Over and Out

After some very careful consideration, I have made the sad decision (at least for me) to put the brakes on this blog...if not permanently, than at least for the next couple of months. I have a major situation going on with my daughter that requires my undivided attention at this point.

I barely have enough time to spend with my son, let alone any "me" time anymore. So, the crafting has taken a major backseat lately, and I've pretty much lost what little inspiration I had left. And, this little scrapbooking/crafting "career" really isn't going anywhere for me anyway. You can only put yourself out there so much, ya' know? I really do appreciate all of your kind comments and support over the last few months. It really has meant a lot to me. :0)

I wish you all the best of luck in your crafty endeavours, and just with life in general. I will be visiting blogs on ocassion when I get the chance. And, you can always reach me via e-mail...I'll still be checking in there when I can find the time. Much love and best wishes to you all! Later days, and all that good stuff. I'm out.

Oh, Holly, I am so sad to hear that you are going to take a "blog break." I stumbled across your blog a few months ago and I have absolutely loved it ever since! I love all of your crafty ideas and I would definitely buy your things if you ever opened an Etsy store.
But, I understand. I have two little girls and they do take so much time. I hope everything is okay with your daughter. Best wishes! I will keep checking back and hope to hear more from you soon. --Ellen

I know its so so hard trying to take care of your children and trying to build a career for yourself also. I wish you the best of luck, and please please keep in touch!

I'm going to miss you terribly. I always looked forward to seeing what you are up to. I hope that in time you will be back. And I hope that Hazel will be alright. Thank you for all the inspiration you spread and I think you were out there for sure! I thought you were all over the place. Rachel Denbow talked about you on her blog more than once. That's definitely out there! :D
