Craftin Desert Divas Is Closing

It's with a heavy heart, that I came to a decision to close Craftin Desert Divas. Many of you are not aware, but I've been dealing with some family difficulties for quite some time now.

I normally don't share much of my personal life, but I wanted to let you know the reason I've had to make such a difficult decision.

My Mother has been sick with Alzheimer's for quite some time and as it progresses, I really need to be there for my Mother and Father.

I hope you all understand that family comes before anything and I don't want to have regrets later that I didn't do as much as I could or spend the extra time with her.

Thank you for all the support you've shown me over the years. I'm having a going out of business sale and would greatly appreciate your final support in helping me clear out my inventory. I'll be clearing out my craft room and turning it back into a spare bedroom for any future needs.

Thank you so much!

  5. I was a caregiver for my sister for 5 years who had early-onset Alzheimer's and then my father who had Alzheimer's. It's a terrible, terrible disease and I'm so sorry you and your family are going through this. As you know, they call it the long goodbye and that is the truth. I'm sorry you have to close your business, but it is completely understandable. Best wishes💕

  6. I am very sorry to hear about your mother. I wish you the best of luck with everything. Prayers for you and your family. Please take care of yourself and know that God has this and that there is a reason for everything even though we many not see it right now.

    What are you planning to do with your actual crafting supplies? Will you be selling them? I noticed that there were lots of catagories on the website that were empty. If you plan to sell any of your personal crafting supplies that you used to create cards, scrapbooking supplies, ink, stamps, stencils, etc. I'd be very interested in buying some!

    With love, Krystal From Overby Designs
