Has anyone seen my Mojo? - WOYWW #204

Seeing as I missed you all last week I thought I would stop by and say hello to all my lovely friends from WOYWW and to anyone else who might just happen to stumble across my blog. And what a beautiful morning for a get together……’s warm and the sun is shining……at last!

So, you’re obviously here to see what’s on my desk today and I think the title of my blog post must have already given you an inkling that there’s not very much.

I know we all lose our mojo at one point or another, but I’ve had no enthusiasm to paper craft for months now, so I’m beginning to think that my own mojo is on a gap year!

Strangly, I was looking back over some of my blog posts a couple of days ago and I realized that it was about this time last year I was going through the same thing, so maybe there’s something underlying that’s stopping me, who knows.

What I do know thought is that there are things that I really should be making an effort to finish, like the collection of cards I started making for Jan in return for the beautiful knitting needle case she very kindly made me….you will get them at some point, honest Jan and my nephew’s birthday card which I’m ashamed to say that I actually went out and brought.…….not done that for more than ten years, so I’m sitting here, hanging my head in shame.

Anyway, here’s the picture of my table.

The beads from the week before last are still there although there are some finished results that you can see   HERE.

The few cards that I have managed to complete for Jan are still sitting there and there are also a few cross stitched squares for the Stitches of Love and Kindness charity, which are waiting to go in the post and that’s about it really.

What I have managed to do over the last few week is work on some ATC’s for the swap. Mojo can cope with them because the design is sorted and I don’t need to think too hard about what I’m doing.
They are proving to be a little time consuming though ( all will become clear when you see them) so can I ask, if you would like to swap with me on the anniversary, let me know now and then I can get enough made to go in the post straight away, otherwise you may have to wait a week or two for swap to arrive.

So that’s it from me for another week.

If you haven’t already added your desk to the Mr. Linky list over at The Stamping Ground for   What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday,  then follow the link and join in.

Happy Crafting!

Oooh can't wait to see your ATC's. I'm sure they'll be so pretty. Please make me one. I've made some extras, too, so if you'd like one please give me a shout-out! :)

I am so sad for you that you are unable to do card crafting because Mr Mojo has buggered off.
I wish there was something I could do to help, lets hope that by doing the blog hop you can get some inspiration.
I would love to do an ATC swop with you if you are ok with that?
Happy WOYWW enjoy the rest of your week and I hope you get plenty of crafting time

I bet mojo will return when the sun shines and we get better weather! I would love to swap ATCs with you Sue. Your design last year was stunning. x Jo

Sorry I'm so late in calling by this week but I've been having fun all day with my little twinny munchkins and blogging didn't get a look in :-)
Don't beat yourself up about buying a card cos I think we all do that from time to time....I know I do :-)

Hi Sue
Isn't it funny how Mr Mojo goes missing. I reckon the nice weather makes you think of other things to do, that's my excuse anyway. The garden is calling very loudly and my craft room has gone quiet too!! I wouldn't beat yourself up too much about buying cards, we all do it!!
I'd love to swap atc's with you. I must get my skates on and get some done.
Hugs Lisax

Don't be ashamed of buying a card. Hubby's 50th is tomorrow and I bought him a card. I feel a little bad about it but guy cards are tough and I just had no idea what to do.

Happy creating and happy woyww!

Oh Sue, I don't care about the cards...... Just look after yourself and only do what you want to :). I'm having tough time with my elderly dad etc so I'm not in the best place either... Lets just send each other big hugs eh??
