Second: this year my Etsy shop just took off! I have been working and trying for to get it to this point and unexpectedly it did!

Such a sad thing truly but necessary to ensure the highest quality and timely shipping for those who have ordered. I am currently working on the last two orders and hope to be able to open up for more soon. It is a serious blessing as nothing brings me more pleasure than to create a one of a kind item for someone.
