2020 Update + Sale

Hello dear friends!

Hope this update finds you well as we head in to the last months of the year.

What an unexpected year, to say the least!

As most of you know, I had paused any new releases back in March when we found out my children would be finishing out the school year remotely at home and I'd be helping with their online learning. 

Our family took the summer to relax and escape to the beach. And I (im)patiently waited to hear the news of school. Here in Northern Delaware we learned all public schools would be starting fully remotely, with a plan to return hybrid in mid-October.  Again, I decided to push pause on any new releases. With my husband being a teacher, I knew I'd be the one primarily helping the kids with their virtual learning and I did not want to add any more stress to our lives.

At the end of last week, we learned the school our kids attend pushed the return to hybrid learning again, now until November. Rather than continue to hold my breath and keep pushing product creation and release dates I've made the decision to officially announce there are no new releases planned for the remainder of 2020, and no dates for 2021 at the moment.

Many people don't know that Neat and Tangled has actually been just me and my husband (who also works full time). Of course we have our amazing design team, and at times I've had help with customer service emails from Sarah, and product packing during busy times from Marla, but other than that it has just been the two of us. Preparing all product, inventory management, packing all orders, and everything in between. So for now while I am busy with the kids during the day, there's just not enough time, or energy, to actively create, launch and manage new product.

I know it may be a disappointment to our long time customers. And if you know me, you know this decision did not come lightly.  However, as I have shared so many times, Neat and Tangled was born out of a desire to be able to stay home with my children, do something I love, and build my schedule around my family. I feel so very grateful that at this time in our lives, I am able to pause work to shift my focus back to my children.

So while I help them, in between Zoom calls and snack breaks, I'm busy behind the scenes clearing out old inventory, reorganizing my office, painting and doodling new designs.  We still have quite a bit of retired product hanging out that I would love to see find homes to make room for the new. So a big sale it is!

A few details:
- Sale is good on in stock items only, and cannot be combined with other coupon codes. 
- Please allow for extending shipping notifications due to the large volume of orders placed! 
- Coupon code can be used on items already marked down in the SALE section.
- All items in the SALE section of the shop are retired products, and will not be restocked - once they are gone they are gone!

Head over to the shop to grab some new favorites!

Also, for those of you who followed our last few releases, you'll know I brought on Robbie Bryant, a friend and local tattoo artist, to collaborate with on designs.  It has been an exciting year for him as well, as he is preparing to open his own tattoo shop, Omnia, here in Delaware in the coming month. If you follow him on Instagram, be sure to send him well wishes on his new endeavor!

As always, thank you for the continued love and support!

With love,
Danielle
