I am taking a crafting break....

I have not been in the mood to create lately. I haven't stepped foot in my scrap room or posted to my blog in a month now. I haven't even gone scrapbook shopping in a month or bought anything and that's crazy right there! I was hoping the feeling would go away, but as I sit in my scraproom tonight not able to create anything I realize it won't go away for awhile...I need a break. I have a lot of stuff going on I have alot to think about, I have been really stressed lately, I really need to start focusing on me and my family.

I have decided to resign from both the design teams I am on and post this message on my blog. I do not know when I will be back to card making or if I will at all.

Here's to hoping one day I get my creative mojo back!

Just wanted to tell you I've been missing you, and I definitely won't forget you while you're on hiatus. Rest well, do fun things, and come back when you can :)

Hey girl! I've been missing you too. Maybe taking some time for you and getting the pressure to create OFF will bring back your mojo. Or maybe you'll find another creative outlet? Who knows? But life is too short to spend time doing stuff you don't really care about, ya know? So yeah...we'll miss you, but I admire your decision.

(((hugs)))

Samantha,

Just read your blog entry. Sorry to be losing you from the team. Mostly sorry you've lost your creative mojo cause I know it sucks for that to happen especially when ya got so much going on. Hope all works out and look forward to seeing your creations when the mood strikes again!

I think this is a very stressful time for a lot of people -- hang in there and if/when your creativity comes back, take it for what it is and don't worry about creating for anyone but you. I've enjoyed your blog, but sometimes we put pressure on ourselves by trying to please others. The best of everything to you and your family. Cheryl

Prayers are with you, like most of said above, take some time for you and your family. Stamping is fun, and a stress reliever, it shouldn't be the cause. Hope you make your way back, "just for the fun of it"

Enjoy life where you're at and remember your family is always the most important. Take a break from crafting, don't feel bad about it, and one day, it will come back. I read an article in a magazine awhile back about a popular scrapbook person who had "burnout" and had to step back, take a break and she said when she came back, she was renewed, and realized sometimes it is part of a healthy cycle - will miss you, but take care of yourself okay!

We all need a break from the superflous things in our lives every once in a while. Take your time and focus on what's really important.
