Sad News.....;-(

Good morning Crafty Friends!  I'm back for a minute. Literally! It's been a busy year and summer.  Last year a good friend of mine convinced me to go back to school and finish what I started a few years back.  So I did!  This on top of working and vacations and life in general has been made things a little crazy at home. Good crazy...but crazy nonetheless.  I have decided to take a few months off from stamping. 

I love crafting, I love the crafting friends that I have met in the last 15 years! Yes...15 years!! Crazy right?  I have met friends that I think I will be friends with for life.  Some are who I vent to when life gets crazy or somebody annoys the living heck out of me.  I don't even need to name them, they know who they are!

I have officially stepped down from my last design team....for now.

 8 years ago when I made the step into the "Copic" world I was so eager to get on a design team. I started out small and with challenge blogs, etc.  Then I got picked up by Magnolia-licious and boy did I think I hit the big time then! From that moment, I have literally been non-stop and have been on so many of the BEST design teams (IMO) around! I am so grateful for everything that I got out of designing from supplies to friendships.

My last 2 design teams were the hardest to leave. All them were, but these 2 were special to me!  One of the first stamping companies on my radar 8 years ago was Stamping Bella. I just loved those Bella Babes and Linda Heavens work just drew me in.  It was a huge decision for me to step down from being a Bella-Babe. I'm still not sure it was the right decision, but I hope to be back in a few months! Fingers crossed they will still want me!! ;-)

The other company I am taking a break from is extra- special to me!  SugarPea Designs will always be special. Wendy and I met so long ago and we clicked right away!  When she started up her company I was so happy for her and the designs are awesome and I love having some input here and there.  She got me out of my "Copic" comfort zone too! I actually think I started being a better "Stampy- stamper" in the past year too. You know those non-colored images that freak me the hell out!  My "Break" from Sugarpea was the little push I need, I was sad at first, but it was a good thing.

Having said all of that....I'm not saying I am leaving forever, but what I am saying is...I need a break! I need a couple of months of NO deadlines. 

So, I hope you don't delete me out of your stamping world and I do hope when I come back, which I welcome me back with open arms!  Who knows, I may still do a little stamping in the meantime. I believe I will....but it will be a no deadline card! ;)  (like the one below)  Ok, so I made this months and months ago...but I never got to post it!

Hugs and See you in a few months...maybe sooner! ;-)
