I shouldn't say it...

and fingers crossed it stays... but it seems my Mojo has made a return to the house!
I've managed 4 layouts in the past week... OMG!!!!
But shhh..... we don't want to scare it away!

So this week I've managed 2 singles and 2 doubles, so my to-do list for entries for the show has now been reduced...

And I'm actually very happy with the way they've all turned out and I haven't even purchased anything to complete them which is good. Slowly using my stash up.

And apart from these 4 layouts, I also managed to make another baby mini album, so that one's all set for when my niece has her baby.

So onto the next project... though really I should go and get the shadehouse all cleaned up...
But then... the Mojo is home!

A little bit creative...

Slowly getting the mojo back and I've managed a couple of little projects.

A double page of photos from Helm's Arboretum. These photos were left over from the mini album I made.

And even though it took me a while, I managed to do this little Twiddlybitz Birdhouse Moneybox.
One thing I learned... cut all of the paper and stick it down BEFORE you put it together. Was a very fiddly little job but I'm happy with the way it's come out.
I do have another little one to do too....

It wasn't originally going to be the blues and greens, but that's the way it turned out.

Well I have a rare day off and the washing is all done, so I'm heading back to my scrap table to tackle another layout. At this rate I might just have some things to put into the show this year...

Spoiling myself...

I got a nice tax return this year, so decided it was time to spoil myself with a new craft table instead of the trestle tables I've been using.
So this baby rocked up on my doorstep....
It's a nice square table with plenty of room to scrap for me by myself or with friends!
Even room for me to check proofs for work! :)

But of course a new desk required a new desk caddy. Though I love my tote given to my for my birthday a few years ago now, I don't really travel anywhere to scrap, so when I saw this one from Kaisercraft decided it would be good to have a permanent caddy for my desk and I can load up the other one when (if) I go anywhere!

I really loved this paper from Prima and wanted to use it but I only had the 6x6 papers so it required a bit of creativity.
Do love the way it has turned out and it's that big that 3 of the drawers haven't been used yet. I also put the dividers on only 1 side instead of breaking both sides into 2 which was a better fit for my pens and tools etc.
And I've put rubber feet on the bottom so that it wo't slip on my desk either.
