Leaving Taiwan. Hard decisions....

Well, its been a heck of a visit. I am leaving tomorrow afternoon. I have had a lot of time to think about things on this trip and have a lot more to think about now that I have been here. Before I met Jean-Claude my plan was to move to Taiwan and live here for a while. If I did not have Scrapbook Royalty, this is what I would do now. There is a lot of opportunity for me here. I can open a studio and teach scrapbooking, or open a store, or ... well, let's just say skies the limit. and I have resources here and it is where I really would love to be. It's hard. Before I met Jean-Claude I was free, had no commitments and could leave the US without any regrets. Not the same freedom now... For those of you that dont know, I moved to taiwan shortly after i met Jean-Claude and because we became serious I moved back after only 7 months. So, I went home and planted roots and now I have Scrapbook Royalty and it is like my baby. I have worked so hard to grow it and commit my life to it and it has given me purpose. But can it support me? I am just not sure... So right now, I am trying to find a way for me to keep SBR and live. Never in my life have i had to support myself. This is a truly new path for me. But it is one that I insist on walking and I know I will be a better person for it. What does the future hold for the Traveling Princess... who knows. but I know I will be a Happy People no matter what!

Now go read this post by my new wonderful friend Suzi Blu. She is an amazing artist and if you scroll down you will see what amazing thing she painted for me for my bday!!
