    Hi there! When Merbella posted that they had a spot open for a tail order recently, I jumped on the chance....I've wanted one for a while! I have paid IN FULL with a rush order fee which guarantees my tail to be made in 60-90 days according to the email agreement. But now I've read this thread and I am worried! Especially since I've emailed Raven several times in the last week and have not heard back from her. I do not want to be a pestering customer, but I am a business owner myself. And when someone invests that much money with you, it is good practice to at least shoot a quick email back saying "hey, got your email....busy and will get back with you asap." Because now I am stressing that I haven't heard back after submitting several questions and tail color info sheet. anyway...I see you guys say that she is busy and will get to you when she gets to you, I suppose. Not sure if I am reassured by that or not.

    Her work is freaking amazing though....I'm impatient because I want it right now!!! LOL

    if you paid the rush fee, then you get it rushed. people here didn't. But even while paying a rush fee, she starts your tail when she starts it

    Yea, don't worry. I sent my tail back for changes and paid the rush fee. I paid to have my done within 1 month. And didn't hear from her pretty much the entire time, which is normal for Raven, she contacts you when she has updates or photos for you.
    She got my tail back to me by the deadline date I gave her

    You got a rush order? Lucky you! When I got in for my order they did not accept rush orders for that time.

    Does Raven have anyone helping her yet? Last I heard it was just her, and she's so popular, I can't imagine staying sane taking on that many orders alone. Especially, with tails which each require weeks of labor.

    Yikes, that'd be super stressful. Do you know if she's saving up to hire someone else on, or does she just simply prefer to work alone/with her husband? As an artist, I know what that's like.

    I think she's tried in the past but it didn't work out.

    That's sad. Well, her tails always appear to be more than worth the wait.

    I'm at 5-6 more months before I receive mine.
    I'd love to get some update photos but not sure if that will happen or not.

    If you've still got 5-6 months there is a good chance she hasn't even started your tail yet so it may just be a case of no photos to share ^_^

    And thats what I was thinking lol
    I know she is a really, really busy and all and hate to message her randomly. Even though I've never worked with her before I trust her enough to never feel like I'm getting ripped off from past reviews I've read. Either way I have the entire Winter to wait and I know for fact I'll have my tail before Spring even hits! I guess my excitement is getting a hold of me XD

    Well, we'll put it this way, I know Mermaid Airel Starfish (who's on day 250 or something?) Just had her tail started. So that may give you a little insight as to how long you have to wait before yours is started

    To give you another example. I am on day 341 and my tail was started at the end of Feb/beginning of March. I just received my first update since then on the 6th of this month(June) saying my tail was built(not painted) and Raven was going to be pulling the fins from the mold and to expect pictures soon. Still waiting on pictures. I figure I'll see progress pictures in a week or two. Hope this helps give you an idea of what to expect. The waiting is the hardest, but so so worth it!
