Valediction

Saying good-bye.
I never thought this would be so hard to do. But do it I must.

First thank you all for your numerous comments on my last post. I appreciate it.

Next a quick update on what's happening in my life.
These last few weeks have been exhausting. After me being under weather, Damien had the flu or the swine flu. We don't know which, because they don't test it anymore. However if he didn't have it before we were in the waiting room of the childrens' clinic for over 2 hours filled with kids looking just as feverish as Damien, he probably had it afterwards. The little guy was under the weather for 3 days, but has been doing pretty good since.
After that wonderful episode in our life, I went on a little team building mission with my colleagues and boss. We went two days to Paris. God, I love Paris and I'm not talking about that annoying little Hilton bitch. It truly is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Instead of taking the metro like normal sane humans, we walked from one highlight to the next. And we didn't just do the inner city ones either. After those two days I actually had sore muscles. Can you believe it? I walk every fucking day to work and back and here I am legs aching after two days of walking in Paris. At least I'm sure everybody else felt the same or worse. Yet again I didn't get a chance to go into the Louvre (we only passed on the outside), and we didn't make it to Père Lachaise (in the humble opinion of this enthusiastic graveyard tourist, the world's third most beautiful cemetery after London's Highgate and New Orleans' Lafayette). I so wanted to kiss Oscar Wilde's grave again. I did that once 15 years ago, and I haven't regretted it since. This time around my personal Paris highlight was watching the Eiffel tower at night at the full hour - it twinkles! Ya just gotta love that ;-)

Since being back from Paris, work is crazy. And with Christmas around the corner life at home is crazy too.

Now that you know why I haven't been around lately, I'll come to the hard part, why I won't be around in the future. Well, I will be posting every now and then, but from here on out it will only be about my life, interests, vamps, and my opinion about what's going on. And every now and then I will get up on my little soapbox aka this blog and will tell the world what I think about it. So if you're interested in that, please stay. If you are looking for freebies, sorry, you won't be finding them here anymore. For those of you who want to do some own hunting, I have decided to share by Google reader list for a couple of weeks. You can find it in the sidebar. Happy hunting :-) I hope you find it as fun as I once did. *edit havinf troubles uploading my reader list, blogger isn't to will to upload 1000+ links. I'll keep trying though*
After 3 years of basically freebie hunting every evening, I no longer feel happy and relaxed while doing it. It has become another item on my to do list. And since that is already way too fucking long as it is, I have decided now is the time to call it quits.
These last weeks I have enjoyed reading every evening, and have done some writing too. I finished my first short story for a contest and am looking forward to finding out what others think about it. At the moment that is what makes me happy. I also have the outline for a second story written out, so I hope to start on that soon.
Picking up writing again, has not only made me happy, it has also improved my English - helped me get back into an "English" state of mind, opposed to a German one. I have started to dream in English again. I love that, makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. Also reading and in addition to writing fanfiction smut, as I do, - that rated M(ature) warning is there for a reason - has definitely not hurt our mommy-and-daddy-alone-time. No complaints from Chris so far ;-)

As this is for some of us a crossing and our paths will no longer connect, I want to say good-bye and thank you. I had a wonderful time. Scrapbooking was an important part of my life and I hope I will come to love it again. The digi scrapping community is not only tightly knit, caring and compassionate, but also a fabulous bunch of ladies and a few good men who I am glad I got to know better. I truly enjoyed the ride. Thank you.

Since I don't have any words of wisdom to leave you with, and you already know my favorite Eric Northman quote, here is one of my all time favorites by Robert Cody:
"Have the courage to live. Anyone can die."

Stay frosty
Cheers, Angie aka IkeaGoddess

Thank you for all you have shared - not just the freebies!(Though like many I have benefitted from your hours of searching.)Times change, we change and our priorities change so enjoy the things you are now spending time on and don't let anyone even try to make you feel bad for not doing their searching for them. I'm a bit of a lurker (sorry) and will still pop by from time to time to see how you are doing, have fun with the writing and enjoy yourself. Once again thank you so much for helping to fill my hard drive when I first caught this scrapping bug and I hope you get ot have fun as a family over this holiday time. Kaffp

Vicki said...

