I've been battling myself over what to do with the store for a long time now. I love making your sweet angel pieces, but in doing so I'm giving up my own life which isn't fair to my husband, kids or me. Since the birth of Nathan I've found time is an issue. There is more of everything to do, and I'm just too stressed trying to manage it all (kids, housework, orders, donations) ...so I stress out alot and everyone suffers for it. I have decided I won't do it anymore.
So as of April 30th I will no longer be taking custom orders on most items. I WILL be shutting down my clay baby line for sure. I will keep for now miscarriage blankets but ONLY blankets (no outfits, etc). I am going to move over to only doing perhaps one custom type item for a period of time and thats it. So I PROMISE I will do my Christmas trees and probably some ornaments in the fall, right now I will keep shelf stones open for orders as a spring item. I might try to find a unique summer and winter one, but that is all I can say right now. My buy it now store will remain and my goal will be to restock and add to that when I get to.
This closure does NOT affect any current orders. I WILL BE completing them. And I'm giving warning to those who might want to place a final order with me the time is NOW, your order WILL take probably 8 weeks or longer however to ship so please be aware of that. I don't honestly know if I will ever come back to being a fully custom store again. I will be sure to offer pieces I can add names too in the buy it now shop,but that is all I can say at the moment.
Do know this decision didn't come easy. It's been a struggle for awhile now on how to handle things, I think this is the best solution for me. I love your constant support of my work, I hope you will continue on this journey with me and see where time takes things.
