I'm attractive enough that I get complimented for wearing anything so I'm lazy

Nope, I don't believe in talent or "naturally good at".

The things I was making the first 6 months really sucked and then quickly improved.
I always sight inwardly when people say I'm so talented and they wish they were. I always want to tell them it's just putting in the work.

i had the massive fall after entering a craftsmanship contest. thought I could just smurf along and then enter as a beginner and stomp all the other beginners, but EVERYONE had that exact same idea so I was humbled pretty badly. the winners clearly deserved the prizes desu, I'm not too mad about it

Judges can tell and will bump people up categories as needed. I had that idea, too, until I realized that I'll never outcompete people who spent 2 years hand-beading their ball gown
