WOYWW....95.....Not my Mojo thats for sure

Good morning Gosh where does the time go?Nearly into April and not yet started my Easter creations.Thats because my mojo isnt back to it's self if at all...lol.So if you fancy snooping around at eveyone elses desks see what there mojo has been upto .then pop along to the boss and visit her and join in over at the Stamping Ground .

Well i did my best getting round most of you last week wether through comments as mr linky went AWOL for while so may have commented twice on a couple.Thanks for all the kind messages.

Well since last week nothing much happened in the craftroom mojo hasnt returned to me .I did create the front cover for my CJ Circle Journal......to those who dont know this is a journal you do a two page spread ours was a 6x6 album. Once youve done your 2 pages you have time scale .You then post on to next person i think there were 8 people in our group and 7months down the line you get it back.Well after the big clear out i had i found it coverless since i had it returned in 2008.So i have messed about abit each day doing the front cover took me 5days!!!usually have stack stuff done in that time but hey hoe im sure it will return when it's ready.Doesnt help when ive lost use my left arm!

So first of all im going to show you my CJ cover if you want to see more it's Here

Now this is my messy desk this wednesday morning.

I have various things out im trying anything and everything to get my mojo back.

I have 3 tags to make for April swap so had ago at those yesterday gave up went away will return this morning to see how i get on.

On the left of the above piccy is my otherside of my desk again some T/Holtz stamps out .

Distress inks ,card i inked sometime ago.Plus an image ready to do something with. This piccy isto the right of my desk yes the push everything to the rightside .Here we have some wee books im altering well started before my mojo went,altered match box needs finishing. A frame ready to gesso if i cant do anything else i can always cover that! So not much going on a variety of stuff to try and get my mojo working.I have even tried colouring images in as sometimes that works...nope. I think with the pain and heaviness in my left arm ,i just find it hard to do much and there fore mojo gone!Still i may get inspired when i pop by and visit you all this morning and it may just return....fingers crossed. Just last reminder my Mega Tim Holtz candy ends 31st so only couple days to enter if you havent already then pop by HERE.The winner or maybe winners will be announced on 1st April;...April fools day ummmm........ Anyway have creative wednesday Love n hugs

Sounds to me like your mojo is working fine! Look at all you are doing. :-) I hope your arm feels better soon Jude. Happy WOYWW #26

peggy aplSEEDS said...

i hope you get better soon. it's hard to be creative with your arm not feeling right, isn't it? but you have done quite well with your journal cover. no one would know you've lost your mojo! gesso and some collaging and stamping for backgrounds is what i do when i'm wondering what to do next.

Marjo said...

Hi Hun - was hoping things were settling at your end. How's daughter #2?
Hope your arm is soon feeling much better and you get the use of it back. Not that it has stopped you doing an absolutely gorgeous CJ cover. Love the richness of it - what a smashing job you have made of it.
Thanks for sharing your busy busy desk.

JoZart said...

I can tell you now that your mojo hasn't been seen around here or I'd have kept it! It's amazing nonetheless how you are coping and still so cheerful! Well done you!
I'll post details later of marbling eggs for you and a few others who have asked. thanks for your comments,
Love JoZarty x

Cauliflower Cupcake said...

It doesn't really look or sound like your mojo has done a run for it. The cover for the CJ journal looks fab, so what if it took 5 days - it's great. I'd love to take part in one of those.
Happy WOYWW

That first photo made me chuckle.

voodoo vixen said...

Love that CJ cover, its a stunner!! I have never had a chance to do a CJ... keep uprooting myself and its not good to lose someone's CJ but one day when I am in one place for long enough I will do one!! Annette #11

Mrs A. said...

Well I think you should lock Mojo in the cupboard and throw away the key cos you are obviously doing ok without. That journal cover is just gorgeous. Love the tag with the bird cage too. Hugs Mrs A. #16

JoZart said...

I've added the marbling post!

Elizabeth said...

Hi Jude, it looks to me that your mojo is still there but maybe on a 'go slow' and considering you've got an injured arm that's not so bad. Love your CJ book cover, the flower is just beautiful and the colours are lovely. Have a good day and try not to stress over that mojo of yours. Elizabeth x #96

Kezzy said...

Its a horrible feeling when mojo leaves especially when we try so hard to get him back, but he will come back hopefully full of inspiration. When mine goes i find blogging or sorting my craft bits helps it to pop back, hope he comes back soon. I hope you start feeling better soon how awful it must feel. X

The Crafty Elf said...

The more you fret about your mojo the worse it will be. Your mojo is just taking a little vacation and it will be back soon with a vengence. Your desk will be there waiting ready to go when it does. Enjoy the holiday!

Scrapcollectr said...

Go window shopping...even it's only blogs, look at an old magazine...follow a link on someone's blog that looks interesting...your muse will be curious after one of these things, I'm sure! God luck and sorry about your arm!

Clare /aka/ Mummushka said...

Your Mojo is working just perfectly from where I'm standing...err... sitting. Thanks for sharing your beautiful CJ.

Gez said...

Hi Jude..I love your desk..you look quite busy from here! Love your CJ cover & your tags are coming along nicely :)

Don't worry about your mojo he is playing games. I think a bit of crafty retail therapy might just be the ticket ;)

Hope you can get some restbite from the pain I know how draining it came be..sending you gentle cyber ((hugs))xx

karen said...

Your CJ cover is beautiful, so Mojo must be lurking around but maybe is just wanting you to take it easy. Sorry to hear that you still have not recovered use of your arm, do you still have to wait until May for your appointment? Maybe Mr Mojo is a doctor and that is why he is so hard to track down!
(((hugs))) to you and be good to yourself!
xoxo Karen

Starla said...

I think I've discovered where all the MoJo's are hiding out....they must have spring fever and so have decided to take Spring Break.

Wonder how long Spring Break will last....I'm kinda in need of my MoJo ASAP! Star 117

Poor Jude, your arm sounds really sore. Take a break..don't look for your mojo, just let it return - go do something else for a while..works for me - even if it's sleeping in front of the tv!
