Good afternoon! As most of you know, we do this business on the side. This is not a 24 hr/full time business for us, as we are very busy in our personal lives and with our other jobs. Please understand this when you call multiple times and leave multiple messages. We try to get back with everyone as fast as we possibly can, but some days we just don't have the time. Please be patient and keep in mind that we ask for at LEAST a 2 week notice on all orders. We will never go days without giving you a response, but sometimes we also will not be getting back with you the day you contact us. Thank you for understanding and have a great day! :)
