December Updates

Just a few updates. All the orders up until yesterday have either been shipped or will be today and then we will be all caught up. Anything from today on will not be processed until after the New Year.

I have to apologize for not being able to get back to some convos and emails. I just haven't had the time as I've been processing orders, which is no excuse. I've been wanting to make sure I get all the orders out in time for Christmas gifts as many of the orders were intended for such. I have to go through Paypal and/or Direct Checkout and refund some shipping overages tonight as well, so be on the look out for your refund. 

The other thing is USPS has either, not been updating tracking on some packages, or showing as being delivered elsewhere (even when being delivered to the proper location) and... once again, recycling tracking #'s. But customers are letting me know they are arriving safely. I've had a few etailers contact me with the same issues which in some ways is a relief it's not just me, but still stressful for us all.

The Victorian Christmas collection, although I did not get to add it in time, I will still add it this weekend. I felt that processing all the orders and getting them out as quickly as I could to be far more important than adding more items to the shop and site. Also, on etsy what is there is all that is available at the moment. I will replenish inventory on my time off.

One last thing, I have been sending perfume petites of the Dark Woods collection with orders (such as Cimmerian, Abeo, Solitude, Intempesta, etc) in preparation for the re-release. I am saddened, and I cannot stress just how saddened I am, that I will not be adding these, not now, not ever. :-( It seems they have been lost forever. Since I have been working nonstop my husband hired some help for around the house to help me out during this busy time, which I greatly appreciate and love my husband for. But during this, my notes for the Dark Woods collection were somehow tossed to the trash and the trash has already been picked up. We went through everything and they are not anywhere to be found. I'm in complete shock right now.

I just didn't have the time to add them to my books unfortunately. I've been praying it was the only thing tossed and not any of my other notes as well. So what you receive will be it, an extremely rare, limited edition, collection that none of us will be able to have again. I still have the blends I made up here, but I don't think I will be adding them to the line. I'll just hold onto them. I've been racking my brain trying to remember what the blends were, while I know which notes I used, in what amounts I cannot remember. I have so many blends it's impossible for me to memorize any one of them. I don't store my notes, blends or formulas in my computer as a wise and successful business woman once old me many years ago to never do that for fear of being hacked into one's computer and stealing everything.

So here I am, with a heavy heart. I am off for now to finish the last. I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas.
