I'm so glad it's October! That last Florida summer was killing me x_x
Anyway, I have a small handful of things to touch on to get this month started
First off, I just recently had another giveaway thanks to you guys! I reached a pageview milestone and gave away a Nyan Cat quilt! Thank you so much to everyone that entered! If you missed the giveaway this time around, I hope you'll be there to catch the next one when I reach another milestone. Here's how my stats look:
DeviantArt pageviews: 125,180/150,000 = 83%
DeviantArt watchers: 4,399/5,000 = 88% Facebook
likes: 1,457/2,000 = 73% Tumblr
followers: 758/1,000 = 76% Wordpress
followers: 1,385/2,000 = 69%
I'm guessing that DeviantArt watchers will be my next kiriban, but it's hard to say! Either way, the faster those numbers go up the faster I'll hold another giveaway
Also, like with other months, I'm continuing my little Monthly Crafting Challenge
. This is where if you sign up for email updates to my blog
or send me photos of projects you've made with my patterns I'll send you free plush patterns in return ^-^
This month I'm giving away the pattern for this little plush shrimp tempura:
Nextly, I have a new book that's been released! It's all about duct tape projects, and includes 20 step-by-step projects and an idea gallery with 30+ more. It covers a lot of classic projects with a twist, as well as some you might not have expected, and a good handful of projects on working with washi tape, masking tape, and frog tape. I hope you'll give it a look if you think it would interest you!
And lastly, I have an update to my Etsy store! I'm working through my stash of minky fabrics and that means plushies! I'm going color by color and first up is lime green
I've made a collection of Puff Monster plushies as a collaboration with my good friend Bianca Roman-Stumpff, and some original designs as well. Check them out on Etsy if you're a fellow plush lover!
If life doesn't stop me, I'll be coming right back with more plushies in different colors -- next up is olive green and orange!
