Why I Temporarily Shut Down the Shop

Why is there nothing to buy here? 

The short answer is delays in Mint Crit and overwhelming support for it has created a backlog of nearly a 1000 orders. 

I do my best to honor my words and commitments, and I am at a place where I have to honor both to the best of my ability. This means I will be shipping out every single order of Mint Crit as quickly as I can.

It also means that in mid December I will be out of the country again for a couple of weeks for some family holiday time.

I also have a number of orders that I have to make right, and some general shop orders that need to be sent out.

This is the bulk of the reason why the shop is shut down. 

I haven't been anywhere near perfect in the running of the shop after I opened it. I didn't know what I was getting myself into and I'm working towards putting some systems into place so that when I do re-open, there aren't the same delays in shipping as there have been. I likely won't do pre-orders again for a while and am aiming to move towards a release schedule that will see a new design released every 6-10 weeks. 

I've also re-opened the site so you can check on your orders (yet another reason why I want to switch to a different platform.).

The other reason is that I'm not super happy with this platform and am working on moving to a different one before the store officially re-opens in the new year.

The store may re-open from December 5-9 if my Candy Cane design is finished on time. If it isn't, then it will not be released until the new year.

Thank you all for your support, enormous amounts of patience and grace as I fumble my way through this.

Take care,
