This post is not about any craft project. Its just a personal mail where i want to share my feelings with you all. I had an interest in craft from my childhood and never found time to do anything like this as am doing now. Thanks to smita who kindly shared her quilling art. I learnt my first class in june and i roughly remember the month as july when i first entered some challenge. And in these five months i had experienced so many things,inspired from many and learnt few things which i can just ignore but i couldnot. Its not fair if i write anything like this anywhere, because its my blog i can share my opinions about something.
After participating in the challenges in these 5months ,i want to share something i observed. I am specifically talking about only Indian challenges. I participated in every challenge without missing, am just not saying this because i didn't win anything. There are many talented crafters out there, i really admire their work. They are all the people who also started the same way as any new crafter and established themselves,once participated in the Indian challenges and now became DTs. What i don't understand is DTs of one Indian challenge participate in other Indian challenge and tell me whose work will be more good and attractive, the one with 3yrs of experience in crafting world or a months experience crafter. And obviously they are the people who get recognised more, that is not bad thing but just imagine. I am definitely sure that somebody somewhere will feel the same way as i felt being a new crafter. And they have so many wonderful tools needed to make a nice card, i dont say that people who have should give chance to others. You can definitely participate in other than Indian challenges. I know that iam not the one to give rules ,but this might give you an idea that some people may think like this too. This is not about all the DTs but only few who participate in other Indian challenge blogs and obviously their work wins,there is no surprise in that. This is not about the people who have tools,who have experience,but mainly who participate being DT of other Indian blogs. And everyone who participate will not casually do something without keeping challenge in mind and there will be lot of work gone into it.
This is the thing i felt after seeing many challenges not a one day feeling.I think after feeling bad for myself for quite sometime i thought its time for me to do something for myself not just for challenges. And i cannot even craft for few days as i burnt my fingers while stopping the flames. I am still writing with those fingers to just let you know about how a new crafter feels.Thanks to everyone who comments on my work and it really encourages me. I will definitely share my projects with you all.
thanks for reading
