This is the most difficult blog post I must write. But here goes:
I must close Coordinates Collections.
Please know this decision was difficult to make because CC has been a major part of my life for over 5 years. I didn't want to let anyone down by no longer offering kits. I didn't want my daily interaction with the CC Community on the Message Board and Facebook to stop. But, in the end, family comes first and I know my decision to close Coordinates Collections is the right one for me and my family at this time.
So, what does this all mean?
--April kits will be the last kits to ship.
--Subscriptions will end with the April kits. Any current prepaid subscriptions will be refunded. Any current subscriptions with a 'free kit' offer will be compensated in product in the CC Store for those free kits since there will be no kits to send after April. Those customers who have prepaid subscriptions and/or the free kits promotion will be contacted by email and/or the invoice with the April kits.
--The CC Store will remain open until all inventory is sold (at least until the end of April). You can still place multiple orders during this time and have them all ship at once later in April to save on shipping costs. And, you never know what discounts/promotions will happen during April!
--The CC Website, Store, Forum and Gallery will remain up until at least the end of April. This way you have time to save any work posted in the Gallery. And, we all want to keep communicating on the Message Board for as long as we can, right!?
--There will be no April sketches, Blog Hop, or Monday's Challenges. There will be no more daily CC Blog posts beginning April 1. There are challenges that end in April, and those winners will still be announced on the CC Blog and Message Board. The CC Blog will also post important information about store sales, markdowns, etc. just not on a daily basis.
--The Design Team will post their April kit projects in the CC Gallery when they have them complete, but there will not be 'kit ideas' posts on the Blog for these projects.
It has been a pleasure to work with fabulous Design Team members, interact with amazing customers, and develop long-lasting friendships the past 5 plus years. Thank you all for helping to make Coordinates Collections a fun 'job' for me!
