Title: - 2 - hammock cubes still available
Post by: Violet976 on February 20, 2009, 01:06:43 PM
Times are getting tough, so I'm trying every resource ;) I still have two cube hammocks available.  8"x8"x8". Hammocks hang with large safety pins & colored shower curtain rings, as persistent chewers always seem to eat through the straps. ;)
Available:
-Blue insect hammock with lime green bottom & back, lined with orange. (Fleece inside & out) SOLD
-Patchwork dragonfly/flower hammock, lined with peach. (Fleece inside and out) SOLD
(JUST ADDED) - Patchwork colorful insects/cats play print, lined with orange fleece. (Cotton outside/Fleece inside) SOLD
(JUST ADDED) - Christmas Penguins lined with candy cane fleece. (Cotton outside/Fleece inside) SOLD
(Please note the patchwork owl/frog hammock & flat hammock pictured are taken - Jasper and Tajo claimed one)

SOLD

How do they hang?

I'd like to get the insect one... Can you tell me how much it would be parcel post to zip 33071?  Thanks!
Title: Re: two hammock cubes still available
Post by: Violet976 on February 20, 2009, 06:59:01 PM
Malexis:  I choose to hang mine with large safety pins & then colored shower curtain rings (I have a ferret nation & like them to hang lower), as all the rats I've had have been very bad at chewing the straps.

Libitnia: I checked with the post office today. Parcel post to your zip code would be $4.55, however, first class will cost $2.53. I also wanted to show you the bottom/back of the hammock to show you the lime green (It is a very bright, boy themed hammock, kind of makes me think of a comic book type theme) I also just added photos above of a patchwork insects/cats play hammock & a Christmas Penguin hammock I just finished. If you would like a different one instead, just let me know which one.  :) I typically arrange payments through paypal, so if you would like one the total would be $12.53. Let me know, and thanks again for your interest.

OoooooOOOoooo.....  I really like the patchwork insect/cats one you just added!  So if i wanted that one with priority mail the total would be $12.53 still, right?

I'll take which ever one you have left. I don't know surprise me. I'l take parcel shipping. I think thats cheapest to 85023. You take paypal?
Title: Re: - 3 - hammock cubes still available
Post by: Violet976 on February 26, 2009, 12:57:12 PM
Libitnia: I have received your payment and will have your colorful insect/playful cats hammock out tomorrow. Thanks again & I hope your rats enjoy it!

Mischief Mistress: I actually just bought some new fabric and was planning on making new hammocks. If you would like to see the fabric available and design your own, I would be happy to PM you the link to the fabric photos. Otherwise I can pick something out myself and surprise you (Let me know if for boys/girls)  :) Also, when I checked on shipping, parcel post for Libitnia was actually $4.55 while priority was $2.53, but i will check on your zip code tomorrow when I mail Libitnias out. Let me know if you would like to pick your own fabric and what you would like, if I know today, I can get it in the mail saturday. Thanks again.

Dearpie:  Thanks. Yes, first class is $2.53, parcel was quoted $4.55, and flat rat priority was of course $4.95. I'm still getting this whole shipping class thing down (i keep thinking of first class as priority non flat rate) ;) Thanks for catching that though. :BlueDumboSmile:

Do you just poke the saftey pin through the fabric or have you added a loop? sorry im a little confused
Title: Re: Introducing The Rat Stash - Handmade gifts for fuzzy friends!
Post by: Violet976 on March 04, 2009, 04:29:33 PM
Malexis:  No problem, that is a common question & I guess I haven't been able to address it clearly. All hammocks can be purchased with either your choice of the traditional sewn in loops or large safety pins/colored rings. People who own rats that are persistent chewers are advised to choose the safety pin/colored ring method of hanging as they can't chew through. I put the safety pin through the corner & then attach a coordinated colored ring (usually blue, pink or green). I will post some with loops shortly.  :BlueDumboSmile:

Every hammock comes delivered with the purchasers chosen option.
Hope that helps! If you have further questions, just let me know!  :)

Title: Re: The Rat Stash - Updated: NEW DESIGN! Home of "The Rat Bungalow!"
Post by: Violet976 on March 14, 2009, 01:58:10 AM
majikbabygirl I can certainly modify it for you! Did you want the same fabric eyes for the bungalow bottom, or did you want something else? I currently have a purple fabric with haunted castles & ghosts, a brown fabric with owls, a colorful trick or treat fabric with black cats, ghosts, candy corn etc, a beige fabric with dragons, & a black fabric with scary pumpkins. I think all could match the scary eyes theme. i can send you a photo of any fabric if they sound like something you might want as the bottom. Also let me know if you want the loops for hanging or the safety pin/colored ring method (for bad chewers). Once I know what you want I can modify it in few hours and send it out once payment is received!

AnimalHobby Thanks for the compliment. Your products & ideas are wonderful as well, I've been eyeing your threads with awe. I have a few more tricks up my sleeve, but I want to release all the new ideas at once, so I'm waiting til i have a surplus built up. My heart goes out to you again for all the wonderful care you've been providing to Yuki. We are all waiting anxiously to see how her recovery goes. (I'm assuming there's an eye removal surgery in her near future, if I read correctly). Please let me know when that is scheduled, as I would really like to help out for that as well.

I will definitely let you know when we schedule that. I haven't even got an estimate from the vet yet. I'm almost scared to hear how much it will cost.  :-\ I am hoping the meds will do the trick quickly. :)

I just wanted to say a proper thank you to everyone who has supported The Rat Stash so far. I cannot express how grateful I am for your generous support. While I absolutely adore making hammocks, you all have helped to ease the unexpected financial hardships that have occurred recently with Jaspers final battles & his eventual passing, as well as the surprise Mr. Ms. Minx had in store for us (She has her spay on monday, everyone think good thoughts for her!). Times have been very hard here as of late, and each and every one of you has helped to ease the burden tremendously! Thanks to everyone for the purchases, the advice, and most of all, the support that has been offered from such a fantastic community.

(Who would have thought such tiny creatures could bring together so many caring people?) Seriously though, you guys are exceptional!!!

PnutLuv: Thank you so much! I'm so glad you like it. Christmas, huh? wow, my boys would never leave a hammock in its natural state for any real length of time, but at least they love them while they can. As for the corners, I've learned to sew my sides until just slight of the corners edge for the best result (you can turn mine inside out and see). I find if I sew all the way to the end, the corners bunch funny. It's such a learning curve, but I'm glad to hear my work is satisfactory  ;D It'll be nice to see photos of other people's rats in my hammies for a change!  :BlueDumboSmile:

Hello!  I'm new here - thanks for telling me about this site when I ordered the great Halloween hammock cube!
My boys haven't left it alone except to eat or get attention since they got it. :)
My daughter has a name suggestion for your new design:

Ratty Buddy Bundle

My suggestions are:

The Cootie Catcher (looks like those paper cootie catchers kids wear on their hands to count out silly answers on)
or
The Ratty Rowdy Rollup

Thanks! :)

Wow, you guys have been busy since I've been away! A day and a half everyone, keep those great ideas coming! Also, since there seems to be some interest already in the new design, I'm going to temporarily accept some custom orders with the new fabric I have available (keep in mind my fabric is very limited, so first come first serve. I'll try to keep this as smooth as possible since I've never done custom orders). Please have second choices in mind in case availability runs low, and feel free to mix and match your design!!! I am going to make a hold list, since the winner of the Name Contest will get first pick over all available fabrics. Then I will work my way down the hold list & contact each next in line to take their custom order from all remaining fabric available.

Here is an ordered list of those who have shown interest:
(Please let me know if you'd like to be taken off the list/put on the list, I will work my way down the list after the winner has chosen their fabric).

-RachelnJoe?
-Nightmelody
-Hugosmom
-DorseyClairebelle



Available Fabrics!!! (http://www.flickr.com/photos/scarletnotion/sets/72157615908589934/)

& remember, all  PREMADES (http://www.freewebs.com/theratstash/apps/photos/) are still available as well!

Pricing (S&H Included):
-Cube Hammocks are $16
-Summer Bungalows (Thinner fleece) are $17
-Winter Bungalows (Thicker fleece) are $20
-New Unnamed Design is $20

Ok everyone, I know the contest is ending in less than two days & I just want to let you know that I will be on here sporadically for the next few days as little minxie has her spay friday & its two hours away to get there (everyone wish good rattie thoughts for her). So if I lag on my replies, that's why. I'm getting into that nervous rat mom part of the procedure...

MeowSaysTheRat: I believe the Funhouse is AnimalHobby's, if I'm not mistaken. (Forgive me if I misread your comment, I'm going braindead with the spay anxiety...)

majikbabygirl: PM'd you with some information. Since you've been such a great customer I'd love to work with you to taylor an order just for you! But the frog Bungalow is definitely available if you want it. (Let me know & I'll send you a Paypal request)  :BlueDumboSmile:

Hugosmom: I added you to the hold list. I'm so glad your ratties love their hammocks, & thanks so much for the great photos. Your boys are to die for! & yes, they are quite big boys! & I'm so happy you found your way to Goosemoose. I think you'll find yourself just overwhelmed by such a wealth of rat resources it provides!

eclaim: I wasn't sure if you wanted to be on the hold list or not. Please let me know if I put you there by mistake  :-\

AnimalHobby: Yuki has been in my thoughts since that little girl first popped up on goosemoose! I'm just happy she ended up with someone like you, and that she has so much fight in her. Let me know if you need any more help towards vet funds!

Post by: AnimalHobby on March 25, 2009, 11:00:48 PM
You are so sweet!  :BlueDumboSmile:

I think we are all set on vet funds for now, at least as long as we don't need surgery. I'm building up my vet fund and my cage fund so I can get friends for Yuki, too.

Thank you for all your support!

Sending good watty vibes and cookies to your wittle Minxie.  :heart:  :cookie:

Hello!  Good vibes for Minx recovering from her spay! :)
I'd love to get a new design hammock for my boys out of the #16 ghoul print, if you have enough when it's my turn - can you tell Halloween's my favorite holiday?
Oh, another thought on the name for the new design:
The Labyrinth

Hugosmom: I have quite a bit of that fabric so I don't think it will be any problem. Thanks so much for the good thoughts for minxies spay. We leave a little before 5am tomorrow and the anxiety is really starting to kick in. Literally everything has gone wrong in terms of getting this done, so I'm hoping if she's not supposed to have the spay due to something bad happening, the car will break down on the way or something.  Doesn't it figure that the spay would be scheduled for the same day the contest ends, I'm going to be a mess all day... Thanks so much for thinking of her though, and hopefully this time tomorrow we'll be on our way home happy as clams.  :BlueDumboSmile:

Minxie's made it through her spay! Thanks to everyone for all the encouragement & support. She's resting quietly in her travel cage, & that's everything we could ask for after a week like this.

Also, just a reminder to everyone that the New Design Name Contest ends Tonight at Midnight, so get those last minute votes in!

We also added some New Fabrics (http://www.flickr.com/photos/scarletnotion/sets/72157615908589934/) to choose from for custom orders, so please let me know if you would like to be added to the wait list for custom orders (first come, first serve for fabric availability).


majikbabygirl: I'm sending you a PM to make sure you still want the frog bungalow (as I've just added new frogs, monkeys & mice to my available fabrics!). Let me know if you'd like another design instead!


Here are a few new available fabrics: See All Fabrics Here! (http://www.flickr.com/photos/scarletnotion/sets/72157615908589934/)

Ok, the winner of the Name Design Contest has been decided. You guys definitely made it tough, but there was one that stood out to us as complimenting out current Rat Bungalow the best. Without further wait, the winner of the name design contest is...

rattie_abbi for suggesting "The Cozy Cavern"!!!

Rattie-Abbi: I absolutely adore the name, & think it fits the new design perfectly! Congratulations, you've just won a free hammock of any design of your choice! Please let me know if you want a premade, or if you want to design your own from our available fabrics. I will PM you as well to see what you would like. Thanks again for such a great name!

I also wanted to note my thanks for so many responses. We were overwhelmed with choices, but I just wanted to note that 3 other people made it very hard. We struggled between Cavy Carnage's "Happy Camper", HugosMom's "Ratty Buddy Bundle", & let me just tell you, AnimalHobby really put us in a twist with "The Wedgy". Seriously, if I wasn't afraid of people being funny enough to let it hinder sales, you would have had it in the bag. I thought it was fantastic. But that's me  :yelcutelaugh: I would like to offer all three of you $3 off your next order if you'd like!

OK everyone, Cozy Caverns are now officially available!!! Anyone who would like to be on the wait list for any custom fabric orders, please let me know & I will add you on.

To everyone currently on the wait list, please PM me the following information:

-which type of hammock/hammocks you would like to order.
-If you want a premade or a custom fabric hammock.
-if you want a custom, your first & second fabric choices. (remember, you can do a solid hammock, or mix and match all sections as follows):


Cube Hammocks: let me know which fabric you would like for sides - top/bottom - front/back - or a different choice for all 6 sides!

Bungalows: same as cube hammocks, but you can also choose your fabric for the bungalow bottom!


