A creative break?

Posted by swewi on August 30, 2011

If you know me, you know I HAVE to create every day to stay happy. It doesn’t have to be much, I just need to do SOMETHING creative. THe last few weeks I haven’t been able to do something everyday, because of a constant pain in my right arm, all the way from the shoulder to my fingertips. I am trying to find answers to what this can be, and in the meantime I’m feeling sorry for myself, for not being able to do what I want. 🙂


Anyway, I’m sure this is something that will pass. It has to be. Random creating isn’t enough for me, and that’s that. 🙂


So, I had some good news this morning. I’m on the shortlist for the new DT over at My Scrapbook Nook!  There’s 40 names on the list, so the chance of getting on is SLIM, but I really hope I will get the chance! It’s an outstanding kit club, and the talent on there is outrageous!


On the forum, they asked us to post our favourite LO at the moment, and I had a hard time choosing. I guess that’s a good thing right? Well, I chose one of my latest LO, but it got me thinking. How many LO’s have I created so far this year? Working full time, I expected it to be a fairly low number, but I was surprised. I have done 97 LO’s so far this year. Seeing as today is day 241 out of 365, I’m pretty happy!


So, since this is my blog, and I can do whatever I want on here 😉 I’d like to share some of my favourites from my creations this year. Here goes:












How are you going with your creativity this year? How many have you done? Are you happy with the amount of creative time you’re getting? Please share… 🙂
