Hey everyone. Can you believe it's already the holiday season again? It's crazy. I hope you're all warm and cozy! I just remodeled my studiospace and I'm not used to having freezing cold hardwood floors. As a result, I'm rather cold at the moment and equally tired, so I'm going to try to finish this post quickly so I can go hide under a mountain of blankets. <3

I've got a lot of exciting stuff going on right now. I've mentioned a top secret Pon&Zi project that's in the works, and while I'm still unable to let you all in on it, I can say that it's definitely coming along and that I'll be able to tell you all about it very very soon.

School starts again for me in just a little bit more than a month, so I'm trying to tie up loose ends before I fall victim to deadlines and stuff. I'm doing illustrations on the back panels of SIXTY-FOUR chairs for a coffee shop remodel, all within the span of like eight days, and then immediately after, they've also asked me to do four identical 7 foot by 7 foot wall paintings. Cross your fingers for me and hope I can finish everything before school because I won't have time anymore at that point. Hahaha. On top of that, I'm also working hard to finish the Pon&Zi Valentines Day cards before school as well. I've gone a bit overboard with those, but I think they'll be fancy.

I've been getting a TON of emails asking if it's too late to order pins, keychains, etc. from azuzephre.net in time to guarantee delivery before Christmas. That's a hard question to answer, especially for international orders, because the postal systems of some countries are faster than others. I can only tell you what the post office here is telling me: For any package being delivered outside of the United States, TODAY is the last day I can ship things internationally and expect them to arrive before Christmas. For orders placed within the United States, the post office says that any orders I ship before the 14th of this month will be very likely to arrive on time. I ship orders every day at least once, so if you're planning on getting somebody a PinPack, Keychain, Poster or Print for Christmas, the sooner you order, the better.

That reminds me, I've added POSTERS and a few if the more recent comics as Photo Prints to the store at azuzephre.net. I'm a lazy online shopper, so I've spent the last two hours making sexy image links for this journal to make it easier on you guys if you want to buy something. *nudge* <3333

<img src="img.photobucket.com/albums/v17…"  border="0" alt="Pon PinPack #1" /> <img src="img.photobucket.com/albums/v17…"  border="0" alt="Pon PinPack #2" />


Anyway, I hope you all have an awesome holiday season. Pleeease don't drink and drive, and be safe in general. <333

Oh my, I can't believe I found this site! I absolutely LOVE Pon and Zi... I was browsing your shop and wondering, do you think you'll be making anything I can buy (posters, keychains, photo prints, etc) of the "I wish you would love me" design? That is my favorite and I really wanna order some stuff with that on it! :)

So I was curious to know if you take Paypal :)
And I want to ship two photo prints to my boyfriend, but I don't want him to get the bill with it. Is it possible to pay for them and have them shipped to him instead of me?
I live in BC, Canada, FYI.

Absolutely. In the checkout process, the billing address and shipping address are two separate things. He won't see the prices or total. : ) And I actually only take Paypal, so yes. : D

Ah, but does it require me to sign up for your site? Not that I have a problem with that, I've been in love with Pon and Zi forever :)

:iconazuzephre:
azuzephre Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2009  Student
Nope! I'm pretty sure I've set the shop to allow 'guests' to make purchases. It's going to ask for your Paypal email, shipping and billing addresses, and of course, you have to add which item(s) you'd like to your cart. But it's very simple. No signing up for mailing lists, no spam, no account-building, it's just yeah. Quite simple. : )

Sweet! I'm super excited to get the gifts I want :). So, how long do you think it would take to get from where you are to British Columbia? I mean, I'm pretty close to the border (don't know if that matters at all ;P), and I don't really need them ASAP for Christmas. They're just going to make a fantastic gift for a fantastic person :). Oh, and the prices you have up right now, will they be changing anytime soon? Or will they stick like that?
Reply
:iconazuzephre:
azuzephre Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2009  Student
I would guess that it would take about 7 days to get to you. It's just a guess though, based on the time it's taken for other orders placed from Canada. : B

And the prices will always be the same, but sometimes I post promotional codes that give people discounts. In fact, anyone whose order total is $20.00 or more between today and December 12th will get a 20% discount on their entire order if they enter the promo code, MISTLETOE, during the checkout process.

Oh, that's nearly perfect ;D. No complaints here :)
Ohh, that's even better, since I get paid on the 11th :). Just need the money to go through on Paypal first >.>
And then, BAM.
Instant merchandise :]
I suppose I better write the code down somewhere ;P
Thanks a bunch, I know I must've asked a million and one questions :P

Here's hoping and praying you get everything done in time and still enjoy Christmas/school. I'm in the same boat, sadly.
