I just wanted to take a quick moment to let everyone know that I've been scarce in the last week because I'm preparing as many items for shipping as I can before I leave for Celebration 5.
A number of you have been sending messages literally everyday checking the status of your order. I'm certainly not ignoring you. I've not had a chance to answer many messages in these last week because of the rush for Celebration. But please understand, this doesn't help matters and only beefs up the inbox. Please be patient my friends. You all know I'm not going anywhere, and I have a solid reputation with TDH. You have nothing to worry about. Things are just slower than normal right now because of everything going on. As it turns out, I had to do yet another big piece at the last minute for the TDH booth which created another delay on normal biz. You can blame Art for that one (just a little afternoon humor guys and gals). Please take comfort in knowing you're in good hands. If you're newer, just ask your neighbor. I'm rock solid.
Also, there have been 4 parcels damaged by USPS in the last 2 weeks. I'm not sure
exactly what the deal is. They've always been really good. Maybe a stray accident here or there. I may have to start requiring insurance on ALL items regardless of destination because I take care of my customers no matter what and it's getting a bit time consuming and expensive to fix what our Post Office breaks for us :-( But, those members know who thy are, and rest assured, the replacements are shipping before I leave for Florida next week. On that same note, there has also been one International just disappear from the planet it seems even though it was clearly in an acceptance status on-line. So I'm dealing with that as well. Combine that with a couple of errors in tracking information and well, it turned in to a mini mess at just the right time.
As far as normal items go, here is who is slated to ship before I leave for Florida so you can be watching for your items.
That leaves 3 members from the end of July and of course new and freshly ordered items for when I return. What that translates to is caught up and all is well in the universe and I can concentrate on the new goodies I announced last week ! I wanted to make sure I have a guilt free trip to Florida
So I figured I would post a public notice about the status of everything to rest any concerns. Your patience over the last month or so has been very welcome and I can't tell you all how much I appreciate it. All will finally be back to normal on the 16th when I return. Thanks for putting up with me during the CON RUSH !
On that same chord, I wanted to make sure everyone that has sent msgs about Celebration 5 know that they have been received, and I very much look forward to meeting and spending time with you as well !
The PM box is going to be raided tonight folks so stay tuned for a more personal touch coming your way !
Thanks so much everyone !
