Default Having a browse for my mojo...

I have been away from scrapping for sooooo long - we have had a real crappy year (well actually a roller coaster of highs and lows but omg the worst lows you could ever imagine )

I scrap as a story teller and to document my memories, and have never felt really comfortable to use it to vent or express emotion so being so sad all the freaking time (like all the time)i haven't had the right frame of mind to scrap at all.

It sucks too because i was aiming for a year long passport blackout

Just in the last few weeks i have been feeling like i could get back into it so i have been lurking in the store and in the forums.

Anyways i thought i would say hi to break the ice

Tracey - isn't that a great thing about scrapping? You can take a step back, take a breather, and then come back whenever you are ready. I'm like you, I don't often scrap about the negative stuff, the unhappy stuff, so I totally get how you feel about that.

Glad you are starting to feel invigorated again about scrapping.

Aw, girl. I wish I could give you a hug and a hot mocha latte. I hope 2020 is a better year for you.

I lost my mojo after NSD, and I was so worried I would never scrap again. But I started doing the challenges this month, and it jump started my mojo.

Scrapping makes me feel like myself. I hope you find the joy in it again.

Hi Tracey. Welcome back!

I can totally relate to your emotions about scrapping. I can't scrap when I'm at my lowest either. Just like you, I have to be in the right state of mind to scrap.

I hope you'll find your mojo back and find inspiration here in the gallery. I'm looking forward to seeing your pages.

I'm sorry it's been a poopy year, but hope you are able to see the light at the end of the tunnel and 2020 is much better to you and your family!

Hey Tracey! It's great to see you again!
It's been a rough year for me, too, so I totally understand. I haven't been able to scrap since September because I'm working to get my mom moved up to Idaho with us.
Sometimes scrapping the low points can be cathartic. I'm looking forward to seeing your LOs again!
{{Big hugs!}}
