Self Confidence and Self Esteem

Self-confidence and self-esteem are not the same thing, but very much go hand in hand.   Your self-esteem which is based on your beliefs about your own value as a person will affect how confident you feel about yourself.

 

I was inspired to write this post, by Angela Curtis a successful entrepreneur and Leader of a newly formed team ‘Ask Angela & Friends‘ on Etsy, who knows only too well what it is like to suffer from poor self-esteem.
She says “I was an obese, sad person for my entire adult life…until 3rd March 2011…..I had a minor health scare…and I changed my life”.   Angela added exercise to her life and changed her diet completely.  She enthuses “the minute I started caring more about myself, the self-esteem and confidence came to me”.

 

What helped Angela keep firmly on her path was ensuring she had a positive source of support throughout her year of changes. For example, her husband and Facebook friends.  As Angela lost weight, she  posted photos of herself on Facebook.  The positive reactions she received encouraged her to keep going. 

 Angela’s inspirational and loving guidance to you and I is  “whatever it is that is holding you back from having good self esteem… you can overcome it, you can do anything you put your mind to… I am an example of that and I hope to inspire all of you…. please take control of the feelings, put them in their place, and feel good about yourself…..because you are worth it”.  

 

Well!  I think I’m worth it and have recently joined a gym to help me shake of and tone up my menopausal weight gain/body changes.  I know that if I slack of or beat myself up about it, I can come back to this post and be encouraged and motivated by Angela’s words of wisdom!

Autumnal Awesomeness (My 1st Etsy Treasury)

Autumn (Fall) is my favourite season (along with Spring). “The season of the year between summer and winter, lasting from the autumnal equinox to the winter solstice and from September to December in the Northern Hemisphere”                       (source:http://www.thefreedictionary.com).

Items chosen here are representative of all I like about this season – through colour, texture and shape, as well as the smells and tastes invoked!

YanniCreations

Meet Yanni who  holds a deep appreciation for recycling .   Give her some trash and sure enough she will make something beautiful out of it!

Wear the Rainbow Recycled Long Paper Bead Necklace - YanniCreations

In her own words………

“Hi,  I am Yanni of YanniCreations.I am a free spirited recycling artist. I am engaged in all sorts of crafting but I hold a deep appreciation for recycling and creating with decoupage to be the most fulfilling. My love for upcycling and remaking started because I have an enormous collection of bits and pieces that I have stocked since childhood. I used to do collage, woodworks, beads and more traditional kinds of things. I did lots of recycling projects back in school and proud to say, my crafts had always gained the nods of viewers in exhibits. I really enjoyed those moments, and from that I started making things with any kind of debris I find. If I see any discarded and unloved materials along the way headed for a trash pile, I couldn’t help but pick them up knowing one day, I would create something beautiful out of those rubbish. When I eventually started making funky and unique jewelries, it was hard to stop. Currently, I have tons of maps, stamps, vintage books and lots of found objects that I try to incorporate in my pieces.

Atlas/Map Paper Beads for Your Craft Project - YanniCreations

With themes of green politics, conservationism and climate change becoming increasingly popular in the art arena, I commit in putting eco-friendly philosophies to practice, with jewelries, accessories and home decors made entirely or at least 90% of unwanted objects. Recycling and reusing stuff normally destined for the landfill has always been a creative process for me.

Lidded Decoupaged Map Wooden Bowl with Wood Spoon - YanniCreations

It is my personal goal and YanniCreations to help change people’s minds and hearts to reconsider what is garbage and realize that anything seemed worthless could still be salvaged. Ephemeras that are normally discarded can be transformed into eco-friendly accessories with just a bit of imagination, creativity and a sense of fun.

Under the Sea Map Decoupaged Wooden Cat - YanniCreations

Everything in my Etsy store is handmade .You’ll find a collection of hand made stuff and accessories that range from chic jewelries to delightfully decorative functional pieces. It is my commitment to offer original and inventive designs. Although the materials are common such as paper, I make sure my paper crafts are well-made and long lasting. I do not mass produce my creations and I see to it that each piece is unique and OOAK.

In parting, I want my creations to encourage recycling by showing that the life cycle of a thing doesn’t end when it’s no longer functional and that just about anything can be re-used, recycled, remade long after it has served its primary purpose!

Take a peek at some of my maps and paper beads and then look in your trash bin for inspiration!. Unleash your creativity”!
