flaws 🥂 Has anyone else found a way to work with rather than against their instincts?! And who knows, maybe I will come back to the banners one rainy afternoon! ☺️🌧💕
