Imperfect little egg (with a side of chit chat)

I made this for my daughter. It's not perfect, but she doesn't care.

 

I was looking back and realized that a year ago today I posted my (almost) first little LEGO creation online. (I had a false start the previous fall.) It was imperfect too.

Since then I have gotten a lot of attention for things I've posted. It's been exciting, but also problematic. On the positive side, it helped me to feel smart even though I'm "just" staying home with the kids. But on the negative side I now fret much too much about things: I feel like everything ought to be good now -- perfect -- and that's not fun. I stress about it. I used to be like this in school and now I am like this in my supposed-to-be relaxing hobby. I don't really know what to do about it. Keep on keeping on, I guess...