Cozy Caverns:
let me know which fabric you would like for top - each side - middle (can have up to 4 different fabric choices!)

Thanks so much you guys for sharing those! I still can't believe how big Hugo & Tuxedo look in those pictures. Are they middle aged or older rats? They make my past big boys seem so small  :yelcutelaugh: & Hugosmom, I got your Ghouls Cavern done. I will post pictures today when I wake up again, but I am pretty sure they are going to love it! & I agree, Whiteout is a very unusual name, but I really like it (I added Whiteout & Merlon's photos to the site, thanks so much!). It's such a relief to see the rats actually get the idea of the bungalows! I can't wait til Minxies healed & big enough for their ferret nation so I can finally give my rats a bungalow & cavern. (right now they are separated in two small travel cages for fear of Verdell tearing her sutures. The poor boy is having an absolute hormonal attack at the loss of his newfound female). Men  :P

Everyone who placed orders, I have two left to get ready & then they'll be off. I will post photos of the orders before I ship them off today. I sent messages to anyone who hasn't paid yet, so if you didn't receive the PM let me know & I'll get your invoice to you so I can get your hammocks shipped out today  :BlueDumboSmile:

Wow!  We're so excited to get our new hammock - it looks even better than I imagined.  The orange fleece really pops the black & white ghoul design, and will match our pumpkin/flames cube great.  I'm still in shock about how fast you got it done - you're good, girl! :)  That pic made my morning.
Yeah, Hugo & Tux are huge.  They're 8 inches long, without adding the tail.  They're 1 1/2 year old.  I've had a few rattie folks see them and think they must be older than they are (we take them with us to pet stores occasionally).  I just say they must be part mastiff.:)  I got them from a pet store, so don't know what breeder they came from originally.  We're lucky enough to have a pet store in town that sells pet rats & supplies for them.  I didn't go there expecting to get baby rats, but feel in love with these guys. :)
Thanks! :)

Just got my cozy cavern today, and my daughter and I both said "It SPARKLES!" when I pulled it out of the package.  That's so cool!  I didn't realize the ghoul material has sparklies in it from the pic. :)
We love it, of course, but not as much as Tuxedo does.  I put it right in the cage, and took out the pumpkin/flames cube for a washing.  Tuxedo jumped right in and explored (Hugo is my timid boy; takes him a bit to warm up to anything new).  We noticed Hugo pouting on his igloo waiting for the return of "his" cube, so Jess took him out to hang with her while it dried.  Tux wouldn't come down from his new cavern to join them!  He REALLY likes it! LOL!
Now the cube is back, and they are each hanging out in one.  Happy rats! :)
Thanks,
Ann

It's so nice! I can't wait to clean the cage now!!!!  :BlueDumboSmile:
My boys will love it!

Here's the boys tonight - each on their own hammock.   Right after this, Hugo started exploring the new cavern, but tried to keep one half of him on the cube as he did (after all, I did take it away for an hour to clean it).  Now he's finally joined his brother Tuxedo on the new cavern and they're both bruxing away.  AWWW!!!!

Tux's rex fur sticks up so he looks like he has bed-head over his whole body. :)

 :hyper: Oh my goodness! You guys got those quick! I'm so glad to see the rats get the caverns. They look so cute in your cages, too! The colors on your cages really pop.
Rattie_Abbi: You're rats are so big & pretty! Its so funny, I've always had big boys, but now that my boy and girl are babies I'm forgetting how big they get! I absolutely love the names. & their cage looks so nice & soft. What is that padded yellow layer on the top? EDIT: OMG yogi-bear? did I totally miss that the first time round? that is too cute!
Hugosmom: So nice to see Hugo & Tuxedo again! I was wondering about the fur before, I suppose the rex explains it. I believe minx is a rex (curly whiskers, wavy hair), I'm so excited to see a preview of what she might look like! & I'm relieved to see that your big boys fit nicely into their cavern. Now hopefully washtime will be a bit easier  :cheeky:

I'm so glad the ratties all approve!! Now I'm jealous, time to whip some up for mine. i'm putting minx & verdell in their ferret nation monday after her sutures come out. Finally, new hammock time! Thanks so much for all the great photos. You're rats are just adorable!

Ok everyone, introducing my pride & joy! New Rat Candle Wall Sconces!
I have been working on designing & making these for over two months, & finally they are ready to be unveiled! I absolutely love them, so if you don't snatch them up, I'll be happy to keep a few!
:BlueDumboSmileTongue:

(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3378/3418707795_0fec1613e5.jpg)

These unique, hand-fashioned wall sconces are made out of beautiful Western Red Cedar, hand stained, and finished with brass accents. As each sconce is made completely by hand, no two are exactly the same, & each have their own unique characteristics! While they look beautiful during the day, they also cast a fantastic eerie rat shadow on the wall at night when lit with a tealight candle!

Each Sconce is $35 (S&H Included)
*Parcel post shipping is included in every price, & can be upgraded to Priority shipping for an additional $2.*

I currently have 5 available, so first come, first serve! If you want a set with matching stain (not identical, as none turn out exactly alike) just let me know!

For you, majikbabygirl, anything!  :poke: I do believe I will continue to do custom orders for as long as people seem to want to place them. I currently have requests including the frogs, lizards, & monkeys, so if you want me to put anything on hold for you to ensure your fabric doesn't run out, just let me know (I think you're in the clear though, I'm still just getting used to this custom ordering & keeping track of my fabric). It's definitely more fun though!
I'll be on the lookout for your next ratter patter order!

Nightmelody: so far the main update seems to be the new sconces. Those little buggers took me forever to finish, so now I'm just waiting to see what people think. We're you looking for any type of particular update, or just checking in? By the way, how did your ratties take to the Rubber Ducky Cavern? I never would have thought of that combo, & that one was a hard one to let go of  :BlueDumboSmile: I'll be starting on your hammocks today. You still want the bungalow in colorful plaid/love monkeys/swirly flowers, & the cavern in the green butterflies/pink paisley & maroon fleece, correct? I just want to be sure I don't jumble your order. Also, I'm going to be adding a "wide load" to my cavern size, where each piece will measure about 9"x16", did you want to try that one out this time (no additional charge), or stick to the standard size of about 7"x12.5".
Title: Re: NEW RAT WALL SCONCES! - The Rat Stash - Caverns & Bungalows - Sale & New Fabrics
Post by: Nightmelody on April 07, 2009, 01:23:33 PM
yes, thats correct, and I really won't mind even if it does get jumbled.  :BlueDumboSmile: I am going down to my parents house to pick up the cavern today and will post pics when they love it. was just checking in... i find that if i go too long without checking the things i want to watch, it falls out of my routine and out of mind... not good. hmm. wide load.. I would love to, but don't know if it would fit in my cage well... let me see how the ducks fit and will post this evening to let you know. Thanks!

Post by: Violet976 on April 07, 2009, 07:44:51 PM
Rattie_abbi: oh my goodness. It's horrible, but I laughed, because that is exactly how I feel with my ratties. Since being separated after the spay, the have eaten every hammock, to shreds, that I put in there. I'm so sorry, at least is was a freebie  :-\ I would tell you to buy another one, but we know how the poor thing would end up...

Betti_page: Paypal is outstanding. I got your email, and will send your invoice out in just a moment. It will ship parcel post, but if you want it quicker you will need to add $2 for the priority. Parcel post never seems to take too long, though.

createwithnikki: If you click on my banner below, you can see all of my available premades that are ready to ship asap. Also, the first post of this thread shows all available hammocks as well. I'm sure there are some girlie ones, but if you get a custom order in & paid for tonight, I can most likely get it sewn up and out tomorrow. My available fabrics are  HERE (http://www.flickr.com/photos/scarletnotion/sets/72157615908589934/), & you can mix and match any fabrics to create your own custom hammock! I will check here throughout the night, so just let me know! Keep in mind my standard cubes/bungalows are 8"x8"x8", so if you wanted a larger one for a ferret you would have to order it upsized (10"x10"10" for $3 more, 12"x12"x12" for $5 more) the 12x12 is huge, by the way. :yelcutelaugh:

Got my stuff! Hung both this evening when i cleaned the cage, but the crew is at the vet because 3 girls are getting spayed between tonight and thurs night, and everyone else has to go along for the ride because I can't separate mine for more than 12 hours before i have serious fights on reintroduction.  ??? so I will try and post pics of them just in the empty cage this evening, and with the ratlets enjoying them friday morning when everyone comes home again.

createwithnikki That is very sweet of you to offer. I will PM you to discuss it further  :BlueDumboSmile: I'm also halfway through your order, so it will definitely ship tomorrow & I'll put photos up beforehand for you! The first one is really cute!

Nightmelody: Glad you got them ok. Wow, that really sounds like quite the ordeal to get them spayed. I'll be thinking happy ratty spay thoughts for them. I'm happy you found a vet willing to go along with that, they must just like getting to watch the whole bunch romp around for awhile! Don't sweat it over the pics, you just focus on getting the rattums through the whole ordeal of the spaying for now! Best wishes!

Its no big deal. Dr Rachel Loves my kids, and so do most of the techs, and I work there.... soooo yeah. I will be there tonight and tomorrow night, and will be the surgery Tech for both that will be spayed tomorrow. Alice's went great last night. Aura and Esme are scheduled for Thurs. Also, Dr Rachel has other rat families that bring the whole crew along for mass removals, spays, whatever, so i guess I am not the only one with aggression issues, though I might post a thread about it on here and see if that's common.
also, here's the pic of them hanging! I am thinking the wide load one would be cool, especially if they all want to pile in, but i will have to hang more hooks, which i needed to do anyway.  ;D so yeah, that would give me incentive to get the hooks done... thanks!

Nightmelody: You're too cute! I don't mind though, cuz I finally get to see some of your rattums! I have to say, those colors look great with them, fantastic choice! Lucy looks so tiny, is she one of the ones getting a spay? I feel your pain on the photo taking, I can't seem to get my newbies to hold still either, and the camera delay always tips the little buggers off... Those pics are adorable! I'm going to snag them up for the website, if you don't mind.  :BlueDumboSmileTongue: Ha, that pocket hammie is so tiny, but I'm glad to see they still like it!

 :poke: stop with the fantastic fabrics already! killin me, seriously. i LOVE the bottom two!  sheesh. I will try to hold out though, I still need to measure out my stuff.

Lucy was 260 grams when i weighed them all Monday. She is actually my largest female. lol. She did however weigh as much as 340 at one time!  :eek: serious squish there. She is in much better shape now with a feminine figure!  :yelcutelaugh: Emmett in the 2nd pic is about 220 grams, and growing fast. He gained 30 grams in 2 weeks last i weighed him.

Ok, I've been toying with a new design idea, and rigged up a mockup today. Let me know what you guys think. It is a rectangular cube hammock, with openings on each side. There is also an opening in the bottom that gives access to the tunnel hammock underneath (I meant for the tunnel at the bottom to be larger, and I believe I want the hole leading to it a bit more towards the middle. & please disregard the mixed color fleece or loose stitching, I used scraps in case it was botched). I'm thinking of calling it "The Peek-A-Boo Playhouse". Let me know if theres any interest in having it available as a regular item!

I'm thinking they'll be priced at $30 regularly (with the larger tunnel, of course), but for a limited time, I'll give a "rattum tester" price of $20 to the first 5 people *only 1 left at this price!* who would like to be the first to try one! measures approx. 14"x8" & should hang about 10".

*As minxie is now fully recovered from her spay, I'll be putting them in the FN cage today, so hopefully I'll get some ratty tester photos for you shortly!!!*

 :BlueDumboSmile: Alrighty then, the total would be the discounted $20 price, and you can choose from any fabrics in our  Available Fabrics Here (http://www.flickr.com/photos/scarletnotion/sets/72157615908589934/). You can mix and match all sides of the cube and the bottom tunnel as well (7 possible fabrics can be used!) Just go ahead and PM me or email me with your choices, and let me know which paypal address you'd like the invoice sent to.

Hi! I loved the dragon print you had up in the beginning of your thread! Do you have any more of that? Or can you find any more dragon prints that cute?? Do you do liners? I have zero/nothing like that for my ratties and they need it!

betti_page: Yay! I'm so glad you like it! We currently have all the rest of the premade sconces hanging around the house, they're so much fun to look at! If you want another one, you just let me know. I can also make you one in a matching stain, facing either direction you choose.  You just let me know if & when he needs a buddy  :BlueDumboSmile:

RatletLover: I'm so happy you like it, I absolutely adore patchworks, so it was a lot of fun to make! Let me know what your rattums think when they get their hands on it!

sigalayho: I actually do have enough of the dragon print on tan to make one more cube or one more bungalow if you'd like! I also went to Joanns and tried to search for dragons, but the only prints I found were one dragon & one adorable seahorse print I just couldn't pass up (pictured below). Let me know if you'd like to order a cube or bungalow in the original dragon print or anything in the new one (or mix & match if you'd like!) I don't currently make liners as I enjoy making the hammocks more, but I know there are some great liner makers in our Pack Rat Swap Meet that do!

