It's not you, Etsy, it's me. I just need some space.

I don't know how else to start this without just saying it:  I'm breaking up with you.  I'm sorry.  And it's not you, I swear, it's me.  Give me a chance to explain before you rip this apart.

Sometimes, there are things that are beyond your control, and in this instance, it's an outside influence.  I've lost four packages in the last month, and my soul just can't stand any more unhappiness and disappointment.  You see, C.P. seems to stand in our way.  He's what keeps us together, you see.  But, when he disappears in the middle of the summer, only to come back unreliable and untrustworthy over a month later has put a wedge between us, because without C.P., I can't fulfill your needs.  How sad, that someone with so much responsibility to so many people, the lifeline to so much progress can siphon the love of creativity out of so many passionate people like us?  What are we to do?

Well, I need to think about us, which means we're not going to see each other for a while.  Don't get me wrong - I'll stop by and say hello, see how you're doing, see what's new and all.  I mean, we have a lot of mutual friends, and we run in a lot of the same circles.  So, we're bound to run into each other!  The last thing I want to do is make anything weird, y'know.  I still care about you quite a bit.  Like I said, I just need to 'gather the troops' and figure out what's next for us.

Keep on doin' what you're doin', don't change a thing.  We can still be friends, right?

Hi Lana, and thank you!

It's so disappointing, really. It all stemmed from the postal strike, and it went downhill from there. It won't stop me from creating and sharing, though. I hope you find out what's happened to your packages!
