PLEASE READ: Nov 25, 2014 -
As of today (Tues Nov 25), I am completely booked until Christmas week. I will no longer be accepting orders for Christmas. Thank you so much for your support! If any orders get cancelled, or I miraculously work faster than planned, I will let you all know so that I can accept more orders.
Happy Thanksgiving week!!
I just filled in all of my sewing days on my calendar app, and I am completely booked until November 29. This includes current orders (Shannon, Kacky, Theresa) as well as recent inquiries (Seanda, Marcy - I added your possible orders to my sewing days so that I wouldn't overbook myself... I DO have time to make your orders if you are still interested).
At this time, unless you are mentioned above under current orders or recent inquiries, I cannot guarantee that new orders for Jesse Tree ornaments or St Nicholas gifts will arrive on time. I will do my absolute best to complete current orders as quickly as possible, and will update if I have any free days this month for new orders.
If anyone is still interested in Jesse Tree ornaments, I can still make and ship ornaments for weeks 2-4 on time, but the first week of Advent will not arrive before Advent begins.
I may be able to send out one more order for St Nicholas, if anyone is interested... otherwise, I still have 2 weeks free in December for sewing, so I'll be able to either make a couple of Nativity Scenes or several orders for Christmas.
Please do not wait until the last minute to order for Christmas... I generally need at least a 2 week's notice for orders when I'm NOT booked.
Thank you all for your understanding and support. God bless,
Hi everyone!! October went by way too quickly, so I have just a few quick things to say
1) I had planned on getting the Jesse Tree ornaments finished and photographed by the second week of October, but unfortunately they aren't quite done yet. I'm working hard to finish this set so that I can photograph it for you. Unfortunately, I don't think I'll have time to make any more sets unless they're ordered this weekend. I'll take pictures of the ornaments that are finished today so that you can get an idea of how the whole set will look. You CAN order them one week at a time, however, and that'll give me a chance to make a few more sets. I'll just refund the shipping for 3 weeks, since it's my fault I've been taking so long on making these ornaments.
2) Advent dolls - I currently have on the website a page for doll sets, and the first two on there are dolls for Advent. St Lucy, St Nicholas, Our Lady of Guadalupe, St. Juan Diego... If anyone in interested in these dolls, please order them by November 12 the latest.
3) Nativity Scenes - The 10-piece set is almost as time-consuming as the Jesse Tree ornaments, so if anyone is interested in that set it, too, should be ordered this weekend to ensure delivery before Christmas. The 3-piece set only takes about 2 days to make, so you can order that up until December 6 and I'll be sure to get that out to you in time for Christmas.
4) At this time, I am not going to be accepting custom saint orders for Christmas, unless it is a well-known Saint that I haven't listed on my site yet (i.e. most people know who St. Patrick is but I don't think St. Hubert of Liege is quite as common).
Thank you all so much for your continued support. God bless!!
