Exclusive for Shiba rescue... one-of-a-kind Shiba wallets!

Roomy enough for a back pocket's worth of essentials, these sweet little card-keepers are one-of-a-kind creations. They measure approximately 3 X 5" and are made with the very finest of materials. I am a professional scrap-rat to a ridiculous degree, and these fun side-projects demonstrate why... even the tiniest bits and pieces might be the perfect shape for a nose, an ear, or a distinctive curly tail =). Modeled after three of my very favorite shiba-folk, these wallets are individually designed and intimately handcrafted.

They are destined for regional Shiba rescue fundraising auctions. If you'd like to get your paws on one, keep an eye out for them there, and please fork over the bucks to help them with their good work!!! =D

Back at it!

Back at work and veeeeery nearly caught up. A couple big custom pieces will keep me pretty heavily occupied this next week, but after that things should be running pretty smoothly again.
I most sincerely appreciate everyone's patience. We had a wonderful visit with our families, and got to see some absolutely spectacular bits of Oregon while we were at it. When I get a few spare moments, I'll post some photos.
Until then, here's some reading to keep you occupied: 10 Awesome things: What the health care reform will REALLY do for you

On behalf of entrepreneurs, small business owners, and my future employees... thumbs up for public-option health care!

Cheers ;0)

Feature spots, stuff

We were honored with two nice features this past week, with the fabulous Yuki packs making a cameo in an Etsy treasury listing and a featured spot in a very nice handcrafting blog, Dig Under Rocks
Thanks to both ladies for the features! Those packs are getting some attention out in the world.

We'll be continuing to run a bit slow in the next couple weeks. Currently our dockets are full to the point of bursting, and with family on the way for a good, extended visit. We haven't seen Mr. Armadillo's parents in years, so will be taking the next week mostly off from business. We'll be accepting orders for custom work, but with the caveat that wait times are likely to run 3-4 weeks for heavily custom gear as of today. Basic stuff should move a bit faster!

Cheers, and hope you all are enjoying the best of summers.
