OK, so I have my inspiration for my card, it's going to have pink, polka dots, Christmas themed! Yay! I might even add some Christmas music to listen to while I get creative! ( update: Christmas music was not played, after all it was Halloween, so I watched scary movies all day instead! )
 This is how I spark my do you?
I would love to hear your ideas!

Hi Sandee :D Aww, he is sooo cute!
When I need inspiration I come here and all my other favourite blogs and look at what other's have created and how they did it - then POW!! I usually end up with lots of wonderful ideas that make me smile for ages. Thank you :0) Mo x

Lots of crafty stuff there! I usually blog hop around looking at what other people are doing and that gets the juices flowing. Some times it is a kick in the butt by my DH cause he says I get gripey and he tells me to go in my craft room and don't come out till I get it worked out....oh my! He is really such a sweetheart to put up with me!

Digging through piles of patterned paper often sparks my mojo. I have my papers sorted by color family, so I pick a color that is appropriate for my mood or the season and start pawing though. If I don't feel like doing that sometimes I'll make a repeat card (something I've made before) and the act of creating gets me going. Other times it is best to just wander off and not sweat the lack of mojo. I love your happy, perky, dancing gingerbread dude.

Too darn cute Sandee!!! Hey, when I need to find my mojo, I just need to come visit your blog!!!

Kim said...

My creative mojo dies ALOT soooo I visit my friend's blog for inspiration. I'm pretty impressed with all her creations! BTW, that would be you. :)

Love the gingerbread man, too cute! I watched Halloween movies to get in the Halloween spirit, and the Christmas cd's are getting ready to be played this weekend! I tend to resist Christmas music until after Thanksgiving, but I need my mojo now!

Katie said...

I love that card!

When I lost my mojo, I either try to make something small, like a tag or a project life journaling card. Or I look around on blogs and pinterest until I see something that inspires me to create!

I also will watch "crafty" shows, like Project Runway and Craft Wars. I don't think I've ever sat down and watched an episode of either, but always was creating while they played in the background!

I get motivated by looking at what the beautiful women in my Mixed Media groups are doing, by going on Pinterest and looking at YouTube videos. I also keep a sketchbook full of ideas that I come up with during class and put them in there so if I'm ever stuck, I can go back and make what I wanted.<3 Thank you for the beautiful offer!

Great Card. The "icing" looks real and the rick rack adds to the dimension.

BJ said...

I usually tidy stuff - sure to find something you haven't used in ages if not your mojo.

Barb King said...

It looks like that gingerbread boy is ready to run right down the road, so cute! I get my inpiration from challenges, and I love papercrafts and Stamper's Sampler magazines.

BJ said...

Your word is SPARK today and I have just bought some SPARKLERS as we are going to a firework display tonight. Jolly cold here though.

Pinterest definitely has to be my ultimate creative juice provider! lol
But taking a look at all the blogs out there is another good way to find my always-getting-lost mojo, too!
Thank you for the giveaway Sandee. ♥
