The Dude is famous!

That might be exaggerating.  A bit.  But it was fun when we went by his school's office the other day and saw this advertisement for an upcoming event:

Which is so cool!  This was our Chalk it Up square from last year!  We did this the weekend after we moved to this school.  I hope we didn't cheat.  I drew the outlines and then he chose the colors and colored in.  I liked it then.  I'm glad someone else liked it too.

Thank you, Elder Uchtdorf

Confession: I don't like to do things unless I do them amazingly well. Which means that sometimes I don't do things that I'm "good" at because I'm not amazing. But tonight, while I read Elder Uchtdorf's talk on being creative, these lines jumped out at me:

"What you create doesn't have to be perfect. So what if the eggs are greasy or the toast is burned? Don't let fear of failure discourage you. Don't let the voice of critics paralyze you - whether that voice comes from the outside or the inside."

So, in honor of that passage (and because the Spozo was off firesiding with Elder Jensen tonight) I did this:

And I feel good.
