Design teams....they have been a huge part of my life the past 3-4 years.
The past few months it's been really difficult for me to keep up with my monthly commitments and deadlines. Life's just become busier. And my personal art is calling to me. I haven't picked up my paintbrush for 2 months and that isn't ok with me. It's probably obvious to anyone who knows me that I can't do anything without going all in - one extreme or the other. haha
Also some personal issues.......as you know my dad had some heart problems last month. He's doing much better, thanks for your comments. :) I've been dealing with some health issues myself, as well. Hypoglycemia - the result of yo-yo and extreme dieting most of my life. I started working on making my health more of a priority last year and I want to continue that journey. I'm actually excited about it. Imagine me.......exercising....eating healthy. Kind of funny, if you know me at all.....lol. But those things take time.
My family. My heart - time with them is the most valuable thing to me.
So, a few changes for me to keep up with my goals of art and health. I've resigned from my design team comittments.....I love Crate Paper and am so thankful to Lisa and Christine for how wonderful they have been to me. Sassafras Lass......what a dream of mine for so long, I'm so sad that I had to say no. Webster's Pages.....I didn't reapply, but still will always love and support Brandin and the girls there.
I'll still be doing free-lance work and guest spots. Also some fun things coming up in future Stampington Publications, so don't think I won't still be here and sharing.
Change is something I often fear and this time it is no different. But with my goals in mind, I know I can work through this transition. Thanks for listening to me today.
