Vintage Truck in Mason Jar Snow Globe – Mason Jar Snow Globe Ideas.
Sometimes when I’m feeling a little blue … like after days and days of cold and rainy weather … I like to go to my Etsy shop to read customer reviews.
They (almost) always cheer me up. Well, the five star reviews do. Which there are many. Which makes me happy. But the four stars? Well, those make me a bit sad.
You see, I’m a pleaser. And an over achiever. And I realize four stars are great ….
Fabulous. Wonderful. Worthy of a standing ovation.
And I realize that some people can never, ever give five stars. They feel there is no such thing as perfection and there is always room for improvement. I blame Nadia Comaneci’s perfect 10’s at the 1976 Montreal Olympics opening up the discussion about if there really is a perfect 10.
I get it. Kinda.
And I realize in some reviewer’s minds the missing one star is somehow suppose to motivate me to do better. Give more. Reach for perfection …
But it still hurts. Just a little.
And, depending on my mood and psyche, this seeking out of approval backfires.
Perhaps it should. Because this exercise of ego-stroking is not really a good look on me.
But at least a four star review is always better than 3 stars. And 2 …
And speaking of my Etsy shop, it’s time for some self-promotion to go along with this self-congratulations post. This year’s car and trucks in jars are up for sale. But, being the magnanimous person I am, I’ll share a little tutorial on how I made them here as well …
