We are launching small with a biggie organic bag and M&Co. logo pin as the branding. All wrapped up in craft paper and stamped with our logo.

Getting samples from the vendor at work on Monday and based on that, hopefully the art will be done by then in order to send out to print.

We are looking at at a December 13th-16th production deadline.

The FB account is nice and healthy with 657 people and 384 members. That is 930 networks of people as far as I am concerned. Oh and the beauty is that customink (our vendor) has a facebook upload feature. Not sure if we will use it directly but can surely do one ourselves.

Moving along and feel we have momentum.

on our marvelous way...

Now that we have selected the first round of products, finalizing art and found great vendors... we are on our way to launching this by xmas time.

Hoping to expand early next year and might have more products developed by then to go into market via other retailers.

oh and I found out the secret to not getting kicked off Facebook. Don't register your account with a cell phone. The annoying thing is that they make you put in one of those codes EVERY TIME you want to add someone. They are rather amusing combination of words so I started saving them. Not sure how to use them yet but maybe they inspire artwork names. Inspiration comes in all forms ;) Oh and we are over 300 members on our FB Group page. By the time we roll this out, we will have a great network of people to advertise to.

Thinking of starting a contest. Have people vote for their most Marvelous friend and they can win a prize package which will be announced at our kick off. People love that stuff. Voting is always an interesting way to find out what people think too.
