Post Office Blues

Phew! I just spent forever at the post office, but it feels great to have all the April orders finally shipped. Sometimes I feel bad when I go in there and there's like 3 people in line...and by the time I leave there's like 20 people in line giving me the evil eye. LOL!!

I should have all the May orders done within the next week...and then I'll be totally and completely caught up. =) I'll be working on lots of new limited edition summer items. I don't plan on taking pre-orders though, I'm just going to see how much stock I can make for summer.

But for now...I get to relax! Thank goodness. Even if it is only for a day. =P Lots and lots of other stuff going on in my head at the moment, but I haven't been sleeping and my brain is sort of FRIED. So! I'm going to take a nap and attempt to write something more coherent later.

Few Extra Spring Cupcakes!

I've had just about every person who ordered a spring cupcake or item within the past two months ask me if they can grab another spring cupcake. =P I think they're addictive? Maybe? Haha.

Anyways...I ending up making a tiny few extra for this very purpose. If I had time to hunt down the first people who emailed me about a certain cupcake I would let them have first dibs, but that would take forever to go through all my emails and comments entered at checkout.

So I have available: ALL SOLD!

2 Kiwi-Strawberry
1 Mojito
1 Banana
1 Orange
2 Lemon
1 Lime

I wish I could make 100 or so more but that's not possible without me turning into a lump of clay myself. =P Keep an eye out for limited edition summer items!

Temporarily Closed To Play Catch Up =)

I've had an overwhelming amount of emails from people asking why they can't order cupcake jewelry and when they will be able to, and begging me to put things back in stock. While I truly appreciate these emails, I can't respond to all of them so please don't be offended if you don't receive a reply.

At the moment I need to hold firm to my decision to close the shop until I can get caught up on orders. I plan to be caught up this weekend and should have nearly everything ready to ship on Monday. However whether or not I will keep the shop closed a little bit longer so that I can work on getting some things in stock, I still haven't decided.

Tiny Cravings will soon be undergoing some major changes, and if I continue to take orders and play the "catch up" game, then that will seriously stunt our growth in the new direction...and I've already been doing that for months. So I really need this time to concentrate on the future. My apologies to all those who have been ordering from TC for awhile and have been counting on us always being there when you need a special gift for yourself or a friend. I promise it's only temporary, and things will be back online as soon as possible.

In the meantime, I'll also be making some limited edition cupcakes and loading the extra spring cupcakes either to my website or my etsy, so the best way to stay informed of this is to sign up for my newsletter. =)

Spring Cupcake Pre-Orders Have Shipped

Hi Cupcakes,

Yes that's right...finally all your Spring Cupcake Pre-Orders have shipped!

I snapped a few quick shots of them before packaging them up and shipping them off. =)

Now I need to get busy on the mound of other orders from April and May...but hopefully I'll have them all done by the end of this week and should have them ready to ship on Monday. (fingers crossed) I really got sick at the worst possible time, but no worries. And I'll be refunding shipping to everyone who has had to wait over a month for their order to arrive.

In other news, my birthday is coming up on June 10th. I really really really want one of these!

If you don't know what it's an exact replica of the Alethiometer (truth meter) from the book/movie His Dark Materials: The Golden Compass. I just adore it, but I'm deciding whether I want to spend $200 on it. I love collecting divination objects, and this would be great to add to the collection. Maybe I'll get lucky and get it for my birthday. =)

May Update!

Hihi Cupcakes! =)

I'm currently not accepting any orders, due to some really exciting new things happening soon and also to get caught up with all your orders, and there are a bunch. I'll keep you all updated on the progress as these new things as much as I can here on my blog and in my newsletter, so make certain you're signed up! But I also don't want to give too much away until everything is ready...and there will be alot of work involved and I'll be working as hard as I can.

Spring Cupcake Pre-Orders should be ready to go out by Monday May 19th. Yey! Phew. I'll be happy when those are all in the mail. I need to make sure I don't forget to take some pics of them before I ship them out though, they're so adorable all together in a bunch hehe. All other orders have been pushed back an additional week due to me falling ill at the beginning of the month. My sincere apologies, and I really appreciate everyone's patience so much!

I've had a bunch of requests from people who missed the spring pre-orders, so I'll be making a few extra (when all other orders are done). Only a tiny few. But if you're kicking yourself for not getting a certain cupcake when it was available, you might get another chance. I'll let you all know when and where those will be available. Most likely I'll put them on my etsy so you know exactly what is left.

I'll try to update my blog more often, as my website probably won't be updated again for a bit. =P
