Baby versus Running a Challenge {Baby 10, Mommy 0}

Image result for baby and time crunch

The same could be said for running a card challenge...I get to the computer and cannot get anything done...

Hello crafty friends and participants of The Challenge! After much consideration, I have decided to stop The Challenge. I was really hoping to be able to run the challenge and to have a brand new baby but alas, I cannot seem to balance the two things together.

I will still be designing for SugarPea Designs and for Verve Stamps. And I am delighted about that because this momma needs some crafty time for her! But running a challenge is SO much work and I just cannot maintain it to the high standard I have striven so hard to achieve in the past!

Thank you for your understanding and for playing along with us! I have decided to not announce winners for the past two challenges. There was so much beauty in the gallery, it is always so hard to choose!

I'll be back soon with some personal crafty creations.

  1. Hugs to you, Lesley. You've made the right decision for you, your sanity and your family and they're the most important things that. Things will settle down by the time Maeley is, oh, about 18 ;)

  2. We all understand, Lesley! You concentrate on that beautiful little baby girl, who will be a grown woman before you know what happened! It sounds like you have it figured out so you can still get some much-needed artistic "me" time, which makes for a happy household for everyone! Hugs, Darnell

  6. Babies come first...I don't know how you managed it this far. Yes, we'll miss it but what you're doing is THE most important job in the world. Bless you.

  9. Your challenge will be missed Lesley. But they are only little once and she should most definitely come first. Before you know it she'll be stamping with you!!
