...or lack thereof.
I originally planned to make a big announcement saying, "I'm back in business, full swing, and I'm taking personalized orders!" with a huge smile and my arms wide open. Unfortunately, my plan will have to be put on hold.
My husband and I talked things over and because of his intensive work schedule at the moment, I'm unable to have enough hours to dedicate to custom orders. To be honest, I'm beyond bummed and even cried a bit... Okay, maybe a little more than a bit, but you get the point. We thought by the start of the new year, he would be back to his normal schedule so I was looking forward to coming back after such a long break. I miss being busy with orders, talking back and forth with customers, and all the creativity that surrounds me while I work. Extending this period was a difficult decision and I realize it's not best for My Dear Darling, but it's what's best for our family.
I apologize for the inconvenience to those who have contacted me in the last few months in hopes of getting a custom plush in January. I will be finishing the in-production orders that I've accepted so far but afterward, we shall wait.
In the midst of all this poopy news, I want to announce that I will be working on ready-made products and other deadline-free projects, personal and My Dear Darling related. Of course, these will be done in between Bruce's nap times so they'll get done little by little. ;) So here we go, one baby step at a time!
