My sister Alicia had been looking on with interest from home and could see there had been a BIG problem, so she came over and between us we sat down and worked out just what had been ordered, and what I could (and couldn't) do. I contacted all the orders that had not come through properly and although I was bracing myself for some not so pleasant reactions, each and every one of them was SO understanding and gracious about the whole matter.... and I thank those ladies from the bottom of my heart for that! To make matters worse I received an email from PayPal suspending my account as receiving many payments in such a short time frame apparently means I'm suspected of fraud/terrorism... so I have been busy trying to prove my identity to them and regain access to my account.
And so begins a few very busy days where every spare second will be spent sewing, I will be making trips to the post office Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday getting orders sent out as they are made and endeavor to have every single order out by the weekend (excluding custom orders and one VERY lovely, understanding lady who is patiently waiting for supplies). Thank goodness my husband doesn't fly out again until Thursday!
If you're on my facebook page over the next few days you may just see a lone tumbleweed blow through as I do as little time on the computer as I can to ensure I get as much sewing time in as possible.
As a side note, my super awesome website lady has assured me the glitches experienced will be fixed before the May Collection.... but I don't even want to think that far ahead just yet :)
