Closing The Store for Awhile

I'm so excited to finally share with you all that I'm pregnant!  I am currently almost 14 weeks and I am due in early July.  Unfortunately, I've been suffering from severe morning sickness these past couple of months.  I am continuously nausea and have been throwing up.  This is why I haven't been around for anything or have been doing anything.  Though I haven't been well, I am happy to say that baby is doing just great!

Though it's been a hard decision for me to make, I have decided to take a break from SCRS this coming year.  The site, Facebook page, and blog, will all still be open and up.  But I will not be selling product out of the store this year.  I hope to re-open the store for purchases in 2015. 

Most of you know that I run this business pretty much by myself, on top of working a full time Corporate job.  Though Brent has been a good sport at cutting rubber for me, it's still me who runs my design team, the blog, website, Facebook page, orders, packaging, customer service, and everything else.  This is my first pregnancy and it's been quite rough for me.  To be fair to everyone, I can't keep up and provide a high level of service. 

I do want to truly thank everyone though for all the love and support you've given to me and my company.  I've made such wonderful friends and I couldn't of asked for a better group of ladies who have been on all of my design teams.  Without you all, I would of never been able to jump into one of my dreams, and I really do appreciate it. 

We wish you all a great year for 2014 and look forward to seeing you in the future.  Though I won't be actively posting on here, as always, if anyone needs anything, they are more than welcome to email me at sparklingapple17@hotmail.com or message me on Facebook.  Thanks again for everything!
