Well, well, well. Here we are – again. The holidays are officially behind us and we’re set to start yet another New Year. Or are we? I don’t know about you, but I wish I had an optimistic attitude like the one Melanie at Spread The Love has! I have to be honest, I have a strange feeling about the future of ABCD Design. I am just not sure where to take it. Before, the posts I wrote created interest in the stationery I was designing which led to new clients. I saw direct, and favorable results from writing this sketch book. Now that I am not really focused on selling anything, I find myself wondering “What’s the point? Why am I feeding the blog all this energy when I could be away making something?” To tell you the truth, I considered pulling the site down and calling it quits between Christmas and New Years.Then I got a few awesome notes over the holiday break (from you guys!) which filled my heart with such joy that I realized I can’t just stop writing on this site entirely. After thinking it through, I came to the conclusion that taking it down isn’t fair to all of you who have been such loyal readers. Not to mention, I really do not want to give up on ABCD Design cold-turkey.As you know, I backed off taking bespoke stationery clients last Spring when I knew I’d be focused on the house renovation full time over the Summer. I kept ABCD Design a float because I was certain that in time I could and would figure it out and transition into the next thing without skipping a beat.Since last Spring, I have interviewed with a world renown interior designer, a lighting designer, the design center, and was even asked to try out for a spot on HGTV! (As you can guess, none have panned out…yet!) The renovation is not completed, we’re way over budget, and I still have not figured out my next step. It’s all making me feel less and less inspired with each day that passes. Color me depressed, no?Perhaps it’s the end of vacation feeling that everyone gets when it’s time to return to work, but I am not ready for the holiday break to be over. My gut is telling me that I need to do something that will stimulate my creative energy, that I need to get back on a firm schedule with a routine that will keeps my spirits up. Instead of taking down the site, I am considering changing my posting schedule. I think I may only write posts when I’ve actually made something. This will free up my time and (hopefully) open some doors to new creative inspiration.

I’d be interested to know where your head is at as we start 2011. Am I alone, or are you feeling similarly? Are you geared-up and ready to tackle 2011 with gusto? What’s your goal for 2011 and where are you getting your inspiration from?
