a moment of reflection...

it has come to my heart's attention that there are some things that i must put aside for a while... nothing major, at least not in the big scope of things, but something that has taken up a big part of my attention and effort over the past year(s) or so.
I have decided to forgo any new DT opportunities, contests and "TRYING" to go out for publication in the scrapbooking world. It has been a hard decision to make, as i would love to get my name out there and really make a go of this whole thing in a more professional setting. I just don't think that this season of my life allows for such ambition. This is the same realization i came to when i closed my store. it was just the wrong season of life to be giving so much effort to something other than raising my family. I find myself getting caught up in deadlines and pressures that i put on myself, and my family suffers for it. I am no longer gonna do this... that is not to say that i will never submit for publications, it simply means i will no longer specifically create pages to fit any call... if i happen to make a fantastic page and it happens to fit something they are calling for, sure i will give it a go.
I just figure i barely have time to scrap for myself and my family, how in the world could i expect to represent a company and keep up with their demands on my limited scrapping time, designing great things to sell their products? I will remain loyal to MV.com and their generosity and will continue to do my best for them alone... and i am so happy to have that opportunity! But as for the rest of you (wagging my finger)
you will just have to suffer thru without my awesome talents until a later season arrives... sometime when i have more time to devote to being your famous representative! (haha)

and that is my moment of pure sanity and reflection for the week... back to your regularly scheduled craziness!

Mel, I think your stuff rocks. You know what is best for you though and I think that someday, when the time is right for you, you will bring the smackdown to scrapbooking...I just hope you don't forget about little ol' me on the way to the top!
