Christmas in July!

Things have been BUSY around WhirlyBird Designs.  Its amazing how much my little business has grown in the past few months.  I appreciate all of my fans and customers.  I couldn't do it without you.  All of your wonderful ideas and support really make me excited to sit at my work bench every day.  I continue to strive to make quality  pieces in a timely manner. 

With the massive holiday season just around the corner, I thought it would be a great time to remind everyone that I do make custom Christmas Ornaments.  I was hit REALLY HARD last year with ornament orders, so this is me begging and PLEADING to please get those holiday orders in as soon as you can.  It makes my life so much easier, and it ensures you don't have to wait during the holiday rush to receive your pieces.  I have decided to discount my holiday ornaments for a few weeks, just to help encourage everyone to get the orders in sooner, rather than later.  And for anyone reading this post, you can save 20% off your entire order from my shop with coupon code HAPPYDAY20.  Just another way I'd like to say Thanks to everyone who supports me :)  As always, check out my facebook page for all of my current deals and specials www.facebook.com/sentimentalelegance and my etsy show to browse everything I have in the shop www.whirlybirddesigns.etsy.com 

Our First Christmas as Mr. & Mrs. Ornament Baby's First Christmas 

Happy New Year!

Its hard to believe that another year has come and gone.  I am so excited for 2014 and all of the excitement it brings!  I have a lot of new designs that I have created recently, and I am so eager to share them with everyone!  The holidays were BRUTAL for me, and I appreciate everyone's patience as I made 1247 orders in November and December--1,247!  I still cannot believe it.  That's roughly 2,500-3,000 items that I made over the course of 6 weeks!  Needless to say, my back hurt, my arms hurt, and I was totally exhausted.  I was so ready for my little vacation at the end of the year!

Now I'm back to work with my usual routine, making special one of a kind pieces for everyone!  Here are a few reminders:

Valentine's Day is quickly approaching!  International cut off date for orders is January 15, 2014.  Domestic/US order cut off is currently January 31st (though this may change if I find myself very busy).

Some things to keep in mind:

International orders are encouraged to be placed 1 month prior to the date you  need them.  Every country is different.  Some take 14 days to process through customs, and others take 21-30 days.  There is no rhyme or reason for it.  I cannot speed up the process, though I wish I could!

I ship everything within 3-5 business days, unless you purchase rush service.  When it comes to a holiday, I generally cut off domestic orders around 2 weeks prior to the holiday, to give me enough time to catch up and get the orders in the mail in time for them to reach their destination--however, if I get very busy, such as around Mother's Day and Christmas, my cut off may be around 3-4 weeks ahead of the holiday.  It just depends.  Please, do not wait until the last minute.  Once I reach a cut off, and I do not make exceptions.

Please make sure you keep up with my facebook page, as I tend to up date that a lot more frequently than I do this website (I'm going to work on that...promise!)  I will post all sales and specials on my facebook page, so make sure you stay in the loop!  www.facebook.com/sentimentalelegance

I hope everyone is enjoying 2014 so far!  I look forward to all of the new design ideas I will be making in the coming months!

Fall is here at last!

Whirlybird Designs will welcome the arrival of fall at Oakland Baptist Church's Fall Festival on Saturday, October 12th 2013.  The festival begins at 8 o'clock A.M. and ends at 2 P.M.  Stop by and you can choose from 150+ ready-made pieces at greatly discounted prices!  Don't worry about brining cash; we'll be able to accept all forms of payment including major credit cards, cash, check and PayPal.

More information about the Oakland Baptist Church, including directions to the church can be found here.

Looking ahead...

I apologize.  Apparently I am terrible with keeping up with my website.  I promise to do better in the future!

WhirlyBird Designs has been extremely busy all summer long!  I have seen quite a few wedding orders coming through, so congrats to everyone who got married this summer, and thank you so much for allowing me to be apart of your special day, even if it was just a tiny part :)

As the new school year approaches, so do all of the holidays.  I'm trying my best to sit back and relax now, because I know all of my holiday orders will start to roll in towards the middle of October.  I am working on new Christmas ornament designs daily, trying to come up with new ideas for my customers to enjoy!  This year, all ornaments will be made of high quality stainless steel.  It is a fantastic product, and works perfectly for ornaments, because it shouldn't rust or tarnish year after year.  I am very excited about this product!

So this is me, begging and PLEADING with everyone.  Please, please, please do not wait until the last minute to place a holiday order.  My usual turn around time is 3-5 business days, and I fully expect that I will be extending that turn around time the closer we get to Christmas.  So to ensure you get your item(s) in a timely manner, please make sure you get your orders in as early as possible!  

And as always, I will be showing all of my new products on my facebook page, so make sure you "like" my fan page www.facebook.com/sentimentalelegance to stay in the loop!  I will also be having some fantastic flash sales every Friday, so don't miss out!

If  you have a design idea, I'd love to hear it!  Send me an email at becky@whirlybirddesigns.com


Spring Has Sprung!

Finally, Spring is here!  The windows are open, the birds are chirping, and the flowers are blooming!  We are finally rescued from our winter "Cabin fever", and not a moment too soon!

With the arrival of Spring, we also welcome several BIG events of the year.  WhirlyBird Designs is in full "Mother's Day" mode, and getting busier every day!  With many personalized "Mother" and "Grandmother" pieces, the options are endless when it comes to making a one of a kind keepsake for that special mom in your life.  Please get your Mother's Day orders in ASAP to avoid a lengthy turn around and long shipping times.  My cut off is currently May 1st for all Mother's Day orders.  After the 1st, PLEASE email me prior to purchase if you need it by the holiday, to ensure a delivery time.

The week of May 6th-10th is Teacher Appreciation Week!  Don't forget that special teacher in your child's life.  I offer many different "educator" pieces, and I'm happy to make a custom designed piece for that extra special teacher!  These pieces are also wonderful as end of the year gifts, if you opt out of the Teacher Appreciation week!

Towards the end of May and into June, we will also be celebrating our graduates!  What a great accomplishment one makes to graduate high school or college.  I have many "graduate inspired" pieces, as well as "inspirational" pieces.  You can personalize them with their college or high school's colors, and in some cases, I can get charms to represent a mascot!  Again, the options are endless!

And looking ahead--June welcome's Father's Day!  It is NEVER too early to think about dad.  I have several keychains PERFECT for the best dad's around.  Feel free to send me a message if you have a special idea to share.
