Question When does your mojo flow?

For the past several weeks, I have noticed that I am my most creative on Sundays. I can make things any other day of the week, but I really feel it on Sunday. I don't know if it is from viewing all the favorites or what, but I wondered if anyone else has a certain day that they feel their mojo flow. What is your most creative day or time of day?

Usually I feel most creative when I've had a good night's sleep, so Saturdays and Sundays are usually my best times for crafting. In the summer, I can craft in the mornings or afternoons (I'm a teacher) any day of the week, but I find when I work full time, the mojo just isn't there when I'm exhausted at the end of the day.

I'm a Sunday person. Too tired after work, supper etc. during the week. Saturday I putter around with it but it all seems to come together on Sunday. Interesting question....

My mojo is the highest early in the morning. Unfortunately I have too many things to do besides stamp. Like get the kids ready and off to school. Rarely can I create at night when they are asleep because usually I am so exhausted from the day I have no energy left.

Oh I am a early morning stamper, if I don't have something made by 9am I probably am not going to get it done. As long as I have a challenge for a guide I am good to go.

Interesting responses! Like I said, my day is Sunday, but my time of the day is usually after the kids are in bed. Then I stay up waaaay too late. Sometimes I don't go to bed until 3:00am!!

Hmm, old mojo and I haven't been on the best of terms lately. Right now my craft area is a makeshift setup in a shared open area (dh and I are living with his parents while we get ready to move back overseas in May), so I'm not always able to stamp when I want. I always feel badly about the mess I make when I stamp, so I usually wait till late in the evening so that I can make as big of a mess as I want, then clean it up before morning. Unfortunately, my mojo (when it's working) seems to flow best in the daylight hours, so it's a tad frustrating. By the time I get the space to myself, all those ideas I've had floating around in my head all day just seem to get stuck!

For me it is early morning, 4am that's when I wake up, have breakfast and then off to create something. Usually by 3pm I am draggin'.

Have a happy stamping day.

I work best on the weekends, usually midmorning-afternoon.

However, I do find that on the weekends my cards stretch out and end up taking hours, whereas if I try to make a card after work on the weekdays, it comes together much quicker (but maybe not "better").

i only have time at night (late night) to stamp, so i have found that if i have enough energy to go up to my "studio" the mojo is usually there.. If I have to force myself, or go "Tobi, you have to get ---- done by tomorrow" my mojo is GONE. I did just buy a flat screen and mounted on the wall so maybe instead of watching tv on the couch i will watch tv in my "studio." that's the hope anyway..

ps... i'm calling it my "studio" because i've seen people use that word lately and maybe if i call it my "studio" it will spark my mojo and get my butt up there to my "studio" more often!!! hahaha...ha...........ha............... or not....

No particular day since I am home all week but I feel it more in the late evening or early morning. My worst time is in the afternoon. Maybe because the kids are getting home from school and I am having to think about making dinner and such.

Well let's see I used to be an evening crafter (after the kids go to sleep) but a couple weeks ago I moved in to a new place and I haven't been able to get my mojo back. Not sure what will jump start my creativity but somethings gotta give!

Seems the afternoon is when I have the 'calling' but impossible to do anything major with two young kidlets around. Its hit and miss at night after they go to bed. They don't sleep well so I can't stay up too late.

Weekends, sometimes (but not often) in the evening...I'm NOT a night person.

I'm so a night person!! Evening and the wee hours are my premium mojo times.. Somehow I feel that during the day I should be out and about accomplishing something and enjoying the nice weather - if we ever have any nice weather!!
