All Good Things Must Come to an End …

…and it’s time to say goodbye.  Pretty sure this is not a big surprise to the few of you who may still follow this blog (are you still out there?).

Life is full of surprises with many highs and lows.  And during the past year, my life has had many changes.  I’m still selling on eBay but my sales are almost non-existent, maybe 1 or 2 a month.  I also tried my hand selling on Amazon, but have now closed that account.

Instead I’m focusing more on my family, especially since my DD and 2 GDs have come to live with me.  This has been the biggest change in my life and I am thrilled to have them back in California.  It’s been 10 years since they moved out-of-state.  My GDs are now teenagers and we have been spending as much time as we can together and getting to know each other.

I started this blog over 6 years ago with the goal of sharing my experiences selling online.  And, hopefully, in the process help others as well as learn from other sellers.  I met many great folks in the process and learned so much.  Sadly, since my online business has become dormant, I don’t have much fodder for this blog.

As much as I will miss blogging about eBay and the trials and tribulations of online selling, I am thrilled to be able to have more time to spend with my family and get back to my quilting.  I have pretty much neglected my quilting blog  (Quiltpiecer) for the past five years and look forward to blogging about my quilting adventures.

I will continue selling on eBay – after all, it’s been a part of my life since 1999 – but nowhere near the volume of the past 6 years.  And if there is anything exciting to write about, I will post it on my quilting blog.

It’s been great fun, but it’s time to say goodbye.  I wish you all the best in your business endeavors and much success!
