Hello beautiful souls! 🌞🌷
We hope this little note finds you safe & sound. We are still running at full speed here at ShaynaMade. Well, maybe 90% speed, as our team members prep and deal with creating new "normals" during this season of staycationing. 🏡💞 Please, pretty pretty please be PATIENT and KIND and COMPASSIONATE toward all during this time. You should do this alllllllllllllll the time anyway, but now is an optimal time to practice these beautiful virtues! 🎉 Below are some things to do during your #SLAYcation and below that is a beautiful poem for you and more info on our response to Covid-19.
We hope these words will bring some happiness and hope to your day. And know we are indeed cheering you on and praying for healing across our most beautiful, magical globe. 🌍🌎🌏
~ With much love from the ShaynaMade team
Our Covid-19 Response
Given the current situation with COVID-19, we are taking precautionary steps to minimize its impact in the community. We are following the guidance of global health experts at the World Health Organization (WHO) and U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
Our design & management team are all snuggled up in their homes for the forseeable future ~ social distancing as much as humanly possible. Thankfully, we are able to accomplish all design work remotely from our homes. We are all working hard to meet original deadlines, but please understand that there may be unexpected delays with production time and also shipping ~ especially as delivery drivers across the nation have increased work loads. 🚚📦
And have no fear! Even if production & shipping are slower than normal (or even halt temporarily), we can most definitely still take care of all your design work now so that it will be at the front of the production line when things start rolling at full speed.
May we all be understanding that this is a stressful and heartbreaking time for many around the whole wide world. 🙏💕

Things to do while social distancing and SLAYcationing!
📚 Read those books that have been collecting dust.
☕ Have tea time every day! (Seriously, herbs are powerful for boosting your immune system).
👩💻 Start or add to your blog! Update your website! Start a YouTube Channel!
📆 Schedule Facebook posts for the future.
🥳 Order new marketing materials. We've got lots to choose from of course. Business Cards, Enamel Pins, Stickers, Booth Display items, etc. This way you can hit the ground running once healing comes.
💻 Advance your skills with online training (there are sooooo many options).
🎶 Practice an instrument or drawing skills. There are countless fun tutorials on YouTube! I taught myself how to crochet via YouTube 12 years ago. Shawn Durington is posting some fun Daily Drawing Lessons on his YouTube channel.
👯♀️ Do a 30 minute at-home routine each day. I personally love the @toneitup girls and they are giving everyone 30 days free access to their app right now.
A poem for you! 💕💖
A poem from one of Shayna's absolute favorite books as a child. (I read it multiple times and will likely be re-reading it within the next week. Still one of my favorites to this day.) 📚
My life is but a weaving
Between my God and me.
I cannot choose the colors
He weaveth steadily.
Oft’ times He weaveth sorrow;
And I in foolish pride
Forget He sees the upper
And I the underside.
Not ’til the loom is silent
And the shuttles cease to fly
Will God unroll the canvas
And reveal the reason why.
The dark threads are as needful
In the weaver’s skillful hand
As the threads of gold and silver
In the pattern He has planned
He knows, He loves, He cares;
Nothing this truth can dim.
He gives the very best to those
Who leave the choice to Him.
