I expect most of us have experienced times when we have the time we've been seeking to do some papercrafting - only to feel that we've totally lost our "mojo". How do you get your mojo back? One thing I've done is to do some rather mindless tasks that can make my crafting easier when I get inspired again. Sometimes these tasks actually end up serving as inspiration to get me started crafting again.
Here's an example. I decided to emboss a bunch of paper to serve as card backgrounds. I embossed these in a variety of colors, patterns, and shapes using embossing folders, dies, etc.
Another way I've jump-started my mojo is by watching crafting videos. I was inspired to make these two cards (Sympathy Card, Serenity Card) when I was watching Theresa's 100 Moveable Parts DVD from HOTP.
A third way I've found to jump-start my mojo is by playing with some of my paper-crafting toys or trying different techniques. For instance, this card came into being because I was playing with heat embossing and some distress inks.
What are some of YOUR tricks for getting your mojo back?
