THANK ART it's Friday! Fridays come much too quickly around here!! Next week you should start seeing some work in progress stuff again! We totally got super busy last week and weren't even able to get you a weekly blog post! Dang! Moving and cleaning a big house tends to make one lose track of time! We're updating you this lovely Friday to catch you up on the last two weeks.
Last week we got a few new stickers in stock! A couple sand boas, a rainbow boa and a red eyed tree frog have all been added. Those rainbow boas have been excruciatingly popular with you all, and so we're glad that we got those in when we did. A big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Shelby Chibs Harris--who inspired me to get those rainbow boas up. We have more amphibians joining us in June. And July you should see some more geckos.
For months now you guys have been asking us for magnets. A few asked for some re-positionable stickers, as well. This month we were able to bring both of those items in stock for you. Any listing in our shop now has the option of sticker, wall decal (re-positionable sticker) or a magnet. These items are currently cut out by hand, but by the end of summer we hope to be able to provide you with magnets and wall decals that are cut professionally just like our vinyl decal stickers. We're going to be adding new items in the next few weeks, too so keep an eye out for some really awesome things in stock.
Magnets are a great item if you want to jazz up your refrigerators, cars or even your fridge-turned-incubator. We also love our restickable wall decals! Stick them once, twice, fifty times! They won't lose their stickiness unless the sticker gets dirty. Great for kids, too who love stickers, but also love to put them on walls, doors, closets, and on themselves.
Updates on the Quilt
Seri is seriously the most amazing person I know. I'd bet money on it. The quilt is looking so amazing. I don't even know how she does it. I love getting sneak peeks of it, and enjoy seeing everyone's reactions, too once she posts them to the fundraiser Facebook page The Sticky Situation Project. I mean, LOOK at these blocks. They are amazing!
I had to share my ultimate favorite, of course, the chinese cave gecko. I have a few cave geckos and as far as geckos go, the caves are my passion. The bright and purplish hue they have are going to look great on this quilt once all the stitching is done and in place.
The second one I wanted to share was the tokay gecko. I recently acquired a tokay gecko as a pet and I've pretty much fallen in love with him. They are really neat critters. Jason, my other half calls him the "Dr. Seuss Gecko". They totally do look like an animal right out of the Dr. Seuss books! Even in person.
Naming Our Stickers
In the next few weeks we want to hear from you! We'll be posting up little contests for you to do to get our stickers named after your pets! Stay tuned for that! We'll post up more details on this contest soon on Facebook! Does one of our stickers look like yours? Comment here to tell us about him or her! We'd love to see some pictures, too so share pictures of your pets on our Facebook Page! :)
