Well, for the last few months I have been brewing something quite special...
... a little baby!
My husband and I are delighted to say we are expecting our second child in April 2016, and our first-born is certainly excited at the prospect of being a big sister. But of course, this will effect the running of Vanilla Retro Stationery as we settle into life with a newborn amongst our midst.
So, after much consideration, I have decided to cease offering a custom design service from January 2016, and plan to reopen this service in January 2017. All my existing designs will still be available, and we will continue to print and create our Wedding Stationery with as much care and attention as we currently do, but unfortunately due to the time involved in custom work, it's not something I think will be feasible.
The studio will also be closed briefly in April, around the due date and shortly after, so we can settle the new one in before resuming work.
So, some important dates for Vanilla Retro Brides & Grooms:
- JANUARY 2016 -
no further custom design work will be undertaken
- APRIL 2016 -
My due date is the 25th of April, but as we know Babies don't necessarily adhere to due-dates so I am planning to put the business into "vacation mode" from around the 15th. I will endevour to have all orders placed up until this point completed in my usual timeframes but please be aware, orders placed from March-April may suffer delays if I happen to go into Labour early.
-MAY 2016 -
If all goes to plan, I hope to have the studio back up and running in mid May, around the 20th. Please stay tuned on our Facebook page for updates on this.
