Slow mojo

I've often thought that I don't want my blog to be just a repeat of my galleries. How boring would that be. Without being too personal, I'd like to share a little of myself here. Something that my blog friends may not know about me. Keep it real as it were...

I've been absent from blogging lately. Not that I don't have anything to share, but some days are just not blogging days and I've had a lot of those recently. First and foremost I would say is because I've been busy. My "work" as an English teacher has been going very well these past few months. After 2 to 3 years of losing students due to graduations and busy schedules (ok I guess I should admit that MAYBE one or two who quit my classes just really didn't like learning English from me....), these past two months have brought many new students. One the one hand this is awesome for me. That's how I make my living in the real world. On the other hand, in order to get new students I have had to add an entire new day to my work week. I am now working 4 days a week. I have no idea how my friends who work full-time in office jobs find time for scrapping too. Work, cleaning, cooking, teaching, running children to their activities... by the end of the day I am exhausted and just want to veg out. My mojo has taken a major hit.

The second reason why I have been absent from blogging and scrapping is that I do have some bad emo days when I just feel lost to the world. Instead of writing it all out here, I'll just upload the double-page layout that I made in hopes of getting some art therapy. Things are getting better, slowly, but there are just times when I want to stay home and stay in bed.



Well, since I did enjoy making these other layouts as well I will share them here on my blog as well. If you want to read the journaling on them, just remember they can all be found in my galleries.








I do still love scrapping and there is no way I will give it up. My mojo is just slow right now. As always, thank you so much for stopping by my little corner of the web here. Please come again soon.

I seriously could not pick a favorite from these pages if I had to--they're all so gorgeous! I agree you will most likely feel better gradually until one day you look back and don't remember how long it's been. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers, Holly!
