In haste...

Since I want to get to my scrap desk while I have some creative intentions!

1. Got the job!! The panel was unanimous so that was nice. :) I'm happy about it.

2. I have started biking to work. Missy Moo very calm about the new mode of transport. She got the helmet out this morning (Saturday) and was keen to go again.

3. Hard to sleep in when you have 2 space invaders.

4. Do we have another Mad Photographer in training?

5. The crop last night was enjoyable but I suddenly seem to lose my mojo. It's partly the photos I'm working with - MIL's ones, and 8x8 so not much scope or incentive to be very creative. I feel down about it because I spend a lot of time in the week thinking about things I want to do, even jotting them in my idea book, and then when I sit down I lose all enthusiasm. *sigh* Any suggestions? I do schedule some creative time in on the weekends but it's very limited with all the other boring stuff I need to do to keep our family going.

A big congratulations to the new SBO DT members and a big "Well-Done-You-Creative-Chicks" to those who are standing down!


  1. Yay on the job - woohoo!
    Lost mojo - hhmm - only scrap photos you love or it ain't gonna happen - does that help? lol. Nope guess not - sorry then can't help.

  2. Congratulations on getting the job, Penny!!
    I'm not surprised that Missy Moo loved riding on the bike to daycare ... Rob used to take the boys to preschool on his bike when they were younger, and they just loved it. Now it's a bit harder as Tyler is getting too big, but he does take him on the Vespa ... when it's working, LOL.

  3. Big CONGRATS on the job, a unanimous decision must feel good!

    As for the creating ... it's hard when you only have a certain allocated time for it to happen. Hope that mojo returns soon.

  4. Congrats on the job!!!
    And hope your mojo appears soon.

  5. I'm really glad you got the job! No inspiration from me, but how about using the same three or four colours and following the same two or three sketches throughout?

  6. Fantastic Penny. Congratulations :-) L sounds so cute ... getting her helmet :-) heehee You will have to get a pic of you and her on your bike :-) Love that pic of T too - the pose is classic! Hope you get your mojo back soon ... maybe ask Austin Powers for help (snigger)

  7. Forgot to say ... like your new banner. BEAUTIFUL!

  8. Woohooo to you re the job - excellent news!
    Thanks re the DT comments too. I will still be around though!

  9. Love the new banner. Whoo hoot on getting the job I am so excited and rapt for you!! Awesome news and well done. Another whoo hoot on cutting down on your carbon footprint and cycling to work.

  10. Congrats on the new job!! And the biking to work. You are a braver woman than me.
