Signing Off

 Hello Peeps

Well, my decision was sort of made for me. For a few months I have been wondering if I have the time to devote to this challenge page and if it should continue into 2022. I ended last year undecided.

However, the events of the new year have sort of made it irrelevant. I have had a funny start to the new year with a busy Christmas season, and family events intruding on our time. Then I got a frozen shoulder and could not use a keyboard. 

Some of you may know that my husband is not that well. He is actually physically better than he has been for a while but he has had a diagnosis of dementia. Sorting out the medical care, the legal and financial stuff and taking over the outside jobs and house maintenance, as well as my Uni commitments AND trying to craft was impossible. I am now my husband's Carer: luckily he has  qualified for a Federal Government Level 4 Aged Care plan which we now have nearly in place. One needs a tertiary degree to work all that out, I have decided. So hard to navigate.   Add in a few physical issues on my side and it all imploded. 

So... after all that, Unstampabelles will no longer continue for the time being. It is going into cold storage for the foreseeable future.  I know there are two outstanding winners to be sorted still. I will get to them in the next week. This is the first time I have sat at the computer to do anything other than play a game or scroll through facebook. 

Thank you for all the people who have contacted me with messages. I am OK and hopefully my neck will get better quicker too! Thank you to the people who read the posts and who entered the challenges too. 

A special BIG THANK YOU to my amazing Design Team. So patient and good. I am sorry ladies that this is the end of the team for the time being. Thank you for all your wishes and assistance. 

Everyone - keep safe and stay positive: craft up a storm and send out cards to all your friends!
