Taking time off from blogging!

Hi Everyone! Well, there has been some busy things going on in my life lately and I'm sorry to say blogging is going to be put on the side for awhile! I'm so sad about it, but I have to put life first for now. I'm going back to work full-time and started training today! In the future my hours will be reduced to part time, but as of when and how many hours this is unknown. This all came into play this past week and I had to make some decisions over the weekend on what I need to do to keep this schedule going.

I will blog hop when I can to see all your "lovely" creations, and if I do get a chance to post I will. I understand if you choose to unsubscribe as this is why you come to visit to SEE A CARD! I understand 100% on why... I'm going to miss you lots, and you are all in my hearts!

Thank you SO MUCH for all the sweet comments I have gotten over the months from everyone! That is what kept me going.... SMILES!

Michelle :)

Dear Michelle - enjoy the new job and the learning that comes with that. Best not to put more stress on yourself unnecessarily so it's a good idea to stop doing some stuff while you start doing some other stuff! ; )

Look forward to seeing you back when things settle down for you!

Jemma said...

Could you point us in the direction of some other blogs that you like? That way I ca stay inspired until you are back! I have loved seeing and being inspired by all your creations from here in the UK x

Good Luck Michelle, I will miss your beautiful creations.

Dawn Easton said...

Best of luck, Michelle! I totally understand where you are coming from and it does take some adjusting. Heck, it's been three months and I still can't keep up. I'll be around and still pop by when I can, just so I don't miss anything ;)

Sending big hugs and good wishes your way!

Kathi said...

Best wishes to you Michelle on your new job! I will miss you but I totally understand as I work full time and struggle with finding time to post on my blog as well. I will definitely stay subscribed and look forward to hearing from you whenever you get a chance. Any little bit of inspiration from you is so worth waiting for! Good Luck!

Wishing all the best with your new job. I will miss all your wonderful cards and your cheerful posts. I WON'T be unsubscribing! That's not even a thought, because I want to see anything you do have time to create! I have been very absent from blogging myself, however I hope things are turning around and I will be posting much more!

Take care of yourself, my friend!

Good luck with your new job!! I will be here whenever you post again!! Big hugs!!!

Susan (peebsmama) said...

Well I for one completely understand. I keep trying to make cardmaking and blogging a priority in my life but I realized a lot of the reason I was doing it was so I wouldn't let my regular readers down. But I realized that so many other things in life are more important so I have had to take breaks too. I won't give up on you! I hope your busy life settles into something that makes you happy.

Emily Leiphart said...

I totally understand. Life is busy! I'll keep checking back for new creations!

Michelle, just wanted to stop by and say I miss seeing all your wonderful creations. I completely understand though. I am back at work now too, so my stamping has slowed down a bit. I still try to squezze a little stamping time in just to keep me from going crazy. lol. Well I hope things are going well for you and I hope you can find some time to do the things you love:)

Terry Molineux said...

Oh Michelle I totally understand. While my blog never got off the ground life has really thrown me some really hard curve balls and I cannot recover from it. I post when I can but unfortunately I am not making the money I wanted from blogging like some girls out there. I had high hopes maybe in the new year.

I am desperately looking for employment I lost my job two years ago and now financially we are hurting most of all me because I cannot support my habit anymore...
I love SU and want to stay a demo but if I do not find a job SOON!!!

GOOD LUCK to you in your new job and I will be looking no matter how you post!!!

Inky Hugs,
Terry~~
