Holiday Shipping Information

 I'm once again kicking myself for not starting to prepare for Christmas much earlier. 
I did good trying to get the inventory up in my jewelry shop, which was one of the lessons I learned last year.  I have all my shipping supplies on hand.  Other than being behind from Thanksgiving week, (ok, it was more like 2 weeks) I feel good about handling my work load.

But I am dying to make more ornaments, and just can't find the time.  I'm just going to have to squeeze it in there somewhere.

A few pics I've snapped so far this Holiday season.  iPhone shots....

Rumor has it I'm getting a new camera for Christmas.  Yay!!!  I'm just going to have to become one of those people who just always have their camera with them.  Carry it around like a purse and all.  Maybe I can even make myself a cool case that doubles as a purse for it!  I'm nervous about getting to know it.  I hope we get along right away! 

Well, now down to business.  Shipping deadlines.  I ship everything USPS.  First class with delivery confirmation.  I find it usually to be nearly as quick as priority and more affordable.  According to the USPS website, packages in the US need to be sent by 12/20 First class in order to be delivered by Christmas.  It seems awful close to me.  Don't wait until the last minute to get those gifts ordered!  (I need to do this myself!)  Ready to ship items in my shop are ready to go.  I'll even send them straight to your recipient with a message from you.  Anything Made to order is taking me 5-7 business days to get it out the door.  That means you must order made to order items by Wednesday December 11th!  Golly that's close....

International to Canada and Australia/New Zealand has a deadline date of December 10th.  In my experience, USPS is very slow to Australia.  I think this one will be cutting it too close. 

I've not been blogging much lately, but I do have a sale in my jewelry shop right now.  Pretty much everything is marked down.  If it's not on sale, the price has been lowered to as low as I can go.  These are all mainly my made to order items.

I'm still trying to work out a Holiday giveaway.  I hope you didn't think I'd forgotten!  I'm just working on an idea I have for a MONTHLY giveaway.  :)  Will be back soon with something to give.  It is after all the giving season.  :)
