Well, I tried to hop back into decanting for a couple of months there, but that just highlighted to me that I don't have the kind of time and fortitude needed to devote to the sport anymore. :(

So, as of now, I am officially retiring from decanting. It's possible that a really amazing and small update may lure me back for a month, but I'll no longer be regularly doing circles, and I almost certainly won't be doing the big holiday releases.

Thanks again to everyone who's been riding along with me; I can be very glad that my decantees were never my reason for leaving. ;)

I'll see you elsewhere around the BPALverse!

Fraggles! What else do I need to say? XD

Update 6/25: Aaand everything's shipped! :D Hopefully packages get to everyone soon!

6/22: Decanting's done, and the first packages went out today! The rest should be going out tomorrow and Monday :) Thanks for your patience!

6/18: And our stuff is here! This is going to be an overtimey sort of week for me at work, but since weeknight decanting is usually sort of slow for me anyway, there may not be a noticeable difference... :p

6/6: Our order's been placed! :D And my new shipment of vials came today, yay! XD


I'd like to place this order on the evening of Wednesday, June 6th, so please try to get your payments in by then! This circle will be limited to 3 bottles per scent.

Fraggle Rock!
decants: $5.00

Update 5/21: And they're off! Everything's gone out today, so hopefully they'll reach you all soon!

5/18: Our order arrived safe and sound and complete; decanting's about wrapped up, but since I'm up late with that, that means packages won't be going out until Monday. But that gives me plenty of time to get *all* of them done ;D

5/14: Wow!! Crazy! We have shipping! :o

5/7: - This order is now closed to new additions! I'll be placing the order tomorrow morning to hopefully let a couple more payments filter in :)


Well, what better circle to crawl out of my cocoon than the Metamorphosis? :)

In an effort to ease my way back into decanting, I'm limiting this circle to 2 bottles per scent. I generally don't like doing that, but it's been a while since I've spent long nights decanting and packing, so I don't want to overwhelm my rusty self :)

The Goods
Strawberry Moon 2012
decants: $3.75

Metamorphosis
decants: $3.75
fullset (11 scents): $38.00

After dealing with a very hectic holiday perfume blitz, I've decided to take some time off from decanting. Between Weenies and Yules, I lost a lot of time to work on personal projects that have been languishing while I've been frantically decanting, packing, and shipping. (I actually took off the week between Christmas and New Year's to have a bit of free time, and spent it all on BPAL!) So, for the time being, I'm shuffling my priorities a bit.

I'm not quite sure how long I'll be taking off, but I will not be decanting Lupers this year. Just a heads-up, since I expect those to pop up any time now. I'll still be around, probably trying to shift all these Weenie and Yule leftovers first and foremost, so if you have questions, especially as you receive your Yule orders, I'm still here! Just not decanting at the moment. :)

Thanks everyone for being awesome, patient decantees; I put enough stress on myself to get these things done and it's a good thing not to have that compounded by external sources. XD; Y'all are what keep me in the game :)

Update 1/4: And everything is shipped! :D As you receive your orders, let me know if something seems to be missing. I believe everything's been accounted for, but with over 600 decants to mess with, it's entirely possible there's been a slip-up somewhere. ^_^;

12/31: Still wrapping up a few more orders... mail's done for today (Saturday) so everything left should be going out on Tuesday, since there's no mail on Monday. Sorry for the delay, but this really should be it!

12/24: Everything is here as of... Wednesday? But I'm still in the process of mailing and shipping the BPAL Yules. On the bright (??) side, if you have a Yule or Anniversary order with me and didn't opt to combine shipping, you can now! ;)

12/5: And our order is in! Here's hoping it won't be too long :)

12/3: Just as an FYI, I'm hoping to order Sunday or Monday evening at the latest!


The fact that we've got three puddin's this Yule season made me giggle. :D

So, yes, here's my small portion of the BPTP update, with a catch: because of the complications of shipping them, on top of all those other decant circles I need to take care of AND the usual December real-life craziness, I will not be taking non-perfume add-ons for this circle. (Perfume bottles and imp stockings are okay.) I'm sorry about that, but I already foresee crying myself to sleep in a week or so over the amount of decants I'm going to be dealing with this month. ^_^;

With that being said, I will be decanting the three puddin's, provided folks want them, of course :)

The Goods
Yule Puddin's
decants: $3.75

For reference! Add-ons with fees included:
Stockings: $21.65 US/$21.85 international
Perfumes: $20.60 US/$20.80 international

* In addition to other decant circles, items from my sales page can be added on for combined shipping :)

(I really should have posted this earlier, apologies!)

For those who might have missed my post on S&S or the update on the Phoenix circle page, I nabbed 2 bottles of Leather Phoenix for our circle, and priority for those decants go to folks who are already in the circle :) So if you'd like a decant or half, drop on by! On Friday the bottles open up for everyone. :)

Update 12/31: All international packages are out at this point, as well as pretty much any orders that were combined with Yules. Still wrapping up a few more orders... mail's done for today (Saturday) so everything left should be going out on Tuesday, since there's no mail on Monday. Sorry for the delay, but this really should be it!

