A sad farewell

WOW!! I can't believe the time has come where I have to shut down the DYSU blog.. I started this blog before I started my own acrylic stamp company The Alley Way Stamps. I never imagined it would take off and have so many wonderful and talented players. Over the course of the blog, I have met wonderful people and made amazing friendships. I am deeply grateful for that.
I have to say a HUGE THANK YOU to my design team, who each week brought so much inspiration and eye candy for all of us to enjoy. Also a big THANKS to my DT Leads over the years, and  especially Joan and Ren-Yi who took this blog to a whole new level, and placed it under their wing since I have been so busy with everything going on..

I want to give a HUGE THANK YOU to Pauline for helping out and taking on more than was asked of her. She volunteered to help out and has gone above and beyond!! We never would have made it without HER..

I am sure going to miss looking through the creations of all of you in blog land.. I am sure I will see you all here and there.. thanks for making this such a fun challenge.. we couldn't have done it without you.. 
HUGS
