This week has been a little bit slower on the update side than other weeks. We really don't have much to say! There haven't been any new doodles added this week, and no new stickers have come in yet. Hopefully next week we'll have some new stickers! What we have been busy with this week, though are the typical shop-like things. You know, the boring stuff like inventory and book keeping. We're also in the middle of a move, so a lot of our time is being used for packing and cleaning. Hoping to be moved in by the 25th.
As you can see, we did completely rebuild our website and changed hosts. The original website was a bit of a trial-and-error type of thing. We weren't really happy with the way the site looked and the slowness of the e-commerce shop so it wasn't worth it to us to stay with IndieMade. Not a lot of traffic was going to the shop there either. Now we're with Weebly! Where my other websites are as well. Love Weebly. Our new website is bright and pretty now. We hope that you like it! If you're ever looking for a great website hosting service, it's really tough to compare to the awesomeness that is Weebly.
On our Facebook page we currently have a little give-away contest going on. Once we reach 1000 likes we'll be giving away $10 in stickers! If you think that someone would like our stickers invite them to check out our page and let them know about the contest! :)
We LOVE giving away stickers. It makes us so happy to make you happy. Seeing your excitement makes everything about this shop a hundred gajillion times more awesome.
The expo last weekend was fun! Thank you all for coming and meeting me and also just visiting and leaving your awesome feedback! We also sold out of a few stickers. Wow! That's just insane! Haha. I suppose we'll have to get more of those popular stickers in-stock than we have been having. Namely the Panther Chameleons and Bearded Dragons. Also our Leucistic Axolotl nearly sold out. We have one left in shop! Very cool! Those should be back in stock in a couple weeks. We really weren't expecting them to be SO popular, but very glad that they were!
Updates on the Quilt
If you still don't know about this quilt, please go check out the page. Fundraising for USARK comes in many forms. This quilt is one of the many fundraising opportunities for the non-profit. It's a quilt being put together by the ever talented and amazing Seri Dukart. My artwork from the shop is going on it.
Last weeks' winner for the voting round was the Red Harlequin Crested Gecko. Won by a LONG shot! This week we're voting on leopard geckos and african fat tailed geckos, and it looks like the High Yellow Normal Leopard Gecko is winning. Go vote for your favorite if you haven't already! And thank you for the support during this project!
Thanks for reading and Happy Sticking!
