I think I figured out why sometimes I'm happy with my creative results and sometimes I'm not.
I'm happy with them when I don't have a plan. When I just start doodling, like yesterday, or decide I want to do something with buttons, like today, then I'm happy with what I get.
But when I have an idea of what it should look like, like the chicken or the wreath, I'm more likely to be disappointed.
It has everything to do with expectations. I shouldn't be surprised. Expectations cause of a lot of disappointment in my life. I'm learning (slowly) how to let go of them. Toss them. Give them up and just take what comes. Life is so much more beautiful and satisfying that way.
