Banners by Lyndsay Announcement









Well, the time has come. I am going to be taking a sabbatical from Banners by Lyndsay. That is really just a fancy way to say I will no longer be working on banner and blog design (or any custom work, for that matter), for the a while.

Wes starts class at AFI on August 20. We will be moving at the end of July. So we are starting the full-time effort of getting our house ready to be rented out or sold. Then there will be the packing, etc. Add newborn Maya to the mix, Finn the 2 year old, and I've got quite a schedule piling up. Once we get to L.A., Wes will be part of a rigorous schedule will often require him to be gone 7 days a week, sometimes 12 hours a day. So the time has come for me to throw in my “freelance-graphic-designer-to-the-masses” hat, and be a full-time mom. Can I do it? We'll see...

I apologize to anyone who has been waiting for me to resume work again, only to find that I am calling it quits. A lot of things happened so fast, and I really appreciate everyone's understanding. I am sure I will still find time to be creative and maybe even get my Etsy site up and running (which I can work on at my own pace). But for now, it makes sense for me to focus on my family. I appreciate all of you who have come to me for work, and have supported Banners by Lyndsay. It has been fun, and I really have met some wonderful people all over the world just by working on their blogs. Who knew?!

Good for you---being able to say "No" is a difficult skill to hone. I'm working on that; ) We will miss your designs, but I'm sure Finn and Maya appreciate Mommy time.
Luvs!

Brava- your priorities are spot on! As much as I wished my blog to be Lyndsay-esque, you know exactly where your talents are needed the most which is what I admire most about you!

Your design work will be missed, but this opportunity is amazing and being a mommy is so important. Enjoy it! Glad I found you in bloggy world both professionally and personally.

And P.S. Good thing I like my blog designs right now....who knew I would need to keep them for a whole 2 years!

Good luck with everything! I know Wes will do great and so will you as a Mom of two. Thanks for sprucing up my blog too- it is lovely!

I think you are making a sound decision....kudos to you! Your creativity will be missed, but I'm hoping you'll still bless us with your blog. You've got to keep at least one creative outlet open, right??? If so, let it be so we can see it!!! : ) I'm grateful I found you when I did because I love, love, love looking at the designs you shared with me!

All my best to you, Lyndsay!

Congratulations to Wes and your family. I know Chris was super excited to hear about the big news. And congrats on little Maya. She is a doll. Good luck with getting everything together for the "big move". You guys will do great things over there!
