Flaws are Original

I try to remind myself whenever I’m making something, whether it is a quilt, a house ornament, or a drawing, or painting, that the mistakes and the flaws are what make it unique and make it my own. No one came make my flaws exactly the same way I did.

Take this picture of a flag for example. My mom took it and when she looked at it she didn’t like the fact that the flash from the camera was reflected on the glass, and was going to delete it off her camera, but I told her not to, because I wanted to keep it. The flash makes it look like there’s a star on the woman’s vest, and I think it’s really cool. No one else will ever be able to duplicate that exactly, and that’s what makes it special.
