There’s been a lot of soul-searching (and late-night tossing and turning) in these first days of 2010. I don’t always feel so reflective as a new year begins, but this year my mind has been swirling! My life has become extremely full lately, with running a business, blogging, homeschooling, and all the other great parts of my everyday life.
After much thought and discussion, I have decided to close the Let’s Explore Shop. This was a difficult decision, and not one I took lightly. But, I know it is the right one for me and my family right now. Running an online retail store was a big adventure for me – I learned SO much, met so many fantastic parents and teachers, and shared my passion for open-ended, creative play. It was an amazing opportunity and a huge undertaking, and I know it has helped me prepare for whatever adventures are coming my way down the road.
A big, big, gigantic thank you to all my customers and supporters – I read and re-read every lovely comment and e-mail and they mean the world to me. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I am looking forward to returning some balance to my life, with more time for reading, crafting, and of course, playing with my girls! (Maybe some writing, too….)
The good news is:
1. I will still be here blogging away – hopefully even more often than before.
2. We get to have one more big sale as a final hurrah!
Starting today, everything at the Let’s Explore Shop is 40% off. Some items are in very limited quantities, so keep that in mind. If you would be interested in spreading the word about the closing sale, that would be much appreciated. Feel free to grab the graphic at the bottom of this post. :)
So, here’s to changes and new adventures! Happy playing!
