Workin on a little something new for the shop
Just posted earlier this week, and we’ve already sold two sets! Inspired by a favorite ice cream flavor, this dishcloth set just looks delicious.
Stop by and check it out!
Report Cards: the bain of many teacher’s existance. Unfortunately, they are definately eating into my crafting time this term. The Frankenswiffer has been put on hold (much to the chagrin of my floors I’m sure) and new items are few and far between.
That said, I have embarked on a little sewing project for the shop: fabric flower brooches. My goal is to learn how to hand felt brooches but in the mean time, I have taken up making fabric brooches. They’re cute, they’re affordable, they multiply quickly, and will hopefully make a dent in the huge collection of vintage fabric making its way into my apartment.
We posted so many great new items that Etsy broke!
Unfortunately, Etsy is currently experiencing a minor technical difficulty and posting on the site is down. We still have a few new items to list, including the Lilac Dishcloth Set we featured in our last blog post, which we will be posting early this week once the site is back up and running. In the meantime, stop by the shop and check out what we got up before Etsy went down!
Yes, it’s only September, which means NaBloPoMo is two months away yet. But we’ve watched the summer slip by us, and if that’s any indication of how quickly the holidays are going to be creeping up us…we’d like to be prepared. So here are some things that Stagnant Gypsy has been putting together to help the shop be ready for the holidays:
On September 12, 2010 we will be adding a bunch of new items to the shop! This includes OOAK music magnets, new button sets, and new colour patterns for our existing items such as the fleur-de-lis magnets and dishcloth sets. We will also be online most of the day listing these items and promoting the shop, so visit us on Facebook or convo us at the shop and say hi! Below is a sneak peak photo of one of the new sets that will be available on the 12th!
Facebook 500 fan giveaway
We really appreciate the networking opportunities that come with having an online shop, and would like to thank those of you who have supported us over the past few months. Currently we are just shy of 400 Facebook fans, and have decided that when we reach 500 there will be a giveaway! Stay tuned for more information on the giveaway; we will provide readers with more information as we get closer to the 500 fan mark.
NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month)
We are up for the NaBloPoMo challenge! And a challenge it will be. Between keeping up with our studies and keeping the shop stocked with new (and staple) items, some days we will be hard pressed to squeeze out a blog post or two. That said, we enjoy reading the blogs of our favourite artists and crafters, and hope that participating in this event will allow us to reach out to readers and bloggers alike.
After a brief absence, Swiffer Covers are back in the shop! We’ve been working on a few new colors that match with some of our dishcloth and dryer sheet sets, such as the Grapefruit Swiffer Cover pictured above.
Check back often for new covers that co-ordinate with some of our most popular shop sets and for some entirely new ones!
