Trick or Treat for Halloween

Trick or Treat ~ Trick or Treat
Trick or Treat ~ Trick or Treat
Trick or Treat for Halloween
When ghosts and goblins by the score
Ring the bell on your front door
You'd better not be stingy or
Your nightmares will come true

So when ghosts and goblins by the score
Ring the bell on your front door
You'd better not be stingy or

A Shining Example of a TRUE Role Model for Children!

As I blogged on yesterday, my daughter is having problems in school - so this evening on the weekly call home to speak with my Momma, the subject of school came up and of course - her favorite person in the world - Capt. Jack Sparrow.

Now, Mr. Depp has been quoted as to not having a great deal of apathy for the US and it's leaders;  even choosing to live abroad - but you've got to respect this man for his interest in children and his encouragement of the young mind... even if they are only looking for his help to 'mutiny' against their teachers.

More television and screen personalities should follow this lead!  Especially those who are considered the "tops" or 'most sought after' in their fields!  What better way to show the children of today the generosities of the heart, than by lighting up the face of a child for the mere sake of a smile!  
(For anyone thinking this was a press/photo op or some sort of PotC ploy - the school was given only 10 minutes notice Capt Jack was on his way - to make ready.. )

Bravo Mr. Depp - er um.. 
Captain... Captain Jack Sparrow.  You truly are an upstanding gentlemen, who would merit an invitation to any high-toned and fancy to-do; despite the desire to raid, pillage, plunder and otherwise pilfer your weasely black guts out.

Some Sad News

You may have noticed that I've not put up a new entry, despite the steady flow I'd previously gotten into...

My child, who carries a diagnosis of Autism, is having severe issues adjusting to her new teachers, schedule, peers and workload.  So severe, we are actually considering home schooling; rather than continuing to allow the psychological damage that is currently being done by the school.  I've had to spend more time with the school in the past weeks than I care to admit, and they refuse to admit that they may not be adequately equipped/staffed to handle the needs of my child.

It goes without saying, that family comes first.  And while I continue to work on these issues, I may find it necessary to slack somewhat on more non-essential forms of communication.  

I do have assistance with the shop, so those of you who are clientele will NOT see any disruption to the service you've come to expect from FiberDoodles by K4TT. I will still be available to help, should the need arise and patterns (new and older) will still be available to you for purchase in the shop.  However, this blog and my *new* FaceBook page(s) may be a little slower to update.  In addition, orders handled by 'staff', may not seem as personal as you have come accustomed to.

I have built a good rapport with many of my loyal clientele base - which is why I am writing to you this morning.  While I am trying to run my small shop - I also feel as if I owe it to my clientele to disclose this 'personal' information.
Thank you for your continued support during this time.

New KISS Members & Questions 2B Answered

In one fail swooping into my online DoodleWorld - I am going to try to accomplish a few things, in a very limited time. (and apparently upset the blogger spelling/grammer check - as it just lit the entire last section with a red line.. hee hee)

First Up:
Anyone who watches my etsy Shop knows that the KISS Series has a total of 8 critters with a few more on the way.
Turtle, Lion, Elephant, Reindeer (pictured above) 
Zebra, Giraffe, Piglet, Monkey
I've had a lot of positive feedback on them and they work up so quickly, they'd make perfect Holiday gifts in no time flat.

I've received a few messages on ravelry (sorry it took me so long to get to you, I rarely log into ravelry anymore), on etsy and via email regarding selling of the finished items made from my patterns.
There are restrictions, but YES, you may sell your finished items.  

The RESTRICTIONS are as follows:  
 - You may NOT sell on etsy or ebay - this is in direct competition with me and there is no wiggle room. 
 - While a link back would be greatly appreciated, it is not required.  However, you MUST let your buyer know that you are NOT affiliated with FiberDoodles by K4TT.  You are NOT an authorized agent of FiberDoodles by K4TT and that FiberDoodles by K4TT is to be held harmless of any purchases made between you and your buyer.
 - You MUST use your own photographs of your own finished works.  My photographs remain my own intellectual property and are only online to help aide in your decision to purchase a pattern, to help you complete a doodle and/or to sell one of my own completed doodles. 

and finally.. Third:
I've received a handful of etsy messages asking if I will offer a 'sale' or 'group rate' for several patterns.
The short answer.. "NO"
The longer answer.. before I list any of my patterns, I research to see if there is anything online similar in structure, complexity and design quality.  I figure in the costs of replacing the yarn used to create a pattern, the cost in which to list/sell (etsy) and receive payment pattern (paypal), then derive a fair price based on that.  I do NOT mark up patterns, so therefore there is really no deals to make.

This also keeps all things fair and unbias.  I have regular clientele who purchase patterns the day they are listed - others who wait until they have a better view on monthly finances.  Keeping a low cost and fair pricing policy across the board is the only way to avoid sour feelings.

Kindest Regards,
