Weekly Update & What's New

Printer's Tray & Morpheus Box Kits
Good News & Bad News

Here is the update on our NEW PRODUCTS-

The Morpheus Box Kit and Printer's Tray.

Good News- Bad News

Good News first, The Printer's Tray have been shipped and should arrive in a week or so.
The Pre-Order Sale Price of $15 for the Printer's Tray will be on through Sunday Oct 12th.
After that they will be at regular price of $20.
We are really excited about the Printer's Tray!
Michael deMeng will be offering several workshops in 2009 using this Printer's Tray.

Bad News, really only for those who did not Pre-order the Morpheus Box kits.
The manufacturer messed up and did not make the Morpheus Box kits for the shipment that is on it's way.

What does that mean?
Since it would cost too much to have the Morpheus Box kits shipped separately, we cancelled having them made by the manufacturer.

Bad News into Good News:

For all of you who have Pre-ordered the Morpheus Box Kits, we will be filling these orders only!
We will hand make the Morpheus Box kits with tender loving care! Only for those who Pre-Ordered and in the quantities they pre-ordered.

They will look the same as what was on the website, but the top and bottom finials will vary.
The Morpheus Box kits and the Printer's Tray will go out mid to late October.

The Artists' Nook Store Front
Moving all online......

No Really, I mean it!

One of my big goals for 2008 was to put all the product I carry in The Artists' Nook store front online! And then have project tutorials for you all to be inspired by!

Here we are in October 2008, and I am not there yet. I have been streamlining and fine tuning all my extra duties so now I am able to do this, Really!

For this phase to happen, The Artists' Nook store front will be open on weekends when we have workshops and events only!

This will free up some of my time for creating cool projects to share with you!