Angie - I think it's the best decision for you to make - you need to spend time for yourself rather than hunting freebies for others - life's short as it is! I'll still stop by, love reading your blog - I am always a little disappointed when it's just freebies - lol! Take care of you and have a WONDERFUL Christmas!

Thank you for introducing me to the wonderful world of digiscrapbooking. Hope to meet you again!

Just wanted to say:

Thank you very much for helping me getting addicted on scrapbooking, thanks for all the freebie-hunting, thank you for all of it!
I wish you and your family a very happy 2010 and I hope your writing will work out the way you want.
Success!

Angie,
I am sad to hear you are leaving scrapbooking but I certainly understand. If it isn't fun it isn't worth doing. I will continue to visit and follow what is new in your life because in some ways I feel like I know you, atleast a small portion of you. I want to watch Damien grow and hear whats new in your world.
May you have peace. I hope it doesn't offend you that I wish you a Merry Merry Christmas and all the best in 2010.

kirsty said...

Angie, yours was the first blog I found that got me interested in digi scrapping, even though it was only a short while ago. Thanks for sharing the many freebies, and good luck for your future!

Evert said...

I wish you the very best for the future and merry christmas to you and your loved-ones

God bless you!

Anett said...

vielen Dank für die vielen wunderschönen Freebies und die vielen interessanten Stories aus deinem Leben. Ich werde die Links sehr vermissen, aber ich kann gut verstehen, das irgendwann andere Dinge wichtiger werden. Vielen, vielen Dank und eine wunderschöne Weihnachtszeit.

Thankyou, Thankyou and Thankyou, you truly have been a Goddess to myself and many, many others, good luck.....

Your courage is inspirational!!!!!Have a great Life and enjoy that wonderful family!

esther_a said...

Angie, I truly appreciate what you have done for us all! I started digi scrapping over two years ago and wasted so much of every day hunting. Then I found your blog and Google Reader. With your help I added the blogs with the best freebies to my Reader. You've been a significant part of my journey! I am glad you are moving on. It's time. I hope you rediscover that passion for scrapping and thoroughly enjoy your evenings doing whatever!

Silvery said...

Young lady, you have courage and wisdom in spades. I loved your parting quote. I got to know your blog when a friend introduced me to scrapping, and then to you. Like you once, I have become a little too obsessed with downloading. i worry not, it will pass. However, the moment I really got hooked on your blog was when yor potty mothed dirty talk pissed off half of middle America - haha. Sorry, middle America, but then I suppose the offended half are no longer here anyway. I bought the Trueblood DVD following your effusive comments, but i will forgive you for that :). Since you've been MIA, you have been sorely missed. However, those who have missed the freebies know they can search for themselves, if only they are willing to give up every evening to do so... You have given enough, girl. For me, I am looking forward to following your future blogs. You follow your heart and I am interested to see where it leads you. Happy 2010 and may it bring you lots of pleasant surprises.

Gemma* said...

aww, such a shame to see the freebie posts go . . . yours has been by far the best site out there . . . but i also have a looong to-do list and can see why you have to stop! thanks gemma :)

Lori T. said...

Thank you Angie for all you've done. I'm glad you're enjoying yourself, you deserve it! Best wishes to you and yours and Happy Holidays! I'll keep stopping by to check in on you.

Jody said...

Your site has been the best site for me to find really wonderful freebies. You always picked quality items.

I hope you will be able to share the google list eventually.

Blessings to you and your family this Christmas and in the New Year.

You will be missed!

Anonymous said...

