Creativity vs Fear

Barn Owl and Mouse Cupcake @ LiPeony

I was on the verge of not posting the little print above because I thought to myself owls have been so overdone and they're everywhere on etsy and also in stores. That changed when I read this article on etsy called Fearless Creativity... it really spoke to me. There are always so many ideas bouncing in my head but few make it on paper because of the reasons mentioned such as "this will never be as good as xxx" or "it's been done" etc. This can be applied in life as we're always besieged by fear and it creates this glass ceiling. Not letting this fear get you down is an ongoing struggle but I hope reading this little article would give you encouragement to combat those little voices in your head.

Until next time... don't let fear bind your creativity!
