New Blog is coming along.....

Hey, everyone! How is the start of your Spring? I hope it's great! I wanted to stop in and give you the link to my new blog at Roark Design Studio. I hope you can make it over and take a look. I still haven't posted much, but am planning on it, lol!

Bittersweet News..........

.......but the beginning of a new chapter in my life. After alot of deliberation and concern, late nights laden with coffee and discussions with my inner-self, I have made the hard decision to close Signature Vintage.

The decision has been spurred by my desire to finish my degree in digital design (I only have less than halfway to go) and for the fact that the financial overhead involved with the shop just isn't justifying the means, which I'm sure most of you can relate to.

So, what I've decided to do is open another site where I will continue to offer design services such as web and blog design and photography (for local folks). This will give me a chance to build my portfolio in design and hopefully, fuel my depleting income.

I was also recently hired as a cover artist for several book publishers, so with all of that in mind, I just wouldn't have time to keep up the shop. My design business is called Roark Design Studio and I am in the process of building the new site and blog. When I have those done, I promise I will come back and leave a link because I sincerely hope you'll visit me in my "new" place. I will be leaving this blog open, though I think I will only post when I find some fab-tacular (my new word, lol) finds I want to share.

So, if you get a comment on your blog from Roark Design Studio, it's me.....I'm not a stranger, lol!

I'm saddened, but hopeful at the same time. I loved running the shop, but sometimes in life you just have to follow where life leads, and right now, it's leading me in a new direction, one that seems bright and airy.

{all in unison} "Cheers!"
