I realized that it was about enjoying myself and not about impressing others or selling my work.

Yeah... and when I cleaned my work area regularly so I would stop accidentally  messing things up....

Honestly, that freed me up. Along with giving myself permission to toss the real duds in the wastebasket or give them away to children who didn't care if they were great or not.

That is what it's all about, isn't it!

I stopped using Sculpey III and started using Premo and Kato

I discovered sanding....(but we all knew that was going to be a familiar theme, didn't we? :) ) 

Very much along the same line as da Puffin's : when I stopped trying to recreate what other people were doing and started experimenting and moving in my own direction creatively. 

When I allowed myself to make ugly stuff

When I started learning about, instead of being intimidated by, artistic "basics" like color, shapes, line, etc..

When I allowed my natural goofiness and sense of humor to occasionally shine through (remember my googly eyed bat?)

I got tired of picking off little bits of former projects transfered to my clay from the brayer, pasta machine, blade, my fingers etc etc etc...
