I have taken the shopping cart down for a summer break. I need to do some physical therapy and can’t do it when the cart is up. Summer is the best time to do this because it is my slower season, partly because people take vacations and partly because my most popular scents are best in cooler weather. I will also take this time to finish the formula for the new Amber Incense.
If you are an international customer visiting the USA during my break, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll take care of your order; I don’t want you to miss your chance for easy shipping and am happy to time shipping to a hotel while you are here. Also, if you need something for a gift or you are a signature scent customer and are running low, I’ll take your order during the break. And if you just bought some samples and are dying for a bottle of something, I’ll try to fit you in too. I will be back to take all other orders after the break, and you can follow updates on the blog in the meantime.
I can’t give an exact date for when I will put the cart up because it depends on how things go. I plan to be up and running for fall.
There’s nothing seriously wrong and no crisis so there’s no need to worry. I had injured the deltoid in my left arm last fall and it has healed about 85%; I’d like to try to get the rest of the range of motion back. I’m always operating on the edge as far as managing my back issues and it has been hurting quite a bit the last few days, so I want to catch it before it gets worse so that I don’t miss this chance to do some PT this summer. I had hoped to give some notice of my time off, but I would not be able to handle the potential large inflow of orders that a pre-announcement might produce. Instead, I’ll take care of people as needed via email in a slower fashion.
Thank you so much for your understanding. I’ll continue to blog and am also reachable via email (please do email me if you are an international customer and want to set up an order during your USA visit or during your friend’s USA visit).
