New Directions

You may or may not have heard, but I thought I would post an "official announcement" here on my blog so there aren't rumors started or strange untrue stories going around.

Last month I resigned from Close To My Heart.  It was a decision that has been years in the making, and something that I took very seriously.  After many tears, long heartfelt discussions with my best friends and my husband, and much prayer, I decided that resigning would be the best decision for my business.

I've been making business decisions far too long based purely on emotion, and the fact is, emotions don't pay the bills.  My leaving is not political in any way.  I dearly love the corporate staff of CTMH, I love my fellow consultants, and of course my customers were the BEST!  The product is amazing too, and I still plan to use CTMH supplies even if I no longer sell them.

Everyone who has heard this news has been very supportive and understanding of this decision.  I'm excited for the future and what new business ventures will come my way.  As of today, my knitting is taking up a HUGE amount of my time and energy and I fully intend to continue marketing my patterns, and selling the finished wares locally and online.  Additionally, I do have a few other ideas in the works, which I will happily reveal as they are ready.

I still plan to post about both knitting and paper crafting, as well as my family, and other random tidbits here on the blog.  I hope you will continue to follow me, or pop in on occasion and catch up on what's going on.

I know how hard it is to make this decision, having done it myself. I know a lot of thought went into it, for sure. I wish you the best of luck as you move forward in your creative endeavors. You'll be a success no matter what you do because you put so much heart into what you are creating. *Ü*
