I have carpal tunnel syndrome. I have spoken to my doctor, and I am having a bad flare since I did our lavender harvest and bundling this year. I am in wrist splints and on steroids to calm it down. However, I most likely will be having a consultation with a hand/wrist specialist and possible surgery if not controlled by other treatment. I do, however, need to rest my rest my wrists for the immediate future. So I am scaling back on floral designs.
For now, I have taken down our wedding bouquets except simple lavender and lavender and baby's breath bouquets - as those sell out I will also be removing those listings. Our more detailed wedding bouquets are no longer listed on our store website or Etsy. I will be finishing any orders for weddings I have already taken. So be assured if I have taken an order already, I will complete it.
My hope is to reintroduce the floral design after the holidays at the latest for spring weddings 2021, as I hope to have resolution to the wrist issue (surgery or not) by then.
Our shop will still provide lavender products, natural gifts and some new offerings as well. I will be expanding our floral/botanical candles with some new autum themed scents!
I can make bulk candles, lotions, and other products and have them last for quite awhile so it's easier to stock up and not be constantly remaking products weekly. Floral designs are bit more difficult. I have left up our container type arrangements (bud vases, mason jars, grater arrangements etc). Having the container is easier on my wrists to do designs. Also, usually these orders are for 1 or 2 at time while wedding parties are often much larger and more work (and more strain on my wrists).
I will revisit the floral bouquets again for next spring pending on my outcome with Carpal tunnel.
