Thanks A Million

We fully expected to re-open the store to the sound of crickets and instead, we were greeted with warm encouragement and support, so thanks a million...

Stamps - Merci Beaucoup / Dies - Merci Beaucoup Die Collection; / Ink - VersaFine Onyx Black; VersaMark / Colouring Medium - Kuretake Zig Clean Color Real Brush / Other - White Embossing Powder

The general feedback on the discontinuation of dies is that many of you are disappointed by this decision and believe me, no one is more disappointed than yours truly! ;)  As you all know, Jenny has taken over complete responsibility of Clearly Besotted, including the finances.  Die manufacturing is more expensive than stamp manufacturing with minimum order quantities that for a company as small as Clearly Besotted, isn't always financially viable.  It's no secret that when I was in charge, I was fortunate enough to be subsidised by my husband so it did not matter as much if the business ran at a loss, however for Jenny, this is not possible, I hope you can understand :)

Thank you for visiting me and I hope your Monday is as good as it can be...for a Monday! lol

Thanks for sharing this beautiful card and the problems you had with your shop. If the financial situation is so difficult as you say (I have no idea how much the manufacturing process costs you), you should make the stamps more expensive. Your designs can easily compete with the designs of other, bigger companies where the stamps are also a little more expensive. As a customer I would totally understand that decision. At last you need to live of what you do - and you and your sister are doing such wonderful things!

Best regards, Lana
