Product Sneak Peek Teaser: What's that?

Hmm, a teaser. I wonder what it is?

Yep....calendars! I Have three different designs I've finished the past few weeks, and I can't wait to list them. Get ready for a super top secret sneak peak at what you can look forward to being listed in this coming week:

twelve months of individually illustrated pictures on 5.5x8.5 card stock. All of the pictures featured are of the quilt design. (I didn't like the number font as shown in the first picture, so that will change. Posted pictures will reflect the change). There are others that should be popping up in my shop as well - but I want those to remain a secret until they are revealed. I think everyone will be pleased. :)

On top of this, I'd also like to announce that starting in February I'll start a monthly blog series called Etsy Crush - the shops that I have bought from or would love to buy from. So keep an eye out for those posts!

I see a few of you are interested in a review of Anticraft. You are correct when you say this does not sound like your average craft book- part of the reason I love it! But since it does contain designs, I would like to try a few of at least the basic stitches before completing my review. Stay tuned for that.

I think February will be an exciting month for Turtlebug Goods. Do you guys have anything planned for next month?

Now Reading: The Anticraft

So I found this awesome book at a very nice price in an Etsy shop, and it came in a couple days ago. I can't wait to get into it - from what I've read its fascinating. I hope to post a review after I've finished reading it, or even better after I've tried some of the crafts.

Have you read this book? What did you think of it?

If you're interested in this book, you can find it on Amazon here.

Happy New Year!

Dear friends and fans,

Thanks for your support this past year :) I look forward to having another productive and exciting year to design cards and content for you.

Over the next few weeks, you'll see some new designs with cupcakes, chocolates, and hearts. Know what that means? It is almost Valentine's Day! As such, some of my Christmas cards are on clearance. I hope you check them out.

Once again, thanks for making my reopening so successful. Happy new year!
PS: We made some cookies last night. Go ahead and take one.
