A Tough Decision!

After much thought about it, I've decided to temporarily shut down my online selling venues. This includes my Etsy shop and my ArtFire shop. I've put both of them in vacation mode indefinitely as of today. Due to the physical and emotional demands of my pregnancy, I just wanted to be able to focus on myself and the arrival of my first child for a little while.

As you can see from the image above, I have felt very loved in my Etsy shop for a long time with over 2,700 hearts. Thank you to everyone who's made my online sales a success!! I do plan to eventually reopen shop, but for now, I feel it is time to put my focus elsewhere. I will still be posting to my blog regularly though as well as sending out a monthly or bi-monthly email newsletter with the latest info and tips. Stay tuned because, although my shops are closed, I will still be around and actively creating as time allows.


  1. I'm sure that was a difficult decision, but one you will feel very good about if you don't already. I think it is very wise of you to focus on you and your baby. Expecting your first child is a special time in your life and one to savor and cherish.

  2. Wow, that is a tough decision. I admire your choice. I wish more children had parents who cared so much about them.

    Sending very best wishes for the rest of your pregnancy!! Keep us posted!

  3. Creating a baby is way more important than creating for your online venues. Enjoy (or at least tolerate) the rest of your pregnancy.

  4. All the best with the remainder of your pregnancy! I look forward to more news of baby as it comes to hand.

    The best thing about this kind of business is that you can put down for a while but it's in your blood so we know you'll be back!

    Take care!
