I promised myself that I was finished making pumpkins,
but while sorting through some things, I came across these darling metal leaves,
and beautiful candlewick fabric.
Then there were these pretty fabrics that screamed PUMPKIN!
(at least to me they did)
And these vintage blooms that I coffee dyed a few weeks ago.
They have all been listed in my aJOY2bheld shop.
A little side note about my Etsy shops:
I have always promised my customers 100% satisfaction,
and as such have never felt that I needed to take a prepayment or deposit on special orders
(with the occasional exception of a very large order or one requiring me to purchase special materials).
Of late, there is a growing trend for potential customers to request a special item,
communicate their specific wants,
agree on terms,
and disappear once the item is complete and listed.
This has happened to me 3 times over the past month.
Going forward, I find it necessary to ask for full payment in advance for any special orders.
I am heartily sorry that the actions of a few has forced me to make this policy change.
I appreciate your understanding.
One last little reminder:
(sorry, I know I am all over the place today)
"Masked Beauty" ATCs must be postmarked by next Friday,
that is one week from today.
I hope that our international swappers have already or are preparing to mail their ATCs.
I will now wish you a lovely weekend
to enJOY Your Blessings,
