Every month I have two deadlines. An Artistic Trading Card group has a specific deadline each month and a Postcard Trading group has a “sometime during the month” deadline.
Every month as I face these two deadlines I fight with myself over the argument as to whether my work is considered “art” or “craft” – art being more desirable/uppity and craft being more………..well, lowly. Now where did I get that attitude and why can’t I make it go away?
Here is a link to the ATC’s from last month. Can you pick out my crafty one as opposed to the other artistic ones? Probably not.
And here is a picture of the postcards from last month….
Which one is mine???? All three could have been done by me as I am always trying to measure up or going on a diet, but the May Binding is mine because I had a stack of quilts to bind in May and those are pieces of leftover bindings .
So am I an artist or a crafter? I think I will compromise and be a crafty artist.
Time to go work on my deadlines for June.
