My Big Announcement: I'm Retiring

Those are some words I'm shocked to be typing to all of you. I'm still surprised that I'm actually going through with it and retiring from designing. However, due to some personal situations in my family, I'm over-extended, over-stressed, and overwhelmed. This decision isn't one I came to lightly, but it is one that I'm confident in.

I have loved designing for the past 2+ years. I love 9th&Bloom. I love all the fabulous friendships I've made as a result. I love seeing your creations with my products, talking with all of you via this blog, facebook, and twitter. I love this little digiscrap world. That's why I don't plan to leave digiscrapping entirely. At heart, I'm a scrapper first, and I need to get back to that. I'll be around in the forums, and I plan to leave this blog (and all the freebies on it!) intact. Just look for more personal and scrapping posts from me rather than design related team posts. My facebook fan page...I'm still not sure what to do with it, so I just may do nothing for a while. It will be around through May 31 at the very least. My Twitter account will also remain active, though look for me to change user names soon. All in all, I'll still be "around," just in a different capacity.

I suppose you're looking for the good part? Check this out...a super fabulous retirement sale, effective immediately and running through May 31, 2011.


This is a pretty awesome sale, right? These products are leaving for good, so if you need anything, be sure to grab it by May 31st.

Finally, I want to thank my Creative are the best group of girls and I'm so proud to have been able to work with each and every one of you. I love you all and wish you so much happiness! To 9th&B, Lizzy, Holly, and my fellow designers...I'm going to miss you guys! Thanks so much for having me, believing in me, and understanding why I have to go. You guys are amazing! To my "fans," THANK YOU!!! Thank you for being supportive, for enjoying my products, and for coming along with me on this journey. I appreciate you all and am so blessed to have been part of your scrapping lives. Take care.

Jen, I've been a bit out of touch and I just saw this today. I know that had to be a tough decision. Best of luck to you and I hope and pray that things settle down soon.

As a creative team member for several digital scrapbook designers, I have received their products for free in return for creating and posting projects (digital layouts, hybrids projects, etc). Many of the layouts you see here were done in conjunction with requirements for these creative teams. Please be advised that the products used were indeed received for free.
