Zentangles, blog candy.. and lost mojo!

What do you do when your mojo, creativity and crafting ability pops off for a holiday? Do you get out your stash and look at it endlessly hoping something will happen?... do you go out for the day for retail therapy? Do you wander off aimlessly looking for it in a cupboard or under the carpet? lol Mine seems to have gone on holiday this week with its bikini and sunglasses, and I do wish that I could be with it.. sun sea and sand...rofl!
So I did what I always do, went shopping at Bluewater Shopping Mall , bought a 70% off VERY large sketchbook, bought a gorgeous ring designed by my sister ( for HedKandi, who opened their first shop yesterday), and of course some Lush bubble bath! Did my mojo come back.. nah! not a hope! So I tried the zentangle challenge over at Lots to Do to see if that helped, it was interesting as I had never done one of these before.. It is supposed to be 3.5 inches square, and me who NEVER reads instructions made it 2.5 inch square, so there was a lot less space to fill! (weird red mark on the picture, but not on the drawing , so guessing I need to clean my scanner!) I quite liked my first attempt and there is another one being worked on, which I may show at a later date.
Thank you girls for the challenge, it certainly gave me something different to do :))
If you have lost your crafting mojo to the sun, sea and sand.. pop over to The Creative Team blog, for a chance to bring it back to life with some great goodies!

Hope you have a more creative day than me, and show me what you can do.. I LOVE comments!
Hugs
