I have decided to temporarily close PaperBride and PaperMama. I need to take some time and recharge. Last year was really difficult and I am still reeling.
My husband and I split up last year and are currently in the process of getting a divorce. While I still believe in marriage and LOVE weddings and brides and all that yummy stuff, it's been hard. The last thing I want to do is peruse wedding blogs and magazines while on the phone with the law firm of That's Mine, This Is Yours.
I have some great (in my opinion) ideas for new cards and products but right now I feel like I am pushing too hard with so little left to give and need to take a step, or 2, back in order to recharge and let things simmer and percolate to the top. To that end, I am taking myself on a European vacation and will be back later this spring.
I would love to say that I will re-open the shops then, but I just don't know. There are so many things up in the air right now and it's hard to say what will happen.
Whatever will be, will be.
