Creative perfectionism. Do you struggle with it? According to Hayao Miyazaki, creativity comes from perseverance. "I never feel like watching my own films again. So unless I start working on a new one, I'll never be free from the curse of the last one." 

I have been mulling over how perfectionism challenges me and how it holds me back. It challenges me to do my best, but it also drives me crazy. For example: our bathroom remodel. I have not posted many photos because A: it is not finished. B: natural light is non existent in that room. C: I doubt its Pinterest pin worthiness.

This week I am challenging myself to share more on this blog. I completed an adorable (in my humble opinion!) children's table that I plan to share. Our new home's style is still very much unfinished and I sometimes find it difficult to show home design projects. But I am pushing that aside and moving forward.

Do you struggle with creative perfectionism? How do you overcome it?
