So, I see that my partner in crime has let the cat out of the bag!

And, yes it's true that I am retiring in a weird sort of way. I have decided that it is time for me. Time for me to go see my grandkids more often, time to travel with The Peddler, and time to take classes and learn how to use all of this product that you have bought from us over the last five years.

Now, there's no need to panic because Jennifer is keeping Mystic Paper open. She has hired more employees (very talented employees I might add). So it will be business as usual at Mystic Paper minus me. Ohh, that stung a little!

I have made so many great friends at Mystic Paper and hope that we can stay in touch. I promise to blog more and you can always find me farming on Face Book. And you'll find me taking classes at Mystic Paper. My first one is this weekend. And smack me if you see me at the cash register.

Jennifer, thanks for the great learning experience this has been. And the laughs, temper tantrums (mine), and learning to appreciate oversized scissors! And, by the way, whens the party? Love you!

Kim, I have not known you very long but I must say I am saddened by your news. I gotta tell you I really have tears in my eyes as I type this. I love Jen too but there is some chemistry between the two of you that makes me happy when I am in the store.

I will be in on Sat to say good bye.

And yes Jen when is the party? Can we have a disco ball? LOL.

Guess I am a little shocked but totally understand the whole retirement thing! Good for you my friend. Do blog more--smile.

I've popped in to blogland so few and far between over the past few... hardly know what anyone is up to these days! Looks like i've missed a lot!
I wish you the very best and most enjoyable retirement! It has been such a pleasure getting to know you & Jen over the past couple of years.
Go enjoy those grandkids & I'll hopefully see ya before you go! (((hugs)))

Yes! We will have to plan a little shindig for sure! It may just take a while to figure out when you won't be in Colorado with those squishy boys. Maybe a little soiree in December? Ah...maybe a little potluck at the store?

Congrats on your retirement. I'm sure you will enjoy the time with grandkids. Now you will have more time to do all those creative things you have been waiting to do. ENJOY!
I'll miss ya!

Keep us posted about the party. I'll bake the cake!

I hate change!!! But I am super excited for you! Enjoy retirement and have lots of fun traveling. I keep telling Chucklebutt we need to retire -- he says we have a ways to go.

Love to You! Hope to see you taking classes.
