Last Batch Of Valentine Ornament in ebay 12th January!

As you can read from the title, this will be our last ebay listing for Valentine’s day theme. Some of you requested me to make another ornament from The Sweetheart Tree design -Cupid Love Sampler. So here she is. But this time, I did a little color changes in the ribbon rose pin and the twisted cording were in pink glitter and white silver glitter color instead. It is similar to the previous one (Oh..the previous one is just on the header image of my blog, can you see the difference?), not 100% the same. Interesting right? Also backing cotton fabric is changed to match this ornament. This round, to be fair to the previous winner of cupid love sampler ornament, I have set the starting bid higher. If you are interested, just take a look at it. The next two ornaments are relist items unsold from the previous week.

~Just a little more to share with my readers here today. In my last posting, I mentioned shipment from mid december last year are mostly delayed. And YES! The delay was terrible! I had a bad time dealing with my local post office. Keep calling them up and visited my nearest post office twice in 5 days time. LOL. However staff are rather friendly there. They did help out by tracking the mails in their system. Great! Because USPS tracking system is always slow, and when you ship anytime during the long holidays in peak seasons like christmas and new year, you are always on the “waiting list”. Mails seems never move. Some stuck in shipping process and all you can do is to wait and wait for someone kind enough to pick it up and ship for you. Some unlucky ones, just fated to sit somewhere in the customs waiting to pass through. I always try to ship fast for my customers in ebay but I do not have control over the shipping process. And when a customer message you telling you item not receive after waiting for a month, the next moment I thought: “Oh NO!!something bad has happened to my package!!” —   :C Finally I received a good news from a customer on 10th January 2017. Thanks to Gwen (my ebay customer), letting me know item finally arrived in her doorstep, so finally  the ‘long waiting game’ was over. I hope my another customer will receive her packages soon just like Gwen did. Both were shipped out during the “very peak seasons”. – “learn something from this experience, always avoid shipping during the Christmas and New Year peak season.”(**last updates on 11th January, my another customer finally received her ornament. Now I am hoping the other three ornaments will arrive soon. Thanks to Shelley keeping me updated!)

My country’s Chinese New Year long holidays are getting nearer. It falls on second last week of January this year. Therefore, this week will be my last listing in ebay before the chinese new year long holidays. Unlike new year, Chinese New Year holidays will not affect the shipping duration. Because postal office is closed here during this time, I decided to give myself a little long break. It’s been some time since my last break listing in ebay. But during the long break, I will still be blogging here sometimes. Okay, enough of my long posting today. Been rather long-winded these days..perhaps getting too old? LOL. Lets get started and take a look at the ornaments.

4 Valentine Ornament in ebay 7th January 2017

Hello !

It’s our 2017 first ebay auction for this week. The auctions will be on 7th January 2017, Saturday around 6pm PDT. Some of you who won and purchased some ornaments from me, message me telling me you have not receive some of your package that you paid on last year mid December. And Yes! Most of the packages sent out by Registered Airmail shipped out from the second week of December 2016 onwards are mostly delayed due to Christmas holidays and New Year. I wrote to my local Post Office and checked with them. They mentioned most packages sent during this period must be prepare that they will be delay. Now since the long holidays are over, everything has been back to normal. In case you have already receive the delayed package, I will like to thank you for waiting.  And for some of you who are still waiting for the package to arrive, please be patient since it is common for package to delay during this period of time. I am so sorry to keep you waiting and I appreciate your kindness understanding that shipping time is beyond my control. In most cases, if you still have not receive your package after 30 working days of the shipment date, please kindly contact me in ebay. I will check it out for you. Thank you.
