Summer greetings, I hope you and your flocks are staying cool in the heatwaves! I've got a lot of news to tell you about! It's been a few months since I've updated my blog, and it's great to be back in touch with you all! Due to some health challenges, I had to take a break from creating the monthly newsletter and Bird of the Month collections, which you can read more about below.

BIRD OF THE MONTH COLLECTIONS

As you probably know, for quite a few years I have offered a collection of new jewelry in a different species, for auction on eBay at sale prices, every month. It's become a bit too much for me to continue doing this each month, while still keeping up with custom orders through my website. So, at least for now, the Bird of the Month will change from being a collection of items to just a single item auctioned on eBay.

"VIP" CUSTOM ORDERS STARTING AUGUST 1!

As mentioned a few months ago, I had planned to have the "VIP Custom Order" option going by now, for those of you who wanted to be able to place rush/confirmed orders for a higher fee. There were some delays, but I have good news for you! On August 1st, I will be putting the form up, and will begin accepting a couple of VIP orders each month. To read more about it, please go to the new VIP Custom Order page.

For those of you wanting a "regular" custom order, I'm continuing to do monthly drawings from the custom order requests that I receive, on the first day of each month. If you haven't had your order drawn yet, please keep trying and know that I appreciate your interest. When I have cancellations, I generally pick a replacement from those of you that have been entering the longest.

WHITE BELLIED CAIQUE & BARE EYED COCKATOO ON AUCTION

The Bird of the Month is the White Bellied Caique and this Glass Beaded Necklace and Earring set shown above is currently on auction. I have also listed a Bare Eyed Cockatoo Charm Choker necklace, shown below. They are on auction on eBay until July 27th.

Summer sure seems to be speeding by quickly! I haven't kept up with blogging as often as I had planned, but I hope there are still a few of you enjoying the blog anyways!

My mom has been laid up for over 2 months with a very painful hernaited disc, and will be having surgery in a few days. Because of this and other important things that popped up which have needed my attention, the remaining custom work has been a bit slow in being completed, however I'm just about done, whew! Once all orders are completed however, I will not be accepting additional custom orders for a while, so that I can "re-charge" a bit.

I realize there are many of you whom have been patiently waiting for a chance to place a custom order, and I'm sorry to have to ask you to wait a bit longer. My family and health have to come first and need my focus at the time, so I expect to put a hold on returning to custom orders for a few months. Non-custom art will continue to be made available through my eBay Store and Etsy shop.

If you aren't signed up yet to receive my email newsletters, please do join my email list if you would like to stay informed on my schedule for limited openings and other news!

I'm enjoying the Summer Olympics - wasn't the opening ceremony amazing? Wow! I'm going to be following the USA women's gymnastics in particular, especially Iowa girl Shawn Johnson!
