After sharing my WITL project , I felt really drained and feel as though I have lost my MOJO. So I went on a scrapbook hiatus for 2 months, only sharing , not really scrapbooking. My plan was to finish up my Midori for my second Adelaide trip and catch up on PL for Oct and Nov respectively. However, I have yet to touch on either one. I wanted to start but I just couldn't bring myself together to do so. Looking around my scrap space, everything is everywhere and I have not purge for 1 year. I guess I need to start somewhere, so I went into the storeroom and post everything online for sale. It's slow but at least I started. The next step I need to take is to go through each of my 25 square (of the "Scrapbook Ikea cabinet" ) and choose stuff to giveaway / sell / throw . PURGE PURGE PURGE. I need to everything to be organised to feel inspired. Right now there is just too much clutter.
While cleaning, I listened to 2 podcasts on the topic of getting back my MOJO
1. Scrapgal Episode 24: The Mojo Show
2. Paperclipping roundtable PRT136 – Normal to Get the Blah’s
These helps quite alot.
Then of course I didn't stop there, so I went onto listen to the older PRT episodes. I chose those I thought will be inspiring to me. There are the ones I saved to a playlist and plan to listen to while cleaning :)
- PRT 141 Like Eating Chocolate for the First Time
- PRT142 Or the Flow Don't Go
- PRT 150 Crackers in Their Soup
- PRT 152 Beyond Simple
- PRT 153 Not an Anti- Chronologist
- PRT 164 Eight Years Lost ** Super inspiring story **
Other than clearing out stuff, I started looking online for Inspiration for Midori. I saw Stephanie Baxter class on BPC and went through that. Her great style of typewritter journaling on Midori notebook is just gorgeous. I'm going to try that.
My final idea to get is to actually scraplift myself. Previously I had used several Midori to document my travels. I thought I had already shared the post but some of them are still in the draft section. I'm going to post them and to collate some midori inspiration and scraplift from there as a start. Hopefully I will get my MOJO back!
