Uh-Oh! Missing My Mojo

Has anyone seen my mojo running around? One thing's for sure, it ain't hangin' with me! This weekend I had the chance to scrap with some super sweet scrappy friends. Very fitting given it was National Scrapbook Day on Saturday. The day started at 9:00 am and ended at 1:30 am. Wanna guess how many layouts I completed in those 16-1/2 hours? Zero. Zip. Zilch. Nada. I couldn't get my scrappy groove on to save my life!!! I would pick up paper...then put it back down. I sorted through photos...smiled...even laughed at a few...and placed them back in their envelope. I flipped through idea book after idea book looking for inspiration. I certainly found plenty but when I put scissors to paper, I just couldn't do it. Nothing, and I do mean NOTHING, worked. I finally decided to let it go. Why push it when you aren't feeling it? There will be other chances and I feel sure Mr. Mojo will eventually return.

I suppose you are wondering what I DID do during all that time. I ooh'ed and ahh'ed over everyone's creations, helped pull together co-ordinating items for my scrapping friends, spent a nice little chunk of change on new items at the sweet little scrapbook store we visited and laughed until I hurt. Oh yeah, I can't forget to mention all the food I consumed and you can bet chocolate was devoured in enormous quantities! With my hands idle, I HAD to do something...popping M&M's seemed to be the best option!!!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend celebrating National Scrapbook Day! Wishing you a week of sunshine and smiles! xoxo -L


  1. You had fun, though. That's what matters. It'll be back when it's good and ready! :)

  2. At least it's better than having to paint a deck! Today, my body is acking for movements I am not use to. At least I'm glad it's done and it looks great. A nice forest green, just like I like it! It's nice to see you were well surrounded for the national scrap day! Hugs, Chantal

  3. You had fun...and that was the best part!!!! I know what you mean about the mojo.....if I see yours I will certainly send it your way...maybe ours ran off to that island beach together!!!!

    Love ya girlie and wishing you a Fabulous week!!!

  4. If the mojo isn't there, no need to keep on trying ... I know the feeling. You did seem to have enjoyed the day, so no worries there right!
    I've sooooo missed you, I hate it when I can't seem to find the time to keep in touch with all of my friends. And when I do have the time, sometimes all the energy I've left is to hang on the couch and watch TV. I hope I'll snap out of this mood soon. Just know that I'm missing you!
    Love xxx Peggy

  5. As long as you had fun. I have been going through some of the same problems, and figured out it was b/c I was forcing myself that I wasn't happy with what I was I'm starting to get back on track! Hope you have a great week:)
    Love, Jess

  6. Well hey! I didn't get anything scrappy done either. I spent the weekend chasing down last minute donations and Sunday on the golf course from sun up to sun down...totally not complaining...there are far worse places to spend the
    I hope you have a splendid week!

  7. But U had fun...and that is what is important!! I'm sure Mr. Mojo will be back soon! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

  8. Glad to hear you had a good time with your friends & don't sweat the missing will come back with a vengeance & I bet that when it hits your next creation will be a stunner!!! Have a great week {{Hugs}} xx

  9. I think mojo hides when good friends are around :) There is just too much distraction!

  10. I haven't had alot of mojo lately either, not sure where it's at, maybe it's on vacation at the beach with your mojo, hope their having a nice time and enjoying margaritas!
    (At least you got chocolate!)
    Have a great weekend!

  11. Yea, I know all about losing your mojo lately! Maybe mine and yours took off on an extended tropical vacation! I was at a weekend retreat and ended up with 5 layouts and 2 cards, and most of those were challenges I already had planned out. Could not get into it AT ALL. But yep, food was plentiful and GOOD!! hehehe.
