Project Update: A first look? πŸ‘€

Big news critters! I had my fingers crossed we'd get a plush update this week and my manufacturer really came through.

As expected many of them still need some tweaks, but they also look better than I was anticipating for a first look! Thornheart is virtually finished, and Cosmic Beez only needs a material swap on their badge and star to be totally perfect.

Attaching them all with my notes in case you're curious about what each one goes through on their way to becoming an official snughoul!



Poor Glitter Moon got a bit of a raw deal compared to the others, but that's okay-- I'm sure the next pass will look much closer to the concept art πŸ’–

Project Update: That's a wrap!! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

Wow wow wow, almost 92k!! Thank you so much critters, and as usual I will hit the ground running so I can send everything off to production ASAP! πŸ™

In the meantime I'd like share a brief timeline that covers the next few weeks, so you know what to expect-- if you backed series 2 this will all sound very familiar and if you're new here I hope this clears up any lingering confusion!

Week 1 - Payments take about 2 weeks to process. While this is happening I will be working on getting surveys and the preorder store ready to go live. The preorder store will probably launch by next week, but if you already backed please wait for your survey to add more items! Otherwise you'll be charged twice for shipping and that's no fun.

Week 2 - By the end of this week surveys should be almost ready to launch! Usually a smoke test is performed to make sure everything is working correctly (a small percentage of surveys are sent out and responses are collected and monitored for around 24 hours), and then the bulk go out if everything looks good.

Week 2 to 4 (and onward) - I usually follow a two week update schedule unless more exciting stuff happens in between. These are pretty much just progress reports so you know where we're at on prototyping and all that fun stuff!

I do recommend at least skimming them though because I also share important dates this way and address questions I see popping up frequently.

Late May to June - The preorder store and surveys should close around this time. If you added any items onto your pledge or placed a preorder, this is when you'll be charged for these items. I don't have a concrete closure date right now (prototyping is pretty nebulous that way) but I will share one at least two weeks in advance.Β 


I think that just about covers all the most important milestones! SO looking forward to sharing some prototype photos with you all within the next week or so. We've got quite the eclectic bunch of snughouls coming up and I just know they're going to look incredible πŸ’–Β

Project Update: Only a few hours to go! ✨

Good morning critters!

With just a few hours to go I wanted to squeeze in one more thank you for the incredible turnout, and a final hoorah of sorts by unlocking Dragon Fruit Bat a little early! I'm kind of in awe we're almost at 90k already, and know 100k is all but guaranteed over the next month and some change of prototyping so it just makes sense!


Remember the bug friend pin set is unlocked too, so it will also be available on the survey sent out later this month!

And finally I just want to reiterate that there will be a preorder window after the campaign, so don't fret or put yourself in a financial bind if you can't afford everything you want right now. You'll have the opportunity to edit your survey and add items through most of May and potentially into June πŸ’–

Project Update: 6th Snughoul Unlocked! And Creature Feature: AuDHD Creatures ✨

Whoohoo critters!

We finally hit the 80k mark, meaning a 6th snughoul plush is UNLOCKED! Not only that but Rosy Maple made a stunning comeback in the polls so it looks like they'll be the one joining us first!

Remember if we hit 100k, I'll add Dragon Fruit Bat as well. I don't think it's out of the realm of possibility, both before the campaigns official ending or after, during the preorder phase!Β 
Β 
We should also be getting a plushie update this week, and I'm looking forward to the boost of engagement that will trigger πŸ’–


Now time for the last creature feature while the campaign is live!Β 

I'm SO excited to announce I'll be providing some guest art for AuDHD Creatures, a gorgeous and adorable collection of plushies with colors based on a variety of disabilities and conditions.Β 

I volunteered to draw Ash, the anxiety bunny moth! As someone who has dealt with anxiety all my life, it was an honor to draw them and be part of this project in some small way. You'll soon be able to grab both these designs as a pin, and charm/sticker respectively!Β

Congratulations to Evan for yet another incredibly successful campaign! Some mindblowing achievements of this campaign: -#1 most funded campaign in all of Pintopia -Third most funded campaign of all the ones live on the WHOLE site (as of right before ending) -2nd largest number of backers in all of Pintopia -Despite being only 0.8% of all Pintopia (1 campaign out of 121), it contributed over 1000 of the total 23,000 backers, and $91,745 of the total $972,735 in funding (Just under 10%!!!) I feel like Snughouls is a cult classic on it’s way to becoming a cultural icon. Thank you everyone for contributing and thank you Evan for continuously making cool stuff for us to love, obsess over, and spend all our money on πŸ˜‚

Project Update: Seagull and Kakapo available

Good evening, jailbirds.

Short update incoming, a family issue is taking me away from writing anything funny today. But, I promised. Let's keep this short and sweet.

I have sent off BIRD CRIMES proofs to the factory for a final quote and a sample to test the finicky sepia tones and their added white tints.

Even with all our stretch goals, freebies, and packaging included, fulfilling all pledges as purchased would not even amount to 25% of raised funds.

Manufacturing estimates were based on industry standard for similar pins, and were laughably high compared to what I am actually paying. Including my half of the Pintopia freebies, the vinyl sticker sheet, and shipping supplies, our actual fund usage for BIRD CRIMES would be just below $3000. This would include about 400 stock pins, too. Labor, of course, also costs money, but not $10,000 money.

In the spirit of complete transparency, I do not feel this is fair when we had some much-hyped designs that are technically not available yet. So, I'm making them available.

The KAKAPO and SEAGULL crimes will be available as choices during the backer survey.

Backers will be able to select either of these designs for pins and MUGSHOTS stickers.

Surveys are expected on-schedule, if early. I am waiting until the 23rd to send smoke tests to wait for some declined cards to be fixed.

United Kingdom backers should be getting emails between tonight and Monday.

Thanks, jailbirds. Take it easy. Happy Friday.
