Breaking Out of the FuNK. Blah!

Well I can honestly say I have been in a funk the last week.  Un-inspired.  Not motivated.  And just completely off.  I think it has to do mostly with a lack of sleep, or good sleep.  Also, being cooped up in the house the last 7 days because of germs and not wanting to spread them around to others.  I think those germs snacked a little on my creative bug...and left me worn out and only up for cuddles and television.    

But last night I was determined to break out of the blues:) and find my creative spark again.  Sometimes it just takes some nitty-gritty determination.  Sitting at my messy desk, staring at the possibilities:).  Two hours later, I had two Daybook pages and one Smash page knocked out.  And.  They came out pretty nice!  I always like to wake up the next morning and take a fresh look at what I finished the night before...It's kinda exciting to see a few bright pages and feel pretty happy with how they turned out.

  9. Glad your mojo is back - we can't have a Krista with no mojo! I do blame you entirely for the fact I now own a Smash book - it's sitting looking at me and I don't know what to do with it, but it is mine now x

  24. I finished two pages in my smash book a week ago or so when getting back from Florida and they are nowhere near as nice as these, I love the butterflies in a jar! Really great idea.

  32. Glad you had some play time for yourself & recharged the creative batteries. One very sick husband here (there are definitely some very nasty bugs about) - he never complains so to see a hulking 6ft 4in macho no nonsense R struggling to swallow anything.........
    You take care

  35. Woops, was just half way through a comment and it disappeared! Just wanted to say how excited I was when I went back to the Dutch Saturated Canary Followers Blog today and found that it's the gorgeous Dutch girl digi you drew for their blog that is the surprise for us all today! I can't wait to colour her up, she's beyond lovely Krista! Big hugs, Wends xxx

  36. Hi Krista! Hope your family is on the mend. Poor Philly!! I kinda love those "curl up on the couch with the kiddies and a movie" night. Although, my guys are now 16 and (almost) 12 - it's not as much as I'd like!! Thanks for the heads up about the new challenge, I'm a new follower there now and can't wait to play with my new image and enter the challenge!!

    Gorgeous SMASH book btw! I have yet to create one, you certainly make it look nice and easy!!

    Have a great day!

  37. Hope you all are feeling better! Summer bugs are the worst!
    Super fantabulous pages! Coloring your images are so fun! I have a request. I just colored the Backyard General for my hubby bc our son is all army and guns - his dad is his hero! I really want more of your boy images...a soldier would be perfect!! Zane's bday is the end of September and he'll be 5. He would think it was the coolest thing in the world to have a birthday Army card ;o)

  38. I hope your day is better today...Smile... you know how to that best!!

  42. Hello Krista, hope you are all much better now!! I know that feeling when the mojo takes a few days off :-) It's great you found some time and inspiration to create those pages, they look fabulous! Have checked the Dutch blog and the image you created for them is fantastic (no suprise here, hehe, all your images are :-))
