Sad news...

With sad regret, as of December 31st, I will no longer be posting new sketches and inspiration here at So Sketchy!. I don't feel like the site gets enough participation. I have invested a lot of personal time over the last year and half and are feeling like So Sketchy! is no longer needed.

We will have one more month of inspiration, December and then the site will be removed from public view.

Thank you for all your clicks to visit my sketch site. It's time to move on to something new.

Please scroll down for new sketches and inspiration.

Awww Ally, I'm so sad to hear that!!! I've always felt like SS is a hidden gem that not many people seem to know about. You will be missed!

Rachel said...

that makes me sad! I subscribe through bloglines and look at each sketch. I sometimes create with them but just don't post that I have. Regardless, this is one of my go-to places for inspiration and the site will be missed.

Nathalie said...

SAY WHAT??!!!!!!!!! I am going to be so sad as your sketches were some of my favorites out there!!!!!!! I hope that you will still create sketches (maybe I'll have to stalk Scrapbook & Cards Today's blog more often! ;)
But, on a more serious note, I can totally understand your decision and your desire to move on... if you ever publish those sketches in a book (hint, hint) I want to be first to know! :D

Sorry to hear this news! I'm guilty of looking at/using your sketches, but not actually posting. Most often, it's months after the fact that I get to use one of your sketches - and really, they're wonderful inspiration.
So - thank you for all you've done for this site. Best wishes in all your scrappy endeavors!

Kelly Schelske said...

Oh no, I just found you and subscribed in Google reader...even printed off the card sketches to get on creating!

Marie with a :-) said...

;-( I don't post here (mostly because I lack confidence!) but I LOVE your sketches, and have been following your blog since I discovered it.

StaZ said...

That's sad news indeed! Best wishes in all your future activities!!

Angela said...

I'm so sorry you won't be posting your sketches anymore. :-( While I don't leave many comments, I do subscribe to your blog through bloglines and have enjoyed every single sketch you've posted. I will be sad to see you go.

Glynis said...

That's so sad to hear!! I love checking your blog for inspiration and have been dying to use this as a jumping off point to get me started again once my little one lets me have more free time. Wish you luck on your next indevor and hope this isn't the last we see of you.

Scrapamum said...

I too am sorry that the site will no longer be. I also confess to coming here for inspiration but lack the confidence to post anything I've created. I'm still a bit of a newbie. Good luck with new endeavors!

MaryAnn said...

Oh noooo! Ally, I love your site and all your sketches! I honestly use them all the time and have just never posted them here (I'm sorry, just lazy). I'll be following your "something new," that's for sure! Best of luck to you! You really are the best. :)

Kendra said...

I'm so sad :( I haven't been scrapping much but I visit your site all the time and have your print-outs in my must-have stack of scrappy supplies. I'll miss seeing all your wonderful sketches and the design team inspiration.

mica said...

Oh no, how sad! I am a big fan of your work and your sketches... But I understand. I will continue visiting your personal blog and We Scrap. Thank you for all you have done thru So Sketchy.

hugs,
mica

Zoe said...

I'm Sad that SoSketchy will be no more, but I do understand sometimes we need to move on! Absolutely LOVED being a part of all this and thanks for having me. {{{HUGS}}}

Tanya C said...

I am saddened to hear this but know the decision is something you would have put great thought into. Thank you for all the wonderful inspiration you have given through the past - SS, you will be missed.

{Sarah} said...

Oh Ally =( I'm so bummed about this, but certainly understand. For the record, I LOVE your sketches and DO look at them and DO save them and DO use them, I (like others have mentioned) just don't link them back up here to enter contests, I wish I would have now though. Hopefully you'll still grace us with your sketches over at WeScrap! ;)

Ilene said...

I am so sorry! I just found your site last month and absolutely LOVE your sketches...they are among the best out there!!!

Michelle said...

Another bloglines subscriber here. I am in a scrapbooking lull, but that doesn't stop me from looking at layouts and sketches and saving them in my folder for future use. You will be missed!

tallulah1 said...

This deeply saddens me as I just have found your wonderful site and Awesome sketches!!!!

Susan said...

SO sorry to hear this. You're sketches are so great and this site provides lots of inspiration! I will miss you!

Bev said...

Awww Ally.. i just found you...and thoroughly enjoy your sketches... you are so talented...you will be sadly missed... be sure to let us know where and what you are doing so we can follow you around.

Aphra said...

That IS sad news, Ally! I have loved being a part of So Sketchy and will miss your sketches and the site. Thanks for letting me be a part of it. Good luck with your new scrappy endeavors!

Jessica G. said...

I'm so sorry to hear you will be closing up this site, Ally! You've done a wonderful job with the sketches and I will definitely miss the inspiration.

Best wishes on your next venture and be sure to keep us posted!

tina said...

UGH! I'm so sorry to hear that, Ally. I so love your sketches :(

Nicole said...

I am so sad to hear this Ally..I have loved being part of your team this past year, but understand how much work it is.. :(. I am glad we got to work together as well as all the other sistas!

Theresa said...

