Letting go and Moving on...........


I am terrible at making decisions about the big things in my life that will have an affect on my life, either good or bad. I will dither, hem and haw, um and ah and generally procrastinate until one day I just tell myself that this is the day to decide.
So.......this is the day I decided once and for all to finish something that has been around for the last four years.  I have hung the Closing Down sign on the door of my website and at the end of this month it will be done.
It is time to move on to other things, new adventures and a time to embrace the fact that our lives can move in different directions no matter how old we are or how established we think our lives have become.
For good or bad it is done and I know it won't be something I will regret.

Hi Jackie,
It's a shame to hear about 'The Back Shed' closing down. However, I know you'll enjoy moving on and life is always full of different choices and exciting new adventures! Thanks for the lovely dolls and goodies over the past few years. Wishing you all the best with your course and in your future endeavors. Take care x

I am so sorry Jackie, it would have been a very hard decision to make. I know good things will come and you will always have your blog : )

Hi Jackie, whatever your plans for the future, I hope it all goes well. You may be closing 'The Back Shed', but at least you took the plunge to open it in the first place, and can look back on what you did - not what you didn't do... I hope that makes sense :) Best wishes, Jenny

Hi Jackie, you are very brave, closing or ending anything we love takes guts and you have them!! It also opens the opportunity for new adventures and new joys. I wish you all that is good for the future. xxxx

I call it 'cutting dead wood'...and am always surprised at the new things that spring forth when I do.

Look forward to seeing where a little pruning will lead you...
