So This is Where it Goes....

I've always wondered where my Mojo goes when it decides to disappear. Well I found it. Yesterday, after a morning doctor's appointment, a run to the bank, a stop for coffee at Starbucks (ahhhh...), it was time to head to the grocery store. Not my favorite thing to do, but once every couple of weeks it just has to be done. I went shopping at Woodmans, and the place is HUGE. Takes me over an hour to do the shopping.... But while I was there, I found my Mojo. Pretty sure the other shoppers thought I was off my rocker for taking this photo:


Cracked me right up! And no...I didn't buy any; why should I have to pay for my own Mojo??!! 

Saturday night, I drove over to Madison to watch the grandbabies. The youngest, Avie, doesn't like grown-ups, except for her mom, dad, and nanny. But for some reason, she's crazy about me! And the feeling is mutual! I walked in, and she held up her arms for grandma to pick her up. She nestled right in my neck, squeezing me tight with those sweet little baby arms. Daddy managed to snap a few pix, and I'm so glad he did. Will share one here:


Isn't she just the cutest?! She doesn't talk, but doesn't need to...three older siblings fetch anything she points at. She did attempt to say "grandma," but it came out "mama." Works for me. Wish you all could get a hug from her; it's about the nicest thing ever! Never enough time with them....

I'm playing along at the MFT Sketch Challenge, and also at RC's SFYTT. Two challenges, two cards. I've got a little NBUS going on in these cards. Just couldn't stop myself....You're all such helpful enablers! 


Card #1


I was a nerd in high school. Loved learning. Still do! Stereotypical nerds wear white shirts and black horn rimmed glasses, complete with with adhesive tape at the nose piece, hence, the black and white color palette. Die cut a scrap of white with my MFT Pierced Rectangles die, then used a black scrap and cut the glasses, also an MFT die. RC (NBUS) sentiment with Versafine black ink. A few black watercolor splatters to represent leaky ink. All on a Michaels white base. 

Card #2



Grabbed one of my Pebbles polka dot card bases. The focal panel is more NBUS from RC; a Quick Card Panel! You need these. You really do!! A few scraps die cut with RC dies, and added some red blings to the hearts. The sentiment is also RC with Versafine ink. Love how everything pops against those sweet polkie dots! And before I shut up today, I want to give a shout out to my sister Sue. I was blessed enough today to spend some time with her. She's the best sister ever. You'd love to meet her! Take good care and happy dances everyone!!

You haven't lost a thing, Bevy - maybe forgot for a second where you put it? Love that card, and being next to you in the line-up... Whoa - that sounded like we'd been arrested or something...that could happen =/

PiecesByEmily said...

ah such a sweet picture of you and your granddaughter. She's a cutie pie. Grandmas are the best... and kids love their grandmas.

Your first card is awesome, love the glasses and the ink splash!

Jen Mitchell said...

Well, I got to get me a can of that mojo. I could use it sometimes! But not you because you're rockin' the nerdy card AND the sweet Valentine!

Susanne Vargas said...

Hahaha! Bet your mojo was surprised that you found out where it's hiding! Too bad you don't get any money when it sells...
Your nerdy card is too funny and the second one so sweet! Just like the picture of you and your grandbaby!

Nora N. said...

So that is where it went!! I would have bought it because I need some these days!! I know why you didn't buy it because you don't need it. Your projects are adorable!!! Love the first card. So fun!! Love the fun polka dot card. You are correct about the popping. LOVE it.

Your grand baby is sweet!! I miss that age!! Have a fabulous night! Nora

Katherine said...

Lovin' that Nerdy card!!!!

Kim Heggins said...

Your nerdy card is just adorable and I love the tape on the glasses, just perfect. Your RC card is just so pretty with the stunning polka dots...so sweet. Now on to your picture and the Mojo....the picture of you and sweet Avie, is so precious and just priceless. Please send a hug my way! As for the Mojo, maybe some of us need to buy it when we see it....LOL
Fun post and miss you lots!

Darnell J Knauss said...

What a sensational photo of you with sweet Avie!! I mean it's perfect of both of you! She looks just like you, bright, adorable, and full of fun, so no wonder she is drawn to you!! You are both blessed to have each other!