TWO NEW FABRICS ADDED!:

Hugosmom: I'm halfway through yours, so I'll definitely have a photo up tomorrow! & I had a few scraps of fabrics that matched your previous orders, so I just had to throw in a few extras for Hugo & Tux, just to spoil them for being such good testers!  :wink5: I'm so happy to hear your rats like the HT lab blocks. I was hesitant at first to make the switch, but all my rats have loved them so far as well. & I definitely feel better feeding it to them!

RatletLover: Can't wait to hear how they like it. I saw some photos of your rats on another thread, absolutely adorable! They're hairless or somewhat hairless, right? Too cute!

betti_page: I'm so happy you like it! It should be there in a jiffy, I'm shipping everything out monday morning! Thanks again for helping to test out the new design! Any and all feedback is appreciated so I can get it just right!

hmmm. I don't know why I thought you already had hairless rats. Must be going braindead from all the sewing  :yelcutelaugh: Sounds like you're gonna need extra soft fleece on fleece hammocks (though, it being summer, you may not have to worry about that right away!)  :BlueDumboSmile:

Since orders are slow, I'm finally getting some time to work on the sets I wanted to offer. I'm thinking 1 bungalow, 1 cavern, 1 tunnel hammock, 1 pocket hammock & 1 flat hammock for $50 total. I was going to start with an Under Water theme, unless someone else wants a set & has a special request on a theme (I'm thinking of doing themes more than all matching hammocks, so each set has a nice variation to it). If anyone has a request, let me know. Otherwise I'll start on the Under Water set!  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:

RatletLover: wow, I would freeze if our house stayed that cold! Well if you ever need some fleece on fleece hammocks just let me know. I can even make a run to JoAnns if you're ever looking for any patterns in particular.

Cavy Carnage: Ha, I knew someone had thought up the Peek-A-Boo Palace, but I never remembered to look up who. I'll tell you what, since you inspired the name, I'll give you one free! Sounds like a fair trade!!! Thanks for reminding me! Just let me know what you'd like & I'll get started on it for you!  :cheeky: Since they're still in the test phase, your ratties can help let me know what needs to be modified as well!

Just let me know what you'd like & I'll get started on it for you!  :cheeky: Since they're still in the test phase, your ratties can help let me know what needs to be modified as well!



That wasn't a hint lol. But a big thank you for the offer. I am happy to pay shipping on it if you would like! I only have one girl and she is picky when it comes to hammocks so I couldn't decide if I really should buy one especially since I am so broke :yelcutelaugh: but she loves cubes. Well I will let you know my fabric selection today or tomorrow.

Wow thank you so much!

Now before I change my mind again can I please have the whole cube in # 56 (seahorses and turtles) and then the hammock under in #5 (blue playful teardrops). I wasn't sure if I am meant to pick the inner fleece color. If so pink but if you pick just something that goes  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:

Oh, our playhouse is so cute!  Can't wait to get it and see the boys in it.  I figured they're secure enough in their masculinity to handle the flowers.  LOL!  It looks perfect for their cage with the modifications you made.  And thanks so much for the extras - can't wait to see! :)

Post by: Violet976 on April 20, 2009, 03:00:47 PM
Cheerio: Thanks for your interest! Right now I only have one standard size, but I think a playhouse could probably handle 3 boys. I can always adjust the measurements some if you'd like a little more room for them to run around. (I just made Hugosmoms playhouse shorter in height, so customizing hammocks is almost always an option!). For three boys though, I would recommend snuggle flannel as it has more stability overall. I know I don't have my fabric types labeled yet, but if you let me know what you'd like, I'll let you know if I think it will be stable enough for three manly rats!  :BlueDumboSmile:

Edit: All flannel has been labeled accordingly! Playhouses made fully of flannel have the most stability, so I would recommend that type of fabric if you need it to support multiple rats!

I forgot to post earlier, but all orders were shipped out this morning, so be on the lookout!

Cavy Carnage: Yours is being sewn up next, so I should have a photo within the next day or so!

Also, since no requests were made, I'm starting on the "under water" set! So be on the lookout for that in the next couple of days! & don't forget some great raffles are ending soon, so be sure to check out our raffle page & buy some tickets to help ratties! We've also added Rattie_Abbies raffle, so take a peek and see if there's anything you'd like!

Yay, I can't wait. I'm so happy your girls like it! It's so hard to judge a new design until feedback starts coming in. don't forget to let me know if you see any major flaws or changes you think should be made. Every bit of feedback helps me make them better for future orders! Thanks so much! :thumbsup2:

So I could only get one pic of the girls, so I thought I would share (it's not the greatest, from cell and in half light, but I will get more for you that are better. So 10 girls can fit in at once, and it passed the washing test (a good thing)

This is Lola (on the left, yawning) and her mom Iris (on the right)

RatletLover: ahahaha  :yelcutelaugh: I absolutely love the rattie yawn! They have some absolutely gorgeous markings! & Wow, 10 rats, I never would've guessed, but I'll take that as the highest compliment! & although I had no fear of the washing test, lets see how round two goes...The Chew Test...my current newbies kill me everytime with that one   :BlueDumboSmileTongue:

Nightmelody: I'm so glad it got there safely! Sounds like you are going to have quite the lot of hammocks to pick from! Those are some spoiled ratties! & yes, the Wide Load Cavern is pretty darn big. What can I say, people said larger, we went larger. Now lets see what the ratties have to say about them...

haha well the wash test is the biggie for me, cause my girls don't chew horrible and if they do I repair it quickly. But they all loved it! They all pile into one but if I walk in the room they are out of their hammies to meet me, so I am assuming more have been it at once, at most 13 but with them jumping out 10 is what I counted. Thanks about the markings, I love my girls so much, and they are pretty girls in my eyes!

That's the first pic I've seen of them peeking out the bottom exit! & the last pic, is that a reddish brown & white rat? I don't believe I've ever seen that color combo before. There are some fantastically color schemed rats on here!

majikbabygirl:
I know, I just about died. Pepe is the only reason I bought that fabric. If no one snags it up, I'm giving it to my rattums!

I may be ordering from you super soon! My boys are slowly eating away their envelope hammies from Chelsey, so I'll be replacing those, and since MRR isn't making honeycombs right now, you'll be my next pick! My boys love to pile in a honeycomb together, so I need something with different layers and levels for them and I think your playhouse is awesome! I'm just so worried about them eating them. I can't complain. I've had one of their honeycombs for almost a year with no chewing, they've just started chomping on them lately, I think to say "Hey Mom! New hammies please!" I also think that they think Chelsey makes the tastiest hammies, as they started to chomp on hers as soon as they went in the cages. bRatty boys.  ::)

Cavy Carnage: What timing you have! I just finished & was about to put the pic up for you now! What a connection!  :poke: & I just updated my website, but I may have forgotten to update the thread. I decided to try and make 3 sizes for the burrow hammocks. 10"x10" is $10 , 12"x12" is $11 , & 14"x14" is $12! I'm sure I can make other sizes as well, but those are my basics for now.

& without any further delay... Heres you're completed Peek-A-Boo! Its ready to go, so unless you wanted to add anything to the package, just PM me your address & I'll have it off today!

Cavy Carnage: I meant to get back to you earlier, but my firefox decided to stop working on my computer & I've spent most of the day getting it back online. Your package did ship out though, so be on the lookout. I'm so glad you like it, & thanks so much for the compliment on the burrow hammocks. I really love them, and have decided if some of the premades arent taken in the next day or two, I'm handing a few premades over to my Minx & Verdell (they've been wondering when they're gonna start getting spoiled again, poor rattums.  :yelcutelaugh: I'll be on the lookout for your order when you get around to it, & can't wait to see what your rats think of the playhouse! thanks again for such a great name!

Cheerio: Again, I meant to reply sooner, but comp troubles, and whatnot.   :-\  I wasn't aware that the honeycombs were on hold. & those are such great hammocks (though, everyone knows, all of scubbs hammocks are fantastic!). But I'm honored to know that I'm on the list of hammocks you'd choose after scubbs. Thats a great compliment on its own! You just let me know when you're ready to order & we'll get you set up to spoil some lucky rats! I would recommend getting a playhouse in flannel fabric for "chewability", as its the thickest, though we both know a chewer wont be deterred. I feel your pain, my two newbies are my first horrible chewers, and they've demolished half of my hammock/liner collection in just a few weeks. It breaks my heart...  :'(

sigalayho: Your cage looks so nice. It looks like you picked up quite a lot of goodies for your spoiled rattums! & I'm happy to see you found someone to make you some wonderful liners! They're are some fantastic liner makers on here, I don't even dream of competing with any of them! & your rattum looks just like my previous girls Kailee & Chaila & my late boy Tajo, absolutely adorable. Don't worry, some rats just take a bit to figure out the whole "hammock" thing, but once they get it, good luck getting them to live without em! Thanks so much, I'll be waiting to see more pics when you're able to get them!

Hugosmom: Hmm, shipping is usually pretty quick. Keep me informed if it isn't there soon & we'll figure something out. Sometimes the post office here gets lazy, I believe. Perhaps it's the downfalls of living in the middle of nowhere. & I've been anxiously awaiting pictures of your big boys in their "girly" hammie. don't worry, they'll never know!  :poke:

& Thanks to some big spenders and some custom requests, I was forced into JoAnns, again, to stock up on fleece before the sale ended. Needless to say... I purchased more fabrics. I know... Here are the newest additions to my stash, start sending those big orders & clearing out fabric, I don't have any more room to store it!  :yelcutelaugh:

It's so exciting, I just can't hardly wait!!  The fish and snail bungalow is soo adorable!  I've got 4 huge 'girly' boy ratties who love paisley! (Well, or maybe momma just likes paisley, those poor boys!)  All of your creations are just beautiful, I wish I could buy them all!

Thisspirit: If you wanted to add a Peek-A-Boo to the total package, I could do it for an extra $20 (bringing the total to $75). I would also be willing to let you take out the bungalow & either 2 small hammocks or 1 large hammock, and put the Peek-A-Boo Playhouse in their place for the regular $55 price. Also, if you really want the Fish/Snail bungalow, I can reserve the $20 set for you until the 29th and you can include it in your order. Just let me know if you want it reserved & I'll hold it for you!

RatletLover: The burrow hammocks in your order will be in the new 12"x12" sizing as well, so no worries! I'll be starting on your "spoiled rotten" package today! thanks so much!

Ok, since these weren't getting any takers for the Spring Cleaning sale, I AM NOW DONATING THEM TO THE FIRST OFFICIAL RAT RESCUE THAT POSTS SOME CUTE PHOTOS OF THEIR RESCUE RATS FOR ME TO SEE & REQUESTS THEM! FIRST RESCUE TO GET PHOTOS UP HERE TAKES THEM!!! They are the smaller 10"x10" hammocks, but I'm sure rescue rats would love them just the same! First official rat rescue to show me some cute faces takes them!  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:

Nightmelody: I'll do better than that. Rhinelander Rat Rescue, send me a PM with the address you'd like the 4 shipped to, and I'll get them on out to you!

Scubbs/HVRR: Go ahead and PM me with a shipping address for HVRR, and I'll sew up another 4 and ship them on out!

Those pics are fantastic. The dog snuggle is just unheard of. & I adore the rattie pile up & the cheerio photo. But I like the studio shots as well. Now that I think of it, are there really any rat photos that aren't packed full of squishy cuteness?
Absolutely adorable guys, that made my morning!!!  :BlueDumboSmile:

Just wanted to let you know I got my package today (I knew you were worried) - I LOVE the playhouse, and thanks so much for the other two hammocks!  They are extremely cool and we've not tried any designed like this before.  I can't wait to get a pick of the boys on the double hammock (I just know Tux will take the top "bunk" and Hugo the bottom! LOL), and to see them snuggled under the snuggle layer on the owl hammock - that's ingenious, by the way.

I put the playhouse in, and just Hugo at first (since he's the more timid boy).  He got the idea of going in the bottom hammock thru the hole into the cube part right away!  Here's a pic of him, looking all proud of himself:(http://www.goosemoose.com/coppermine/albums/userpics/37470/MVC-259F.JPG)


Next I put in Tuxedo.  Hugo went to the top, and Tux rocketed thru the side hole then decided to look out the window at me.  This is an action shot, as Tux was just peeping up to see what Hugo's doing on the top.  That's Hugo's tail at the right side of the pic.  I spaced the hangers further apart after this:
(http://www.goosemoose.com/coppermine/albums/userpics/37470/MVC-261F.JPG)

This playhouse is a huge hit so far - as I type this they're still excitedly exploring it - Hugo just paused from his underneath inspection to touch noses thru the side hole with Tux, who's checking out the top now.  Really cute!  Thanks! :)

Hugosmom: I was getting a bit anxious. I was absolutely dying to see your manly boys in purple!!! I'm happy you got the package, & glad to see that Hugo & Tux approve! Thanks so much for sharing. I'm really enjoying seeing how these playhouses work for everyone!

