As I've mentioned a few times, I started an illustration business back in August of last year.
I've been kept incredibly busy and occupied with it, creating new pieces, running my shop, taking on commissions etc etc. and have felt increasingly guilty about not having any time to run this blog.
I have a lot of big plans for myself and Miss Magpie Designsand I don't want to feel I am stretching myself too thin and producing half-hearted work. This sounds very selfish but I have found something I really truly love that could potentially become something special for me, and I feel that it's important to focus on it.
Because of this, I have decided to retire Design and Nonsense. I will not be deleting the blog as I have put a lot of my time and effort into writing it, as have my lovely guest posters, so it will remain live. I just won't be posting any new content unfortunately.
I really hope my loyal readers understand my reasons. I have come across some very talented people and am proud to have featured some of them here :-)
For those of you who wish to follow my journey, you can join me on my Facebook page, follow me on Twitter or even drop me a line through email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have loved posting for this blog, coming up with tutorials and fun things to try. I hope you all continue to make use of past posts and will always be inspired.
Take care all and please don't be strangers. I'd love to have you all over at Miss Magpie's place :-D
