How to find your crafty Mojo!

Do you have those days when you stare at all your craft stash and nothing happens? What do you do? Sometimes when I am struggling for ideas I take a break and usually when I return ideas start flowing. Other times I turn to Pinterest, but thats a dangerous place where hours are lost and you can never get them back! The Stampin' Up! catalogue is full if inspiration so you could just case a card from there.

In our team chat this week over at the Pootles Team  a lot of people were saying that they had lost their 'mojo' several suggestions were made about how to kick start it. I had not lost my mojo but I did follow one suggestion and found that after doing it I had designed 7 3D projects. Now that is pretty amazing for me as I am not a natural 3D designer, although I am I think getting better at it especially after this exercise.

What Sam (team leader)  suggested was to go around the house looking for things you could make a box of bag for. So I did, I was handy that it had just been Christmas as there were loads of things to be had. I had chocolate, candles, toiletries more chocolate, more candles .... Then I set about making boxes and bags. In the space of 3 hours I have 7 designed and the instructions written down. That is over 2 weeks of YouTube tutorials planned, with the 4 that are already scheduled I am now about a month ahead :-)

Here is a sneak peak of projects that will be coming up in the next few weeks :-)


Here is the pile of things I found, you may be able to work out what is in each bag/box!



We were also set a challenge to help with a lost mojo - make a project that is 'just because' not a birthday, anniversary, new baby, etc but just because ... so I entered one of the projects above into this challenge.



I hope the has helped you to get more creative, I hope I have also wet your appetite for my up and coming tutorials.

Until tomorrow when I am bringing you a very beautiful gift bag,
