New from Muddle Designs!

Puppies!  Yes, you read that right.  We’ve had a litter of puppies appear in the Muddle studios!  And they’re looking for great homes.

Sadie adores playing fetch. The stick is thrown, she chases after it, brings it back, and it’s thrown again! What could be better! She is soft and cuddly, warm and welcoming! Ready for hours of play!

Dak loves to rough house. Jump, run, pounce, and play, he seems to never run out of energy, and is already ready to get dirty and dusty! He is soft and cuddly, warm and welcoming! Hope you can keep up!

Find them, and all their friends, on the Muddle Designs Etsy page!

Good news!  Thanks to all of you who donated and purchased from our store, we were able to afford to get our sewing machine cleaned, oiled, and tuned!

For those that don’t know, sewing machines that are under heavy use (such as making stuffed toys to sell) need to be maintained yearly.  Sadly, ours has not been to the Machine Doctor in a very long time.  But not anymore!  Because of your generosity and support of the handmade, our machine at Muddle Designs is now clean, and on its way back home!

Now we can continue to produce high quality one of a kind toys just for you!  Thank you all so much!  Our next task is to obtain proper paperwork to sell, in person, at a craft fair that is local to us!  That’s the next step on the way to selling at conventions and fairs near you.  Keep watching Muddle, we’re growing every day!

YouTube URL!

So, unfortunately, the YouTube URL “muddledesigns” was taken…

By me.  I took that years ago when I was young and dumb and didn’t realize that this would become my job.  So we had to throw in an S for the official YouTube.

http://www.youtube.com/user/muddlesdesigns

It is not “Muddle’s Designs.”  We’re not changing our name, no.  Just the YouTube name, because things happen.

Why is this important?  Because starting sometime this week (weather permitting) we’ll be uploading weekly to semi-weekly videos about crafting and projects!

Hello everyone!  Serif Balehawk from Muddle Designs here.  Just wanted to let you all know that there is a paypal button on our blog now!  If you feel like donating to our cause (getting Muddle Designs up and off the ground) please do so by clicking our button.  There is an option for a $1, $5, or $10 one-time donation.

It will be much appreciated if you help out!  We’re aiming to use this money to secure tables at farmer’s markets, conventions, and craft fairs!  We’re staying local for right now, but as we grow we hope to be at a convention near you with more goodies like Steampunk plushes, lip balms, jewelry, candles, soaps, and a slew of other ideas!

Don’t worry, there’s a prize for donating!  After checkout, the page will take you to a discount code for our Etsy store!  It’ll give you a code worth 20% off your next Etsy purchase at Muddle Designs!

The coupon code is good from now until May 5, 2014.  After that a new coupon will be available for you if another donation is made.

Have you signed up for our newsletter yet?  I hope you have!  Because our next newsletter is being worked on RIGHT NOW!  And in there will be a different coupon code specifically for subscribers!  So take a look, and see what you can get!

Keep an eye out, because we’ll be uploading some new products this week!  Bunnies in time for Easter, lip balms to keep you from getting chapped in this fresh spring weather, hand bound journals and sketch books, and a new jewelry listing that’ll be up right quick!

All this and more!  Stay tuned!
