When I was off on my extended stamping break, chasing the lost mojo, one of the most consistent pieces of advice I consistently ignored was to join in with challenges. I'm not sure why I felt it wouldn't be right for me - I couldn't see how more pressure to create and more deadlines to meet would equal more enjoyment. But doing nothing wasn't helping, so I dipped my toe in the water with the Saturated Canary challenges and this week, feeling particularly brave and daring, I am combining it with the Sketch Saturday challenge. And now I get it, I think - now I see why challenges can help spark the old missing mojo. I really enjoyed combining these - coming up with ways of using twine and having the comfort of a sketch as a guide.
So all these other stampers were right and I was wrong - who'd have thunk it?
