Hey my lovely Membersheepys♥
It's been really quiet in our group lately. I'm really sorry about that, but I haven't got so much free time at the moment. v.v I will do my best to do more for the group in the future, but I have to say, that I simply lack the time for some of the group activities at the moment:

- For all new members: I'm really sorry, but I can't write the personal welcome messages at the moment. v.v Thank you so much for choosing my group. I'm really happy about it and welcome it if you would like to contribute some artwork. We love getting all the new artwork.  
I will do my best to use the time, which I will save by not writing the welcome messages, for things like contests or other interesting events in the future.  

I hope that's okay with everyone?
Please tell me your opinion by writing a comment. If you'd like to, that is.
