Lost...but hopefully found soon.

Sorry for the lack of posts lately.  I have lost ALL creative mojo.  If any of you have seen it or have a little extra to spare, please send it my way.  Thank you.

In an effort to post something (anything...I mean, come on!) I thought I would share a couple of Imagine cards that I never got around to posting.  They aren't my favorites, but at least it's something.  (Right?)
This was Brandon's anniversary card.  I used the Imagine More cartridge.

This was another attempt at a gender neutral card.  I used Nursery Rhymes and Sugar & Spice.

I just wanted an excuse to cut out this little house.  I was thinking of using it for a housewarming card.
So what have I been doing instead of crafting during naptime around here?  I have been cooking a lot, cleaning and trying to catch up on some household chores and taking care of a little one with strep throat.  Luckily we caught her strep throat really early, which translates into a kid that isn't sick enough to be still, but one that feels yucky enough to be really crabby.  That's pretty much it.  Kind of boring, huh?  Once the weather starts to cool off, I always get in the mood to sort of nest.  So...even if I haven't been crafting - at least the house looks great and there's been lots of good food to eat.  (Too bad I don't ever say..."Gee, it's cool outside.  I should go workout.")  ;)

Seriously...if anyone has any creative mojo to spare or if you see mine wandering about - send it my way.  Is there anything you'd like to see?  (Layouts...what types: baby, birthday, holiday?)

Those are cute :) I especially love the house one. I HATE those blocks where you just can't seem to come up with anything you like. I hope it passes soon.

lauren these cards are great! I hope you find your mojo! Usually, if my mojo is taking a break..I just make a lot of embelishments with cute PK faces, they sit around for awhile then I finally put them into cards or LO's..hope that helps...I'd love to see some more baby LO's for some inspiration! :)

Aw I am sorry it's gone lately, Lauren. I think those cards you posted are super cute!! Have your hubby snap some pictures of you and your little one baking. I'm sure you could whip up a an adorable "Baking with Mommy" layout!! I hope your little girl is better very soon, sick kiddos are just no fun at all. :(

Awee! I wondered where you disappeared off too. I know what you mean. Girl you need to fight with that mojo to come back. I haven't been scappin either. My post have been of some old ones I did a few weeks back. Got in this Wednesday for one day. But I feel ya!

I do like the feel of a clean house! I hope your little one gets better soon. Good thing you caught it early enough.

Take care!

Ofcourse, as always I love all your cards! They are FABULOUS!!!!

Doesn't look like you lost it to me! Those cards are ADORABLE!! Love the house. I have posted nothing in weeks! I have no time these days and am barely able to check in on you all so don't feel bad at ALL! It happens...♥Tammy

{{{ HUGS }}}! I feel your pain! My poor little blog is feeling so neglected! I did manage to get our Halloween layouts done last weekend but I haven't gotten around to taking pictures and posting them. Other than those projects, not much is going around here either. Maybe we'll both find our crafting vibes soon!

BTW - I think your new cards are adorable! :)

A sick baby can take a lot of your energy from you. This may be the reason why your mojo is not with you right now. I'm pretty sure that as soon as your girl feels better your mojo will be back. As from now, I send you a lot of possitive energy.
XOXO,
