Woyww 104....

Good morning Woywwers ....Hope your all well and enjoying this glorious weather.well had lovely week last week up at dads the weather was a scorcher and we went visiting the Dales!.Sorry if i didnt get round to visiting you all being away and limited interent access was very hard.But i will make big effort this week to see all those lovely desks and PIF gifts everyone has received.this is wee bit of along post..lol

If your unsure what im on about Woyww which im sure not many of you are .Well it's the Brain child of our lovely Julia.It's where we spend wedensdays visiting around the world to have anosey at everyones craftroom with out getting told off...lol.So if you fancy joining in then pop by here and check it out!

This week im afraid my desk has nothing really to show you couple ATC's still in the making a tag which i completed yesterday that you can see in below postwhich was started sometime ago.Apart from that im having major problems with my Mojo...it just doesnt want to seem to create.Mind stress dont help to which i have fair bit in my life at the moment.But hey hoe im keeping/ trying to do something daily in hope of a quick return...lol.It hasnt really returned since it's Easter Break which is sometime now.
So i am getting abit worried as never been away this long before!Todays Desk this is what it looks like this morning.....bit bare really!

Now then onto last weeks celebrations and i know my partner of the PIF gift has received as tracked it!So i am able to show you it.Although have not heard from her.It was posted last Wednesday morning whilst on holiday.

Anyways i do hope she liked it !
PIF GIFT SENT FOR WOYWW 104
What ya think??This was my second attempt you will see my first attempt further down which i deceided i wasnt going to send as had this urge then to create something else .Thats when my mojo was alive and creating...lol.So i settled for altering a frame.The theme was creativity as we all create in some ways so i thought whoever received it may put it on their wall or in a draw whatever they fancied.
I gessoed the frame then painted with kaiser paint if i remember seems so long ago.Then covered back with designer paper.Added buttons,Cotton reel ,The chipboard scissors and sewing machine are from a set from Maya road.Coloured with ranger silver distress inks.I altered a domino with vintage lady added crackle paint.The main sentiment /Phrase From T Holtz set which i stamped onto a small ATC canvass after gessoing and distressing.Then embossed with black E/Powder.The fringe at the bottom was from Boyes dept store.The woyww letters are distressed tiles with added glossy accents.The wee brass charm is a hevy sewing machine and then i made hat pin for the cotton reel.
Thats it really do hope Shelly likes this !I cant show you my PIF gift as yet not received it ,im not sure wether Julia was sending out or my partner but what i do know she was away.
As soon as it arrives i will put on show for all you Woywwers to see.

Close up of PIF Gift I Sent


Now this was the first attempt at making my PIF which at first loved then had this creative urge t make something else along the lines of "Creativity"thats when the frame was created.So i have sent the frame.The below box is painted and various torn papers stuck onto the box.I have added heart /paddlock to the front with memories on.The letters i have had coloured with my Krylon copper pen.Across the top is an arrangement of flowers prima and beaded flowers intertwined together,then added lace around the side of the lid of the box.distressed the edges



The heart shaped box does open so items can be stored inside.Heres some more views of the box.



I have now deceided this box will be on it's way to Julia as a thankyou for making Wednesday extra nosey ....lol .Whatever did we do on Wednesdays before this wonderfull idea was introduced 2 yrs ago??.Wednesdays have not been the same since...lol

So please email me hunni(andrewjude45@hotmail.com)so i can get this into the post for you.As a PIF Thankyou gift!

Well i hope you've all had fab week and received some lovely PIF gifts .I will promise to get by you all this week as have more time.

Have fab creative wednesday

love n hugs

Gorgeous PiFs you have there lol. One of the ones I made demanded it be sent to Julia as well. Sorry your mojo isn't cooperating as you would like, but your projects are quite wonderful.

voodoo vixen said...

Lovely frame and box... both projects are stunners and I am sure both your recipients will love them!!

Carola Bartz said...

That little box is gorgeous, beautiful! I hope that your mojo will be back to work real soon - I know how frustrating it is when it's gone on vacation. Happy WOYWW!

sasa said...

Great Pif - I'm sure it will be adored...Don't stress on the Mojo front, why not just play and experiment with no set goal, maybe you just discover a colour combo or background to kick start you off again...
Have a good WOYWW,

Sarpreet said...

Gorgeous PIF, Naughty mojo for getting lost. But i normally look at some layouts or sketches or old cards that worked well - and do something similiar to get the juices flowing again. Thank you for sharing your great workspace, happy WOYWW 105, #22

MaudMartha said...

Very creative and beautiful work. Gorgeous gifts both recipients will be delighted. Happy WOYWW? Teresa x

Sunshine Girl said...

Those pifs are fabulous I am sure they will both love them! My mojo has suddenly gone awol too - I came back from holiday Sunday night full of enthusiasm and ideas but was too tired and busy unpacking/washing etc to do anything and then the past two days I have been busy and again too tired at night to craft so I am hoping thats why! Its so annoying when it goes though isnt it especially as I was very creative before the half term - I am sure both mine and yours will come back soon with a vengence so hang in there! Thanks for sharing - Sunshine Girl (no. 31)

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I love EVERYTHING you have made, from the frame to the heart shaped box. I'm a bit saddened to read you didn't get a response to your person getting her PiF. I would LOVE to have that frame. It is gorgeous. Of course, so is the box.

Like you, I have lost my mojo. Only mine's been gone since February. I can't seem to get back on track, but I'm seeing some awesome pieces you have made this week. Have a great WOYWW.

Spyder said...

oh wow! I think your make fabulous (now beginning to wish the one I sent has got lost in the post! as I don't have inks and dyes and metal stuff, its all mostly paper,card and glue!) Hope you're feeling better this bright morning, maybe, your mojo and my mojo have gone off somewhere together! (I might learn something when it gets back!)
have a great woyww week. (Lyn))

You've created a couple of fabulous gifts, you must have spent ages making them.

che bella questa creazione complimenti ciao rosa.kreattiva

MaggieC said...

So many lovely things there on your desk. That heart box is really beautiful. Sorry your mojo has gone walkabout. Try doing something very different and banning yourself from crafting for a week. I would guarantee that before the week is up, you will be firing on all cylinders, and desperate to get creating again. Good luck.

Shazsilverwolf said...

Gorgeous pif projects- given me a few ideas too, thank you! Shaz #96

Spyder said...

Just googled 'configuration box' (being of small mind and not too much crafty knowledge) and watched a TM YouTube Vid, aren't they fabulous! I want one! It's what I wanted my 'box' to be, but decided to do what I did with it instead, will show it next woyww.

Pam said...

Well from the outside looking in, it looks like the mojo is flowing just fine. Lovely creations - you can tell they're made with a lot of heart.

Sam said...

Lovely Pifs you made there I would certainly be glad to receive either.
Why not try something different for the time being, you never know your MOJO might get jealous and come home!!
Keep your chin up!

SueH said...

I’m so pleased that you have a nice break in the dales Jude, it’s beautiful there but it’s a long time since I’ve visited that part of the country. I do have a cousin there so I suppose I should really make the effort to go and visit them.

Two beautiful PIF’s you’ve made there! I just love the sentiment on the frame, it’s so true.

Thanks for stopping by this week and ……….
Happy Crafting
