DoodleDragon Studios is closing...

It's with a very heavy heart and after a lot of consideration, I have decided it's time for DoodleDragon to close. I haven't even told my DT yet. With the rising costs of gas, trips to the store are getting more and more expensive. That makes getting supplies for new just art too expensive. I spend more time working on site stuff than I do playing my PS3, Zombies need attention too. Now before you send me that email turn around look at the calendar and realize I had a few of you going there for a minute. It's April Fool's day...I was just curious to see how many people actually read my posts. I am not going anywhere anytime soon, April Membership starts today and I am working on a HUGE Blogiversary surprise for later this month, that is if I haven't made anyone mad enough to leave for good. Start saving that rainy day money, this Blogiversary is going to be bigger and better than last year...

Ok really no sending nasty emails, it was a joke..

That was dirty! For a moment there I was very disappointed and you sounded quite sincere (especially the part about zoombies!). Anyway, glad you're still creating fantastic stamps!

Shannon - Desert Designs said...

Whew! Since I get Dustin goodness delivered to my inbox, I saw the title and thought hmmm...I bet this is an April Fool's sort of thing - but I read the ENTIRE post just to be sure. ;)

Tami B. said...

Ted said...

Hehe, I had just got done playing a prank, so I wasn't fooled.

But I admit my first question was: Do I still get a cool t-shirt?

Amanda said...

I don't believe ANYTHING ANYBODY says on April 1st! I've told my family never to get into a car accident or cut off a thumb because I will NOT believe them!

Good one though! I got someone else today too!!! Haha! Happy April Fools!

Rae Ann said...

Wow...I came to post my project for the challenge and almost died! I think my heart skipped a beat or two! Possibly even three! Nice one. =)

DoodleDee Designs said...

hoptownracer1 said...

Oh my gosh!!! Tricked me good!

doodlingdebbie said...

I'm jealous. I wish I would have thought of an April's Fool joke that good. :-)

Susan said...

I know what you mean...I need more time for the Wii and DSi myself! My April Fool joke on my kids (5 & 7) backfired yesterday when I said they didn't have to go to school because they were so tired. When I yelled 'April Fool!' my son 7 burst into tears (I am talking hysterical!)and ran into his room and went back to bed! Lesson learned (for me)!
