Shop Closed (Temporarily)

penguins and pillows all boxed up for the move

Hello from Los Angeles! πŸ™‚
As you may already know, we’ve been busy with the move from SF to LA for my husband’s new job. Β 2012 has started out with an exciting big change! We drove here last night and have settled into our temporary housing as we wait on our permanent home situation which we’ll be moving into next month. Sounds a little crazy, right? Moving twice! But thankfully, we’ll be moving all our belongings only once: from our old home to our permanent home. (Does this make any sense to you? 😑 I hope it does.)

So the sad news is, My Dear Darling shop will be closed temporarily. Apologies for any inconvenience. I’ve been receiving quite a bit of Valentine inquiries and I’ve had to turn down every single one. 😦 It bums me out to no end.
So I’ve been thinking, for those that were looking forward to My Dear Darling Valentine’s products; Although I’m unable to craft any plush dolls or pillows (because my tools and supplies are boxed up in SF), I could possibly make some downloadable items for Valentines Day. What do you think? I’m brainstorming ideas right now but maybe some cards that you can print out and give to your Valentine? Would that be something you’d use? πŸ™‚
my new workspace in LA
I was able to fit my iMac and a mini penguin in the car so I’ll be working hard on the computer the next couple months in hopes of creating some digital love for you. πŸ˜‰ It’s still surreal that we’re living in LA. I feel like we’re just on a very long vacation and our apartment back in SF is still waiting for us to come home to. Maybe in a few days it’ll really hit me…
Have a wonderful weekend!
And as always, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. πŸ™‚
Lots of Smiles,

  1. I know you said you will be closed for awhile do you know how long it will be before you can start ordering again… like a give or take time frame? I would love to purchase some of your penguins for myself and my boyfriend… it is kind of our thing and would love to get some penguins around the house… yours are so sweet and adorable


  2. Hello penguin4evers! πŸ™‚ Thank you so much for your sweet message! I apologize for the inconvenience of the shop being closed. I’m hoping to reopen the shop by April… Crossing my fingers for an earlier date but I’ll definitely post a blog update and send out emails for those on the mailing list. If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Thanks again! Lots of Smiles, Akiyo