Best of luck! I found you because of freebies, but I'll keep your blog on my reader list because of YOU. I truly enjoy hearing what you have to say. I hope you post links to your fanfic as I'd love to read it. Your site led me to some of my favorites and also helped get me hooked (for the first time) on all things Vamp. Speaking of which, have you tried The Black Dagger Brotherhood by J.R. Ward? Sometime tells me you might really enjoy it!!! I'm totally hooked. Best of luck with whatever you do! Thank you again for the hours of work you devoted to hunting freebies to share with all of us. My full hard drive sends hugs and kisses. JP

So glad firstly to hear you are all ok and Damien is alright. Secondly.... admire your decision to do what you need to do for you and your family. Thirdly....... a million thankyous for all your freebie hunting and sharing, truly amazing.

I look forward to following your blog regardless of the freebies. Ikea Goddess is way more than just freebies!

Have the most wonderful Christmas!!

Angie, a big thank you to all you have done over the years!! I truly don't know how you kept up with it. I didn't just visit your blog for the freebie links but to read your posts, which I will miss. I do hope you do continue posting when you get some time because I will still be back to visit.

Once again thank you and I wish you and your family a wonderful holiday season and new year.

Best Wishes to you

Glad you're OK. Thanks for the freebies you hunted for us, and shared so generously.....will still visit your blog.

kristine said...

Angie,
It's never good when something becomes a chore. Stopping the freebie list is right for you. Life is too damn short to tie yourself to a computer.
It's been my pleasure to ready your blog and get to know you a little. I'll keep in touch..
Have a Merry Little Christmas my friend!!!

Enjoy life!

Kate said...

I haven't scrapped for ages, but I still scan your posts for non scrappy stuff when it pops up in my reader.

You were such a huge part of helping me get into digi scrapping and I want to thanks you for the HUNDREDS of hours you would have put into this blog.

I forgot to mention - I no longer scrap because it was taking over my life and all of my spare time, so I totally understand!

Take care and I look forward to your YOU posts!

Another Thank you! I enjoy your blog and not only the freebies. Good luck in your writing! I think that is fantastic and hope you can share some day. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

jufanita said...

This is a choice I can only respect. I was a visator of your blog for only some weeks but you really made me enthousiast for freebiehunting myself. Thank you for this and wishing you all the best.

absees123s said...

Thank you for all you've done, shared and knowing that this has taken time away from your family...I commend you on your decision. I, too, am a True Blood groupie, lol..and will continue to read your blog..freebies or not!

Ladykli said...

Whew you have been through a lot these past few weeks. Glad everyone has survived and in time for christmas.

Change is always hard but change is always good! I didn't realize you had been doing this for 3 years, wow!

Thank you for giving up part of your life for us now it is time for you to give to yourself. I took will be checking in. It will be interesting to hear how your writing goes.

Good Luck and God Bless you and your family. Merry Christmas and may 2010 Fucking Rock!!!!! ;-)

Amanda said...

wanted to say thank you for all the freebie hunting you have done over the years! i cant thank you enough!

Christie said...

Hugs to you Angie! You are doing what is right for you and no one can blame you for that.

Originally, I came here for freebies but have so enjoyed your writing and humor that I'll be coming back to see what else you write.

Best wishes to you and your family!

I echo the sentiments--I appreciate all your many hours making digital scrapping easier for us. I loved coming to your site and seeing all the goodies you had found--like waking up Christmas morning EVERY morning! Thank you and best wishes!

Thank you! I've enjoyed all that you shared and completely understand why you need to move on! Good luck with your writings and I'll keep your blog on my reader to see where your headed in life!! Enjoy :o)

Trish said...

Thank you so much for your time and dedication over the past 3 years. You have given our community something great, but all things do come to an end. I am sad to see you go, but I will still keep your blog on my reader, because I enjoy your commentary and your writing style! We share a passion not only for digiscrapping, but for Vampires! I look forward to reading your blog everyday and will still continue to do so. Good luck in your other adventures!

So sorry to see you go! I wish you only the best & thank you for all that you've contributed to the digi-scrap community!!

Amy said...

