Aah. I am pleased with some of my carvings, and I feel like a novice with others. I have no confidence carving people, and I feel like I cannot find a gouge narrow enough for some details.

Honestly, I feel intimidated sometimes, but it's something in me.
Words of encouragement. ... your art should make you happy. Find your joy not in comparison to others, but something you created that means something to you. I bet they are great!
This is the most helpful, encouraging group of people. Everyone is so supportive & shares tips & techniques.

Oh ok. I don't know if anyone is really ever satisfied with a their details. It seems it's a natural tendency to push ourselves at times to carve more detail than some of our previous stamps. But at least you are pleased with some of your stamps. Otherwise it would be discouraging!!

Well if that's what you think(which is totally not a true interpretation)...then I will tell you that I like kindergarten artwork and would love to see it in my queens swap.

I know I'm late to this party but I just wanted to say that often times I feel the same as you. I join LTC trackers because I enjoy the time I spend on them even when they look like juvenile art compared to others. I've learned not to compare myself to the LTC masters and just do what brings me joy.

No. You are weak. You have no self control.

Jiffy, thank you for taking the last spot! I was on the fence about doing it. But I wasn't sure if I could fit it in time.
