Just in case you are wondering why i've been a little scarce, I seemed to have lost my mojo! I thought that I had just set it up on the shelf for a few days, but when I went to use it, it was gone! Life has it's way of taking over and priorities can shift.
It's amazing that one day your head can be overflowing with creative ideas, the next, as barren as the desert! Overall, I just had taken a little break from my Craft Room and the Computer and had very little contact with my Stamping Chicka's!
Luckily as I was just about to have a little nap, I heard the little ringtone of my msn beckoning me. Frances was popping in to say hi. It was nice to chat with her for a bit. I think it is brilliant that the internet has provided us with a forum to establish international relationships. Some of my favourite people that I interact with on a weekly basis, I've never even met. And yes, they make me smile (wink!).
So I was telling Frances that I had lost my oomph for stamping and wasn't quite sure what to do about it. She suggested a few things, but I think that soley through chatting with her, my mojo started to lift a little. Is it possible to absorb creative vibes through osmosis??? lol!
By the time our conversation was through, my mojo was doing a little jig and ready to go.
With that, I created today's project.
I used this sweet little image from The Cat's Pajamas as my centre focal point and loosely followed the sketch designed by our brilliant Maria over at CSAYL . Soft Sky and Chocolate Chip, the main colours with some DP from My Mind's Eye. And of course, the Brown Ribbon. I can't seem to get enough of that! Hope I'm not boring you with the Brown Ribbon thing, but lately it seems to be my first choice. Guess I'm just like the kid that has to have a Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich every day for lunch...........well not quite, but I definitely have been favouring it lately! I had it complete and a little something seemed to be missing, thus the snow! If you want to play along, follow the link to CSAYL and as well you can enjoy the other creations that my talented friends have whipped up for you!
I have decided that in order to keep myself motivated to stamp, I have to maintain contact with my network. It's surprising the impact that networking can have on one's motivation. Thanks Frances for helping me get my mojo back! If all the stars are in place, it should be on a full groove very shortly!