12/24: Everything is here as of Tuesday, but I'm still in the process of mailing and shipping the BPAL Yules. The Puddin's from BPTP are here as well, so if you have a Yule or Puddin' order with me and didn't opt to combine shipping, you can now! ;)

12/17: And we have shipping! Unfortunately, I'm not expecting to be able to tackle these until after Christmas Day because of the Yules, but for a (heh) relatively small order, I should have them out in a couple of days after I start :)

11/22: Our order is in! And, because they still seem to be available... I ordered two bottles of Leather Phoenix as well :) Assuming that part of my order doesn't get cancelled (?!), I will open these for decants and half-decants for folks already participating in this circle. If there's still some left by Friday, Nov. 25, I'll open them up for everyone. :) Here's hoping the order actually goes through!

11/20: For sanity's sake, I'm capping this order at 4 bottles each XD;;


Ahh, the Anniversaries are right on time, even if Weenies and Yules are a bit late this year ;D Due to the proximity to the Yules, unless the shipping order ends up being totally wonky, Yules will definitely be decanted first. Just saying. ^_^;

Because of the extra-limited status of Leather Phoenix, I will not be decanting it. Sorry for any inconvenience :o Leather Phoenix now added!

Okay, with all the notable news out of the way... ^^;

The Goods
Ode to the Day
decants: $3.75
Set of 4: $14.00

Leather Phoenix
decants: $3.75
half-decants: $2.00

12/31: All Yules-only orders are out at this point, as well as all international packages. Still wrapping up a few more combined orders... mail's done for today (Saturday) so everything left should be going out on Tuesday, since there's no mail on Monday. Sorry for the further delays, but this really should be it!

12/24: Decanting's done and mailing's begun, but the Post Office will be closed until Tuesday, further slowing things down. ~_~ At least at that point the Christmas mail scrum should be over, I suppose! Apologies for the continued delays. This is apparently the worst time of year for me to get anything non-family-related done!

12/18: Well, "everything" is relative. :| I've discovered today that I only ordered 1 bottle of Mocking the Invisible World... when I certainly needed 2. I'm going to be asking the folks in that bottle if they'd be willing to take half-decants with partial refunds in order to get some smellies to everyone who wanted them; ordering another bottle would make things quite late at this point. :( Crisis averted! Massive apologies for this, I suppose when ordering a hundred bottles at a time, something's bound to go awry some time. :/

In slightly better news, my calendar's finally clear until Christmas Eve proper, so time to finish grinding out decants. Oh, if only these had arrived two weeks earlier... :S

12/14: Got the two boxes yesterday -- they were in fact our Yules, and *everything* is here! :D

Now for the possibly ungood news: this being the verge of the holidays, I have a lot of real-world obligations in the days leading up to Christmas, and turnaround may be a bit slower than any of us would like. (Believe me, I don't want to have your stuff lingering here any more than you want to wait for it! XD) I don't expect to start shipping until next week, so delivery by Christmas is highly unlikely.

On the subject of shipping: if, for some reason, you'd like me not to ship before Christmas into the crazy mail scrum, let me know, and I'll wait on it :)

12/9: Got Order #1 in my hands, and 2 CnS's for Monday/Tuesday! They *should* be the yules, I think, but it's possible one of 'em is Phoenixes, we'll see! :)

11/16: A bit later than planned because of payments, but our last order is in! And now to wait :)

Update #2, 11/12: Our 2nd order's gone in! One more to go, either tomorrow or Monday, depending on when I get payments in. :) Last chance for add-ons! The bottles highlighted in red are iffy to go through, so if you might be interested in those, please consider signing on!

Update #1, 11/12: Unless there are a lot of requests, I won't be opening any further bottles. It's possible that at this point, any bottles with only 1 sign-up may get pulled, too :( I'll see what's left tonight -- gonna be out of town all day, so I'll reply to any comments this evening!

11/10: Our first order's been placed!


Wow! What an update :) I've been hoping and waiting for the Frankenstein series, and boy did the Lab deliver!

I plan to make 2-3 orders for this circle, depending on the total number of bottles needed, with the first order going in on Thursday night (the 10th) and the last on Sunday (the 13th). If you're interested in Oak Moon, please let me know, even if you aren't decided on anything else yet. XD


The Goods
Oak Moon
$3.75/decant

Yule 2011
$3.75/decant
$93.00 fullset (27 scents)

Frankenstein
$3.75/decant
$79.50 fullset (23 scents)

The Little Match Girl
$3.75/decant
$24.00 fullset (7 scents)

Additional Notes:
* Since this release is so very huge, bottles without enough interest (at least 2 full decants) may be cut from the order. :( The Frankensteins may have a better chance of going through, even without a lot of interest. Just sayin'. (I had this up in my placeholder notes and accidentally removed it when I made the "real" post...D'oh.)
* Add-ons from the Lab are welcome. I do ask for the 2.9% (3.9% international) PP fee on the extra stuff, though :3
* Assuming there will be a BPTP perfume release, this stuff can be combined with other decant circles. XD
* You can also combine shipping with stuff from my sales page!
