Hi Everyone! Happy Wednesday! Hope you all are having a great week!
I have made a hard decision regarding the WEE MEMORIES CHALLENGE. Now that I am illustrating I am finding it so hard to keep up with the challenge each week. It's become more of a job than fun for me and it takes allot of time away from my family. After 2 GREAT years its time for it to come to an end.
This economy has made it really hard to get new sponsors and keep the regular sponsors as well. Everyone is doing budget cuts in these tough economic times. Plus the added cost of mailing prizes keeps going up and international postage costs are very expensive for me because I pay them out of my own money.
I just feel like the challenge has run its course after 2 years. I am having such a hard time keeping up especially because I work full time, have a family and illustrate now plus my design team commitments. I also can never submit to magazines cause I dont ever have time and I would really like to start doing that too. 2012 brings new goals for me and letting go of Wee Memories was the toughest ever!
January 28th will be our final challenge as we say goodbye. Please know this wasn't easy for me at all, but I must think of my health and my family. I prayed and thought about this long and hard and talked to some friends about it too and I just think it is whats best. I really need to focus on my health as well, with the Anemia and my back issues, I really want to get myself healthy again.I really really HOPE you all understand the need for my decision.
And I want to say a BIG, HUGE THANK YOU to my Design Team for their amazing creations and hard work each week. They are an AMAZING group of ladies!! :) :) And I love each of you!!
I WILL STILL BE DOING LOTS OF GIVEAWAYS from my sponsors and my stamps still so I hope you will continue to follow me and stick around for the AMAZING things coming SOON!
Thank you all for your support of Wee Memories and making it such a great challenge! My girls and I will miss it so much! But I am looking forward to a great future with my Blog!!
HUGS and LOVE to you all!!
Thank you for understanding and your support!
