Nov. 30th is Last Order Day for Custom Handprint-Footprint & Photo Jewelry for Christmas Delivery

Just a reminder that November 30th will be the last day to place an order for Christmas delivery of Custom Engraved Handprint & Footprint Jewelry and Photo Jewelry.

December 5th is the last day to order for Christmas delivery of personalized, engraved, and hand stamped jewelry.

Please note that we can only guarantee Christmas delivery within the United States. We can't predict delivery dates on International shipping, and this time of year may take extra shipping time to reach it's destination.

I have several new styles of child angel pewter ornaments coming in this week. I'll post as soon as they are ready. I'll also be posting some product suggestions for quick shipping Christmas gifts and stocking stuffers.

My website was off line most of Friday due to a server issue. I apologize to everyone that was trying to log on, but only got an error message. It seems that the problem is resolved (I hope) and you should be able to order online for the November 30th cutoff.

Warm Wishes!

We're Back!

I just wanted to let you all know that we're back from our vacation. We had a great time- a 5 day cruise to Grand Cayman and Cozumel, Mexico. Here are a few pictures I'd like to share with you:

We visited the ancient Mayan ruins at Tulum, Mexico. This was the temple for the Fertility Goddess. All women were expected to make the long trek at least once in their life to pay homage and pray for pregnancy and babies. The facade of the temple eroded a long time ago, and it's hard to make out the symbols used, but the story has remained intact.

This picture is from the outside of the fertility temple. It represents a sad reality of childbearing- stillbirth and neonatal death. I thought it was interesting that the Mayans publically acknowledged that death was a very real part of life, and that not all births turn out happily.

This was taken in front of our cruise ship, and about 20 minutes before I became violently ill while traveling to Tulum, lol.

Here is Rich at the cliff of the Mayan ruins. A gorgeous clear blue water beach is below, along with several large native iguanas. A real sight to behold!

Thank you to everyone who placed orders while we were out- I have plenty of work to keep me busy this week :-) We've already processed the shipping labels for what's going out this week, and many more supplies are on order.

I accidentally broke my digital camera after we came home. I have a lot of new products to roll out, but hadn't taken the pictures yet. I'm not sure what to do...I'll post the pics as soon as I'm able to.

VACATION NOTICE: November 14th to 23rd

We will be out of the office from Friday, November 14th through Sunday, November 23rd. I will be back in the studio and catching up on orders on Monday, November 24th. Any engraved or personalized order placed after Tuesday, November 11th may not be shipped until we return. I will do my best to ship out all simple orders before we leave.

Rich and I will be going on a much needed and relaxing vacation alone. I hope to come back well rested and ready to tackle the craziness of the upcoming Holiday Season.

You can still place online orders during this time. They will be completed in the order that they are received in, when we return. Express orders can not be shipped until after November 24th.

If you have already placed an order for custom engraved handprint or footprint jewelry or photo charm by November 5th, it will be completed and shipped before we leave. Any custom photo or handprint-footprint jewelry placed after November 5th will be placed in queue for when we return.

Thanks for your patience. Speak to you again in a couple of weeks!
