Mr MoJo please come back I miss you!

Went to my local shop for a craft day yesterday - a whole day surrounded by stash and folks full of ideas and I just felt MoJo less! This book is a commission from a colleague - for another colleague who gets married in August. Her hen do is a week somewhere hot with 5 friends so the idea is all her pals give her a piece of advice by writing it in the book - advice on married life and how to keep the harmony!
So as it was for the hen week I thought I would go hen themed - perfect to use my Crafty individuals hen stamp. I have attempted this book a few times over the last few weeks and didn't like what I was doing so as I was at the shop I decided to get some papers I liked and work it around that. The title of the book is "clucking from the hen coup" which I thought sounded a bit of fun but now I am not so sure LOL.
Anyway papers are Echo Park I believe - the letters I am not sure but they were in the sale section. CI stamps and peeled paint and barn door distress inks. So now its done (this took me 3 hours (Can't believe I took so long with bits of paper!) and I will pass it on later today. I did also manage 3 days of my advent calendar so I am up to no 17! Hope I feel more excited after my planning session with Michelle at lunch time!
Hope you are having a great Wednesday x
ps am loving google chrome!


  1. Loving the book and what a fun idea for her "hen week".
    Hugs xx
    p.s. my mojo isn't back yet either. :(

  2. What a fab idea for a hen night. Every one loses their mojo from time to time. Sometimes a complete break from crafting for a few days is good. It's better than getting frustrated and filling the bin with failed attempts. I got my mojo back after the Lovin Ink retreat!!! I am sure it will return.
