Lounge Closing~The End of An Era

Well Gang, it's been a great run~and as the saying goes: "All good things must come to an end."
I've had a blast owning and working hands-on at the Scrapping Lounge these past 5 years. Meeting all you wonderful customers that made my day that much brighter was awesome! Some of you became friends that I will always cherish and am honored to know; and friends that I "dragged" into this I'm blessed to still have your friendships! Fabulous!

There is no other store around quite like the Scrapping Lounge, nor will there ever be~the Lounge was my vision that I was fortunate enough to see become a reality, what an awesome experience! How many of us are able to see a dream of ours actually come true? All, I hope.

As I close this chapter in my life with fond memories, I look forward to what the future holds. I'm actually excited to be working on my art full-time~and wouldn't it be cool if I could support myself with it? I intend to give it my all to see this happen!

Without my experience at the Scrapping Lounge, I feel that this next opportunity may have been delayed or different; things happen for a reason Gang! As I've been telling my customers when they come in feeling sad; "When one door closes, another one opens." I know this sounds like a cliche' but it makes sense. So, no long faces, the Scrapping Lounge will always be "The Coolest Spot" to hang and crop! This isn't Goodbye Friends, It's "See Ya Later"!

If you're interested, I can be reached @ paradisekittenart@yahoo.com I will be starting up teaching classes after I get things organized. Also, I will be continuing the Scrapping Lounge tradition of monthly 12-hour crops. If you want to receive my Paradise Kitten Art Newsletter, email me and I'll get you on the new list!

Love you Guys, you all ROCK!
