GOODBYE FOR A WHILE ...

There are 9 more papers sitting on my hard drive for this TAGGED kit but there is so little interest just lately in LilyBelle Designs I'm not planning on uploading them. In general, I think the popularity of my designs has waned and I feel that they should be retired at least for a while. The freebies that are presently available here will remain for another month or so and then I'll remove them. A BIG thank you to ALL OF YOU who have taken the time to comment and express appreciation for my bits and pieces. Reading your comments was a real joy!

myscrapbook says: Your designs are fantastic. You are one of the few great designers who actually gives Her best to share. I for one will miss your creations. I do hope you will resume shareing your designs but if not thank you for taking the time to creat the great kits that you have shared with us.

I think Sharon is right; the weather is luring everyone outside, plus it's time for graduations and family vacations. And the kids are home full time from school. Please enjoy your summer, too, and come back to us in the fall. We'll all be waiting -- and missing your work in the meantime. I'm a daily visitor, by the way, simply because your work is so good!

Summer is a good time to take a break but know you will be missed so much!!!!!! I love your work!!!! I know how hard you work on your kits and I can't believe there is little interest in them. I do good if I get 40 dl a day so don't give up! I guess i will see you when you get back or on rakscraps.

Hi Fay, I'm interested!! I just realized today that you were offering downloads other than quickpages on this kit (duh!). I thought I had to get the kit from rakscraps, which I'm having technical problems with.

I have to agree with the others that fewer downloads are probably just a summer slump due to people going on vacation. And fewer comments are probably due to 4shared changing their format to where it is now a big PITA to leave a comment.

So don't be discouraged. Take a vacation if you want to. But please come back. (You might need to send up a flare or send a singing telegram so I will know you are back though! ;-)

Tammy said...

I agree with everyone else..I have very little time for computers right now, with kids home for summer, and nice weather...who would want to be inside? We will miss you while you're on your break, but don't get discouraged...it's summer, and I for one, will miss your designs!

kathy said...

I too have so enjoyed your designs, and like some others here, I find many blogs that have few people downloading and just tell myself it's because it's summer, kids are out of school, etc....please don't feel like interest has waned, your designs are wonderful and so are you to share your talents with us....you surely will be missed, enjoy your time away from us, but please come back....I'm gonna be checking on you too :-)

I am so sorry to hear that you will be "going away" for a while - I will really miss my visits to your blog.
Your designs are some of the best I have seen - I always like the variety you offer.
Thanks so much for all the beautiful kits you have designed and shared - you have a very generous heart!! I hope this will only be good-bye for a little while.
Take care. Betty

I just had to tell you how sad you are giving up...how about "taking a break"..everyone deserves that. I found your blog only recently and I have been a daily visitor ever since. Your work is awesome, please don't give up doing this. Thank you very much for all your beautiful designs and especially for shaing them with all of us.

I hope you will come back soon, and let us show you how much you are appreciated.
Enjoy your time away!

Love your site and your work is so appreciated. Summer is here and a lot of us will be taking a break. Take a well deserved break and come back in the fall. I will check back on a regular basis. HUGS

Marianna said...

Thank you so much for these beautiful papers 1,2,3, and 4. You will be missed but I will keep checking back. Enjoy your summer!

makeyesup said...

Thanks so much for sharing these papers and everything else you have done. You are a super designer and should not get discouraged. There are a lot of people out there that don't seem to understand that they should be appreciative of everything that people do for them. Enjoy whatever you are going to do and relax.

Just found your bog. You have made some outstanding kits! Hope to see you return in the future.

misty said...

I just found youg blog about a week ago and love the kits you do. I even joined RAK to get your part but it was not offered with the others. I agree with the others this time of year is busy with prom and graduations and all that ( I myself have not had the time this past week to even look at a computer lol) and for the people who had to stay in during the winter , maybe they need to get pictures to scrap LOL. anyway I do hope you plan to come back and maybe you could offer your part of the RAK kit as I really love it. Enjoy the sunshine and will be checking back.

Susi said...

Sorry to see you go. I have been busy doing other things that I havent been PSPing for a while. Summer time is very busy for lots of folks so I am sure that is why not to many visit right now.
I hope by fall you will be back to designing again.
