Are You on trend?

Are you on trend?

LOL! Today while I was in Micheals looking at flowers this random woman came up to me and asked me if I was on trend. All I could do was laugh and ask WHAT! What does that even mean? Since when does expressing yourself artistically have anything to do with trends. Why are people so preoccupied with what’s in and what’s out. When I make a card or a altered project I just do what feels good to me. I don’t care about the latest Washi tape, however if I have some and I think it looks good with what I’m doing then sure I‘ll use it. But not because it’s all the rage but because at that moment it appeals to me. Think about it. When you sit down to craft, do you do it for you or someone else. Granted if you are creating a special request  for someone that’s different.( maybe) but if you are crafting for self gratification then why does it matter what trends you use? I still love Prima and flowers while it appears as though the rest paper crafting world does not. You will find a flower or two on just about everything I do, because I like them.  So to answer her question are you on trend. NO, and I probable never will be because I do me and no none else.

  1. Preach it! I don't change my style because the trends change. I am still me no matter what is "in". And I too love flowers and primas and I personally HATE washi tape.
