Well this is a sad blog post to write but here goes. As some visitors to the blog have noticed, we have been having big problems with the website because of the host Webs.com. We have been unable to upload any files or photos to the site, so we haven't been able to update the blog. We could have posted all our Valentine's Day projects as just words but that would have been boring.You can still see them in the photo gallery though and on our Facebook page.
I am not sure when or even if the problems will be resolved and the issue is that the site fees come up for renewal in a couple of days. It would be stupid to spend the few hundred dollars it costs to run the site with no guarantee that the problems will be fixed, so the subscription will not be renewed, unless by a miracle the site is sorted out in the next day. I am not sure what happens but I imagine that the site may just sit here until the domain expires but in case it disappears altogether, make sure you download any of the member files now. I wanted to leave all the files free to download but that would have taken too long to sort out unfortunately and it is unclear what access will be available after the subscription deadline.
All downloads will be sent as they are automatically processed, so if you have them in your basket they should go through as normal. If not, then contact me via Facebook page.
Anyway, I am not sure at this stage whether the site will be resurrected somewhere else, there is just too much information to do it all again in it's current form and the site material cannot be migrated to another platform. However, we may pop up again somewhere else, I am just not sure at this stage. We will still appear on the Facebook page which you can like on the button on the top right and will announce anything important there.
So all that remains to do is to thank you if you have supported this site over the years, I was going to send an email blast to all of the more than 3,500 members but I guess that would seem too final, so I will say goodbye here. It has been a lot of hard work for me but also a lot of fun. I have loved sharing my creations with anyone who has stopped by for a look and we have had so many wonderful comments and contributions over the last 7 years.
If by a miracle we can get the issues sorted then you can ignore all this stuff above but in case it doesn't, thanks again and onwards and upwards!
