  1. I took a 5 month break from scrapping. I have a baby in the house (and 3 other children), my room was a mess, for some reason I thought 6 months without shopping would be good for me (I bought books and knitting supplies in it's place, so it didn't help the budget!) and my scrapbook room was upstairs away from everyone (or they were all crammed in my tiny room with me). I have since moved into the main part of the house, resumed shopping, the baby isn't as needy and I found this awesome podcast... the scrapping continues. Maybe you need to listen to this motivational podcast I recently found it's called the scrapgals...ha ha ha.

    1. ROFL! I got tired just reading that. Whew!!! I may have to read that on our next taping of the podcast. I do actually listen to some other podcasts as I clean. "Elise Gets Crafty" makes me wanna do more creatively for sure! Thanks so much for listening! I hope we continue to inspire you!

  2. I might not always comment, but I do check both your blogs every day now. You do have followers! :) I also wanted to say that my kids are both in their mid-twenties, and I still scrapbook some things they do. I know they are not scrapbooking, and if I get pictures I want a record of they go in my scrapbook same as when they were smaller. I'm working on a page right now of when my daughter went skydiving. I wasn't there, thank goodness, but I will journal from my perspective on how this activity shows her personality. Thank you both for the inspiration in you podcasts and on your blogs--love it!!!!

    1. Thank you Robin! You really will never know how much it means to us that you check our blogs and that you told us that because sometimes we wonder! I laughed out loud when you said you weren't there for the skydiving, thank goodness! Thanks for listening!!!!

  3. I have to say you two are absolutely awesome. I found your podcast on a paperclipping forum and drive two hours a day. Let's just say you two are now my new best friends because that is all that I have heard all week. So, I would like to recommend you watch this You Tube from the fabulous Dina Wakely. It is how to jump start your mojo

  4. Tracie - so sorry to hear about your friend. That is a tough blow, and like you said, especially when it's someone your own age. When I lost my mom, I didn't feel like touching or thinking about anything crafty for several months. It will come back. And it sounds like you worked through a particular roadblock you didn't even know you were having, so that's hopeful!

    I know you said you're probably not one to go for challenges, but some of your listeners may be, so I wanted to share a guest post I wrote for Melissa Shanhun's blog that's a roundup of five scrappy challenge blogs I visit to get fresh inspiration when I need it. Hope it's okay to post here: http://www.digitalscrapbookinghq.com/go-mojo-runs-low/

    In the end, this hobby's supposed to be fun, and when it isn't, it's totally okay to step back for a little while. You usually come right back to it like an old friend, ready to pick up where you left off. :)

  5. Loved listening to the two of you. Tracie, sorry about your friend. Hope you get your mojo back.

    I'm in the middle of painting a large basement of a 1904 farm house. It's a long and tiresome process. I listened to your first several episodes as they came out, but since I don't do project life in the traditional sense, I put off listening with that episode because I had other things going on. Planned to come back to it and get your next episodes, but well life got in the way. So today, before I started, I downloaded the latest episode. I'm on break now and am downloading all the ones I've missed. It makes the painting go more quickly for sure. My daughter asked what I was doing down there as she heard me laughing. I love that you both are still passionate and "out there" -learning, talking, etc. I can't wait to get back to painting and listen to the rest.

  6. tracie, I just listened to this podcast and now have listened to all of them... I thought you mentioned that you were going to post your Disney 62 page album on your blog or scrapbook.com? The same one that you had on two peas? I have searched everywhere and can't find it anywhere... Can you help? Thx. PS. I love you guys!

  7. "It gives me more than it takes." That might be my favorite line from a podcast, ever. It's so true for me as a scrapper.

    As you can see, my binge-listening has gotten me to Episode 24. I am so glad I found you guys! I'm sorry for not commenting more - I'm just so eager to get caught up with real time. It feels a bit strange commenting about something that was old news a year ago!
