I’ve reopened the shop earlier than planned for of financial reasons. I will still be checking messages on a once-a-week basis for a while longer to keep my stress down, but it will remain open at least until mid-December.
We have closed the online shop for a month or so to give Shy a bit of a break. All active orders we have will be fulfilled, including the preorders for pencil cases, and IndieGoGo rewards which will be going out in mid-September.
If you have any questions about an order you’re placed, please contact us on Etsy.
3 Big IndieGoGo Updates!
1. Mars goes in for surgery tomorrow!
She’s going to get all her teeth pulled, and also a lump (which we hope is just a cyst @ m @;;) removed from her chest. The vet has been nice enough to only charge for the removal of the lump, not the diagnosis if it seems to be something more than a cyst!
We were only able to get her into surgery so soon because of all the contributions to our IndieGoGo, so we’re extraordinarily grateful! The vet will be putting us on a payment plan so long as we can pay for the first half right away, which we now can! I will be adding updates as she recovers.
2. Shy’s medical updates.
My gallbladder is malfunctioning, so surgery is inevitable. Now it’s just trying to figure out how soon that might be. Apparently, we caught it in the early stages (not that it’s felt like “early stages”, thought I was dying @ n @), so I’m seeing a specialist to try and decide when to go through with removal. Also, I’ve been diagnosed with hypothyroidism. This explains a lot of problems I’ve had throughout my life, so it’s a relief to have the some answers (and meds!!). Now it’s just up to meds and saving up for surgery!
3. The roof is finally scheduled to be fixed! We wouldn’t have been able to manage the downpayment for the work if not for the campaign, and without the downpayment we couldn’t have scheduled the repairs. This upcoming monday, the roof will finally be repaired!
Thanks again to every single one of you who’s contributed and reblogged/retweeted the IGG. We will starting to send out the perks next week!
Thanks to all of you who have contributed or signal boosted. This crazy summer has been made smoother thanks to every one of you <333
Mars is home and seems happier already (or maybe just doped up…)! Her teeth really must have been bothering her, poor baby. The surgery went perfectly, and they’ve sent the cyst off for testing. She’s been sleeping on my desk all night ahhhh bb Marzipan <3
Recently, Emily was sweet enough to help us figure out how to make small bags! We’ve ordered a starting batch to test the waters with selling them, so here are preorders!
Bags are 5 x 8 inches, printed on durable 600d polyester fabric with a zipper enclosure, and smaller zippered pouch inside.
Preorders: $12, will be open for 2 weeks, and include a random free charm! After preorders, the charm will no longer be included, and prices may rise to $13-15 depending on demand.
Giveaway Rules: reblog up to 2 times. Two winners will be picked at random all rebloggers on August the 31st, at 9:00pm EST. Winners will given one bag of their choice (without charm).
ART THEFT ALERT!!!
We were recently alerted the site, osomwear, was selling one of Coey’s Sherlock pieces ( 1 & 2 ) as a shirt, which we did not give permission for them to reproduce or sell.
We have contacted the site via email with a cease and desist, and will be checking back with it later.
However, the site seems to sell a lot of (what looks to be) fanwork, and given the use of Coey’s work without permissions, I’m suspecting there’s more art theft at work here.
Please take a look through the site’s inventory and contact the artist(s) of any piece(s) you may recognise. DO NOT contact osomwear; contact the artist and allow them to handle any possible theft.
We will be at Otakon again this year! Tables E12&13 in the artist alley!
Provided we can afford to restock everything, we’ll have all our usual stuff; prints, books, tote bags, shirts, buttons.
Stop by and say hi ♥
(Thanks so much to every single one of you who’s already donated to our IGG, you are all so amazing we can’t believe it!! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥)
REMINDER! We’ll be at Otakons in the artist alley, tables E12 & 13!