Ok, this should be the last bunch for awhile, but here are yet a few more fabrics...  :yelcutelaugh:  See All Fabrics Here! (http://www.flickr.com/photos/scarletnotion/sets/72157615908589934/)

The introductory sale price of $55 for the Spoiled Rotten Package is good until Friday. After that it will go up to a standard price of $65 total.

RatletLover: Your Spoiled Rotten Package & Bunny Cube are complete! Let me know when you're ready, I can have them shipped out anytime! I think the bunny cube is fantastic, very boy/girl oriented (much brighter in person, the orange is on the side & back!)  :wink5: Thanks so much!
(Sorry for the sloppy pic, I was wiped by the time these we're done!  :BlueDumboSmileTongue: )
(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3569/3486268926_32f8bd298d.jpg)

Christine, I am starting your order now, & am planning on getting it in the mail friday so your new ratties can enjoy them when they come home to you!
Shrute & Nightmelody, I'll be trying to whip yours out right after Christines is complete. I hope you guys can bear with me, I've never quite been slammed with so many hammocks at once.  :yelcutelaugh:

& here are the finalized donations for Rhinelander Rat Rescue & HVRR. I just threw in some extra premades as I just don't have the time to sew any extra small burrows. I hope the ratties love them, & thanks for all the great things your organizations do for the little critters!

Ooh I got my Peek a Boo Playhouse on Monday and it is fantastic, so well made and looks fun! I am going to be putting it up either today or tomorrow and I will tell you how she likes it.

I am tempted to get a rabbit cube for my bunnies, how much do they cost? I have probably missed that part somewhere. I am kinda scared they will start using it as a litterbox though, anything dark with corner becomes an instant pee ridden mess :-\

Cavy Carnage: I'm so happy to hear you like it. So far, all the ratties seem to be pretty pleased with them, so hopefully yours will be no exception!

& no, you didn't miss the pricing on the bunny cube. I actually just made one as a special request, only to find people actually wanted them, so I haven't even listed them yet. After making the first one & seeing what costs go into making & shipping one, I've settled on $30 each (S&H included) with your choice of fabrics. The only catch on the bunny cubes is that they require so much fabric, I don't always have enough of a first choice. But if you let me know your top preferences, I can  see if I have it, or even possibly get more if I don't (depending on if the fabric store still has it). Just let me know, the bunny cubes are going to be a regular and the $30 price should be here to stay!

Cavy Carnage- I have to say if you have a rabbit (I think you do) Rabbits LOVE Hammocks, just the same as rats, they just don't chew at all (well the ones here don't). I have several that love flat hammocks, one that does use a cube, but with the cubes I have, he is the only one that can fit in one.... But anyway here is some proof, This is Tonie, surrendered 2 days ago and her and her sister fight over the flat hammock I have for them in the cage! They can't fit in it at once (too fat) but they LOVE it!

OMG she is so cute!

Yeh mine love to chew fabric :-\ Normally when they are mad or frustrated at me for not letting them out soon enough. I just bought a cheapy dog bed for them so if that lasts longer than a week I will buy them a cube.

wow...you have had some big orders..thats awesome! so..my only feedback of having the playhouse for a week, is maybe offering a smaller size as well? i absolutely LOVE it, and so do the girls, but it takes up alot of space in my cn, so i can only imagine if it was in a martins. but other than that...perfect! they havent chewed a single hole in it yet, and really seem to love all the extra openings. thanks again!

Thanks she is a doll, and up for adoption... ::)

I think the offering size would be good, but I have martins (big martins) and it fits fine with them. I have it in the girl cage (ferret penthouse) but I will try it in the boys Ruud and 695 tomorrow...

So...how does one go about ordering your 'spoiled rotten' package? Do you have a bunch of premades that I'd choose from, or would I choose my fabric from your website?

Post by: Violet976 on April 29, 2009, 11:55:07 PM
BellaBooks: You actually pick your own fabrics for the Spoiled Rotten Package, as well as your size choices for the pockets, burrows, and flat hammocks (2 small or 1 large each). I'm in the process of tweaking the sizes on the larger burrows, so the first few orders are actually getting slightly larger hammocks than anticipated, though I'm sure I'll have no complaints on that one!  :wink5:

If you'd like to order a Spoiled Rotten Package, you'll need to send me the list of the hammocks you'd like (selected from the list on the first post), as well as your fabric preferences for each hammock. I can then double check fabric availability & let you know if any changes need to be made. Let me know if you have any further questions, otherwise you can shoot me an email with your order request. I currently have a bit of a wait list, as I have 2 Spoiled Rotten Packages in progress & another custom order for 11 hammocks, so just a heads up that it may take a couple of weeks for me to complete your order. If you ordered before friday, your order would still be charged at the $55 introductory price, regardless of the completion date. Sorry for any delay, I've never anticipated such an abundance of orders at once.  :doh:

Ok, I just got slammed with hammocks to make, so I am currently placing a hold on orders while I catch up on the back orders I have. I will still be accepting any orders for members who want to get the sale price on the Spoiled Rotten Sale Price (good until friday), but please note that it will be a few weeks before your order will be completed. To those that have already placed orders, yours are locked in and are being completed as quickly as possible, and anyone who has already contacted me regarding placing orders can still do so, just be aware that there will be a time delay before I can get your order completed and shipped out. I anticipate to have the orders currently placed out within a week or two in the order received, and will then notify everyone that orders are being accepted again. Sorry for any inconvenience, but I want to make sure those who already have orders placed get theirs as quickly as possible & don't want to have new orders placed with a 3 week time frame for completion. (I'd also like to know I can take a break when these are completed, if needed  :yelcutelaugh:   Thanks for your understanding!

BellaBooks & a few other members who have already contacted me regarding an order can still place one, just be aware it will take 2-3 weeks for me to get them done for you!
  We are currently back on track & accepting orders again!. :BlueDumboSmile:

betti_page: Thanks so much for the feedback! I can absolutely customize any peek-a-boo playhouse ( I can customize most hammocks available for sizing requests) I recently did a playhouse that was a few inches shorter in height for one customer, so don't ever hesitate to ask! I will probably leave it a standard size, but just notate that measurement changes are available upon request! Thanks so much for the input, & I'm so glad to hear that they like it! (I also have a FN, so I can imagine where my hammock sizings tend to be on the large size. I forget that people have smaller cages than our rat mansions!  :yelcutelaugh: )

Shrute: Thanks so much, I really appreciate the understanding. I should be starting yours in 3-4 days tops, I just didn't anticipate so much interest all at once & I hate to tell too many people ordering, "well, I'm not sure how soon I can get these out". I'm so used to a two day timeframe with much smaller orders, so I guess I'll have to adjust my expectations for how quick one can make 30+ hammocks  :yelcutelaugh: I can only imagine how Chelsey feels, kudos to her for her ability to crank those things out!

Glad to hear you like our items. As for the rattie purse, you'll need to be a bit more specific so I can visualize what you'd like. (You can email me at theratstash@hotmail.com if you'd like to discuss it in detail). We're you wanting one of our current designs converted into a pouch, or just a brand new design that you could carry your rats in. If its just a bonding purse you're looking for, here are a few that people really seem to like offered by some other great hammock makers. They have been making them for quite some time & I'm sure they have all the kinks worked out, or could easily modify something to your liking. Otherwise, feel free to shoot me an email & we can try to work something out for you!

Hey, Thought i would show you some pics of the rescued lab boys, who I have dubbed Louis and Skeeter. They LOVE the peekaboo playhouse, a little too much...  :doh:
(http://photos-c.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs022.snc1/4254_689212954647_9618401_39744714_8093752_n.jpg)

but hopefully this time, they won't chew as bad, I made them a den ...
(http://photos-f.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs022.snc1/4254_689212974607_9618401_39744717_4278756_n.jpg)

BTW, yes their cage is small - 36" cubed..., they were in a 12x18 cubicle before, so we thought we would let them adjust to this much space before moving them into the huge cage the VT program director has for them... but so far they won't use the shelf or any higher hanging hammocks..

Oh my goodness, my heart just sank...  :BlueDumboBigEyes: & I thought I had it bad with my "horrible" chewers. That poor peek-a-boo playhouse. Those are the rats you just rescued though, right? Perhaps the aggression will mellow as they get a little more comfortable with all the new changes they're going through.  ??? I hope you can still salvage some use out of it  :puppy_dog_eyes: ...Wow.  :yelcutelaugh:

Post by: Nightmelody on May 05, 2009, 02:35:32 PM
lol.. i know, so did mine when i walked in and saw it  :BlueDumboBigEyes: :'( but, my theory is that they did it because they felt insecure with a cage so much larger than what they were used to...which is why i created a den with the pocket hammock and bungalow yesterday. I am going to try and trim the playhouse up and let my other, non-destructive kids use it, because I love it too much to put it back in with those boys unless they cut it out.  it is pretty much just the back half of the bottom hammock and inner bottom layer that they destroyed, so i think my kids will use it just fine. and yes, Louis and Skeeter are my recent lab rescues. I am going with the assumption that they will mellow, cause if they don't I am not sure i can afford to house and care for them after all..... not that i would abandon them like that.... but sheesh. I would have to be making my own hammocks for them at that rate.  :doh:

just thought i would share, there was not a single chew hole to be found today when i went to clean and work on socialization! YAY!  I did discover that Louis is almost too fat to get his big belly out of the bungalow though!! LOL.  :yelcutelaugh: poor baby.

110earth:   Ha, Nightmelody beat me to it. I actually do plan on making more premades. I'm currently catching up on orders (mainly Nightmelodies  :yelcutelaugh:) so I'm throwing in premades in between. I am taking custom orders though, so you could just order any types of hammock you like in any fabric you choose (both the thread & website are now up to date with new hammock designs & pricing), & then you could have Pocket Bunkers in exactly the fabric you choose (you can mix and match fabrics on those as well). Our Available Fabric Selection is HERE (http://www.flickr.com/photos/scarletnotion/sets/72157615908589934/), & you can email me at TheRatStash@hotmail.com if you have any questions or would like to place an order!  :BlueDumboSmile:  & don't forget with our weekly special, until midnight Sunday May 10th, you can receive a free small or medium flat/pocket/or burrow hammock with any purchase over $20

Anemisar:
I'm so happy you like it. It actually pops more in person, as the Irish Swirls is nice and bright & you get to see more of the Blue Fish. Its a combo I never would've thought of, but I absolutely love it! Can't wait to hear how your rattums like it! Thanks so much!

Anemisar: You know what I realized? You requested a small burrow hammock for your freebie, but the offer was actually for a MEDIUM hammock (which I failed to catch  :doh:) So... I sewed you up another freebie small burrow hammock in Blue Fish.

A bribe for your rattums forgiveness...  :BlueDumboBigEyes:  :yelcutelaugh:

BellaBooks: Your photos brightened my day! What a cutie pie Bacon is, & I'm happy to see he approves of your winnings! Its funny how much better hammocks look with handsome ratties to model them. I'll be stealing those photos for my website, if you don't mind! Thanks so much for sharing them.  :BlueDumboSmile:

Of course not! I'm just sorry I wasn't able to get better pictures. My problem is that they all come running when I open the door!

I love your peek-a-boo playhouse! I was wondering if you would make me one if I sent you the fabric? If so, how much fabric would you need to complete it? I would purchase both cotton for the outside and fleece for the inside. I have a particular fabric in mind for this. If this is something you are interested in doing, great! If not, that's ok too!

Post by: Violet976 on May 19, 2009, 12:19:41 PM
Cheerio: The Ahoy Matey Set is still available! I think the double decker would more than accommodate two chubby ratties. They might have to squish a bit for the pocket, depending on how big they are (it's 11"x13", if that helps any for reference). I have one full boy & a still tiny girl, so I have a hard time referencing how big "big" rats can be  :yelcutelaugh: Let me know if I can answer any other questions for you, or if you'd to snag the set.  :BlueDumboSmile:

(Those snuggle squares are fantastic, by the way! One of the few items I had to arrange a trade for  :thumbsup2:)
...Can't wait to see how your rattums like their new stuff, hopefully they'll be nicer to it this time  :yelcutelaugh: & thanks again for all the wonderful fabric you've already sent my way. I actually have an order including the Hot Air Balloons, so I guess you made a great choice with that one!

lol. Is it sad that I already have a list of what i want next, even though i haven't gotten this package yet??? I will definitely be choosing carefully which hammocks Louis and Skeeter get out of this bunch, cause I know they will probably be annihilated(that looks wrong, but spell check says it's right, so....) and i love those cuddle squares, and i really want some of the designs scubbs makes too... oh the choices with such small paychecks! I may put in an order to scubbs the next check, and then come back to you again, since i adore your designs so thoroughly, and my rattums do too! Those bright dots and the critters are sooo cute, they are definitely on my short(or not so short) list of fabrics i have to use next, if there is anything left of them by the time i get to it. That last order for betti_page is great!

