Finding my Photo Mojo

I have to admit that I had lost my photo mojo. I used to love taking pictures.
I have a great camera, and a husband who likes the latest and greatest equipment.
So I really don't know what my excuse is.
I have been thinking about this a lot lately cause I want to take photos to send to my new friend in Ireland. So I am attempting to find my photo mojo again. Today was my first time dragging the 'big' camera out and shooting everything. Man that bag is heavy... I think I know why I decided to not haul it around. The kids and I went to the local Science Centre in town and these are a few of the shots. Click the photos to see a larger one. Enjoy!

Next up..... I have signed up for a special photo event at the Zoo!
We are allowed in early and without crowds, so that should be fun.
Will post more along my mojo finding journey.

The Aftermath

The Aftermath
And finally birthday parties are done for another year. Whew!
Such stress I put myself through.
Big plans, Big ideas...Big Stress
I always make things harder for myself.
I have a long list of things that I tell myself I need to get done and then freak out 
at the last minute when I can't get it all done.
Please tell me I am not alone.
Half the battle I find is getting the house neat for guests. 
I am a lousy housekeeper.
There, I admit it.
And a perfectionist to boot...what a bad combo.

Todays tea party went off pretty well. My daughter was happy and her friends seem to have enjoyed themselves. We had four of my daughters friends over today. Various ages and personalities, an interesting mix indeed.
I am now sitting back enjoying a glass of wine and smiling cause I know 
I don't have to think about another till next year.

My creativity is at a standstill.
I have been trying to get my etsy store moving along again. It started out well last time, then slowed. I just can't get my creative juices working. I have noticed too that |I haven't been taking as many photos as usual.
What to do!
How do you get your creative juices flowing?
Anyone else in a slump?

Tuesday Tune In: Rival Sons

Ok, so... I just came across these guys today.
Crazy right?
I was looking around to find another music video to share with you all, and found this one instead.
I like their sound, and the look. Kinda remind me of someone.
Let me know what you think.
