Hey holiday crafters! Thank you so much for the put-together book orders over the past 2 days!! I can’t wait to see all the amazing robots you guys come up with and craft vicariously through you. Tim and I are always so excited about our little self-publishing projects and we’re so grateful and thrilled (and relieved!) when people are excited about them too.
Speaking of Tim, I always assume it goes without saying, but maybe it doesn’t, he is, of course, the one who did the Spaceboy & Robot’s booklet cover design. I love it so much! We were under such a tight deadline this time, trying to get it out by Christmas. I assigned him covers and started working on patterns and instructions and I swear he did this thing in one night. He’s a star.
Here’s the new thank you card that’s going out with orders. Miss Hobbibot is very excited about her new role as ambassador of gratitude.
In shipping news, the first batch of orders went out this morning and the rest should be out by this afternoon. And now for a public service announcement: I ran into a problem with the orders that I wanted to let you all know about because I know a lot of you are selling things online and using paypal. I always track my orders from the email notifications that paypal sends me. Starting Monday, emails from paypal have been going missing. This has never happened with me and paypal before and I’ve been using it for forever. I called them and they said that "email notifications are not guaranteed". ok, swell. I’m guessing it’s the holiday surge. I had to go through every transaction in paypal for the last week or so and double check to make sure I’d caught it. That’s how I noticed it just started on Monday. There were quite a few that hadn’t made it into my inbox and it appears to be getting worse as the days go on. So, if you’re using paypal and relying on the emails, guess that’s not the best way to go. And please do not worry, you don’t need to email me to check that I got your order, I’ve been through it a 100 times and I’ve got everyone.
Paypal will not ruin our plans for robot domination!
