Missing mojo ......

........has anyone found it??

I haven't a clue what's up with me this week. Normally i'm quite excited about making my cards but I just don't seem to be able to get motivated at the minute. Maybe it's because I have taken on quite a few awkward orders ..... you know sometimes it's hard to say no to folk, especially when they're an existing customer. Sometimes it's difficult to understand exactly what some people mean when they say they want a special card. I do quiz them for details but all you get is 'sure whatever you think' ....... anyone else find it hard to make cards for people they don't know?

Anyway, i shouldn't complain, this is what keeps my obsession funded so i'll just have to search for some inspiration for these projects ..... any tips for male cards greatly welcomed!!

Above is a simple wee card I made for my cousin and his partner who have recently moved away from wee Norn Iron to the big bad world on the mainland ..... Reading to be exact. It's probably lovely but rather them then me with the commuting times they now have. It's the only time I have used this sale-a-bration set but it is simple and effective so maybe i should make some more of these to see if I can get myself back into the swing of things again.
Maybe next time i'll be a touch more enthusiastic, next job today is to finally place my SU order from the new catalogue ..... might have to starve all week!! lol
If your heading to the convention, have a great time :) x

New Beginnings

WOW! How cool is this? The UPS man has visited and brought goodies ..... yes! My starter kit! I am now officially an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. My new adopted mummy in the world of Stampin' Up is none other than Monica Gale .... you can find her here ...... lots of help and inspiration on here :)

Now, my crafting time has been very limited lately due to redecorating, sickness and a few parties here and there. I have managed to quickly put this together, wasn't sure about the distressed look but it is growing on me and I have to admit, i rather like it. This one is rich razzleberry and whisper white and i have also made some in very vanilla and rose red. Think i may make a few more of these to send to friends and family at Christmas. It also gave me a chance to show off one piece that I produced with my new cuttlebug :)

You'll have to let me know what you think!
