Emails sent in before 12pm, replied!

All orders take around 14 days after payment received to complete, I know it's a painfully long wait, but for now it is the quickest I can handle (one-woman show here!), thanks for understanding!
Very, very grateful to each of you who stopped by & shopped here, you allow me to live the dream! =)
