I have loved the time I've spent as a Select Artist here on TSR, but now it's time for me to step aside and let some up and coming talented artist take my place. I have found myself in a position where I must choose between the priorities in my life. First off, I recently got a new job. It's a GREAT job, but my office is now a windowless cubicle and I spend much more time in front of the computer than I did before. To come home and then spend more time in front of the computer is a little more than I can bear. Summer is coming and the sun, fresh air, and bike trails beckon. I'm also a single mom and every moment I spend in front of the computer takes away from the time I spend with my son. That's a choice that I'm no longer willing to live with. Lastly, a friend of mine is nearing the end of her life, dying from cancer. We are now witnessing her last days on this earth. I have come face to face with what is really important in this, friends, home, faith, among others. Upon examination of my own life and my priorities, I find that a computer game doesn't really come near the top of the list. While I get a great deal of satisfaction out of the things I create and the fact that other people like them, it doesn't compare to the beauty of the smile on my son's face, or the sound of his laughter when we're having quiet conversations about whatever makes us happy.

I may still submit occasionally, when the inspiration strikes me and I have the time. I want to thank everyone who has downloaded my creations and give me such positive feedback and encouragement. This would never have been as much fun without you.

See ya!

I posted in the forum then noticed that you no longer have access to it so this is what I posted:

There is nothing much that I can add that hasn't been said so nicely by others.

I wish you well and all the best and understand your decision for retiring. Hope to see you around in the future. \:\)

P.S. I took a look at your mini site and saw that you have some really great stuff for me to download.
