Studio Update 3004

Been busy here in the Incubator testing some fabulous new resin colors and deciding on which ones I will be keeping as my regulars. I have decided on 4 and will have pictures later in the week. Just wanted to get a quick update out

In the resin experimenting process I cast just 2 or 3 Ethel dolls that will be available as one of a kind resin test dolls. Very pretty natural to tanned tones with a touch of transparency. 
These little sweethearts will be available for adoption late next week.
Soooo much going on ….no wonder I haven’t been to the lap pool lately, hehe, this is much more fun!

Sprite Nola’s are ready to flitter home and I am sending out shipping requests over the next day and starting to ship her the following day (Monday Feb 12)

Don’t forget she will be leaving here in Mexico via FedEx, where she goes through customs to the United States. Elizabeth my wonderful shipping helper and Facebook admin for the Stella and the CreamSoda Kids group receives all of the pre labelled packages and drops them off for me at the USPS office in West Virginia. THEN each individual package goes on it’s way to it’s destination in the US, Canada, Australia and everywhere else.

The reason I do things this way is because shipping through regular mail in Mexico is very unreliable, if your parcel ever arrives it will be in about 3 months after shipped. So to be safe I use FedEx, but it’s very expensive and to ship one doll to the US is $150. That is just craziness!!

So in my best attempt to keep shipping reasonable-ISH the packages go through channels and arrive safely but they do take about 1-2 weeks to arrive depending on customs. Also using this bulk shipping method I need to wait to send a box until it is full of packages, which can take a week.
