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”? 😉
