WOYWW 229

I had nothing to show for my work desk as I am completely mojo-less at the moment, but went and checked the mailbox and there was an envelope with my name on it!!  
Elizabeth kindly sent me some of her lovely hand made paper and the ATC for the 4th anniversary swap.

and a Halloween card!  Would you look at that, how cute and my very first ever Halloween card!  Thanks E, just what I needed to cheer me up! 
I gave the scrap desk a really good tidy and clean up this morning as if my mojo goes missing, this sometimes encourages it to return.... so here is hoping! :)
Don't forget to check out the linky list over at Julia's Stamping Ground for desks in abundance!!

  4. That is the kind of mail I love to receive as well. It also helps me to clean my studio when my mojo is low. However, with those beautiful handmade papers your received, I'm sure you'll be inspired to make something. Happy WOYWW! #26.

  8. Those papers look yummy, can't wait to see what you make of them. Love the card.
    I think all the MOJOS are at some kind of conference for a re-charge and getting ready for the holidays.

  11. Pity that mojo person has gone AWOL. Hope the desk tidying and the lovely hand-made paper gives you a good warm-up to some new ideas of your own.
    Good to visit again, and I hope you're enjoying your sojourn in Brisbane.
    Warm wishes,

  16. Lovely mail - help, is it time for the 4th anniversary???
    Now Annette, you must get yourself a good sleep or something to refresh you. I cannot do to come and visit and not find something of your absolutely gob-smackingly wonderful work to drool over.
    Really am missing your creations.
    Hugs, Neet 24 xx

  17. I realize I'm really late getting here, but I've been rather "indisposed."

    It looks like those top three papers got really mangled when I apparently crammed them in the envelope. That's the trouble with thin HMP. And remember when you use it, use a DRY glue. I prefer glue stick. Don't use your ATG because it turns into a nightmare when it tries to stick down, or a wet PVA, because the pulp might disintegrate.

    Glad you FINALLY got your final (I'm assuming final) WOYWW fourth year anniversary ATC. Glad you weren't my intended PIF, like Spyder was, because at least I still HAD yours.

    It's odd I would sew everything (ATC and card) when the person I'm sending the gift to is such a gifted seamstress. Now you know why I mostly sew on paper (grin).

    Get your mojo back soon, please. Happy WOYWW from #6, I think.

    Happy WOYWW

  19. That is the best timing ever! What a lovely parcel to get...aren't WOYWWers the best?
    Isn't it funny how you get the urge (or not) to do specific things. Sometimes the thought of sewing just drives me nuts, especially if its a commission that I really don't want to do....and yet, at other times, like the patchwork squares this weekend, it just flows. There's no rhyme nor reason is there?
    We've seen a lot about the fires on our news..how scary. I hope that you are ok...
    Hugs, LLJ 7 xx

  21. I do so hope your mojo returns soon! Is there a Mojo planet somewhere, do you think, where they hang out making amazing stuff just waiting for their owners to find them again? I love your happy mail, though! I have always wanted to make my own paper and that Halloween card is gorgeous! Have a great day and lots of positive vibes for the Mojo to come back pronto!

  22. What a sweet thing for Elizabeth to do. I find that sometimes when I am cleaning my desk I will find some mojo. It may not be mine, but I'm not picky. ;-) April #29

  31. Nothing like it when you're a bit short of something..a missive from a chum. I am confident and in no doubt that something will fire your imagination...may I recommend you try a trip to a charity shop. Only coz it's cheaper than a craft or fabric shop!!
