Changes, New Items and Info

So, we will soon (I hope) be moving ourselves over to a typepad space for blogging.  The Mister and I decided that it would be better to have a blog that covers all of the Flex Family Arts shops and we wanted to start fresh with something clean and simple.  I will let you all know when its up and running!

We got in our pin back buttons posted in both of the shops over the weekend (thanks to the Mister for the pictures).  You can see both sets HERE and HERE.  For those of you who are on etsy, you can join the Threadkillers team and join in a chance to win a set of the Sideshow Gaffs pins and a $10 credit to any of the FFA shops! 

This month, you can also find us with new advertising spots at Today's Letters and ♥ Elycia.  We have just put out new ads for the All Night Diner shop!  Later today, you can also find a post on the etsyNEAT team blog that will be discussing the topic of paid advertising!  Check it out!

Last night I was able to complete the embroidery on a new portrait we've been working on!  Keep an eye on the AND shop for its reveal!

Giveaway, EtsyNEAT, blog feature and more!

Its been a busy week!

We are trying to get all our advertising work done for March (coming much faster than I had thought) while also adding more items to the All Night Diner shop and thinking ahead to the Athens Indie Craftsravaganzaa!

So, here goes all the new news. 

First, we are offering a giveaway along with the lovely Elycia over at ♥ Elycia.  We are giving away one of our Dale Cooper  pieces from the AND shop.  Head on over to enter and add her to your daily reading list, she is fabulous!

Today you can also head over to the EtsyNEAT team blog to see this week's treasury post on the "Jewels of EstyNEAT" and while you're there check out the rest of this week's posts from my fellow team mates!

Also, we received a message from the writers of Featherette blog that they were kind enough to feature one of the Pilous Percilla items "JoJo the Dog-Faced Boy" earlier this week.  Thanks to Karl and Jody!

We also got our new pin back buttons in yesterday from Oaky (a fellow Atlanta artist)!  They turned out better than I had hoped and we can't wait to share them with you!  We will be offering two sets:
Twin Peaks featuring the Man From Another Place and Dale Cooper
Sideshow Gaffs featuring the Jackalope and the Two-Headed Cow

That's about all for now.  Make sure to check out the newest AND addition...The Log Lady and keep an eye out for upcoming specials: The Jesus from Big Lebowski and Johnny Cash!

Updates and New Work

We have been so busy lately, there hasn't been much time to fret or fuss over this space, but there is so much new happening over at the Flex Family house...I had to share.

First, please check out our newest shop...All Night Diner where we are now offering portraits of all our favorite musicians, TV and film characters and more.  We have so much planned for this shop, so keep watching!

Next, we were offered the opportunity to be a part of the EtsyNEAT team blog recently and new posts have started going up as of last week!  The team is full of talented needlework artists so pop on over and check them all out!  You can see our scheduled posts on Thursdays!

Lastly, we have been so excited to be featured on some amazing blogs recently...some as sponsors and others just because.  We have included a list to the right where you can find us in all these spots on the web.
