Hello, It's with much regret that I must close my Createful Heart Design etsy shop, effective January 2022. I have received some news about new regulations that will go into effect on this date. Tax requirements that will be imposed upon me. Actually, I will have to close my shop before this date, cause if I don't my shop will be suspended.
We will no longer have any kind of card challenges. I would like to thank all of you that have entered our challenges on a regular basis. And have kept Createful Heart Design as a favorite. And I appreciate all that have made purchases from my shop.
I have for the most part enjoyed every minute of creating new images over the years, since this business started in 2017. This step isn't an easy one to do, as I thought Etsy was going to be my home for many years to come. My heart is sad. And there have been many commitments made, as I have been a sponsor over a the years as well.
Even though my shop will close I have decided to keep my blog up, and I have decided to keep blogging about my images, and what inspired me to do these images. I want to do this as memory of the years that I have been in business. And if you would still like to follow me as I transition into just a regular blog again, I would really appreciate it.
The news about these new regulations was just announced in an email to me, just yesterday. And so I am telling you all as quickly as I have heard about it.
To say that I'm not upset would be a lie. So, as I write this post, my heart is very sad.
You might be asking, will you consider getting back into business at some point in the future? Well, that may be a possibility. But as for now, I must move on.
