I'm just going to cut to it and tell you what's been obvious recently: I AM EXTREMELY BUSY. I've barely had time to wear diapers, let alone put celebrities in them. Beth and I have been running ragged with all these plans, family, and work things and it's been so non-stop!
It would seem the only free time I had was for a tiny window somewhere between January and about a month ago... Even then, I was still bogged down!
I am still here, I will still do my best to reply to notes and comments, but unfortunately, requests are once again closed. Possibly forever ... I haven't decided yet.
For those of you with currently unfulfilled requests who JUST RECOILED in anger, fear and despair, ALL IS WELL. If you sent me a request and I REPLIED, but have not yet fulfilled it, FEAR NOT: I fully intend to do your request for you! I am, in fact, working on a couple requests right now! I told you all it would take some time, and unfortunately, this is still just as true now!
If you did not receive a reply with confirmation (me sending you the link to my journal entry about requests is NOT confirmation), well, I'm afraid I just won't get to it in this window of time.
I'm sorry! It's just that for every one request I fulfill these days, I get several more! Many of which from people I have never even spoken to! I mean, the least you can do is buy me dinner, right? lol
Thankfully, you have all been good to me and none of you have harassed me about being so far behind. Still, though, I know you want to see them sooner than later, and that weighs on me! I do sort of miss the carefree days when I just was able to make these for myself completely because I wanted to!
That's why requests may never reopen. In the beginning, I took suggestions here and there and I think I kind of liked that better. Anyway, we'll see.
Nothing is set in stone.
I have been watching my list grow and grow and every time I check one off, I realize it's barely broken the ice. Since reopening requests and posting the first request on Dec 10, I have managed to fulfill something like 36 requests, with one or two for me in there also. On my list, I have 51 more to go. That's a lot!
Anyway, I'm sorry for the delay, I hope you can all forgive me. Please also keep in mind that I am doing this of my own free will, I am not being paid to do it, nor am I profiting from it. I am making these for you because you and I happen to like them and that is something we share
Sorry for the bad news, but I hope all of you are having fun wherever you are!
