Inspired? - not so much

While away on vacation, three scrap related magazines came in the mail. So i should be really excited and going through them, and loving all the wonderful pages. but nope. not so much.

So this is my question - is it me, or is the industry hitting a stall? have we reached the pinnacle of scrapbookdom? Have all the ideas been found, and all the new ways to put photos on paper discovered? have i seen it all???? wow, that didn't take long. i hope not.

Anyway, inspiration is not me lately. I have been scrapping , but truth be told - they are quickies. Did you Ever do a scrap quickie? i don't do a lot of embellishing, and yes, i fake it. i use maps. lol.

So while you're here, to entertain me and whoever else may be interested, tell me what you think - are you bored with the examples du jour? where do you go, what do you do to get your mojo going?


  1. Love those maps also Beth...shhhhh. I won't tell if you don't!

  2. Yup...doesn't help that I lost my mojo and I don't think he's coming back...

  3. you get Scrapbooks ETC? If you don't, go get the last issue. I don't know which month (they're always soooo far ahead) it is, but it's a pink cover. MAN, that thing is FILLED with inspiration. I haven't been that inspired for a loooong time! Good luck sista!

  4. If my mojo is hiding, I like to visit non-scrap sites. Etsy, Funky Finds and an artist by the name of Lisa Congdon, oh and I cant forget Claudine Hellmuth! I love seeing their creativity, the colors they use in their art, new techniques. My mojo usually will want to come out and play by the time Im done! :)
