Lost my 'mini-mojo'.

It's been a strange couple of weeks, and not many minis have been made :o(. Three weeks ago I took an impromptu break from mini-making to help my partner 'landscape' our garden, which desperately needed doing as we hadn't bothered with it since we moved in almost two years ago (we concentrated on decorating the house as it was more important). It took two weeks of very hard labour to get the garden how we wanted it to look, but now it is finished we have a garden we can sit & relax in during these glorious summer evenings. While I was helping with the garden I had a lot of ideas of what my next mini project would be & thousands of ideas were running through my mind, but now the garden is finished & I have (almost) all the time in the world again to mini-make, I seem to have lost my 'mini-mojo' & am struggling to get it back!! This is proving to be very frustrating for me, I still have a lot of ideas but cannot find the energy or inclination to actually make anything & the more I think about it, the more frustrated I become! I know that once I get my 'mini-mojo' back I will be on a roll & won't be able to make minis fast enough, but until that happens I am just going to have to be patient & make minis as & when. I did manage to make a 'busy baking day table' last weekend & that is on eBay at the moment, I was hoping this would inspire to me carry on mini-making all week, but sadly not. Oh well, I'm sure I'll get my mojo back eventually. In the meantime, here are a few pics of our new garden & the 'busy baking day table'. Enjoy.x.

I love the baking table Kerry, all that chocolate!!!!!!!!! The garden looks great, and is making me feel bad, ours is an absolute mess and desperatly needs a make over. Yours looks like something out of Groundforce, you have a great space there to fill and it will look fab when its all done. Im sure youll get your mojo back, I think alot of people are the same at the moment, me included, cant seem to get into anything in a big way. need a kick up my backside!!Must be the time of year or something. Halloween and Christmas not too far away and Im sure it wil be back in full form by those busy times. Love Kate xxx

Awwww, thanks Kate. We wanted some hanging baskets & a few big planters for the garden, but the car was on it's last legs & then the boiler died on us, so we had to fork out for a new car & boiler, & we have now run out of money (*rolls eyes*)!! The sooner I get my mojo back the better! Have a great week, mini hugs, Kerry.x.

Don't worry about it, Kerry - it's a bit like 'writer's block' it comes back, usually with a rush!
It's good to take a break, you'll make even better things when you start again!

Thanks Mags & Janice, I'm so pleased I'm not the only who goes through this, LOL. I'll be okay as long as I don't start panicking to make things & then end up making a load of rubbish just for the sake of making something. I know I'll get it back eventually, just hope it doesn't take too long to come back. In the meantime, I am taking my son to the cinema today to see 'Toy Story 3' & hopefully something in the film will trigger something in my brain & I'll be back making minis before you know it, LOL.
Have a great week,

Los jardines siempre ocupan mucho tiempo, pero despues vale la pena para disfrutarlos.
La mesa de pastel de chocolate está genial, no le falta detalle. Besos Clara
