This is kind of a bittersweet post for me to write. Sweet because I will now be spending more time on my family and with my children and bitter because I love to design and scrapbook and be in this community of other creative minds. My sister Kel and I had this vision in mind many months ago and really put a lot into making this site fun and creative and then slowly got into making kits too. It has been only three months (I know a short time), but the amount of work it required surprised us. Though we both live and breathe scrapbooking and being a creative energy, neither of us want to give up our day job (and night too :) of being full time wives and mothers. Yes, we are taking a break for a while. We will still post and add freebies and new kits, but not on a weekly basis like before. It was too much! I am the mother of four beautiful growing children and want to enjoy them while they are little and need me. There will be time later on in life that I can really pursue the things I want. But for now this chapter will have to wait for another time and is getting put on that shelf titled "Me and My Time". Yes, the shelf is gathering dust, but someday I will get to dust it off and immerse myself in "me". I just feel strongly that this time is for them and that it is far too precious to waste. I was spending so much time sitting in front of my computer, often at night when they had gone to sleep, but it was catching up to me during the day and I was getting tired and grumpy. I am also three months behind in my own scrapbooking. So, my sister and I decided that our family comes first and so we are departing from aggressively trying to get this blog up and going and popular. Offering freebies and kits will continue, but only once in a while...it will give me more time to work on it if I know there isn't a deadline or expectation from others. We want our loyal visitors, fans and customers to know how much we appreciate their comments and support. It really has meant a lot and inspires us for future success when we are ready to come back full-time. Yes, we will be here still and adding things every now and then, so please check back with us and enjoy our sale to clear inventory. If you would like to receive an email every time we update our blog or post something, please send your email address to us and we will add you to our growing list. You are so awesome and again thanks so much! Keep scrappin' and doing what makes you happy. And don't forget to make those special memories with loved ones along the way...it's how you live your life that matters most!
