AN APOLOGY !


                                       
 
I would like to apologize for
the inconvenience this last
sale has caused.
 
Unfortunately I had no power over
the event.
Just as I went to publish,
the computer locked, and then completely
crashed.
Nothing, just a blue screen.
I tried frantically to restore it.
Once I calmed down, and had enlisted every ones help
(to no avail),
I called my provider, and we got it going again.
All day there had been power dips.
To boot, lots of the writing under the doll pictures
had disappeared.
I did not even notice at first, until frantic e-mails arrived
with questions.
Hopefully this will be a one-time event.
 
But, I want to thank everyone who hung in there
that evening.
I appreciate you all so very much,
and I thank you from the bottom of my heart
for giving my creations a new
and loving home.
 
With love to you all,
Evi
