Thank You

Thank you to everyone for your support and understanding about Kiti Q. It means a lot to me, and it's touching that people are sad to see Kiti Q going (or possibly selling to someone else). It means that Kiti Q became all that I wanted it to, and that makes me happy.

I just thought I'd share this layout that I did a little while ago. I have scrapped this photo of Jude and I before, but it was ages ago and I much prefer this version :-P He is such a cutie! (yes, still a doting mum despite the 2 year old tantrums lol)

Off to do housework now - bleh!

Big Changes - Kiti Q is for Sale

Yep, you read right. I am pulling away from Kiti Q and if you are interested in buying the website, please email me your interest ( Either way, the shop will be offline from the 1st July 2008.

Let me explain the reasons behind this decision....

This is why : Kiti Q is going well - it has so much potential. It would make a fantastic 'real life' store, especially if incorporated with a few other lifestyle items such as stationery, and hand-crafted jewellery. It has a HUGE potential to grow and become even bigger and better than it is now. But the truth is, it's not the right time for me to take it to this next level. As much as I would absolutely LOVE to open a bricks and mortar store (and believe me, I have designed my shop front, how things would be displayed and even looked at shops available for lease) but it's not my time. My time is to be spent with my little ones before they head off into school in the next few years. My time is to be spent building & renovating our home, making it a pleasant environment for family and friends and a place that makes me feel content and calm. It's just not my time to be a funky scrapbook shop owner :-)

I love the scrapbooking industry - it moves so fast, growing and creating. I've made so many fantastic friends, people who inspire me with their lives and creations, through Kiti Q, and for that I will be forever grateful and thankful.

I will still be scrapbooking. Definitely. I love this hobby. I just won't be owning a scrap shop. I'm simplifying things, de-cluttering my mind and hopefully opening the way for a little more freedom in my everyday.

To celebrate Kiti Q, we will be making the last Scrap'n'Chat crop day, on the 28th June, a special and fun one - a farewell, if you will. Music, good food, prizes and just a lot of laughter. Would love to see you there :-)

Please feel free to email me if you have any questions.

Take care. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

New Knits from Grandma

Here are a couple of photos of the kids in their new knitted clothes from Grandma (my mum) who lives in South Australia. They fit great mum! And they love them :-) See...

I took these photos just quickly this morning, before they headed off to their Nan & Pa's for the day. Jude wasn't really into Lana is always into it..:-P

Michael Buble....oh yeah :-P

Last night I was in a room with about 11,000 other fans listening to Michael Buble sing and chat...and it was fantastic! He has a fun sense of humour, and an awesome voice. I'll definitely be saving up my pennies for whenever he next tours for front section seats, cos our seats weren't great this time, but it was still a fantastic concert. As you can see from the piccie above, not great for photos. It was dark and we were quite far away, so my photos aren't the best, but that's ok. This photo of Reeze & I turned out fun though! (and yes! I'm wearing that hat again..LOL)

Enjoy your long weekend!

NEW Frosty, Shimmery Lace Cardstock

I got a surprise delivery this morning of the new KI Memories Bloom Frosty Lace Cardstock - why a surprise? Well, I was told it was shipping in the first week of June, and here we are on the 4th June and I have it in my hands, all the way from the US - very swift!

But I am very chuffed to have it, as it is sooooo cool and are the designs, which come in 3 different colours for each :

What do you think?
