Yes Barbara - you are correct, there are several designers retiring in 2015. There are a few gals on the list that have not designed anything since before I started at Scrap Girls (meaning nearly three years if you can believe that!!). I promised when I started that I would make changes slowly and it felt like it was finally time to let these gals go.


Other designers have had big changes in their lives over the past year or so which means that they won't have time to design in the foreseeable future. For example Durin is now a full-time school teacher, Shalae's sixth child is due in January, and Kimmy has gone to work full time in her husband's landscaping business. We love these gals and their beautiful, classic designs so we've been reluctant to say goodbye. But the truth is that we have overloaded our servers, back-up files and store capacity, so we need to let some things go to make way for the new.  


In my mind the beginning of a new year always seems like a good time to tidy up and get your head ready to take on the challenges that a new year brings. So I decided it was a good time for us to say farewell to these talented gals. We have big things planned for 2015, but we will still miss these gals and their designs.  But know that our 24 remaining designers will be working hard to fill the void.  And know that the door is open to all of them if their lives take a turn that brings them back to Scrap Girls.  If there is someone on the list that you will really miss, maybe you should let them know how much you would love to see them start designing again - you never know...
