A Day to Unplug...
So, Ms Rebecca posted on her blog that she is taking a day to disconnect and be "unplugged". No television, computer, phone, etc. One day to immerse into total creative bliss. She asked that people join her, and I am. My day is Friday. (I had told her Thursday, but oops, forgot about an appt at 1:00pm) So Friday is my day... nothing but some music (which doesn't count, because that for me, is part of the creative process).
So anyone that wants to join, leave a comment here with what day you plan to "unplug", post the "unplugged" invite on your blog, then come back on Monday or Tuesday with pictures of what you did! And like Rebecca said, no pressure, no high expectations, just be in total creative bliss! RELAX and ENJOY!
Some ideas to do on your "unplugged" day:
1) Go through those heaps of magazines, pull out pages or ones you want to keep...
2) Finish one or two of the umpteen projects you have on your table, in that box, on that shelf...
3)Journal- Sit and write a few lines of inspiration, times past, or on those layouts that would be finished except for the journaling...even on those loose photographs!
4) Play with your kids! Make it "ART DAY WITH MOMMY"... don't forget some pictures of such an memorable time!
5)Make cards... I know I am always making a card when I need it, not ahead of time. Have a big pile stacked up ready to be chosen for that special someone or celebration!
(Edited addition: If you leave a comment on my unplugged post by next Tuesday, whether you join the unplugged day or not, I will draw a name and have a little surprise waiting to send out to you!)