In my next life, I want to be one of your ratties!  :poke: I can only dream of being able to acquire so many hammocks! & I'm sure I don't have to sell you on how great those snuggle squares or Scubbs products are. As for the Dots & Critters, I'm running low, but I'll be sure to get more so long as they have some, as they seem to be well liked! & Betti_page gets the credit for her fantastic fabric choices, as that was all her doing! Can't wait to see what your rattums think of your new hammocks, you'll have to let me know which ones make it through round one!  :yelcutelaugh:

(http://photocache.petfinder.com/fotos/TN559/1242439239/TN559.13532862-1-pn.jpg)
($7 Raised So Far!)

Those of you who know RatletLover have probably heard of all the wonderful things she does at Hops & Lops Tennessee Rabbit Rescue! Currently, they have a handsome fella named Tucker who could use a bit of help ( READ TUCKERS STORY HERE! (http://www.petfinder.com/petnote/displaypet.cgi?petid=13532862)) In an effort to help towards Tuckers eye removal surgery & other vet bills, I'm donating all money received from any Premade Hammocks sold & 10% from any Custom Orders or Premade Sets to Ratletlover (Please feel free to contact her to verify that this has been arranged  :thumbsup2: ).

So...if you have been eyeing any of our Premades selection, now is a great time to snag them up & help out a great cause. & if you order $20 or more worth of premades, I'll even throw in a small pocket hammock or small bunker!  :poke: I'm thinking I'll run this for a week or two & then send all funds collected to Ratletlover.

-I will also be trying to add to the premade selection as I get time between orders! I'll be sure to update with any new premades as well as a runnning total of donations collected for Tucker! Any other questions, just ask!  :BlueDumboSmile: & if you can't help by purchasing,  just send some good thoughts little Tucker!!!  :BlueDumboSmile: -

Got my box this morning! Actually, it came yesterday, but I was on my way to work before I found out, so I went down and got it when I got off this morning, before i went to bed. I am going to have such a hard time deciding which hammocks to 'sacrifice' to those silly boys, who seem to still be in the death to hammies phase. I think I am going to make it a priority to get them some plain cubes in fabric I don't care about... lol.

Nightmelody: Yay! I'm so glad you got it, though I'm cringing at the thought of those little monsters getting to work on them (mine do the same thing, so I can totally relate to you). Next time we'll have to whip you up some junkie tunnels to let them go at first (I'd say cubes, but cubes are my least fav thing to make, so we'll go with tunnels  :yelcutelaugh:). Can't wait to see what your rattums do this time!  :poke: thanks again, it was a pleasure, as always!!!  :BlueDumboSmile:

Hi, I have never really said thank you for what you are doing! Any little bit helps! Tucker is a great friendly little guy that has a hard start in live. He has gained all his weight back and a bit more, and is going Thrus. Next week to see when we can do all his vetting, and revol. his other eye and hearing (which we think is nothing on the left side and limited on the right). His eye is not looking any better at all, its about half the size as his half way normal one and completely flat (no pupil). He is an amazing little animal and recently has been a part of our education program about rescue rabbits, and he is one of the few rabbits we have worked with that lets small kids hold him without a fuss. He just sits quickly loving the pats and treats! I hope to get some newer pics of him up soon for everyone to see.

But thanks again for this!

Scubbs: I know, that fabric is very strange indeed, and just as crazy bright in person. I wish they had more of it, but being a thrift store item, you take what you can get your hands on!

Ratletlover: No need for thanks. I really like to give back when I can, and this is by far the easiest way for me to do it, especially since money is tight. This way everyone wins, & I get to know that what I do has more impact than just helping to brighten up critters cages (though thats nice too!). I'll be pulling hard for the little guy, but I am always amazed at how well animals do with any handicaps (my cat Loki is missing half of one back leg, & the foot off the other, & you never see it slow her down in the least. She's hobbly wobbly, but definitely one happy cat!). I'll be waiting for updates after the vet visit! & thanks for all the great work your doing & for letting me be a part of it!

Thank you so much for the extra burrows as well; my rats haven't warmed up to those as much yet, but they really don't have any free time since they spend all their time in the peekaboo.  Sometimes they'll sit in it all together (I have 3) and each stick a head out of an opening at the same time!  I love the style!

Ok, its that time again!... I'd like to donate some hammocks to the next two rat rescues that post some cute photos of their ratties (Last time HVRR & Rhinelander Rat Rescue got them, so I'd like to get two new ones this time, but if none post, you guys will be next in line!). So....

The first two rat rescues that post some cute photos of their rats can pick one of the available sets I currently have up!!! Come on now, bring on those adorable rattie muggs!!!  :poke:

Betti_page: Yay! I'm so happy to see them in there! They look like such tiny little bubs compared to what I'm used to seeing! Thanks so much for sharing, that made my day!!!  :BlueDumboSmile:

& just wanted to see if anyone was interested in these. These are the cardboard inserts for copier machines at my moms work. They measure 22" long by 3" wide & seem to be perfectly made for rats (mine adore theirs). I was thinking instead of wasting them off to the dump, I could offer them for just the price of shipping (hopefully under $5 each). Just wanted to see if anyone wanted them before I went to the post office to calculate shipping costs!  :BlueDumboSmile:

Just wanted to note a few changes:

-The website has been revamped to hopefully make it more user friendly. Mostly cosmetic changes have been made, but if anyone notices any problems or improvements that need to be corrected, do not hesitate to let me know!

-Peek-A-Boo Playhouses are now going to be regularly priced at $25. The price has not been updated yet on the forum or website, but should be listed as such later today or tomorrow.

-We've also added the option for anyone buying hammocks for rescues to receive 30% off their order (must be shipped directly to the rescue for discount to apply). I know times are hard, but please do not try to take advantage of this if you are not really purchasing for a rescue. It frustrates the hammock makers & wastes our time, it limits the number of people willing to donate so generously to rescues, and it hurts the rescues most of all. Let's all try to keep things positive in this tough economy!  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:

Thanks so much!  The hammocks are beautiful yet delightfully manly.   :yelcutelaugh:

autofail: Yay! I'm so glad to see at least one in use (though, how can a hammie compete with food when it comes to rats!). & I'm glad to hear that the "manly" thing worked out. Its hard to think of "manly" & rat hammies!  :yelcutelaugh: & My goodness, Uncle Berd looks absolutely HUGE compared to your other bugs! Thanks so much for sharing those, I absolutely adore getting happy rattum photos!

Ok everyone, i just spent the entire day yesterday & half of last night prewashing (but I'm happy to say all fabrics are now prewashed & heat dried!), so I didn't make it to the computer much yesterday. For those who had some special fabric requests, I am heading to a local fabric shop today to see if they have anything fantastic available. I still haven't gotten to updating pricing on the website/thread, but Peek-A-Boos are now $25 & I will update shortly. I also updated the Spoiled Critters Photo Viewer on my website as the other one was very glitchy, so please let me know if any other fixes need to be implemented on the website. Other than that, I will be starting on all orders tonight & tomorrow & responding to all PM's in just a moment.

&, of course... Here are 3 new fabrics:   See All Available Fabrics Here! (http://www.flickr.com/photos/scarletnotion/sets/72157615908589934/)

OK, I am officially offering 2 peek-a-boo playhouses for Stars Rescue for food for their rattums! See link below:

http://www.goosemoose.com/component/option,com_smf/Itemid,118/forum,rat/topic,4056994.0 (http://www.goosemoose.com/component/option,com_smf/Itemid,118/forum,rat/topic,4056994.0)

They are $25 each, so if anyone wants one you can send the donation with a note that it is for the playhouse, and I'll have the rescue notify me upon receipt of your donation. Your choice of fabric! Great way to give towards some needy ratties & be able to spoil your own in the process! First come, first serve.

Mkay, that sounds awesome.  I just love critterchic's fabric, so I'd love a peek-a-boo playhouse just the same as the one in the picture, with the awesome swirly stars and moons.  It looks great!  I have to scroll back thru this topic to find the Stars Rescue donations instructions/link, but I'll do that right now.  Thanks Violet!   :wave2:

Kay, I made my donation.  There's no spot during the donation procedure to include a message to Stars, so I sent them a separate message thru their website - hope that all works out!  Let me know when you're ready for my address.

This is a pretty cool deal, Violet.  Thanks very much for donating the playhouse.  This way, I get to be a part of the donation process, but I get some pretty cool goodies, too!  You're awesome!   ;D

This is the first hammie or cube that I've ever purchased.  I actually sew, but I love your design and that fabric, and I think what you're doing for the rescue is awesome, so I just couldn't resist.  So, you know, there's no need to rush or anything . . .  I'll just be out hanging around my mailbox . . . waiting . . .  :P

synelovator: Your Playhouse for the Stars Donation you made is complete! Thanks so much for your generosity & for helping to keep those ratty tummies full!  :BlueDumboSmileTongue: You can't see it in the photo, but the inner purple fleece really pops in this hammock! I can't wait to see what your ratties think of it!

italianqt: You're gonna give me a big head!!!  :BlueDumboSmileTongue: Thanks so much for the wondeful compliment, & I can't wait to see what all those rattums think of the new hammocks!

critterchic: Wow, you weren't kidding! What a beautiful matching set!!! Did you make those yourself or have some other hammocks makers whip some up as well? Either way, they look stunning!

All completed donations & paid orders are shipping out tomorrow morning (I missed the post office today, my apologies to those with items ready  :puppy_dog_eyes:) But I promise they will be off first thing in the AM for you all! Thanks again!!!

Hi Violet. I'm itching to order a playhouse (you keep taunting me with all these lovely photos!) and was wondering if you'd be okay with buying a playhouse & getting a cube (8x8) at 1/2 price instead of a second playhouse?
(btw - love seeing my Bacon on your website's homepage! He l-o-v-e-s that cube, which is why I think I need to get him a second one!)

BellaBooks: The sale applies to any combination of hammocks, so you could absolutely get both a playhouse & another cube for handsome Bacon! (I absolutely adore that photo, which is of course why he's my main man for the site! I didn't think you'd mind too terribly  :poke:). Just give me the word & I'll get started on your playhouse & cube!!!  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:

& I just brought home the last of this gorgeous 4th of July Fabric, so get it while it lasts!

Critterchic: "The new "it" hammock" I love that! It reminds me of Seinfeld's "The Place to Be".  :yelcutelaugh: My goodness, your rattums look so darn comfortable & cute! I just started adding the extra middle loops (don't know why I didn't do that in the first place  :doh:), & I'm so glad to see that they seem to add more support overall! Thanks so much for sharing those!!!

BellaBooks: Your order is complete, or, should I say, Bacons order! It will be shipping out tomorrow morning. I hope Bacon approves, though, I'm not sure he could do a promo photo better than the one he's already got on my website! I adore that one!!!  :BlueDumboSmileTongue: Thanks again!
(http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2443/3626257744_3b86247a16.jpg)

& we are currently at $37 raised for Tucker!!! Thanks so much to all who have purchased so far!!! Every bit helps!  :BlueDumboSmile:

& just fyi, I didn't post this fabric because it was a special request for an order. It is a stunning Betta Fish fabric & I currently have just enough left for one, unlikely but possibly two hammocks (depending on what type is requested). So, the next person to nab it will most likely get the last of it!  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:

Thanks to everyone who's purchased we've raised $37 for Tucker, and any purchases made until June 30th will also apply to the donation being made (of course, I'm sure you could probably donate directly to the rescue on their website as well if you'd like!). Thanks so much!!!

Hey, Violet   :wave2:

My peek-a-boo playhouse arrived last night and I just love it!  It's really, really well-made.  As I said before, I can sew, so I've never purchased hammies before, but after seeing this one, I'll definitely order from you again.  I can't wait to get it hangin' and get some pix of the girls in it!

Thanks again!

The hammocks Olex purchased for MRR arrived a while ago. I have to say, I am having trouble giving them to foster families! They are so adorable and well made that I want to keep them for myself! Afterall, I have foster rats too! LOL
But I didn't, I have been passing them out to be used for their intended purpose :)

PnutLuv: I just checked the website, & it appears the whole site crashed & they're doing maintenance. But I do have many premades available (hopefully they'll be back up soon!, if not I can get them up elsewhere), & can always whip something up if you want some custom hammocks! Just let me know, or if you're looking for a particular type of premade, let me know & I'll post any I have!  :BlueDumboSmile:

kimmyizme: Yay! I'm so glad to hear that they are so well loved!  :hyper: I will definitely be sending more as soon as my funds get stabilized, so you'll be sure to have some extras lying around at some point! I plan on doing the "hammocks for rattum pictures" at least once a month, and hopefully donating even more as money permits! I'm glad to hear you were able to separate from them!  :yelcutelaugh:

Nightmelody: Ok you slavedriver, you...  :poke: You're "Spoiled Rotten Package & then Some" is complete & will be shipping out tomorrow morning. I wish I had a better photo, but its hard to squeeze so many hammocks in one photo!  :BlueDumboSmileTongue: Thanks so much, I can't wait to see photos of these in action!!!

