Introducing | Finding My Creative Feet

After many months of debating with myself about the future of this blog and all my creative platforms- is finally here!

I felt like I had out grown Kateskraft many moons ago but my eternal stress of indecision made it very hard to finalise where to go next! Teamed with my constant strive for perfection, this made changing my platforms and redesigning my blog, Etsy and all the rest quite a lengthy process.

I know one of my biggest personal challenges is trying not to care what people will think and focus more on what I want to do and what my content and work can offer. I'm also battling my need for perfection, I'm sure I'm not the only one who can talk themselves out of anything because what you've made isn't good enough. But this will be a big learning curve for me; banners and logos can be changed, paintings will improve through practise and so our imperfections are not worth losing sleep over. My boyfriend tells me all the time, "you've just got to put yourself out there!" ... So I am! I put a huge amount of work into my tutorials as well as everything I make for my Etsy shop so it's about time I start being a bit proud of it!

Changing things up has really inspired me.  I've got so many new ideas for tutorials as well as topics that I want to talk about and maybe most importantly, a new direction for my work to sell on my Etsy shop. I can't wait to be in the rhythm of making and creating again, I hope to be back to doing craft fairs as well as selling online and be able to share the things I've learnt along the way.

It has felt like starting again, which at first felt very daunting but I know 100% it's the right thing. I'm excited! (woohoo!) I already have more bullet journal updates and discussions and new tutorials ready to go.

I'm feeling pretty positive! Have you ever undertaken a creative change or challenge that has made you anxious? Did it pay off in the end?! Let me know!