Angie, We are so glad that you are doing well and are taking the time to do for YOURSELF what you need to do. You've given us a ton of your time, and now that you are doing what you want (and likely need) we are all thrilled that you are moving on to something else that makes you happy. I know I'll miss hearing about your little daily topics ahead of the freebies, so I do hope you'll post on occassion to keep us in the loop! Much love! Amy

Randi said...

Well, I have to admit to being VERY bummed that you won't be posting your awesome freebie lists anymore. They will be missed! Thank you so much for ALL that time and effort you devoted to it for so long. I know it made my day to see my freebies on your list and I'm not the only one who felt that way. I also know I'm not the only one you got addicted to this digi-scrap stuff with your too-tempting freebies :)

Wishing you all the best from here on out. Have a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year, and a truckload of happiness. Take care and be well ♥

Anonymous said...

Thanks for all you've done, and thanks for popping back to let us know. I totally understand why you've moved on. When something becomes a chore, and it's not a necessity, it's time to drop it. Life's too short to feel obliged to do something that you no longer enjoy. I'm happy to hear that you still plan to drop by from time to time to chat about other things. In some ways, it feels like you're a friend, and that I'd hate to lose touch.

You take care, and good luck with the writing contest!

Best wishes & Merry Christmas, A Canuck (Pam).

Nancy said...

There is no way to thank you for all the time and effort you put into hunting freebies for us! You will be sorely missed, but you are making the right decision for you and your family. I wish you all the best with your writing. I will continue to pop in occasionally to see what you are up to. Thank you again and I'm sending wishes for a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family!!!

I was away from my computer for a while and just found this post. I'll be sorry to see you go, and I will miss all your fabulous freebies, but I understand your choice. We all must decide what is most important in our lives.

Thank you so much for all your help in this journey to preserve memories by digi-scrapping. I have appreciated your work very much.

May God bless you in this holiday season.

Your scrapbooking friend,

I just had a feeling this post was coming, lol! thank you so much for your dedication over the past 3 years, I will miss your list but I understand where you're coming from. I will miss you and nobody will be able to replace your freebie hunting talent. Good Luck and God bless!! Happy holidays to you and your family

ESNQueen said...

Thanks for the freebie listings, but thanks for lots of other things! I had heard of True Blood before your postings about it but finally gave in and started watching - and now I'm an addict. :) I'll keep reading just for that reason. ;)

Journey of the Spirit said...

You are so kind to have done this for so long. This post makes me so sad...this has been a regular stop for me for years...a part of my daily routine. One of my favorite things to do. I've tried other sites, and none 'fit' me as well as yours has. I appreciate it greatly - will remember your kindness for a long time to come!

Have a wonderful New Year!

I wish you much happiness. I will miss coming by here each day to see the beauty you had found but I understand one must move on to other adventures in their life! I read this some where just this month and it's so fitting. Don't be sad it's over, be glad it happened. Happy Holidays and take care of yourself!

Thank you so very much :) I love reading your posts and will continue to follow and see what you are up to. Have a very Merry Christmas & a Happy and Prosperous New Year.

Gennifer said...

Angie,

A year ago, I was thinking of trying digital after a three-year hiatus from scrapping. Today, I'm a Garden Girl at 2Peas, and I can directly relate it to you.

Thanks, from the bottom of my heart, and good luck with your future endeavors.

Laura said...

Thank you Angie, for everything. I have often wondered how you had the time to do it all. Have a wonderful Christmas!

Lisa said...

Thank you so much for all you've shared. Sounds like you're making the right decision for yourself, but your freebie posts will be sorely missed. It was also fun to read your edgy side and nice to know I wasn't the only non-right wing christian conservative scrapper out there! ;-) Best of luck to you!
Anyone have suggestions about other freebie sites us orphans might turn to now?

PinkPug,INK. said...

Thank you for all the time you've put into this blog! You won't be easily replaced- we'll miss you! Once something becomes just another thing "to do" & you don't enjoy it anymore it's time to let it go, so you've made a good decision. Have a wonderful Christmas & an even better New Year! :)

Hippiescraps said...

