I feel ill ... still, I so badly want to scrap but feel too blah to have inspiration. I have poured over my photos, looked through galleries and sketches, nothing is happening. I guess tonight is just a blob night, might have to crack open the chips and dip and curl up on the couch!
What do you do when you lack inspiration? Any tricks or pointers to get the creative juices flowing?

More LOs

I haven't been especially creative this week .. I put it down to feeling unwell, today I am feeling positively rotten, thank goodness it's my day off today, although I do have alot to do ... no rest for the wicked aye!!
Anyway here are the latest two LOs I have done

I am totally amazed at how well my paper pieced cupcakes turned out!!

This is sketch #12 from 52 Sketches .. I am loving the sketches over there, this one I found trickier to work with than the rest but I think it turned out pretty ok in the end!!

A few more LOs ...

Happy 4th Birthday Riley!!

Well on Thursday it was anyway!! He had a cake at Kindercare on Thursday (sadly I had to work on his Birthday) and yesterday we went to the Auckland Museum with Grandma, Grandad, great Aunty Valerie and his best mate Ben and his Dad Stuart. We had such a fun time at the muesum and them went to stay at Aunty Valeries afterwards where we caught up with my cousin Nicole and her two girls Jasmine and Isabella. The kids had a blast running around in the back yard with the garden clippings!
Here are a few of my fav pics ...

Busy couple of weeks ...

Lately I have been pretty much Running on Empty. Dealing with the emotional strain of missing my hubby, looking after my children without any help and working full time has really taken a toll and I have been exhausted both physically and mentally. I finally made a decision to save my sanity and have cut my work down to 3 days a week. Financially it will be a bit tighter but I do believe that it is the best decision I have made in a long while!! I feel like a huge weight has lifted off me and my creativity has come back ten-fold!! I am LOVING the extra days with my kids and also the extra time to scrap of course!!!
Anyway ... to those who have been supporting me even if it has just been chatting when I'm lonely I give you a big THANKYOU Jennie, Kris, Dana and Nic who have been a constant source of support and smiles for me :) Love you guys!!

Now here are my latest LOs

Misson Complete!!

I was wandering around The Page Map site and found some TAG maps. I thought they were so cool I wanted to make a heap of tags, so I did!! And that is what is now filling up my empty box!! I had so much fun making them and hope to incorporate them into my LOs every now and again!! I used only scrap paper and plan to make more soon!! A great time filler when you aren't in the groove to do any LOs!
So here they are ... 22 in total!!

POST 100!

If my calculations are correct this is my 100th post wooo for me!!!

I have been busy doing LOs lately which I'm really happy about. Tonight I have finished one I started a couple nights ago and started a new one, since I have been sitting staring at my almost complete LO for about 1/2 an hour I thought it was time to leave it alone and have another look tomorrow .. I'm also yawning my head off!! So am thinking bed is sounding REALLY good!!
Anyway here are my latest works :)

I am a little bit anal about some things, and one of the things I am really anal about is how I put my LOs into the kids albums. They have albums each, several each, and I am a stickler about having all the LOs in chronological order. I don't, however, scrap in chronological order! Although I am trying!! But because of that I have a stack of LOs ready to be filed!! I NEED more albums!!!! Anyone know where I can get some nice looking cheap albums? Let me know!!

My hubby is the best man in the world, I love him to death and miss him terribly. But while he has been in america he has been buying me lots and lots of lovely scrapping related items. Sadly although I am the proud owner of some things, such as a Fiskars Threading Waters Border Punch, I am unable to use them :( I am going to finish this post off with a few pics my dear husband has sent to tease me!!
