♫ So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, good night... ♫

 
Isn't she just too cute?? :)

Hi, everyone! Hope the first few days of the New Year have been treating you well! :)


It's getting late and I'm dragging, so I guess I'll just get right to it... I'm taking a blog break.  You're shocked, right? I mean, what, the general decrease in posts in 2011, and increasing absences towards the end of the year weren't an indication of things to come?? I know, I know, it's been pretty obvious. :P

Baaaaasically, I haven't been feeling well this year, and it's taken a toll on me physically and creatively.  I'm just spent.  So, I figured it's time to say bye for now, and hope that once things return to "normal," I'll be back in full force here on the blog-o. 

Until then...

I hope you start feeling better soon. Sometimes the best thing you can do is take a break (and a breath) to give yourself a chance to fully recover before going at it again. Good luck and best wishes.

Hope you are feeling well soon. blog when you can. there is nothing written in stone that says you have to blog once a day or once a week or once a month. Just blog when you can.

Julie said...

Ohhhh Heather...I hope health-wise you are doing okay. We'll be right here waiting when you can come back. I'm taking a break too, to pursue some professional goals that I have. I'm not really liking it very much but it must be done...there are only so many hours in the day! :) Hugs!

Heather...ironically, yesterday, while looking thru my file of fave cards and noticing that most belonged to you, I checked to make sure my blog reader wasn't going thru a hiccup and not feeding from your site. I'm sad to hear that you aren't feeling well. You need to put yourself out front and get yourself feeling better. That adorable little girl needs you! So, I'll hope and pray for the best for you. However, I'm keeping your blog in my reader "just in case"! I sure would hate to miss it if you decide to pop back! I'll continue to admire you from afar. Best wishes!!!

Awwwww girlie so sad to see this but sometimes we have to get our priorities right and your well-being HAS to come first!
Obviously I will miss your awesome creations and your fabulous eye for colour but I'll sit and hope that one day you'll surprise me with a project when I'm checking out my Google Reader in the future.
Take Care!
Hugs!

Heather, I'm so sorry to hear you haven't been well. Please rest up, take care of yourself and your family. We'll be here when you get back. I will say, you will be missed. But we're all big girls here, so don't worry about that one bit.

Hugs,

Hi Heather, I am sorry to hear that you are not feeling well and taking a break from the blogging world. I check your blog often and get so much inspiration from you. (I took your advice and posted my pictures on Flicker and then to my blog. Works so much better! Thanks.) Hope to see you around in the future.

Kristin Moore said...

Heather,
I think I sort of know how you feel- my blog posts decreased tremendously in 2011. Once I realized that it wasn't the end of the world if I only posted when I felt like it, I was able to enjoy it again and relax. Sending good vibes your way, and thoughts of health and happiness for 2012. Will look forward to seeing your posts again some day!
