It seems when running a web shop, you should let your web hosting service have an email address that you use on a regular basis. Not the email address you use when you sign up for things that you know will make you be the recipient of profuse amounts of junk mail - or, you will not see the 30 day notice regarding the expiration of your web hosting service. Neither will you see the 15 day notice, the 7 day notice or the 2 day notice...letting you know your web hosting is about to expire.
Had it not been for a wonderful customer (thanks Heather!), I would not have known the website was down. But, it has been addressed, I renewed the site and it should be back up and running soon. Sorry for any confusion when you see the "Holly Bits or Something blank generic page" that comes up when a website has lost its hosting.
In the meantime, there's always our shops on Etsy and Supermarket. Though, we prefer the streamlined nature of our website...so, when it's all up and running again...visit us there!
***UPDATE*** we're back up and running...whew! moopshop.com - woo!
