Are you a Perfectionist!?

Good Morning! I'm doing my daily going through my emails and other things and I couldn't help but throw this up to "y'all". I saw this "perfection" questionnaire on a wonderful blog, Stampin' When I Can-I don't think Allison ever sleeps! I'm happy to report that I'm only 59% Perfectionist, as you can see below. Allison is 69%. The morale of the story is sometimes it's okay to say, "it is what it is" (right, Tim!?).
Embrace imperfection when you can. I always think about the needlepoint I made for my mom, that's in her kitchen still, of seashells. As many times as I looked to make sure I didn't miss any stitches, it turns out that when I got it framed, there were a few. When we would go to my parent's house, my ex would point out the missing stitches...Um, can you guess? There's a good example of why he's an "ex"! But, in the end, I know no one would see those missing stitches unless I took a magnifying glass and pointed it out!

There is a kind of beauty in imperfection.

You Are 59% Perfectionist

No one would call you a perfectionist, but you definitely have a side of you that strives to be perfect.
Try to see your mistakes as learning experiences, and don't be so hard on yourself when you screw up!

As if this is surprising, I am 39% perfectionist. I have no problem making mistakes...but...I demand quality, brilliance and innovation from myself.

Or sometimes I just say...f**k it!

I love the frames, they're always so different and so fascinating. I need GRUNGEBOARD and CRACKLE PAINT...BAD.

I'm so needy...

64%?! I've never gotten a 64%! Oh, I guess that's why I got a 64%.
See ya in Dec.

I got 35%! It says: Occasionally you have perfectionist tendencies, but overall you're pretty normal.
You're sometimes hard on yourself, but you usually focus on what you're doing right!
