What’s In Store

Friday, September 10th, 2010

While our esteemed founder has been reluctantly resting (per doctor’s orders) and besides working my usual husbandly care and duties, I’ve also been tweaking the website as it is evolving over time. So I want to take this moment to illustrate what I’ve been doing under the hood and what our awesome supporters and friends can expect in the coming months as we sneak into Fall and Winter and the close of a nice 2010 season.

First off, I’ve been reorganizing our online store. If you haven’t noticed, there is now a product filter at the top of all shop pages to help you better navigate our extensive catalogue. I will be moving the checkout and policies text to the store as well and out of our primary navigation in the next week. Also, a big change that is coming this holiday season: we will be offering bundled sets of notecards that you can create yourself in place of the individual card sales. An exciting and neat feature we’re hoping to roll out after a little bit of testing and QA ;) making sure I don’t mess up the coding of the cart. These tweaks will certainly keep me busy this fall as we get closer and closer to holiday season. I’m also happy to annouce that we’ve placed some strategic advertising on crafty sites to keep spreading the word and raising awareness about endangered animals. In all – busy busy.

I’d also like to open up the floor to take any suggestions or requests that you’d like to see on our website to help us improve the entire experience. What would you like to see added? Changed? Send us a note as we’d love to hear your ideas!

Summer Shift

Thursday, June 24th, 2010

If you frequent this site or read our updates you may have noticed a shift in product direction. We get many questions from customers and friends about it and I think its a good time to be more public about our intentions. When I started this business over two years ago, my intent was to raise awareness for endangered animal conservation through my art. Somewhere along the way, it became pretty evident that I was being categorized as a t-shirt artist. No issues with that, however, I definitely didn’t want the art to take a back-seat to this. Fast forward to today and coupled with the rising costs of cotton and restrictions on selling shirts in popular artist vending venues has urged the shift in focus to the artwork.This does not mean the t-shirts are done. We still have quite a few in stock – but they will only be available in our online store (unless we note otherwise). All it means is that the focus of our product releases will be on the artwork. We will produce more shirts in the future, but in a more special and limited capacity.

Of course that also means that there must be some type of reorganization to our website in order. With that said, I am happy to annouce some exciting changes going forward. On July 1st, we will be showing off a re-organized shopping catalogue in our online store as well as rearranging our growing library of endangered animal facts and information. My hubby has been hard at work on all of this and I am sure it will be fantastic as we continue through the summer and beyond. In the meantime, feel free to drop by my Etsy shop for most of my latest pieces. Thank you all for your support and love.
