checking in

hey everyone
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the outpouring love and support of my closing announcement. <3

I have a whole bunch of orders, so please be patient as I fill them as quickly and accurately as possible. I do have another job, so I won't have as much time to fill orders as I once did, but I will get to all of them.

I am getting quite a lot of emails asking if I have specific PS products...if you are looking for a certain Paper Smooches product and you don't see it in the online store, it's out of stock and will not be reordered.

THANK YOU for all of your orders :)

Wishing you all a wonderful week
Kim xx

Paper Smooches is retiring

Hello my Paper Smooches family.

2020 has been a challenging year for all of us.
We had to close our paint and wine Studio mid-March. We are planning to reopen in mid-June but that will come with a whole new set of challenges. My son was supposed to get married on May 23rd but had to postpone it until 2021. My Grandma passed away in April and after my Dad’s recent passing, I have been reflecting and evaluating what is important to me. Life is far too precious to be busy all of the time, so I decided to make the incredibly tough decision to retire from Paper Smooches.

Although I am closing down my business, it’s a wonderful thing, not a sad thing. I am proud of myself and honored beyond measure that my art has touched so many lives over the past nine and a half years. Most artists do not get the pleasure of having their art in stores and homes all around the world. I am truly touched and grateful for all of you.

I have a new amazing job and it's a position that challenges me artistically. You will continue to see me around, you can count on that. My kids are grown, we moved into a retirement community and I am ready to simplify. I am really excited about this new chapter of my life.

The PS challenges will still continue and the PS Facebook page and group is not closing down. I want to see you be creative and share your art.

I'd like to say a very special thank you to my incredible design team, they will always hold a special place in my heart. I was so fortunate to work with each and every one of them over the years and I will be forever touched that their art and my art made magic together.

I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything in the world and I am so glad that our lives have crossed paths. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH for supporting my small business. You are appreciated more than you know.
So much love,
Kim
