Sorry I am AWOL

Hi everyone,

Welcome to my blog. Thanks so much for popping in to see me. Just thought I'd drop in here and apologise for my recent absence from posting on here and YouTube. Thanks to all of you who have contacted me - I'm absolutely fine but just recently my priorities have changed a bit. As some of you know, for several years I have run my two businesses concurrently - my Stampin' Up! business and my quilled cards business - Paper Daisy Cards. Up until recently I devoted more than 50% of my time to Stampin' Up! even though the income from Paper Daisy Cards was far greater. Paper Daisy Cards just ticked along quietly in the background and sales came in without me needing to give it much attention. However with the downturn in the economy and the cost of living crisis, I'm finding that I need to devote a bit more time to my quilled cards to increase sales, which have fallen off recently. As this is my more profitable income stream, I need to concentrate on that for a while. I'm currently opening a shop on a new platform which you can find HERE. It isn't fully stocked yet but getting there!

Combined with that I have just found that my Stampin' Up! mojo has upped and left. I'm sure it will return at some point but meanwhile Stampin' Up! is taking a back seat. Whenever I have time/motivation I might be surprising you with a new project but generally things will be a lot quieter around here for a couple of months. Thanks for your understanding!

However I do have a few copies of the new mini catalogue which went live on 6th September left. Anyone who has shopped with me since January this year has already been sent their free copies but if you don't yet have a copy, just let me know and I'll pop one in the post to you. 

Also just to say, I am still really appreciative of each and every order I receive and am still showing my appreciation by sending a thank you package to each and every customer. Use my code and you'll also receive a free product gift.

Thanks for reading. Love to you all.

Bye for now,

  1. Morning: I am sad to read this but you have to do what makes you happy and of course you need to be financially secure. However, I am glad that you will still be an inspiration to me all the way over in Australia. Thank you for sharing your wonderful talent with us all. XXX Mal

  2. Thanks Mal. I'll hopefully be back before too long!
