DigiStitches Closing

DigiStitches Closing--Our Last Day!

*Important *Bittersweet* News!
*Questions you may have will be answered below

I love creating and I need to create, it makes me happy and fulfills me.  I am so very honored that you let me share that creativity with you. It truly has been an amazing 11 years and those of you that started with me from the very beginning know how far we've come. I wanted to let each and every one of you know how much I appreciate you. From the wonderful testimonials, to sharing your project photos and enthusiasm for what I do. Without you, my web site would not be the success it is today. Every purchase you made in support of my website put food on our table and provided clothing for my kids. It sent my kids through private schools, paid for ballet classes, piano lessons, paid for college tuition, provided jobs for both of my kids and helped me realize so many of my dreams. My kids are now grown, have their own homes and I now have a grandson, with another on the way!

Since the kiddos are grown, my hubs and I decided that it was time to fulfill one of his dreams--to be a farmer! I know it's crazy, but a year and a half ago, we bought a small farm. We know absolutely ZERO about farming, not to mention that we're city folk! We've learned how to sow seeds and I learned how to drive a tractor. Believe me, I've had some real Zsa-Zsa Gabor/ Green Acres moments, thinking we’re not cut out for this AT ALL! With that being said, there's something about farming that I really love. I'm finding my soul craves being at the farm and I enjoy the creativity of planting, growing and harvesting of things. I find myself wanting to spend more time outdoors surrounded by God's beautiful county. I find myself wanting to have more time to be with my family and my grandchildren.

A few days ago, a good friend, Julie Hesketh from www.DesignsByJuJu.com , reached out to me for business advice, which is totally a coincidence as I was about to pick up the phone and ask for her business advice. In our conversation, I opened up about my life over the last year and a half and my longing for more time with my family. Julie stepped forward about purchasing the designs, and within the hour I SOLD the website! It all happened very quickly, which is good for me, because I tend to think long and hard about decisions and this decision had to be made quickly or else, I'd think of 1,000 reasons to keep it! We both felt the coincidental contact and, resulting quick sale, was God's way of saying "Trust in me" and this was the right move to make at this time in our lives. That being said, taking this step of faith and letting go of a dream isn't easy--it's bittersweet!

I will never forget those last few minutes and the tears running down my face as I signed over ownership of my website and designs, wondering if it was the right move? It's said that "To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven."  I trust in God that I've made the right decision for myself and my family.
I will miss my website and each and every one of you every, single, day and cannot thank you enough for all of your love and support! If you’d like to keep up with me, and our farming adventures, you can find me here: www.facebook.com/alumcreekfarm