You have to move on and I completely understand it. For three years it was fun to do, but when its getting a 'have to do' in stead of fun, its the right time to stop. Thank you for all you did for the digiscrapping community!
I wish you all the best and great joy with everything you do after this.
Have a wonderful Christmas and a very happy 2010!!

Janice said...

I'm happy for you. It'll be different but we (your avid followers) all have to embrace it because it is what makes you happy. Have a happy Holiday! Stay great Angie!

Beth said...

I wholeheartedly understand... and more power to you! I will MISS YOU though!!! LOL! But you need to take care of YOU and do what's best for you in this time in your life! Your freebie list was THE BEST hands down on the web... thank you for the years of wonderful lists and the fun banter. I wish you all the best!!! {{{HUGS}}}

Thank you for it all Angie from a very grateful little Australian. I'll miss my daily visits to your place but you're in my reader so I won't miss it when you decide to call in occasionally. My hard drive is full thanks to you - maybe its time to stop collecting and start scrapping some of the memories. Merry Christmas and happy memory making with your family. xx Lyndel

Hi Angie! Wanted to say thanks for three years of freebie hunting. When it's no longer fun, it IS time to move on to something else! You've been awesome, and I've been privileged to have been on your blog a few times. Best wishes for a merry Christmas and happy 2010! I'm interested in your intriguing fanfic!

I really understand your decision, my scrapper's heart got a lot of pain - but my reallife heart says - good for you - throw away all chains and live!

Wish you Happy Holidays and hope to here from you sometime in future, that you are doing well with your newly born freedom.

Take care of you!

THANK YOU so much Angie from the bottom of my heart for helping me to get my name as a designer out there. I truly did appreciate it very much. Sometimes we forget that behind every blog is a real person who has a real life and family - we get so use to just clicking away on our mouse and expecting so much out of it. So don't ever feel like you owe the digi-community anything it is US that owe YOU so much.

Have a wonderful Christmas & New Year with your family and very best of luck with your new book and whatever direction life takes you!!

Christmas Blessings.

Well your quote brought me to tears since I was just recently diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer. You will be missed but I will still check out your blogging.

Thanks for all the freebies you have shared over the years.

happyscrapper said...

Dearest Angie,
Joy and sadness. Joy that you are well and that Damien is better. Sadness that you have had illness in your family and that you won't be here on a daily basis. I have so enjoyed visiting your blog and reading little bits of your life. There are freebies galore out there, but your list was the best of the best and I will miss your hard work. We share a love of New Orleans and that made me feel an extra connection with you. Hope a long leisurely visit to the Big Easy will be in your future. I will still check in from time to time to "catch up" on your latest. I wish you much joy and many blessings.

Thank you so much for all you have done for all of us over the years. I admire your courage...not all of us have yet learned to say what we need and to put life and love first when thing get fuzzy and scrubby.

So good luck to you my friend....I'll be watching for updates as they come:)

It's never good when something becomes a chore and you lose your mojo! As a designer, and I know I'm not the only one that feels this way, it always made my day to find one of my freebies listed on your blog. So I thank you for appreciating the quality of my work and sharing it with others. I can also completely understand your need to move on because this is a big job and people are not always good about showing a little love or appreciation and this leads to a major drain on the ole mojo. I'm fighting the same feelings right now so I do understand. I wish you and your family a great holiday season. Enjoy your free time!

Thank you so much for all your hard work! I, for one, have sincerely appreciated your dedication. Enjoy your life from here on out!

Thank you for all the amazing posts, sharing your time and pieces of your life with us. Looking forward to seeing you here occasionally. Good luck with all your future endevours....I'm sure you'll do well as talented as you are. So sorry digiscrapping has become another chore....have cycled thru that myself a couple times. I sincerely hope you cycle back, it's one of those amazing gifts to leave your child. Many blessings for you and yours.

Thank you for all you've done. I've loved every freebie you've brought me. Take care and enjoy the free time.

