I've found the best way for me to get over this is by donating items to other blogs, and charities and let them speak for me. It is also a clever way to get rid of inventory that just for whatever reason isn't moving.
Such as this Shawl. Nothing wrong with it very simply design made from cotton/linen blend on my knitting machine. It had hearts on etsy but alas I have been sitting on it for over a year now.
At least someone loved it enough to give it a home and plug about me on their Blog!
