A Lovely Experience Never To Be Forgotten

What is time? An instance. An indefinite period. An action in a certain period of time

Sadly, my time has been quite scarce and so many important levels of my life have been neglected. With this said, I have made a decision to close one of my Etsy shops; Any Occasion Boutique officially closed this morning. It was a difficult decision to make, but an important one. However, I will continue to carry on with my Laura Lee's Tasty Treats plus will have more time to blog!

Another definition of time is- 'A moment considered as a resource under your control and sufficient to accomplish something'. I did just that with my Any Occasion Boutique and, now, with my Laura Lee's Tasty Treats. I have accomplished what I set out to do, put smiles on the faces of those receiving my cards. Now it is time for me to refocus on my family, friends and Laura Lee's Tasty Treats so that I may, once again, accomplish goals for which I have chosen.

Thank you to all my friends and family for your support and I look forward to many more days and years of sharing experiences.

It's always good to refocus and perhaps take a new path. Enjoy the ride!

You know Laura, I always told my girls," you have to go a different route to get to where you belong." Just so you know, I have been down so many roads, I think I am lost. No matter what you do, you will succeed..because of your being a loving person..Much love and blessings to you all this Easter..

I hear you, doing the same thing with my R&B shop. Even though you make the coolest cards EVER, you are doing very well with your bake goodie shop!

Happy Friday Sis!

I can well understand why you found two shops demanding Laura - I struggle to keep up with just the one! This sounds like the right decision for you - good luck!

Thank you, Ladies :-)

In an odd way, I am a little excited to be concentrating more on my bake shop and allowing my card shop to be my "relaxation" from stress! I appreciate SO MUCH all of your thoughts and sharing your own experiences :-D

Sometimes we just have to close the door on certain ventures to fully focus on others. Sadly there's never enough time in the day to follow through on all the things we'd like to be doing. So it sounds like you've made a healthy & wise decision to cut back a little in other areas. I imagine closing the shop would have been a little bit sad, but you can fill your Bake Shop with all of your happy energy now :) Good decision o-wise-one!

Hope you had a great Easter! xo
