A Lottie Going On

Hey friends! Hope this past weekend was a well rested one for you! It was a bustling one for me. First, thanks to Angela and Raven for tossing me a lifesaver in the whirlpool of rubber! I super appreciate it! =) If you haven't noticed, I listed the upcoming Farmers Market on the left hand side of the blog so that you will never miss it again. lol! Oh and before I forget:

WINNER of a Month FREE SHIPPING is: JENNIFER CR!
Send me an email to claim your prize!

Since we don't have a release on the 15th this month, we do have something exciting coming up on that day. After month and months of pain and agony, we will have a new shop site up! Yes! Not that there was anything wrong with the current one, I just wanted to upgrade to some useful features and it is a little more efficient in regards to uploading new product and etc. In the new site, you can create an account, track your order history, have a wishlist, AND it will also include all your digital downloads so if your computer dies (again!) you'll always have it in your account! Yippee! You will also be able to sign up for our new and upcoming newsletter! We are scheduled to send out our first e-newsletter Sept 15th and it will include spiffy features, updates, and monthly specials for our subscribers. The newsletter subscription is different from blog subscription so you will have to go to the new store in order to get on that list.

Let's see... what else is going on... oh of course new designs and such. I will be adding new styles to the store that is very different from our lovable Anya. A new series that I will be working on are these:


Lottie


Izzy


Madelynn

And here are a couple of cards our super duper talented VP Jessica did with these upcoming images! Aren't they just fab?!







So what do you think? Your feedback is very important to me. Thanks for dropping by today and hope lots of smiles rain down on you!

Today's question is: Is TGF doing our job to keep smiles on your faces? What more can we do to up it a bit?

Big Hugs, Naoual.

Lilian said...

The new shop sounds awesome! WIll it store our previous digi purchases? I like Islander girl's idea of gift cards... maybe each member can have a wishlist and anyone can send gifts by buying the item/s (rubber, digis or papers) via their wishlist? I hope I made sense... make a poll!! lol!

PaperCrafty said...

Love the new girls!!

Amy said...

The new updates to the store sound fantastic! I can't wait!

And the new girlies are cute but I have to say that the Anyas/Ians/Miss Anyas and Wild Sprouts still have my heart, so I hope we have many more of them to come in the new store too. :)

JenRaff said...

Wow! The new shop sounds incredible! I love the idea of having the digi's stored. I have thought before about what I would do if this computer dies or I get my own little laptop someday.
I can't think of anything right off the bat that would be better than what your doing -- your paper lines are so great. Maybe you could come up with some for your teen Anyas. How about some teen Ians? Just don't ever stop making the Anya's and Ian's and I will be happy with whatever you add!
Love the new images -- especially Izzy. She is beautiful!

Lelia said...

O-M-G!!! These are super cute! I can't wait to get my hands on them!!! EEEP! TGF definitely made me smile today!

Lelia

Katie K said...

OMG, these images are just adorable. Love everything you create, they are one of a kind.

Chris said...

Your new website sounds great! Love that you are adding a wish list feature. I would also love to see gift certificates sometime - they would make nice RAKs for stamping challenges on other sites. Oh, and your new line is oh so cute!

Rachel said...

Love Madelynn, she's a new fave!

I would love a "plain" Ian stamp where he's not dressed up as anything, just standing there wearing a regular outfit looking cute :) That would be fantastic but he's so cute!

donna mikasa said...

The new designs are so adorable! Looking forward to seeing them in the store.

Offering gift certificates to the Farm would be great. Would make life a lot easier and shopping for friends a lot more fun!

Snail Mail Creations said...

Great Stamps Marie!
TGF Always has me smiling no matter what! Cant wait for the changes, sounds exciting!

I agree with OhioMary.. I'd LOVE to see some background stamps, and scene building stamps.

Gift cards would be fab too! My husband would never have to leave the house to find me a gift ever again :D

Expressions of a Creative Mind said...

So loving this new line!!!! I can't wait for it to come out

Lisa Atha said...

Marie,

The new style is cute, but if I had to be honest, I like the Anya style much much better. I hope we haven't seen the last of her and her friends. After reading the other comments, I see that I am only one of about two people who feel that way. Bummer.

I can't wait to see those cute kitty designs that you said you were working on. I would also like to see a new flower set, and maybe some zoo animals (in the old style of course.

Lisa Atha

JenniferCR said...
