I don't even know what to title this...

Posted by Erin on 1/26/12.

The next batch of Nostalgic lacquers is due to go up for sale on Saturday. The plan was for me to run all of my millions of daily errands very early tomorrow morning and then mix 100+ bottles of polish up for the remainder of the day and likely into the wee morning hours.

But without getting into too many personal details, I will say that someone VERY close to me and my family has unfortunately passed on today. And I don't want to say too much about it because I just feel like I'd be making it about me and it's so NOT about me. She was a fucking awesome lady and will be very missed.  (And believe me, she would not care in the least that I said "the f word" when talking about her either.)

I am only writing this to let everyone know that while I do fully intend to work as hard as I can on producing the lacquer, getting it up on Etsy, and shipping any orders that come in, I do highly doubt that I will be as present over the next week or so as I have been thus far. I normally try to ship within 2 days (or in most cases, the next day) of receiving an order and answer all inquiries promptly, but those things may be slightly delayed this coming week and I wanted to give you all a heads up about it.

Thanks for bearing with me through the numerous stock issues and everything else thus far. I appreciate your patience.
