APOLOGIES

... I have gone rather a long time, even from my own blog. I can't offer any explanations except I am having a relapse. I can't relate to the bold and bright colors that I used to scrap with, everything is in black. I am suddenly dark.

This is the last layout that I have done last month. This is created with Scrap That!'s June Kit.
I'm sorry, I hope I can get back to you all in due time... for now, I can't say much. I am not really a practitioner, but I do believe in prayers. I ask you send them my way.

Thanks everyone.

Hi Janis ... I have you on my Google Reader so I can "STALK" you when you update your Blog .... tee hee ...

I feel your pain, Sister - I am also just "not feeling it" - have been, for a while - when I am forced to create because of deadlines, I produce acceptable work but am not "feeling it" ...

Sigh ... Prayers for us both - we'll get back on the wagon ...

Embrace the darkness for a little with a view to anticipating the light and it will come ... been there ...

BTW, I think your creations are ALWAYS awesome and I often look to your work for inspiration if I am in a MOJO-RUT!!

Hang in there!!

Love, Tracy G

I hope everything is ok and your relapse is temporary...the scrapping world needs you...hugs:) was wondering why I havent seen any new los from you on fb so I checked your blog...

What a shame that so you have lost either your passion or some called it mojo to feel the need to scrap. Hope it comes back soon for you.

Prayers sent to you, I know exactly what you mean by everything has gone to black. Last Feb. My husband was diagnosed with cancer. I have tried to take my mind off from everything by trying to work on a few layouts, but everything just looks different. I am surrounded by so many feelings... Nothing will be right and filled with color until he is well, he is currently on his second round of chemotherapy. So, I will add you to my prayers ... Please add him in yours as well... I do think prayers work... Best wishes for you to go into remision very soon again... Oh, I did want to tell you the page is lovely, you use of color is so beautiful...

Sherry said...

so sorry your feeling down and out... take this from someone who knows exactly how you feel. I have had my share, usually I too just back away from everything and don't even look at my scrapbook things. I hope you can get your chin back up and try and give a good smile and try to find something to laugh about and have a good laugh daily. But YES I know thats not easy!! I hope you start to feel better Soon..