You've got to do what's best for you - so good on you for making the decision! I stopped coming for the freebies long ago - I just enjoy hearing your take on life, so I'm glad that this will continue! You got me onto Twilight and Project 365 which I'm very grateful for. One of these days when I have time, I look forward to reading your fanfiction. Sorry to hear that your family has been under the weather. Wishing you and your family a fabulous Christmas!
Cheers, AnneH

Thank you for all the freebies. I remember the post when you said that you didn't really scrap much any more and I wondered why you were still finding the freebies for all of us still. Best wishes to you and yours. I hope the new year brings much happiness, new and wonderful experiences and love.

Thanks again for all that you have shared in the past three years. I have been the benificary of the hours and hours of time that you have spent hunting for freebies and sharing them with me. I really appreciate it. If you don't enjoy doing this any longer, it's time to make a change and I'm glad that your doing that. Thanks again for everything.

Paula said...

At first I came to your blog strictly for the freebies, but one day I decided to read something you wrote I laughed and agreed with every word. While you won't be doing the freebie thing I look forward to the post you will be writing. Take care. Have a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year.

How exciting that you are a writer and deciding what is going to bring you enjoyment at the end of long days! I have followed your blog forever and ask myself everytime I check in how in the world you have time to find all these fab freebies and post them. Thanks for everything.

Like others have said - yours was the first "freebie" site I ever found, so it has a special place in my heart! :) I've enjoyed every minute of it (whether I agreed with you or not...lol), and I will miss the regular posts. But I'm keeping you in my blog reader! ;-) I'm just nosy like that! :-)
Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year! Here's to all that the NEW Year will bring! :-)

Bao Mirana said...

Angie,
I do not know how long I did I follow your blog. Coming here was an everyday pleasure not only for freebie but also for everything you shared (a piece of your life, of what you do ...).
You will miss us, you will miss me but whatever, life has to be lived fully for your pleasure and your goals and so on ...
scrap is a hobby, good to share but there are more and more things around you have to appreciate and to share.
Just one word : Thank you !
Good luck for what you decided !
Sweeties !

Ang said...

Glad to hear that Damien has recovered!!! I 100% understand your decision and applaud you for making it. I will definitely keep checking in on you. :) Thank you so much for all you've shared!!!

I was hoping to chat with you if possible... I am seriously considering starting up a site to continue what you have been doing here. It's so high quality and will be missed so much. But I also don't want to step on any toes and would like to know how you feel about the possibility. I posted at DST to see what people might think, but your thoughts are what I care to hear the most!! please email me at christie dot co at gmail dot com
Thank you so much xoxo

Rose said...

I'll be staying!! Thanks for all the freebie hunting you do, I've found a few new favorite sites through your blog, and while I will miss your freebies, I do enjoy your in-between posts, so I'll hang around anyways. Merry Christmas and enjoy your holidays!

Thanks for all you've done for us - you truly stocked my stash! Good luck with your writing - stop back and tell us how the contest went!

Stay frosty indeed. Here in Nebraska we're in the area on the weather map that says, "Paralyzing blizzard." Just waiting for the next part of it. We've had some snow & the wind is blowing like crazy. Wind chill is around minus 20-25. I'm frosty. LOL

Sorry to hear you're giving up freebie hunting, but I can sure see how it would get old after awhile. I'll miss all those great scrappy things but you gotta do what you gotta do. You should enjoy your time off work not feel like you have another obligation.

I'll keep you in my 'favorite' list & check in from time to time and see what you've been up to and if you have posted any interesting rants. LOL

Merry Christmas

Happy Scrap Girl said...

Good luck to you Angie - as a former freebie hunter - I completely understand what you are going through! It does get tedious and a chore - and that's the time when you should move on. Good luck with your writing projects!

Thank you SO much for all your hard work these last three years - it is very much appreciated!

