WOYWW 401 – Getting There

It’s Wednesday and that means I need to take a picture of my desk and share it with my friends at Julia’s Blog – the Stamping Ground.

I’ve been working on organizing my stuff since my mojo is on vacation.  I’ve gone through most of my stamps and have organized them by company.  I think I’ve decided I want to organize my dies in along with the stamps, but that is not a final decision.  Dies in shapes like circles, ovals, squares, etc will be in their own container.  My embossing powder had gotten mixed in with my sequins, and pretty pearls and prills and glitter paste.  I have now separated all those.  Adhesive is in it’s own container as are my tools for picking up little pieces and getting rid of sticky balls.

Here is what my desk looks like this week.  I get it cleaned off and I am suddenly inspired to make something – sort of.

At some point I will get this room cleaned up and do a craft room tour.  Until then I will keep searching for my crafty mojo while organizing my crafty stuff.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Tune in tomorrow for another project.

Have a great day and enjoy the journey and some chocolate.


Luke 4:  16 – 19

 He went to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and on the Sabbath day he went into the synagogue, as was his custom. He stood up to read, and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him. Unrolling it, he found the place where it is written:  “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor.  He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”

WOYWW 401 – Getting There — 14 Comments

  1. I am on a reorganise and chuck out time with my craft supplies too! My aim is to get all my stuff in two plastic units of 5 drawers each. Except for my paper which is too heavy to put in a plastic drawer! I’m nearly there! I then have to decide if I should catalogue my stamps…..I have them in theme order. Clearing out and tidying up should help you feel more inspired, ask the Lord to help you. Last year I had three bereavements plus lots of other personal things going on, I completely lost all creative sparkle, but it is slowly returning, I hope and pray! LOVE Luke 4 16-19. Can you just picture their faces when Jesus spoke this? You and I read it with excitement and joy but they weren’t so happy………!

  2. You have a lovely space. It’s always a good feeling to reorganize. Finding a few things you even have forgotten about. I do think it re-energizes one’s frame of mind. I’ve posted a whole studio change over this week and I truly have enjoyed it. Enjoy a lovely week.

  3. Your mojo is only misplaced, it will be found again. Mine went for over a year, we are reacquainting ourselves slowly. I didn’t have chocolate today as such, but I did make some Vegan chocolate brownies for a friend’s birthday on Friday. Of course I had to test one(!) Good luck with your search and I hope you have a good week – EmbroidRage #8 x

  4. funny how cleaning can give you that ‘oh shiny thing’ moment and you’re off to craft with whatever you found. I’m hoping to do a room tour soon, too. Just not quite there yet. Maybe we should set a date and keep each other on track 😉 Creative Blessings! Kelly #35

  5. I think you’re doing the right thing…a good clean up or organise always sparks my mojo, if for no other reason that I want to use stuff that I find! I think the one thing that really makes a difference to me is grouping stuff, like putting your adhesives all together, it saves so much stopping and starting and makes tidy up time so much quicker!

  6. Organising is always the best thing to do when your mojo has taken a hike. Hope it comes back soon, only just finding mine after a looooooong time. BJ#9

  7. Looks great! Sometimes when i need a little kick, I go to my Pinterest files, and just choose something. Anything. A tag, and ATC, a card, just close my eyes and pick. And I tell myself I HAVE to do it. So I do, and that often gets my creativity moving again, especially as I don’t want it to look exactly like the one I chose to do! Hope your mojo comes back soon! Thanks for sharing! Lindart #45

  8. Your studio is looking good! I need to organize all my stuff sometime, because I keep buying more supplies and just piling stuff up. I’m afraid I’m a hoarder when it comes to art tools and supplies. Anyway, I hope you get your mojo back soon. Happy WOYWW and Blessings!
