Well, as you will see in the picture... not alot!

Over the past week my mojo seems to have fled and my motivation has vanished; I've sat at my desk and stared at things, but just haven't managed to do anything. I'd even lost the urge to blog-hop!! I know, I know, I've just not been feeling myself! 

Resting behind my cutting mat is the one card I managed to do this week for my little cousin's birthday; she's mad on Hello Kitty so I traced the picture out of one of my daughter's colouring books lol. And the doorhanger from last week has that side finished, though at some point I want to do the back too.

And on the far left there, the card with the decoupage daffodils, is a card my daughter made and its waiting for me to sort out a pic and upload it to her blog later.

If you hop on over to Julia's blog the Stamping Ground, I'm sure you'll see some much more interesting desks than mine!

I really hope my urge to craft comes back pretty sharpish, and hope you've all had a much more creative week than me!
Take care and happy crafting,
Charli x

Hi Charli, sorry to hear your motivation took a vacation! Usually I get inspired seeing all the creations on the blogs, but since you've also lost interest in that,it's not going to help! My suggestion is to just start something even if you're not inspired- maybe that'll jump start your mojo! Or how about look through all your supplies? Patsy from

Morning Charli,
Have a major clear out of all your stash. You will be amazed what you will find that you had forgotten and always wanted to do something with. That worked for me anyway, and my mind is buzzing with hundreds of ideas all colliding and getting mixed up.

Always hard when the old mojo packs his bags for a while. I usually randomly pick a challenge and make a card for it, get's me thinking again.

I am feeling a bit like theat today - aminly because I intended tidying all my wool and I am still sitting here blog hopping. I really want to get my embellisher going but need to have a little inspiration first!!!
If you haven't already, then please pop over to our blog shop and get your name down in the BIG celebration draw.

Good luck

Just relax and enjoy whatever makes you happy at the mo. I had a dull phase after Christmas and now I am on overload. Just let things come...inspiration can be anywhere...

Thanks for sharing your space, have creative fun,

It will come back Charli - go away and do something completely unconnected - baking...or something for a few days...ignore your desk. Your mojo will soon be stamping its foot demanding attention!

It's weird how that happens. I think that everyone experiences this feeling and you need to get away like Julia said.

Hi Charli, I second Julia's advice, better to do something completely different and not agonise over the loss of your crafting mojo - it'll come back in time. Hope you have a great week and we will see you again next week. Elizabeth x #27

My mojo tends to go walkabout when I stress it out over getting things completed for a class or something. Don't dispair it will return! Thanks for sharing. Vickie #162

Love the Hello Kitty card, how clever of you to copy out of the coloring book! Thanks for the peek of your desk.
