Taking Time Out...

Hi folks...the first day of August and the cubbyhole crew are officially on their holibobs...I've decided to take some time out from blogging....giving you all a break from our ramblings...the daily posts from this motley crew are going to be put on hold for a while...you're not getting shot of us entirely but the news from the cubbyhole will be as and when...more like Week To View rather than Page-A-Day. I'm planning a "get away from it all" break...a few bucket list exciting treats and lots of doing my own thing kind of stuff...time to relax and recharge the batteries before it all kicks off again with the prep for the Craft Retreat at The Papeterie in September and then before you know...the "blimey where is the year going...Fiskars Workshops at The NEC in November but I will be popping back from time to time with my monthly DT projects..."12 Tags" make...sharing what I've made with the bumper bundle of goodies that Scrapberrys sent me to play with and if all goes to plan...what I'm making with the bundle of new Eclectic Elements fabrics...
And I have some sad news to share...I've decided to step down from the Penny Black Saturday Challenge Design Team ...I joined the team in June 2008 and time certainly has flown...it's hard to believe that was 6 years ago...it wasn't an easy decision to make because I've loved being part of this wonderful team and can't thank my lovely team mates past and present enough for their friendship...support and enthusiasm and all the wonderful sponsors for their generosity over the years.
And last but not least...a big thank you to you all for your lovely comments about my makes this week...I truly appreciate them all but credit where credit's due...the creative process is a whole lot easier and much more fun when you're playing with great products so it's a big thank you to Tim "my favourite Professor" Holtz for sharing his passion and inspiration so generously and bring on this month's tag.
But the grandkiddies will be arriving soon so it's au revoir...not goodbye...we'll be back before you even miss us.
Hugs from the Cubbyhole Team
Kath & Buddy xxx

  6. Hi Kath, we will certainly miss your wonderful ramblings each day and seeing all these great makes you come up with day after day. Enjoy whatever you decide to do each day, but no doubt I will be hitting that button each morning just in case. Hopefully I might see you around at Papeterie some day, I enjoy our chats and my how we could right this old world. Buddy will be looking for more walks, hope the sun keeps shining for months ahead and the boys enjoy lots of Grannie time. Miss you all ready as the saying goes, and yes I will miss your wonderful Penny Black cards, they always make me smile...rish

  16. Hi Kath, enjoy a well deserved break, I'll miss your daily posts. I'm always around even if I don't always comment. I feel like having a break from blogging too. I've taken a bit of a scunner to blogging - not cardmaking! I think it's because my broadband is so unreliable out here in the country.

  18. Hi Kath

    Wishing you a well deserved and super enjoyable break.

    I thank my lucky stars for you every day when I open my blog .. .. for without you and all your help in the beginning my blog would have never existed .. .. and I wouldn't be where I am now that's for sure.

    I have a lot to thank you for.

    Have fun crossing things off that bucket list .. .. and I hope we get to hear what some of the adventures are!

    Thanks again Kath.

    Love and hugs always.

    Jules xoxo
