Default What to do?

Does anyone else find they hit a major block once all the challenges are finished for the month? I have done my passport and now I can't settle my brain to scrap anything, it is like I need to be told what to do. I have a wet, stormy night at home, pretty much on my own so really want to scrap but can't decide where to start... talk about first world problems

Raising my hand! I've had the same thoughts. Ugh! lol I still have a few to do for this month's passport, but I have felt the same way for previous months.

How about dusting off past challenges? Outside the box was one of my favorites...

I like the scraplift idea too! Maybe paper to digi?

I love the freedom it brings when I finish the challenges!! And if I get stuck and want more inspiration, then I go back and redo some challenges, or I check out the paper scrapbooking FB groups for layouts that I like to scraplift.

Great ideas here ladies. My husband has been in hospital all weekend and should be coming home today so I have plenty of time this week to take up some of these ideas while I stay home to look after him.

I hope your husband is okay, Kim!

I agree with Wendy... I always found it kind of freeing, and a big accomplishment to have my Passport finished early. Then it was time to play!

Thanks Wendy and Tammy, hopefully he will recover from this and we can put the whole episode behind us. Hubby was diagnosed with prostate cancer at the end of last year. They were watching it carefully but decided in February that surgery was the best option. He was scheduled for April but of course our hospitals cancelled all non emergency surgeries. Thankfully he was one of the first rescheduled and now it is done.

Oh my goodness! I'm so thankful they were able to get him scheduled in asap during this whole virus!!! I'll be praying for him to have a great follow-up and to never have to face this battle again!!

This doesn't happen to me often, but when It does I feel it's from burn out.... because I did accomplish so much my mojo says no more. lol Do you have any old challenges from previous passports that you didn't complete? Or if I really want to scrap but don't seem to have the spark, that's when I take the time to get organized and ready for the next month, OR I spend a lot of time in the gallery giving love and gaining inspo..... and one other thing I sometimes to is just go through my stash pick a kit that I haven't used yet and I just go with it.... I worry about photos later or just make it into an art journal page.... just something to keep me scrapping and going.
