Hello Crafters! How was your weekend?
It was sixty degrees in January for two days straight. I feel like I won the lottery. It is going to go back to the lovely frigid snowy Ohio I know, but man what a great weekend!
Speaking of cold weather, this time of year I seem to struggle with my mojo pretty regularly. Anyone else have this problem? I don't know what it is, but January and February just sap my creativity. I can't live without my favorite hobby though, so I've come up with a few tips to help myself out.
First things first - use things you love. I make a little mental check list and then get to work. My go tos are one layer, brightly colored, floral cards. I like to try new techniques to mix it up some too. It usually takes me a bit longer to create something I love when it's different but it's almost always worth it.
For today's card I wanted a really bright loose watercolor background. Something fun and relaxing, no stress. :) You can see how I approached my stress free florals in the video below.

I really love how easy this was to create. It didn't take a ton of time or planning, and I still ended up with a card I love. Isn't it nice when it works out like that?
hat are some of your favorite ways to break out of a slump? Let's help each other out huh?
Thanks so much for stopping by!
