Hello Cookie Cutter friends! This is a new place to find Up to Date shop info. Facebook and Instagram don't always show you what I have to say and a lot of the times, it's kind of important stuff! :) So this is the place to check! Scroll down to see older news! ~~Thank you for checking out this new feature page! Book mark it and check often for new deals, promotions, sales, giveaway info, etc. This is now where I'll go to give weekly updates.
4/8/2018 Sunday We are reopening the shop on Monday the 9th. Thank you for all of the wonderful feedback and responses from the Floral Boxes! xoxo You guys are the best! I am busy printing cutters for the Beachy Box that's due to go out at the very end of April! We are planning for some down time May 5-15 ish. This is to be determined. We will be out of town for some of those dates.
3/29/2018 Thursdsay Hello cookie peeps! Due to unforeseen issues, we have to delay the shipping of the box by 1 Business day. NEW shipping date is Tuesday, April 3rd. We have been waiting on our Cookie Cutter plastic that was scheduled to arrive the beginning of this week Once it finally arrived, there was only 1 spool in the box, not the 10 we ordered. Not exactly what we had planned. So,... we are behind :(
**Also, we will be taking next week off as it's Spring Break for the kids and I miss them dearly!** While we've been down for the past two weeks, we have been working more than normal on side projects and printing all of the Floral Box cutters. So this coming week, we may be able to see the kids and have time for them. The only reason I usually shut down is because we have SO much to do, that taking on additional orders is just not possible.
We appreciate your understanding! :) *The Beachy Box is SOLD OUT! So thank you all for that! We cannot wait to get going on this huge, fab box! It's going to be so amazing! 3/16/18 Shop is currently CLOSED for spring break and we will reopen on April 2nd. Time for a break! Orders that are already placed will ship out with regular shipping times. So no worries! We are still working while the shop is down, we're just not taking on new orders right now. *Floral Boxes will be shipping out at the end of March and they are AWESOME!! *If you're getting a "Review your Floral Box purchase" automated email, please disregard. We will reopen on April 2nd with new items. *We may have a new "Surprise Box" come available during this down time, keep checking back here and on our website for more details as they come available! Thank you for keeping us amazingly busy! We are always so grateful and appreciate all of you! xoxoxo **Side note: No new custom cutter orders right now. I'll probably start those up mid-April. **When you go to our site, the "COOKIE CUTTERS" tab will password protected. That's our only way to shut down.
3/3/18 Sunday Hi !! Everything placed through the 23rd shipped out on Saturday the 2nd. Easter Surprise Boxes ship out tomorrow, 3/5/18. We are currently printing orders placed on the 24th and 25th. **NEW Graduation cutters have been listed! They're very pretty!
2/28/2018 (Wednesday) Currently printing orders placed on the 19th and 20th. We have had a huge increase of sales on those dates which is why we're running past the 4-6 business day processing time. Orders placed through the 23rd will need a few extra processing days. *Easter Surprise Boxes will be shipped either on Saturday or Monday. We are finishing up the cutters for those right now. You're going to LOVE that box! Such fun!!

2/14/2018 (Wednesday) Happy Valentine's Day! I hope you made it through another successful cookie holiday! Are you already starting to think of what's coming up? **Saturday, March 17th is St. Patrick's Day **Sunday, April 1st is Easter day.

2/9/2018 (Friday) Hello! I hope you've had a great week! I am prepping pics now for NEW cookie cutters! I can't wait to show you all of the cool Easter items! We are getting orders out quickly! *Crinkle question... Some are asking how much is half a pound of crinkle. It's 8 oz (weighed out) and packed into a Gallon size Ziplock bag. There is a limit of 6 bags allowed per order, due to the shipping weight and size of boxes we have on hand. You can include cookie cutters in with Crinkle orders. There is special shipping for crinkle due to the sheer weight involved and it is $12. I hate to charge so much, but more times than not, it goes over $12 and I eat the cost. $12 is the average cost so I stuck with that. *COUPON CODE: We still have a code available. Use: UPTODATE to save a little money. Enter it at check out. :) Have a great weekend! :) XOXO
2/2/2018 (Friday) What a week! Oh my goodness. Thank you for all of the orders, we are working hard to get them out in a timely manner.

1/18/2018 (Thursday) What's New? **USPS shipping rates increase a little starting on 1/21/18 so we have just made that change on our end to cover that cost. We changed First Class from $3.75 to $4. Priority from $8 to $8.24. Canada from $14 to $16. Europe from $20 to $22 and the rest of the world from $25 to $27.
A bit of advice, if you ship your products as well, do yourself a favor and make sure you are quoting/charging your customers accordingly. At the end of the day, business is business. Right?
**I'll be hosting a quick Giveaway on Friday, 1/19 on Instagram. It's full of fun prizes and a $25 gift card to our shop!
**Miss out on the ever so popular Valentine's Day box? Well no need to be sad any longer! The super cute cutters that were included in that box will be showcased and listed tomorrow!
