…Did You Think I Was Gone For Good?

I’m still here!  I’ve been enjoying a long and wonderful summer with my hubby and boys, but they had to go back to school today.Sad smile After spending the summer vacation free of deadlines, stress, and drama I’ve decided that I will no longer be stamping.  It was a fabulous hobby that was fun and very fulfilling while it lasted, but the time has come to let it go and start another adventure.  I will always be thankful and appreciative to all of my faithful and precious followers, and I will miss you more than the stamping and creating!  You all made every moment worthwhile.

With that being said, I am here to let you all know that I will be having a HUGE everything-must-go stamp sale starting tomorrow.  After I have sold all of the stamp sets I will begin selling off all of my cardmaking accessories: cardstock, patterned papers, ribbons, etc.  As soon as the sales page is ready to view, I will add another post above this one announcing the official sale and the link to the page with all of the information you’ll need to get started shopping.

Thanks again for a wonderful ride, and for your sweet and loyal friendships.  I will miss you all!

:( I am excited for you and hope that you will come back and visit your blog every now and then and keep everyone up to date. Your creations were just beautiful and I absolutely LOVED reading your posts. On the other hand, I will miss seeing your lovely artwork on a regular basis :(

Sad to hear that we won't be blessed by your beautiful stamped creations - maybe there will be other works of art in the future in some other medium? All the best....

Oh Mercy, what a wonderful example you are to know when it's time to move on. Truly inspiring indeed! You will be missed, I stalked often and drooled always over your fabulous and innovative ideas. Sending you a huge hug for all your future endeavors!!

Hi Mercy... Yes I had wondered if and when you would comeback to us :0))))... I totally understand your decission to put your priority in order.. As I my self took the last few weeks off to focus on my family and get some things in order... I agree with the other ladies, that it is sad that we won't have more of your "gorgeous" creations and 'awesome" tutorials to oogle over.

Now I will have to admit that I can't wait for your "Sale" list... hehehe,,,, The very Best of Blessings to you and your Family

From cards to cooking maybe? Will miss your amazing creations, Mercy, and your sketches. Loved how you could dress them up or dress them down. Glad to hear you have enjoyed a stress free summer and I wish you all the best on your new ventures (((hugs))).

I'm going to miss your talent so much, Mercy! Whatever you choose to do, I know it will be fabulous! Hugs and take care, girl!!! xxx

Andrea said...

I will miss your beautiful creations but I have to admit they paled in comparison to actually meeting the beautiful Mercy. I am so happy we got to meet in person and how much I just loved you on the spot. Family must always come first and if a hobby stops being fun...then it is time to walk away. Good for you for having the strength to know what you need to live a fulfilled happy life. I adore you and will continue to look forward to whenever you do post on facebook and still hope to see you again some time so that we can just laugh our butts off together. xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoox

Elaine M said...

Oh heartbreaker!! I have always loved your blog and you've been such an inspiration. Looking forward to your sale - hope you have pics with the stamp names. Good luck in your next adventure and please let us hear from you.

Ida said...

Gosh I'm not sure just what to say as I'm at a loss as to how one gives up "completely" something they so enjoyed and excelled at. Your art work was fabulous and pleased and inspired many people.
I do respect your decision even though I don't understand it.
May God Bless you in whatever new venture your life takes you.
You will be missed.

We'll definitely miss you :-( But it's an understandable thing. I wish nothing but the best for you in your future. I bet spending more time with your family will be a Wonderful thing!!! :-)

Julie said...

Well, this is pretty much the crappiest thing I've read all week. LOL! Mercy, you know how much I love you and your work and I'm just sad as can be about your departure. Good luck to you in your future endeavors! I'll miss you, girl!
