WOYWW 128 I seem to have lost a week

Hi world
gosh is it really wednesday again so soon. Time to blog hop around the world under the leadership of Julia Dunnit. stamping-ground
Not much on my desk except mess. I am sorting my Christmas stamps, I seem to have lost my mojo!!
 Lst weekend was really busy for me as I had a family wedding to go to, my handyman's birthday and family visiting for the weekend.
 On the up side I had to work on saturday, so I missed the cooking marathon that was dinner for 9  (also known as WW3 as it happens) whoever would have thought my 3 daughters could cook a big meal together.
 (I think the answer is they couldn't). It all turned out ok in the end.
 All this activity didn't leave any time for crafting .
I had intended to spend my extra day off on Monday crafting, but as with all the best plans I decided to have a stinking head cold instead (actually not by choice!!). whats the next best thing to crafting?. . .  craft stash shopping.... I did that instead!! I brought some new masks and christmas pressies.... for me.
I did have a go at making some Christmas Papers. . . . .I dont think they turned out too bad, you cant really see the embossing in the photo.

Here are the said stamps, which to use? could not concentrate enough to decide.
I had a look at grungy monday but couldn't decide on that either. grungy-monday have a look it celebrates the techniques of 'lord' Tim Holtz 
tim holtz.

I did make a few very simple cards for my craft sale next weekend. I think I have lost the plot for that.
Still I think I have a bit of time to peek at a few desks before i look for my mojo!!
happy WOYWW


  1. Hope you head cold does'nt linger for to long. You did a great job making your own christmas paper

  2. Come on cold weather squish the bugs please. I know what you mean about the days off. I have Monday set aside every week and it just seems to fill up either in advance or all the things that it is helpful to get done when a toddler is missing and my lovely crafting day gets squished to an hour or so. The papers are great, hope your mojo turns up soon, I have so much to do at the moment losing mine is not an option!

  3. Hi there; thank you for sharing your place of creativity with us this week, it was great to pop in and visit.

  10. Well, you've been just as busy as me!! It calms down a lot next week as I've only got two more fairs late Nov/early Dec. My poor old sewing machine is begging for mercy. I was in C&H on Monday too, but you were obviously poorly, I looked at everyone's name badges but couldn't find a Janet. That's why...
    Hugs, LLJ #42 xx

  11. Sounds like everyone has been really busy this last week, hope you beat the lurgy soon. Love the homemade papers, very impressive.

  12. Hope your nasty cold has gone. Love all the bits on your desk. I would love to make cards but can't cut a straight line to save myself.

  13. Love those stamps! When my mojo is running low I grab a scrap sheet and just start stamping different things. Usually they turn into embellishments to use later, then I can get back to what I needed to do :D. Hope your's comes home soon! #23

  14. Agh, being full of cold is such a killer for decision making and concentration - I think you did well to get off the sofa, personally! I tidy when the mojo is low. But then I need to. You probably don't!

  15. For being number 1 this week, I'm awfully late visiting. I'm so sorry I'm late, but, after a computer crash I had to stop by and get a bit of inspiration from your desk. Of course, I want to steer clear of your cold, so I hope your mojo returns even before the cold goes away.


I'd love to know you have popped by so please leave a comment, they are much appreciated.
