my craft mojo.

So I've kind of lost my mojo. Well, maybe mojo isn't the right word, maybe just my will power. I think my vacation kind of got me out of the groove. So after I finished my invitations, there hasn't been any crafting around here.

What there has been more of is yard work and decorating. Here were my latest projects.

Chase thinks I'm crazy, but I walk through my garage door way more than my front door. So I wanted to make my door and trim look just as good as the rest of the house.

Before:
After (trim and door painted):I still need to do something to the steps, but that will have to come later. My sweet husband Chase hung my new dining room light that has been on back order forever!
Hopefully the crafting craze will come back soon.

Girl, everytime I'm away from the craftroom for any span of time, I get out of sync. You'll get back in the groove :)

I love seeing your home decor projects. Thanks for sharing

They both look great! You should see if Alan has some left over carpet that you can put on your steps... or... if you have any left over from your house. That is what we did anyway!

Hey, sometimes you just need a break from crafting, you know? I'm sure when the mood strikes you'll be back and better than ever!

Your house looks like it is out of a magazine! Want to come decorate mine? :o)

The door looks great, it makes a big difference (not that it was bad before)! Love the new light too! You'll get back in the groove, I think we all go through that! :)

I lover seeing your home decor projects! You house looks so great! It helps me in dreaming of owning a home own day. I am not sure if that will ever happen in LA though! Our housing prices are not dropping at all!

You'll get your craft magic back soon! Sometimes taking a little break is good. Then you will come back, and make things even more fabulous (if that's possible!) :)

because you are already so fabulous to begin with!

I LOVE the plates on your wall! I have a huge empty wall in our dining room I have yet to do anything with. I just have some Uppercase Living on it. But this would be great to put above it!


Also, you can use uppercase living for your black door if you haven't found anything to put on it yet.

Not to plug myself - but you can see it at my website - jill.uppercaseliving.net
