There are a few days left of my Kickstarter campaign! We are currently at $420!!! The extra funds are enabling me to include a second charm set for a total of 10 designs.



CUTE!!!

If you’d like to get your own charm(s), please make a pledge! You have until Wednesday morning to get them at the pre-order rate of $5 per charm. I’m pretty sure they’ll be retailing at $6 so this is quite a deal! And if we reach $500, I’ll be releasing a THIRD set! WOO HOO!

In other news, I have an announcement!

If you wish to receive a made-to-order or custom Nonesuch Doll in time for Christmas, please have your order in by November 1st! On November 1st, all made-to-order dolls will be removed from my Etsy shop and my web shop will be temporarily closed. My in-stock dolls will still be available in my Etsy shop and I will still be accepting custom orders on a limited basis.

The main reason for this is that I want to focus on making new doll designs and creating new products for awhile. I have been spending so much time making the same dolls over and over that I feel like my business is going in circles. I am grateful for the orders, but it’s time for me to move forward and see what else I can get to grow and bloom here at Nonesuch Garden.

So stay tuned! Because you’ll be seeing lots of new faces and new projects starting soon!

If your dropping in because you picked up my card or catalog from the Queen City Craft Bazaar, WELCOME! Thank you so much for stopping by my table to chat and take a look at my work. I hope it left a lasting impression!

Now that the show is over, I’ll have a little more time to work on some new designs. I really want to pick up where I left off and get caught up on the Zodiac dolls. I have nine left to go! Aries is up next. I also want to make some new dolls from my long long list of animals I want to add to the Nonesuch doll family. Some of these animals include an arctic fox, a great white shark, and a peacock.

What would you like to see made into a Nonesuch doll?

MoCCA was a blast! Thank you to everyone who stopped by my table. It means a lot to me!

I’m back home and hitting the ground running. I have lots of orders and lots of dolls to make! If you’re waiting for a doll, check out my brand new Order Status page! Your order status number is the first three letters of your last name and the date you placed your order. Check back frequently for updates!

I admit I’m getting really far behind on the Zodiac dolls. I’m sorry if this disappoints anyone! It really is a personal project and paying orders need to come first. I won’t give up, though! I still plan on having them all finished by the end of the year. But the planned monthly releases may be a bit more sporadic from now on.

I think that’s it for Nonesuch Garden news for today! See you later!

I FINALLY finished Pisces! YAAAY!

They are based on koi fish. The mother fish is a Kohaku and the baby fish is a Tancho. The baby fish stands a mere 1.75 inches tall! I didn’t think I could make a Nonesuch doll that small, but here is proof that I can! I LOVE THEM AND THEY ARE MY FAVORITE. (Not that I’m bias being a Pisces or anything…)

They are available for purchase in my Etsy Shop!

Finally, a dream realized! Not only is NonesuchGarden.com live, it now has its very own shopping cart!

After researching a few different shopping cart services, I decided to give BigCartel a whirl. It was designed with artists in mind and is fairly easy to use and customize. My shop is just the basic “Sexy” theme with quite a bit of CSS code tweaking. I’m not versed in CSS code, but I managed to make my shop look more or less like the rest of my website without too much trouble. (Searching Google for coding tips helped!) I’m very pleased with what I was able to accomplish!

What does this mean for my Etsy Shop? Nothing really! I will still keep my Etsy Shop obsessively well maintained. For now, my BigCartel shop will only feature Open Edition dolls that I have in stock. Etsy will feature all of my Made to Order, Limited Edition, and Seasonal dolls. This will help me avoid selling the same item at both locations by mistake. If BigCartel proves to be successful for me I may give it a little more priority, but I’m going to keep it small for now and see how it goes.

Onward and upward!

And so are the Nonesuch Easter Bunnies!
From left to right: Daisy, Peony, Lavender, Periwinkle, and Clover.

Spring is in the air! I can feel it despite the snow showers we had yesterday and the thick ice I found on my car this morning… Earlier this week I saw the first crocus shoots poking defiantly out of the frosted ground. There are robins singing in the trees by my house. Yes, spring is on its way!

Nonesuch Garden is getting ready to celebrate Spring with five new Nonesuch dolls! Can you guess what they are? Easter bunnies!! Each one is a different springtime color with a flower name to match. They will be debuting in my Etsy Shop on March 20th; the first day of Spring!

Also coming soon is this month’s Zodiac doll: Pisces! I know I’m behind, but I promise I will make all 12 signs before the end of the year.

Thank you for your interest in Nonesuch Garden!  This site will be updated gradually over the next several days.  In the meantime, please visit my Etsy Shop!
