I’m so excited! I love free printables but I’ve never made one.
Mostly because I’m technical challenged and never thought I actually could.
Ta-Da! Look what I made.

I’m sure I didn’t make it the easiest way and I’m sure some of you will think I make things way to difficult.
But it’s finished and I’m happy with it and I feel like I really accomplished something.
And I’m sharing it with you too, if I can figure out how to do that part.

I needed a gift for someone and wanted to try something different, so I thought it would be fun to mess around with PicMonkey a little.
I love this quote by President Dieter F. Uchtdorf.
I can be a perfectionist at times and it helps me realize that everything doesn’t have to be perfect as long as I’m creating and enjoying what I’m doing.
Too many of us put pressure on ourselves to be perfect, sometimes we just need to enjoy the journey and create.

I purposefully didn’t center the quote so there would be room at the top for some type of embellishment.
I just hot glued the flower to the front of the glass. I think a banner or butterflies would be cute too.

To use this printable.
Just click on it, then right click and save.
It was made as a 8″ x 10″, but once it’s saved you can adjust the size if you’d like.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it, imperfections and all.

Leanne, this is great! I suffer from this perfectionism problem. My recent mantra has become, “Done is better than perfect”, but I like this so much better. Thank you for sharing this with us.

Thanks for the freebie. Love the colors and the quote….I am a perfectionist. Will be great for my studio….I am your newest follower.

What a great printable and a very important reminder of something I often forget. I have a sign above my craft room door that says “Finished is better than perfect” and this will be a great companion for it!
