What a stressful collection!
What a week we had here at the studio!
We spend weeks preparing and getting ready to launch a new collection online and you can never be to sure what challenges will lie ahead. Like forgetting to add our website link to our Patriotic email that was sent out to everyone on launch day. A little stressful, but we were able to remedy that pretty quickly by resending out another email with the link. OK!
THEN around lunch time we were tweaking the website links and we accidentally deleted something on the website server. OMG!! We totally messed things up BIG TIME! Everything with this collection was missing and lost and the web designer who worked on the site was MIA. That section of the website was down for over 10 + plus hours and wasn't fully working until a few days later. We never felt so helpless and disappointed.
But on the bright side you guys are awesome and always order our Swirly ornaments as soon as they are online (5 of the 12 designs were sold out) so lots of you were able to get your orders early enough before the site crashed and our stress level rose.
We are happy to say we are finally back on track and we promise we will never delete anything again...especially in the middle of a launch.
We had so much fun creating and design this Patriotic collection we just wanted to make sure everyone was able to enjoy these designs. Here are some extra pictures of this collection.
Happy Fourth Everyone!
