Taking the Summer off

Hi everyone!! I'm feeling okay at the moment, but almost didn't make it home from the pediatrician. I got sick on the way home and had to call for help, lol. But, I managed to make it home with Audrey just fine.

I'm sad to say that I have to take the summer off from all design work. I've already turned down a couple of personal projects. :( The good news is, upon reflection... I am proud to have accomplished my goals before this break. For 2009, aside from getting on all the wonderful design teams, I wanted to be published... and not just in e-zines. Over the weekend, I sent off everything for 2 cards to be published in CardMaker 2010! I am super excited and feel like I can really relax and enjoy the break now that this have been achieved. :D

Thank you all for your continuous love and support, I miss everyone - my Hero Arts friends, the lovely ladies of Caardvarks, the talented group from msB, the super supportive SCS sistahs, the many readers who continue to leaving me encouraging comments here ... I'll be back before the summer ends!

  2. It sounds like you REALLY need to take this rest and I'm so glad you are listening to your body! Congrats on reaching those goals - when you are ready to come back, do it slowly! I know you are so talented that it puts you in great demand - and thus under a lot of pressure.

    Enjoy your summer!
