Wish I Had Some Elves...

So very, very busy making HandstampedOriginals for customers this week!  Wish I had some elves...  

The LAST day to place orders from HandstampedOriginals for delivery by Christmas will now be Saturday, December 13 at 11:59 p.m. (for delivery within continental US only). HandstampedOriginals will be on VACATION from December 14 through January 2. Had to move up the end date a bit due to the overwhelming number of orders this season! 

No worries if you have a pending order--it will still ship on or before the guaranteed ship date. Merry Christmas!

Let me sum up...

When last I blogged, I was about to turn 40...that was over a year ago.  So much has happened in that year+...

Let me sum up.

I turned 40--not so bad.
My boys started 1st and 4th grade.
My husband accepted a new position with a new company in a new state.
We prepped, listed and sold our home of almost thirteen years.
We bought our new house in Iowa before we sold our old house in Missouri, even though we said we'd never do that...
My boys finished 1st and 4th grade and on that same day we moved from our home of almost thirteen years and our town of almost 23 years to our new home, our new town, our new state.
We have been unpacking since June--may finish by year's end...
I turned 41--still not so bad.
My boys have started 2nd and 5th grade.
My husband continues to love his new job.

In the meantime, HandstampedOriginals has continued to grow and keeps me very busy.  In addition to my production schedule (and the aforementioned unpacking), I am working on launching my own website/online store.  Stay tuned.
