Disappointment

Hi everyone! I am back to sewing, so hopefully I will have some things to show you this week. Without drawing this out, I wanted to let you know that a few weeks ago, Studio e called me and cancelled my contract. Evidently they can do that! Which sort of begs the question of what good was a contract anyway? You know I was really sad at first, but all along I had a bad feeling about them. And I certainly do not have their look. I am hoping very strongly to sign with another company and KNOW that it is all in God's hands. His timing is perfect. You know I'll let you know! That being said, if you bought the Honey Sweet cards from me, I am happy to refund your money.

Here are some spring pictures from my garden:



Take delight in the LORD,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Psalm 37:4
Love,
xoxo

So sorry, melissa! Hang in there-- it will all work out!

Needled Mom said...

Bummer! What is a contract anyway? I am sure that things will work out for the better in the end.

AnneMarie said...

Sorry to hear that Melissa. You are a great artist - you will succeed...it's all about the timing right?

Amy, a redeemed sheep said...

I'm sorry. =(

Isn't good to know that God is sovereign and has ALL things in control? And that we are told to cast our cares upon Him for He cares for us? Cast your cares and trust in Him, for He is faithful....

Jenny said...

im really sorry melissa...how discouraging that a contract can simply be disregarded like that. are you taking your fabric back to market in spring?

Lisa Marie said...

It's like you said, it's really for the better. With everything that has happened with this "deal" between last year and now, it really is a blessing that this happened. I know it felt good to have a "home", but you didn't really feel at home there anyway. Now you have an opportunity to go back out there, find a company that fits you perfectly, and take off in this world feeling GOOD about what you're doing. I just know this is a good thing. I know it!

Mama Lusco said...

Hugs to you! You have such great talent. Hang in there and remember that He has great plans for you. It's all in His hands :) Angie

I'm sorry but I'm sure there will be other openings in the future

Tammy said...

So much for contracts,eh?! No worries, God always has a plan and usually when stuff like this happens, it is because the plan is bigger and better! Press on my friend! You shine no matter what you do!

Goosegirl said...

Oh Melissa, I am so sorry. I pray that the Lord will encourage you and bring you the RIGHT company for your designs. You have a wonderful eye and heart and there is much good in your future.

Chris said...

I'm sure there was a reason things didn't work out, and that another avenue will open. Chin up, and go forth with faith.

Katie said...

I'm sorry to hear that, Melissa! You definitely have the right attitude about it. Chin up, you design such beautiful things and are very talented.

Patty said...

Hang in there Melissa, things have a way of working out. I've been without a computer for a few days and I.m sorry to hear this news but better now than later.
Peace
