I've been on a Self-Imposed Hiatus and Now It's Time for a Reboot............

You may have noticed that I've been out of the blog loop for a few months now, and wondering why I'm no longer participating in challenges or posting as consistently as I was.  The truth is during the Spring I began rethinking where I am in life and what I personally want to do. 

I realized that while I'm enthusiastic and passionate about stamping and creating, I'm also passionate about my family and friends and how I spend my time with them. Let's face it, it's not easy to golf when your mind is working on a project deadline.  So, I made some tough choices and re-evaluated how I want to spend my time.  

My first step towards change, was saying farewell to the Watercooler Wednesday and Creative Circle Design Teams, I'd participated on for the past two years. While I always tried to meet the team challenges with gusto and make each project special and appealing for my followers and the design team, my over zealousness in completing my assignments and balancing other parts of my life totally drained my time and energy.  

I had an awesome journey designing with these groups, expanded my paper crafting skills and meeting many new and wonderful friends along the way.  Hopefully through my blog and my projects I succeeded in sharing these adventures and growth with you.

So what's next?   Is this the end of Penny Tokens Stampin' Spot Blog?  Definitely not.  It's still my stamping forum and will continue but its currently under construction.

So please hang in there and don't give up on me while I go through this metamorphosis.  And, thanks in advance for your patience, encouragement and support.  As always....

Happy Stamping!

As the saying goes "a change is as good as a rest". I applaud you for recognizing your need for change/rest, Penny! I've no doubt that you'll continue to share your amazing talents with us, no matter what format that takes. All the best to you, my friend! :)

I admire you for taking time out to decide what's important to you, Penny ... it's not an easy thing to do. While it's liberating once decisions are made, the process itself can be both challenging and tiring ... and takes courage! Thanks so much for the inspiration you've provided over at Watercooler Wednesday ... I've enjoyed playing along with you when I've had the chance. Thanks too for all your kind comments ... it's always lovely to have you come by. Wishing you well with whatever direction you choose to go next ... Anita :)
