Wanna hear a secret? Sshhh. Don't tell anyone. I have finally figured out how to get in the scrapping groove. In other words, get my mojo flowing. Yep, I've found the secret to my mojo. Here it is. Ready?
First of all, I don't stop working on a layout until I am happy with it. With each layout that I complete, my confidence grows. I say to myself, "self! you can do this!!" Now if I only do about one layout a month (like I did in 2005), I lose my mojo in between each layout. So before each layout I procrastinate, don't feel creative, think I'll never come up with anything good again, etc. HOWEVER, if the minute I complete a layout - I start another one...I keep that mojo flowing.
This is a huge revelation for me tonight!!
I'm not delusional. I know I'm no Jackie B. or Lisa McGarvey (my two favorite scrappers), however, I can be creative, I can do something that makes me happy and I can make it my own.
Now see if I didn't have this blog, I might not have ever come to this realization or be able to put this into words. Here's a layout (above) that I finished tonight, I'm already brewing up my next one in my head, I'm off to start it now. Those Heidi fuzzy-rub ons are calling my name.
