Parting Is Such Sweet Sorrow

Today is a bittersweet Sunday at Shades. Today we say good-bye to the incomparable Jasia, author of the Weekend With Shades Column, "Captured Moments." For the last year Shades' readers have been treated to exceptional articles on a new scrapbook medium, Digi-Scrapping.

Jasia has covered tips and tricks for creating keepsake scrapbook pages that you could be proud of and for which future generations would be thankful. She's made many converts. We've learned so much from her carefully written and researched articles. Thank you, Jasia!

You've loved her work and it shows in your comments to her articles:

I've been thinking of creating a heritage album for a while, now, Jasia. Thanks for the great tips and links!

You make it look soooo easy! Thanks for the tips and the links.

This is a great description of digital scrapbooking! I do non-digital, so it's nice to see the other side of things.

I've just been freed from coming home with all the "stuff" I collect for scrapbooking with your tip to take pictures of it. What a great idea! Thanks, Jasia.

My personal page favorite - Heritage Albums

Jasia was my first blogging friend when I became a member of the welcoming online community of those who write about family history. She is my BBF still. She's off to enjoy life in her adopted community of St. Joseph, Michigan, and to concentrate on her writing.

Thank you so much, Jasia, for all you've contributed to Shades. I could not have accomplished this without you. Good luck, you will be missed.

I, to am sorry to see Jasia go. However, new places, faces and activities always invigorate, and I wish her the best in future endeavors.

Ah yes, Jasia, your presence here will surely be missed. Thank you for sharing your thoughtful creations and methods with the rest of us. I have enjoyed "getting together with you" each month for a digi-scrapping party!

OMG when I first read the comments on FB I thought Jasia was leaving us for good! I'm sorry to see her contributions to Shade end but I'm glad she will still be blogging at Creative Gene & Discover St. Joseph.
