9th & Bloom has shut down

Hey everybody,

It's with a lot of sadness I have to tell you all that 9th & Bloom is to be shut down immediately because of an ownership malfunction (! No other way to put it!) regarding Paypal.

Please do not try to checkout with any of my designs, as you will not be able to process it through to completion, and if you do, the download links will not process, and I won't be paid anyway :( It is the same for all designers there at the moment.

It's been a thoroughly alarming 24 hours and I am SOOO not into all this drama and chaos. I'm without a shop for the time being, and it's still too early to announce any decisions regarding the future of Brine Design scrapbooking kits. I'm thinking I'll retire them for the time being, I'm feeling so completely gutted from this.

I'm sorry for any inconvenience you may have had at the checkout for the past 24 hours. I'm still not aware of the full extent of it all.

I'll continue my blog and will announce any decisions on here, or on the facebook page. So stay with me!

So sorry. I've followed you since finding you in one of those designer challenges. I suspect you won't be homeless for long, if you choose not to be.

thank you for such lovely words of encouragement :)

Oh, Katharyn, I don't pay much attention to all this shop stuff, but this is just so sad, especially for you. I am like sbpoet above and have also watched you through all the contests and I know how hard it is to set up shop and just get stuff uploaded...I am just real sorry for you.

Why don't you email Vicki at OScraps and ask for a guest spot for November? It's a good match for you store-wise and if she can't do it, then Joyce MScraps and their store Ct would also be a good match. If you have a super-good trustworthy pal in the northern hemisphere to share your secret code, you can upload 24 hours a day to get your store stocked. :)

I hate to see you so disheartened.

Thanks Lime, sounds like you know exactly what I'm talking about :) Thanks for the suggestions, both excellent places who are most likely full to capacity, lol! With 9th and Scrap Matters closing at practically the same time, it's going to be hard to find another home, that's for sure! I am still deciding which direction to take, I miss scrapping about my family an awful lot!
