Gift Tag Swap
This swapping business has me in its evil hold. I've just signed up to do a gift tag swap at Head full of pixies. What possessed me? Don't get me wrong - I love the whole idea of swaps and I'm totally dedicated to making stuff that would make me smile to receive. But the CRIPPLING performance anxiety. I look at the blogs of my swapmates and cringe at their competence and creativity. How will I ever make things to please them? I'm a FRAUD you hear, a crafting charlatan - no art school, no graphic design on my CV, no mother who sewed every childhood garment.
I had this dream that my blog was swap blacklisted (in a handmade ledger, of course, beautifully embellished). That when my e-mail came, swap organizers would cackle. PARANOIA.
