Goodbye for now...

... as you know, I haven't been blogging half as much as I normally would.
I just popped on over to Bloglovin', to check out you girls' and your new
posts, & felt myself thinking that I'm finding the whole social media thing
with scrapping a bit of a chore right now.
Which is not like me. But I HAVE been blogging and commenting for years
so I'm thinking I might take a bit of a break.
I'm still loving my scrapping ~ & was blessed to get an email from
for publication last week.
I'm not sure what's going on with me. But I'm going with what I feel.
There is a little guilt attached here, cos a lot of you have become quite
close friends & this is how I connect with you!
But I'm on Messenger, so feel free to contact me if you want a chat &
a catch-up:)
I didn't want to just 'disappear' from view....but I think for now I'll just
stick with my Happy Mail & give the rest a rest!!!!
Hope you've enjoyed the photos of some of my latest bits as you
read this post...
so, for now, I will say 'See you later'!!!
Thank you a thousand times for all your kindness, lovely comments,
and support over the years. I really REALLY appreciate it soooo much:)
Blessings ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥

  1. Hi Lizzy! I totally understand about how you feel - it has happened to me and I don't blog and post near as much as I used to. So take care of YOU and if you feel like you want to scrap, do it for fun and not as a chore. Sending HUGS and blessings right back at you. I am going to miss seeing your beautiful creations, but most of all, I am going to miss your sense of humor and your personality! Keep in touch! You are a very special person!!! xoxo

  3. Congrats on all the acceptances for publication Lizzy. Sorry to read that you are finding it all a bit 'meh' at the moment. Understandable though, with the amount of loving support you've provided for years. It can be demanding and it's good that you've decided to take time out to 'Smell the Roses'. There is a time for every season under heaven. Thanks for all the ways you have encouraged and supported me, with warm, wise and witty words. Your kindness has touched my heart. Take care of yourself and God Bless you.

  4. oh no.. sob sob... how can I go on without you?? sob sob.. thank you for all the inspiration and friendship you have given to me... well the friendship will go on forever I am just being a bit dramatic... was it working??? naa didnt think it was very convincing... seriously... i will miss your blog posts and seeing your creations.. so make sure it isnt for too long hey!!!??? love each of these layouts, and I reckon you will continue to create.. I think the longest bit of blogging is the photo taking and editing myself and then putting the post together.. but for me it is also a record of my layouts as i am hoping those albums that are mounting up in the Colorado will go with their owners one day.. so I understand that bit.. so it is NOT goodbye, but see you soon.... lots of love...xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  5. Do what makes you happy Lizzy and if a break from it all is what you need then take it and don't feel one minute of guilt. Sometimes we just need to do what feels right for us. Love your pages but then again I always do :)

  15. Hey lizzy - you know I totally get it cuz I did exactly the same at the end of last year. It started to feel as though I had no time to just enjoy life with my kids because I was trying to record every second! Enjoy stepping back for a while, enjoy your gorgeous family and take some 'me' time ��
    Hey and huge congrats on 8 LOs for publucation - wow ��

  18. Oh I totally understand your point of view Lizzy!
    You have to listen to your instinct.
    Having said that, your layouts are very beautiful and inspiring.
    I would miss you and them if you were to take too long of a break...
    Oh and also, you were born to wear red lipstick!

  20. I'm so sorry to hear your lovely inspiring posts aren't going to be popping up in my reader! But I certainly do understand how you are feeling. You have provided so much cheery support and inspiration over the years that a rest is more than well deserved. I'm hoping maybe I'll still see you on IG? I'm finding it a lot less time consuming than blogging

  30. Awesome layouts! Glad you are still creating a storm though.
    I know how you feel. I haven't been blogging as much either but still try to post at least twice a week because I know once I stop completely, I'd probably abandon my blog...lol. As it is, I do batch commenting because it is just so hard to do it everyday.
    Enjoy your life!

  31. Wow, what fabulous layouts!! I always adore your work, Lizzy. It's so easy to get burned out on social media. I know I go through phases on where I'm spending more time posting and commenting. At the moment It's Facebook, but I'm trying to get back into commenting on blog posts again. Huge congrats on the publications!! ~ Blessings, Tracey

  34. Hi there Lizzy...taking a break sometimes is exactly what is needed, as you know, that is what I did. It's great to dabble when the mood strikes, and yet, do the other things that your life is calling you to do. ENJOY! Hugs!
