Memorandum Monday: Mother's and Mojo
I have heard other scrapbookers talk about having trouble jumping back into their art after taking a break. After a week in the Outerbanks, making a few cards was quite a struggle. It's like the muse was still basking on the beach. I did manage to assemble a Mother's Day present for my Mom last week and a quick card. I leaned quite heavily on the premade acetate circle and cool vintage graphic.
The present itself was not as hard. The silver bowl was upcycled from the Corning ReStore and filled with some lavendar hand soap, raspberry hand made soap, two pairs of homemade earrings, and some chocolate. Fun times!
Check out that pretty black shell I used on this card. That came back with us from the beach and I've enjoyed adding shells on pages I made this weekend. I actually made quite a few pages...that I'll be showing you soon. The mojo? That came back after a crafternoon at my friend Angel's house.
Isn't this yummy? It's just a sneak peek of a double page spread we made. I have a ton of photos from vacation, just need to pick which ones to use! So anyhow, if you are suffering from lack of creativity after taking a break and need to jump start your creativity? I highly suggest hanging with your friends, some wine, chocolate, and awesome paper. It will totally fix you right back up!
Enjoy your week and join me in a quick wave to Miss Sian over at From High in the Sky who never seems to suffer from a lack of mojo!
