WOYWW - 160 - Hello MoJo - Are You Out There?!?

Hello Wednesday!!  This is the best day to blog hop.   If you don't know what I'm referring to go check out Julia's blog at  Stamping Ground.  You'll get to see all sorts of crafty goodness from around the world.  No, really.   

I'm in a funk because I've used up all my allotted mojo for the month.  In preparation that it comes back soon this is what I've done.
Some supplies and some ATCs and a card that I got in the mail
(thanks Carol, Di and Theresa)
This will be my color inspiration.
I've decided to make some cards.  Yes, get a little inky.  I thought that I wouldn't make any more cards  - but I must say, visiting blogs on Wednesdays has gotten me in the card making mood again.  That, and the fact that the local Hallmark store closed and you can only buy cards at the grocery store now.

Let's see, which stamp sets will I use first?

As always, I will visit those that end in the same number as me.  I will also try to visit everyone that visits me - be sure to leave your number with your comment.  

Lavinia - I sent you an email to verify your mailing address - has my ATC arrived yet?  If not I'll be happy to try again.

RosA said...

You will have to borrow some mojo from next month's allowance! And if the local card store has closed then you need to make a stockpile of cards for your own use :)

Neet said...

Ooh love that little bag you have what great inspiration there is on it - could have done with that myself to inspire me for something I have recently made for a DT piece but I am not redoing it now. Hope it gives you lots of inspiration and gets that mojo working for you.
Thanks for sharing - Hugs, Neet #21 xx

Roudi said...

Can't wait to see how those cards turn out! Would love it if someone educates me about all the ATC's getting to bloggers all around the world lately! lol Seriously, what is that all about? :D A little help here. perhaps?

Love you. ♥

Victoria said...

Gorgeous inky inspiration ready for when that naughty Mr Mojo comes back! I've checked under my desk and behind the door but he isn't there... good luck finding him!

Julia Dunnit said...

Wow, that's is a good inspiration source...and hey, thrilled that your inspired to make cards. I've used up my mojo too, so am trying to do a bit of 'playing' which I'm not so good at, I like an end result!! Thank you a million times for the ATC, what a great doodle bird you draw, so cheerful!

lisa said...

Hope Mr Mojo returns from his holidays soon, Kay, it's so frustrating when he disappears. Still WOYWW is bound to inspire you I'm sure.
That pencil case design is so beautiful, I love it, as I love the gorgeous ATC you sent me, thank you so much. Your doodle bird is such a cutie.

Love the Paris scene - great inspiration. Hope your cards go well (look forward to seeing them - hope you share next WOYWW). Thanks for letting us have a peep into your workspace today. Hope you have a good week. Hazel, WOYWW #27 x

cheers, rachel #68

butlersabroad said...

It's nice to hop around to different things so go for the cardmaking for a while until something else takes your fancy. I laughed at your mojo only having an allotted time! I usually find a good tidy up helps as I find half finished stuff or a new paper pack I'd forgotten about! Love that little bag, you need these free papers to help inspire you with that theme. Here from Two Peas, or if you don't mind spending a couple of bucks then try these from Raspberry Road. Hope those links work, lol!

fairy thoughts said...

hi kay
you have to go with the flow the mojo way (very poetic) especially if it involves chocci biccies! hehe
I haven't brought a card from a shop for over 10 years now and don't intend to start anytime soon.
have a good week, your colour scheme looks lovely

Anne said...

Hi Kay love the colour scheme you are going to use. Hope your mojo returns and you soon have a stack of cards. Happy WOYWW.

mark gould said...

happy woyww, thanks for stopping by, really hope your mojo comes back soon. mark

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Luckily, there isn't much time left in this month in case mojo is alloted only in monthly increments. I love your color palette so once that mojo returns (or you opt to fake it) you'll have a good time playing with that. I've been in a Stampin' Up mood too, so you may see more of them on my blog soon. Or not. I'm reserving the right to change my mind. I bought myself some chicken salad at the store the other night. Then I came home and ate a bologna sandwich. Hubby just laughed at that. Chicken salad for lunch tomorrow though, pinky promise!

sandee said...

