Congrats to MOJO

Mojo Monday posted its 200th sketch challenge.  WOW!  That's something.  I figure that makes them close to 4 years old.   I haven't been following Mojo for that whole time, but once I found it I became a loyal follower.  Mojo and other challenges are responsible for my blog.  It all started a few short years ago with stalking the Splitcoast site.  I think I stalked for about 2 years before I got the courage up to post a card.  Reading the posts on Splitcoast I found out about challenges on the Internet.  To participate in some of the challenges you needed a blog, and that folks is how I came to blog. 
Back to Mojo...Every Monday a new sketch challenge is posted and the first Monday of the month is a prize week.  The Wednesday of the following week the winners are announced with a slide show presentation.  I just love to sit and watch the cards.  There are so many talented crafters out there and the cards are fantastic, lots of inspirations in that show.  Even browsing the thumbnails I get inspired and impressed.  So thanks to Julee for such a great blog, I hope this challenge is around for many more years.
