Just "A Note" I Thought I'd Share...

I just finished posting the following note over on my P ~n~ P facebook page, and thought it was a good idea to copy/share here... it's sort of an "FYI" for the lack of a better term.  Thanks much for taking the time to "take note" when you have a moment.  :)

Dear Prim Friends,

I have been asked on several occasions if my items are for sale online and whether or not I will ship to such ~n~ such place, so I thought I should address the matter in a note, so that I may explain my position in hopes that you will understand why it is my great regret to inform you that I have chosen *not* to do so, at this particular time in my "Prim ~n~ Proper Shoppe" journey.  :)

The following is an "excerpt" of my recent response to one prim friend who had inquired about purchasing my items online, and my answer for everyone who has asked, and who may express such an interest in the future:

"Thank you so much for your comment and inquiry regarding my items, I so appreciate it! :D At the moment, I am only selling through my booth at The Exhibitors Boutique and Trellis Cafe, however it is my strong desire to sell online ...eventually. At this point in time, it'd be very difficult for me to do so, though I've pondered the idea intently, and often! :D Though I am a Stay-At-Home-Mommy (and Wifey), we are also a *Homeschooling* family. My eldest girl will be graduating this new year, then I have a 15 yr. old son, and two younger ones (boy and girl) that need much more of my time in the learning dept (as they *are* so much younger), which doesn't allow me as much extra time as I'd sometimes like to sit and craft. ;) Anyway, I do appreciate your asking, and look forward to being able to provide all my followers with the option to purchase my items in the future. :) Thanks so much for your understanding... and patience..."

What I did not mention in my reply is that with so much going on in our world, it is sometimes "by the skin of my teeth" that I get new items done in time for each changing season and upcoming Holiday(s).   LOL  These items are taken down to my booth at the Exhibitors Boutique & Trellis Cafe almost immediately upon completion.  At that point, it is time to start thinking about the NEXT project/season/holiday so that I may keep the booth "fresh and new" and current with the time of year.  ;) 

Another *side note* is that I have also recently taken on the task of Administrator/Photographer/"Host" for the Exhibitors facebook page, which has been a lot of fun, but is something I must stay on top of, as well.  Though it is a fairly "laid back" and simple responsibility, it is yet another project that does require more of my time, giving me even less "free time" [better put, "craft time"] than I had before accepting the wonderful offer.  ;)

So, as you can see, I have a pretty full plate at this time in my Wonderful (yet pretty busy) Life.  It is my prayer that all of you, my Prim Friends here (as well as over at my blog), will continue to follow, "Like," and remain fans of The Prim ~n~ Proper Shoppe.  :)  Your being here makes my every day, and your very kind comments over my crafts, postings and shares bring a smile to my face every single time!  You are all SO appreciated, and I hope you know just how much.  ♥ 

As a final thought, I just want to say, I would LOVE to offer up my items to all of you for purchase, but before I would ever make that "leap," I would want to BE SURE that I was able to follow through with fulfilling your requests, without disappointment.  If I cannot give my ALL (for fear of stretching myself faaar too thin), then I will simply wait until I am able to do so, in order to ensure YOUR satisfaction.  :)  ...that's just how I "roll!"  ;) 

Thank you SO MUCH for taking the time! 

Blessings to one and all,
~Morgan ♥


  1. Ok, so I'm a very new follower of your blog, but I LOVE it already. This post is so interesting to me because I'm also homeschooling my kids (2 boys) and have just found that saying "yes" to too many people for too many things is just a no-no. lol Good for you for knowing your limits...I struggle with that at times. The items you make are creative, beautiful and really cool...and I'm sure that lots of people would love to order them. But good for you for being able to say "no, not now." =) ~Beth

  2. Beth, it's so nice to "meet" you! WELCOME to my blog and thank you so much for joining me here. I truly appreciate your post, and you're so right, saying "yes" to too much is SUCH a big no-no! It's probably one of the most difficult things *to* do, but also one of the most important things to make sure we do, for ourselves and our families, not to mention, for our SANITY! lol

    I'm glad you are enjoying my blog... I hope to always be able to keep it interesting, and try to post fairly regularly. But as with anything (or is it EVERYTHING?) else, Life just gets in the way from time to time, and I don't always get in here as often as I'd like. But, I do manage to get in my craft time and make new things ever so often, and when I do, you can bet you'll hear from me, and I'll be bringing LOTS and LOTS of photos with each share! LOL ;)

    You take good care, I'm so glad you're here!
