Cyber Monday Sale, Holiday Timelines, & A Quick Update

Hey there strangers! I know it’s been about a million years since I’ve truly blogged, but it’s been with good reason.  Sometimes life throws us curveballs and we have to do our best when placed in a situation that’s not exactly ideal. The long and short of it is I’ve moved twice in the last year and one of those times was halfway across the country. Despite all the changes and stressful moments (because there were many!), I’ve done all I can do to keep my little one woman show going without completely letting my emotions take over (sitting in bed watching Netflix for a week straight while weeping into several empty containers of Ben & Jerry’s is my ultimate coping mechanisim).  I have so much to say about work, life, successes, and failures this past year and I’ll definitely do so in the new year.  I also have a handful of weddings and custom projects to share but for now, I’ll leave you with some info about my my holiday timelines for jewelry orders and my upcoming Cyber Monday sale.
