Have A Question On How I Did Something? PLEASE READ!

I love to share what knowledge I have. I'm finding it more and more difficult to respond to your questions because some of you are not leaving a way for me to contact you. I am not ignoring those of you who have questions, but the majority of the time no contact information is given so I am unable to respond to your inquiries. If you are serious about me answering the questions you ask and do not have a Blogger account with an email address linked to it, please leave your email address or email me with your question at knmic1012@aol.com and I will get back with you. If you email me, be sure to put "blog question" in the subject line so I won't think it's SPAM and delete it.

Wishing Everyone The Best In 2011!

I've given a lot of thought to and agonized over my decision to suspend my blogging for the foreseeable future. Although I have "met" so many wonderful people though my blogging and will truly miss you, there is a fine line between the fun and the work aspect of blogging. I have said on many occasions that blogging is a lot of work and it really takes the enjoyment out of creating when I don't get the response I need to make it worth while. At the present I don't want to invest the time it takes to maintain a blog when I am not getting the satisfaction I need. I spend countless hours answering emails from those that come to my blog day after day to get ideas. It's a little disheartening when I have spent so much time to never receive as much as a thank you.

I want to take this opportunity to thank all of my loyal followers and friends for their continued support. I especially appreciate that support that has carried me through moments of doubt. As I mentioned at the beginning of this posting, I have met so many wonderful people through my blogging and hope to continue contact with those of you whom I consider my friends.

I will maintain my blog for those who wish to visit. Should my passion for card making bring me back to blogging, I hope you will be there to share in my creativity. In closing, I want to wish you and yours a very healthy, happy, and prosperous New Year!

Oh my gosh Kelly! I am so going to miss you! I apologize for not posting comments as often as I should but let me tell you..you are one of the most inspiring persons to me. Everything you do is beautiful and you were one of the first ones to comment on my blog when I chose to start one..it brought such a smile to my face that someone liked what I had made! I hope you find happiness and will keep creating..you are a very talented person. Enjoy your time away from blogging..but I do hope you only take a short break (wink).
Email anytime you need to! take care hun!
Hugs,

Oh Kelly what a surprise/shock that you are not going to appear in my new posting list each day. I love your creations and the disney ones you do for your friend are always spectacular. I do appreciate the coment regarding time and I am afraid I do fail to post frequently and have always wondered how people manage to create and post each and every day along with their 'normal' daily lives. I shall miss you dearly and can only hope you will drop me an email to the UK every now and again and not loose touch.

Oh, Kelly, I,too, will miss you! You are such a talented person and your cards were a great inspiration to me! It was because of you that I even started a blog,but, I know what you mean about it.....it is a lot of work, which is the reason, I don't do it every day...Please keep in touch, fellow Floridian! Hugz to you and yours! Happy New Years!

OMGosh Kelly... What am I going to do with out your beautiful upbeat sunshine everyday? I will so miss you. I totally understand the work thing about blogging... it is very time consuming! I hope you come back from time to time and say HI! You will be truly missed. Big HUGE Hugs from Idaho!

Awww Kelly I am so sorry to be reading this, I will miss you so much, you were my first follower, and if it weren't for your support and encouragement I don't think I would have continued. It's nearly one year now that I started my blog and I can remember how happy you made me. Yes, blogging is so time consuming, my life has changed so much since I started mine and I totally understand you by doing this but still can't believe that I won't be seeing your lovely cards anymore. I really do hope to still see you around now and again. Big hugs Kelly, to you and your family and all the best for the new year xxxx

Oh my goodness...girlfriend you will totally be missed, that said I also know where you are coming from, the time spent on making a card then writing about it, that is why I blog for myself and if anyone wants to take a peek at what I have made they are welcome too. I also like to have a record of what I have made...
I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers,
Have a lovely New Year,
Carol<><

Kelly, you will be missed. I discovered your site just a short while ago and have loved all your Disney creations. Thank you for sharing your creativity with us. I understand your decision. We only live this life once and we should do things that make us happy and life easier. I hope you will continue having fun with your paper crafts. And maybe some day you will return to your blog so we can share in them too. I wish you all the best and a very happy new year! Take care.

