Please accept my apologies for such a lag in between communications. As many of you know, the past year has been a series of personal & family obstacles for Maria and I but we tried to keep StopAndScrap rolling through it all. About 3 months ago, we realized that Maria would no longer be able to continue with StopAndScrap and it became a one-person company (me) working nights & weekends because I already have a full-time job. Unfortunately due to other issues, for the last 4-6 weeks even I have been unable to run StopAndScrap. We were able to have some family help ship out pending orders in that time, but all other aspects had to be "paused", for lack of a better term, due to my unavailability. You may have sent emails and not had a response, or you may still be waiting for a pre-order that we are late on. I very deeply apologize if you fall into either of these categories - I am working to catch up on everything now. Please continue to read the rest of the message.
