This past Sunday I received a very sad email from Carolyne Roehm. She is closing down her Presentations website as the times change. First Charlotte Moss and now Carolyne, what are we traditionals going to do?! While I have been a HUGE fan of all CR's site offers and have placed a number of orders I am happy she will be pursuing other things (the Best & Co. line will be nothing short of amazing). Shop now for a great selection of papers, ribbon and accessories all at unbeatable sale prices! If you have not bought from CR before I assure you her products are of the highest quality and her wrapping paper is comparable to only the best on the market today. We will miss you Carolyne Roehm!!Dear Friends,
If you are a baby boomer like me you will fondly remember the "so long" song at the close of every Mickey Mouse Club show - With Annette Funicello, front and center in her Mickey Mouse ears. Well, the time has come for those of us at Presentations to say goodbye.
The close of 2008 has been a watershed for many of us - an eye-opening, sobering, perhaps even exciting moment in history, a time for reassessing our lives and priorities, and (as we have heard over and over recently) a time for change.
Five years ago, when I began the Presentations website I wanted to achieve several things. First, I wanted to prove to myself that this old dog could learn some new tricks – enter into the 21st century and embrace the world of the internet and e-commerce. Second, I wanted to create a beautiful website. At the time, in my estimation, there were not many visually arresting sites, and I am so proud of what we accomplished. Last, I wanted to not only "sell" products that I loved but
also to share my thoughts on style, design, and living a life that celebrates quality. The latter we presented to you in CR Style, and I have been so gratified by your positive response. Creating and sharing that creativity with others has been the guiding force in my life. I will, of course, leave the archives of CR Style on my website for everyone's enjoyment.
Times and needs change. With this in mind I have decided that Presentations and Carolyne need to take a sabbatical. New projects -- such as a small collection of children's clothes for Best and Company (launching in March, 2009), a new monthly column in Veranda magazine, and the start of my next book - will leave me little time to work on the website.
I do hope to stay in touch! I shall continue to sell my books and, occasionally, a pretty paper or ribbon. I shall let you know when the children's collection makes its debut and when I find an interesting piece of information that I feel you might enjoy. We will continue to check emails from the website, so please feel free to contact us.
So many of you have been loyal customers from the earliest days of the website. As a thank you, everything in Presentations (except books) will be offered to you at the wholesale prices. We only have limited stock of most of our products and this is the last chance to get them before we close... so happy shopping! And thank you so very much for your interest and support.
With all best wishes,
