January Release Recap AND SO MUCH MORE!!!!

Hieeeeeee!!! I'm waving under stacks of orders and flying tissue and I'm pretty sure I have a sticker in my hair somewhere!

Thank you so much for your overwhelming response to our new release! Please know that myself and Gillian, my rockin' office assistant, are working our buns off to get all of your order out. Yes, I call them buns. LOL!!! That shows my age...doesn't it?! HAahaha. I digress.

I have SO MUCH to tell you about including sharing all of the team projects made for this release and announcing our three PRIZE WINNERS!!! Before I get to all of that I'd like to share some other news with you about our business and website.

Recently, we've implemented some changes to our website which I hope that you'll be happy to read about. Lil' Inker Designs' website has new and improved encryption! Every single page of our website has encryption which you can see. Visit any page of our website and notice the green padlock in the address bar. That green padlock means site secure! YAY! You can also scroll down to the bottom of any page on our website to see an icon which represents the encryption we use and that it's up to date. Truthfully, these protections have always existed but now YOU can see them and that can make a huge difference when shopping and checking out.

Also, we're very pleased to announce that Lil' Inker Designs, LLC is now an accredited business with the Better Business Bureau (BBB). You can link to our accreditation on the BBB website by visiting our homepage and clicking on the BBB logo at the bottom. I hope that you'll stop by and share your experiences.

I also have something amazing brewing which I think you will all be very pleased to read. It too is regarding our store and website and it's pretty BIG and I'm excited to share it with you. I'll make an announcement when everything is up and running.

Thank you for entertaining me while I made those quick announcements. In other housekeeping news, we've recently restock an absolute TON of stamps and dies and chances are if there is something you've been waiting on IT'S BACK!!! This excludes some holiday specific stuff which will be back later this year. However, I am working on getting you a couple of our holiday stamp sets and dies including the Make A Santa stuff which will be back in a couple of weeks. YAY!

Ok, I do have more to tell you but let's take a look at all of the gorgeous projects that our amazing and talented Design Team made for you to inspire your personal creations with these new products.

You might notice that I saved Maureen's work to display last and that is because I would like to take a minute and let you know (if I say it, it makes it real) but this was Maureen's last post as a Lil' Inker Design Team Member and I'm just sooooooo bummed out. Maureen is a really talented designer and I look forward to seeing both her projects but her beautiful photos as well each month. Maureen has been a real asset to this team and I'm truly disappointed that this great run is over. Noooooooooo!!!! Say it ain't so!!!!

I'd like to show you some of my favorite creations of Maureen's during her time here on the team but before I do, thank you, Mo!!!! :) Thank you for working so hard on this team and for making our products shine. You will honestly, truly be missed and someone is going to have some big shoes to fill. Thank you for everything and best of luck to you my dear and DON'T be a stranger!!!!
