*raises hand* as I am a guilty one of not being here anywhere near as often as I want to be. I HATE that I can't be here every day like I used to be. Unfortunately I'm still catching up with being gone in 2022 twice for a few months each time, due to family losses. I am catching up little by little, but just not fast enough for my liking. I am also preaching to the choir I know, and I'm sorry. I just wanted you to know that it isn't because I don't want to be here, it's because I haven't had enough chances to be here.
With that said, I have sent out a couple of emails to everyone I have email addresses for from years past with WrapCandy. Some have come back and I love that. A few have now stated that they don't deal with WrapCandy anymore because they lost their other computer with it, and then they got off doing/making other things because there wasn't a call for the candy related wrapped stuff in their areas anymore. So they didn't think they could help at all with it anymore. I told them that even if they just came in to say hi and let us enjoy their company, they would be a Godsend. I also told them they would be surprised with the fact that they can probably help answer questions, so they would still be contributing. Hopefully one or more of them will come back too.
I have tried to think of things we used to do that we might be able to do again to bring folks back, nothing has come to mind that isn't already being taken care of, that I can think of. Will keep trying though.
I know I don't share anywhere near enough and I'm sorry for that. Again I have just been trying to get my business going with making mockups and listing things. If I don't get it back up and selling things again, I have to quit because I can't keep this up anymore. So I've been trying to concentrate any extra time I have right now, towards doing that, which has kept me away from the forum like I want to be.
HUGS, and here's to hoping things change with me, and the others, VERY soon!
