...Sneak Peek No 5. Sept'09

ED - Just to let you know, Today I received a consignment of stamps and I now have in stock: Very Vintage Christmas
Earth Angel
Irish Blessings
Celtic Heritage
Say it with Style
Gingerbread Joy - Oven Fresh
Gingerbread Joy - Half Baked

Today's sneak peek is an image from the Background set that will be releasing soon. It is part of the same stampset that contains the Plaid making stamp seen HERE and HERE.

About the release: I have not set a definite date as yet for the release. Part of the reason for this is that since I am a one person company, I do it all myself, designing, order processing/packing, making samples etc.

As such, I worked out roughly how many days of samples I need for each new stamp set I produce. I figured that 2-3 days per set is about right. Normally I will be producing 2 sets per month and so the build up to each release will usually be just under a week long with samples, sneak peeks etc.

I have said it before but you mightn't have read it, lol, there are just some sets that I HAD to get out there, things that have been flapping about in my head for ages! lol - that is part of the reason that this next release is all set to be a monster release! The other reason is that I will be formally Launching my little company with a brand new webstore!!!! you can guess how much work has gone into that! lol.

Also. I will be announcing the Design Team!!!

In the future I hope to have the help of the design team with samples etc and so I'm expecting to get into a routine whereby I will release 2 sets a month, and the sneak peeks/release will take just under a week.

I realize that my releases have been a little scattered and a lot of folks like a bit of routine (myself included!) but this has been due to the upheaval and huge amount of work involved in setting up a new company, I do expect this to settle. I thank you all for putting up with me in the meantime and I look forward to the release - I'm itching to open the store!!!!!

I hope that the samples over the next week or so will keep you folks from getting bored in the meantime, and stay tuned since it is a monster release - there will be a competition one of these days with a monster prize!!!!!!!
