Shipped on time and I am thrilled with the customer service and the product. Nice quality cardstock and embossment. The order took over 5 weeks once she mailed it. Florida to CT. That was USPS holiday delivery service. But, Adriprints followed the tracking with me and even called on of the post offices to try to help out.

Item: Let There Be Peace on Earth, embossed eco-friendly holiday boxed card set, art by Adriana Bergstrom

I love when I get repeat buyers, here’s what one lovely customer had to say about buying a second painting from me…

DeStashing

new studio wide

I have been on a journey for the last ten months. Most of this adventure has taken place inside google docs and 3 or 4 manila folders full of scratch paper. I have written my novel 5 times over and finally landed on a draft that I can make into something. The feeling is sublime., and I have taken a few days to revel in it. I sent it to my beta readers, had a drink to toast it, and gave myself the reward of Maria V. Snyder’s Glass Series. (I have devoured them. Seriously. We need to talk about book more often, reader friends.)

This journey of mine, however, has not just been about writing my novel. I have been on a highly introspective, speculative path that’s had some confidence building detours. I won’t say I’m completely done with it all, but I feel like I could wear this shirt honestly, and get some shit done.

If you’ve stuck with me over the last couple of years, there’s been no surprise that I didn’t know what the hell I’ve wanted to do. I’ve been bouncing around from one crafty infatuation to the next, without ever really settling on anything. One thing about writing my novel that helped me was that all of my passions kept popping up. That book incorporates so much that I love–coffee, textiles, modern small business strategy, men’s fashions. (True confession, I say I subscribe to the New York Times for the book review, and the comprehensive news, but the only thing I ever get through cover to cover is style magazine.) Through the writing process, and examining what worked for my characters, I was also somehow able to wrestle out what gives me the most joy.

Strangely enough, they are the two things I do the most already: writing and retail. I don’t know why it took me so long to figure out that I should put the two together and write about retail. Except that I am really excellent at getting in my own way.

Comical metaphorical stumbling aside, I have a head full of specialty retail knowledge, and if I don’t get some of it out on the page, I’m in danger of exploding it all over the place. And let’s be honest, there’s a time and place for telling someone they need to reexamine their pricing strategy. (But hey, if you wanna talk about pricing, check back tomorrow!) Meaning, that you, reader friends, can expect to read some tricks of the trade right here.

I am excited. Are you excited?

So what does all this self-helpy, soul-examining, navel-gazing have to do with destashing? It means I need to transform Tiny Dino Studios from a fiber studio to a multipurpose studio. There is a ton of awesome stuff that I’ve basically stopped using, and I want you to have it.

Through October 31st, my etsy shop will be open and all the yarns and spinning fibers I have stashed away will be up for grabs at 60-75% off. That is a steal of a deal on some really high quality yarn. I will be updating the shop on Saturday mornings with everything I can find through the end of October or as long as supplies hold out.

Mr Drum Carder

In addition to everything on etsy, I am selling my drum carder. I bought him right before I started to lose my enthusiasm for selling yarn, so I’ve made maybe 12 batts on the guy in the last couple years. (I have cleaned him up since I took this photo.) The card cloth is 120tpi/90tpi. I’m asking $200, and I’ll thrown in a bag of loose locks and fluff and stuff. Local only, I’d prefer not to ship this guy. Email me or leave a comment if you’re interested.

Check out etsy, and hang around for what’s next!

Moonshine Patterns as PDFs!

We were so thrilled when we heard from KFI that our Moonshine pattern booklet was sold out in the warehouse. Why? Because it means that we can now offer these patterns directly to you as pdfs! Of course it is much more economical to buy the pattern booklet, so check with your LYS to see if they might have a booklet left. And, all of our digital patterns are available to purchase through your yarn store if they participate in Ravelry’s In Store Sales program, which more and more shops are participating in.

Anyway, back to the task at hand… showing you which Moonshine patterns are now available digitally AND announcing our pattern sale to celebrate!

We’re offering 12 of our 14 Moonshine patterns by Ruth Garcia-Alcantud as pdfs. She knocked our socks off with this collection and we’re trilled to make these designs more accessible to you, gentle knitter.

Our most popular Moonshine patterns are:

the Carme sweater

Moonshine Carme

the effortlessly stylish Dione top

Dione

and the cover-girl of patterns, Phoebe sweater

Pheobe

But my personal favorites include:

The playful and unisex Mathilde hat

Mathilde

the Calliope vest has been in my queue since I first saw it, but I haven’t tackled it yet.

Calliope Vest

and I have a fondness for the not frequently practical, but absolutely whimsical Eugenia capelet

Eugenia Capelet

However, there are plenty of other great patterns in the collection like:

the Goddess-worthy Iocaste top

Iocaste

the easy and popular Amalthea cowl

Amalthea cowl

the gorgeous Elara kimono

the cozy Anthe shawl

Anthe Hero

the playful Calista top

Calista Laugh

and the darling Ida mitts

Ida Mitts

You can find more info about the pattern of your choice by clicking through the picture, or you can look at all of the Moonshine patterns.

