      When you are scrapping and your mojo is lacking or you just need a jump start who or what do you look to for inspiration? Do you have favorite blogs, movies, music, sketches or websites you go to, if so please share.

        If I don't have anything that has to be done such as DT work, I grab some G45 and I always can find some inspiration there. Otherwise I just push thru it. I don't spend much time looking at blogs etc. Most of the time I have music on and play a variety, new age, country, celtic, rock and folk. I find new age very soothing and when I'm in a crappy mood I will usually listen to new age as it tends to sooth my soul.

Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

          Depending on my mood I have several different things.

          Normally when I'm scrapping I have movies going in the background. My favorite scrapping movies are: The Devil wears Prada (great inspiration with the fashion), Top Gun, Transformers.

          When I need something to jump start my mojo, I like surf Pinterest for sketches.

            I usually pull out some old sketches and give them a new flair. Or just go thru my layouts and try to scraplift myself but change it up a bit. This is probably why I feel all my pages look the same….lol!!!

            I find inspiration everywhere =)….. Things I see around me, things people around me say, photos, music, art my dreams…

            But if my mojo is gone.. and I have to push myself I usually scroll through galleries and blogs. Look for a sketch or a color combo that I like…. somtimes even clenaing up my scrappy space gets my mojo going ;)

                I scraplift myself too. LOL! sometimes I just really like a design and want to do it again with new stuff. It doesn't always look like a lift, but I really just go for ideas.

                I love to surf for digital scrap pages and see if I could really make that work with scrappy supplies. 

                And, I LOVE sketches.

                        Obviously here is a major source of inspo! Looking through the gallery is an adventure in mojo boosting. Do I need to say PINTEREST!?! That place is a time sucking vortex 🙂 You go on and the next thing you know it's tomorrow !lol But seriously, I find lo's, sketches, colors, titles, joualing prompts you name it! Scrapbook.com too.

                        I have favorite peeps too. Di Garling takes the cake for me, and the fact that she has just started her own Youtube made me do the happy dance! Love her !heart Gabrielle Pollacco is another major inspo boost. I love what she does. Lisa Gregory always gives me great ideas. Her work is stellar!

                          Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm…….
                          I go through the Swirly DT blogs a lot, and I scroll through Facebook daily and I know that some of that has to stick!!!
                          Mostly, I go through my photos and pick the ones that seem to say Use me!!!! I'm perfect for these papers and embellies!
                          And I get a lot of mojo thanks to Jan and her sister with their Challenge page.

                          Oh man, Di is like taking over my scrappy brain!! I am obsessed with her layouts!

                          I am not sure, I do like Pinterest for color boards and mood boards.

                          I do browse Paper People for good ideas.