Sorry, if you had cards and schtuff, I didn't notice!! Miss you! Hugs, Darnell

Kylie said...

At this stage, I'd happily spend a few dollars to get my mojo back! lol Hilarious that you found this product!! Made me giggle. What made me smile even more was the DARLING photo of you with Avie! Just PRECIOUS!!

Your cards are amazing as always. Totally love the "talk nerdy to me". lol Great sentiment!

Kelly Griglione said...

Well, I guess at least you will know where it is now when you're looking for it! Love the photos you shared of your Mojo and your adorable, loving granddaughter!

Your "talk nerdy to me" sentiment is hilarious! Goes perfectly with your taped glasses : ) Lovely cards, Bev!

~amy~ said...

Mojo...I love it!
Your grandbaby is adorable!
Love your cards...the nerdy one, I love those glasses...cracks me up and your SFYTT...LOVE. Aren't the quick card panels aweome?! Way to rock your RC!

Wida said...

hahaha! that's a funny post. Grandbaby is cutie and I agree, a lady of few words who can get others to get things for her is called a "princess"! It must have come back because you got 2 cards made! Maybe I need to go shopping!

Vicki Dutcher said...

LOVE how you found your mojo, and good for you not paying for it! :) Your grand Little is so adorable - the photo made me smile! Awesome 2 cards you made also -- you are on a roll :)

Brenda said...

I'm so happy that you found your Mojo and no I wouldn't pay for my Mojo either! lol Love that picture though. I also love, love the picture of you and your granddaughter!! I have one just like yours in that she runs to me and throws herself into my arms and gives me the tightest squeeze with those tiny arms. Isn't it the best?!!! Love, love, love it! Your cards are fabulous Bev! The nerdy card is so awesome, love your take on the sketch and love those glasses and sentiment!! Your love you card is just beautiful. The polka dot paper is fabulous and I love the red and white with it. Looks like your mojo followed you home from the grocery store! Hugs, Brenda

Deepti said...

Finally!!! I think my mojo goes there too :D LOL great photo of u and ur grand daughter. Love the cards u created :)

Martha said...

OH, Bev, your FUN story sure cracked me up! I literally LOL! Had I been there, I would have offered to take a photo of you holding the "MOJO". Priceless!

Love the adorably SWEET photo of you & your granddaughter! So heart-warming! Enjoy!

Both cards are simply lovely!

shirley-bee said...

Hehe, fancy supermarkets selling mojo! Love the nerdy card, and the fab photo of two happy peeps!

Bobby said...

Love the Mojo in a can but your nerdy card proves you don't need it. So fun! The photo of you and Avie is just precious, Bev. It's so great you get to spend time with her and her siblings. Your polka hearted card is terrific, too.

Geri said...

Great picture! I'm going to order a case of that Mojo stuff for the days when my mojo is MIA!

Sweet pic! I'm sure I could feel the hug!

Awesome cards! The 'nerd' one is seriously something that would be in Papercrafts (sigh, so sad it's gone). The polka dots - love it, s'pecially wit the pink & white! Nice bling too!

We are off to Calgary for the weekend so talk at cha when we get back :)

Susan R. Opel said...

I would think NOTHING of you taking that picture in the grocery store, Bev. That's actually pretty awesome. And your card for the MFT sketch is a stitch. Some nerd will totally appreciate it!

Have to start with that sweet photo, Bev ... Avie and Grandma in the most perfect hug ... treasurable forever (and she looks like you ... she has your fabulous smile!) Two brilliant cards ... clever nerdy one (of course, us nerds must stick together!!) and such a sweet heart filled one! Mojo ... wonder what it looks like inside the tin ... would it fit in an envelope ... would I??? Missing you, sweet friend! Anita :)

I've been at mom's for a couple days, following a whirlwind trip to see Andy's family, and will be heading back tomorrow. A zillion apologies for falling behind in commenting, so I'm settling in - before tackling more tasks - to re-visit you cards to let you know how much I ADORE them! "Talk nerdy to me"..hahaha! Love it! Fabulous card! The photo of you and darling Avie, who loves Grandma to bits and pieces...heart-warming to melting temperatures! Smiling my face off, sweet friend!
Hugs~c