To celebrate this pattern release and because it’s President’s Day, we’re putting all of our patterns on sale! If you purchase two or more patterns on our website, you will automatically receive 50% off of all of your patterns. Now is the time to stock up! The discount will be applied automatically during checkout and cannot be combined with any other discounts. Sale is this week only and expires 11:59p Eastern on Sunday, February 23rd.

All of these patterns will look great in our new Moonshine colorways. But I’m getting ahead of myself. Check back later this week for the start of the official unveiling of our Spring/Summer 2014 yarn lines, which are arriving in yarn stores now!

Tell Me Something Good Tuesday

Tell Something GoodTuesdays

There’s a lot of good stuff right now at Juniper Moon Farm! The giveaway is going very well and the end is in sight. I’m especially enjoying reading the comments on the Grand Prize Giveaway – favorite holiday memories – and on the Ravelry giveaway – moments of friendship. They’ve made be both laugh and cry and I thank you for that!

I’m nearly recovered from shingles. Of course between shingles and this giveaway I’m terribly far behind all my emails! (So if I owe you one, I apologize. I promise I’m trying to get to them and will be able to double down my efforts starting next Monday!) But I’m feeling much stronger than I have been and that makes me very happy!

The first shipment of our blanket CSA has arrived and the second shipment is due today! So all day today I’ll be shipping out blankets so that you will have them in hand before Christmas. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for speedy postal elves! I’ll have some pictures for you tomorrow.

Susan announced that we’ve got a book being published by Sixth&Spring and we couldn’t be more thrilled about that! We’ll have a photo shoot at the end of January, so look out for that.

And, our lambcam was named the official lambcam of Modern Farmer. We’re incredibly honored and excited that they chose us to kick off sheep week. Of course, we had the first ever lambcam, so it’s natural that they picked us.

So here’s the Something Good that we’re going to tell you: Everything in the shop is 10% of celebrate the good that this happening! That includes our shares! Just in time for holiday gift giving! To take advantage, use code TMSGT10. There will be a couple of great additions coming to the shop soon. The only things that this code doesn’t work on is merchandise sold outside fiberfarm.com. Lulu.com (where our calendar is being sold) has extended their free shipping offer through December 15th (code: FREESHIP), and they’ve been running additional deals. Yesterday I was able to order a calendar at 10% off PLUS free shipping, so you’ll want to see if they’re running any promos today.

Okay, we told you something good. Now it’s your turn! What’s good with you?

Indie Design Gift-Along!


Starting Nov. 1st, there's a promotion on all my self-published patterns.  I'm participating in the Ravelry Indie  Designer's Gift-Along promotion where we take 25% off many of our independently published designs.  I've marked all of my self-published designs down 25% with the coupon code "giftalong".  The promotion runs from Nov. 1st to the 15th, and is valid for only my self-published patterns purchased via Ravelry.

Moving Sale And Other Business

If you follow me on facebook or twitter, you might have seen it a few days ago when I announced we were moving. I wish I could say that we had found a great little house where we could all have a bit more space and plant a garden in the ground. But we’re not their yet. With Brock still being unemployed (he’s waiting to hear back from one job and has an interview for something really great on Tuesday–mojo requested), and being in the middle of planning a wedding on top of everything else involved in a normal life, I feel like I am being pulled in a million different directions at once. I am worn out by worrying about money–and stress settled on me in the form of a UTI that really took the wind out of my sails.

The good news is that Brock’s mom stepped in and has offered to let us stay with her until we are able to stabilize a little bit. It’s not that we can’t pay for what we have with just my job. It’s that it takes my entire paycheck to cover it. There is no room for emergencies–and when someone gets a UTI the week before they are supposed to get health insurance and then gets their debit card stolen and then the car battery dies–there just isn’t any effing wiggle room. It’s a recipe for a meltdown. She has been offering for months, and Friday, we took her up on it. She has three extra bedrooms upstairs that we are going to move into. There will be a bedroom for us, a bedroom for Athrun and a private living/studio space. Minerva will be absolutely spoiled by the cat flap and closed-off, cat-friendly backyard. We will be able to pull this wedding together and throw a little money at debt the next couple of months, and be out back on our own when Brock is stably employed.

What we won’t have is a lot of storage. We’re planning a big garage sale for the weekend we move in, and what doesn’t sell is being donated. More importantly for you though, I am not going to have room to store all of my yarn or to dye yarn while we are there. A little sad, yes, but a great opportunity for you!

Over the weekend, I marked down all of my yarn and fiber by at least 30% and it will remain that way until it’s gone, gone, gone. And my mission is to sell most of it by the time we move in three weeks. Now is the time to stock up on sock yarn!

(RAWR! sock yarn club will proceed as normal, sock clubbers)

In the meantime, I am sorting through my personal stash and slowly starting to pack up the apartment. I plan to keep blogging, and hope to devote some more time to other projects while I am not dyeing.

Be on the lookout for some destash deals over the next few days.

For now, it’s day 5 of Tour de Fleece, and I need to get spinning!

Also, Brock hasn’t been idle in his unemployment. Aside from keeping up with the dishes, he’s been working on something fun: Dig, Robot, Dig!.
