I always hear people say the phrase, “stuck in a rut”. Do you need a way out?! Here are some ideas to consider:
1. Use a sketch.
I used the latest one over at Sketchy Thursdays. There was something about the simple design that made me want to use it. I took this sketch…
…and I created this layout:
2. Use your older supplies.
My older supplies have allowed me to think outside of my usual range of ideas. I brought out the brads from my embellishment stash, and I mixed it with some of the latest patterned paper from American Crafts. Having a combination of some old and some new supplies will always bring something unique!
3. Use some of your shape punches.
I decided to take out one of my flower punches and one of my circle punches. I used 72 Degrees and Sunny by We R Memory Keepers. I love how this one turned out. Don’t you think this looks very “Sarah”?! …and yes, I used brads on this one too, hehe.
If you get stuck in a rut, try something different. You are bound to come up with something creative!
Today, the weather was warm and comforting, so the dogs and I spent a good amount of our day outside on the patio. While I was outside reading, I noticed all of the pretty flowers that added splashes of color to our house.
Pretty stuff, huh?! It’s amazing how a garden can make someone’s day.
Maui and Hilo kept following me around when I was trying to snap those flower photos. I think they were getting jealous of how much camera time the flowers were getting, so they constantly kept trying to “pose” for a photo. They have totally become pros. I snapped one, and this is what I got. They make me smile… when they’re not being naughty, of course!
As for making my blog private, it looks like the majority of my readers wouldn’t mind having to log in with a password. Phew! However, I am still contemplating the best option for me and my work. As for those of you who do mind, I’m curious to know why.
If I decide to change things up around here, my readers will be the first to know.
PS: How’s work? Do you feel like you “…need to get out of here”?
