Goodbye - Shop Closing
It's Time for a New Chapter
Man, I've been putting this email off for weeks. I thought it was procrastination at its finest, but as I sit here to type, I'm realizing it's more sadness than anything. I'm tearing up as a type.
After lots of contemplation and asking for guidance, I have decided to close down North Shore Crafts, as it's currently set up. While I have LOVED teaching you, loved finding this new way of play, LOVED getting to know so many of you (we really had such a great community!), and I've loved this journey, I am being called in a new direction. I have learned so much from you and from wanting to provide a beautiful, loving community. I am coming away from this experience with so much knowledge, joy, and love. I will honor and cherish this time forever.
As for what's next, I'm not entirely sure. This scares me and also excites me. I've been getting guidance to follow my heart and follow my fascinations. I'm trying to lean into the unknown and trust my journey (which is probably the hardest thing I'll ever have to learn, haha). But at the same time, following what fascinates me also sounds amazing. So game on. Let's go. Also, I do get the feeling that art and crafting is still going to be part of my future journey. Just not sure how.
I have 2 more things to ask from you, my friends. First, if you have a few minutes, I'm curious if I've inspired you in any way that led you to feel like you wanted more information? Is there anything that comes to mind that you'd be interested in me leading you? It can be art, creating, spiritual, homeschooling, parenting, self-love, reading, how to change, really any area of life. I have a lot of interests and a wide range of passions so if it feels silly, it isn't, don't hesitate to let me know. Just hit reply with your thoughts. I'd be honored to hear from you.
Second, you can help me by clearing out my inventory! And saving money!! Financially, things are tight, I'm not going to lie. The Super Punch was a large financial gamble that didn't work out. This was also part of my journey and I am grateful for the experience. However, the money gained from clearing out my inventory will be hugely beneficial. Any amount of help you can spare (I know things are tight for a lot of people right now, so no worries if you cannot help), we would be grateful.
I'm setting up a tiered system to allow you to choose your discount! I thought it would be fun! Choose a discount between 10% and 50%, and enter the code at checkout, no free shipping, however.

I'm hoping the punch needle supplies will bring you joy this Holiday season.
We're to the end. 😢 Thank you so very much for following this journey, for loving punch needle, and for trusting and honoring my business these last 4 years. It was a great experience!
I love you all, truly.
May you feel at peace.
May you find ease.
May you feel joy.
