Working Under pressure

I have decided I am creatively challenged these days - I have recently been in a few swaps- I am not sure if I work better under pressure or if is I have to much stuff?  This is my card for the swap - we could only use three colors- every print paper I picked up and at least 4 , so it was back to basics for me -  I have never been much of a stamper, and have issues with straight lines hmm... maybe I should wear those glasses..

We have just signed up to do Relay for Life in Cullman on May 4th in honor of my husband Gary and Prostrate Cancer, it just amazes me there are so many support groups for women - buy hardly anything for men.
If you would like to join Team Wittlock with a small donation or light a luminary in memory of a family member please visit our page

Thanks for stopping in I am going to try to get more creative in the next few weeks with a class from Ten Seconds Studio online.

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!
