A Thank You and Goodbye

After a couple of years of designing blogs I have decided to close up shop. I am SO appreciative of all of the support I have received! I have discovered a lot of great blogs and had a chance to be creative. I never used to think of myself as a creative person and Sweet Simplicity Designs helped me grow in that area.

With a baby on the way, I know I will not have the time to devote to it. But, really I had become burnt out on it a little before the baby. Blog designing and installing is extremely time consuming and I found it taking up a big chunk of my evenings and weekends.

As a thank you to everyone for sending clients to me and for encouraging me along the way I am going to be giving away two pre-made design templates. The templates can be viewed here. To enter the giveaway, please leave a comment below.

  16. Sweet Lindsey...I am so sorry to hear you are closing up shop! Why not just be very selective of the clients you take and how many? You are too talented! I want to be you! We all do!
    I hope you bring your amazing eye for color and creativity to your nursery and decor. I can't wait to see what you come up with!

  23. Completely understandable given your super exciting bundle of joy that will be here soon!

    However, I am sad to hear you're leaving the blog design business. I've been dreaming of starting a blog, and finally decided that it HAS to happen in 2012. I had your blog design skills in mind since your simplistic style and colors are so reflective of my own likes!
