Do you ever feel blah? Even though stamping & coloring is my absolute passion, sometimes I get burnt out. Or something feels off. I don't know how to explain it? It usually happens after I've been designing and creating for something specific, a deadline or such, and once that has come and gone, the project is completed, I feel.....anticlimactic, perhaps? LOL, whatever it is, I needed to get into my stamp room and create something for fun, for no good reason, just because. So, I decided to dig out some stamps that I haven't been reaching for lately and those are my Unity Stamps. I LOVE Unity Stamp Co!! I think I first heard about them just after my son was born last year. And they were AH-mazing! LOVE them and the people of Unity. So, I dug thru my Unity and looked for a fun challenge and found something to kick start me back into creative gear. 

Here it is:

I found the Unity Challenge - HELLO! Where have I been? It's a monthly challenge and there are actually TWO! One for any unity stamps and one specifically for KOTM stamps! How cool! I think I'm going to try my hand at the KOTM challenge next. :D I used two different stamp sets on my card - one was a store kit from last year which had all kinds of school things/sayings. The other is an itty bitty cosmo cricket co brand. I think they fit well together on my card as I embark on our homeschooling adventure, school days for us are full of inspiration, creating and imagination! I am LOVING it. 

And, now, I feel better! I think I'm ready to get a little more stamping done - but FIRST I'm going to go chill and watch 27 Dresses which was recommended by SEVERAL girlfriends as a MUST have chick flick! I've seen it before but it's been awhile. With the rain falling, and temperatures dipping in the 50s, I'm going to go see if there is any hot chocolate to warm me up tonight! 

Thanks for stopping by!
