Big News...Designing Wise

I am going to be retiring at the end of October. I have thought LONG and HARD about this and tried to put it off as long as possible. However, it is time.

 See, my family and I are going to be adopting children with special needs, namely Downs Syndrome.  (If you are a regular reader of this blog you knew that. ;) ) With the two teenagers that I homeschool and ordering my life as well as I can (before we get a child placed with us), designing is one of those time consumers that I need to cut out now. While I have no idea when we'll get placed with a child, I don't want to have my teens thinking, "Mom, quit just because of the new kid." if you catch my drift. I am sorry to let any of you down. I really have enjoyed my time designing and getting to know some of you. Please, please follow me and our adventure on my here. Especially when we get our little one. You never know I may even create a kit here and there.

Again, I want to thank each and everyone of you who have said lovely comments, bought my products and made me enjoy designing. A very special thanks goes out to my wonderful CT; Hilly, Landi, Star, San, & Becca. They have been my backbone. One special lady deserves a special thank...Andi. She really was my right hand-gal. She helped make Alamama's Pressed Petals possible. Also, I will be around the digi-forums, I will always be a digi-scrapper first.

I am sad that you are retiring but have to say that I am very impressed (and happy) to hear about your adoption plans. Our younger son has Down Syndrome and I always love to hear such good news. I am sure you will have plenty of joy with your little one and will follow your blog to hear news about your family.
