Mojo Monday Anyone?

Hi Mojo fans! I just realized I never posted the news here, so I'm letting you know I have brought back Mojo Monday sketches on a little more relaxed schedule over on my personal blog, Poetic Artistry.

I post a new card sketch every other Monday and the linky is open for 2 weeks.  No prizes or design team, just me and the sketches like it was in the beginning! 😄 I absolutely love seeing your creations and would love for you to play along.

The current sketch and link up is here:  

To receive the sketches, you can sign up for email alerts from my blog, follow Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge on Facebook , or follow my Mojo Monday 501 and Beyond Pinterest board.  Happy crafting!

June Mojo Madness Winners

Hi Mojo friends! What a wonderful two week celebration this final sketch has been! I've loved peeking in at each and every card and reading your memories and the wonderfully sweet words of support you've shared. Thanks so much for 9 years and 10 months of making Mondays fun! It's been an incredible ride. But a look at these incredibly sweet little faces reminds me exactly why I'm making this decision. Watching them learn and grow has turned into the greatest blessing of my life. And as I'm watching them hit each milestone side by side, one day I know I'll wake up and all at once this house will be so very quiet and lonely. I hope I can say at that time that I did all I could to be present when these little souls needed me most.

There have been lots of questions as to whether or not the sketches will remain available. The answer is slightly complicated. The blog will still remain here with sketches as part of the blog posts as long as Blogger continues to offer free blog service.  I will be turning commenting off after the winners have claimed their prizes, so I don't have to continually monitor comments for bots.

The archive files of the monthly pdf's and quick reference sketches are stored on the Mojo Monday server. The domain and hosting package is paid through mid-January 2018, but I won't be renewing, since the out of pocket cost is a couple hundred dollars a year. That means that as of January 2018 those files and images will no longer be available. Our Pinterest board will still be there for an easy look through of all the sketches, though.

Okay, on with the winners! Thanks to everyone who played along. As always, I was inspired by your amazingly unique and creative takes on the sketch. Our randomly picked winners are:

Well, that's a wrap on Mojo Monday! As I say to my boys each night...thank you with all my heart. From the top of my head to the tips of my toes, to infinity and beyond!
