Lol, yes...I'm all about imperfection! I think it's so easy to appear perfect online, even if you don't intend to. I don't ever want people to leave my blog feeling crappy, like they can't live up to me, my house, my projects or whatever. Me, my house, and my projects are all a mess and I want people to know it. I want my blog to truly be a "if I can do this so can you" type of place. I want people to smile, to laugh, and to feel encouraged...even if they are encouraged because my house is messy, my kids are half naked, or my project was a disaster!
Oh man- this is a hard one. As a designer with a background mostly in the commercial industry this was a difficult thing to embrace. More-so since I'm also a perfectionist (you outta try perfecting imperfection)!
There is definitely a fine line between too-well-done-to-look-homemade and too-sloppy-to-be-seen-by-anyone-but-you. While imperfection is usually found more often in casual spaces such as the home, I find it welcoming in a business or home setting. Makes people feel more at ease if their surroundings aren't pressuring them to be perfect.
I'm a perfectionist, and while I see poor aspect of this trait, there are good too. It drives me to try harder, think smarter, and challenges me to go beyond "just good enough." I like that about myself. I love to plan. I spend a lot of time thinking about how to do a project before finally executing it.
But what I don't like is how I set the bar so high, that I cannot produce until a project has "arrived" in my own eyes. I really hold myself back in that department because I could be sharing so many things that don't get posted for lack of time to perfect them. boo! I would love to be okay with myself when it comes to stuff like that, but my own standards won't let me!
