Checking in, and today's stocking! :)

Good morning and Happy Wednesday!  Today is the last day to vote for your favorite in the November 2012 Photo Contest - make sure to take a look! <3

I wanted to share a few notes about today's stocking, including the new Bundles category link, and to touch base about our production increase and website progress! :)

As we continue to increase production, this week offering 104 ready to ship diapers for example, we will be able to offer more bundles/sibling sets! :)  For that reason we've opened a category on our Big Cartel shop called Bundles.  Here is the direct link: http://twinkietush.bigcartel.com/category/bundles.  (All other category links can be found at the end of this blog post.)  This week we are offering Holiday Bundles, including a Big Elf Little Elf sibling set and 2 Christmas Day 3-packs!

You will also notice, beginning this week, that we are no longer going to be able to show individual preview photos on small scale or simple repeat stripe prints, simplify or night-nights.  I love showing photos of each exact diaper, but the additional time required in photographing, creating listings, and packaging is substantial. For certain prints I know how important it will be to continue to see exact cuts, and for now we will continue to make sure that happens! :)  Diapers like Hot Diggity Dog and Kitty J'Adore from this week will continue to be shown individually. :)

Here are some examples of prints/stripes which will no longer be shown individually.  In these cases we will show a single diaper which will stand as a representation of the print or colorway.

As we approach our production goals for late 2012, we are taking on hundreds more customs each month in the form of groups and mini groups and we have almost tripled production for weekly stockings!  While our stockings are still relatively competitive, we find we are much closer to meeting the demand for our diapers and that is SUCH a good feeling!  I hope you are finding stockings and group custom drawings more enjoyable and less frustrating, and know that we still aren't at what I would consider full production.  More is on the way, and we are always listening to your feedback to make sure we're on target with just what you're looking for! :)

A word on Group Customs: As December approaches (how did that happen so fast??) we want to share a change with regards to large groups.  We have, for quite a while now, asked that you stick to 2 groups per household.  Beginning in December, please feel free to participate in up to 3 groups per household! :)  Mike and I are working on tweaking the GC process to help things run more smoothly post-drawings.  We'll have more info on that for you before next month's drawings!

We have been waiting a long time for the launch of twinkietush.com and I know you have as well!  We are incredibly close to opening the site up to you for beta testing, which I am beyond excited about!  We are still working through some coding challenges and appreciate your continued patience with this process.  Our needs are so specific and, I have learned, fairly complicated!  We are in great hands with our developers and  they want to make sure everything is running beautifully before we launch.  :)

Thank you so much for your continued support - it is such an honor and a privilege to work with you and to know you.  I'll see you today at 2pm EST for stocking! :)
