Some Very Sad News ...........................

There are some new European VAT Laws coming into effect on 1 January 2015 so Donna has had to make the VERY difficult decision to close down Bearly Mine Designs on Wednesday 31 December 2014.

Donna has looked into keeping the Store open but just like some other small businesses around it just isn't viable.

I have been on the Design Team for quite a few years now and have worked alongside some wonderful Design Team Members.  I've been the Design Team Leader for a while sorting out things in order for Donna to design her wonderful papers.  I shall miss working with Donna and the Design Team and thank them for making all their wonderful creations to promote Donna's papers.

Our very last challenge will go "live" on 1 December 2014.

Please make sure you pop along and enter the challenge as a good-bye to Bearly Mine Designs.
As from Saturday 29 November 2014 to Wednesday 31 December 2014 there will be a 50% off sale over at the Bearly Mine Designs Store.

Pop on over to the shop to grab some bargains.

Bearly Mine Designs Team Leader


  1. So sorry to hear this sad news. You will be missed! But I want to wish you and your team all the best in the future!

  2. That's sad, is there any way round these rules and just trade to uk customers only. Surely must be some way to still trade.
    It will mean many craft sites will close down.
    Traders got to fight this x

  3. This is so very sad,I too have worked along side Donna for many years and I know what a very talented lady she is and of course the very talented ladies on the Dt you will all missed in the crafting and blogging world, I would love for things to be sorted out for all the small business involved ..wishing you all best wishes for the future and a big thank you to Donna for putting up with me for so long xx

  4. How sad, I am sure they don't want the little business to thrive. Doona is such a lovely lady.

  5. So sorry to hear this Donna, thank you for all your hard work and brilliant papers. Good luck for the future.

    Love & hugs
