I wanted to let you all know that I am heading into an insanely busy time from now through September/October. Both work (namely my cookie competition, classes, and monthly stencil releases) and personal demands (home renovation, mother having surgery, yada-yada) are hitting me very hard at the same time. The biggest crunch is about to occur, and will have me out of the country or away from my computer for much of July and August.
That being said, I need to make some adjustments to my workload here on the site in order to maintain my sanity, and so I will not be doing Saturday Spotlights on weekends I am working or traveling in June and July. Those weekends are listed below. Manu will also be taking vacation in June, and so her tutorials will resume in July.
The good news is: Much good content will still be coming your way! Prior to leaving the country this weekend, the next challenge and new site art will post. And after I return in early July, the next survey recap and additional tutorials will post. The biggest (temporary) change is in the Saturday Spotlights (again, see the posting schedule below.)
Thanks for understanding the need for this break. Please also understand that I may not be able to reply to site questions in my normal 24-hour window during this time.
June/July Saturday Spotlight Schedule:
June 22 - None (Out of country)
June 29 - None (Out of country)
July 6 - Yes, a Spotlight!
July 13 - None (My cookie competition is happening this weekend! Yay!)
July 20 - Yes, a Spotlight!
July 27 - Yes, a Spotlight! And also a live chat with Shelby Bower (check it out here)!
All for now! Thank you again!
