  2. Feb. KCYC will ship out next week
  3. Next update on 2/17 in new shop – fibernymphdyeworks.bigcartel.com. I’m putting everything up in preview mode so you can see it before Friday, you just can’t buy it yet. Any listings with a llama overlooking Machu Picchu are just place holder pictures. No trips to Peru being sold in the shop. Sorry! LOL (And if you’ve never seen the Llamas with Hats videos, you can find them here and here and here and here. Be warned…if you don’t like warped humor involving a good bit of animated blood & gore, these probably aren’t for you.)
  4. Etsy shop will remain open while there are still items in it. All new items, however, will be added to the new shop.