Oh Kelly, I was so shocked to hear you are leaving us...I have been away what with the holidays and then getting this "grunge" cold I have that is making me miserable. I know what you mean about blogging taking up so much time, but just do it "for yourself"....I love my blog and love to visit other blogs, its my morning routine, just wish I had more time to visit everyone....I have been neglecting all my favorites...so I hope you will continue as we all love seeing your lovely creations..I know I am going to miss you...take care and when you are ready to jump back in there, we will be waiting!!!

Although I knew this time was coming, I am like the others, so very sad to see it is now a reality. Yours is the very first blog I became a follower of. And as I have said many times, your blog is the first thing I look at every night when I get home from work. I have also told you many times that I think of you as the "master" and although I know (uh...I hope!) we will still be communicating, I want people who may read these comments to know that you are - by far - one of the nicest, most generous, most helpful and giving people I have ever met. These are qualities that are the "behind the scenes" qualities most people don't know about. Fortunately, I do. I will miss my daily "Kelly's blog" fix, but at the same time I wholeheartedly support your decision to break away from it all. You need to do what makes YOU happy Kelly. I sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you have given and done for me. Ciao for now, my friend...Dayle

I will certainly miss you!! And I certainly understand your feelings! I have always appreciated you and your creations. Have a wonderful New Year and I hope you will return! Hugs to you from me! Carri

Teresa said...

Oh Kelly, I am terribly sorry to hear you are leaving us. You have inspired me so much. Just tonight my daughter and I were coloring some of those first precious moments pictures u sent us. We got pro-markers for Christmas in hopes that our pictures would start looking more like Kelly's. I look through my blog list every day to find if Kreative Kelly has posted. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you have given to us through your blog. I will continue to follow in the hopes that you will post now and then, but I do understand. Love, hugs and happy New Year from Teresa and Jenny

Kelly, I can't image my day without looking at your blog. I understand where you are coming from but I so sorry to hear this. I will miss you terribly. You are the first blog I ran across by accident and have been with you daily. This is not the way I hoped to start my new year. You will be missed immensely. You had gotten to know my taste and I will cherish the cards I have gotten from you (the ones I havn't sent) and will keep them now for sure. Wishing you all the best and hope you come back at some time. Your creations are fantastic. Your friend always. Hope to keep in touch somehow. Lorene

Barb said...

Oh Kelly, I'm really going to miss your blog! You have given me so much inspiration and support this past year. Always leaving supportive comments on my blog. I always look forward to see what you've been up to. I try and leave comments, but sometimes I'm at work when I'm viewing your blog and don't have a chance. I will miss you and hope that you will be back soon. Take care and I hope you will be back. Barb

Suzanne C said...

Kelly you make the right decision for you! :) I enjoyed visiting and seeing your creativity. I totally empathize with you as the time spent on-line is time not being spent creating. Take care and have a creative new year!

You make such beautiful cards. You will be sadly missed. I have enjoyed your blog so much.

DonnaMundinger said...

This makes me sad but I understand completely. I ask myself if it's worth it several times a week. I apologize that throughout the holidays I've not been able to keep up my regular visits but I thhink of you often and find you so inspiring. I hope you find joy in whatever you choose to do. The best of everything in 2011 and beyond. Hugs! xxD

Buttons Ribbons and Pearls said...

Hey Kelly! Hope you had a wonderful holiday season. So glad that you decided to post the cards you make. Nothing better than some eye candy! Adorable cards, the first one made me chuckle! Take care girl! :)Tracy

Lisa said...

Hey Kelly!

As usual, I'm just catching up to speed here and if the blog slows the artist inside you... I say, ditch it!!!

You're a true inspiration... Keep on creating those beautiful cards.

Hugs,
Lisa

PS... They say a pictures worth a thousand words ;)
