**Since this is a Made to Order item, that means these are not ready to ship right away! I create each piece as the orders come in, and the processing time depends on the order volume I receive. However, I plan to keep the processing time for these pieces as close to my usual 1-3 weeks as possible! That being said, if you intend on giving this item as a gift please be sure to order well ahead of time or email me ~firstname.lastname@example.org~ in regards to possibly putting a rush on your order. (However, please don't expect unreasonable times like next day shipping).
