  9. Baking/cooking shows and vet shows help me relax. If I have had a crap day or just need to veg out for awhile, I’ll watch Bake Off- UK or Australian versions. They are all super nice to each other and I find the accents soothing.

  16. How do I get in touch with my creativity? Well, first I have to wake up early in the morning or stay up late at the night, why? Well, everyone is sleeping then (I mean my annoying siblings) and I can hear my thoughts without no one screaming in my ears (literally). I like having something for eating, whatever, fruit, coffee, hot chocolate, sweets, the brakfast…
    But, the main thing is just having a breath and let the ideas come.

    Thank you for this amazing chance.

  17. A bubble bath, a glass of wine and a good book is how I unwind. I constantly have to encourage myself by remember how bless I am to refuel.

  18. Well I fix me a glass of unsweetened iced tea and sit in my comfy chair by the window and look outside and see how nature has made everything. I just loose my mind on the view and then I start to get inspiration and start to become creative

  19. To relax and refuel I liked to sit outside on my porch and read. Having some chocolate nearby is great too!

  20. I just told a friend I should start a journal and this would be a great start. My husband and I moved to Florida four years ago and I have not written anything since I have been here. Good luck everyone.

  21. I relax and refuel by reading a good book and Julia London is just one of the many authors I enjoy. Also spending time crocheting or just playing with my grandson.

  22. For me, the best way to get in touch with my creativity is to relax and look for ideas in Pinterest, craft stores, magazines, etc. Sometimes it is just simply choosing to be open to inspiration.

  23. A cup of coffee, some mellow music and my porch. Birds either starting the day and sharing plans or ending the day and all the gossip that entails. Man I wish I spoke bird.

  24. I feel I used to be so much more creative than I am nowadays. I’d rather sit and read than most anything!

  25. Keep writing – love your books and sense of humor.

    I like to sew for creativity – relearning how to knit with my youngest – its been fun.

    Thanks for the chance to win

  29. I like to take some time out of the day and unplug from all the technology around. No phone, Facebook, Twitter, etc just me and my print book and a hot cup of tea for at least 15 minutes. It’s a great way to recharge during a hectic day!

  31. Firstly, I would like to say thank you for this opportunity and great giveaway. πŸ™‚

    Actually, I’m not a creative person.
    I just do something that makes me happy.
    I usually spending my spare time with my hobbies (reading books and listening to the music) to relax my body, soul, and mind. πŸ™‚

  32. My creativity can be sparked at any moment. Many things inspire me. I do some writing and I do many different crafts so I am pretty busy most of the time. As for relaxing, give me a cup of tea and my kindle and/or a book. This is a great gift box.

  33. So cute and cool I love the little bee. πŸ™‚ ah It depends sometimes It’s listening to music or finding pictures or a new word etc.

  34. I just recently started journaling and I keep filling up note books. This one will come in handy and a new book is always a joy.

  35. I like to relax by crocheting or sitting with a hot cup of coffee and a good book. Thanks for the fun giveaway!!!

  36. I love my craft work. Knitting in particular. I especially like taking tried and true patterns and tweaking them.

  37. I have to admit that I’m not creative πŸ˜‚
    I usually browse the internet for ideas and I would combine those ideas or do different kind of things with similar tactics.

  38. I enjoying making art; painting or drawing. It’s not anything to brag about, but it is relaxing.

  39. I spend 20 minutes each morning doing deep breathing in complete silence to get my creativity flowing/to rejuvenate. Thanks so much for your generosity in hosting this giveaway!

  40. I sit in my special comfy chair, open up the iPad and start typing. I don’t usually turn on music, as it distracts me ! But I go back to my favorite place on a rowboat on a lake in the Berkshires, and somehow things start flowing. My stress goes away!

  41. I meditate for 20 minutes a day. Afterwards I feel refreshed, centered, and ready to tackle anything!

  42. I relax by grabbing a apple a book and going to read under our giant Magnolia tree. It really helps me get a perspective on my life.

  43. I don’t see myself as a very creative person, rather a very concrete person. But when I have my ideas, it’s usually when I’m concentrating on the situation/issue/problem. However, the ideas may flow but if I don’t write them down immediately, I’ll forget them! So shower ideas are out of there! Love your writing! Thank you for letting me leave the creativity to you and letting me enjoy it!

