Help!! Help!!

where, oh, where has my creativity gone???? Seems like I sit at my desk for hours not making a thing and then I just get mad and walk away. I think it's partly to do with the fact that I'm still waiting for my scrap room to get finished so nothing is organized right now. And if I can't get to it, then I can't use it!! Wish I could have some kind of spark though--sure could use a boost!!

We've had some crazy couple weeks around here. I had the flu for a couple days--can't really complain since it's been a LONG time since I've been sick. Then we headed out of town for a family reunion, which was great, until we came home. About 20 min. away from our exit to Idaho Falls, we had a tire blow out. Then Brandon couldn't get the spare out. two hours later... a police man, a tow truck and another generous stranger couldn't get it out either. Something is faulty with the spare. A lot of people with the same van are complaining about the same thing. The guy at the shop said all of our tires were about to blow so we had to replace them all. not a HUGE fan of paying $800 for tow and tires at the drop of a hat. At least we were safe and we're home now. (oh, and then yesterday on of our tires went flat. how fun... another trip to the shop!!)

As I mentioned in the last post, Hero Arts is doing some crazy cool stuff this week on the blog. They completely changed the website and it looks great!! I was able to lift a project from the website and I chose a card from the fabulous Tami Hartley. She is soooo good at making cards! I drool over everything she makes! Here's my take on one of her creations.

HUGS HUGS HUGS to you all! Feels like I've been away for quite a while!!

So sorry about your tires! I had the same thing happen to me, but I drive a very small car so it wasn't as bad.

Hope you can find your mojo over the weekend! This card is adorable.

Yucko on the tire situation. That's a total pain! :( I can say nothing on the mojo thing. I don't think I'm feeling so hot. I've been in bed all day and it's a gorgeous Saturday. I NEVER do that. Can hardly keep my eyes open--let along my creative going. (Although I did pop over here for some inspiration--and that always works)

Well, you may drool over Tami's cards but I am drooling over that card BIG TIME!! Wow, it's beautiful Kandis!

I feel your pain about the tires. Our Tahoe had to have two of them replaced about a month back after I come out of Target with a LOAD of groceries and my two kids and no husband in site. Like you, thank God for generous strangers. Then not even two weeks later the back tire is flat in our garage right before I have to take my son to school, again no husband and two kids. Praise God it all worked out. And yep, the $$$ are not fun to spend but I feel much safer now knowing that one will not blow somewhere else. Glad you all are safe!!!!

Ya right, I'm not buying it. You are the most creative person I know. Why don't you just go and make a wedding cake or something? Haha, cute card!
