TangleClub May Update

Hurrah!  At last!  With sincere apologies for my tardiness I am happy to declare that the latest issue of the Mulberry Digest (Neverendings issue) has been sent out to all TangleClub Deluxe members today.  Updated TangleClub membership cards have been included (& will be rolled out to TangleClub Basic members with June-onward join dates throughout the rest of this month).  Having moved house & finally settled in, I think things are at last getting back to ‘normal’ around here.  Thanks for bearing with me!

Although I neglected to stop by and say so, I did add a new freebie to the TangleClub Archive on Sunday, so please hop over and check it out. 🙂  I’ve been reading a lot lately, so I’m hoping my fellow bibliophiles will appreciate the printable bookmarks I have designed.  They include spaces for you to add your personal recommendations, for those of us who cannot resist evangelising about our favourites.  Include a bookmark when you donate a book to a charity shop, or take a leaf out of the BookCrossing book and leave one in a book surrendered to the wild, for somebody else to discover serendipitously.

Oh, and if you’re still not a member of the TangleClub,  click here for all current membership options, and remember, if you spend $10 or more in the TangleCrafts Etsy Store, you will qualify for TangleClub Basic membership absolutely free! 

TangleClub April Update

Oops, running somewhat late this month… :S  Still, I hope TangleClub members enjoy this month’s exclusive freebie, a Gingerbread Man online-only mini-zine.  It is yet another sneak preview from the (still forthcoming) next issue of the Enchanted Times, and includes the Fast-As-You-Can Weight Loss Plan gingerbread recipe, plus a guide to the Gingerbread Man in fiction.   Head on over to the TangleClub Archive and check it out. 🙂

Not a TangleClub member (yet) but don’t want to miss out?  Click here for all current membership options, but remember, if you spend $10 or more in the TangleCrafts Etsy Store, you will qualify for TangleClub Basic membership absolutely free!

Just a note: despite last month’s promise, Mulberry Digest #3 is still in preparation, and I have not yet sent out updated TangleClub membership cards.  Please bear with me – I will catch up with my intentions, eventually…!

 

TangleClub – December update!

Happy December, everybody!  I hope you all have a joyful festive season. 😀

This month’s TangleClub freebie is an online version of my Pied Piper mini-zine (a sampler for the forthcoming Enchanted Times #2.5, a Pied Piper special edition).  Click on over to the TangleClub Archive to read online – hope you enjoy! 🙂

Another exclusive offer for existing TangleClub members:
Place an order anytime throughout December and receive a very random surprise mini-zine which I promise will not be available at any other time!  Remember that there is also a new process for claiming your TangleClub discount (it makes life easier, I promise!).  Please read the update on the TangleClub Discount page for full details.

Please be aware, though, that international shipping dates for Christmas are now drawing very close (some have already passed), and I’m afraid I can’t promise delivery before the big day for any orders placed from now on.

Have you joined the TangleClub yet?  If not, click here for all the different options!  Alternatively, spend $10 or more on anything else in the TangleCrafts Etsy Store and receive a Basic Membership Package absolutely FREE!

New things!

Check out the TangleCrafts Etsy Store for newly added items!  

First up is a brand new & revamped version of the Post Post Post Club – not only does it include a brand new issue of the Meta Mail Art Zine (available exclusively to club members), but you will also receive a membership card (entitling you to free gifts with future orders); a postmark address book, with PPP-exclusive mailing labels; plus exclusive mail art postcards to play with.  See the Etsy listings for full details & additional photos.  There are lots of different elements involved with each club package, so I will only be making limited memberships available at a time, so that I can keep on top of putting them all together.

And if you’re up for some mail art but fancy something a little bit different, why not enter into employment with the Local Post of Tangledom, as a Travelling Post Officer?  The Post Officer’s Companion will tell you all you need to know, and comes complete with a sample booklet of TangleStamps, a Travelling Post rubber stamp for cancellations, and a DIY TangleStamp kit for your own unique mulberry paper artistamp creations.

And remember – Christmas is coming!  I can’t make any promises, as we all know that the postal services at this time of year can be unreliable, to say the least, but if you place your order before the end of November, I will do my best to have your order reach you before Christmas.  The earlier you can order the better, though! Don’t forget, you will receive a free mini-zine with any order placed before the end of November!

TangleClub – October update!

Have you joined the TangleClub yet?  If not, click here for all the different options!  Alternatively, spend $10 or more on anything else in the TangleCrafts Etsy Store and receive a Basic Membership Package absolutely FREE!

