I want to say a massive thank you to every single one of you who has reached out to me. I have been really touched by your messages, emails and pms, I really appreciate each and every one of you for taking the time out of your day to write to me. You have been so kind to offer me your advice, support, best wishes or to just let me know that I am in your thoughts. I am so sorry to hear that some of you are going through the same heartbreaking situation, I would not wish this on anyone and I hope that we can all make it through this awful time.
On a happier note, I have 2 projects to share that my awesome design team have created recently:
Helle has made a gorgeous card from 3 different freebies, one of which is brand new! There is a super cute story behind this card too which you have to read, here’s a sneaky peek:

I am aware that I have seemed rather absent for a little while, the unfortunate circumstances are that my fiancé suddenly passed away. He was only 33 so it has been a complete and utter shock. We were completely inseparable for over 11 years so at this point I don’t know how I can even start to come to terms with this let alone how to face the future without him. The one thing I do know is that I need to get back to work as right now I need the distraction and moving forward, I will need a reason to get out of bed each day.
So, I have been working on a new collection, it is one that I have had planned for some time and hopefully it will be with you fairly soon.
In other news, Facebook have removed vistor posts from the front page of the Birds SVGs Facebook page where you usually share your projects with me. So, I have created a Bird’s SVGs Facebook Group! I would love it if you would join, you can find it here: The Birds SVGs Facebook Group
Also, I am considering a change of terms for my files to include online advertising and sales for your completed projects, I will post about this very soon.
Finally, I would like to thank my completely awesome Design Team for being so lovely during this time and for continuing to create wonderful projects which has helped to bridge the gap while I’ve been inactive.
I was recently invited to feature on Julie Fei-Fan Balzer‘s podcast, I was incredibly honoured that Julie asked me to participate and although I was extremely nervous I just had to accept.
If you aren’t aware of Julie’s work, she is a mixed media artist and teacher, Julie also has a range of craft products and is the spokesperson for the ScanNCut in the US as well as popping up on TV screens. All of that is probably just scratching the surface I wish I had half of Julie’s energy (and talent)!
So if you’re curious about who I am, what my real name is, how I got started in papercrafts and to see a rare photo of me check it out: http://balzerdesigns.com/arting/057-cutting-remarks-with-bird/
I’m aware that Halloween is over for this year but Nicky has some great Halloween Party Decor ideas for you to use in upcoming Halloween seasons including a fun extra large Tombstone using a cut file and a cardboard box.
Nicky has added a photo of her and her Husband’s costumes, they are so cool! Check it all out here: http://nickywithstripes.blogspot.co.uk/2016/11/halloween-decor.html
