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!
