Welcome to the Tales of a Kitchen Witch Blog.
It makes me sad that I don’t have more time to sew.
Honesty is always best, right? So here goes… Deep breath. If you bought a doll from me in the last seven weeks or so, I just mailed them this past week. Because I forgot. Most of them were done a while ago, all boxed up and sitting on the desk in my study for weeks, but I forgot to mail them.
I am so embarrassed.
I try to make it very clear that it takes a while for me to get dolls into the mail. I even added a disclaimer to my doll page:
“Also, because they are handmade with love, please take into consideration the time it takes me to create a doll. It usually takes me about three weeks to complete a doll order and put her in the post, but sometimes it takes longer- (I do have four kids) so please take that into consideration when ordering a doll from me.”
My life is often overwhelming. I’ve got all these kids that I am alone with for weeks at a time. I’m homeschooling them, writing a book, painting, cooking, running a Thursday playgroup, and helping to start a children’s circle, all whilst trying to keep up with my house and this blog. So sometimes I drop the ball. I dropped it here and I am very sorry. I just really enjoy making dolls and I wanted to make a few this fall- I didn’t think about whether or not I would have the time to do it. And I wasn’t expecting to get EIGHT orders in all at once!
Anyway, I guess my point is that if you have been waiting nearly two months for your doll, I am sorry I screwed up. And if anyone else wants a doll from me in the future (those rare few that I still make), please be prepared to wait quite a while for it to be finished.
