Dearest sparkly ones, thank you so much with your patience as I continue to navigate sparkling during a pandemic - keeping us all safe is my top priority!
Currently, I feel that working just Tuesdays and Fridays, until the surge simmers, is a good compromise. I unfortunately don't feel comfortable offering a booking link publicly yet. But anyone who wants to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org can have access to it, so please feel free to ask! Texting is okay but beware I lose texts after a span of time passes, I have no way to search back for people who asked weeks or months ago, I'm so sorry about that, I want to catch everyone and I'm trying but they all just get buried and impossible to find. Email is searchable so that is a safer bet. You are always encouraged to reach out again if you don't hear from me the first or second or third time!
I am opening appointments up one day at a time, making sure I feel safe before booking very far ahead of time. I am still adjusting my time slots, as I'm finding myself excessively over-sparkling out of an eagerness to make up for all of the lost time. I need to limit myself better so that I can serve more people and not over-extend myself.
Currently, I am making about half of what I did before, given the time needed for disinfecting and the cost of the N Portland Overlook House studio. It's not sustainable long term, but when things improve later in the spring and summer, I hope I can increase my efficiency a little bit. It's a difficult dance, but I'm willing to learn! Thank you for your patience as I find my balance in all of this, I appreciate your support more than I can say.
💖 Editing to gently add: if Tuesdays and Fridays don't work from you, I do have some flexibility, so please feel free to ask. I also have enough space to share indoors safely, so if you have a friend or kiddos who can stay in the next room or downstairs while we work, that would be totally fine, too, just let me know what you need. I also have ADA access at the building in the Garden Room, so just let me know beforehand if you need to avoid stairs. 💖
