The Big Ol' Whoppin' Post of Awesome Creations (Part One)

Hey guys,

It's been a while since I've posted some of your creations, but that doesn't mean I haven't been hoarding them like a dragon on precious gemstones!  (...I have been reading a lot of fantasy novels, lately.)  Because there are SO many, I'll be posting them over the next couple days.  I hope that you enjoy this big ol' whoppin' post of awesome creations (part one) and I will try to spread them out more from here on.  :o)

Saturday Give-Away!

Hello Everyone!

I know I have been pretty MIA lately, but I'm doing much better and can actually sit at the computer without melting into a puddle of goo.  :o)

First off today, I want to congratulate Alina!  She won the last Saturday Give-Away drawing!  Make sure to comment on this post for a chance to win a Fantasy Fun Pack!

Also, while I'm making this post, I wanted to quickly address the new 'Direct Pay' option available through Etsy.  For those of you unfamiliar with it, Etsy now offers sellers the option to allow customers to pay directly to Etsy using their credit card.  Unfortunately, at this time, I will not be utilizing the Direct Pay option on the MayzyArt Stamps shop.  

The reason for this is that Etsy charges the seller $0.25 per sale to use direct pay.  This seems paltry, but when you consider that that is a full eighth of the price of one stamp, and is in addition to the $0.20 I am already paying per stamp to list on Etsy, this means that nearly a quarter of each sale will go to Etsy, rather than supporting my ability to make more stamps for you.  I simply cannot afford to work at such a small profit margin and, if I used Direct Pay, I would have to raise my prices.  One of my three pillars with MayzyArt is that I will keep my stamps as affordable as possible and so, at this time, I will stick with PayPal.  

I hope that you all understand the reasoning and that this is not a big inconvenience for you!  If you have any thoughts, I welcome you to share them.  :o)

Sale through Friday!

Hey Kiddos,

Sorry for the disappearing act of late.  I was hit by a nasty flu bug and it totally threw me for a loop.  Unfortunately, it made for not a lot of computer time.

But the good news is that I'm getting better and will be posting new stamps soon- I promise!  I also have a whole inbox full of great creations by y'all to share.  Just give me a few days, because I can't spend too much time on a computer right now without getting all dizzy and woozy.  Not fun!

BUT in order to perk up the spirits, I've decided to throw the first ever CRAZY MAYZY sale!  What is a CRAZY MAYZY sale?  Why just 20% off everything in the store!  Now's your chance to get that extra stamp or two you've been eye-balling.  Just use the coupon code CRAZYMAYZY on checkout!  (Be sure to use the code before you pay, because I cannot apply the discount without it!)

The sale will end Friday at midnight MST, so take advantage now!
