I had a dry April: a thousand other important things that needed to be done, job-hunting and a dose of the shingles completely took away my motivation. NSD was just what I needed to get going again. I have a hundred more ideas now!

Last year I did so much for NSD that I was worn out and needed a break afterwards.

How are you all feeling after NSD? Scrapped-out or inspired for more?

Definitely revived! I haven't scrapped for months, but this got the juices going again. I have a crop this weekend and can't wait!

Ready to run!! My April was busy as well. I only did a few challenges last month but scrapped a wedding which added volume for the month (meeting the monthly goal!). I did three LOs for NSD and another yesterday. I also set one up for today...and they will fill some challenge requirements. I'm excited to scrap n have tons of inspiration!

scrapped out... after a 3 day crop with about 9 hours sleep over the 3 days (talk about extreme cropping!), I got 23 pages done and 2 cards. still haven't unpacked my stuff, nor caught up on sleep. TOTALLY worth it, but need to recover. I fear those days of pulling all-nighters are long gone.

Revived, but mostly because I'm excited to work on the mini-album challenge since I am finally using some of the mini-album files and digital paper files I keep buying for my Cameo but rarely use! It's helping me get used to the new version of the software for the Cameo too.

LOL this is interesting. I should have made it a poll, shouldn't I? I wonder whether I can add one...

(Love the new avatar Chris!)

ETA: Nope, can't add a poll. Ah well.

A little bit of both? I definitely find my zest for paper is back, and at the same time doing a 3am to 930 pm has definitely a drain I think I am still recovering a bit....

I was at a scrap retreat and it was so wonderful. Just 8 of us friends up in the mountains; no drama, no stress!! I want to get started on my mini album. Never did one before.

I was worn out from the marathon day, but it definitely revived my desire to scrapbook.

I scrapped like crazy in March and April and got 100 pages done (2 travel books). I planted flowers for NSD.

Completely revived!!! I started a new job mid last year - which was a promotion into an area that I knew very little about, with a lot more responsibility. So I've spent the last year in constant education mode, and then about five weeks ago I agreed to work on a project which was INTENSE and which we finished on Friday - YAY!!!!!!

End result - I hadn't scrapped since LAST INSD. I got four pages done on Saturday, and I've been inspired to actually do the month-long mini-album challenge. Picking up my photos tomorrow and I'm excited about completing this!

Scrapping on Saturday also required me to do some cleaning and organizing which was sorely needed, so my area looks better now, too - which is also inspiring.

Now if I could only get this sort of inspiration and focus when it comes to exercising ....

Shingles! You poor thing!

I had a lot of fun and relaxation while watching crafting videos on NSD. They certainly inspired me to keep going. This whole week, I've been in Scrappy Land to one degree or another (no chemo). I've completed two layouts, have a ton of options (paper, etc) pulled for a third, and trying to decide how many photos to print for a fourth.

I'm having so much fun, that I've even made an activity wish list for the next few months so I can keep playing with paper.

Revived and going strong! I've started 2 mini albums and spent most of today working on them. I am loving them! I am also trying to branch out a little and scrap out of my comfort zone. I wish we could have NSD about twice a month!
