TangleClub September Update

Yes, it’s that time again, already!  I can’t quite believe it is suddenly September – where did summer go?  I don’t really mind, though, as autumn is my favourite season, and today is one of those beautiful bright, crisp September days that I love. 🙂

Back to business: TangleClub members will find the latest freebie now available over at the TangleClub Archive. This month, I’m offering an exclusive preview of a forthcoming zine called Borrowed Time.  Long-time followers of TangleCrafts might remember that one of my earliest zines was based on the classic children’s novel The Borrowers by Mary Norton.  That very zine has undergone a complete overhaul & re-design (including lots of additional content).  I’m still putting the finishing touches to it, but look out for the new version – complete with even more ‘added extras’ – sometime in the next month or so!

 If you are not currently a member of the TangleClub but want to share the monthly freebie goodness,  click here for all current membership options, and remember, if you spend £5 or more in the TangleStore or TangleStore UK you will qualify for TangleClub Basic membership absolutely free!

Updates

Just wanted to let TangleClub Deluxe members know that Mulberry Digest #4 has been printed (see left) and the first batch is being mailed out today – there’s a lot of folding involved, so it will be a 3-day process!  MD #5 will actually be fairly hot on its heels as it is currently in preparation, ready for mailing sometime next month.

Also leaving me in today’s post are prizes to the Zine Month Giveaway winners: copies of Dark Side of the Building, One a Day May ’11 and Star Farmer – but I’m going to leave it a surprise as to who gets which!

I have a couple of craft fairs coming up in the next few months (requiring lots of preparation), and am also getting close to completion on a couple of zine projects that I’ve had in my head for a while; so it’s all systems go, here.  Forgive my lack of blogging – I am still here, merrily chugging my way through orders & new stuff & will keep you updated of any interesting developments & diversions! 🙂

TangleClub August Update

Having realised I am going to be away from home at the crucial moment, the August TangleClub freebie has been added early, you lucky people! 😉  Hop over to the TangleClub Archive for an exclusive preview of a brand new project which I will be launching fully upon my return in a couple of weeks: The Achievement Badge Project (TAB Project, for short!).  As this project is top secret until the official launch, you’ll have to follow the link above for further details…

TangleClub July Update

July’s TangleClub freebie has just been added – hop over to the TangleClub Archive for an exclusive-to-TangleClub-members printable Mail-Craft Mini-Zine!  I spent a lot of June playing with my lovely collection of Machin stamps (and making badges from them!) so this mini-zine was the natural progression.  It includes some very easy ideas for making your own, personalised stationery by using & upcycling your own collected postage stamps, plus some Etsy links for further inspiration.

TangleClub June Update

A day late (and a pound or two short), June’s TangleClub freebie is now available!  Just hop over to the TangleClub Archive for your printable pebbly labels!  Use as address labels or whatever else comes to mind…  The border/corner doodle is one from the daily doodle project I mentioned in my previous pebbly post.  If you are not currently a member of the TangleClub but want to share the monthly freebie goodness,  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! 

In other news, I have been updating the review section of  the Enchanted Times blog.  It is still a work in progress with much more to be added. but if you are interested in revisionist fairy tales, you will now find indices installed so that you can browse by author surname or look up relevant stories by character/tale.  If you find your own favourite has been omitted, or not given sufficient weight, please feel free to submit a short review using the guidelines on the website.  Alternative viewpoints are welcome!

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.

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. 🙂

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…!
