Things to Do when the Mojo is Gone

Sometimes I want to craft but for some reason or other the focus is not there....inspiration and motivation right out the window.

I will think to myself 'Oh well then, I should work on that crochet blanket' or one of the other works started and unfinished. That does not often work for me.


Here are some things to do when the mojo is gone:

Tidy your work space - sort out that wool, those pens and get rid of rubbish

Organise your work space - things where you can find them

Re - do work space - make the space new

Cut pictures from old raggedy books or magazines for paper craft work. You can then arrange them, photograph or scan them in different positions and sizes for your projects

Cut down cloth for patchwork, quilting and sewing projects

Gather cardboard and cut them to greeting card sizes

Put projects you would like to do in order of priority in a folder or a list in your journal or work book

Paint backgrounds on bits of cardboard, just one colour...you can always go back and add other layers

Doodle - let the pen wander, draw groups of simple themed things like stationery, stick figures, flowers and leaves, simple animals, Christmas, Easter...

Colour in - let someone else make the lines, have a good play about with colour without judgement of what certain things 'should' look like

Read a magazine, book.

Watch a doco or movie

Listen to music

Just relax - take a break


Crafters are influenced by everything. In my own case, ideas grow and everything about me, everything I do adds to whatever project I am working on even if I don't recognise it.
