    Hey Everyone!

    Just wanted to poke my head in to say hello! I have sort of been MIA for months! :sad2: I have really bad scrapblock. I am trying to power through it, but my work has been busy and HSing DS is proving to be a challenge right now. I think all of that combined has captured my mojo! Any suggestions for climbing out of the scrap funk?! :confused3

    Have a great day ladies! :goodvibes

    I too dissapear for a while, infact I sometimes have to force myself to crawl back. When I have trouble I find the best thing for me is just to walk away for a bit. when I feel better about everything going on I pull out something easy and start there.

    Hope things calm down a bit for you!

    Mine disappeared for a long time last year (April through Dec) what final brought me back was starting to work on a project I really wanted to do. I also cleaned out an reorganized my room. I put aside what I should be doing and just choose a fun project- once I started that I felt free to work again.

    planning a Disney trip gets me back in the mood (I usually pre-scrap then add photos)

    sometimes just printing off pictures helps

    Try to start with pictures you really want to scrap and that bring a smile to your face. Sometimes I have to jump around in order to keep the creative juices going.

    maybe kit some like groups together they you are just working with the same papers, embellies so it goes quicker.

    use some swap stuff, the thinking is pretty much taken care of :thumbsup2

    When I get scrap block I like to look at layouts on-line to motivate me. Sometimes I look at specific ideas for what I need for the pictures I have on hand, other times I look at sketches to just inspire me. I always have my local scrapbook friends to help motivate me too, and I let them know when I am in a funk:hug:.

    Hi girl!!
    If you want to get together to chat send me a PM!!!

    Scrapblock is the pits.. I walkaway and then look thru scrap sketches to get my mojo back. I have so much to do right now that I am getting overwhelmed but I have been breaking it up in smaller sections so I can push through it.
