It is time for me to let go.
But with a sad heart I realize I have reached the point I must say goodbye to my cotton tape shop. I sold my very first tape almost a year and a half ago, and dedicated all my time since to running my shop, and creating new designs. It was only yesterday when I decided to make a mosaic of images, of all the tapes I created, and there were so many, that I stopped at a 104. Not realising I had been that busy.
Besides my illustrated tapes, I know I created over 500 custom made tapes, and there have been countless silly large wholesale orders in between that saw me working diligently through the nights.
I am not sure if I am doing the right thing, but I have been trying to combine my cotton tape shop, with my other creativity, but as hard as I tried, I just could not find the time.
I love creating the tapes, but it was never my intention that these would take over my every day life.
So I will be removing all my cotton tapes in 2 weeks time, to allow for last orders, before they will be gone for ever.
I will be re-opening again later on in the year, with new items and a much smaller selection of cotton tapes. I have been so excited, for so long, about ideas that have been living in my head, that I figure that now is the right time to make this really difficult decision. [ this has been my 'baby' for a long time ]
I would like to say thank you ever so much to all my customers, who have all been so wonderful!
I will be back, and I will even bring back the most popular tapes when I open again. But I really need change, inspiration and motivation.
If you would like to place an order please do contact me. If there is a tape in my sold section, I can re-list this item for you, no problem at all.
Customers who have ordered custom made tape from my shop before, can still re-order their tapes!
Thank you so much again for a most amazing year-and-a-half!
