My Mojo Book











I made this book for me, which in itself is unusual!! I wanted something that I could write little notes or attach a picture of the things that I want to try out, new ideas I dream of in the middle of the night or find when I am surfing the web and I am taken by the way someone has angled a bit of lace or torn and curled a paper around a frame.... then when my mojo goes walkabout I have these jumping off points to get the creative juices going again! So why not have a plain notebook with a pretty cover? Well, when I am stuck for ideas the last thing I need is blank sheets of paper, they don't enthuse me to think of things, they just become an additional block to my creativity... so its full of colours and patterns and shapes....
So let's hope it works!! ;)

As usual it is beautiful. Didn't know your Mojo had gone. Maybe you just needed a visit home.

It's gorgeous Annette - loving the colours very inspirational - let me know if it works because mine went walkabouts yesterday and I'm fearing it may not return for quite some time!

It is beautiful ... I kind of think of us as blog friends now so I hope you won't mind me being completely honest ... but I think you have far too many good ideas for a book like that ... so change the initials and ... erm ... send it to me :0)

Great work Annette, I love it! I have scraps of paper everywhere with ideas on and they always get lost when I need them!

I love looking at your mini books. They're so inspiring! Could we have a tutorial on how to cover the spines please as I'd love to be able to do it!
