2 weeks left till close.... and a thankyou freebie...

Afternoon everybody!
I hope everyones well, and all those in the UK are enjoying the lovely weather?

I'm not enjoying it as much as I should :(
I'm full of flu!
The heats bothering me due to getting bigger, and constantly coughing is hurting my ribs, which are already hurting due to everything being squashed by bubs!!

right, thats my moan out of the way...

I wanted to say a huge THANKYOU for all the lovely messages of support you left on my last post...
reading them, in a funny way made me feel a bit better about everything!
and it was so nice to get so many emails too... I'm so grateful to you all for being so wonderful, and for helping me realise that I'm doing the right thing!

and as so many of you have said, maybe it doesn't have to be forever.....
I'll still be around on this blog from time to time...
and the itch is still there for drawing at the mo... (I think now the pressure has gone)
so you may still get freebies every now and then... ;)
so do keep popping over still...

anyway... I wanted to remind everyone that there's only 2 weeks now till Pollycraft closes its doors...

if you've not got the digis you want yet....you better hurry!!
you don't want to miss out on these fabulous deals...



and heres a little something extra for you all to say thank you...

Sapphire Bloom - Grateful
 I reckon I like this lil character... I'm sure you'd have seen alot more of her had I continued with the shop...
heres a sentiment to go with her...


hope you enjoy using her... remember freebies are still covered by standard terms of use
and its nice to know where she's going... so if you take her, please leave me a comment...

I'll be back in a couple of days, cos I have something fun planned...

watch this space...

Thank you so much for the freebies they are super. Good Luck with everything. I know how much time a bubba takes so I understand why you are taking a well earned break. Enjoy every moment with the little one and the rest of your family.

Thanks for the adorable freebie.
I love your seet images so I've already hit the shop and loaded my cart at your last post.
Take extra care of yourself so you can get over the flu !!(Yuck!!...you poor thing...it's miserable to be sick, but more so when you're pregnant)
:) Best of luck awaiting the little one!!

Sarah said...

Hi Paula, thanks ever so for the freebies - have just downloaded these and the ones in your post about shutting the shop up.

I have to admit on a very personal note I was sad to see you close up, but totally understand the reasons why - a new baby is a very demanding thing and it is so difficult to juggle the demands of work and family.

I do hope you will open up the shop again sometime in the future - but in the meantime hope you enjoy your time with your family.

Nat said...

Sorry you are not feeling well, but glad that you are feeling better about your decision, sometimes it's the thinking about it that's worse than the doing! Thank you for the freebies, you are very talented and I'm sure you'll be able to put it to good use in the future.

Ellen Jarvis said...

Thank you, sweetie, for the freebies (the image and the sentiment). The imp is adorable! Once Bubs is napping, you may want to consider doing more with her, and when you ENJOY it, you may come back to us as a creative outlet. We're your Forever-Friends! Meanwhile, kick back and relax in knowing how soon Bubs will be off your ribs and into your arms. Oh, I remember those uncomfy days of a bulging pregnancy -- wanting to enjoy the joy of tummy rolls and the fun of eating for two -- but at the same time, just wanting to be sure all's well, and to look into the baby's eyes and "connect." I'm envious of that special time ... though certainly not, of the rib-crushing, back-aching, legs hurting "what did I get myself into" moods.

ENJOY, be happy and healthy -- and know we're keeping you in our prayers for joy and peace.

Love you!

You've definately got a lot on your platter, so just make sure you take care of yourself before that little one comes along! Thanks for taking us on this journey with you, but remember that you can always pop in whenever you get the chance. You may love the escape from baby duty! lol Thanks again!
