Shop Temporally Closed

Both of my shops (www.SimplyJCrochet and www.SimplyJCrochet.etsy.com) are closed for the next couple of weeks.

August was both exciting and crazy! I had 4 weeks of back to school sales that totally exceeded my expectations!

I'm running a few days behind my shipping time frame I gave...not by much, but I'm still behind.

If you placed an order between August 18th and 29th, please know that I'm working extremely hard to get your order out ASAP! I probably have already emailed you about the delay.

I have the best customers! Everyone that I have contacted told me 'no problem'! I'm so happy that they don't hate me :)

Please feel free to contact me anytime with any questions or concerns.

My shop will be open in a few weeks...stay tuned!

I'm lunching a new item....Flower Headbands! I'm working with one of my favorite photographers, Lindsey Wiatt, to take some super cute pictures.

If you are a photographer and interested in doing a work trade...LET ME KNOW!

What is a photo work trade? A photo work trade is where I make one of my crocheted items and mail it directly to the photographer. Once the photographer has taken and processed/edit the pictures, they email the finished pictures to me at jenelstgermain@aol.com No money exchange hands.

Do I qualify for a work trade? In order to qualify for this work trade you have to be a professional photographer who has a website, blog, photo stream, etc, that can be view online.

How many hats/items can I have to shoot? If this is our first photo trade there is a limit of 1-2 hats/items. There are exceptions, so please let me know when you contact me. If you have a question please leave a comment or email me at jenelstgermain@aol.com
