Where's My Mojo?

My scrapbooking mojo, that is!

I hate to admit, it has been almost a year since I touched my scrapbooking supplies. And I have an abundance of them! As with any hobby, we tend to accumulate a vast array of anything and everything related to it because....let's face it. We may very well need it one day. With me, I take it to a whole new level. I buy it because "Oh my goodness, this is beautiful" even though I may not have any pictures whatsoever for it. But that's alright. I will dress my children in matching outfits, take them to a location that would reward me with proper lighting, and pose them in such a way that....VOILA! I instantly have achieved the desired photographs that will fit perfectly with that paper or stickers that found it's way into my supply cabinet.

Before any of you call child protective services on me for forcing my children to take pictures they otherwise wouldn't have taken for the sake of my craft....rest assured they are willing participants....most...of ....the ...time.

This morning I decided, enough is enough. I must get my supplies in order and perhaps that will stimulate my creative juices. It was nice getting reacquainted with my darling paper supply, but sad to say, today was not the day to make my masterpieces.

Maybe after getting some sleep and running through my inventory in my head, I may wake up tomorrow in a more creative mood......till then!


  1. So glad you're back with it. It's never too late for anything! I laid quite a couple of my favorite hobbies down last year (hand-sewing, cooking, perfume-making) due to an illness in the family, but now I'm back with it, slowly. Organizing is the first step :)

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog- yours is lovely! I am jealous of your scrapbook talents! I so wish I had the talent for scrapbooking, but I just can't seem to make my pages look cute! XOXO

  3. That's an adorable kit, from your collection?
    I know the feeling of a mojoless life :/. Maybe the key is we need to produce it, bottle it and maybe Rob can endorse it?
    Theirs something so therapeutic about organization, and finding crafty supplies you forgot you had. Do you find that? papers you think so lovely you can't bare to use lol.
    Hope those juices get a flowing, would love to see some of your creations. Cease the crafty day! ;)
