The Time Has Come...

Hey, all you fabulous guys and dolls, I have an announcement to make:

The time has come for me to take a break, probably a really *long* break, from Fishing and Wishing.

I have had a very serious family crisis developing over the past several weeks, and as I'm sure you have noticed, it has caused me to spend less time here on the blog. I haven't been posting as much or promoting the current giveaways anywhere near as much as I should.

Things are not going to improve anytime soon, and even more is being heaped onto my plate, now that my son is having some medical issues, and we are starting a new year of homeschooling tomorrow (well, today now).

I need to take this time now to focus on my family's needs.

I don't know when I will be back to posting new giveaways and promoting more lovely Etsy shops. I have had a great time this summer, bringing all kinds of fantastic prizes to you. It's been a lot of fun, and I hope you have enjoyed it as well.

For the three currently open giveaways, I will let them run their course and announce the winners on the ending dates shown on the right side. However, I will not be starting any new ones, until life gets a little less crazy.

I hope you will add Fishing and Wishing to your blog reader, if you haven't already - it won't take up any space if I don't post, but if I DO start posting new giveaways, you'll find out much more quickly that way.

Thanks for taking this ride with me. I have appreciated each and every comment you have left.