Happy Holidays to you, Christian and Damien! :)

Happy holidays to you and your family. Thank you for a fun ride with all your freebie hunting. Your comments have always been inspiring and hilarious at times!!! Rest up and enjoy your new priorities. Don't look back with regret, but forward with excitement. Many well wishes and hugs to you!!!

nf said...

Thank You, I'm sorry you are not going to be searching for freebies any more, but you will still be on my favorites list. I always enjoy hearing about other peoples lives, especially from other countries. Our lives are not so different after all. It makes the world a little smaller.

Jamie said...

Thank you so much, without you I never would have gotten into scrapping! I appreciate it! Enjoy much needed time off!

Cheryl said...

Thank you for all the freebie posts and I wish you the very best!

Thank you very much for all your hunting! I used a lot of the freebies you've find!
Enjoy your new hobbies as you did with digiscrapbooking!
I whish you and your family a merry Christmas and a very wonderful 2010! Vale

Thanks so much for all the time and effort you have put in over the years to benefit others. It seems it is time for someone else to carry the torch. Hope you keep scrappin!

Thank you for all your hard work getting the freebies each day. It was appreciated. I hope you have a wonderful holiday and that you enjoy your "time"

Lori said...

Angie - Thank you, thank you for all the sharing you have done over the years. You have a been the single blog that I've consistently stayed with . . . first for the freebies to grab, then for the freebies to share and lately for the updates.

On with your life, I applaud you!

Anonymous said...

Angie, thank you so much for all the hard work you have done for so long to keep us freebie addicts going! I for one am very happy for you. I will miss the goodies but I commend you for being able to say no when you need to. Please let us know how you do in the contest. Take care of yourself and have fun. Debby

Kari said...

Hi, Angie--
THREE YEARS!! I don't think I've stuck with any "interest" that long! (Child-induced ADHD, as someone explained to me once. Moms aren't allowed to focus and stick with a project for more than 10 seconds at a time.) Three cheers for the amazing number of hours you have put in and the help it has given us. You're awesome.

Carrie said...

Wow Angie! Three years of freebie hunting!

Just wanted to say thank you so much for all you have done for those of us in the scrapping world. I truly appreciate it.

Also, I love your smut. LOL! I will definitely stick around to hear it. Please let us know how you do with your contest.

Take care and God Bless.

Mari said...

I, too, will miss having you 'around'. I thank you for all the work you put into finding freebies, and the quick little glimpses into your life!
I completely understand how you would be burnt out - people change, interests shift, priorities rearrange. It's all good!

Andre said...

Please keep up with scrapping all your beloved memory's, you are so good at it! Just do it the easy way and use your old layouts for the next year. They don't have to be perfect, because they already are when your own photo's are on. No more freebie hunting for me either, I have enough nice thingies to last me a lifetime. And if I need something new I'll stop by WW or somewhere else for a few bucks. The hunting takes so much time and it's so nice to do other things. Thanks for preselecting the last couple of years, it saved me a lot of time and brought me a lot of nice things to work with.
Thanks again so much and all the best to you with your work, your family and your writing. I'll be stopping by sometimes to see how you're doing and see your lovely son grow (he is the same age as my daughter so that is so recognisible :)

Lots of love from the Netherlands - Gon
(Andre is my hubbie)

Anne R said...

I'm sorry to see you won't be hunting freebies for us anymore - but I completely understand why! You have my greatest admiration for actually doing the digging for as long as you did, seeing as I don't even post on my blog twice a week - or even on a regular basis ;)

You have helped me find lots of great sites for digiscrapping, and even made me curious enough to actually watch the tv once a week at "vampire hour" :) And yes, I know what your favourite Eric Northman quote is... I'm not even sure I would have succombed to the vampire craze if it weren't for you - I'm one of those people who tend to shy away from the popular stuff (I have a vivid memory of me refusing to wear corduroys when _everyone else_ in school wore those back in the day).

So, thank you - for vampires, freebies and for a sometimes fabulously UN-clean language :) I do believe I will be coming back again - whenever I remember that I have a computer, that is.

