Creative January 2012

So we are in the new house, but there is not a lot of space. Still many people make do with less, so I will cease and desist with the complaining. To kick start my creativity, I have subscribed to a Blog created by a lady named Nathalie Kalbach called Creative Jumpstart Summit 2012. Basically, she has organized Scrapbookers and artists from around the world to give a short tutorial on how they get their creativity and keep it.. how to start when you are stuck. It has been fantastic, as I get an email every evening linking me to a site where a different artist talks or gives a tutorial. I love it. I have started a creative journal after this and I have had a go at so many new techniques that I will definitely be incorporating into my scrapping. Even my daughter Brooke has been getting into it with me.
 a LO about my collection of watches. Only a few of them are shown here but it was from old photos that i cut up.
A LO usinbg chipboard, perfect pearls, Stickles and Photobooth pics We took ages ago and I never knew what to do with.

Recycled materials challenge. Stamping on plastic sheet (what my Scrapbooking paper got put into after i bought it at the shop) and the back of some Prima Bling card. i was quite happy with this one.

LO about 2012. resolutions and expectations from myself
Another ning site I have been following is scrapbookinghaven.ning.com. It is a great little online shop but also has a group you can join, where they do weekly and monthly challenges so you can get motivated. I have uploaded my projects here so people can have a look. What can it hurt right?? plus.. if you upload your entry every week by the deadline, you go into the draw to win a voucher to spend at the store. Never been one to scoff at freebies and prizes, so this has motivated me as well.
