christmas in october?

via martha

thinking of christmas in october makes my brain hurt. 
i am not the shop way ahead of time type.
i plan to get 90% of my christmas shopping done all in one place.
but if you are the list making, sale shopping, get it done before thanksgiving type, I'm talking to you.
actually, if you have any allora handmade items on your wish list or on your gift list, i'm talking to you.
i know, i'm asking a lot of you to think about all this, but just call it fair warning.
because of the turn around time for my shop, i can only guarantee delivery in time for christmas for orders made before december 1st.
i'll say it again.
if you want to gift allora handmade this year, order before december 1st!
{ducks and hides.} {dodges tomatoes being thrown.}
having said that, you may notice that there are a few colors already sold out in my shop. i am busy as a bee trying to stay on top of all of the orders coming in (thank you!) AND prepare for november.
november is already my busiest month of the year, and with the market as well as the opportunity to participate in one of my favorite local boutiques, bijou, the next 6 weeks are going to be IN.SANE.
so, be patient with me (please!). if you don't see a color you want, shoot me an email and i'll let you know what the turn around time will be.
i'm not saying you have to shop NOW. just be warned about december. and if you would be so kind to put a little note in at checkout (in paypal) letting me know something is for christmas, that would help me not feel so anxious since that is still 8 weeks away.
holy moly. 8 weeks!!?!?
i better get shopping.
