Hi everyone venturing in from the wonderful world of WOYWW!!
( If you don't know what WOYWW is:
don't be lazy, don't be shy,
 just click on the link
 and you'll find out why!
 ( oh I rhymed...yay me! lol )
 
My desk this week...
 
 

I'm actually learning ( like at my age, I just NOW figured this out!! ) to be a little neater, put things away and wash my desk top between projects since I am now making projects for the store. I have come to realize that organization really helps out Mr. Mojo ( who knew he was a neat freak? ) Well, he is either a neat freak or maybe he just gets so bored with cleaning and organizing that his mind frees up with creative thoughts to mess it back up with...either way it's a win win situation!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If you don't follow my blog on a regular basis, you can catch up with this week's series of humorous Thanksgiving cards by going back to Monday and Tuesday's posts. :)

I know sometimes my family could have benefited from this:
 
Best Creations - paper
Tim Holtz - Distress markers
Doodlecharms cartridge
 
paper, and journal card - Best Creations
turkey cut from Doodlecharms
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I would love for y'all to "like" both the studio where my stuff is displayed ( Art Mob Studios and Marketplace ) and my new personal business page ( Sandee's Artful Words ) on Face Book. You don't have to,
 but it is appreciated!!
:)

Lovely neat desk Sandee and another funny funny card. I bet there are many families could do better doing that haha. Have a great WOYWW :0)

okienurse said...

Love your cards this week! I guess the Mojo or lack of it for me is due to the mess my craft room is in. Gotta get busy and get the rooms switched out! Have a great week. Vickie #73

Sunshine Girl said...

Glenda said...

Limited space dictates I clean up after each project. As to whether it helps with my MoJo...don't have a clue. Glenda 109

sandra de said...

I did have a good giggle over your card. I am finding as they years creep up I really need a clean desk in between projects so that I can be productive. Maybe it takes us a long time to learn that lesson. Enjoy your week.

Hi Sandee, Love both those turkey cards! Made me chuckle. I also need to tidy up regularly. Inspiration is hard to come by when you are drowning under layers of stuff! Thanks for your kind comments re my knitting.

Hi Sandee,

I'm still learning LOTS about myself at my age (which I think is the same age you are)! That's what makes it fun.

Love the card!!!

Hey, I know what it's like to have life take over and not be able to go around and visit sometimes. No stress - no worries!!!

Hugs, Kay #17

Rita said...

Tertia said...

That mr. Mojo is a fickle man> Now you see him, now you don't. I suspect he likes a clean space too.
Love the card.
Happy WOYWW!

You know I love the humorous turkey cards, Sandee! It is true (at least for me) that the creative juices flow better in a clean space. Good luck with all the projects for the store! Have a wonderful week! Darnell #132

Hi Sandee, I think I saw that you were picked as a winner for one of your canvases, think it was Faber-castell. Was that you? Have a great week.

Julia Dunnit said...

Ha! Turkey and Prozac...many a true word!
I love that you're still learning, it's a good thing. I am too. I just don't take the lessons too literally.., so you can go top of the class!

BJ said...

Thanks for stopping by, and I think neat is great. Oh and btw the name badges are for the adults who help at toddlers not the children - LOL. Oh and badders was a good work out today, more tomorrow. :) BJ#19

FUNNY card!! I am very organized, thank you--the floor of my art room is one big shelf . . . ;)

Happy WOYWW!

utterly shameless this week . . .

VonnyK said...

That's a really funny card. I'm afraid neat is a dirty word in my studio. Can't seem to work if it's not messy :) Sorry, I don't have facebook but all the best with your work and business page.
Have a great week.

Erika said...

Hi Sandee love your thanksgiving card it made me smile. Your desk is looking very tidy too...only jealous.
Have a great Thursday,
Erika.

Katie said...

I love that Thanksgiving card. I so want to send that quote to my mom, she'd just love it!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

I'll definitely have to check out your humorous Thanksgiving cards--nothing humorous about Thanksgiving in my family. At least not until years later after time has healed the wounds. I once cooked the full on dinner for 5 family members and nary a one showed. Yeah, good times. Hubby and I have cold pizza and colder beer for Thanksgiving now. So much easier.

Anyway... that Mojo Man, I suspect he is a bit of a neat freak as mine does better with some tidying too--not too tidy though cuz that is just well, too much.

So Prozac I'll keep that in mind for the next family get together if there is one but I think I've been disowned. I could do the only child/orphan thing, Sooooo much easier.

Jojorenee said...

Love the card! I always host Thanksgiving don't remind me its that time again! 137# Tamika

butlersabroad said...

Yay, she's finally seen the light!! A cluttered desk leads to a cluttered mind IMO, and a cluttered mind can't concentrate on the task in hand! Love the turkey card, that's one way of having a happy celebration!

LuLu said...

Howdy,
That is one productive desk you have there! Love the drawer units too.

Would love for you to visit mine when you have a moment or 2.

Peace,

Sorry I can't "like" your pages, although I bet I would. You know me and facebook are the reasons I can't join pinterest. It just isn't happening (grin).

Bernice said...

Yes - I would agree - I can always work better when my desk has a little bit of free space - so guess why I haven't made any cards recently!? Happy belated WOYWW!
