Pam's been put to rest for a bit...

Howdy all, Hubster here.

Well, Pam's been going like crazy setting up the inventory, tagging and updating books. She's been going non-stop doing all of this since early this morning, and it's nearly morning again. If she doesn't get a bit of rest, she'll be as crazy as me, and that's not a pretty sight.

So, I've sent her off to bed. After she's had a bit of rest, she'll be working on the picture taking of the new stock, and will begin the laborious procedure of uploading pictures either late tomorrow night or early on the next day. Why is this taking so long??? Because there's over 200 new items..... they may not all go up at once, but I've seen all sorts of yarny happiness that I'm certain will make for some very happy yarny days ahead.

Take care,

One Final Delay

I'm sorry. I need to push the update forward one more day to tomorrow, Thursday, February 28. I'm exhausted from having put together all the orders. I know that if I continue to push myself, I'll get sick. I can't afford that. So I figured it would be better to do the update tomorrow night, since I have to log everything, take pictures, tag each item, etc. If I tried to do that tonight, I'd be doing it all night. I was so tired last night that I fell asleep at 1:00 a.m. on the pot, fell off it two hours later, whacked my face on the toilet paper holder across from where the toilet is, and hit the floor on my knees while my face slid down the wall. Then I woke up Hubster and fell asleep again. Funny thing is, I don't remember sitting at the computer, because I woke up this morning at 11:00 a.m. with my face plastered on the keyboard. If I didn't have wrinkles before, I'll have them now from smooshing my face so many times.

The good news is that all 20 orders are on their way to you now! I didn't quite finish them last night, so I took care of them today. Wow. That was a lot of work for someone who hasn't worked in years. Who knew that doing this would take real work? You could have knocked me over with a feather - literally.

In any event, I'm going to rest up the remainder of tonight and take care of all the email that's been stacking up. I'll be doing all the work for the update tomorrow; it will be up tomorrow night. I hope you enjoy seeing what's new in the shop!

Thanks, as always, for your patience. This should be the last time I have to postpone something. From now on, I shouldn't be getting so many orders. As they come in, I'll fill them and mail them out. I think that's the last glitch in all this. We should be running smoothly from this point forward.

Update Date Changed

It looks like the update will take place tomorrow night (Wednesday) rather than tonight. I'm exhausted - in fact, I just fell asleep while writing notes for the purchases. I've yet to wrap things for the orders to be shipped, and I'll be working on that all night. I'm so sorry for the delay. The problem is that the great majority of the orders were paid for last night and the night before, and I was also waiting for the remainder of the contest winners to send me an email. I had hoped to get everything out today, but it's a lot of orders to fill. I'm doing it by myself - Hubster is busy working on the site. They'll definitely be done tonight, though, and in the mail tomorrow. Other than overseas orders, you should all have them by the weekend since they're all going out Priority Mail. Future orders will be filled as soon as they're paid. Now that all the bugs have finally been worked out (and it's true - I got an order last night without having to issue a manual invoice), things will go much smoother.

As for the update, there will be no new items added to existing vendors. New vendors will be added. I also have new vendors going on the "Coming Soon" list. Those vendors have just committed to selling through the shop, but they haven't had a chance to get their shipments to me. That's fine, though - it just means we'll have another update next week!

I'm working as fast as I can. Please know that I'm not knitting, watching TV, or doing anything tonight other than working on getting your orders out to you.

Thank you again for your patience while we get ourselves settled in and the details worked out. It's been a lot more work than I thought, but that's okay. I just feel bad that you haven't received your orders already; however, there wasn't much I could do until things were paid for and the bugs worked out. We're good to go now.

Shipments and Releases

I wanted to let you all know that I'm working as fast as I can on getting all your purchases ready to ship. I hope to have everything done by late tonight; I'll then go over to the post office and drop them off.

I've also released some items back into the shop for sale. These are from shopping carts that were not claimed or paid for. I released four carts, so there are some more needle gauges and yarn. I'm also working on getting the update done. If I don't get it finished tonight, it will be up by tomorrow night. Please check back both on the site and here to see the status - I'll keep you all up to date.

Thank you!

Yarny Goodness will have its' first update tomorrow night, Tuesday, February 26th. I will be adding some new vendors for your shopping pleasure.

I'm also in the process of packing boxes for shipment. Please give me a few days to get this done; I'm new at this and am trying to get everything done in a timely fashion while still making everything pretty.

That is all.
