Hello friends! It’s a sad/happy good-bye today.
I wasn’t sure weather or not I was going to be typing this up at the beginning of this year or not, but with the way the world has been with covid, it actually has given me a reason to “put this off” for a while.
I had actually planned on making this post last year around the time my husband retired from his job as we had lots of plans and my time would be occupied with other things besides having a blog, being on design teams, etc. When covid happened, it really haulted most all of our plans and was really disappointing, but hopefully now with vaccines coming shortly we can “get back” to some type of normal soon. We still plan on continuing with our plans as we get closer to those goals we set ourselves and we look forward to enjoying our lives!
That’s the “happy” part of this post is the looking forward to what’s coming and the enjoyment of life together with my husband… but the sad part is saying good-bye to all of my wonderful and faithful friends that have followed me here and everywhere I’ve been on the Internet for several years. I thank you SO MUCH for your kind support, friendship and inspiration that you’ve always given and I will miss that most of all for sure.
But in talking with my husband, it’s time for me to say good-bye to my blog and being on design teams along with struggling to try and post something when I probably won’t have the time or material to keep a blog going in the near future. I’ve had a blog for the most part on different platforms since 2006 and that’s quite a while to be doing this. I’ve had so many different experiences, made so many different projects and have met and made so many different crafty friends. It’s been such a rememberable experience in so many different ways and I’m thrilled you have come along and touched my journey in some way. It was meant to be, but now it’s time for me to move on. (No, I won’t be coming back this time.)
No, I will not be giving up crafting all together. As long as I have time to set aside for crafting, I will continue to do it, but it won’t be enough to keep up with a blog and it will be a very random thing. So I’m not giving up crafting, just having a blog or social media accounts.
I will have this stampedsmiles.com domain until the end of May. After that point, this blog will revert to stampedsmiles.wordpress.com if you care to see anything after that point. I will not be on Instragram any longer nor have a Facebook Page. Just my personal account and that’s all.
In the words of a REO Speedwagon song…”I know it hurts to say good-bye, but it’s time for me to fly.”
Happy crafting, stay healthy and happy sweet people!💗💗💗
