It is with a very heavy heart that I announce that I have sold my company, Time To Stamp.
As some of you are aware, I have a child who needs alot of care and has a myriad of appointments. I have tried SO hard to balance everything out. It is rare for me to have any time for myself-that has made me extra stressed out and a mess. I have been doing alot of re-evaluating and have come to realize that I need to take care of myself better, and that something needed to go. Unfortunately it had to be the business. Part of my heart is broken right now. I know there will be a grieving process. But at the same time, I look so forward to being able to have less pressure in my life and that I can do more of what I love: art. Stamping for fun......my collages......whatever I want to do. Usually when my daughter was at school in the mornings I was generally doing business stuff and IF I had time, I could do some stuff for me.
Unfortunately that has not happened for a while. I am finding that with all she requires, its SO necessary for me to take care of myself, so I can take care of her. There are some mornings I get going so much that I don't even eat any breakfast. That should change. I can go back to the gym and get some of those happy endorphins going on too! :)
I have been pretty burned out lately by life in general. With a little pampering and some time for myself, I will be back to the old Kristy in no time at all.
This past week and a half, I have watched my husband's grandfather die. As I sat there with him for hours, and saw him in that state it made me do alot of thinking. It made me realize how truly short life is. Its SO important that we enjoy the time we have as it can be taken from us at any given moment. Its SO important for us to do what we love. Thats what I want to do.
I will still be around-I look forward to doing some things I have wanted to do for a long time.
I have a list! :) I will be posting more art here , thats for sure.
I am SO thankful for the wonderful friends I have made and great experiences I have had while in the stamp industry. I have learned SO much that I would have never learned had I not owned this business. I will be forever grateful.
The transfer will take place in a couple of weeks. I know that day will be hard. But I will get through it some how.
The buyer is very excited about it and has the same concerns with service that I do. Rest assured she will take care of my customers-she has promised me :) I will still be around it-these stamps are my babies-a big part of me that I will always be connected to.
