mojo.



Happy Monday!

Bloggin' live this morning.

Don't know if it is the lack of mojo, laziness, vacation mode or indecision that has me slowly crafting.  I spent all morning going through my Feedly, thoroughly enjoying the process but in the back of my mind I was thinking I was procrastinating crafting.

So, I got to it and starting throwing things together.  I love Aqua so I came up with this:


It's no secret how much I love coffee inspired projects...they always 'perk' me up.



I was inspired by



Here are my 'failed' attempts:



I really wanted to use that happy die cut but it, well, didn't make the cut.

All the papers/cardstock ala November/December Artful Delight Card kit!

stamps:  Reverse Confetti

My mojo has disappeared as well - as I sit scrolling through my zillion Feedly posts, leaving a comment here, getting side-tracked there, and all around wasting time! Gahh...cards to be made! Your card: fabulous! Love the polka-dots and coffee (I'll never tire of your coffee-themed cards!) cup combination, and the sentiment works wonderfully as is! I've often made die-cuts that I 'insist' on placing - need to remember - as you've shown - that all cuts don't need to make the cut! Off to see what I can make (and discovered I left my camera at my parents' *palm smack on forehead*) Hugs~c

A great cup of inspiration...love that twine, Amy!

I think leaving off the happy was also the right choice. keep the die cut around and maybe it will be the starting point to another project :) aside from that i think your creations are always superb. i love the coffee creation and i esp love the foam detail :) many hugs!

Love that you shared the fails! Seriously, I could start another blog entirely dedicated to all of mine! But I love the final result! You would never know that your mojo was on vacation!

I love seeing your process. The end result is gorgeous. I had three separate crafty stops yesterday...lots of happy creating going on yesterday. At work today :(!

Your coffee projects always perk me up! I am feeling the slump too. I have become a couch potato, especially for sappy, feel-good shows.
