Yesterday, Julee Tilman posted the 500th and final Mojo Monday Sketch. What impressive levels of creativity and dedication that shows!
While I am sad to see the Mojo Monday Challenge come to an end, I can only applaud Julee for her decision to spend more time with her darling twins! Minutes, days, and years with our children pass all too quickly.
Over the years, the Mojo Sketches have stretched my crafting muscles and have improved my skills. The balance of a sketch allows freedom to experiment with colors, papers, and techniques.
Just for fun, I went back to my SCS gallery to see when I actually started posting cards. It was in August 2012, and Julee commented on my first two cards. My first Mojo card was created from sketch #250. It's pretty rough, but Andrea Ewen was kind enough to leave a word of encouragement.
It's become a habit to visit the Mojo Monday blog each Monday after school even it it was just to look at the designers' cards. I'll miss that as much as the sketches, I think. Lots of my favorite sketches are saved and are sure to be used again.
Thanks, Julee, for inspiration, encouragement and lots of fun!