That's a huge bummer. I love your sketches. I think they are some of the best out there. I've posted a few layouts and try to make comments but life gets busy. I hope to continue seeing your sketches in other places. You are very talented.

Michelle Galloway said...

OMG! Sad news is damn right! WHAT Ally! I will so miss this site, I love, love love your sketches! And having to wait each month to see them in SCT, it will feel like forever, I hope you'll have 20 sketches a month then to get me through! I'm so sad to hear your losing your mojo.....Maybe you just need a break! You are so creative and sometimes when it becomes your job sort of say, your passion can some times be drained! I hope your new and improved thingy is just that.....new and improved, I believe you will be back with a vengenance!

amylynn said...

Oh so sad.....love your sketches....don't always get to play. You will be missed!

Anonymous said...

I am sorry to hear that you will be leaving. I use lots of your sketches, and print them out for the future. You give me lots of inspiration. Like others l do not post my creations, l do not have a blog. You will be missed

Tara said...

You do know that I am your number 1 fan and I will be here for you in whatever you do. I love your sketches and your creations. You've done an amazing job with this blog and have provided inspiration and a great starting points to so many people. ((hugs))

Phoenix said...

Sad news, indeed. I've been following this blog for months and can honestly say your sketches will be missed. Please be sure to let us know where we will be able to find your wonderful work come January.

Vivian said...

That's too bad, Ally! I've been regularly inspired by your sketches since I found you via Sweet Pea Scraps. My apologies for not posting more. Thanks for all your hard work on the site & good luck in your future projects!

Michelle said...

Allison, I am so sorry to hear this.. I recently in the last few months found you.. I totally understand why. I do love your sketches!!!

Jennifer said...

So sorry to hear that you are closing this site, but totally understand your decision. Thank you so much for all the wonderful sketches. I only found you a few months ago and I too am guilty of using your sketches but my lack of computer knowledge has kept me from participating fully. If there is not a gallery on site, I shy away. :( I have this site book marked and check in every morning. Please know that I very much appreciate all your dedication to this awesome site. I will still be looking out for your sketches in hopes of you being a guest DT member. Thank you so much for all of your inspiration!! :)

Colleen said...

Sorry to hear this Ally! Your work is wonderful and I know it's appreciated by many... Hope you continue your creative endeavours!

Cheryl said...

oh noooooooo, say it isn't so!! I love your site. I use it all the time, I just don't post my layouts here (too lazy mostly). Keep us posted on what your something new is please.

Welcome said...

This is so sad ally...your sketches are a inspiration and just love them. You rock my friend...good luck on your future stuff ...so sketchy will be missed

Cori said...

Awwww bummer - I just found your website! I LOVE sketches!! It looks fantastic, but I'm sure it's very time consuming. I'll take it all in while I can!

Melanie Wilkerson said...

I'm sooo sad... :(

Jessica said...

So sorry to hear that! I love checking out your sketches. Good luck in whatever you decide to do next!

Marissa said...

As many others have already said, your sketches are a great source of inspiration. Your blog will be missed. Good luck with your future prospects (with your talent you will go far) I hope there might be a book in the making!!!
Good luck Allison. Your blog will be missed by me

Rebecca Ednie said...

I am so sorry to hear this sad news. I love your sketches but sadly I didn't get to play them nearly as often as I had hoped. There are just so many challenge sites out there! I think the ones with prizes seem to be the ones with high participation. I will miss this blog and hope you will keep it up so we can all at least enjoy the sketches already posted!

Nora said...

Talk about bad timing on my part! I just found you today & was putting you in my Sketch Blog List on a new blog I began for people looking for just this sort of thing. I'll put you up there & note that you're closing down on the 31st of Dec.
-hugs-

Laura said...

I am so sad to hear this! Your sketches were always so inspirational! I know whatever your next endeavour will be you will excel at it!

Charlene E. said...

I too am a guilty one for saving your sketches for a later date when I'm stuck. I even made a whole new file folder just for So Sketchy sketches. I'll miss you and this blog. Good luck with new and exciting endeavors.

JaneAnn said...

You will be missed. Thank you for so many sketches. I refer to them often. THANK YOU!

pattiwest said...

This is sad news!! I just started following you...now I feel like I'm really going to be missing out. :(

robin lachnit said...

this is just awful!! I understand your need for something new.. but I'm very sad to see you go, I've been a fan of yours since Sweet Pea Scraps. I'm going to miss this!

Angie said...

Hi Ally, This is so sad to hear I like many others i love to stalk your blogs... all three of them. I even have them bookmarked in my itouch, I can't seem to get enough of your great creations. I am hoping you will still be around and you will still do some of your outstanding work in the future. A break is always needed to do something new and exciting, you are a busy woman.. I wish you the best in everything you want to achieve and hope to still see some of your work on your personal blog. Take care my friend, sending lots of love!!

Brainybairn said...

It's sad to hear that ally! To be honest, I think it is a lovely site and am actually very inspired. I would have joined in the challenges if I knew about it earlier! When I did find out (from wescrap.) bout it, I was way too busy to participate. I can see all the effort you have put in and your talent! Sad to see this come to an end!
