WOYWW 180 mojo, mojo, where for art thou mojo?

Hi world,

Desk noseying (is that a word?) time again, on my desk this week is . . . . . . junk, well not junk exactly but nothing creative and stuff that needs sorting and putting away.
Mr Mojo hasn't returned since my bad cold/ torn rib ligaments thingy.
On the left is a bag of shopping from my local craft store . . .  some memory box dies (watch this space for when Mr Mojo returns).
The cards piled up in the middle are all the lovely cards  I had for my birthday waiting to be recycled and sorted.
2 pairs of glasses?

This is the other desk I sometimes show.
 I am trying to get ready for a workshop at the weekend.
Still not sure exactly what they will be making. But it will be Christmassy, well it has to be doesn't it.

It was my Handyman's birthday on monday, I did manage to make this card for him late on Sunday eve.  Don't you just love the Octopode Factory?
Oh I have just noticed the chocolate medal from the crop how did I miss that ?
 note to self . . . eat chocolate.

Thanks for all the lovely comments last week, especially about the ribbon . .  and yes I was wearing the jumper when I cut the hanging ribbon out!!!!
Anyway off you hop to see what other  inspiring blogs Queen Julia  stamping-ground.   has signed up this week.

  16. Lovely! This is exactly how my desk usually is - not so much work being done as stuff to be organized and sorted! I am glad to see others are like this too! Happy WOYWW x Laura #116

  17. sorry Im very late I had no time to visit anyone yesterday. I hope you get your mojo back soon as that looks like a great shopping haul as for note to eat chocolate that sounds like someone who's not quite well ....or am I just a chocoholic!... have a wonderful week and enjoy the craft class at the weekend im sure you will be awesome Andrea x#60

  18. Like that you have two desks, a neat one and a less neat one that you can hide away if it gets too bad. Lovely card as well.
    Late getting round as I was out yesterday but I'm slowly getting round the desks this morning.
    Thanks for visiting yesterday.

  20. I love all of your storage right within reach! Hope you get your mojo back soon. I think mojo loss can be a fall thing since I know that there are days where I feel like a bear ready for hibernation. ;-)

  21. Hi Janet,

    Recycling cards is great! I like the birthday card that you've made.

    Thanks for the comment on my post. Yes, my grandparents left a great impression on me. My grandpa died when I was around four or five. So you see, I've those memories locked up tight!


  22. Hullo there Janet, now girl whats up?? you must be ill if you need a NOTE to eat chocolate - yum be over in a flash :D and yes can see some craftiness should be going on here - hope and pray you are well again soon.
    Thanks so much for popping over and thanks for sharing ~ happy WOYWW! Shaz in Oz. x #10

  23. Hi Janet, hope you've eaten that chocolate by now. I must confess that I do not normally like the Octopus Factory stamps - it something about those strange odd eyes - but I love your card, it's fabulous. Hope you are having a good weekend. Elizabeth x #43
