We're BACK AT IT! Doodling and getting to commissions again. This week has given way to one and a half doodle squigs. So glad to be back on the bandwagon. We got some really great news about expanding our shop and services too! This segment was a little late because we had a family emergency to deal with on Friday, and didn't get a chance to publish our weekly post that day. Here's your weekly segment this Monday afternoon.
Now that we're all settled into our new house we've begun doing our monthly doodles again! We debuted this little guy last week. Leaftailed geckos are one of my favorite geckos to look at because they are just beautiful. It's stunning how leaf-like they look! We'll do more color forms of these in the future
Doodles in the Works
We're currently drawing some commissions that are going to be used for one of the greatest herp societies in the country. As we release those, we'll let you know more about the society and all the awesome work that they do for reptiles and education.
While we're not doing commissions, though we do doodle squigs for our shop. Right now we're working on a blue tongued skink! He's turning out pretty awesome but is on hold until we're complete with the monthly commissions scheduled for the month of June. What do you think about him so far?
We're also looking for MORE REQUESTS! We're going to be able to debut them faster, so we need more feedback from you on what you want to see!
Sticker Debut Schedule for June-CHANGED
We are sad to say that our June debuted stickers are going to be put on hold for just a little bit. No worries though. This is great great GREAT news for our shop! The reason being: we just expanded to a full-on print shop!
We're going to be printing any and all designs we doodle from our own home with a great machine that prints our stickers onto vinyl and then we can cut them out professionally with the vinyl cutter. This means we can doodle one, and print it minutes after the final drawing is finished. No more waiting three weeks for an item to get printed. They'll be available in shop much quicker and printed to-order! The inks are still eco-friendly and the vinyl a great quality vinyl. We'll be able to print up to 1300 DPI so the quality will never be compromised! A very great deal for us and equally awesome for you!
We are also going to be offering print services for you, too! So if you have any artwork that you'd like to get printed onto stickers, matte wall decals, vinyl woven wall decals, static clings, or really ANYTHING we can do it! Business cards? We've got it! T-shirt heat transfers? We've got it! We print in high quality CMYK and White printing to meet any of your business or personal needs! Once all our equipment gets here we'll alert you and you can order any sticker design our shop, so long as it's not a limited edition sticker.
Mini sticker sets will begin to be printed more easily now and in stock once more.

Donation for USARK Done!
The week of June 1st-8th we held a fundraiser for USARK. It was pretty successful and we donated 10% of all the sales of our shop to USARK. Thank you USARK for all your hard work for us, and THANK YOU everyone for participating in the fundraiser! We will soon have some stickers in-shop permanently that will have all proceeds donated to USARK at any given time.
The Sticky Situation Project Quilt
Every week this quilt gets closer and closer to completion. We're almost there! These designs have been finished by Seri the last week and are ready to be stitched onto the quilt. More are coming, we're almost done! After we're all done we'll begin selling raffle tickets and all the proceeds will be donated to USARK. Let's get the word out as much as possible since we're SO CLOSE to finishing!
