Just an Update

Just wanted to check in! This week has been very busy and productive for me - design-wise and school-wise. ;) I've been so thankful that I've been able to get back into a pretty solid routine - motivation, discipline, and sleep have been pretty lacking during the past few weeks. So I am so grateful that the Lord has restored my determination to complete my tasks quickly and thoroughly.

In design terms I've been working on some exciting projects!! =D Allie and I are working on her blog - with some special extras; and Christine and I are working on fine-tuning her design! Both designs are new and special in their own way - and you'll be able to see the finished designs in about a week! For now here's a sneak peek of one of the designs -

In other news I've been going through all the submitted forms from October to last week. When I began this business in October of 2010 I had absolutely no idea that it would be even mildly popular - I was hoping for just one or two design requests!! Well, I was completely and totally surprised to receive my first two requests the night I launched the blog and as I continued to receive an average of five requests a week. Since then I've changed a lot on this blog - I've added and modified packages, started charging fees, and reorganized the whole blog. Because of all that organizing I ended up getting a bit disorganized (I know, I know - sounds very contadictory!! =D) with all the orders.

So I want to let you all know that I am going through all the forms, finding those that ask only for accessories, or "A la Carte" items, and I will be designing those in the next week or two. I've also been able to get a better schedule for myself to follow.
And because of that, you wonderful people who are waiting so patiently for your designs will receive them sooner than I had originally planned.
 I can tell you, though, that if there is an advantage to your long wait it is that your design will be much better than it would have been had I done it a few months ago!! =D So thank you all for your incredible patience with me as I have figured out this business and put you all through the wringer with my frequent changes and adjustments!! You all are the best.

If I signed up for one when the designs were still free, will mine still be free?
