|These stunning earrings from Arco Iris make a subtle|
change in the standard feather earring design that
makes such a huge impact
More recently I have begun to realise that other people see some of my ideas in the same light. Designs that seem so obvious to me, or even ones that I don't think are all that special, sometimes elicit that 'wow' response in others.
I have concluded that creative people often see their own ideas as obvious or mundane when an equally creative person would view them as genius. As a result it is very easy to undervalue your own ideas and creativity and forget how unique they really are. Particularly if you craft as a hobby and thus don't get a lot of feedback on your creations and if the feedback you get is always friends and family you will never be sure how honest they are being.

earrings from Sonya Rasi completely unique
Remember this next time you question your creative skills and take the time to recall positive feedback you have been given in the past. And if you see something that you think is truly amazing, take the time to tell the person who made or designed it - it might just make their week!
