Loss of Motivation to…

I know I haven’t written in a while, but I was in need of a break. There were a lot of things that happened (GOOD and bad) since I last posted, and I couldn’t keep up with all of the changes. No, don’t worry — it wasn’t anything anxiety related.

On another note, here’s what all of us have been up to:


Thank you, Jennie, for bringing us these delicious cupcakes!



The floor is now officially “walkable”. I still need to take pictures of the way it looks now. You’d be amazed at the way this house looked when we bought it versus the way it looks now. It looks like a completely different place.

Last week, we lost all our carpet!

The dogs have been keeping each other busy. Maui loves Hilo’s company, and Hilo loves Maui’s company. Their favorite game is what I like to call “UFC” – the ultimate fighting champion game. Maybe later on today, I’ll get a video of what this looks like. They wrestle and wrestle, and then wrestle some more until they pass out.

Maui was NOT thrilled that most of the furniture got moved into the bedroom and the patio.

We decided to all relax in the patio since the weather was nice.

Hilo decided to use Maui as a pillow.

I wake up to this... every morning! Apparently, they like to play early in the morning too.

I wake up to this every morning! They like to play early before I start my day. I really need to start teaching them the trick, "Clean up."

There’s LOTS going on in my life right now, so I haven’t really had the time to scrap the way I used to. I’ve been so entertained reading wedding magazines and browsing online for dresses, so I haven’t had the time to scrap. I did, however, manage to complete a few layouts here and there.

This layout was done for the latest challenge over at Scrap Schemes. Come check out what the other gals created, and join in on all the fun!

The rest of the following layouts were created just for fun. I haven’t been too thrilled with my outputs, but it might be due to a lack of motivation. I’ve totally lost my scrapping mojo. Somebody help me find it, or send some my way.

Someone please give me some scrapping inspiration… or a challenge…! I have NO motivation to scrap. Waaaaah!!! Does anyone mind if I lift one of their layouts — send me a link to one of your layouts?! I promise I’ll give you credit. πŸ˜‰

To the winners to the recent RAKS: I know I haven’t sent out your packages yet. I’ve been swamped, but I promise I’ll get them out to you. Thanks for being so patient!

In search of scrapping inspiration,
