Before I go further into release news, I have two more announcement: We are adding a Boutique to our shop! The Boutique will include curated items commonly used by myself and the team. Boutique items will include Zig Markers, Color Bursts, Nuvo Drops and other crafting essentials (in my opinion) that are not Ton branded but just as fabulous. Our Boutique will be open by Thursday! We hope you’ll check out the Boutique section in case you need to pick up additional crafting supplies.
For our second announcement, we have upgraded to a headache free Wishlist app on our shop site. It’s now very easy to add shop items to a wishlist and to also retrieve your list later on.
