A friend of mine said, "Susie, I was beginning to worry because I hadn't seen anything posted on your blog since March 11th." Dear friends, please forgive me for not letting you know that I needed to take a little rest from my blog.
The school year is about to end and that means a little vacation for Nana B. After creating for Sweet n Sassy Stamps for 8 months, and designing for Splitcoaststampers (for 5 months) my current term is about to come to an end, and I will join the ranks as one of their alumni designers. It is time to enjoy my regular schedule of creating on my time frame (much slower these days), and dabbling in some new trends. Have you seen some of the beautiful watercolor cards lately *sigh* Art journaling? Stencils and mixed media? Photography? There just aren't enough hours in the day! Not to mention I am taking some time to do a little container gardening as well.
I've gone back and forth with whether to maintain my blog and keep writing or give it up. I think I'd like to keep my blog, but, I feel like I need a change; an update of sorts. Summerwalk Designs has always had a lovely ring to it. It was a first season of stepping back into the creative world for me. But seasons come and go and it's time for something that seems more fitting for multiple medias. I've decided to give the blog a new look and change the name to: Sincerely Susie ~ Hopefully that will happen by the end of June. Keep your fingers crossed (she smiles).
I'll be popping in and out throughout the summer with a variety of sweet offerings. From cards, photographs, altered art projects, maybe something from my art journal, and maybe... some hand sewn projects. I will still be uploading to Splitcoaststampers and hope to play in more of the weekly challenges, plus trying some new techniques.
I'd like to share the cards I've created during my term as a designer for Splitcoaststampers too, but, that will have to wait for another month. I think you'll enjoy the creations as much as I enjoyed creating them. This past year has been a dream come true for me - a God sized dream. I'd like to thank Korin Sutherland, from Sweet n Sassy Stamps, and Lydia, from Splitcoaststampers for giving me the opportunity of a life time. The experience stretched me in so many ways, and I know I will continue to benefit in the future from what I've learned.
I'll see you next time. Until then, may your day be filled with blessings.
