My Leaving Sale is still Running


share this: facebook

LaurensLeavingSale

Just a reminder that all my products are on sale for 60% off. But only till November 17 and then they will be gone .

Ive taken up a new career in the food industry and its taking up a lot more of my time than I anticipated, leaving me no free  time for designing.

Most of them will be gone forever as I have no immediate plans to sell anywhere else in the short term.

When live settles down a little I may feel the urge to do some more designing but until then its time to say Goodbye – so if youve been putting off picking up that kit you liked, then now is the time to grab it .

Heres a link to all my products

Leaving the Nest – Goodbye to DSP


share this: facebook

 

Saying goodbye is never easy. And this goodbye was harder than most. In fact I wavered back and forward on this decision for a while but I think the time is right for me to say goodbye to DSP.

I’ve had a marvellous 9 years and 8 months there and  I’m leaving on good terms, but as you may  know, Ive taken a new direction in my life with following one of my other loves – food,- in taking on a job as a Cooking Technology  Tutor for KitchenThings – an upmarket appliance store here in New Zealand.

I’m not one to do anything at half measures and I although I thought hard about it I really feel there is no way I could continue my commitments at DSP as well as those required by the new role and do a good job at both.

 

To that end I handed in my resignation earlier this week and I will be leaving DSP on November 17th.

I hope this gives you plenty of time to grab any of my products you don’t have and always wanted.  These wont be available anywhere else in at least the short term.

They are being offered in the DSP Store at 60% off between now and November 17 at which point they will be gone.

LaurensLeavingSale

My current challenges will be my last at DSP as a designer.

When I decided to resign someone said to me, “I cant imagine you not designing” and I have to agree. I cant imagine me not designing again either,  and so I’m not saying this will be goodbye to designing forever. I’ll be like that bad penny that turns up again for sure, but in the short term I think after being a digital designer for nearly 12 years, I think I deserve a little holiday .

I’ll be keeping my blog here updated – My interest in scrapbooking has definitely evolved and moved from family scrapbooking to family history scrapbooking and I truly believe scrapbooking family  history is one of the best ways to present your research.

Ill still be doing custom books and classes for Memories in Time and ‘ll certainly be continuing with my own family history research.

You can always find me on facebook too. – so in closing Ill say – “ catch you on the flip side”… because its not goodbye – its more like –” keep my place for me while I pop out for a bit”
