Serious loss of mojo

What a bad blogger I have been. I've been an even worse crafter. Not sure why but my work -life balance has gotten seriously out of kilter.
I named my blog 'Live Laugh Love' because I have a real longing to Live life passionately; Laugh loud and often and Love unconditionally, something that has got away from me over the last 4-6 weeks - I have been doing really long hours at work and in the time remaining have been spending with my kids (trying to over-ride that single parent/working mother guilt!).

Anyway since tomorrow is the start of a new month I am setting myself a challenge to do something creative everyday during the month of May and post it on my blog. Hopefully after a month of this I will be back in touch with my mojo - which has up and left me again!

So if anyone reads this (Hello out there!) please stop by again and give me some encouragement :). If you have a favourite blog, website, book etc that inspires you please leave me a comment - just incase I am in need of inspiration during my month long challenge!

Lazy week

I've had a week off work as it is the school holidays. I had great intentions of getting lots of crafting done but haven't really achieved much :( I have, however, enjoyed hanging out with my fab 10 year old! Today we rearranged the furniture in the lounge - phew! Looks good though, treated ourselves to afternoon tea after all that effort.

I have done some blog-hopping this week. Found this blog - fabulous work and blog candy as well! Visit Lim - you'll like her work.

I am in the process of adding some more blogs to my list - hopefully by the end of the weekend.

Latest box

My sisters birthday was last week and I made her this box - it has photos of her children when they were little. The verse in the centre is one of my favourites

"A baby is something you carry inside you for nine months;
in your arms for three years; and in your heart
till the day you die."

I made the card to match. It is going in the mail today - hope she likes it.

I'm back

My laptop has been in for repair - I didn't realise how dependent I was on the internet until I had to do without it for a week. My blog has suffered and I can't even say I've been very creative in the downtime as no internet seemed to coincide with a temporary decline in mojo! Strange!
I was very lucky to receive some interesting mail in the last week though. First surprise to arrive in the mail was this lovely ATC from Silvercustard on the Crafts Beautiful forum.

Then I received this beautiful card from the CB forum card swap along with the lovely RAK - papers, card blanks etc . These are from Glitzzy

Next was this 6x6 page from FairyPrincess along with the ATC. The page is for a swap at CB again. Really gorgeous.

My pages (which were my first ever scrapbook pages) went to Scrappysteph and Fairyprincess.
