To All My Dragonfly Princesses ~

Monday, May 6, 2019

Hello to all of My Gorgeous Dragonfly Princesses :)

If I could peek inside the story of my life so far and look back, I wouldn’t have expected what some of the chapters would be; some of them that took me so over the moon happy, and then others, of course, that I would have liked to just skip altogether.  But that’s just life, right?

Well my dears, I’ve started one of those chapters that I wish a big wind would come by and could just blow the pages by quickly so I could get to the end of it, but it’s just not going to be that easy.  I’m sure if you’re still reading this you know what’s coming next, and that I’m going to have to take a pause for the cause for a bit, and possibly close down this little thing I call a blog.  It's not easy to put the focus on me because I love to make others happy first, but that's just what I'm going to have to do right now, whether I like it or not.

If you have enjoyed any part of what I’ve written or created at some point over the last 11 years and 1,878 posts, I can now only ask in return for your good thoughts, great karma, prayers, virtual hugs, or whatever you can throw my way.  I will still be creating as much as I can, because after all it is so good for my soul, and I know that you know what I mean by that as a crafter.  I may just post to my Pinterest board and to my Splitcoast Stampers Gallery when I can, and who knows, I may even bring the blog back for another Dragonfly Journey at some point.

If you'd ever like to have a personal chat with me, here is my email address:
I'd love to keep in touch with all of you lovelies that I've gotten to know over the years.  Thank you for letting me into your personal life with your stories, pictures of your amazing families and friends, and sharing the things you've made for them.  I hope they treasure them forever.  I know I would.

Please know that I have so enjoyed your sweet thoughts about whatever I’ve created, but more importantly that you have all brought more joy to me than I can ever express with your inspiring creations, and every word of every comment I’ve ever left for you truly came from my heart.

I miss you already…

Lots of Love, Hugs, and Dragonfly Kisses ~
Jeannie T.

Hi girl! I am so sorry to see the blog take a break but I totally understand that sometimes a break is needed. I hope you take the "me" time you need. You are right that is a hard thing to do when you are the giving one. But, it sounds like that is needed. Good luck to you.
Big hugs!!