  44. I relax by doing a crossword puzzle book, reading a good book and listening to music.

  45. I think the way I refuel is by crocheting or knitting. Also sitting down and reading a really good book. I have been working on my family genealogy. And that has been very interesting.

  46. What an awesome giveaway, I would love to win. It is cool here today so I have spent the day in the kitchen making chili and cup cakes.

  47. I have many different ways to relax or refuel – taking a walk outside (that helps at work), crocheting (that has been proven to lower my blood pressure) and reading (that takes me away from the stressful, frustrating world and makes me believe in happy endings again!)

  48. the best thing to refuel for me is a nice long soak with lots of candles and wine.

  49. I do a lot of different things – I read, I knit and I go for walks around my neighborhood taking pictures of clouds. All of these things help me tap into my creativity. Oh, and then there’s Pinterest.

  50. This looks like it could inspire anyone to journal, which is such a great way to recap ones life

  51. In summer, I sit on my porch overlooking the lake and study the shimmering waters; in winter, I sit in front of the wood stove and watch the bald eagles while they sit on the frozen lake and wait for the fishermen to toss their left-over bait to them.

  52. I get in touch with my creativity by zoning out of what’s around me, and complete focus of what I’m doing. It works for me, as I tend to get a lot of work done on my craft.

  53. I love to sit back with a cup of tea and a book to relax. To get my juices flowing for work and concentrate I take crochet breaks. Crochets focuses and distressed my mind.

  54. I like to relax by sitting on my back porch with a glass of iced tea and a good book.

  55. I refuel by reading or do puzzles on my computer. Both keeps my mind so that everything else is forgotten and I feel refreshed.

  56. I go for a long walk which revitalizes me, and gives me enjoyment and allows me to appreciate life.
    After breast cancer, surgeries and now RA I have hope and everything is more meaningful.

  57. As I’m falling asleep, am dreaming and then am waking up, my brain comes up with some amazing stories!! It’s usually mixed with my most recent or favorite read, but that makes it all the better!!

  58. I just have to relax and refuel which means ME time!! Thank you so much for the opportunity and your generosity

  59. I always sit on my back patio and listen to the birds to get my relaxing and refueling time

  60. I love to relax and refuel by finding a quiet space and lighting candles, fixing a cup of hot tea and of course reading a great book! I always feel so refreshed when I can find a time to do this ritual!

  61. I just love to get a good book and sit on my back patio and have a hot cup of Lady Gray Tea. This really revives me every time!!!

  62. I am not a creative person usually. I require input. If I get stale I just change to reading another genre. Regency to Science Fiction for example.
    I do have my moments though. My 57 year old brother had cancer that required radiation treatment. He was joking that he wanted to shoot webs out of his wrists like Spider-Man. I ordered him a cape with the radioactive symbol and RAD MAN underneath. Yellow on one side and black on the other. He could then use whatever super powers he gets. He is very excited for Halloween.

  63. I relax and refuel by taking a hot bubble bath and read a good book. It eases my mind, body and spirit!

  64. I find creativity everywhere! Sometimes when it is quiet and sometimes in the middle of a party! Remembering what I want to do is the hard part — so a pretty notebook and pen would come in handy!

  65. Great giveaway.
    I do all kinds of craft projects-today I made a bouquet out of bird feathers that I painted gold dots and stripes on and then a light dusting of gold glitter. I arranged in a vase. Looks awesome.

    I look at items and say “How can I rearrange or make it into something else.”

  66. I get a touch of “inspiration” simply from reading. There’s always that “internal dialogue” in my brain (typically sarcastic and skeptical in nature) as I read whether the book is good or bad, and then I write my review!

    • Congrats Jessica!
      Your comment was chosen second via random. org and you’ve won three of my books and a book bag. You’ll be receiving an email from my assistant shortly!

  67. I’m not very creative. Usually my kids help with that. I do like to relax by reading or watching a movie. Thank you for this chance.

  68. When I want to relax or just go to sleep, I have a running story in my mind that I simply tweak or continue to the next scene. It never fails to work and I’d love to actually write my story someday.

  69. I usually sit on my deck with a drink of some sort, a book and my kitties. The best part of my day.
