Got Your Mojo Workin'?

noun  mo·jo  \ ˈmō-(ˌ)jō \
Definition: a magic spell, hex or charm; broadly, magical power
-- Merriam-Webster Dictionary, online version

: a quality that attracts people to you and makes you successful and full of energy:

He's definitely lost his mojo.

He needs to get his mojo working if he's going to win the election.
-- Cambridge Dictionary, online version

Here in Central Alberta, February is living up to its reputation to "puff and blow, fill the ditches full of snow".  Even  as our daylight starts a bit earlier and ends a bit later each day, it might seem as though each time we venture out of the house we're in a battle with Mother Nature to stay upright on our feet and safe on the roads.

Many (dare I say 'most'?) days I, for one, would just like to crawl back into bed and stay there.

You might just say I've "lost my mojo" -- at least as far as enjoying the outdoors is concerned!  😉 at The Crafty Lady, our 'mojo' doesn't come from the Great Outdoors.  While others are fighting drifts and icy roads, we're working our magic with yarn, knitting needles and crochet hooks.  

We like to think of these as our "super powers".

We're energized by the 29 bales of yarn that landed in on us last week. (Yes, you read that correctly: 29. bales. of. yarn!)

These are just a few of 'em!

To showcase all of those new arrivals in The Shop, we've got to make some room.

This week, we've got two ways we're going to do that.

That's right: TWO ways.

1. It's The Crafty Lady's 24th Anniversary on Wednesday, February 14.  
We'll be celebrating with a  

One-day Anniversary Sale!

Sorry, though.  No sneak peeks...But...
let's just say it includes a lot of our well-loved brands at great prices.

Just come by Wednesday between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. and enjoy the fun!

Does this mean we won't have our Super Weekly Special this week?  
You've got to be kidding!  We can't let a week go by without that! 

2. Our Super Special this week is guaranteed to restore any mojo that's been blown about by the wintry winds or frozen in a snow bank!
