How to get your Mojo back?

Just wondering How do you get your Mojo back?
 I have been organizing forever -- I think this be the number 1 problem papercrafters have ?
 We think we need to have everything pretty and neat to start.
 We think we need everything tools, paper, and  more is better?
          I went to a local crop last Friday and did 6 pages Did I find MoJo?

So I have decided that maybe it is just not that important - I just need a clean desk and a pair of scissors and some glue or tape-after all I just make a mess!

So I have come up these thoughts on MOJO
1.  Keep your travel bag packed
2. Create some kits of your favorite supplies
3. Add just a few photos (otherwise you spend all the time trying to decide)
4. Add  friends to chat with
5. Find a small table that folds -- create a space in another spot --
I have a folding table in the bedroom where I watch tv and facebook -- I am starting to sort through all my photos and put them in books (not a scrapbook  but the Project life 6 photos to a page ) going to pull a few favorites to scrapbook.  I have realized I will NEVER scrapbook them all in my lifetime. So why not have them in a album to enjoy then in a box on the closet shelf?

I found  Mojo last week -  but it must have decided to leave when it looked at my mess-- so the friend called Purge came along and encouraged me GET STARTED!

Have a great week!
BTW  we are still seeing doctors Gary is better but needs a new MRI to rule out Bone Cancer - this Cancer stuff is so scary and like a BAD roller coaster ride!

Praying for good news for you two!!

Love that you found the time to get your scrap on! I tend to keep my [go-to] stuff in 'ready-to-go' organization - I've gotta have some organization or I'd never get started!

And-- I agree - we'll NEVER use every photo on our scrapbook pages so we need to enjoy them in other ways too!

I told my daughter the other day that my living room looks like a "Hoarders" show gone very bad!! And it is mostly scrap stuff! I keep thinking that if I made some more things I could clear some of this out of the way--but, seems like every time I make one thing, I end up buying something else to replace the used items with (and then some)------and on it goes~~ well, at least I am a happy person under all of the paper!! You are one of my favorite 'enablers'--
