Gonna take a little designing break...

I won't be gone for long so don't forget about me :). The thing about me, as I'm sure many of you will relate to, is that I don't have hobbies....I have obsessions! When I get involved in something I enjoy, I tend to dedicate my every spare minute to it(even the minutes that aren't spare but should be used for other things like laundery, LOL!). It's been so long since I browsed galleries and digi stores or even made a layout. I'm not going to take a complete break from designing because I need that creative outlet but I'm going to try to limit my computer time to evenings for a bit. I have a couple ideas for my next kit that I'm going to work on while I'm on a blog break. So on that note, I will be back in a week or maybe two with goodies! I may post some layouts in the meantime since I haven't even had a chance to use Playful Plaid yet, LOL! Thank you again for leaving such super comments they mean so much to me! I will be back soon!

I just wanted to thank you for your beautiful Playful Plaid Kit. I picked it all up today and I was very impressed with the previews. Very nice work.

I totally understand about obsession thing! That is EXACTLY how I am with my "hobbies." And that's a great way to explain it. Anyway, I'll look forward to you coming back, but enjoy your break. I'm trying to take a break myself (but from scrapping, no designing here yet). Thanks for your lovely work!

Everyone needs a mind break, a vacation break, or just a break. You definitely deserve all of the above. So glad to hear that you are taking time out for yourself. I definitely understand because I know how I am with "so called hobbies, work, life." Obsessive to say the least. Well, since physical disabilities stepped in & stopped me in my tracks, I have no other choice. Again, have fun. I will still stop by to comment on your layouts & journaling whenever I can. I have a system, & will keep it going. 'SMILE.' HAVE FUN WITH YOUR NEXT ENDEAVER, YOU HAVE EARNED IT!!!

Oh Chris, I can totally relate. And no matter how good my intentions, this darn computer and digi scrapping just lures me back in! LOL

You will be missed, if only for a week or two that you're catching up on the housework and making layouts. Your digi treasures are so wonderful and I can't wait to see what you'll do next.

Hope you have a great "break"..although, if you are anything like me, you will just FILL that time with some other obsession!! LOL! :) Thank you so much for all of your wonderful creations and for sharing your talents so generously!!!!! I know what you mean about digi-scrapping...you get so caught up in the many aspects that you forget to actually do layouts! Arrrggghh! LOL! See ya when we see ya! :)

You are EXTREMELY TALENTED! Thank you so much for these kits! I was first turned to your blog when I saw a fantastic dog LO in the DST gallery. I am looking forward to working with your kits! Thanks again ~ Trina, MtEmilyScrapper
