What to do...

when you are creatively stuck? Well, we (Ivonne and myself) get on the phone to talk about it and the "motivator" cheers the "not so motivated one" and gets her going. But, what happens when it's both of us? That's when it gets tough. This was a first for us, especially with Ivonne having health issues. That's when we heard about Midweek Magnolias having their very first challenge. I forwarded the email to Ivonne and asked her if she was up to participate in this challenge. And guess what? She said yes and that got us back on track again. I am so blessed to have a friend/sister in my life like her. She picks me up when I am down and keeps me grounded. Thanks, Ivonne!!!

  1. Oh Wow, what a brilliant idea to have a phone buddy to keep you motivated! You two are so lucky to have each other! I love your card Kathya and the colours are just fab! Only last night I was asked to create something in bright turquoise and shocking pink to coordinate a little girl's room and although it's not shocking pink, your colour scheme has really inspired me! Thank you so much for sharing it with us at Midweek Magnolias! :o) xx
