Well, today I am both excited and saddened to be sharing this post with you! (And I waited til the 3rd, so you know it's not an April Fool's joke. Sheesh, that just dawned on me!!)
As you noticed, things have been quieter here.
Things are changing for us, and we are making plans for the future to move into something new and exciting for our family. With that decision made, I decided to step down from all of my card making responsibilities and design teams and originally planned to step down from everything online as well. However, we have tweaked the original plan some when things changed for us. We are still pursuing a form of Plan A, but it's probably going to take longer than we planned.
So I went back over and thought about what I really wanted to be doing.
I've been thinking about the amount of time and effort I put into this blog and YouTube and even though I love it, it's a lot. And it's not taking me in the direction that we want to go as a family as a whole. It's very time consuming to keep up a blog and YouTube channel when you are just doing it for fun. When I wasn't working, it was a great way to keep up with people and something to do. And to be honest, I've loved it.
In the midst of following our dream, I found a few new things to me.
First, I came across Chalky & Company, which is a fairly new company on the market. The specialize in Chalky Paints and product kits that you can do right in your own home. It was really something I wanted to do - hosting craft parties - but living in the middle of nowhere, gathering supplies and having them available is hard. So this company took all of that work out of the picture and made it easier for me! I am SO PUMPED to be with Chalky & Company.
Second, I made a list of things I wanted to really focus on which is the vast variety of crafts. And I pondered if I really even want to continue on with this online journey. I do. I really do, at least until we finalize plans of other things.
However, I don't plan to continue things on the blog. I will focus my work to YouTube and my Facebook page. That seems to be where the action is, and I want to make more time for the craft themselves.

THE PLAN - I will be sharing A LOT of Bible Journaling videos on my YouTube, plus some fun projects I've had on my to do list with my Cricut. And then I will be sharing my Chalky Stuff. So please be sure to subscribe to me and to both my facebook pages so you don't miss anything!!
Lastly, I want to thank everyone who had me on their Design Teams over the years. Especially lately, Sandy and Tanya. And to my team mates on the Scrapbook Blessings Club and Riley & Co and Prickley Pear. As I told them all, it was so hard for me to actually step down from these positions.
Much love ladies!!