Sorry, Mr. mojo is over here visiting me right now, I have fed him and pampered him and hoping he will stay a long time! lol You don't need mojo anyway, you are uber talented!! waving the #49 from the hills of North Carolina :)

okienurse said...

great post. Love all the stampin write markers and the fun stuff you have out there for me to drool over. Out storm chasing so making short posts. Have a great week. Vickie #159

Sometimes it takes the daftest things to set us off on a creative journey - so why not that little bag?? It's rather cute after all!! Some more gorgeous ATCs I see - this has been so much fun!
Ah well, am off to do some more sewing, got a craft fair at the weekend!
Hugs, LLJ #3 xx

Di said...

Hi Kay! Love that colour inspiration - Mr Mojo will return, never fear :) Still hunting for the hiding bird here - you could be right, perhaps it's in the garden after all :)

Belated Happy WOYWW! Di XX

Spyder said...

I hate it when the Mojo goes off somewhere, with no note when it'll be back or where's it gone! Nice ATC's, I think the WOYWW atc swap will last all year!! There's some Mojo for you!! Have a great crafting week! HaPPy WoYwW!!

Glenda said...

Mojo can be very sneaky sometimes and just slips out the side door when your back is turned. When mine leaves, I make flowers! Sorry to be so late in commenting this week! Glenda 103

Queen Lightwell said...

Lost mojo seems to happen to even the best of us, eh? ;) You get the implication that you are one of the best, right? I don't have to spell it out for you, do I? What's that? I have gone and spelled it out for you anyways?! Well, lest there be any confusion...you are very talented! One of the best! And so into each life a little rain must fall or the flowers would never bloom...blooming flowers! Sounds like a profanity, huh? heeheehee
Hey, I tell you what, Darnell(#52) has some bits of hilariousness over on her blog today, go check it out...maybe you'll find your mojo there too...like Glenda says it can be very sneaky! :)

Deeyll #153
P.S. When my mojo is on the go-gone I usually paw through my supplies and make a general mess until the fancy strikes me to make something out of that mess...try it out, at the very least you'll have a veeeeeeery interesting(read messy!) picture for the next WOYWW! lol

Connie said...

Hi Kay, I am looking forward to seeing your cards. I need to make a couple myself. I have a couple family members with things to celebrate and a friend that is in need of a little cheering up. I think it is always fun to go to the mailbox and find a little personal mail among the bills and advertisements. Have a wonderful 4th of July, Connie :)

Redanne said...

Hello Kay, Thanks for your visit earlier, I really appreciate you getting in touch too. I love the bag that you are using for inspiration, it has such beautiful colours and I look forward to seeing what you create. Lovely ATCs there too, it was such fun to do the swaps, I hope we can all do it again soon. Crafty hugs, Anne x

Neesie said...

Apologies for my late visit...it takes me all week to desk hop and I still don't get to everyone!
I had Mr Mojo leave without a word but he came back and was so demanding wanting me to give him my full attention!
I'm sure your mojo will do the same.
Happy Belated WOYWW ~ Neesie #39

BJ said...

Hi Kay and thanks for stopping by my blog and becoming a follower, I'm honoured. Wish we had some heat here in the UK and less gloom though. Thanks BJ#4

Morti said...

LOL - had to chuckle cos neither my number ends the same as yours, nor had a visited you! I must be your bonus visit this week!

Good luck with the return of Mr Mojo - have read your post for 1st July and have my fingers crossed that Mr Mojo will play ball for you. Bling is good when not overdone....

Thanks for stopping by!

Lavinia said...

Hiya Kay....sorry so late with comm,s this week. My internet dropped out AGAIN....whaaaaa its not plating ball at all at the moment! Love the goodies on your desk, the carry on stamp is a winner! :) I like the sound of this "Hobby Lobby" place :) hope there is one where I am when I come over in Nov! Ooo crafty shop!
