Starting Over

It's hard to believe it's April already! This year seems to be slipping by super fast!  Thankfully, I've had lots of work this year, I hope that trend continues!

Yesterday I spent the first half of the day finishing a project for a catalog. By the time I got to the end I realized it was just too short for my liking and the border wasn't bold enough.  I spent the second half of my day ripping it out and starting over.  I really dislike days like that. You think the finish line is in sight only to have the rug pulled out from under you in the end. 

Sometimes the best thing you can do is start over. I am a perfectionist.  If there is a mistake I can't just keep going. It ruins the project and I will always know it's there.

The good news is, that's what it takes to be a professional. You have to look at your work critically, always striving for what can be better, and be willing to make those changes. In the end it's your name on the project - doesn't that make it all worth it?
