A Lovely Farewell...

Greetings my dear friends!!!  I'm here today with a bit of explaining, some fun and a few creations to bid you a bloggy farewell for a short while while I embark upon a new adventure, of sorts! 

My darling friends and teammates at DYSU have organized an amazing blog hop as way to say adieu as I am stepping down from the team.  (sniff, sniff)  I first and foremost want to thank them for this amazing send off as well as my wonderful time that I spent with them on the team.  It was one of the most organized, well thought out, kind, compassionate and caring group of women that I've ever had the pleasure of creating with.  I will miss you all GREATLY but as time goes on I promise to come back and create with y'all when I can!!  Hugs my friends and many, many thank yous to you all!!!

As some of my crafty friends have noticed...my blog has been VERY quiet and getting increasingly more so as the weeks have gone on.  I have resigned (albeit tearfully) from all of the fabulous teams that I was on.  While I cannot share the news ~ just yet (wink) ~ I will say that it has to do in a way with my health (I am TOTALLY fine) but require more time to spend with my darling husband and two amazing kiddies as well as time to care for myself.  With school starting less than two weeks away, I want to spend every single moment with my babies before my daughter heads off to second grade and my son to Kindergarten.  The time is precious and few. 

I am sure that once everyone is settled in school, I will have a little time to dabble creatively here and there but will be more focused on some mini albums for my kids as well as catching up on some scrappy projects that have been waiting for me very patiently.  I will post every now and again so please don't forget about me as I surely will not forget about you all.  I will definitely come by and visit and comment when I can and will for sure get back into the crafty world when it's my time.  But for now...it's farewell to my daily creating and blogging.  Be sure to keep me posted on anything fun and I will come by and say "hello!!" 

And so, without further ado, I am going to leave you with some of my favorite projects that I created while on the DYSU team. 

Thank you my friends for everything!!  See you soon!!

With Many Crafty Hugs!
Meredith

Hey Meredith, I'm sorry to see you step down from DYSU and all your other positions. I hope I'll still see you around at MFT. Your work is fabulous and inspiring I'd hate to not see it at all. Of course you have to take care of yourself and your family so I hope you get to squeeze some crafting in there.
