Well, it's the first of the month and that means upload day at Scrapjazz.
It was such a struggle to get my assignments done. It had nothing to do with the product. It was a very fun line of paper, stickers, flowers and jewels by Moments Defined. I was really excited to play around with the stuff. And the theme was motherhood. A cinch, right?
But, then the dreaded funk hit!!!! Oh my!!!! I was ruining piece after piece of good paper everytime I tried to scrapbook.
Sometimes I would just move paper around on my desk. After 10 minutes or so of doing that, I would leave my room. There is nothing more depressing than having the time to scrapbook but your mojo has left the building. :(
My friend Michelle gave me some tips to get out of my funk and it worked! She told me to do one or all of the following:
-look thru magazines or idea books
-lift a favorite artist
-scrap a photo I've already scrapped but try to do it in a different way this time
-use a product or try a technique you've never tried before
I followed her advice and went thru some online galleries that I haven't visited in awhile. I was so inspired after seeing all the wonderful layouts, I marched right into my scraproom and began to create. I managed to finish my assignments and even do one just for me using some new patterned paper I've had sitting around for a week.
So, thank you Michelle! You saved my sanity!
