      Well it just got real here - 48 hours and it’s a minimum of a month in lockdown in New Zealand.

      Light at the end of the tunnel for this fever I’ve had for 4 days now. Feeling the best I have in days.

      Made a decision I kind of knew deep down was the right one. It just isn’t the right time and too many variables for it to be worth it

        @bellbird yes, the big one I’ve been watching very closely is self isolation measures for both NZ and Australia as I may be traveling in 4-6 weeks.

      So over having to replace lightning cables - this one has lasted about 2 months and I’m not rough on them either.
      1. bellbird
        bellbird
        that makes me feel like i have been going off at the kids for no reason, replacing them frequently is such a pain and $$$ - i still have an ipod touch 2nd gen with the old 30 pin cable, i replaced that cable for the first time last mth & that's the only time since i bought it - the lightning ones, it feels like every 2-3 months - not sure they are so 'new & improved'

        Exactly - I find the only ones that last longer (they still die in the end) are braided or metal ones. I didn’t get it last time and wish I did now.

      Feel like im not able to be creative without templates but can't find a template that suits either so its a tough day right now

        Create a rough sketch and scrap over it. I generally start with a photo and build off of that. Or start with text and build around that. Take a template in your stash and get rid of layers that will not work for your page so you have a building block.

        Pagemaps have a lot of lovely sketches, I use them a lot when I'm looking for layout ideas and don't have a suitable template. Put the sketch on a low layer, and "trace" it with your scrapbooking supplies. Then delete the sketch layer.

        oh course... the challenges are to get the mojo flowing for scraping.. never quit.. even if you don't finish, you are scrapping and stretching your creative self. Just create!!! And you can catch up :)

        I am! I am on Day 5 of 17 and I am just going to keep going at my own pace. I am honestly not sure if I will finish this year, and that is ok. I have already had a blast doing the challenges I have done, and I will keep having fun doing more.

      thats now two layouts I've started and then binned halfway through - trying to get back in the swing creatively is harder than I thought

        @Angela Toucan thanks for the offer but I’ve saved neither of them so would have to start again. One I was reasonably happy with until the kit I was using didn’t have leaves so I gave up on that idea. The other one I’m not sure what wasn’t working cause I usually love simple templates.

        Jennifer, I know you tend to be a one-kit scrapper, but MOC is about pushing ourselves. Perhaps next time you can pull from another kit if you need leaves? If you want a similar style/cohesive look, stick with the same designer or try BYOC items (same colors). No matter what, keep going! You'll get back in the groove!

        @Tree City I’m usually more of a pick from anywhere scrapper but wanted to limit myself a bit so I didn’t have so many choices and get overwhelmed

      Too many distractions at home to scrap at the moment so looks like I’ll be a week behind. Luckily family are back to work next Wednesday

        @Angela Toucan I’m hoping I can, I just know that once I’m a few days behind the chances of keeping up are low. I’m already busy for a whole day mid month and that’s with no job interviews or travel lined up yet so who knows - won’t know that til next week most likely
