No More Custom Orders

July 31st is the cut off date for custom orders and made to order books from my shop. After that point I will be turning away all requests for custom books until further notice and discontinuing all made to order listings.

Unfortunately, I'm moving and am downsizing my shop while I look for a job. In addition, most of my supplies will have to be ordered online, and that will increase significantly the time it takes to make custom orders. I wouldn't feel comfortable with the wait time expected of my customers, so I'm just going to pick up again when I know I can do several orders every week. Until then, I hope people fall in love with the journals in my shop just as they are!

Poor Little Abandoned Blog...

...nobody reads you. I feel very sorry for having neglected you for so long but I've been very very busy.

I'm working now on catching up on custom orders as well as make a few little fun books to keep me from throwing a tantrum and putting my shop on vacation. Also, summer sucks. It really really does. Everyone's concerned with the drought and don't care at all that they are supposed to be BUYING MY BOOKS!!!!

I can see why "Christmas in July" exists (albeit very very stupidly). I refuse to participate in it, and I will never be desperate enough to, but I can see why people do it. Summer is the worst time of year to sell things, and I like to believe it's because everyone's outside experimentally grilling Funyuns, spraying their children with hoses, and chucking Frisbees at their neighbors' dogs so they run into the underground electric fence--but that's simply not true. If one goes by the happenings of my apartment complex, everyone's outside grilling meat into char, playing volleyball, and accruing millions of possibly cancerous cells in hopes of winning the "darkest tan" award on the first day back to school.

Perhaps people will realize their erroneous ways soon and buy out my entire store, but then again, probably not. Someone did, however, buy this little beauty (above) about half an hour after I posted it. She has very good taste, and it's probably because she hasn't been eating charred Funyuns.
