Saying Good Bye

Saying Good Bye

This is a bittersweet post... I've thought and prayed, wavered for quite a while, but finally, it's decided, I'm saying good-bye to my life as a designer ... sob sob... it's been such a ride, this past year, and especially the last 7 months at GDS, who'd have thought, me a designer!!



I loved it, taking an idea, a few colors, playing with it all and coming up with something beautiful (at least to me!)! I was in creative heaven so to speak, walking, thinking, dreaming design ideas all the time. But unfortunately it was also terribly distracting... especially because I also work outside the home, there was no way I could cope on a long term basis and still focus on all the other parts of my life as I would like to. I feel that the Lord is leading me to this decision, so that I can put my focus back on my family, work, bible study class, sunday school, scrapping, and also, more sleep ! haha!

So here I am, saying a reluctant goodbye...I know i'll still design, for my own layouts, for sharing, and Holly at GDS has graciously said I'm welcome to be a guest designer from time to time, bless her!! So the door is not closed, just a chapter I guess.. that makes this easier. :)

Well so much for all my rambling, thanks for reading so far, in case any of you like to pick up my stuff, everything in the store is 60% off till 15 August !!

Enjoy and do leave me a comment if you like it :) Sorry this is no longer available

  44. Hey Yin.
    I had to do a search to find you again. Working on a layout and thought I had these but must be the laptop so I am back. These are so cool and I have never used a stamp before.
    So big thanks!
