Vote for my Stumpie & Friends design on Threadless!

I did this design last year and I really want to get it printed but since there are 6 colors I just couldn't justify the costs of printing it as it would affect the final price you pay for the shirt too much. I decided to wait to see if maybe I could find a printer who would do it for a lower price but it's been months and I haven't found anyone better. So, in my final attempt to get this design printed (because I think it would be so sweet on a shirt) I have submitted it to threadless.

Please click here to vote for me! It only takes a few seconds to sign up and if you click on the I'd buy as a tee or a print boxes on the side it helps too!
Thanks :D

Shop survey and a giveaway!

I totally fudged the survey link in my newsletter so I thought I'd post up my message here too!

I'm working on making the shop/website better so help me out! Just copy and paste this SHOP SURVEY into an email, fill it out and send it to with "shop survey" in the subject line. I know, it's kind of long and detailed but if it isn't then how will I make changes for the better? :)

In return for your time, I will enter you in a draw for a chance at winning 1 of 5 cute mystery boxes. The mystery boxes could be filled with any of the jewelry, accessories, paper goods or charms that are in my shop and even contain some items that aren't available in my shop! I may giveaway more boxes depending on how many responses I get so help spread the word! I will take entries until April 30th and then draw the 5 (or more) winners and announce them on my blog and in this newsletter.

Spring Cleaning!

Well, sort of... I noticed that I have bits of this and that in my Etsy shop that don't really fit in with shop anymore so I have decided that at the end of April I will be pulling them and they will no longer be available for sale. There are some items that have a lot of hearts on them so I am giving you fair warning! Stop by and take a peek to see if there is anything that suits you before it's gone for good! They are all in the Last Chance section.

Stamp it!

At long last, my stamps have arrived! Stop by the webshop and check them out!

For those of you who don't know, I'm a huge hockey fan! I've already got play offs on my mind even though there are still 5 games left in the regular season! Anyways, I can't seem to stop thinking about it because both teams I am cheering for have cinched spots again this year. Vancouver (my home team) and Pittsburgh (my favorite team) :D

Now I'm not sure if you remember but last year during the Pens play off run I did this cute penguin illustration to show my love.

And so with play offs and Earth Day and penguins being my favorite animal, I wanted to revamp that little penguin illustration and make it even cuter. lol is that possible? I say yes! Now who want's to see this design on a tank top? or a tee? I haven't attempted to print multi-colors in a while but I'm sure this one is simple enough to do.
P.S. Yes, I know Pittsburgh doesn't need any saving :)

pack it up.

So I bought a whole ream (400+ sheets) of purple tissue paper. Not really sure what drove me to do that but at least my clothing orders are packaged all nice and pretty now :)
