There's no sugar coating this one. Not in my mind, and not in words.
The time has come to say goodbye to Soren Lorensen Design.
But we sure did make a fun go of it! :) I mean that. You've helped me create some of the greatest memories of my life! You pushed me to creative limits I had yet to visit, you laughed with me and had bad days with me, you challenged me to grow and you have become my friends. You guys ROCK.
So, I guess I have to explain myself a little bit. The last few months I have done some serious soul searching and totally boring number crunching. I discovered that my soul was consumed by my work and my numbers were too crunched! I stalled, tried a few different tactics, and also developed a line for wholesale distribution only. But no matter how I put it on paper, SLD just wasn't jiving with my life, and I realize it is the right time for me to say goodbye.
Two years. Seven hundred and thirty days. Not a single one passed where SLD was not on my mind and part of my day. And I say that in a good way. :) I love SLD! It's so fun. I get to be creative, play with color, and dress your adorable kiddos!
So thank you for all the great fun you've provided me!
Oh, the plans? Well, I haven't determined it yet. But the Two Year Anniversary "BIG" Fundraiser is still being planned for the week of Feb 24th, and I want to raise a lot of money for some special causes. I'll fill you in on those details soon, but it should be fun. I think the shop will be closing sometime in March, but I'll continue to update you on the decisions as I make them. I'm random like that ;)
So thanks for sticking with me, supporting me, and being such good people. I've learned a lot from some of you, and you've made me a better person.
