a confession....


... we got some of our first christmas cards today and i have a confession - i sometimes am a retaliatory christmas card sender - that means if i get one from someone who i didn't send it to, i will retaliate with a card. bad huh?

anyhow, this pic is a scan of the chipboard set i am giving away for those who are in the drawing for the RAK - this baby was hand carried all the way from asia - over 8000 miles so please excuse the bumps and bruises it might have gotten on the journey.

as i mentioned before we are shipping these out starting this week. and boy was it a journey to get them here. planning for orders is NEVER easy - for example, the estimated time for one of our shipments was 21 days to sail from asia. well it is over 40 days now and we are just getting it this week. sometimes it is hard to explain that to someone who is anxiously awaiting their items. we feel your pain.

same here with these chipboard. b/c of the timing of some other items, a lot of these are *just* starting their journey from asia. but b/c we are working hard to meet committements, we had a bunch of these air freighted here. that's right, we had them air freighted. now if you haven't priced air freighting these, let's just say we could fly a person first class to asia a couple of times for the cost of having them air freighted here. so it is all about give and take. but they are here! and happily we are shipping orders now...

Oh I so know what you mean about Christmas cards. I always forget someone until their card turns up on my doorstep.
Oh totally loving that chipboard!
