Just a really quick update.
Order updates will be slow this week on my blog because I've been summoned for jury selection here in Toronto. It is something we must attend. I originally thought it would be for just one day, but found out today that it's for the entire week. If selected to be on the jury, it means that I'll be in the courthouse for more than a week, and depending on how long the trial goes, it could be even longer.
Because of this, it's going to be a bit hard for me to get as many orders out this week as I would like to. Today I was there from 8:30am - 4:30pm, and for the rest of the week, I've got to be there from 9:30am - 4:30pm. I've also got a final paper to write which is due this weekend, and wholesale orders that I MUST ship out this week.
That being said, I still have individual orders to catch up on. I know I say this time and time again, but I really do appreciate how patient you've all been, and I'm really sorry for any inconvenience the delay in receiving your orders have caused. Please do know that I'm doing as much as I can to get these out as soon as possible to all of you.
I really want to be able to get all of them out before christmas, but some of you may receive yours after that date, due to the large volume of orders that I have received.
Unlike last year, when I didn't have school, and didn't have as many orders to work on, this year, the response on my characters have been quite overwhelming. I'm really happy that you've all liked them enough to purchase them, and so I'm working as hard as I can to get these out to you, even if it means little sleep.
I do ship out multiple orders each week, so if you haven't received yours yet, please expect that it will go out soon. I've been trying to ship everything out in the order that I've received the orders in, accommodating different deadlines when I can. There's only so much I can do in a day, and now because of jury selection and the possibility of jury duty, I'm having to re-arrange my schedule this week in order to finish all the work that I need to get done.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do send me a message on etsy. If you send me an email, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org, as it's hard for me to check my hotmail address (since it doesn't always work). If you haven't heard from me first, and you're concerned about your order, please don't hesitate to contact me, but please also know that I do not read minds... there's a lot on my plate, and so if I am contacting you first, it would be to let you know that I've finally shipped out your order after the long wait.
Again, I greatly appreciate how patient everyone has been. My short update has turned into a bit of a lengthy one.
I'm going to have some dinner (since I missed breakfast, and they didn't give us enough time off for lunch for me to find something decent to eat.... I only had yogurt for lunch today).. and after dinner I'll continue on orders until about midnight.
Have a great night, and again, please contact me on etsy if you have any questions.
(p.s. more photos WILL be posted soon.. .they're all on my camera still....but I've been so busy with making stuff and studying, that I haven't had time to upload and edit pictures.
p.p.s to those of you who had contacted me recently, and I said your order would ship out last week, I'm still working on those, as I had to finish up wholesale orders and that took longer than expected. I'll try to get those out to you this week. sorry T___T)
