Let’s Chat

So, it’s been a bit since we last caught up. there’s been all matters of good, bad and otherwise.

As you might have read, if you’re following my social media, I finally got the chance to get on Merch by Amazon. It’s been what I thought might help but it came with a cost. I searched “magpie muddles” and saw my initial 3 items but also that one of my designs had been stolen. Not a great feeling you can imagine. I have taken it up with Amazon, but as of now they don’t seem to think I’ve given enough proof that I created the design in question and won’t do anything to the other seller. Let me make this very clear, I design for myself and only myself. My designs are never for purchase (maybe in the future I’ll change my mind and offer that but not now). I never was asked and even if I had been I’d of said no (see the reason preciously). Even if I buy a design that is for commercial use, I non’t just slap it on and say done, I always do something to make it mine. That’s part of the charm of really making something special. Like I love that people actually do create for someone to use their design and and just sell it but I really want everything to have my spark. So I find it truly gross that someone flat out stole a design I actually created and just used it as they wanted with no regard to the actual person who put the time and thought into it. I’ve no respect for anyone like that period.

I am because of all this making the move to have Raine of Iris as just a hub for info and redo the brands a bit. Magpie Muddles will become the graphic design hub now. It will have all the Magpie originals plus Kalamity Raine gaming designs and Parapopulous spookiness. Both Kalamity Raine and Parapopulous will continue as shope on their own because I know some people just want to shop brand specific and those also could have other endeavours that need to be freestanding. My OOAK handmade organic creations will fall to Betwixt Baubles. And the rest will remain as is. It’s a lot and I want to get it all right and keep it as simple as possible for everyone to find.

I have added another site for my photography, I think actually 2 in fact from the last time I sat here and told tales of things I’m up to. Perhaps I am spread thin but I do truly love all the things I do and it would be like picking a favourite child if you said I could only do one thing. Links are as always here on site (or on their way but in a post if time is very pressing or I’m ridiculously excited to share).

I’m looking for a way to search my works on Amazon.com easier but best way I can figure currently is to search “magpie muddles” in the quotes. By the way the coffee cup is not mine, that’s the stolen design. If you want a coffee cup or a travel mug, I’ve got lovely ones on my redbubble … please don’t support stolen merchandise designs.

Thanks for all your support! Honestly in times like these it’s lovely to have such a great community.

Ohai

Popping in today to let you all know about some new designs available exclusively through my Magpie Muddles redbubble shop. I’ll warn you they’re a little cheeky and might even make you hungry!

Curious…. Carbie Barbie (2 versions) and Carbie Ken have arrived. Sadly they don’t come with any actual carbs but the merch does let you show your love for it!

Here’s a small peek

Remember these designs are available on so much more than tee shirts! And please tag MagpieMuddles on IG so I can see the creations in their new homes.

New shop items

Just finished updating all the redbubble shops with new merchandise. Of course there are usually small differences in colour or placement from hub to category specific shop but that’s simply me being human. There will be new designs coming to the Kalamity Raine, the Magpie Muddles & the hub (aka raine of iris) shops as soon as I am feeling better; with Parapopulous to get a new design or two shortly after that.

I will be deciding after that which platforms I will have designs available on. Thanks as always for your purchases and support!

Catching Up

So it’s been an okay month.

I’ve gotten back into a streaming schedule. I have only 3 scheduled but I as a rule end up having more. I like the flexibility of being able to pop in as time allows without having to potentially adjust or cancel. I will likely add a day to the schedule and perhaps adjust start time. I’ll keep you posted on that. As always Twitch is where to find me.

I’ve been working on new designs..

These are all currently available in my KalamityRaine redbubble. The Appalachia Awaits is a limited time design, so grab it on whatever you need it on before it’s gone.

I will be reopening the redbubble hub and it will have all of the availabile designs from the individual shops so you can one stop shop. And if you prefer to browse by genre, the individual shops remain open. It offers quick or relaxed browsing options. And of course new designs (some limited time) are coming to all.

I will am designing new pieces for the Etsy shops. Full production won’t start until I’ve finished off the construction of the last shelves (for now) in the living area. That being said, I am bringing new creations shortly.

It’s difficult juggling everyone and everything but I’m working with what delights me in hopes it will bring the same to someone else. Insomnia, depression & injuries are always accompanying but it’s good to have faithful companions.

I hope this finds you in good humour and abundance of joy.

au revoir

Morphing Again

So, hi.

As if I didn’t have enough work to do with just the usual stuff, I realized a slight error and well, that needs to be corrected. I know, WTF now. See Raine of Iris was meant to be a hub only and I opened a shop or two and a channel. Whoops! So, the deviantArt has renamed to InexplicablyIris. The redbubble and Design by Humans will reopen as MagpieMuddles and the etsy shop, twitter and all existing social media currently existing will become reactive for the shop use. The Twitch and YouTube will not close for Raine of Iris but go dormant.

I will be closing all Rainebows End during this and moving any videos onto the rainecaster channel. Rainecaster remains the IRL and behind the scenes go to place.

 

I also now have a dedicated page (beyond the FineArtAmerica and the already mentioned deviantArt that is staying in place) for my photos, it is http://iris-newman.pixels.com . I’ve got a ton more photos to get live and adjustments to make to the site but, it’s there currently if y’all want to go visit.

I’m still nowhere near back to where I want to be and for that I apologize.

au revoir

And as promised….

Here comes the Design by Humans shop info.

So I’ve opened one for Raine of Iris (my hub) and seperate specific ones focused on gaming for gmeraine and spooky things for parapopulous.

My reasoning was each is slightly different and I know some people just don’t want to shop in certain places, so with this I’ve given you a little choice. I hope you’ll check them out.

Look forward to an update blog / vlog here and on the rainecaster YouTube soon. I know it’s been a wait but there’s still so freaking much going on and I’m working on it, I promise.

until then

au revoir
