Creativity Experiment

Before I get started on the rest of this post, Did you notice my new blog design? Tonya  mentioned that she just noticed I had pages.  My lightbulb went off and I said "My tabs are not easily seen."  I fixed it.   I really like the new layout.

I have been reading various things that are supposed to help creativity.  I have done this before and found that some of these things work for me.
Honestly after all the rush getting things ready for Christmas, I feel like I need a break.  So one of the (hopefully) simple things I am going to do is take a "time out" from sewing and blogging for a couple of weeks.  Now, I am not promising that I can make it two weeks.  I am hoping that this will let my creativity stew up some great idea and get back on track.

Now, I know that I can't take a blogging break without letting some of you know it. A year or so ago, I went on a cruise and didn't buy the internet package - Whoa!  I got back ashore and discovered that someone actually missed me.  A couple of you were ready to call out the CIA, FBI and any other agency that could track me down. (Thanks, that made me feel really good, after I got over thinking "what? I can't take a week off?")  So for this break I am saying "Hey y'all, I am fine, I just need a rest"  

That said, I may have to come online a bit to read some of you blogs so I don't fall too far behind. (LOL, I do have a bit of a net addiction you know)  But if I don't comment, don't worry, I will be back. With any luck, I will be better than ever.

So as this is probably my last post for this year - let me say:  Happy New Year to you!  I hope your 2011 is filled with love, wonder and lots of good times.
Peace be with you till we meet again. I plan to have some fun things going the next time I post.

Oh yes, so many of you have been wonderful to me this year.  Thanks for making my year so good.


PS.  I will NOT be replying to comments on this post.  I hope you understand - it is part of the break thing.
See ya mid-January.

Happy New Year Gene! Enjoy the break. I myself would have to be on a cruise or on a desert island or something to stay off the internet for two weeks.
