A Visit To My Craft Room

I spent some time in my craft room yesterday.  My time in there has been limited by lack of desire, lack of mojo, and lack of motivation.  I would get all ready for a creative session, sit down at my desk ready to create, and nothing.  This would last for about 5 minutes, after which I would get frustrated and put everything I took out away!  I was inspired to try a group of rectangle dies I bought in November, and use paper I have had for 3 years and loved too much to cut!  Here is where my adventure led:

I was really surprised that the background color, which was 8.5" X 11" made 2 cards, and I only used 4.5 X 12 of the beautiful paper!  The cards are not done yet, they need a sentiment on an elegant die cut.

Hoping the mojo stays alive, and my fingers hold up!


  1. Oh when your MoJo woke up it did so in grand style. I love this paper and the layered effect is always a winner with me. I know what it's like to have Mr. MoJo run away for a while, but keep your chin up. It's return in earnest soon. Enjoy the day.

  2. These are both such pretty cards with the triple effect! I can identify with your missing mojo - it happens to all of us:) Keep trying, it will come back :)
