30 March 2014:
I’m still here. Still taking commissions.
I just thought I’d address something, for those that may be wondering about what it is I’m referring to when I say I’ve been having health issues.
I have Hashimoto’s Disease, as well as Degenerative Spinal Stenosis, and suffer Hypomanic Bipolar Cyclothymia. It is extremely difficult to maintain anything close to a routine, when your body throws your wild curve balls at random intervals, most of which incapacitate you, and the ones that don’t just irritate and frustrate you to tears.
I’ve got health care, now, and will be getting what I hope is continuous treatment and physical therapy, so the only direction to go from here is forward. And skyward. Because I think Jupiter requires a place to custom order Origami, don’t you?
Much love for all your support!

Life waits for no man, or woman.
Against my body and against my better judgment, I am re-opening my store, but solely for custom commissions, as of 17th Monday, on a first-come-first-serve basis, by Waitlist, as I can only guarantee 1 or 2 spots per month, depending on the size of the commission.
So, if there’s something you’ve been wanting to order, please message me. First two will be for the month of April, then May, and so on. So, the sooner you get on the list, the sooner you get your commission.

Late. I know. I thought I would be opening up shop at the beginning of March. Unfortunately, I am experiencing quite a few health issues, so I am unable to officially re-open and begin taking orders. I don’t want to give a tentative date of when I hope to open, because I can’t guarantee any time frame at the moment.
In the interim, I am making numerous plans and amassing a lot of new stock and products, to ensure that when I do open the shop, I will have many, many new things to choose from!
Thank you for your patience and support!

Happy Christmas, Everyone!
The good news is that Santa or rather, The Universe, has been very kind to me at the end of this year. I’ve been gifted with just about all the equipment, supplies, and materials necessary to implement the two (2) new product lines I wish to launch in 2014.
The not so great news is that no, these lines won’t be debuting in January, as I wanted them to, along with the website being migrated over to http://www.0rigamitsunami.com, since the holiday season was busier than expected, and took more out of me than I expected.
To have adequate time to dedicate to creating the new lines, I’ll be taking the month of January off, and potentially February as well. If you’re waiting on an order, don’t worry–I’ve not stopped working on existing commissions/orders/etc. If you’ve already spoken to me about custom pieces you would like, your pieces are still on my current To-Do-List, and I’ll be contacting you in the new year. But beyond that, the store is temporarily on hiatus.
If you were wanting to commission something, at this point in time, you’ll have to sign up to my Waiting List (must contact me at hgs0013 at gmail dot com), via subscribing for email updates, and you’ll be contacted as spots open up, in a first-come-first-served order.
Thank you all again for your patience, understanding, and support.

Belay the previous update. The site is now live, with worldwide shipping available!! Yes, it is expensive, because I can only do flat-rate shipping for international orders at this time. I hope I can change it in the future, but with how delicate my work is, I prefer to err on the side of caution, and go with larger boxes and more secure packaging materials, especially if something is traveling overseas!

Things are still somewhat under construction on the website, to enable worldwide shipping, but I wanted to take a moment to share this…
I just setup my photo printer, and did a test page. Custom, Whovian Origami is coming in 2014, for sure! I’m excited! 😀

I’ve edited the shop entries so that you can comment on the individual item posts. This way, if you’ve ordered the piece, you can leave a review there. If you have suggestions, you can post them directly in regard to the specific item. If you want to ask a question I may not have covered in the information breakdown, you can ask there.
I also updated the Photo Gallery, again, with more pictures.
13 December 2013:
I am currently re-doing the shipping and payment options, so if you attempt to process an order at this time, the amount(s) and options will NOT reflect what they should. Please refrain from attempting to purchase until I’ve made a new post, stating all updates are complete. You can still email me, to let me know what it is you’d like to custom order, and you will become next on the list, as the custom orders are on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Just an FYI, I have 4 orders in queue, so you would be added at #5. I can still generate a quote, but purchasing, paying, shipping, etc. are all being re-hauled to add additional options, shipping methods, and international shipping.
Thank you for your patience, support, and understanding. 🙂

I updated the Photo Gallery with a few new designs that aren’t already featured here. I haven’t yet added them to the listings of custom orders that can be purchased (though some of the pieces are available on Etsy), but they will be added, hopefully very soon.

As of January 1, 2014, this website will be transferred to http://www.0rigamiTsunami.com (spelled with a zero, not the letter “O”)!
