Warning! Site updates ahead!

It's that time of year for Webmistress Ming (author Cynthia's techie alter-ego!) and the Organized Christmas Elves. During the hottest days of summer, we hunker down under the air conditioning, and spruce up our site for the coming holiday season.

During the next couple of weeks, expect a few loose ends around the site. Behind the scenes, Ming will be updating forms and features--and sometimes, the process can get a bit messy.

We'll do our best to get all spiffed and ready as quickly as possible. But until then, bear with us!
