TAC is folding its wings...

The Angel Company closed it's doors today. My heart is sad but I am extremely grateful for all I learned from all the fabulous people I met while being an angel. I was lucky to get involved with such a great company that had such great stamps. More importantly, I was so lucky to make so many wonderful friends!! Don't worry - I' m still going to be here blogging and creating and learning and teaching and filling custom orders but my days as a TAC demo have come to an end.

Thank you to all who have supported me while being an angel! It has been a pleasure for me to share our products with you. Oh and there will be a final TAC blog hop on Sunday so please check back to see fabulous creations made with our fabulous stamps and products - there is going to be so much Inkspiration!!!

Here's the official announcement from TAC:
It is with great sadness that I must announce we are hanging up our wings.  These past several years our industry has faced enormous challenges and as a result, we have seen many companies close their doors.  We continued to hope we could see The Angel Company through this recession and back into prosperous days and we held onto this hope as long as we could.
One of the largest challenges affecting each of us is our industry not being able to support all of the direct sales companies in our field.  Even in a healthy economy, we are a niche market trying to compete for a very limited number of distributors.  As a small company, this has been a grueling challenge for us.  Times are tough for everyone ~ in direct sales and retail environments.
I would like to thank each of you for being an customer and Angel these past 14 years.  Indeed, it has been a pleasure to serve you.
The Angel Company

Hope you guys have a great heart just isn't in it right now. I can't even go into my craft room. I'm planning on doing a TOTAL overhaul in my room and start fresh! Keep me posted what you all decide to do as I'd love to still get together for quality time :D
