It's Official...

I am closing down KTM. After a long decision making process and lots of back and forth and sadness I have decided closing is the best thing. With my new job taking up most of my days and wanting my nights and weekends for my family and myself I just didn't have the time to commit fully to it. It wouldn't be fair to everyone if I only put half of myself into it. I think is the best thing for me. I have made lots of life long friends and even met family on the way. The biggest thing I will miss is the people and the daily interaction with them, people from all over the globe.

We are having a big sale so get in quick as it is all selling fast. First in first served.

I went around one of those dear friends today that started as a customer and she gave me the most beautiful gift. Handmade by her which means alot and a card with the most beautiful words in it. It took alot of strength not to ball my eyes out.

I want to thank all my customers and DT members that have contributed so much, especially Nic, without her I don't think I would have lasted as long as I did. She offered her great creative mind, time, love and much more to the running of the site as well as my personal life. She has been a rock and I hope I can only repay her one day. She is another that started off as a friend and turned out to be family, out of everything that was the biggest pay off. Through her I have also met Tess who is the lovliest person. I have got to know others south aussies personally through email as well as interstaters and got to share personal stuff that you sometimes can't talk to about with other people. It is great to know that there is people out there that trust you enough to share their problems and joy.

I have rambled enough and I hope I have covered everything I wanted to. I will always be here if anyone wants to chat privately or openly or just to share our creative sides.

Thanks xx

Here is a pic of the lovely gift Kerryn gave me today.

Hey Toni.

I thought that I would drop in and say hi.

This must have been a huge decision for you and a hard one too.

Glad to see that you have made a new home at Therapy though...:D
