Long time no post, huh?

Hi guys, how ya been?  Sorry to go missing on you last week.  I had sort of an unplanned blogging vacation.  I feel like my creativity has dried up, we had a busy week with things at the girls school and before I knew it, it was Wednesday and then Thursday and then the weekend! 

We had a dual birthday party yesterday for some friends of ours and I normally would have had the cards/tags made in advance.  But this time I put it off until the morning of the party.  The creativity and desire to create just hasn't been there.  I had to force myself to go downstairs and make the tags for their gifts.  The end results weren't something I was thrilled with, but they were okay :)  I haven't felt like this in a long, long time and I'm a little worried, I must say.

Here's the finished tag...

I'm still trying to play with those sequins and trying the random placement thing, but I don't really know if I like how they turned out.  I still feel like the tag is missing something.  Baby steps to getting back on the horse, right?

I hope you all had a great week last week and a wonderful weekend.  I'll be back tomorrow, sharing what I have on my workdesk.  Yes, there is a project on it right now :)  I feel like the only way to get back to creating is to keep creating.  Thanks for hanging in there with me and for stopping by today!


  1. So glad to see you back...I know the feeling and it's sometimes hard to get back into the swing of things. Life takes over! :) Taking a break is always a good thing though. This tag is perfect for a little girl. :)

  2. This tag is really pretty! I think baby steps are good! Don't worry too much, I'm sure your mojo will come back when you least expect it!

  3. you know it is ok to take a break now and then! i know I do. I take several weeks off at a time every couple of months. I have projects stock piled so I still blog but don't worry. the mojo will flow!

    super cute tag!! love the pink

  4. I love the tag - hand made is ALWAYS appreciated. The pops of pink look awesome against the zebra print. :) Breaks can be a good thing! Sorry that you've not been feeling the mojo lately. I was super productive a couple weeks ago and was whipping out pages left and right. But last week? I didn't do a thing. Finally got something together yesterday. I agree that sometimes you just have to work through it. Spend some time experimenting and doing things you wouldn't normally. And if you don't like it, at least you were trying something. The mojo will return!

  5. I'm so glad you are back!

    I'm sorry your mojo is taking a little vacation. Mine does that sometimes, I'll do tons of crafting, and then I'll need a break. But then I'll just want to be all crafty again! I think it just ebbs and flows sometimes.

    The tag you made is wonderful. The sequins and pink really pop against your wrapping paper!

  6. I missed you!
    I was about to send out the search party :)
    No seriously, I am sorry you are feeling uninspired.
    And I love the colors of your tag.

    I know I go through periods, too.
    I haven't scrapbooked in almost a week either.
    I have had the same page sitting on my mat and just haven't felt it!

  7. So happy to see you back in blog land :)
    I find I am more creative when I can't create, lol. The ideas are flowing, like right now, when I am working, teehee.
    I think your tag turned out great. I do know what you mean though, when you look at something you made and its not up to what you want it to be.

  8. What a cute tag. The pink really pops on the black background. I bet she loved it!
