View Full Version : I am retiring - SALE

07-22-2008, 10:42 AM
Hello to you all! I hope that you are staying cool in the insanely hot weather that we have been experiencing.

I am sorry to say, that I am retiring from designing for now. Some things in my life have required more time and effort, and I don't feel it is fair to the community as a whole for me to be as absent as I have been.

To share my goodies with you before I leave, I am running a 55% off sale, ending August 10. Please stop by, as my kits will no longer be available.

Thanks to each of you for your support of me over the last 18 months! I value your friendships, and will do my best to keep in touch. {{hugs}}

Well Jess, I just don't want to say goodbye...

Everyone, if you don't know, you should know that Jess have been such a truly wonderful and devoted member of the the community and GDS Design Team and the inspiration behind so many wonderful programs here such as the Color Challenge and the Lunch Crunch and Jess was the brains behind bringing our Monthly Collab Kit into being which also included her very hard work coordinating the themes as well as all the previews and banners that you have seen every month.

Jess, your straight shootin honesty and true integrity along with all the support and friendship you have brought here to GDS will be sorely missed.

If ever you get the urge, you have a home here with us always at GDS. I personally will miss you greatly and want to say many many thanks for allowing me the opportunity get to work with you.

I know you aren't one for the "mushies"... so I'll say no more...but sincerely I wish you all the very best and hope you keep in touch... no matter where you go or what you do..you're something special and I'm sure success will follow you!

Great Big Hugs to you Jess!
