With all the new designs we have, it seems that I am able to send out a full newsletter just about every two weeks. All of you who read here see my portion of new designs that we have to offer at Sheila Landry Designs, but there are also the things that Keith contributes to the site as well. That makes for a lot of new stuff!
I made both versions because some people really liked the key shapes and some people requested that I use the same designs in just a regular ornament shape. In the regular ornaments, the designs are a bit bigger than the keys so they are a bit easier to cut as well.
Since some people may want both, I am offering a special price for them to purchase both patterns (for just $2 more than one of the individual patterns) as a set (SLD440 - Spooky Halloween Keys and Ornaments) which will include all 24 designs. I think that is fair.
I also want my painting friends to be assured that I am going to spend the weekend working on painted versions of these ornaments. I have had many requests to do them in both the key shapes and also the regular ornament shapes so I am sure I will be offering similar deals on those two patterns, as well as offering the pre-cut wood pieces (NO inside cuts) for them. It is going to be a busy weekend.
Keith also had some new designs that I want to share here. He created a cute “Gone Golfing” plaque because we have had a great deal of requests from golfers or friends of golfers for items.
He also created another wonderful set of filigree ornaments. This time Christmas stockings was the theme and they came out just beautiful!
In addition, we put many of our most popular Halloween designs on sale on our Pattern Special page. And we have a new free pattern for our customers to download on our Free Patterns and Resources page.
I am posting this information here because we find that some of our mailing list customers don’t always receive our newsletters. So many email providers are making their security settings so high that sometimes our newsletters get filtered into the SPAM folder, even though their customers signed up for it and asked for me. My own newsletter to myself frequently winds up in my Gmail folder, even though I repeatedly marked it as good. So I think posting updates here on the blog are a good thing.
Today I am going to get back to work on my new plaque for the magazine submission. I can’t wait to do it and I think it will come out really nice. It is going to be another busy day, but a beautiful one as well. There are already puffy clouds floating by and the sun is peeking out from time to time from behind them.
I hope you all have a wonderfully creative and productive day!
