Important Please Read – EKC14 Update

As you may or may not know, Kathy has gone through a lot these past few months.

Due to a recent surgery, Kathy needs to take some time to heal and fully recuperate.

So, she will be changing the start date for the next quarter of the kit club (EKC14) from April through June to May through July.

Doing this will give Kathy the rest of March and all of April to fully recover and catch up on late projects without stressing too much.

EKC13 Members: For EKC13 members, the Feb bonus project, as well as March main and bonus projects will be late but added to your folders as soon as they are ready.

CBBQ1 Members: Members of Cards, Boxes and Bows Quarter 1 – the February & March card designs will also be late, but added to your folders once available.

I am sure you will all be understanding – perhaps we can all take this opportunity to catch up with Kathy on some of our projects :)

Prayers and good thoughts for Kathy are always welcomed and appreciated.


P.S. I forgot to add…

EKC14 Signups will be closing on April 7th, 2015

May Project: Mix & Match Mini Album
Paper collection: I am, by Simple Stories, American Craft clipboard

June Project: Life in Retrospect 2 -Family-

    I am more than happy for kathy to take all the time she needs, there is no rush to do any of the things she had planned and I will still be here when she feels better. My thoughts are with you and your son take care of each other , that’s what is important. Shall see you again when your ready …..and not before xxx

  7. Lisa Gay says:

    I have to say that I’m relieved that Kathy is taking some much needed time for herself. She has been through so much physically and mentally, and both at the same time, that she needs and deserves some time off. I hope she’s able to recuperate at her own pace and I know that others will be respectful of however long that takes. There is no crafting need that is more important than the needs of someone’s soul. Let’s let her regenerate and come back a much more rested and whole person. I hope I never have to go through what’s she’s been through! See you when when you’re feeling better Kathy!

  8. Mia Neal says:
