WizardAtWork's Shop Announcement

4.12.14 - Thinking Mother's Day? Please get your orders in before May 1st to ensure I have enough time to make your custom bath products and get them shipped to you. Thanks!

******************

3.16.14 Fragrance Line additions! I'm trying some fun new fragrances. Most of them haven't been added to most of the listings yet (that's SO time consuming!), but feel free to select "custom" and then leave one of these fun new scents in your notes with your order. Why not try: Candy Crush, Chocolate Covered Strawberries, Hazelnut Latte or Popcorn! Also, Mangosteen is back in stock! If you've never tried it, it's a wonderful, sweet fruit scent. Great for spring! (If it ever actually gets here...)

******************

2.01.14 - Shipping update! Etsy has finally made it easy for me to update shipping costs and make them more country-specific! This means I'm estimating less and probably means that international customers will pay less for shipping! I'm in the process of adding country-specific shipping rates for the UK, Australia, France and Canada. They're also giving me an option of one rate for the whole of the European Union, so I'm monkeying with that to see how/if it works for everyone. Hopefully this will make shopping easier for my international customers!

******************

1.12.14 - Trying something new. I'm showing my listings on a Tumblr account dedicated to my shop. So find me at http://www.tumblr.com/blog/wizardatworkonetsy and follow me to see what's new from the Wizard!

******************

1.07.14 - I'm letting my inner geek fly! Keep an eye on my shop for soaps and lotion bars for the fans of Doctor Who, Star Trek, Star Wars, classic video games (I mean CLASSIC... back in the 80's Atari Classic!) and more!

******************

5.19.13 - And another one bites the dust. :) Like Mangosteen, I got Violet fragrance oil as a sample from one of my suppliers. It took me over a year to go through the one ounce they sent me, so I'm not going to order any more at this point. If you really like it, I can get ahold of it, but I'll need a little lead time for it to be delivered.

In it's place I'm going to start listing oatmeal, milk and honey (my latest sample) as I go through and update listings. Feel free to request it in the notes to your order if I haven't gotten to your product yet with the update. :)

******************

3.20.13 - I'm in print! My shop was mentioned in the April 2013 issue of Parenting magazine. I'm on page 81, in the bit called "The New Eco Hero". I have to say, if you know anything about toys for small children, you know it's pretty amazing to share a sentence with Melissa and Doug toys!

Vanilla

So it's come to this... I am now receiving upwards of 4 messages a week from people who want me to send them a product for free so that they can 'review' it on their website/youtube channel/facebook page, etc...

I am not interested in these promotions. If you send me a request for free items for a site like this, I will be forwarding it to Etsy's abuse team as spam.

I'm sure some of the requests are legitimate and maybe these reviews work for other people, but the sheer numbers of them that I have been receiving recently just makes it look like a lot of people are trying to get something for nothing. And I don't want to get into the business of deciding who's a legitimate 'product reviewer' and who's trying to scam Etsy artists. So I'm going to make an executive decision to just not be involved in any of them. Thank you.

So many of you have been incredibly gracious in wishing my sick little girl ferret, Gaia, well when you order. Unfortunately at the beginning of February Gaia finally succumbed to the effects of her two cancers. I miss her like crazy. On top of that, in early January one of my boys, Kári, was diagnosed with one of the two cancers Gaia had. Adrenal cancer. So he's on treatment for that now. So if you were ordering stuff from me to support my rescue ferrets, well, we can still use your help. Kári's treatments cost around $100 a month and in the next year or so he'll need an $800 surgery. So we'd appreciate your continued support.

ETA: February 2013: Almost exactly a year to the day that I lost Gaia to a complication of her insulinoma cancer, my little boy Logi was diagnosed with the same disease. He's doing well on a special diet and medication, but we're now facing that same battle again.

On the 'silver lining' side... I'm not going to run out of the baby food jars I use for the candles and scrubs any time soon now that I'm back to making him 'duck soup'.
