It’s never too early to think of Valentine’s Day gifts! Or rather, generalized gifts for that special someone (even if that means that special someone is yourself)! For my Etsy & Storenvy stores, I have a discount that you can use up until Valentine’s Day! Just enter the coupon code: VDAY14 and you will receive 28% off your purchase! (This can also be used for custom orders.)
Those who have bought plushies from me - I’d love to see you and your plushie that you requested / bought from me! Either one of you and the plush or just the plush alone… you know…Where it lives in your house (perhaps surrounded by other fanart items too?)!
I’m glad I could make everyone super happy with these babies and that you all enjoy them as much I do too. =)
I don’t have a whole lot of items listed on my Etsy account, THOUGHT I have a coupon code that can be used for black friday! Use the code: BLKFRDYSALE and you will receive 29% off your purchase! Only valid until Friday, so plan accordingly. ;) https://www.etsy.com/shop/rawien8706?ref=pr_shop_more
You guys do a lot of "big" cons, right? Don't you ever feel like you're missing out by being stationed in AA versus wandering around the con-center?
When I was younger I was way more into going to panels and walking around the convention. Now that I’m older I still have plenty of fandoms, but I’m not into them with the same gusto as other con-goers. I do still enjoy the social aspect of cons, so the table is generally stocked with dolls from my own fandoms so sales can help me meet fans and spark conversations.
Also, everyone seems to do at least one trip around the AA, which means all the great cosplayers scroll right by us! Jenn and I also cosplay, so one can watch the table while the other is at a shoot.
It’s been a while internet… I’ve been making things here and there so don’t think that I have stopped! A contest may be on it’s way, but I think it might be closer to after Youmacon (that means after the 1st of November) so then it saves on Christmas shopping! I haven’t decided quite yet. For all you know (or I know), I could be lying right now. Hah. We’ll see… If you want another “custom plushie contest,” leave me a message/comment/ask/anything with what you think I should offer and I’ll consider it for sure!
As for what I’ve been working on… they’re mostly dog toys and pillows. I’ll get some good photos (aside from my timeline ones I tend to post of my dog playing with the dog toys to test them out) and you can see for yourself!
Well, that’s interesting… Apparently I cannot do a “one time payment” donation of $0.50 from a plushie sale to my 3Day account. I did some testing and well, it looks like someone can ONLY donate a minimum of $5 online. I wonder what they would do if they received a $0.50 donation via check… Come on people… BUY MORE STUFF!!
I also created a few new things. I have a couple dog toys to be tried out on my dog to see if they can handle other dogs (well, a sense of similar attributes anyways) so we’ll see what happens and if this “takes off.” Hah. jackiesplushies.fb.com
And I plan on creating a few other surprises soon too!
JUST REALIZED that I had the wrong ‘page’ highlighted on my iphone for the last couple weeks and that’s why you’ve been seeing unrelated reblogs on my page. I hope you can forgive me and possibly even maybe start to follow my regular page? http://rawien.tumblr.com/ I do a lot of random reblogs if they relate to pretty things, orphan black, doctor who, and various other things… http://rawien.tumblr.com/ I am very sorry, but I am also a little confused why no one questioned it… Oh well, guess I don’t have *that* dedicated followers. Hah. Anyways… I plan on working on some plushies this week and I’ll post what I work on coming up! So keep an eye out for plushie-related updates from now on! I promise!
Alright I’m going to try something for the remaining month of June… or maybe I should do it for July as a full month…perhaps only for a few weeks - thoughts? —-> For every plushie that is ordered (requests included) $.50 of the total will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer 3Day. Every little bit helps, right?
So the con was successful. I didn’t sell out of my plushie army, which is good in a sense, but bad because I wanted to sell them all! Hah. Well, some people loved them, bought them, squeed over them and all that fun stuff so I guess that’s all I can ask for. I’m thinking a selective (or as a friend suggested) favorite plushies will go on Etsy. I could throw more of them on Storenvy, but we’ll see how things go. Pillows were definitely a huge hit though so if I want to do it again then I have to know that the TARDIS ones are the winners.
A friend of mine requested Big Bang Theory characters for someone’s birthday. I have to have this completed by May. I think I can do it, no…I know I can do it. Hah. I’ll keep you all posted on the progress.
