Stamp designs

So, here are the first set of rubber stamp designs I want to do. They feature my forest friends collection. What do you think? Yes or no? Which of my other designs would you like to see as stamps?

Okay, I lied.

I know I promised printables in the shop for January but... after having a lot of printer issues and hearing from people who have test printed some designs for me, I have decided based on their feedback that it's best not to offer printables. I can imagine all the people complaining about the files not printing out right because they don't know how to use their printer settings. *ahh* let's save us all a big headache. Yes? *nods*

That being said, the "printables" section will be replaced by "stamps" as soon as I get over this horrible ear infection.

OMG it's a bag!

Okay, so you all know that I've been working on my handbag collection for almost.... FOREVER. It's because I am a perfectionist.. and it takes me forever to draft a pattern that works. I will have some in the shop soon. Here's one of my designs :) Any ideas what I should call it?

I'm off to the fabric store now because I need more. lol

Last chance!

At the end of January I will be removing all the sale items that are currently in my Etsy shop. They are marked with a red sale badge so you can find them easily. Please stop by and take a look to see if there is anything you would like because once I take them off the site they will be gone forever and I will not be taking custom orders for them.

Wishing I was having this for dinner!

I mentioned a few weeks ago that I got the PW cookbook  as a Christmas gift right? It's packed with super simple and super yummy dishes. On New Years Eve, I made this yummy Chicken Spaghetti casserole and now I want more. Too bad I'm out of cheese. :(

Pencil Holder

Made myself a pencil holder! Before this, I had all these pens and pencils and things scattered all over my desk. Would you like to see pencil holders in the shop?

New Business Card Design

I'm running a bit low on business cards so I thought I'd design a new one to match the new website. They are going to be double-sided. Feedback is welcome :)

The Tiny Fig's January Design Challenge

I wanted to try something new this year and so I came up with the idea to do a series of design challenges. Here's the details for the first one!

Go to the new Freebies section of my website and download the box template I just uploaded. The file contains 3 pages: an instruction page, a blank template and a printable orange and pink heart box template (my gift to you) as shown above. Your challenge is to design a Valentine's Day themed box using the blank template provided. That's it. You can use any materials you want (fabric, glitter, glue, paper, pipe cleaners, etc...) and you can design it in a graphics program if you like then print it out and assemble. When you're done, just email me at with a photo of it using the subject line: "January Design Challenge". You may submit one design per person and anyone can enter so tell your friends or make it a weekend project with the kids! You have until January 31st to email me a submission. On Feb 1st I will sort through the entries, pick my favorite and announce the winner on my blog. The winner will receive a $20 gift certificate for my shop.

- Print page 1 if you want to use your own paper for the box. Just cut and trace it to the paper of your choice. Then cut, score and assemble.
- Print page 2 if you what to draw directly on the blank template, glue things on it, decoupage it, or whatever. Then cut, score and assemble.
- Print page 3 if you just need a box to use for gift giving :)

Happy New Year!

(Photo: Me & my sister.  People always say we look like twins..... err... I think not.)

I'm not really good with keeping resolutions but the main thing I want to do this year is take care of myself and stay as healthy as possible.

As for business, there are going to be a lot of changes and additions to The Tiny Fig. You'll see what I mean over the next few weeks. Happy 2010 everyone!