Chari said...

You are my FIRST site i found 2 years ago and told everyone about! Thank YOU! I think you are hilarious, and REAL. I love that you can say fuck without feeling like you need to edit that for some of us. Good for you. Be yourself! Can't wait to pick up a novel with your name on it! Watch out Steph Meyer!

I have been a frequent visitor to your blog for about a year near. At first it was for the freebies, but then I found myself drawn to what you have to say. It is strange - I don't really know you, and you don't know me, but I really like you! Thank you for sharing your insights and for all the work you put into posting freebies. I often wondered how you had the time to do it and can understand why you are ready to move on. Best of luck to you with writing, and I look forward to reading your stories in the future. -a

Ooooh... It's so sad to hear it. but I totally understand. Thanks for everything you have done for all of us. I think you helped all scrappers around the world a lot. It's a very kind of you.

Angie, while I have loved you and your site for a long time, I've always wondered how you do it. I can't even begin to think of how much time you've spent helping all of us find great freebies. You will be sorely missed, but I'm happy that you're doing what it takes to take care of you. Whatever you do, enjoy it! Many thanks!

Chris said...

Thank you for all you've done for us. We will miss you, but I hope I'm able to read your writing some day. My granddaughter is 12 and loves to read and write. What more could cone ask for?

I too love IKEA and just gave the same girl a catalog for Christmas with the idea that I help her when she is ready for a more grown up room. She still has the winnie the pooh theme I painted all over her walls before she was born, tree house and all!

Not sure where you are in Germany, but my husband and I are sailing to Hamburg in the spring and will stay in Heidleberg for a week. If you have questions in re: the English language...just ask.

Best to you!

I just wanted to say thank you for evertything you shared with us! We will certainly miss you, but I absolutely understand your decision! You're so right to do what you really want to do! :) Thank you very much, best of luck for all your projects and best wishes too for the New Year!

I dropped out of scrapping last year and my 2010 resolution is to try to get back into it. It comes and goes, huh.

I hope you find lots of really emotionally rewarding things to do now that you're not searching for freebies for us.

Well my SWEET, lovely girl, your virtual mother has overdone herself this holiday season and found herself in bed by 7:30 Christmas night and not out of it until 10:00 the next morning! I am now caring for my 8 and 10-year-old stepsons for the week, so I am sure your heart KNOWS why I've not been around much!

Precious Angie, I will continue to frequent your blog as I LOVE listening to your point of view on life and the world we live in. Variety is TRULY the spice of life and we ALL stand to learn something new EVERY single day if we allow ourselves to. I DO look forward to YOUR soapbox moments and I ADORE the INCREDIBLE human being that you are! YOU, my darlin', are REAL! :D

I have you listed on my personal blog roll on my blog, so I shall NEVER lose you and if I miss your post in the beginning, you can be sure that I will catch it down the road a bit! You have enriched my life since finding you and I think about you more often than not! You have found a BIG place in my heart and there you shall remain!

I am THRILLED that you are pursuing your passion and what makes YOU happy. Life is not worth living in a state of unhappiness or if everything we do is a chore, so my hat is off to you girlie for staying the course as long as you have here in SCRAPLAND and, PLEASE, know that this corner of the digital world is a BRIGHTER and HAPPIER place because of you and your GENEROUS heart in helping to make sure that EVERYONE around the globe has had the ability to preserve their MOST precious and PRICELESS memories! MWAH!

Much love to you sweetheart and a BIG, BIG hug,

Hi Angie, es gab nur einen Blog den ich regelmäßig gelesen habe...schade, daß Du aufhörst, ich werde Dich vermissen! Du hast eine mutige Entscheidung getroffen und das finde ich klasse. Es gibt soviele Menschen die in ihrer Komfortzone festhängen und gar nicht mehr fühlen können, was wirklich wichtig ist. Ich wünsche Dir viel Glück und viel Spaß bei Deinen neuen Herausforderungen. Ganz liebe Grüße
