Get outta your funk by creating something for someone else!
I have to say that mojo steps out on me FAR more than I wish she/he would? (Is mojo a he or a she? I've never figured that one out).
Anyhow, one of the biggest mojo replenishers for me is to put aside whatever it is that I may be working on for myself or for an assignment and to create something for someone dear to me.
I am not sure if I am far too much of a perfectionist when it comes to "work" and it sends mojo high tailing it outta my life or what my issues tend to be, all I know is I find true satisfaction and enjoyment in creating for someone else as the mere thought of how the recipient of one of my projects will be affected keeps a smile on my face. Once I sit down to create for someone else, I find that mojo winking at me from the door of my scrappy room and soon enough she/he is joining me in full swing.
This lil' number is a mini album that I made for my dear friend Alison that lives in Dublin. I wanted to create a little book for her to drop photos from the year into....sort of a "2007 at a glance" sort of thing. I hope she likes it!
I also have to say that any time I immerse myself in product by We R Memory Keepers that mojo seems to pep right up! The "Foil, Glitter, Flock" rubons that I used on the cover DEFINITELY perked mojo up! You should have seen me squealing like a girl telling her friends about her first kiss, when I was trying these out for my first time. DEFINITELY fun and mojo replinishing! In fact, keep posted, because I'll probably make a demo video showing how to use them soon!
So my advice for the day is if you find yourself in a funk....think of someone else! It works for me!
