After more than 11 years, the time has come for us to close the doors to Dizpins and retire. We have been through so much together.. good times and bad times. We have laughed together and cried together.
Our goal at Dizpins throughout these 11 years has been to have a place where Friends can meet and have fun and to talk about pins. But Dizpins became more than that. It became a place where people could share their good times and heartaches, and they would find comfort in the Ohana. We have seen babies born and Friends and Family pass on. Together we helped the victims of devastating hurricanes. We wept together and lit candles together and helped each other cope with the devastations of 9/11. Dizpins became a place where lifelong Friendships developed and those shiny things became immaterial.
We went to pin events together and shared more fun times, like North meets South. We all F5’d together. The Online Events sent many to the Eye Doctor. We spent some time at the Dizpins Resort and Spa. We helped each other find those special pins for our collections. We helped Newbies get started. We did not attend the Dizpins UnPin Event. We sent stuffed animals for Lee's kids and Lanyards and Pins for Bert's Big Adventure. We were Family.
We could go on and on, however, the time has come for us at Dizpins to retire and move on. The Pin Trading World has changed and it is time for the new generation to take over. Please, cherish each memory you have and the Friends you have made. I remember the moral taught to us in It’s a Wonderful Life… We each touch so many people in so many ways and those people touch more people and more people after that. I thank each of you for touching my life in a special way.
I want to personally thank everyone, and I do mean everyone, that has helped with Dizpins throughout the years beginning in 1999. I do not want to leave out any names so I won’t list any, but please know that all of your hard work, your labors of love, is greatly appreciated, more than you will ever know.
We note that Wally has a Murder Mystery sign up on the Just for Fun Board, and we will leave that forum open for as long as the Murder Mystery is played.
And always remember.. Believing is Seeing in the Magic!
All of the content will remain on the Boards until December 15th, but no one will be able to post after October 31st. This should give you all time to gather up the info and posts that you have.
Thank you to all of you for making Dizpins one of the best Disney Pin Sites on the net throughout these past 11 years!!
