I have a lot of things to reply to and no sense of which came first so here they all are in random order:


I just came in to walk the silent halls of Crafsterland. I have been silent for so long but this has been such an incredible place for inspiration on so many levels. There has barely been a day that I have not been here. Thank you all for all of your contributions. I am so heartbroken that the great Crafster has been shut down. It has been so much for so many. Even the silent ones. Thank you Mods for Always being there for us. Thank you all for making this place so very special.

<3<3<3<3<3<3


Definitely sucks, I've been on craftster since I was at least 13. Fifteen years.

I will definitely join the reddit you made edelc. And Facebook if anything moves there too.

Yep. I wasn't exactly that young but I've also been here 15 years. Worked on the site for 5. Made amazing friends, some of whom were at or IN my wedding. This just hurts.


I hate the cavalier, casual and insensitive way the devastation of a real community of people was announced.
'A bit of sad news', my Aunt Fanny.
I haven't been on Craftster much in that last couple of years, but I knew it was always there.
So very grateful for Jean, Pam and Kristin and all the mods.....the mammas trying to keep everyone together. Thank you ladies. Thank you so much!

YEPPPPPPP. This kind of attitude in shutting down somewhere we've been for 15+ years and has literally changed lives is in no way surprising to me, unfortunately. This is SUCH a huge deal to so many people and they put in the bare minimum of compassion about it.



Is there a way to mass delete our pics from the photo hosting?

I don't believe so BUT I was opening each image in a new tab, which made it easier than trying to navigate back from the main page.


I just wanted to make a post about the beautiful quilt I got from the sale on EBay from Missing Willow. Its absolutely gorgeous. I intended to make a whole post about it featuring this beautiful quilt but unfortunately I made a stupid maneuver Sunday playing roller derby and broke my leg. So Im up in the hospital making this post right now but I wanted to show my appreciation for it before we close down. Its gorgeous and I cant think of a more beautifully crafted item to remind me of my friends here on Craftster. Im so very thankful for you all.

Ack! I'm so sorry! Derby leg breaks SUCK but almost everyone I know has come back (if that's what they wanted). Who do you skate with?


Also... I've been clicking profiles to see who has checked in and jungrrl, bye and thanks for all the things.




YEEESSSSS...jungrrl will forever be a god to me.


I wub her.

Ya'll. Ugh. I'm so not good at feelings and you're making me want to cry. I've been around. Slowly going through 500+ pages of posts to delete what I didn't want to stay up. It's taken up all of my time. I JUST finished and have yet to prune my messages, which will also make me cry. I will be following along to wherever we find ourselves next. I don't want this to be my last post but it may be, so... I am a better crafter and a better person because of this site. Love ya'll.

2  10/01/13 It's not good-bye, it's see you later! jungrrl moving on from Craftster in Latest News by jungrrl on: October 01, 2013 11:45:17 AM
Is this news? I think so. Maybe you do, too?

I just wanted to let everyone know that I will soon be leaving my job here at Craftster. Actually, my last day will be this Friday.  Embarrassed

On Monday, I'll be starting my new position with the one and only Renegade Craft Fair as their operations manager. I'll be helping run all the day to day stuff and going to all of the fairs, so please feel free to say hi if you find yourself there!!

I'm not sure how much I'll be able to participate on Craftster still although I will stay on as a global moderator. I think once I get past the holiday fair season I'll start peeking my nose back in. (I do have plans to help run another FOC Second Chance swap in January!) Maybe not working on Craftster all day every day will mean I have more time to join discussions in the community and post some projects! A girl can dream, yes?  Wink

Honestly, I've sort of been putting off getting all my feelings about this down into words. Craftster has been my home on the internet for over 9 years and my job/the majority of my waking life for over 5. I love this community more than I could ever put into words and it's helped me become the person I am today. All of the absolutely jaw-dropping creations, all of the shared knowledge, all of the friendliness and general community spirit that comes from everyone here just makes this my absolute favorite place to be. I'm not sure how I'll cope not being here all the time! I know I will miss helping make this great community run as smoothly as possible but I'm very excited at this new chapter ahead of me.

Aaaaand now I have to really keep myself from tearing up. See what you guys do to me?  Kiss Kiss

Unfortunately I don't seem to have ANY pictures with just me and sweets and leah, but I'll leave you with a photo of a lot of us moderators at our mod meet-up in Boston in 2008, which is where I was offered this amazing job. (I'm the one with the flash of pink hair!)

Edit: ok I keep removing the extra http part and saving but then it's still there and the mature filter isn't working :/

You need to use ONLY the matureimg tag and not the img tag AND the mature img tag.  Smiley  Like this:
