Hi friends!

I’m sorry for being MIA for so long. The past few months I’ve been busy following a course to become a nail tech. In March, I finished the course! In the meantime I’ve been working as a substitute teacher here and there and of course I’m still responsible for the social media platforms for Cloud9 Crafts! 🙂

However, I haven’t made cards in SUCH a long time! My mojo has been gone for ages and to be honest, my interest in card making has decreased. In my spare time I love to workout and do nails! In fact, I love doing nails so much I decided to take the plunge and start my own nail salon in August! Eek! I’m SO excited!

Currently I’m busy planning everything for my nail business! Meeting up with accountants, going to the bank, insurance companies, etc. That’s why my mind hasn’t been on card making.

I started card making when I was 12 years old. I’m 24 now! People change over the years and so do their interests. I think I have come to a point in my life where I no longer enjoy making cards.

In all those years, you all have been so supportive and sweet! I built friendships with people from all over the world. People I still talk to on a regular basis! Card making has brought me so much joy. But lately that wasn’t the case. Now, I’m definitely not saying I won’t ever make cards again but for now I’m taking a long break.

I deactivated my Linkdeli account since I was still paying the subscription every month but was no longer using it. My blog will still be available for a while, but probably not for much longer since I’ll have to renew that subscription as well (domain name and host). However, my YouTube account and Instagram account will be online forever! You can also follow me on my personal Instagram and my nail business’ Instagram page.

Thank you for reading my update and for all of your support throughout the years! This is not goodbye! 🙂 Feel free to follow me on my personal Instagram page so we can connect! I’d love to see what you guys are up to as well!

Sending big hugs,

Laura ❤️
