Fluttering into the sunset

I don't know how to write this post other than to just say it so here it goes~~

It saddens me to announce that I am closing Flutter By Wednesday's--effective immediately.

I have LOVED hosting this challenge. LOVED all of my design team members-present and past- and LOVED all the participants but life is ever changing and sometimes things just need to be let go.

I recently had to make the decision to go back to work after being at home for 13+ years. My time will be limited and I just don't think I will have the energy, desire or time to keep FBW going.

Thank you all for the years of fluttering fun and I hope you'll still stop by my blog now and then to say hey and share with me some fluttering creations!!

Big fluttery hugs to you all!!

I am so sorry that you are closing. I had to work all my life from 15 up till now when at 68 I am retired so I understand.
I have enjoyed doing the challenges when I could as I love fairies and butterflies. I wish you well for your future.

I am so sad to hear this, but am thankful for the joy that this has brought you. I admire you for making this tough choice and putting your family first. i know that when a door closes a window opens. I know that this next chapter in your life will be an awesome one! Best of luck.

Hi Danni, wow, what a hard decision that had to have been for you - but the right one I'm sure. I went back to work, part time, a yr ago and thought "Ahh, I'll have time to do this, that and the other .. " Well, I don't have as much as I thought, so I completely understand where you're coming from. Good luck with your new job and all the new and good things to come!
