So there’s this really awesome designer (and photographer) who is working on a background and header (and maybe some other fun stuff) for my blog. Well, she will be if I can give her some direction. Usually I am a super creative person, but I’m stuck today. The problem is that OCD is keeping me from being creative with thoughts like This is a one-time thing. If it’s not perfect, then I have to live with it. So I better figure out EXACTLY what I want and tell her coherently because if she doesn’t understand me then I will regret it. I better come up with something good, something perfect. I know OCD won’t leave me alone if I don’t try my hardest and do it perfectly. What if I don’t give her enough to go on? What if I give her too much? What if I confuse her? What if my blog just sucks and doesn’t deserve a design? What if it doesn’t fit? What if… UGH! Once again, OCD is driving me crazy and blocking my mind from doing anything productive and I can’t seem to turn it off.
SO here is where you come in, dear readers (especially those of you who have been reading for awhile and have a feel for things around here). I need your help! If you were in charge of the design, what would you do? When you read my posts, what images/colors/feelings are in your head? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!
