Stepping Down

Hello again everyone.. Well I hope your all enjoying this beautiful Monday morning.. I wanted to pop back in, and fill you all in with some decisions that I have made.. After much thought and talking it over with hubby.. I have decided to Step Down from most of my DT commitments. My health has not been that great since I had my heart attack a yr. and a half ago.. And I think its time for me to start taking better care of ME.. I also feel the need to spend more time with my family and friends.. So I will be saying Far well to;
Bizzy Bec’s Blue Butterfly Stamps DT
Anita Be Stamping DT
And at the end of Oct.
Simply Betty Stamps DT..
I have so enjoyed designing for these Fantastic Ladies and working with their awesome images!! It has been such a joy getting to know so many talented DT mates!! I know I’m going to miss the groups and all the chatter and sharing in their life’s.. You gals are all just Amazing!!!
I will be staying on at The Paper Shelter.. And I Will still be doing cards, but just for the fun of it. I’m also hoping that this will give me more time to hop around and visit my followers and leave them some love.. Well thanks you all for understanding..
 Big Hugs, To all !!

I completely understand your reasons Linda, I think we all reach that point sometime in crafting as I am doing the same, cutting back to just three DT's so I have more time for me, family and crafting for fun again.

Health & family are far more important. Enjoy your crafting at a slightly slower pace.

I am sure you will be missed on your dt's. I understand your do need to take care of you and spend more time with family and friends. I found I was spending so much time as well...since we are in the midst of trying to sell our house and move, I had to step back from most of my dt work as well. I don't think I truly realized how much time I spent blogging and crafting until now. Take care of yourself!!

You come first. That's a rule. Glad to see you will be taking time for yourself. I'll miss so many cards, but I'm sure you'll be active enough.

Oh hun, I appreciate what a tough decision it must have been for you - I stepped down from three at the end of last year, and it was such a hard thing to do. BUT, you are doing it for all the right reasons, your health and your family, and we all understand. You just have to put yourself first sometimes! Hugs, Sxx

It's hard to make these decisions Linda but I'm so glad you're putting yourself and your health as a priority! It will be great to still see your cards 'for fun' being posted on your blog. Have fun relaxing with your family and taking care of you!