For existing members your club-exclusive freebie for October awaits you!  This month, you can print your very own ‘Ideas Grow’ mini-zine notebook, perfect for tucking in your pocket, and can be used to design your own comic rather than take notes, if you prefer!  Click on over to the TangleClub Archive for full details. 🙂

Another exclusive offer for existing TangleClub members:
Place an order anytime throughout October and receive a First Day Cover postcard of the latest TangleStamp!  The design is called ‘Star of Daphne’ and is derived from a hand-carved block print.  The postcard also tells you the story behind the Star of Daphne, an element of Tangledom’s unique folklore.

TangleClub – September update!

Wow – since the launch of the TangleClub at the beginning of April, we already have nearly 80 members!  I’m really pleased to see so many of you taking advantage of the benefits, and claiming your discounts & freebies with subsequent orders. 🙂

Existing members can now take advantage of the latest club-exclusive freebie – a printable sheet of TangleStamps (faux postage).  Click on over to the TangleClub Archive to take a peek!

As of September 1st 2010 (today!), I have made a few changes to the TangleClub. See below for full details of 2 new Membership Packages, Basic & Deluxe ( upgrades available), now in the TangleCrafts Etsy Store:

The Basic Membership Package – $5
or FREE when you spend over $20 (excl. postage)

$5 is a small price to pay, if you consider all the savings you will make on future orders placed within the following year, but you can still claim an absolutely FREE basic membership package when you spend over $20 on any other TangleCrafts items.  Your membership cardlet (more than a card but less than a booklet!) entitles you to:

  • FREE mail art/mail craft address labels with every order
  • 10% discount on your 1st order
  • FREE mini-zine with your 2nd order
  • FREE postage on your 3rd order
  • 20% discount on your 4th order
  • 10% discount on all subsequent orders
  • FREE Basic Membership (for year following current membership period), with your 8th order

The Deluxe Membership Package – $10
With the deluxe membership package you will receive all the benefits & discounts as above, but in addition, you will receive a zinebomb mini-zine, plus a club-exclusive 5 issue subscription to the Mulberry Digest over the following year of your membership.  Each issue includes:

  • The latest seasonal news from Tangledom
  • Updates on the newest zines & products available from TangleCrafts
  • Additional special offer freebies available only to TangleClub Deluxe members!

Upgrade Membership Package (Basic Member) – $6
If you already have a Basic TangleClub Membership but would like to upgrade to Deluxe Membership, you can purchase this upgrade package to claim all the benefits as outlined above.

Upgrade Membership Package (original member) – $5
If you joined the TangleClub during the introductory period (April-August 2010), you can purchase this upgrade package to become a full TangleClub Deluxe member, with all the benefits as outlined above, but only 4 issues of Mulberry Digest (because your membership will expire before the 5th is released).  Available to purchase until December 31st, 2010 only.

TangleClub – August update

If you are a member of the TangleClub, now is the time to check out the TangleClub Archive for the latest club-exclusive freebie.  This month, I have put together an online exclusive for TangleClub members, combining the very first Going Postal mini-zine with the most recent, completed on August 2nd.

Inspired by the contributions so far?  There’s still time to contribute!  Submissions are still accepted until August 31st – click here for full details.

Not a member?  All you need to do is place an order for any item in the TangleCrafts Etsy Store, and your TangleClub membership package will be despatched with your order.

Already a member?  Don’t forget, you are entitled to 10% off your next order (or different discounts/offers if you have already placed a second order) so browse the store, and see what’s new!

TangleClub – July update

If you are a member of the TangleClub, now is the time to check out the TangleClub Archive for the latest club-exclusive freebie.  This month, you can print your own double-sided recipe cards featuring the cutest tuxedo cat.  I’ve formatted the PDF for both A4 and letter-size card, so everybody can play. 🙂

Not a member?  All you need to do is place an order for any item in the TangleCrafts Etsy Store, and your TangleClub membership package will be despatched with your order.

Already a member?  Don’t forget, you are entitled to 10% off your next order (or different discounts/offers if you have already placed a second order) so browse the store, and see what’s new!

P.S. I am currently sold out of the aforementioned Craft Leftovers Monthly, but should have some additional copies available in the next week or two.

TangleCrafts & TangleClub updates

May was a bad month for me, as anyone who has placed an order recently can testify (please note, though, that all delayed orders will be in tomorrow’s post, along with my sincere apologies!).  I am relieved to say that I am pretty much caught up, though, and working on several new projects, so there will be various new things appearing on these pages and in the Etsy store over the next couple of weeks.

In the meantime, TangleClub members should hop on over to the TangleClub Archive, where I have just added the latest club exclusive freebie: Stamp a Stamp printable mini-zine.  There are also several new volumes of the Going Postal mini-zine now available in the Etsy store, so check out the Mail Art Category for even more postally creative inspiration!

More soon – watch this space…!
