Jo - don't you dare sell it all ... I go through stages [sometimes weeks] when I cannot make a flippin' thing! My MOJO always returns eventually and yours will too. When I go through a dry spell I get out all my crafty mags and keep looking at them for ideas. Don't give up on us babe XXX

Try not to worry too much Jo, this happens to all of us. It's tough, because we feel pressured that we HAVE TO make something every day or every week. The truth is, it's a hobby and we do it because it's fun. That means that if we don't do it for a week or a month or even a yaer, we just had other things we wanted to do more, or just didn't feel like crafting. And that's fine. You'll feel like it again soon enough, when the time is right. Until then, relax and enjoy not having to pick up those annoying scraps of paper from the floor! x

No Jo, don't you give up. We all have days, weeks like this. I know I feel like that sometimes. Enjoy your sewing. Don't give up, big hugs Vicki oxo's

Don't give up Jo, your mojo will return. We all go through phases where we can't make anything and then all of a sudden it comes back.

Hugs

Chrissy said...

I just dropped by to say Hi and I hope ur ok - Hugs ChrissyX

Jo said...

Don't worry, quite a normal thought but don't dare sell a thing. Was thinking exactly the same thing a week or two ago but now I'm raring to go again but can't find the time...hopefully tomorrow.

Stay positive Jo! The mojo thing happens to me all the time. It'll come back. In the meantime just relax, don't worry about the blog or any of that. Even stamp an image and just play around coloring it in. It's very good therapy -- that's why little kids don't have such troubles we big kids too, they play and relax and color and....life is good!! (hugs)

nessy said...

me again jo ~ hope you have got some photos out and are making some scrapbook pages !! just go for it ~let it all out ~don`t have to show on your blog if you don`t feel like it!!
just let us know when you have done one! always around to listen!! we have all been there!

Chrissy said...

I am passing on mojo too, in fact I am putting mojo on my blog in your honour :-)

Hey Jo - just found your blog through Jo K and just had to tell you that this mojo thing that goes missing is normal babes so bear with it cos it WILL come back. I've been at this card making malarky now for 10 years and trust me, it happens to everyone. You cant turn your creativity on and off like a tap chicken, you just have to make the most if it when it is there and accept it when it disappears again xxxx Big hugs, Dawny xxx
