As with most Etsy sellers, I have a little dashboard that’s showing a bunch of undelivered packages. I’m better off than most – my last shipments went out on the 14th, with what I though was an extremely safe margin for First Class. I sent my gifts to my family at the same time, Priority. […]
I’ve vacation-mode’d the Etsy shop and local-pickup-only’d the self-hosted shop, because things that went out over a week ago are still in transit and family Christmas packages that I sent via Priority haven’t even left West Berlin (08091, not Germany) according to the scanners. I have more family packages that I unwisely hung onto expecting […]
Those Among Us crewmates (or imposters, I dunno) were supposed to be red, pink, and orange, but I continue to be Bad At Guessing Thread Appearance so I guess the last one is yellow. I was going to release this design today but in a weird coincidence Designs By Little Bee released a whole Among […]
Nobody in my family is getting dragons for Christmas, I just didn’t want the preview image to be a spoiler. That grouping shipped out yesterday as an order (gift-wrapped, so it’s someone’s Christmas present). I bought a pack of nice fluffy hand towels at Costco, since alas Bed Bath & Beyond no longer carries the […]
In this year of overwhelmed shipping systems, there’s a pretty good argument for importing Epiphany into the more-or-less-secular version of Christmas. (Bear with me!) Let’s give presents again on January 6. The “Twelve Days of Christmas,” retail version, start on the first of December so you can have a bunch of one-day specials that get […]
The last big drop of new shop items for the year has happened, with this motley crew of mochi dragons. I have a couple of minky colors to restock in my giant stack of almost-finished dragons, and I’ll try to honor any special requests (such as non-baby mochi dragons). Plus I have two velvet dragons […]
A sign of 2020: a tag search for “Christmas” and “design” and “pandemic” nets me more than one result. What with all the product photography, I regularly get messages from iCloud and Google telling me I’ve filled up my free storage. But I really like being able to ask Google for all the photographs of […]
A year or so ago, I stitched a couple of black background designs on felt rather than vinyl because the black vinyl was simply too glossy. It looked better, but I just wasn’t happy with the felt I had, so I mostly shelved those designs. But I got a tip about a kind of vinyl […]
Okay, since I forgot to post it yesterday (if you subscribed to the shop newsletter you got the code on Wednesday): BLACKFRIDAY2020. It’s good through the end of the month, but for the rest of today it’s just automatic on the whole shop. I’m just great at this whole marketing thing, huh?
Don’t look if you’re ordering one and want to be surprised!
