Stop Comparing! {Start Enjoying} & Learn to Draw Banners!

Hi friends! I was scrolling through my Pinterest feed the other day (a rare treat these days as I have been so busy) and I saw this quote: I will not compare myself to strangers on the internet. It really struck a chord. We all do it though, don’t we? We compare ourselves to other parents. We compare ourselves to acquaintances and yes, even strangers on the internet. People with cleaner, nicer houses that know how to cook…people who know how to cook, not cooking houses…hey, I totally want a house than can cook now! If you have one of those I am comparing myself to you and you are totally winning. Just kidding. We need to stop the insanity. It is not fair to us. When I posted this on YouTube the other day a viewer Glen shared advice his dad used to remind him: “You know, everyone’s doing about the best they can.”  With that here is today’s tutorial. I sped up the process of this video because it was all lettering and seemed a bit dull to watch for the 30 minutes it took to create.

Remember how I messed up the banner? Well, it inspired me to make a quick and easy tutorial on how to draw banners! Use this on scrapbooks, art journal pages and cards for instant fancy flair!

Well, 2 for the price of one, I love it and I hope you found something useful here today, even if it is just a bit of encouragement. Let’s be kind to each other and ourselves OK:) Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
