WOYWW........144.......Mojo Returned

Last weeks desk

This weeks desk!!!
Yes it's wednesday again boy doesnt it come round fast.Since aweek ago i think weve had every weather possible.From week past Sunday sitting in the garden drinking coffee ,no clouds in sight.To this sunday watching the dog in the gareden as the rain turns to Snow!!! Weird or what.Anyways doesnt matter what it's doing out there as it's Snope day and you can sit and keep warm drink coffee whilst you tour the world of crafty blogs .Thanks to the Lady herself M/S Julia
So my desk this week well yesterday after seeing Simon says challenge i had the urge to play ,and for past 2 days ive played ,got inky been away from my desk and come back.So it isnt as tidy as last week.But my mojo is slowly shall i say surfacing.I have been following the glass bottle crackle effect .Which are sat waitng to dry on my desk as i type this.


Also you will see the process of a recycled cigar box being turned into shabby /chic,vintage.That is also waitng for bits to be dried....You will see in the above piccy the bottles ive crackled and stained one with distress inks and stains.Sticking out of it is a wooden stick yep..these come from costa coffee the ones you stir your sugar with ..Oh as well as the coffee being good so are these sticks .So useful im always picking afew extras up!



This is the bit im waiting to dry on my box .This is for a swap im doing in Swapbot .Not sure wether many of you are members but loads swaps take place.But this is a group swap yep Tim Holtz lovers...So once this is completeed i will post about it until then just have to wait till it dries ...im so inpatient when i have to wait for things to dry ...not soon enough for my like-ing.


Last week i managed to get around most of you but verification and my eyes don't mix...lolThere was still acouple i couldnt get into.I will try my best this week im out this morning at the bank hoping to see if we can get some of our money back.So fingers crossed!it would be nice.Although end last week i was naughty and well had a spend as was fed up mojo wasnt around ,plus had to co on Anti -b's for chest infection that turned into left lower lobe pneumonia.Have to say feeling much better at present fingers crossed it will stay that way.As todays my last anti-b,boy was it strong i had to take 2 tabs as soon as i got them then 1 tablet once aday which i thought was different!.
Hopefully the rest of my goodies should be here in next couple days .But i did receive the prima 6x6 paper pad the "Almanac Collection"Which have to say are lush!

Anyways have creative week and fab wednesday.keep warm and safe and hopefully you will avoid these colds that we seem to pick up far to often as there's some nasty bugs around!

Have fun hugs

Last week I got derailed by a tornado, so you did a lot better than me. I really like how you are altering that cigar box. And those crackled jars are going to be awesome once you set them all out together. Happy WOYWW from #2.

The cigar box is beautiful. I do hope your run of sickness clears up soon. Must be so tiring for all of you.

Ann B said...

Pleased that your Mojo has made his/her return and in such style as well. Love the box, very pretty and was only looking at that altered bottle technique the other day, but I don't have the stuff they used.
Now that Mr Mojo is back you can get that AB going and rip away to your heart's content.

Certainly lots going on here. Mojos are tempremental things aren't they? They come and go. I find mine goes when I have the time and comes back when I'm to busy to indulge.

Thrilled for you that you're feeling better and your mojo is returning. Such a nasty thing when it decides to take a vacation! Your box there is beautiful and I'm with you, so impatient when it comes to drying time!

April said...

Wow that box is so pretty! lovely! there's nothing like a bit of a spend to get your mojo back :o) have fun x

Elizabeth said...

At first sight, I thought that was a iced and decorated cake you had on your desk and laughed when I discovered it was a box, and what a pretty box it is too. Sorry to hear you've been so poorly but it sounds as though you're on the mend now. Hope the business at the bank turned out well and that you're having a happy WOYWW. Elizabeth x #22

Ashley Rock said...

We had the same crazy form of weather too here in Ohio! So funny... the project you're working on looks absolutely stunnning!!

Yogi said...

love the projects you're working on. That's the part I hate the most is the waiting for things to dry before continuing...
Looking forward to seeing the finished product. Thanks for the peek. We just had a dump of snow. Spring isn't around the corner yet.
Have a great day
PS I don't have word verification

So glad to hear that you are feeling a bit better, and also that Mr Mojo is returning to your space. Hope you gave that bank manager a flea in his ear for allowing your money to be stolen from his care. Have a much better week and see you soon. xx Maggie #8
PS no-one in the family ever asked my to pod the peas, because they knew there would be non left to cook.

Thanks for the little peek into your crafty life. I also hate waiting for things to dry and end up using my heat tool. I've just about worn it out I think! Have a great week.

Neesie said...

It's my first week with WYOWW and I'm quickly trying to work through to everyone's desk...its so exciting but I'm a little overwhelmed by all the talent.

I lost my mojo for about 12 years and couldn't find it anywhere...but it's just found me.

Enjoyed my peek at your desk ;D
Have a great crafty week...must dash and check out a few more desks! :D
