When we started this company 3 or so years ago or at least starting talking about it, we were discussing it in my room with me in my bed. I had been told by the Dr's that I would not live long. This company was a dream and I told Sadie at the time that if we did start this company that we would be lucky if it lasted more than a year or so because of my health and the declining scrapbook industry. Sadie was living in Phoenix and sending me the pictures and the svgs, when I could get out of bed I would cut one or two and we would share it with our friends and take them to some of the crops we attended.
Fast forward 3 years and I feel better than ever for the most part. With all these changes and demands I sometimes have set backs. I am still under doctors care and do not always feel well.
I truly believe that having meet so many wonderful people and expanding beyond my wildest dream my health has improved but unfortunately it hasn't changed my diagnosis. We are not only doing well but we are now working 14 hours a day, have 3 full time employees and many family members helping us keep up with the orders.
With all this being said I wanted to thank all of you for your patience with our orders lagging, we are trying to catch up so it doesn't take so long. I also want to apologize to those of you who have had to remind me you have an order pending or one that hasn't been sent because I lost it. The headaches that I have with my condition sometimes creates havoc with my organizational skills. I love each and every one of you and I am so very grateful for you.
Last week I was so burnt out and I couldn't see straight, I had worked more than 100 hours with virtually no sleep and sorta snapped. I had to take some time to rejuvenate and I am finally feeling ready to get back to work. As crop season is quickly approaching I ask each of you if you place an order and need it by a certain date to please let us know. We have over 3000 kits in stock as we have been working hard but as we are also putting out new kits as quickly as possible so we will never be caught up. We don't want to retire kits either so we will continue to work as hard and as fast as we can.
We look forward to seeing many of you in the coming months and once again thank you for your support and patience.
We are getting busy and cant wait to see you all in the coming months once again Thank you for your support and patience.
