New Custom Pieces

Hello, lovelies!

I have been working hard the past few weeks, first on pieces for the auction, and more recently getting caught up on custom orders. That means lots of new goodies that I haven’t shared with you yet!

While most of these are custom orders, I also threw in some of the items that I created just for the auction that happened two weeks ago and made it so that we were able to pay it forward with a contribution to the True Colors Fund.

Interested in a piece like any of these, or something completely unique? Please get in touch! We’ll see what I can do for you.

Much love and many blessings, as always!

More good news… Custom order update & auction wrap-up!

Hello, friends! I have more exciting news to share with you tonight. 🙂

First, I am completely caught up on making custom orders, aside from a few pieces needing supplies or requiring something from the customer. The few folks whose orders are affected have been notified, and I’ll have everything needed within a few days to complete those last few orders. I’ve been sharing lots of these new custom goodies on Facebook and will also post them here soon. My estimated turnaround time for custom orders moving forward is 2-6 weeks.

Moving on, it’s time for the post-auction wrap-up, now that all of the auction items have been purchased. There were 60 pieces in this auction; a few did not sell and were returned to the shop with clearance prices. The auction drummed up a total of $705, plus an additional $9 in optional donations to help offset PayPal fees and $10 in additional donations, which will go straight to helping us build our nest egg. After PayPal fees are taken into account, we ended up with a net total of $679.71. As promised, 10% of the funds raised have been donated to True Colors Fund; we rounded up and donated $68.

Custom Order & Grab Bag Update

Hello, my dears!

I am just bursting with excitement and I had to share that I am almost completely caught up on custom orders, for the first time in over a year.

I now have 10 outstanding custom orders which I have not completed making, and the oldest of these is from March. I expect to have all of these orders ready to ship within a week or so, and am planning a huge post office trip; all outstanding custom orders, auction items and other recent purchases should be shipped out the week of the 22nd, barring any sort of unforeseen emergency.

I cannot even begin to express how exciting this is! Everyone who placed any kind of custom order before March can expect pictures within the next few days, unless I have already contacted you about a minor supply-related delay.

Thanks so much to everyone who has been so patient with me while I’ve been working to catch up after all of the craziness surrounding our move and getting settled into our new home! Once I get the rest of these orders taken care of and get some new pieces made for the shop, I’ll be focusing on grab bags from our housewarming fundraiser.

As always, my deepest gratitude for all of your love and support! Wishing you all many bright blessings.

Shipping update!

Hello, lovelies!

I’d like to take a moment to share a shipping update. Poor AJ has been almost completely out of commission for about two weeks thanks to plantar fasciitis and the soles in his old shoes going soft. We’ve finally gotten him a new pair with hard soles, but his condition got so bad — especially the pain in his legs and feet, which prevented him from getting quality rest — that he’s recovering more slowly than he has in the past.

This means that I’ve been in charge of just about everything around here, since he was already dealing with a brace on his dominant hand, thanks to an old injury acting up. That’s why — for those of you who see my Facebook posts — I was busting my butt, making and posting lots of custom pieces, when I first got my new supplies in… But I haven’t been posting much for the last week or so, because I’ve been busting my butt running all the errands, doing all of the cooking and cleaning around here, dealing with my own health issues and taking care of my sweetie.

Now that AJ has his new shoes, he’s slowly on the mend. I will be working on custom orders and pieces for the shop over the course of the next week, and will be going to the post office next week. I will then be resuming weekly to biweekly shipping. I really appreciate your patience while I get caught up! Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns, and send any inquiries specific to your orders via Facebook PM or email to ensure that they reach me. It may take me some time to respond, but I will get back to you.

Please do not send energy directly to us without express permission, as we are empaths and even well-meaning energy is not always helpful to us. Praying on our behalf or lighting candles for us IS appreciated, should you feel moved to do something to help with healing.

On one last note, our housewarming fundraiser will be ending in one week, at 12:01 am Pacific time on April 1st. I cleaned the apartment last week and had it ready to shoot a video, but AJ couldn’t stand or walk, so he was unable to film. After lots of requests to see me/us, I’ve been planning to be in this video. Now that AJ’s begun to mend, we think we may be able to shoot tonight. So I’m tidying up now, and we’re keeping our fingers crossed. Please keep a lookout for that, and check out my recent posts for more info if you’d like to contribute to the campaign and receive some awesome rewards in thanks.

Thanks so much for your love, support and understanding! You all mean the world to us, ❤

Much love and many blessings,
Bri (& AJ)

Catching Up

I’ve been a bit frazzled and slow recently, thanks to the heat… Sometimes that means that I forget to post here or choose to post less frequently, since most of my engagement is on Facebook, but I’m trying to figure out the best way to stay on top of everything and also set up an email newsletter. In the meantime, sometimes I post stuff like this… Here’s a look at what I’ve been up to very recently. If you pop over to my shop, you can check out the items I’ve placed in my newly created clearance section, as well as some newer pieces not shown here. I’ve also posted some new charms and pendants on FB, which are available for custom orders.

I’d really love to hear what you think of any of the new pieces!