$48 has been raised for Tucker so far, and any purchases paid before June 30th will also apply to Tuckers donation. I have to say, I am stunned by the amount of generosity from everyone who has purchased to help this little guy out! Funds collected for Tucker will be sent to Hops & Lops Rabbit Rescue in July, & I will be sure to keep you guys posted on the outcome of his healthcare! Thanks so much everyone, you guys rock!!!  :wav:

We're having some camera issues, so once that's sorted out I'll be posting photos. The husband ended up decorating the cages this weekend, and Bacon is not actually in the cage with the cube OR the playhouse this time around. I'd be sad about it, except that the younger boys love your houses SO MUCH!

The cube is hanging kind of close to the water bottle, so the most amusing thing is watching my fat, lazy boys try to get a drink while still lounging on the top of the cube, instead of just hopping off like a normal rat!  :rattysmiley:  They've already created a back door, so hopefully modifications are complete at this point! There are 11 rats in this cage, and there are always at least 3 rats in or on the cube at all times, so it was a big hit.

The peek-a-boo playhouse is AWESOME! I have 2 naked baby foster rats, and they've claimed the top of the playhouse as their own personal sleeping area. It's hysterical, 'cause they're so small & the playhouse is so big. They look like they're playing 'king of the castle!' My 2nd-to-fattest rat, Sylvester McMonkey McBean, has been sleeping in the middle level. I tried to get a picture yesterday, but he had moved before I could find the camera. He was sleeping in the middle level, but sleeping over the hole. And his butt was almost touching the bottom hammock through the hole!  :shocked2:  That's one big squish of a rat! What I love the most about the playhouse is not seeing any rats, and then walking by & having 4-6 little heads poke out at random spots. It's cute as anything.

Once I find the memory card (it had better not be in Pennsylvania!) & get the camera charged, I'll get some good photos & post them for you. Thanks again, Violet. These are AMAZING as usual!

(Pardon our mess during rat introductions! Unfortunately, my slobs had the cage this dirty after about 12 hours!)

BellaBooks: I was just going to respond, & didn't even notice you had added photos!!!  :hyper: Wow! They really did a number on that cube, and in record time!  :yelcutelaugh: I was thinking when I read your post originally, that I might add an option to put another small whole in the cubes for a "back entrance", but I never expected yours had chewed through the front... I'm not really sure my back entrance idea would deter that, but I think I'll still make it an availability. Either way, those photos are fantastic! I adore your little hairless cuties! It really makes those ears "pop". & that photo with them both snoozing on the Peek-A-Boo is adorable! I'm glad they approve, even with their new "renovations".
*Just an idea for those chewers of yours, I know someone on here makes the "breezy cube" (i think its called), where they leave all four side corners open (right where yours chewed). That might be exactly what your chewers are looking for !  Thanks sooo much for sharing, those made my night!!!  :BlueDumboSmile::BlueDumboSmileTongue:
*Edit, I was just thinking I counted 3 rats in that cube, when I went back and read 11 rats?!?!! *faints* ... I can't even imagine how you keep up, but I think I suddenly understand how "renovations" happened so quickly!!!  :yelcutelaugh: More power to you for keeping up with that lot!  :thumbsup2:

LOL. I almost didn't post the picture.  I wasn't sure how traumatic it would be for you to see. My boys don't generally chew quite that badly. I think they were just nervous during introductions. Luckily they went pretty well, and we now have 11 in one cage. That's a record for us, too!

Aren't they adorable? They're actually foster rats from Mainely Rat (Tyke & Ryder). There's a thread in the adoptions page about these sweetums. They're such perfect rats - haven't figured out why no one's scooped them up yet  :icon_scratch:

Nightmelody: I just spent a few hours updating the website (you can now click on the product images for more information), and notated that cubes (& I guess by default bungalows, haven't updated that yet), can have extra entrances added upon request! I'm going to play it by ear and see how the first few work out, but it sounds nice in theory! If you want to try a small one on the bungalow in your order, just let me know! Test Rattums, & whatnot.

BellaBooks: Never fear posting a picture, my heart is getting used to seeing the destruction those little mouths can accomplish (mine do the same thing). & yes, Kats Rats broke me in the first time, I've never quite seen a hammock demolished with such thoroughness!!!  :yelcutelaugh: So long as there's love involved, I'll let it slide.  :BlueDumboSmile:

I would love a back entrance to my bungalow, if you care to make it that way, I am just stating it here, cause I just sent your pm reply, and don't want to send another one just for that.
Those lab rats destroyed a total of 10 or more hammocks to the point that I had to throw them away, and there are a few more that I have resisted throwing away, just because it breaks my heart to do so.. I have visions of hanging the remnants of the playhouse upside down so it will still be a passable hammock. LOL

Just a reminder, there is less than one week to get any last minute orders towards Tuckers Donation (see page 1). All funds collected by June 30th will be forwarded to Hops & Lops Rabbit Rescue. To date, $51 has been raised, which is fantastic! Thanks so much to everyone who's purchased for keeping this little bunny in your thoughts! I'll be sure to keep updates posted on this thread & my website as I receive them, but I'm told they expect to know the status of his eye before the end of July. Keep those good thoughts coming, & thanks for such a generous display of generosity & kindness!!! (July's Rescue of the Month is going to be Capital City Rat Rescue, more details for that on July 1st!)

Just FYI: I am going to be house/dogsitting over the weekend, so...if anyone was wanting to order & wanting it sooner than later, please let me know today so I can bring my "sewing travel pack" with me.  :yelcutelaugh:

Melissa you are so incredibly talented!!  i am in awe!   :bow:

Just want to show off the fabulous Ms Kiwi modeling one of my new peekaboo playhouses!

Trying out the inside:

Hey the top works well too!
(http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b319/ladybug101spots/Ratkins/kimodel2.jpg)

After 10 mins after I turned out the lights I snuck back into the rattie room and all 6 girls were in the new playhouse, 2 on top, 2 inside, 2 on the bottom swing but OF COURSE I was not able to get a shot of that.  But it sure was cute!  Thanks so much for your talent!  And to be able to help Tucker sure made it even better.

Look for another order soon...

I am going to FINALLY be posting a picture of the awsome playhouse I got from you! Believe it or not, they haven't so much as nibbled at it, I swear it's a miracle! I had given it to my two new girls, but getting a picture of them in anything (unless their fast asleep) has bee near impossible, plus it doesn't help that they sleep in the weirdest places. I moved one of my neutered males in with them and he quickly claimed the cube, it's the only place he sleeps, so i will be trying to sneak up on him to get a picture, once i get it I will post it right away. It's still one of my all time favorite hammocks :thumbsup2:

They should have an update on Tuckers eye shortly, but expect him to be just about ready for his eye removal surgery. I will definitely update on here for anyone interested when I know how it goes!

Hi Violet:

Bacon and Coffee are currently enjoying the playhouse you made, so I wanted to share some photos. I must say that it is holding up AMAZINGLY well after quite a few washes!

I didn't take these pictures in rapid succession...the boys are just lazy enough to stay in the same position for minutes on end! LOL

Bacon!!!!  :hyper: There's that handsome man! I never realized he had some white on him as well, is he actually a hooded? (I had mistaken him for a solid gray). & I'm also assuming him & Coffee are brothers, such handsome genes! I think Bacon's trying to get a new website shot!  :yelcutelaugh:

Its great to know the Peek-A-Boos are holding up so well. It looks like your fortunate enough to have non chewers, which helps a great deal in that department! Perhaps your boys will set a new record for hammie preservation!  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:

Post by: BellaBooks on July 15, 2009, 07:06:41 AM
LOL. I can't wait to tell Olex that you said our boys are non-chewers. They usually re-decorate everything! There's some minor chewing on the playhouse, but I think that because it already has so many doors, it's not as necessary for them to chew up.

Yes, Bacon is a hooded. Coffee is a rex dumbo berk. And they live with Twitches, a standard berk. They were all cagemates, but I'm not sure if they are brothers. Bacon, Coffee & Twitches were my very first rats. Olex had some when we didn't live together (mostly throughout his childhood), but these boys were my first experience with rats. They made a good impression, so I'm now a rat-lover!

Thanks again for the hammocks. They're really loving them!

I sent the package with the fabric today! I also included two other hot air balloon fabrics that I had stashed and forgot about, but I will likely only ask for a couple of flat or pocket hamocks in them, just enough to round out my other hot air balloon hammocks for a full set. not likely more than 2 hammocks from each one. Thanks! PM me when it gets there, and we can decide which fabric package to do first... I am thinking monkeys will have to be the choice, but i am willing to let you choose if there is one you really want the extra of sooner.  :BlueDumboSmile:

I managed to squeeze in a bit of the "Happy Frogs" & "Arabian Bloom" for you as well! The Jungle Paisley that you see is actually the back of your Tie Dye Blue Stripes Pocket, & the pictured Tie Tye Blue Stripes Pocket has Happy Frogs on the other side.

Also... for those of you who were following up on the little bunny Tucker, (one of our previous "Rescue of the Month Donations", I just received an update regarding his eye surgery. According to Samantha of Hops & Lops Tennessee Rabbit Rescue, Tucker did indeed have his eye removal surgery & everything went splendidly. He is now still half blind & half deaf, but in great health, & has been adopted by one of their special needs volunteers. They send a big thanks to everyone who helped donate towards his surgery, & want you all to know that he is doing great! They are also busy attempting to nurse another little bunny back to health, so everyone be sure to send good thoughts their way for him!

I got my order in the mail today!

Thanks so much Violet, they are absolutely gorgeous!
I wish I had the time to get them into the cage and take some pictures before I left my house.  :yelcutelaugh:

Lots of pictures of my rats enjoying their hammies when I get back on the 21st, I promise!

 :wave2: Hi, do you still have some of that hot air balloon fabric left......  maybe enough to make another Spoiled Rotten Package?  :cheeky: For the babies, Bravo and Baby's FF.  See, this is why I am on a self-imposed spending freeze........ no will-power!! :yelcutelaugh: But, I could fall off the wagon for that fabric!!

critterchic:  :poke: You know how I'd hate to encourage you, but I believe I still have some of a few different hot air balloon fabrics, so I'll need to know which one, or ones, you would want to use to be able to give you a definite answer. I'm almost certain I could get a spoiled rotten package if it were from a mix and match of the fabrics, but let me know which one/or ones you we're wanting & I'll check how much I have left. Also, I'd need to know what choices you'd want for your spoiled rotten package to measure exactly.

 :wave2: Hi there! Well, the little boys really love the Peek-A-Boo Playhouse, so could you do one in the small (#141) and a SRP with a mix of the other hot air ballon fabric? The Bungalow and the rest in the small size. It will be for the FF not the FN, although I am sure it will make it into the FN at some point! :yelcutelaugh:


With baby blue and red fleece! I have liner's in those colors already. :thumbsup2:

Baby and Bravo love this so much I hang it in their cage just about every other week! This is my R695, the work cage. My two sets of boys go to work with me every other day. If Coco would play well with other's they all could come every day!

I was actually thinking yesterday (as I was hanging my still-pristine-despite-MANY-uses playhouse) that you might want to start making your hammocks a little *less* well so that we can all get more hammocks more often   :cheeky:

Hi again! :wave2: I haven't looked, but was wondering do you have any fabric in Superman or Spiderman themes? My friends seven year old son has three boys and really loves those super hero's. So if you have those or could get them I would love to order a Peek-A-Boo Playhouse for him.

So, I talked to my friend today and her son is about to turn eight and is no longer into super hero's, he is into skulls and skeletons! Who know that the cut off age for super hero's was eight? :yelcutelaugh: So if you have any skulls or skeleton fabric and can make a Peek-A-Boo Playhouse that would be great. Thanks!

Critterchic: Ha, funny how quick they grow up, huh!  :yelcutelaugh:

I currently have these pirate skulls which I could do a complete Playhouse out of. I still cannot believe this fabric hasn't been used yet, as I absolutely adore it  :cheeky::
(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3423/3743295266_22689ba545.jpg)

& I have a bit left of these skulls on grey, not enough for a full solid playhouse, but it could be used with another fabric in a patchwork Playhouse.
(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3341/3552576318_ee9dd0b862.jpg)

I'm still planning on going to Joanns friday though & have a note to look for any skulls or skeletons fabric. If you see anything you like on the Joanns website, send me a PM with a few links to the fabrics you like & I'll have a better idea what to look for! Either way, I'll PM you friday afternoon with what I find.  :BlueDumboSmile:

I am going to JoAnn's tonight so I will look around for any skull fabric I think he might like. Not sure about the pirate skulls, but would work if we don't find anything else. I am going tonight to look at fleece for liner's for Coco and Captain's birthday cage (yay!), next week their cage will be all deck out with their birthday SRP!! Can't wait to decorate it.

So I found some skull fabric, kind of creepy, but he will probably love it. The sku # is 833-1795 and it's on sale. I was thinking with black fleece or flannel. Let me know if you can do it. Thanks!! :BlueDumboSmile:

Weird, either it is new or sold "in store" only. I just looked through the entire novelty section and it is not there. Do you have a store near you? If not I can get the fabric and send it to you, no problem.

