We're Homeowners!

It's finally happened! Chris and I have bought a house together! It's feels like a long time coming but our life together can finally begin. It's been an crazy experience, a crazy rollercoaster ride of emotions, especially if you consider that we made the offer back on April 1st!

The house itself located in a quaint village surrounded by a lot of fields, which I didn't think I'd like?! When we first moved in I found it hard to fall asleep as it's so peaceful, but waking up to the sound of birds chirping away can be quite therapeutic. I am happy that everything is starting to come together, as we've finally got everything unpacked! 

And to think that it's been six months since Chris asked me to marry him and now we've moved in together. This is adulthood!

Why I Am Quitting Etsy.

I've fallen out of love with Etsy. I am just not at the same place I was when I started, and I feel it's time to move on. I have been thinking about it for a couple of months, debating what I should do and it's not been easy, but I have come to the decision to quit Etsy. I need to put myself first. I don't know if it's forever, never say never, there's always a possibility that I'll come back. I am just not making any promises.

There are many reasons why I came to this decision and it hasn't been easy. I need to start putting myself first, give myself time to relax, get healthy and start the next chapter of my life as not a lot of you will know that Chris and I are buying a house so I just can't wait to make that house a home. It's time I took control of my life, and after work and Etsy I don't have any time left in the day to make any significant changes which will positively impact on my life. 

Etsy had opened me up to so much joy. I've been so lucky to have made so many talented friends, all of which I will continue to support even when I've stepped back from it all. I am so thankful for everyone who has supported me on this journey. I couldn't have done it without it! Etsy has become a big part of my life over the last year and a half and whilst I am sad to let it go, it's important to do so.

This isn't goodbye. I really want to start blogging again, and I have ideas to start a series of 'How To:' crafty posts inspired by Disney to fill the void. Additionally, I will still be posting on my Instagram which I hope to transition into a general Disney lifestyle feed which I hope you all will like just as much. My Etsy will close on Saturday 17th June and as a treat you can save 25% off on all orders. I would like to take this opportunity to show my thanks to all of the support I have received since opening my Etsy, and hope that you will continue to support me wherever this next chapter takes me.
