Using the pause button

I had to make a tough decision this past weekend regarding my Etsy shop. And I have decided to put the online store on hold until the Summer of 2008.

I've put in so much time and effort into starting the shop, learning the ropes, etc., while my personal life was on hold. I need to take a break, get things back in order, and then come back to the store. Etsy has been fabulous, but it does take a fair amount of time to promote the shop. Time that I can't spare until things are normal again.

Therefore, the online store will not be stocked up with inventory as it usually is. Instead, I will be taking small custom orders, so as not to abandon the customers that I've been so fortunate to meet over the last 12 months. So, if you wish to purchase/order cards, etc., please feel to contact me via email: amiedesigns@yahoo.ca

But, I do plan to blog about my creations during the break. I am hoping to get back to the scrapbooking as my creative outlet, so there will be pictures.

For my few readers....Thank you for coming by today, and please keep checking in, as I am sure that this blog will have to be the replacement for my daily internet fix.


  1. I hope that this break will give you time to get back to the things that are most important. It can be hard to step away sometimes, but I hope that it works out well! Good luck!!!

  2. It's Summer '08!
    And the holidays will be here, soon.
