The return of my mojo!

So it's been forever since I have posted.  When the preparations for the holidays started to roll around, I lost any bit of mojo I had.  This was the first Thanksgiving/Christmas without my mom, and it took all I had to keep moving forward for the sake of my family.  The last few months are a blur as I tried to tread water and keep it together.  I did make it through  both holidays, but it was definitely tough!

Yesterday I sat at my desk and slowly started cleaning the mess that had accumulated there.  As I slowly organized and purged, I felt a twinge of creativity.  "Baby steps" I said to myself, so I decided to color.

What better image is there to color than an Art Impressions stamp?  I had this Birthday Hat image lying around that I bought months ago, but hadn't played with.  So I took it out, stamped it with my memento ink, took out my Spectrum Noir markers and started coloring.  I could feel the tenseness leave my body as I actually started to enjoy the process.  I kept the card itself simple, but the time this one was completed, I had another card planned in my head.  Let's hope my mojo is here to stay!
