here are 2 writings that we put up recently on fetlife …. sad news but not the end of the story … so this is how it is for the near future at least …
my announcement …
so its been a tough year
Very very tough
but I’m still here (much to the disappointment of some)
and I am not going anywhere fast
This year has been rough starting with all the hassle of me doing what I thought was the right thing.. (I still think it was) and all the backlash from that.. almost cost me everything including my mind.
This has had a knock on effect mega stress in my relationship with the dragon which has all fallen apart
BUT I am still here
Impact-toys has had its creations slashed to what I make now
but I am still here
The year isnt over yet but I am so looking forward to closing this one off
the last week has been heart breakingly rough
Its by no means the end once I am a bit more settled I will start making floggers again probably not on the scale Az was doing but ill make a few here and there for sets etc
I am going to start what I have been saying for ages and play with some Kip whips
so onwards and upwards
I would like to thank everyone for their support over the last year its been rough but made bearable by the support of others
officially the order book close yesterday for christmas orders
but I am going to extend it another week as I havent really been being attentive to the business this last week
so 9th Nov order book closes for pre christmas whips and devil tails and anything on the site
you can still use SANTA1 on www.impact-toys.com on matched pairs of whips for a whopping discount
you can still use GET10 on www.edgeplay.co.uk for 10% off your basket
if you cant decide what to get that special someone then why not get them some gift vouchers and let them decide they are available on both sites
I would like to once again thank everyone for their support over the last year
Especially Az (the dragon) who without her I would have probably lost my mind totally and the business
Love and Light
the dragons writing
To my friends, please read.
Today, Daz and I came to the agreement that I shall no longer be involved with Impact-Toys.com. My remaining commitment is to ensure that existing custom orders for floggers and dragons are fulfilled, and this shall be done in a timely manner as close as possible to the quoted waiting times. All Christmas orders will be sent out in time to go under the tree.
The remaining ‘Ready To Ship‘ items that are already made and ready for posting are still available on the website but no more floggers and dragons will be made for this purpose. We hope that these remaining items find new homes with those who will appreciate them – there is a little bit of our heart in each of them.
It has been a very difficult year for both of us and sadly this has taken it’s toll on our personal and professional relationship. After removing my collar in July, we continued to work together and maintain a friendship (and a certain romance) but we have decided that it is now better for both of us to go our separate ways.
As Daz says on the @Edgeplay_co_uk profile – a huge thank you to everyone who has supported us in this venture and as friends, there have been some wonderful times and those of you who have our toys, please cherish them 🙂
There is great sadness and grief here for something that was so important to both of us, and it is with love that I wish him the best for the future.
chokes me to read them now … but we go on
Az is finishing off her work book and may make a few on offs when she knows what materials she has left over
and I will probably still make the odd flogger or 2 in the future
I have to get my head around tidying up the website to take out the irrelevant sections, but for now I am concentrating on the plaiting and getting the workbook as small as possible so bear with me
its been a great couple of years
And we would like to thank everyone that has supported us
we hope your toys bring you many years of pleasure
not the end 😉
