Krissy's open letter to Swirlydoos and the loyal members.
Dear Valued Swirlydoos Members, It is with a very heavy heart that I write this letter to you. Over the past 3 days a nasty, vicious *insert really bad expletive here* person hacked into our website and functionally destroyed it. This person got into the system and deleted every single photo, graphic, text, layout, everything. It is all gone. You've no idea how crazy it makes me to have to type that. I put a year and a half of my time, heart and soul into that website and they took it all down in a matter of days. BLAH!!!!!!! Anyway - I'm getting emotional. I apologize. We are going to have to completely re-build swirlydoos.com. We lost all of the forum posts, we lost all of the previous kit photos. But, we did NOT lose our desire to have a tremendously talented and kind online community of the best scrapbookers in the world. We did NOT lose our drive to continually support you in your art while putting out the most gorgeous kits and products we can get our hands on. They may have TRIED to put us out of commission, but they've only hardened our resolve (and made us hurry up and re-design grrrr). By the end of this evening when you go to www.swirlydoos.com you will be automatically redirected to our blog site www.swirlydoos.blogspot.com. This is where we will be putting all updates and Heaven forbid our Kit Reveal for Wednesday. Nothing has changed with the kit shipments, none of YOUR personal information has been compromised. The only changes you will notice right now are that obviously - the site is gone, the gallery is gone and the store is gone. We are working diligently at this very moment to get it all put back "somewhat" the way it was and it is my personal hope that we will have some semblance of our beloved site back up and running on reveal day. I am very sincerely sorry for any trouble this may have caused any of you - trust me if I could get my hands on these people..... If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to contact me. The most important thing right now is that you all know that NOTHING has changed with the kits and the shipping, and all communications will be via email or our blog for the next few days. Best scrappy wishes to you all, The Swirlydoos Team.