Lol, you aren't crazy He is I think a blue agouti rex hooded. His rex is so good that he may actually be a harley coat, not sure there. Love him to pieces. He's over 3 yrs though, so I won't have the joy of him for as long as I'd like.. picked him up at the shelter about 2 mos ago.

* * * I will be petsitting from August 26th to September 6th & will not have easy access to my fabrics while I am gone. Those of you who have already placed orders are set to go, your fabrics are cut out & are going with me. Those of you who had mentioned ordering soon, I'd advise to try and get your orders in before August 26th so I can grab those fabrics as well. Please feel free to still place any orders you'd like during that timeframe, but understand that there might be a slight time delay in getting your order completed. I'll also still be checking goosemoose & email daily, I'll just have to wait until I get back to my fabric stash to complete any orders placed during the time I am away from home.  :BlueDumboSmile: * * *

Nightmelody: Your order is set to go & ready when you are! I'll PM you & have a photo of it up tomorrow morning.  :thumbsup2:

The only table to sew with here is wobbly to say the least, so I'm saving the hard hammies til I get home to my real setup. I can't wait to see little rattum faces peeking out of billions and billions of hot air balloons!!!  :BlueDumboSmile:

Tasha: I can't wait to see what your rats think of it! Its really bright & fun, I hope your new rats love it! & congratulations on your newest additions, Kat really does such wonderful things for those lucky rattum pies!

Italianqt: well, you said so many wonderful things about Wee Companions, how could I resist!  :poke:

Nomi: I always think its so great to see parents involved with their childrens rats (or any animal, for that matter). I'm so used to hearing the "eww, rats" perspective, it's refreshing to see people who really get what great animals these loving creatures can be!

She always wanted me to get a kitty when I moved away to college, and she was definitely apprehensive at first, but she more or less resolved them to be permanent, fickle kittens after she met them. She spoils her cats so I guess she now wants to spoil my rats just as much. Apparently she took a picture of them to her work and tried to convince her co-workers that there was no "ew" factor involved!

anandatashie: they actually went in the mail monday morning as when I got to the post office saturday to mail them, I found out the post office in this town is closed saturdays  :doh: ... another small town. but even monday morning should have gotten them to you sooner than that, so I'm sorry to hear of the delay. I honestly think our post office ships slower than it should. But... I'm happy to hear it got there safe, & I hope your new babies love it!

Schrute: Received & responded!  :BlueDumboSmile:  I'm pretty darn sure I have enough, but since I'm near Joanns, let me know & I'll nab another yard or two if they have it.

I am returning from petsitting tonight, so I will resume sewing at a normal pace again tomorrow (very little got done order wise while I was here as the only table to sew on was very very wobbly & I didn't want to mess up anyones orders.  :doh: ) But tomorrow I will begin a sewing marathon and again, I thank everyone with orders currently placed for your patience! I will be getting all orders out as quickly as possible & in the order received, as well as working to complete Rhinelander Rat Rescues Donation of hammies, a donation for Rat Haven Santuary & a few other items. All orders will be posted here as completed.  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:

Hi Violet!

Sorry this is so late. After I got home from vacation, I couldn't find my digital camera charger. I've now realized I probably forgot it at the hotel.  :doh: So, before I manage to find it somewhere to order it, I can only share very low resolution, dark cell phone pictures.  :confused:

But I absolutely love the hammocks! They are beautiful, and my rattums all really enjoy them too.

Uh. Crash WAS in the hammock when I got my phone out...haha.
(http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a251/HeroinJim/TopLevel-1.jpg)

The last is the real crowd pleaser. Every time I look in the girls are usually cuddled up on top of that one, or poking their noses out of the lower level.  :heart:

Thanks again for the lovely hammocks.

applecavy: woo hoo! I'm so glad they like their new hammies! Your rattums look adorable, even in the low lighting! I also adore the name Crash by the way! Never heard that one before!

I will definitely get around to getting the wonderful photos everyone has shared up on my website, I'm still slammed with hammocks to make so my website is woefully behind on updating. Do know that I'm getting these out as quickly as possible, & all hammock donations are still going to be sent out, they're just taking longer than usual. Thanks for bearing with me!  :love5:

critterchic: I don't normally post "teaser" photos, but the Playhouse you ordered in the Skulls fabric you found is too nice to not show off! Seriously, I really didn't like this fabric so much when I picked it up, & now I want a playhouse for my bubs in it! It made for a fantastically manly playhouse, especially with the black fleece.  :headbang: Here is a sneak peak for you, & I expect to have your package in the mail tomorrow... only two more hammocks to go...  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:

that skull fabric is really nice.. wanted to share a few pics of my monkeys! I absolutely adore it all. I actually can't fit the entire set in my CN so I have a pocket bunker actually rigged in my carrier for the couple going to work with me tomorrow.

Nightmelody: Just look at those gorgeous rattum pies!!! & is that a beige hooded, I didn't know there was such a thing? I'm so glad you like them, and that there seems to be more than enough for your lucky bunch! It's going to be a bit before I start on your next batch as I'm swamped with hammocks to make right now (& woefully behind on my rescue donations so I need to get my butt cranking), but rest assured, your rattums will be getting more hammocks. It's almost like being on a hammock bundle of the month club, huh?  :poke: Lucky rats, indeed!

Critterchic: Signed, sealed, & almost delivered! You worked me hard this time, but your Super Duper Spoiled Rotten Package is in the mail & should be there in a few. I can't wait to see what you think, & what that fine little 8 year old thinks as well! Tell him if he doesn't like it, I'll gladly take it back!  :poke: :yelcutelaugh: Heres a photo of the completed package, & thanks so much!!!

Vi - no big deal, you know I am not in any hurry. That is my Edward, I am not sure what color he would be called. His hood and stripe are a really pretty orangey bronze color. He and his brothers are kind of silly though. most skittish rats I have ever met, no matter how much I handle them. Emmett even still squeaks when i pick him up. silly boys. Critterchic's bundle looks awesome! glad I'm not the only one who likes hot air balloons!   :BlueDumboSmile: I also will pm you pics of my newest rescue, Kieran. He's a Hairless dumbo who would be a dark eyed white, i believe. Cute as a button. just a bit of fuzz on his head and butt. Don't think he'll be up for adoption, I think he will end up part of my permanent crew, cause he's too much of a doll for me to let him go.

Eek, your comment totally slipped through the cracks!  :doh: I'm so glad that Cecilia likes her new Pocket Bunker, & glad to see she has modified it to make it just a bit more homey! She is darling, by the way! Is she just a youngin, or is she really such a tiny little bub? She looks so small to me.

critterchic: woo hoo!!!  :hyper: that last picture had me rolling on the floor...now that's what I call approval! Yup, Alex definitely looks like a young man who appreciates skulls!  :headbang:... -sulks away to make another skull playhouse-  :yelcutelaugh: (Actually, I already have another order for an identical skulls playhouse, so I guess I'll have to get in line)

The comfort pack my mother spoiled me with arrived today! It's GORGEOUS. I cannot say enough how beautiful it looks. I'm also happy to say that the girls were almost as excited as I was, too! I don't have the most accessible cage for showing off the inside but I tried. It matches so well with my dark and light green shelf mats and my dark blue pan liner. Simply perfect! I was also excited that it came with matching plastic rings :D

Two rats, two locations, one picture! Scooter claimed the top all to herself and Ruby jumped down below to investigate.

So glad to see that they both approve. That last photo looks like such a proud rattum with his new hammie!  :BlueDumboSmileTongue: & is Ruby the "big" rattum I was hearing so much about? She doesn't look so big...  :poke:

Update:

My sewing machine just died on me today, and while I have a backup I am losing a bit of time taking it apart & working with my father to see if it can be fixed. I'm hoping to still get all orders out by their estimated date of completion, but I hope everyone understands if I lose a few days trying to get my baby back (I love my machine... I'm sure most hammock makers share this odd sense of bond). I should know by tomorrow evening if my baby can be revived, but will still be working on all remaining orders on our "twin" machine (same machine, just rigged for much heavier material).

Everyone think happy thoughts to bring him back in one piece. I've worked that poor thing awfully hard...  :-\

Schrute: Thanks so much for sharing! That fabric looks fantastic in your cage, especially with all the color you have already in there. But where are the ratties? I've been dying to see what yours look like...I don't believe I have seen them yet? In either case, I hope they love their new hammocks. Definitely some spoiled rats you have there!



Update:

Well, my old machine is officially dead. The motor crapped out after I worked the living daylights out of it for so long. I have to say, I don't really blame it. But... I've now replaced it with a slightly older machine, & after being about 3 days behind schedule, I will resume sewing up all current orders tomorrow morning. Thanks again to everyone for their patience & understanding. I'm still hoping to avoid delays, but will notify anyone if their order appears to be behind schedule.

In the meantime, come take a peek at my "new" old baby. She seems to be in fantastic condition, & pretty soon we'll be staining the cabinet cherrywood & adding fancy pulls to make it even that much more spectacular. I'm still kind of stunned that I actually own something this fantastically old!  :yelcutelaugh:

Neelia: Definitely keep your eye out on craigslist as I see quite a few on in my area (mostly with the treadle though). I'd say just research the weak points & what to look out for online for those machines & bring someone mechanical to give it a great go over, & try your own sewing with it to be sure that it works for you, and there you go. I have to say, I cringed at even spending the $65 as my car desperately needs tires & I just finally saved enough, but after seeing what this machine can do, all anxiety is gone.... & seriously, just look at that beauty. I can't even imagine that that's what I'm going to be working on daily soon. They just don't make them like that anymore.  :love5: :love5: :love5: :love5:

I feel you on the cage cleaning, I'm due for my rotation today. Too bad the little ones weren't "self cleaning" models.  :cheeky:

LoveMyPets81: Thanks for the kind words. I really do enjoy whipping up items for everyones spoiled bunches. You are welcome to place an order anytime you like, once I get back into the swing of sewing after my few day hiatus I should be able to fly through these again. & if it makes you feel any better, I myself do not know how to sew a button. Shameful, I know, just never had the need. everyone I know laughs at me because all my clothes are rigged with safety pins, yet I'm always telling them how busy I am sewing for all the rattum pies. Priorities!  :yelcutelaugh: ... Anyways, any questions you have or if you're ready to order, just send me a PM or email & we'll get you going!  :thumbsup2:

My grandma is a sewing freak. she has literally 100 sewing machines, ancient and new, so i might talk to her and see if she has any that i could have, or even just go to her house and use them there as she could teach me all sorts of new and interesting things. Which i think i might do.

when you make your cubes and things, do you put any padding in with them like between layers (when you do double colors?)

krazycatlady: while its definitely a fine looking machine, I'd check with other forum members & read up on it, as from what little knowledge I currently have on the matter, I was under the impression that the "clone" machines were generally of inferior quality for workmanship. I honestly don't know much on the topic, but definitely something to read up on. I'm sure many forum members would be able to give a much more informed opinion on how well those type of machines generally work & hold up. Still though, a beautiful look if nothing else!  :BlueDumboSmile:

As for the cubes, I've never actually worked with padding, but know many other sellers on here do & would probably be able to make a padded cube of higher quality than my first attempts might turn out like. I'd be willing to try, but I can't guarantee it will be as nice than the other sellers with experience doing so.  :yelcutelaugh:

Your welcome Violet. I am looking at your website and trying to decide what I like lol. Also trying to determine if it would fit in a Martins properly.  :)

LoveMyPets, which item are you concerned about fitting in the martin's cage and which cage do you have?

I have found that 7" cubes fit perfectly on the shelves, and under them.  Voilet's medium sized hammies all fit great.  My rats absolutely love her bunker beds.  Four to five adult rats can all sleep on the top portion of that hammie and still fit under the flap.  Mine love to sleep with their little heads sticking out.

I was looking at the bungalow cube and the cavern thing. I have a r695 cage. Thanks Weaver.
Title: Re: <:3 )~ The Rat Stash ~ Halloween Fabrics pg 17!!!
Post by: WEAVER on September 23, 2009, 11:26:11 AM
Both of those items will fit, but you will have to buy the smaller sizes.  When you hang them in your cage, they will only fit in sections right in front of the doors (the larger sections), not the shelving.  Hope that helps ;)

LoveMyPets81: Did you just place an order for a Creature Comfort Package? If so, since I was reading your conversation with Weaver, I just want to make sure you want an 8"x8" bungalow (which will be about 10"-11" in height, pre rattum-weighdown of course!). Since I am unfamiliar with that cage, I would trust Weavers opinion on what will/wont fit properly. If another size bungalow is needed (7"x7" or other dimension), just give the word, as I can absolutely change the sizing on one!

Weaver: Thanks so much for helping out. I have an FN, so its hard for me to envision other size cages! I'm glad to hear so many rattum pies can cram into just one hammie too!

