2 Peas Sunday Blogger Challenge

Feel free to join us if you blog.

Today's challenge~
What is the type of thing you find the hardest to you on your layouts?
And why do you have a hard time using it?

In all honesty the absolute hardest part of scrapbooking for me is getting started. So often I want to scrapbook but I can not just bring myself to get started. I don't know why that part is so hard for me. Once I begin I love it, often once I begin I can't get stopped. I am almost always happy with the end results. Sometimes I think it is just a mental block in my head that keeps me from starting, that horrible part of me that inside thinks I am not good enough so I don't do it in case it is not good enough. I hate that part of me. I hate that doubt that I am not good at creating. That my art is not good enough. Maybe I need to do a new challenge and challenge myself to start doing some kind of art every day. When I did the 21 day art journal challenge last year I was at my all-time high as far as creating. I created daily and loved challenging myself to create new things and try to expand on my creativity everyday. I need a new challenge and I need to get started creating daily again.

I feel the same way. It just seems to take me forever to get started. Once I get started on a lo, I go with it and usually love the end result. I just feel like it takes me a year and day to figure out what I want to do.

I am the same way, I have the hardest time getting started. Then if it goes too long, I start thinking why even bother. Frustrating!
