Energy in Sync

Recently over at Pixel Scrapper, Marisa did a segment on critical feedback.  Great info!  I thought I would talk about it here today.  First off, no one likes criticism.  It hurts the very soul of us and is not productive.  When talking about Scrapbooking, we are talking about creativity.  Creativity comes from within and is given by the Great Creator, Himself.  How different this world might be if someone was standing by God and giving what they thought was critical feedback. lol  God Himself said, at the end of the first day, ' And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.' (Gen 1:2a).  Doesn't sound very pretty, yet, look what He created.  PTL

So, what I am getting at is that, when it comes to art, tread lightly on others creativity; we can not see what the designer sees for the end product.  There is an old saying that goes, 'you will attract more bees with honey than vinegar'. lol  It's the same with advice.  Advice, when asked for can go like this...  Positive statement first - I like this about it... Constructive statement next - The colors would match a little better if... and end with another Positive statement - I think your flowers are lovely.  Get the gist? 

When I submit something to Lori for review, I expect honest, constructive critiques.  She always comes through, and my artistic abilities are growing.  She instills the desire to succeed in me through her encouragement and care.  Cami and I have been crafting partners for years, and I believe our best 'Stuff' happens when we collaborate.  I don't have to get my way, she doesn't have to get her way.  I think the word for this kind of creativity together is Synergy: energy in Sync.

So, on that note, let me tell you that we love to get comments on the blog and site.  Your creative suggestions are welcome and we hope we can all get that Synergy and Mojo going together.
