I've been getting crafty with our family Halloween costumes for years. Sometimes we just reuse what's already in our costume box, and other years we whip up new ones. I'm banding together with an awesome group of bloggers to bring you 100 DIY Costume ideas to help you get crafty this Halloween, too. First, I thought I'd give you a glimpse into the Maker Mama Halloween photo archives. Check out some of our crafty costumes over the years.
I used to be afraid of opening my umbrella at the wrong time. I don't mean like inside because it's bad luck wrong time, but during that in-between stage when it starts to drizzle but isn't fully raining yet. I'd carry my umbrella with me, waiting to see when other people would open theirs and then I would finally open mine. I know this sounds bizarre, but it's a quirk in my character that I've learned to conquer.
And I think this insecurity in truly being ourselves and doing what we want comes in many forms as creatives. It's easy to worry that what we want to do won't be good enough so we set ourselves up to fail before we even start. To let ourselves live the fullness of our creative capabilities, we have to let go of the fear of being different or wrong or flat out failing. So this week, I challenge you to step out beyond a fear of yours and do something you've always wanted to do in your creative work.
Here are my Monday Maker Motivator recommendations to get you started!
