My Heartfelt Thanks and Sad Farewell

I think this may be one of the hardest posts, I've ever written.  After much soul searching and and deliberation, Carole and I have decided to step down from administrating  BBTB2. Carole is staying on, but I will be leaving the design team, as well.  We are thrilled that Susan is taking over the reins and continuing the tradition of Cricut inspiration that Regina began in 2007.  A huge thanks to her for her vision, inspiration, guidance and friendship and to Heather for keeping the blog alive with BBTB2.  There is no doubt in my mind that Susan will make a fabulous team leader and I wish her the best of everything.  A huge thank you too, to the designers, both past and present, who have been so generous with their support, inspiration, friendship and love.  I promise to keep in touch.

I'm looking forward to a little more balance in my life and pursuing some of the things that have been on the back burner since my full immersion into paper crafting. And as for crafting, I hope to have the time to dabble in some mediums and styles I haven't had a chance to explore. This certainly isn't a good bye to my Cricut projects, however.  I fully intend to keep designing and sharing with my  blogging friends as much as possible so I hope you don't give up on me.  I truly appreciate your visits.   xxD 

P.S. This is a pic of a design I did for Custom Crops  back in 2009.  If you're interested in the instructions and free .cut file click HERE.

  2. Wishing you all the very best as your focus changes in life - a tough decision to make but sounds like you are doing it for all the right reasons. I haven't been the bestest of blog buddies lately but know I'm always in the background and have heaps of your projects bookmarked as inspiration! Looking forward to seeing your future 'dabbles'. Your blog will have a permanent home on my sidebar under my faves.

  8. :( All good things must come to an end... Wonder if it will only be half as exciting now when I play along...
    ENJOY the next chapter in your crafting journey! :)
