Goodbye to Mojo Monday

I was so sad to hear the news that Mojo Monday was closing.  While sad to see Mojo Monday go….I totally understand.  So much goes into running a challenge blog, especially one of the magnitude of Mojo Monday.  Mojo Monday comes up as the The Blog and to me, they are The Challenge Blog.  I started blogging in 2011……not really on my own free will.  I loved creating cards and scrapbook layouts….but unless you knew me or came to a workshop….no one ever really saw them.  Everyone kept telling me, you have to start blogging.  Honestly at the time, that was way outside my comfort zone.  It soon became a part of my life. I have met so many awesome crafters along the way.  But, honestly I felt my work did not compare to so many of the other bloggers out in blogland.  I was soon bitten by the challenge bug and started entering challenges.  Mojo Monday quickly became my favorite.  In February of 2012….I finally felt I belonged.  I was chosen as a finalist at Mojo Monday.  To this day, that is a huge milestone for me in blogland.  In 2012, the winners were hand selected…no random generators.  Here is a look at my card from way back when-

My life has been a rollercoaster the past few years and my blog reflects that.  You can see where I was actively blogging and then seemingly disappear from blogland.  I still love papercrafting and am working on having the time to once again create and enter challenges.  With my recent return to blogland…..I have attempted to keep up with Mojo Monday.  My thought has been, if I can get the Mojo Monday Challenge done…it is a good week.  Which is also why I was so sad to hear the news that they were closing.  There are a ton of great challenge blogs available now, but to me Mojo Monday will always be the best.  Thanks so much for the memories and the great sketch challenges……and thanks again for totally making my day by choosing my card as a finalist!
