Why hello Miss Mojo!





Hello my friends,

I've got happy news to share with you! Miss Mojo decided to come back. So off with you, evil twin sister Miss Nojo!

This week at CCCB the theme is called On The Road and then I found this sweet vintage photo of the cat and rabbits, which I couldn't resist. I used buttons from the thrift store. And some paper goodies from a favourite magazine of mine called Daphne's Diary.

Aren't these buttons cute?






This card will probably end up as a little wallhanging in my room. To remind me of the joy of finding your mojo back when you just keep on going!

Sewing the edges had come into my mind, but I didn't dare to screw up this lovely project...


Yesterday's card




I already showed you this card yesterday, for Charlene's birthday. But today I'd like to share more of it, as promised.






Some musings...

When this card was finished, I felt so happy. I made it after I made a project for CCCB. A mixed media collage that just wasn't it. It was missing something. You know what was missing? ME. (I don't even bother to show it to you.) Not so with this card. This is me. Well, at the moment anyway. And within a blink of an eye I made even more cards in the same style.

With earlier projects I was trying to copy the beautiful work of others (which probably includes you!). That's what you do when you're just starting with being crafty, don't you? I only started crafting last year you know... With this card I didn't copy anyone. I followed my own heart and imagination. And as you can see, it's happy, colourful and flowery there at the moment :)

I am infuenced though by two recently bought books. One is *Granny Chic* by Dottie Angel and Ted+Agnes, and the other one is by Selina Lake. But this now is so my own style in the making. For it's still a process.

I hope you like it too... And if not, well... this is me in this stage of crafting happiness, I hope you'll stay and see how my own style will evolve in the future. And I'm very sure there will be elements returning of the things I made, up till now.

So, it did Miss Mojo good to be off for a while. She makes me happier now then before. I really hope she'll stay a while now. So I'm going to nurture her very carefully and lovingly.

The End... (for today's yada yada that is!)

Of course I shouldn't forget to mention that the first card was made for our challenge for you this week at City Crafter!

  1. So glad your mojo has returned (her absence never showed in your previous projects). Love these cards -that rabbit image is so cute and such fun and all the papers are scrumptious. Liking the yellow accents too. But no sewing - what can I say ?!!!! :) xxx

  3. Hi Wendy,
    Dank voor je post. Ben zo blij voor je. Je werk ziet er prachtig uit.
    Je kunt er helemaal in zien dat je blij bent. Ik word er vrolijk van. Mooi gedaan.
    De kleuren zijn zo goed op elkaar afgestemd. Het heeft een prachtige sfeer.
    Je vertelt over je proces. Mooi!
    In januari van dit jaar heb ik 2 posts gemaakt 'Books'en 'Light' waarin ik iets heb verteld over
    waar ik op creatief gebied door heen ging. Ik herken zoiets bij jou.
    Wat is het bijzonder hè, om jezelf zo te ontdekken en meer te gaan genieten.
    Dank dat je het gedeeld hebt.
    Over het recyclen, ik gebruik in bijna al mijn werkstukken materiaal van de 'kringloop'.

    Liefs, Wilma.

  6. Oh lachen weer Wen! Je weet het altijd heerlijk te vertellen meis! Bij sommigen speelt de hitte parten, maar jouw hersentjes hebben hier zo te zien geen last van, want dit konijnenkaartje vind ik zooooooooooooooo schattig!! (zegt deze rabbit lover pur sang). Als dat stelletje hier door de straat zou kachelen, zou ik direct achterop springen ha ha ha! Je zou eens bij ons in de straat moeten kijken, wij hebben hier een behoorlijk grote stoffenhal waar je ook nog veel 'oude' stofjes (retro) kunt vinden, altijd leuk om te neuzen! Liefs, Ira x
