My dearest friends and loyal kit club subscribers,
After 9 wonderful years of crafting and creating with you, It breaks my heart to tell you that I must suspend Swirlydoos Scrapbook Kit shipments until further notice. As you have undoubtedly noticed, kits shipments have not been running on schedule for the past several months. Many of you have not only been “customers” but we’ve grown to be FRIENDS, and dare I say, many of you have even become, “family.” As such, I feel that I owe you all an explanation.
In May and June of this year, I had to have a ridiculous amount of tests, MRI’s and CT scans after my health began taking some pretty nasty turns. In July, I learned that I was in fact sick, and had been for a very long time. Over the past 3 months, I’ve undergone more testing, to learn that I have extraglandular complications to my bladder, lungs, and my brain, making it extremely difficult to concentrate and focus on work.
I am working diligently with all of my doctors on (even MORE testing) and finding medication regimens that will help me to get back on task, and be able to focus and concentrate on hopefully creating gorgeous kits again. But for now, at this moment, I simply must step back and care for myself, and take the opportunity to spend as much quality time as I can with my family. I’ve never been one to back down from a challenge, and this is no different. I will face this head on, and I will do all I can to be back up and running soon.
Subscribers who are on the 3 month subscription will be receiving their fulfilling kits within the next week, and international subscribers will be receiving their latest kit shipments as well.
In the interim, I will be selling off excess stock of kits, papers, mediums, embellishments, etc at stupid prices to help cover some of the medical costs I’ve incurred. Please keep an eye on the Swirlydoos website, as well as our facebook page and gallery group for great deals on grab bags and boxes!
Swirlydoos has been my baby, my labor of love, my LIFE for the past 9 years. It breaks me to come to terms that I must put it on hold. But please know – the kits may be on hold for now – but YOU are not. I cherish greatly the friendships I’ve made, and the people I’ve come to know and love. Thank you dearly for your inspiration, the laughs, the love and great times we’ve shared. I hope to be crafting with you all again in the near future.
All of my love, and gratitude,
