Taking a Break

With much thought I have decided to close my website down for 1 month to take a much needed break. We will re open Aug 10 with lots of new products. I'm really looking forward to being able to blog more during my break. For such a long period of time now I just never seemed to have the time to do much blogging. I first had to give up doing the linky party's due to lack of time then my blogging drop off after that. I commend all of you that are able to keep up with everything. I'm hoping to get a little more organized during this month I know that will help me have more time. Wish me luck on that, as I have never been organized.... but better late than never.

I will show a few peeks through the month of a few of the new items that will be listed on our website when we open back up. This sweet pillow above is just one of them!
I have to say as much as I love what I do I'm very excited to have this time off. It will give me extra time to play with my sweet grandkids and get some things done that I just never seem to have time to do before.
I wish I could say this month would be just about spending time with family and resting, but I have so many projects that need to be done at home and at the lake house that I just never seem to have time to do what needs to be done, so this break with give me a chance to do just that.
The kids love coming over to the lake house, this day they enjoyed swimming and then just playing in the yard. Later that night I played cards with my grandson and had even more fun.... except for the fact that he beat me in every game.
Grandkids are amazing I could watch this sweet little one roll around in the grass all day. They are such a joy! I have decided to take a break like this once a year and smell the roses! I'll be back soon to show a few updates of the lake house. We finally got our new drapes hung this past week and I'm waiting for the drapes for the other house today.... can't wait to see them up.

I'm glad to hear you are taking a break and "stopping to smell the roses", Daphne! Time just goes by so fast.

I am not sure how those who blog on a daily basis do it either. Life is short and you are wise to take time to watch those sweet babes roll in the grass. I always enjoy reading your blog and seeing all the pretty things you and Lynda create. Have fun, don't work too hard, the month will fly right by.

These are the best kinds of breaks to have ... kid-lings. Enjoy, Daphne.

Come take a peek at what we just got in ... you may be interested in them.

Have missed you so look forward to many chats.

We all need a break sometimes. You work hard, and deserve it. Have a good one.

Never feel the need to apologize for spending time with the family or just being. Work is necessary...true, but so is laughter. If the only thing you get accomplished for the next month is a ton of hugs, kisses and losses at cards...I'd say that's worth a million dollars.
Enjoy your time in the sun.

Have a great time with the grand kids. I am enjoying every single moment with my little guy. I tell my daughter all the time that if I'd known grand kids were such funny I'd of had him first!(I'm sure she loves that!)LOL
Enjoy! Can't wait to see the updates to the houses and the new line.

Good for you! We all need to kick back every once in a while.
I hope you spend a couple of days doing nothing at all!
