Welcome to the Mojo Monday Sketch Blog!

Hi Everyone! For those of you who are new to Mojo, Mojo Monday started as a weekly sketch challenge on my personal blog, Poetic Artistry, in September of 2007. I always seemed to have a bit of a brain fog on Mondays and thought a groovy little sketch could jumpstart that mojo. We've had 67 sketches so far, and a whole lot of fun. And now, starting with next week's sketch #68, all sketches will be posted here on the Mojo Blog!

Mojo Rules:
Everyone is welcome to play along with ANY stamps they choose. The more the merrier! You can play any week at any time, but once a month we hold a Mojo Madness contest with a deadline and prizes. To play, just upload your creation using the sketch to your online blog or gallery and then leave a link to your creation in the Mr. Linky section on that week's post. When you leave your link, be sure to link directly to the post or gallery page where we can read about and/or comment on your card.(You can get this by clicking on the title of your post and then copying the url from the address bar and pasting into Mr. Linky).

The Mojo Makers:
To help me out this year, I've picked six mojo-licious stampers to play along and give y'all a little inspiration each week. These ladies are seasoned mojo participants and I know you're going to drool over their creations each week! Please join me in welcoming the Mojo Makers...

So, be sure to check back on Monday, January 5th for the first sketch of 2009!

And while you're here, take a moment to grab the code for the new Mojo Monday badge or subscribe to the blog through your choice of feed reader or feedblitz email subscriptions, or simply become a Mojo Follower. The choice is yours! :) All links are in the sidebar.

  41. Is anyone else having issues with the badge? First it was there, then it was blank, and now it's a Verve badge. Which isn't a bad thing, of course, but I'd love to have the Mojo badge as well!
