I love that you know yourself and situation well enough to know when it's time to close a chapter... and begin a new one. Hope the time away is blissful indeed and full of beauty all around.


Exciting change Tracy! Have a fun weekend-it sounds lovely! x

Tracy, I hope your husband has a beautiful birthday and that you both have tons of fun celebrating!

Your new pieces are so gorgeous! And yet I understand why you've reached your decision to close your shop. What a peaceful Christmas you'll have this year!

I'm excited to see where your creativity and spirituality takes you next!

With lots of love!!! xoxoxo


happy birthday Mr Purl, hope it is a very special one.
sorry to hear you are closing your shop, but it sounds like you have thought it through carefully and are doing what is best for you. take care and have a very lovely weekend x


When a door closes, another window opens. The best is yet to come Tracy!


It sounds like you've given the whole thing lots of thought. I always think you need to do whatever it is that makes you happy -- so look ahead to new ventures and never, ever look back with regret. I'm so glad your blog is going to be around though -- I'd miss you!


Hello Lovely.
Sorry to hear you haven't been well, hope you are feeling much better now.
And I'm so sorry I haven't been in touch much lately, so much going on at the mo.
I know you won't have taken this step in your life lightly but I am excited to see what comes next. Oh Christmas time without a hectic shop, I can't even remember what that is like now! I often secretly wish I could have a quiet Christmas time back but *hush* don't let it get out. *Giggle*
Happy Birthday too to TJ, hope you both have a wonderful wonderful weekend.
Sending you lots of love & I hope your dad is doing really well.


Hi Tracy!
Running a one-woman shop is so hard. Everyday I must balance my own spiritual happiness with need to make money. Though my secret is to concentrate on doing things for others rather than money and it always makes me happier. I do greatly respect your way of thinking and I think you are so positive and motivated.
I can't wait to see photos and read your blog posts for your new activities in future! :D
Have a lovely weekend!


A new door opens. Wishing you all the best. Have a wonderful weekend.


Hello Tracy!
Although I am sorry to hear you are closing your shop, I have a feeling that you have thought it out well and it will be good for you in some way. I am so glad that you will continue with your blogs. Best wishes for you and happy birthday to Mr. Purl. :) Enjoy your getaway!


Happy Birthday to your dear husband, Tracy! I totally understand your reason for closing your etsy shop. I'm sure the new direction you take will be worth it, and spiritually rewarding, to boot! ;)


Tracy, I am sorry to hear about your shop. But, change is good. I am glad you already have new adventures in motion. I hope yall have a wonderful weekend!


Glad you're feeling better and that you have a lovely weekend planned. May you receive blessings and more bliss from your simplifying.

I wish you all the luck with your restful time ahead, a good time to re-focus and re-charge. Have a super weekend, and I hope your Dad continues to improve, C x

Hi Tracy I hope you have a wonderful weekend away celebrating your husband's birthday. Best wishes for all your plans .... sometimes it takes more courage to give something up than starting something!! Love, Anne x


I firmly believe that when one door closes another one opens. I think that allowing yourself the time to recharge and explore new directions is the absolutely right decision. I try and advocate this for Steve... but it's so hard to make changes.

Above all I'm so happy to hear that "Pink Purl" will remain your home and a place you share your life and creativity with us.


While the shop is closed, you may get flooded with all these creative ideas for new designs for Christmas. Wishing you all the best, glad you are feeling better too, Tracy.

Hi Tracy! I hope that you're feeling better. No more sniffles! And enjoying your weekend away. Your checklist sure sounds great to me! ; )


Tracy, I am glad you are feeling better. I hope your husband has a wonderful birthday. I admire your ability to change your creative path and find a new outlet for what you are obviously so talented at. I love your jewelry and hope to hear you are still creating it. I hope your weekend has been relaxing.


Tracy I hope you had a wonderful time exploring your favorite coastal towns and celebrating your husband's birthday!

I'm sure you will continue to create and I look forward to see your new venture. We all need change from time to time and I'm happy you have new dreams in the making.
