Because this will be impacting my shop, I wanted to make the announcement official. I got a new full-time job.
Previously, I've always had part-time jobs that allowed me a lot of free time to work on my shop. Unfortunately, the part-time jobs and the income from my shop were not enough to financially support myself. Thus, I searched and was able to find a good full-time job in order to be able to have a stable amount of money coming in each month. My new job is a standard 8:00am - 5:00pm, Monday through Friday type of job. I just started earlier this week and so far I'm really enjoying it there.
Now that I have most of my weekdays occupied, I don't have as much time as I did before where I could work on new shop projects. Turn around time has been changed. Previously, I got most orders out within 1 to 3 days. The new TAT is roughly 2 to 4 business days. I will still answer all of my Etsy conversations and emails as promptly as possible. The last major thing that will be changing are the time frames for new releases. New colors won't be premiering as often as they have been in the past. At this point in time I'm not sure if I plan to release new items in clusters like I have been, or release two or so colors a little more frequently.
I'm very sorry if this has caused any inconvenience and I hope that you will continue to support me as I try to adjust my scheduling around the new changes in my life.
