Yes, I'm saying goodbye, of course not to all of you wonderful folk at GDS, just to life as a designer....

The last seven months as a designer here has been a fantastic and wonderful ride! Your support has enabled me to have the confidence and joy to keep designing. I never imagined it could happen, me, a designer! In fact, it was so fun and addictive, I was walking, thinking, dreaming designs all the time in my head :) ... After much prayer and thought I feel the Lord is leading me to put a pause to my designing, so that I can place much needed focus back on my family, work, service in church, and scrapping too. And getting more sleep! :D

Thank you everyone for your kind words and support always, I really appreciate every one of you so much! :love-smiley-011: You made it all possible!

Lastly if there is any more of my stuff you'd like to pick up, my entire store will be on 60% off until 15 August. Thank you!!

*sniff *sniff.....Yin, you already know how i feel about you resigning from designing altogether but I figure I'll tell you once more! I so loved your designs and your cheerful friendship here at GDS. Looking forward to still seeing you around GDS and hopefully coming back as a guest designer from time to time girly!

Awww, Yin! I am so sad to see you go. But I completely understand the pull to focus on your family and I can't help but respect that.

Best of luck in your next endeavor. You'll still be around GDS, right?! :biggrin:

Dear Yin, while I don't know you, I can't help but admire you tremendously. While designing is tempting, your choice to put family first is a good one that will pay dividends in the long run. Glad you'll still be around the forums here, and best wishes raising that family.

Oh thank you ladies for all your kind words and wishes! You are really tempting me to change my mind ..haha!! Yes, I definitely will stay and join in the fun (without the pressure) as Barbara said. And dear Holly said I can come back as guest designer from time to time .. I definitely will if the bug bites! Just want to add that I've found Holly and Deb to be wonderful owners to work with, without whom I couldn't last so long, thanks Holly and Deb for your support throughout. *woot
