Let me start by saying that I am so sorry, that I have not been around for the past week or so. Let me explain please. Before this years CTMH convention, I was working a lot of hours making artwork, swap items, workshop layouts and much more. After convention, I was putting the same amount of hours in as before convention and it really took a toll on my personal/family life. I was not giving 100% to the blog, Facebook Page and most importantly my family. I was making mistakes and forgetting to do things, which made me take a snap shot of my life in that instant. On a side note... I have scheduled a biopsy on a funky spot that is growing at super fast pace (so another reason to go back to the basics).
Three years ago, I stopped working to be with my kids full time and to work on myself. Unfortunately, I was loosing track of this very important reason, so I decided to walk away from blogging, posting tutorials, taking pictures, editing, updating my Facebook page and just spending so much time on my laptop. The minute I shut everything down, I felt a BIG weight lifted from my shoulders. It felt good!!!
Now that I have had time to think things through, I have decided to keep my blog on a VERY limited capacity. I am not looking to grow my business at this time and definitely not looking to spend more than 2 hours a week on posting. Time waits for no one and I want to be very present all the time for my children and all my family.
The response I received on the closing of Scrapbooking Ink was very eye opening. I knew then; that I was not being "present" for YOU my blog friend. So I will be working on the promised tutorials for my Extravaganza artwork and posting them soon. And for my out of state friends that order my kits, I will continue to post pictures of my layouts.
Thank you to all of you who sent me emails and a special thanks to my friends who immediately came to my home to be by my side and support me. I will update you all on my biopsy, when I get my results.
