Scrap Orchard Update - "Desperately Seeking Bandwidth"

Ok...it has been a LOOOOOOONNNNGGG day for me ladies! LOL and I am exhausted! But I wanted to take just a second to let you all know that we've paid the big bucks to move our little orchard to a bigger and better "field"! LOL

The new hosts assures us that WE didn't break the site... YOU ALL DID!!! LOL and he is making it his job to make sure that you guys won't be able to do that again!!!

Unfortunately the job of moving to a new server is a big one and our poor Webmistress, Mel as well as Kami, Tammy, Kim and I are working day and night to make sure that the Orchard is back up and running as SOOON as we can possibly get it! ( I hate to set a firm date and time, but we're HOPING that maybe by LATE tonight or Thursday???)

Either option is too long! And you would think that THIS would mean that things could slow down enough for me to make you guys a freebee, but NO...just more work answering emails and stuff! LOL

But I do know that we're working hard on making you all an "I'm so sorry that you came to visit us and we were gone!" gift! LOL

When I know more, I'll post more...in the meantime THANK you guys for the positive comments and smiles you're sending my way!! I pass them on to the other girls and they make us all smile that you're not all mad and cranky! LOL

Aloha my dear blog friends!!

It's amazing how much I miss you guys but I can understand. That's exciting that we could break it in about a week. We must have all been really creative. I know I've had fun with all the challenges and look forward to see you guys back up and running. Thanks Shauna for the update since I'm here everyday as well. Hopefully your mattress has at least cooperated and given you a bit of rest in the middle of all this.

Well first I guess congratulations are in order for having such a wildly successful site. We miss you (all) terribly but we all understand, it's just the price we pay for breaking your site (sigh....) LOL. Hang in there ladies, and we'll see you soon :)

Tami said...

Sorry that we broke your site! LOL! I'll be waiting patiently until you guys get it back up! Thanks for all the time and effort you are putting into it! See you soon!

I wish y'all the best! It is frustrating when things don't work the way we want them to or the way they should, but I think we've all "been there, done that" - so we understand. (Especially when things happen that are just not in your control!) It's a good thing to have soooo many people wanting to join Scrap Orchard that the site got flooded & shut down!! Kind of like when you need a belt to hold up your pants because the pants are now too big - annoying but happy at the same time!! LOL!!

Hey, cranky is my middle name... well it's actually Sue, but cranky is more appropriate! However, I'm sure not cranky at you guys! Maybe my blood sugar is low... Anyway, I think it's awesome that you actually have to upgrade so quickly. That's got to be some sort of record. Looking forward to your return.xoxoxo

Melissa said...

Thank you for all you do for us. You're incredibly talented so it's exciting to see what you do next and the scrap orchard is no different. Keep up the good work and I'll try to be a little more gentle with the site next time! :)
Cheers!

Hang in there! It is amazing how QUICK you guys took off and how wonderfully (and wildly apparently) successful you are! We can't wait for you to be back!

I miss the orchard, but I am thrilled to hear that it will be back soon! I am so happy for you though...I guess us breaking the site is pretty cool! I hope to see you soon at the orchard!

Thanks for the update and like I said yesterday good things are worth waiting for.
Was that a challenge about us NOT being able to break the new host.....nah it wouldn't be would it?!
Keep smiling and know you have a whole lot of support out there.

Don't you know that the U.S.D.A. recommends between 2 and 4 servings of fruit per day ????
OF COURSE we will all be waiting for the orchard to reopen !!!
You want us all healthy, right ???
LOL

Yipeeeee! I'm so excited, I just went to scraporchard dot com and there was a big beautifulapple tree and a Scrap Orchard coming soon message! Oooooh, I can't wait. I'm anxious to get back to harvesting the crops! :) Yay!!!

Fotomum said...

DITTO to what everyone else has said. Stop take a breath . . . now smile. We all love ya's and we'll be here when you get back!!!

Ms. Sanders said...

You are so kind for apologizing for something we did! Don't think of it as a set back--think of it as proof that your designs are immensely popular! In that light, it's almost like an award! Congratulations on exceeding your bandwidth limit!! Yay!
