View Full Version : Time to say goodbye...

11-14-2009, 09:43 PM
Ladies, I've been putting off this moment for as long as I could. I haven't been here long, but I feel like this is "home." The time has come for me to retire from digiscrap designing, at least for the time being. I hope to come back to it someday, as this is a dream come true for me, but sometimes dreams have to wait until you have time. I've got little ones who need more time than I've had lately.

So this is goodbye for now. But not forever, I hope! :) You'll probably see me around here, popping into challenges now and then -- I can't stay away from scrapping!

But there's good news too! My entire store (excluding collabs) will be 50% off until it closes indefinitely on November 30th. Even if I do come back someday, there's no guarantee you'll ever see these kits again! So if you've been hemming and hawing about any of my kits, now's the time! :)

Speaking of my kits -- did you notice that my DSD grab bag has finally split open? You can now grab the various pieces individually -- and at a pretty decent price with the sale going on!

Here's what's "new" in store:

Happy Scrapping!!

Awww, too bad for us, but we understand. Family needs come first. Thanks for a great sale!

11-15-2009, 12:10 AM
Sorry to see you go but yes! family is so important. Good luck and look forward to seeing you around and hopefully one day returning.

11-15-2009, 04:51 AM
Sad to see you go, but completely understand (that is why I gave up designing too!)

Hope you will still stay around :)

11-15-2009, 05:04 AM
Oh no - another leaving!!!
Take care!

11-15-2009, 06:22 AM
We will miss you, please stop by to say hi when you can. I can only imagine the enormous toll that creating and selling the kits must have on your personal life. I know that the time that I have spent lately just digiscrapping has been enormous. You will be missed. I will probably snatch some more stuff up before your store closes, thanks for the sale. I LOVE this grab bag and bought it before it was split up. Take care of yourself and your family. *big hugs*

11-15-2009, 08:44 AM
Oh, I am sorry to see you leave designing
but, with my own little one keeping me hopping, I know how tough it is to even think sometimes

I wish you all the best and hope to see you in the gallery!

11-15-2009, 08:47 AM
So sad to see you go, but I can appreciate your decision...family first!!

11-15-2009, 09:23 AM
Best wishes to you kimi, thanks for the progressive challenges and the awesome
bonuses you gave out. You will be missed!

11-15-2009, 10:37 AM
We are so sad to see you leave Kimi. Love your designs. I am definitely going to do some shopping. Hope we see you around and that once your little ones have grown a bit you can come back to designing.

11-15-2009, 10:41 AM
I, too, am so sad to see you leave Kimi. Your designs are fabulous and I hope you come back to it one day when your little ones are bigger. I understand that they need to come first, though. I will surely miss you and wish you all the best. Hope you'll pop in from time to time to say hello.

11-15-2009, 10:56 AM
Thanks for all the great kits and fun challenges, you will be missed!

11-15-2009, 01:30 PM
I left you a boo hoo message on your blog. Sure am going to miss you. Enjoy that little one as they grow up way too quickly:bye:

11-15-2009, 02:19 PM
Sniff, sniff....I'm still in denial :(

11-15-2009, 02:26 PM
Best of luck - Sad to see you going. We'll miss you.

11-15-2009, 02:44 PM
So sorry you are leaving, but you have to do what is right for your family! Does that mean the progressive challenge will be gone again soon too?

11-15-2009, 02:52 PM
The progressive challenge is on the table for now. I hope someone chooses to pick it up again!!

11-15-2009, 09:00 PM
I still have that rope ready to tie you down and not let you go! I'll miss you girly! :cry:

11-16-2009, 01:46 AM
So sorry to hear that Kimi. You need to put family first, always. I've been thinking about your doodlebug kit so I better get over to the store. I really enjoyed all your kits and challenges.

11-16-2009, 11:26 AM
Awwww! Everyone seems to be leaving and each time I get sadder and sadder :( Kimi, you'll be very missed and I have loved your designs and the progressive challenges! Hopefully we'll see you around and have fun with the little ones.

11-16-2009, 11:34 AM
Kimi, you are awesome. I've enjoyed your challenges, your personality and your kits. Glad to know you'll still be dabbling when time permits. I totally understand when the demands of life change and you have to change with them! Best wishes!

11-16-2009, 11:36 AM
We are very sad to see you going, Kimi... Thank you for all of your hard work here at GDS!

Best wishes for you and your family!

Life does get in the way sometimes for the things we enjoy to do. Family is definitely a number one priority and I'm sure they'll benefit from it. Enjoy and don't be a stranger. Sorry to see you go!

11-16-2009, 04:47 PM

gonna miss you in the challenges and the store ...
but totally understand the need to step back and spend more time with you family.

Hope you come back here when you can.

11-16-2009, 07:52 PM
I really like your style, so I hope you get to come back as a designer again someday. I understand completely, and I am glad you will have more time with your little ones. Life is too short, and they grow up so fast.

11-20-2009, 05:20 PM
So sad to see you go, but little ones come first. Hope to still see you around here though!

11-20-2009, 05:53 PM
Awwww, I'm sad, but I completely understand your reasons. Good luck to you!

11-20-2009, 08:28 PM
Kimi ... I so love your designs ... I'm sure the decision-making process caused you some stress. Now that the decision has been made, just rest easy and know that you're doing what is best for your family ... kids grow up so fast! I wish I could smoosh mine back down, because I so loved being a Mama to my babies. You will be missed so much ... I hope you'll find the time to digi scrap and hang around with us some still. In instances like this, "ripping the bandaid off slowly" is much preferred!

Take care,

11-20-2009, 08:37 PM
Goodness Kimi! Your last day is coming up too fast! I'm going to miss collabing with you and will be patiently waiting for your return.

11-21-2009, 04:53 AM
Sad to see you go! Best Wishes and hope to see you here when you can. Happy Holidays!!

11-21-2009, 08:06 AM
I'm very sad that one of my favorite designers is leaving. :bye::sad44:

I hope we see you back here soon! Thanks for all the great stuff, Kimi!

11-29-2009, 11:03 PM
Thank you all for your sweet words. *hugs*

Today is the last day of the sale. Just a reminder. :) If I do come back, most of these kits will never be seen again, so if there's anything you're waffling on... I have marked everything down to $1 each for this last day, except those items that were already below a dollar with the 50% off sale, which are still that same price. Snag 'em quick. :)

11-29-2009, 11:37 PM
Bye Kimi, I hope you will pop in once and a while! Thx for your support, your kind words and your great talent.

11-30-2009, 04:09 PM
I just was in looking and nothing is at a sale price. Guess I missed out. Bummers. We will miss you Kimi. Hope you do come back to visit.

11-30-2009, 04:13 PM
Cathy-- I'm glad you said something! The sale should still be on. Apparently the site thinks it's already tomorrow. *lol* I extended the sale an extra day and it's back on (but everything will still be gone whenever Holly/Debra deactivate my store tonight).

11-30-2009, 06:16 PM
Sorry to see you go. I really enjoyed buyine and using your kits.

I also really appreciated the great sale on them this month, which allowed me to purchase more.

I wish the best for you and hope to see you come back to designing at some point in the future.

11-30-2009, 06:30 PM
Aww... A sad time indeed. Hope your time away is not too long, Kimi. You're so very talented! I have loved everything you've designed here. May things go well for you. You will be missed. Take care!

Thanks Kimi. I am downloading my goodies now. We will miss you. Hope you pop in and keep us posted on how you are doing.
