LO: Work with the best.

by - 10/27/2014 12:31:00 PM

Hello! Challenge YOUrself challenged to make a layout about an affirmation that you would like to attract into your life, and of course include you (me!) in the picture.
Well, I thought about affirmations. For me it's so much easier to say and think things in Finnish, so I changed the rules of this challenge a little for myself. I started to think what could be my motto and how can I encourage myself in tough situations. That's almost the same than the original challenge.
Now the tough situations I had in my mind was obviously some conflict with hubby (yes, we are a married couple and we fight every now and then - or at least I fight every now and then and my hubby nods his head...), but I even more I thought tough situations at work. What do I think if I have hard case or a challenge to do things I've never done before? I work with the best - ask some help from all my colleagues who has done it before, who knows better than me. As simple as that, and the best way to learn.
This same method works perfectly in paper crafts too. That's why I took a picture of me and super-duper-lovely-talented-amazing-beautiful-master-Riikka, aka. Paperiliitin! She is one of the best scrappers and mixed media artists in Finland, in Europe, in the whole world, too.
I really, really enjoy working next to her. All the inspiration and ideas are in the air when ever she is near - I really don't have to ask anything or say anything when she is around. That's why I love to work with the best.
And for my other co-crafters, especially Veera and Taru - you are not any less, but as we all know Riikka's talent and inspiration is very unique and she can almost make our papers to fly, right?
*hugs to you girls*
