So for those of you who followed along, we took a short break from the end of June to early July. I had some payment processing issues with my Etsy shop that happened to coincide exactly with leaving for vacation. I was originally planning to leave my shop open, but the payment issues would have meant manually creating and sending invoices via PayPal for each order, which was just too much.
I'm happy report that both my family and my payment options are back! Etsy helped me get things all squared away and we are set! So thanks for your patience while we were away, and here's a quick glimpse of the coast in Marmaris, about 5 minutes from where we stayed.
