When tragedy strikes, you never know how you will react. I've been feeling the nudge of the Lord in a few areas of my life, and the tragic loss of my dear brother has opened my eyes to my priorities. I need to reorganize my priorities and listen to what the Lord is calling me to do. Rather, He called me to a job that I lost sight of. He's not called me to a new one, which means I'm supposed to be about the work he called me to 12 years ago! Namely, homeschooling my children and being a light to other homeschooling families.That said, the Lord also created in me a desire to create. I won't abandon my creative outlet, but I do need to scale it back. So, dear blogging friends, that means that I've had to drop a few of my design teams, scale back on others, and for now, stop teaching papercrafting locally. I need time to grieve my brother, strengthen my faith walk and my marriage, connect with my children, and re-connect with my extended family. Since there are only 24 hours in a day, I need to scale back my crafting life.
I will remain on the following teams: Graphic45, CropStop, Apron Strings Designs, and 365 Cards. So, starting later this week or early next, I'll begin posting projects again. I'll start with Graphic45 CHA projects, since those were completed weeks ago. I'll be back on the 365 Cards schedule starting August 16th, then the CropStop and ASD schedules starting in September.
Again, thank you all for your love and support. I cannot possibly thank each of you in person, but know that I appreciate YOU!
I am also working on a special project to benefit my nephew, Ethan. I'll have more information on how you can help in a week or so.
