I haven’t posted here in while but
By any chance does anyone know anything about bowel cancer? Or living with cancer? I’ve been reading up on every possible piece of info but I’d really like to know from another persons perspective how to deal with a family member who has cancer.
I’m not sure how to deal with this. I can feel myself slowly closing up and not wanting to talk to anyone.
I’m not sure who to talk to about this or even HOW to ask about it, but lots of people have been super helpful on here before so I thought I would ask.
Thank you <3
Just a few updates about cases etc:
♡ I haven’t closed my shop, I just moved from Etsy to Storenvy purely because of fees. I’ve had a lot of people asking why, and it’s because Storenvy is free! Yay! :)
♡ There are currently some delays with orders. Orders placed before the beginning of September have been shipped out, and some from September have gone out too. The reason why there is a delay is because I am having a few personal issues. My anxiety has been crazy for the last 6 months and I am finding it pretty hard to deal with. I have also just started university and have been extremely busy with that. Now I only really have the weekend free to make orders, which is why things have slowed down a bit and why I am not posting on things like Tumblr and Instagram as often as I was last month.
♡ I am expecting my student loan to come through soon. This was due weeks ago, and as a result of this me and my business have suffered quite a lot, I won’t lie! I budgeted myself expecting I was going to be paid my loan on a certain date, to find out I wasn’t. I made an effort to slow down my orders before I started uni so I didn’t have tons to do and could concentrate on my modules (again, expecting my loan), and I’ve been left with £10 a week to live on until it comes through. Obviously this has caused a lot of stress BUT I have been sorting it out this week, and I’m pretty sure everything has gone through now and I should be seeing my loan in the next week!
♡ I just want to say sorry to anyone who is still waiting. I am working on my remaining orders as quickly as I can, and they should be shipped out in the next week or so. I know I have a ton of people still expecting packages from me but some are starting to arrive now, so if you are still waiting, it shouldn’t be for much longer. If you have any questions about the status of your order, or if you are still waiting, just shoot me an email to email@example.com. Shipping times are being crappy at the moment so if you are waiting, please make sure to get in touch!
♡ Remember I’m ALWAYS here to help. While I am having a bit of a crummy time at the moment, if you need me, want to say hello, have any questions, or if you have a problem, just get in touch.
♡ One last thing, I just want to say thank you to everyone who orders from me and supports me. Your support means everything to me and you have pretty much helped me live for the past two years. I know my service has been very slow at times, but I would really like to thank everyone for being so patient with me. I am lucky to have been able to make lots of lovely friends through running my shop too. You guys make it all worth it for me.
So! A quick round up:
I’m writing this also because I just read a post about a lady ordering some hair clips that haven’t arrived yet - so I wanted to clear anything up with her and also anyone else who is still waiting:
If you ordered a custom case from me - It usually takes about two weeks for me to make. Sometimes it will be faster, or sometimes it might take a bit longer (say if you have asked for a special piece).
Shipping within the UK takes 1-2 day, and shipping everywhere else can be within 1-6 weeks. That depends on where abouts you are located.
Everything should be back on track by next week. I just really wanted to keep you guys updated as much as possible so nobody got worried about their orders etc.
Thank you so much. Remember my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. That will be the quickest way to contact me. I will get back to anyone who emails me within good time if I am not at university. I honestly cannot describe how much I appreciate your patience and understanding. It’s hard to run a business alone sometimes, so thanks for helping me out.
