I need a creative kick in the butt!!

So cold here in New England! We are up to 25 degrees now which is a heat wave lately LOL!! Tuesday and Wednesday of this week will be better and January is almost over! Come on Spring ... can you tell I'm NOT a winter gal?!? I crave more daylight and being outdoors!!


One good thing about the weather is ...it's a great time to be in the studio trying to get some creativity going. However, I've been starring at stuff but have only done a few layouts lately. My art journaling has eluded me - I see other art journal projects and am amazed and then I can't get my own creative juices going.I certainly have the supplies needed ... just no ideas ... Is it too much on my mind ... new job, My Gram being ill, self doubt ... who knows. My recent diaster in the upstairs bathroom has lead to water stains on the downstairs bathroom ceiling which was just rennovated less than 1 year ago ... you should have heard me after I saw that!!


So ... I'm trying to move forward! I started watching what I eat and making some healthier food choices - a recent motivation ... (it always interests me what can motivate the changes). I can feel a few pounds off - but I'm not a weigh myself on the scale all the time person - I get it, but I find it can be frustrating as well. I will be able to tell by how my clothes feel. I am looking forward to walking again - outside and maybe running again at some later point. Moving forward ...


I wanted to share a layout I did manage to put together for my DT projects over at Right at Home Scrapbooking. I used a collection by Teresa Collins called Christmas Cottage. The papers of the collection are heavy weight and textured making them a joy to work with. Here's my layout ...

For close-ups and details, please stop the RAH Blog. Well, I'm off to see if I can create anything for my next month's projects. Please send creative vibes my way ... I'll  need them! Thanks for stopping by.
