A received many wonderful questions earlier this week, but one stuck out, and I wanted to answer it right away.
How can I get back my mojo? It’s been gone for almost 2 yrs now. Ugh! I feel like I’m the only person with this problem. *sigh*
Short-term or long-term bouts ofÂ “scrapper’s funk” can really throw you and your memory keeping for a loop. Photos pile up and the guilt builds. Fortunately, there are several strategies that can help ease that blah feeling or jolt you out if it completely!
Take more photos – When I take that one special shot, I just can’t wait to scrap it. Spend more time behind the lens to boost your incentive.
Buy something new – Fun new toys are a quick way to rev up the scrapping excitement.
Try a scraplift – Take an inspiring layout and put your own spin on it. Knowing that the end product will likely look great always helps!
Start a journal – Sometimes you feel like the stories just are there. Let the words come to you the old fashioned way – with pen and paper.
Use a template – If you’re not feeling creative, let someone’s else skills do the hard work for you.
Take a class – Learn new skills or brush up on ones you’ve mastered. Find classes with lots of interaction so you can feed on the group’s energy.
Re-do an oldie – Take a layout you created long ago and re-create it with your new, fantastic skills. Revel in how far you’ve come.
Be OK with it – You’re not a bad mom if you take a break from scrapping. Plop those photos in some page protectors and move on.
Do you have any tips for breaking out of a funk and recovering your scrapping mojo?
