New Shipping Options

Due to the high cost of shipping these days, I have decided to give you all a choice between using USPS or UPS.  There will now be the following choices when you checkout.  PLEASE NOTE THAT NO USPS PACKAGE IS INSURED WHEN IT LEAVES MY OFFICE!  The best way to ship is still UPS but I understand the higher price may be an issue for some.  See below for the new choices (shipping fees will vary):

Thanks so much!  Still playing catch up & will post production schedule later tonight :)

Delay... sorry :(

As some of you know, my daughter has a heart condition (much of the reason I am in business for myself) & she has had a couple of problems in the past week.  Please allow for a little delay until we can get caught up & back on track...

Thanks for your patience!  I've also had cell phone troubles so if you've tried to reach me & couldn't, that's why!

have a great weekend!  I hope to be more on-target next week...

Tablet Gift Sets & Dinner Napkins..

Even though I've carried these items since 2003, I have yet to add them to the website! I've decided to add them after receiving several phone orders for them.... I carry a multitude of other options as well... See "Other Paper Goodies" to see all the choices! I will be adding the best sellers to this category for your shopping pleasure. These are shipped separately & shipping charges are built in to the already discounted price. enjoy :) laurie

fast & furious :)

wanted to give a quick update to let you know i am working fast & furious to get your orders shipped out. don't forget to see the "what i am up to this week" column on the right bar of the blog. this will give you a quick view of what my workload is for the week. now, this does not include emails that i have to attend to or phone calls that come in so don't worry..i am keeping plenty busy w/everything coming at me!

i want to reiterate how helpful & important this order status column is when it comes to the busy season quickly approaching! i swore to myself that i'd have all my christmas shopping done by july since i didn't get to actually shop for anyone on my list until mid-december last year (yuck!!) & guess what... i haven't even thought of what i am going to get for anyone yet! may really screwed me up being over-scheduled & wiped out!!

seeing the sliver-liner... will be busy, busy this summer but getting through the weeds... thankfully!! now, my garden on the other hand.... GEESH!! help!!!
