It is with a heavy heart that I am announcing the closure of my shop here at The Lilypad, effective December 31st. This has been a really difficult decision for me, even though I know in my heart I have made the right choice saying goodbye is still very bittersweet for me, especially as I have been here at TLP from the start! I am not retiring from designing, nor am I moving to another store. I will be simplifying by focusing on my site and taking time to get back into the rhythm of creating again at my own pace. Many thanks for all the friendship and support you have shown me over the last thirteen years here, I’ll still be hanging around in the forum and gallery every now and then (you don’t get rid of me that easily!) so I will see you there! I wish you all all the very best for a happy, healthy and creative 2020!
