Good news for me, bad news for you

I am happy to announce I am expecting a baby the end of March. Unfortunately this isn't good news for all of my clients and potential customers. I skip by all of the morning sickness and other symptoms in the beginning of pregnancy but I get hit by Pregnancy Induced Hypertension in the latter half of my pregnancies. 

I have been placed on bed rest with 2 of my 3 girls and I expect to face similar challenges with this baby as well. It was a very hard decision to make but I will not be taking any more orders for the foreseeable future. I will be finishing up the orders I have on my list and then I will be closed for an extended maternity leave. 

While I am away from Once Upon A Costume no one has my permission to sell under my name or use my specific designs. I have not decided when I will reopen as I am going to have a huge adjustment getting used to having a baby again, my youngest now is 7. I hope to return to work once the baby is 6 months old, the end of next summer but only time will tell if this is actually going to be realistic.

I am very sorry that I will be unable to help you out with your costumes for now but I need to take care of myself and my family for the next while. I will definitely miss my sewing machine and making all of you look beautiful!!

Thank you for your understanding and I hope be able to sew for all of you again in the future.
