Etsy Shop News

After leaving the shop on auto pilot for a while and some more mini-making it was time for some updates and changes.
What's New?

1. You know those mini riker mounts I made for the Steampunk House? Well I've been making more. Morpho butterfly and other sets are available now and more varieties are on the way!

I've also been adding in other assorted goods, including some one-time destash items worth checking out.
New items being added weekly.

2. You can now use Direct Checkout at my Etsy Shop! I now accept credit cards and Etsy gift cards, no Papypal account required. Still want to use Paypal? No worries, that's still an option. (Direct Checkout spooked me a little before, but the Etsy staff made some changes, so I decided to give it a try).

3. I am no longer listing international shipping as an option. Between having to know what I can ship where, the very high cost for the buyer (I use flat rate boxes, and it's over $20 now for non-U.S. locations), and living in a town with no post office (it complicates things), I don't want to make offers that I'm not sure I can back up 100%.

> However, if you don't live in the U.S. and are so interested in purchasing my work that you'd be willing to contact me about it, if the item in question is ok to ship to your country, I will ship internationally upon request. 

Sorry for the inconvenience. Hopefully I haven't alienated anyone, but at the moment that click-able option was more trouble than it's worth.

4. Illustration prints in my Etsy shop-coming soon! If you were part of the Kickstarter Campaign last month, this isn't news, but it's still worth mentioning. Thanks again to all the backers and other supporters, I'm just waiting for Amazon to clear the funds we raised, and then this project is a go!

If you're waiting to see the official 'Thank You Backers' post, don't worry I'm working on it.
Btw, if you backed the project and want a promo spot in the thank you post (the offer I posted earlier/on Kickstarter), please read the newest KS project update that I posted and send me your info ASAP. < You backed my project, I don't want you to miss out!

That's all for now,
