Goodbye Miss Ali's

Handmade Cards $3.50 ea

Handmade Delicious Soap only $3 ea

After a year or more of struggling with the idea of giving up my own life for the sake of my family, i have decided to close Miss Ali's down. The time has come, or rather is long overdue, that I pour myself into my family. It was a tough decision to give it all up, but I have tried so hard to cut down, etc and I always find myself getting sucked back into it to the point where my work takes my focus. And that is not ok. So I am saying goodbye to my little business for now. Time for the children, time for our whole family to have a full time mum. Home schooling is going to be a lot more involved this year and I really can't do both. So..... Miss Ali's is having a closing sale over the next few days before i close the doors. Everything in store is marked down, so if you would like any of my products before they are gone, just head over and get them while they are still up.

I want to take this opportunity to say a hearty THANK YOU to all of you who have shown your support to me over the years. Your kindness has been so appreciated and I shall remember with fondness all the friends I have made through my website, designing, markets and customer visits. I look with fondness over the last few years and really have enjoyed all the highs and lows of creating and selling and designing. I will keep this blog going for now, so if you would like to contact me once the website closes, please do so here or through my email if you have it. I won't put it up here as my inbox will fill with spam over night lol. So thank you one and all and who knows when I may be back. For now my web designs will still be available through my dear friend Robin at Boutique Mama and I plan to, as time permits, add new OOAK web designs there. So head over to Miss Ali's one last time while you can....

See You there

Congrats on making a hard decision Ali (well, when the kids are involved probably not such a hard decision!). I had no idea how you ever got all your work done AND schooled the kids let alone ran the house! xo

Hi Ali,
Oh wow, what a decision to make, glad you made the one you are comfortable with. Our children are the most amazing gift we are ever given, I am so happy for you all. Hope you will keep us posted on what your all getting up to in your little piece of paradise up there.

I know just how you feel. It gets overwhelming at times, (esp. when you want to do thigs right). I too have pulled back as my home and family need attention.
