A Conundrum!!!

Good Afternoon Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

A question for you all!
What do you do when your mojo goes on holiday?

In all the time I have been crafting I can honestly say that this is the first time I am seriously struggling to craft!  I have spent the last 4 days sitting at my craft desk, start a couple of things that have ended up in the bin!

Do you get frustrated?
I am so frustrated it is driving me bananas (it doesn't take much) LOL!
I have a couple of ideas on projects I want to do but once I start it just doesn't gel, I walk away have a cuppa and come back, look at it and see a complete travesty of a creation so in the bin it goes.

Solution - Maybe

I have now decided to just walk away for a couple of days and take a complete break.
Hubby and I are taking a couple of day away to visit the Isle of Man and I am hoping a change of scenery will reignite my enthusiasm for crafting.

I am going to take my camera and sketch pad with me hoping to get some inspiration.

Do you have any tips for re-igniting your mojo?
Please share!

Many thanks for you support!

I'm sure your mojo will return soon. When I get 'stuck' I tend to tidy my craft drawers and bits 'n' bobs then find things that I want to 'play' with! Enjoy your time in the Isle of Man - I've never been but it's on our 'to visit one day' list.

I do exactly what you're doing, my friend. When my mojo goes on vacation, so do I! :-D I always come back with my creativity inspired and rejuvenated.

Take a walk on the wild side, or maybe just forget about it all for a while and recharge the little grey cells, Hugs Jennifer xx

I think you're doing exactly the right thing Linda - just enjoy your break and don't even think about craft - your mojo will come knocking! Hugs rachelx

Sometimes when you have a lot to do your mojo just goes walkabout. We sit down most days and expect to create something lovely. Have a break and you will come back full of crafting beans! Enjoy your break Linda.

When my mojo goes I usually end up walking away from it or just make embellishments ready to go on projects. Enjoy your break.

Don't worry Linda! I have had my fair share of no mojo for crafting! so usually what helps me is to get away from my desk, do other things and I am addicted to Pinterest! I love looking at all the fantastic cards that other people make, and slowly slowly my mojo gets back and I am eager again.
So I am sure your trip will help you clear your head until you come back!
enjoy your trip!
xoxo Olga