I feel bad to keep budding in, but I just wanted to say that the 8" or 10" will fit if hanging it in the main portion of the cage.  A 7" regular cube will fit on the shelves, but the bungalow has the hanging part made under the cube and it won't fit in a Martin's anywhere but the main sections. :wink5:

Post by: LoveMyPets81 on September 23, 2009, 04:16:52 PM
So you mean the open parts at the top or bottom then? Hmmm....wondering if I should just do a cube then....if itll fit better in other areas. Hard to picture what it would look like in there,but I can understand how it wouldnt fit with the shelves. Such hard decisions lol. And yes that was my order,with the dino squares. Weaver,you think I would be better off with a standard cube?
Title: Re: <:3 )~ The Rat Stash ~ Halloween Fabrics pg 17!!!
Post by: Violet976 on September 23, 2009, 05:37:21 PM
One thing you might be able to do is get a bungalow but just let it sit flat on the bottom part when you want it on the shelves, so it would work like a cube, but you could still use it as a bungalow if you wanted. According to Weaver you would need a 7"x7" cube on the bungalow, which I could totally do. As far as I can tell a bungalow would have no problem being used a a cube.  :BlueDumboSmile: Either way is fine as they are both options on the Creature Comfort Package, so just let me know when you decide.

Here is a photo of bungalows sitting flat. I can't guarantee the buggins wont try to eat the bottom though. Every rat is different on that sort of thing!  :yelcutelaugh:

LoveMyPets81:  Sounds great, I've notated a 7"x7" Bungalow on your order, shouldn't be any problem there!

BellaBooks: Your Skulls Playhouse & Day of the Dead Burrow are complete & will be shipping out tomorrow for you! Lighting was horrid, so take my work that the Burrow Hammock is much brighter in person!  & I just love the way the swirly skulls line up with the hole on the playhouse. Such a neat fabric! Thanks so much for your purchase, & I can't wait to see what your rats think of their new toys.

I think Voilet's idea of setting the Bungalow on the shelf (using it like a cube)and than being able to hand it at a later time is a really good idea.  :)  I use quite a few 7" cubes in my cage and put a litter pan on the small shelf beside it.  The cube does a great job of hiding the pan :wink5:

I FINALLY got around to uploading pics of the awsome beds I got from you! I just adore the playhouse :bow: Whats so cool about it is it's almost like an extra level in Teddy's cage. His favorite spot is right on top. I don't even know how he can moosh his 1 1/2 pound self up there, but thats where I always find him (though he runs when i try to take a picture :P).

Anhoo, I'll start with Teddys cage first:

RottenApplesss: Thanks! That was actually a fabric another member picked out from Joanns, & it worked out really well for the playhouse. That is now the 2nd playhouse made in that fabric, and both looked really nice. I'm so used to seeing "friendlier" hammocks, its really cool to see some manly ones thrown in as well!  :headbang:

Rodent_girl_1985: Woo hoo, there's that fantastic Pirate Playhouse! Another great manly hammie! It looks like it fits in there perfectly too, which is great to see! Your cages are fantastically fun, by the way! Mine never look so well matched. Thanks again, I'm still totally loving the Carebears Batcave, so you can bet you'll be hearing from me again when I get caught up! Those Batcaves are amazing! :thumbsup2:

OK everyone, my brain is on autopilot lately and I need another rescue for next months donations. So if theres a rescue near & dear to you (must be a known reputable rescue that I can verify), go ahead and let me know so I can start making a list of rescues for upcoming months. So far we've done Wee Companions, Capital City Rat Rescue, Rhinelander Rat Rescue, & Hops & Lops Tennessee Rabbit Rescue. I'd like to get some new rescues in the rotation... So come on everyone, lets get a nice list going! Feel free to email or PM me the rescues of your choice if you'd like!

Thanks so much guys! I've gotten a few responses so far, and any rescues I haven't heard of I will be researching over the next few days. I will be making a list to keep handy so I don't have to fret over which rescues to pick for upcoming months. Sooo, if you know of a rescue you think is getting overlooked, PM me with the names (& websites, if you know them) so I can get them on my list of donations! & they don't necessarily have to be rat rescues, the can be small animal type rescues as well (so bunny rescues are absolutely welcomed!)

 Thanks guys, this will make things much easier for me!  :BlueDumboSmile:

So far we have added:

Mainely Rat Rescue
Rabbit Habit
Have a Heart Guinea Pig Rescue
HVRR
RatzenMauzers
Stars Rat Rescue

First of all, Yay for Mainely Rat Rescue! I foster for them, and there's a bunch of ratties at the moment. So many that the tireless foster coordinator/website updator hasn't had a chance to get them all on the web! On a personal note, my husband & I are getting a litter to raise for them! I'm not sure what the story behind the pregnancy is, but we are planning on getting the mother surrendered on Monday. The person who is surrendering them emailed the foster coordinator, and it looks like she popped last night with...drumroll...TWELVE eepers! Our house is going to be full of bouncing babies!

Second of all, our Skull Playhouse and Day of the Dead Burrow hammocks came today, and I am SO HAPPY with the way they turned out! I can't wait for the cage clean so we can get them hung up! Thanks, Violet!

Found it! Eyes were closed or something! :doh:

critterchic: Well, who am I to discourage a determined buyer?  :poke: :yelcutelaugh: Its tough to measure out without the exact order, but I believe that can be done. Go ahead and PM me with your hammock/sizing choices for the creature comfort package & your sizing for the bunker & I'll be able to give you a definite answer on fabric availability. I don't anticipate running short, but I can always look for more of that print if I am. That print is adorable, by the way! One of the ones I've been dying to see in use! I adore halloween!  :hyper:

bellabooks: my goodness, 12 little ones is the main reason I didn't let minxie go through with her pregnancy (that, and she was so so tiny & young). living in a non rat friendly area, I can't imagine rehoming so many. But I'm envious that you get to raise the little ones, that seems like a wonderful experience! You'll definitely have to share some pics with me & let me know how worn out they've gotten you!

Woo hoo, the hammocks arrived! Can't wait to see them with some pattums in there, gonna be a nice halloween setup you'll have!

I wish my bubs would snooze on their hammies the way yours do!!! I swear mine reject my own hammies! Its great to see that your handsome bubs actually get the drift of them!



~ Update ~
Ok everyone, once again I am going to be petsitting until saturday or later, and this time I may not have internet access at that house. If that's the case I will drop by my moms house to check emails & such, but will probably only be on once a day so responses may take longer. For anyone who's already gotten orders in or spoken to me about an order, I have EVERYONES orders cut out & going with me so there should be no reason for delay. I will also be checking in with my father to see if any packages/payments anyone was sending have arrived, so no delays there either.

Also, orders can still be placed while I'm away, but at this point you could be looking at a 3-4 week wait for completion, so do keep that under consideration. I may be able to get orders done more quickly than that, but to be on the safe side I am sticking by the original estimated completion date given at the time you place your order. Thanks for your understanding, and wowsa to you all for keeping me crazy busy! 

:poke: ...if this keeps up, I'm shutting down for christmas, I'm afraid of what you guys might do to me...  :yelcutelaugh:
...You guys rock!

Nightmelody: Well hi again, you must have sensed your set was just about done!  :poke: Ahh, that Betta fabric was fantastic, I should have snagged a hammock for myself outta that one. Good to see it went to a great home though! I'd say at this point I would recommend at least inquiring into a creature comfort package about three weeks before you'd like it to be complete, as orders seem to slam me all at once & it gets tough to guess sometimes. & if you have a fabric/fabrics in mind let me know sooner than later so I can set them aside before anyone snags them! ... But the real reason I'm sneaking on today... Your Spoiled Rotten Package is complete & will be shipping out tomorrow. The fabric is stunning as always. I can't wait to see this with rattums in it!

LOTR_Ratties: Your Day of the Dead Pocket Bunker is complete & will be shipping out tomorrow as well! I absolutely love it against the tie dye yellow fleece, so hopefully you'll agree! Do let me know what the rattums think! I would have loved to get a pic of it hanging, but theres no good photo ops at this house.  :-\  :yelcutelaugh:

Bellabooks: my goodness, I just saw the youngins. I don't even know what you do with something so tiny! Bet you're gonna be sad when someone snags them away from you.  :poke:



As for everyone else... I am now officially through 1/3 of the orders & things are moving right along. At this point I expect to have all remaining orders out by their estimated completion date, but I'm expecting to be done with most even sooner. Also, the final amount raised for Wee Companions was $34. I will be announcing this months rescue in the next few days so keep a lookout!

Your package had perfect timing. Just as I was sitting down to figure out what set I was going to use this week, the dogs started barking, the doorbell rang, and there was your package with the Hot Air Balloons Set! Made My Day.

I paired it with blue liners, since it's a bit girlie, and my crew is mostly boys now(I won't tell them they have girlie hammocks, I love them!)
It all looks fantastic, here are a few pics:

OOOhhh it was so exciting getting the mail yesterday, because I got my hammie!! It is gorgeous, well-made, and BIG! I hung it up in the boys cage last night, but they didn't show any interest at the time. But this morning I came in here to give Precious his meds, to find him sleeping in the bottom part of the bunker!! He got out before I had a chance to snap a photo, but I'll keep trying. :wink5: Anyway, thank you!!

Nightmelody & Bellabooks:  :hyper: You guys rock! I sooo needed happy rattum pictures today, and those ones did the trick! Kat, thats quite a cute little bunch you have there! I can't even imagine that many rattum pies can squeeze onto a size small. I guess rats are good at squishing, huh? & Jennifer, Horton looks so handsome there with his buddy. I just love how they match the color scheme. Its about time we got some manly hammocks out in the rotation!



 :poke: There are still some premades up for sale on pg 19! Snag em while you can, cuz at the end of the week I plan on sending most of the remaining ones off to some forever homes!  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:

Some VERY happy customer shots!!!
I bought my first playhouse a few months ago and Boy has it gone to good use, my ratties LOVE it!
And I am amazed and please to say neither hammock has been chewed in the least, even though I have a population of 20 that includes some real chew happy ratties.  Thank you so much, Violet, for your great, extremely well made creations!!
Here are some shots of my boys hanging in the hammocks.

Post by: Violet976 on October 11, 2009, 01:42:57 PM
Critterchic: The tunnels are actually extra extra wide, as I chose to error on the side of fattum rattums. I would guess that a ferret could weasel his butt through those tunnels if a ferret so chose to, but alas, I have no ferrets on hand to test that theory. So, if your fat manrats can't do it, I believe you have bigger problems than my tunnel sizing!  :poke:   
Can't wait for you to see it in person. It's so much better in person... I keep sneaking in thinking, "maybe she wont miss just a few"...  :cheeky: 

& I still have some more of that fantastic fabric, but I snagged the end of the roll last time so when it's gone, its gone. and I know another member already has dibs on some of it for their order.   :cheeky:

Seriously, I just love halloween!!!

Thanks for the beautiful feedback on Robyn's wonderful Halloween Set! It was a lot of fun to make & I'm sure we'll all be anxiously awaiting the pictures of those handsome rattums enjoying it!  :poke:  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:



&, a little late this month due to orders, but here is September's Rescue of the Month Donation for Wee Companions. A total of $34 was raised thanks to you all & will be forwarded tomorrow with the Premades hammock donation & some fleece scraps if I can squeeze em' into the box! You guys are all just wonderful & I'm certain Wee Companions sends out a huge thanks from them & all their rattums!  :thumbsup2: I also sewed up a cute 3 piece set with the fleece rubber duckies. One is a teeny tiny hammie, so hopefully Wee Companions has a tiny rattum or two to enjoy that one!  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:

 :wave2: so, just wanted to share that your tunnels are apparently the new stashing place of choice for the Mr Jasper. As soon as I put food in, Lucy, Jasper and Drustan all start madly stashing away, and then they steal from each other's stashes for their own. Eventually, Lucy and Drustan get tired of it(or give up?) and Jasper wins. I thought they were going through a ton of food, cause I couldn't find any anywhere this week. Then this afternoon when I went to change the cage out, I noticed the center of the tunnel had actually opened the rings and fallen down. what did I find inside? :cookie:  5 pounds or so of lab block, and a few chew blocks!  :doh: lol! Wanted to show you, and now I know where to check first!

I attempted to get some fantastic new christmas fabrics today, but could only find one that appealed to me. So... just one more fabric to add to the stash, but its a cute one!  :BlueDumboSmile:...

& anyone who has already placed christmas orders, I will be sure to check in with each of you before I begin your orders to make sure you don't want to switch to any new christmas fabrics that may have been added, so no worries!

Critterchic: Sadly, I only have enough left of #130 Rattums for an 8x8 cube, or maybe one or two other small hammocks depending on what type you might like. I bought everything they had left when I bought it, & don't see anymore online anywhere. But... if you wanted a rat themed Creature Comfort, I also have this cute little number:

Krazycatlady: I know, I'm so excited to make christmas items. Unfortunately, I'm also very very picky on fabrics so I don't find a lot of holiday prints I want to buy. So... if you find any on Joanns website that are spot on, shoot me an email with the links & I'll be happy to see if my Joanns has them.  :thumbsup2:

krazycatlady: seriously, I ADORE that rattums feliz navidad fabric, and will most definitely be trying to get my hands on that one. I was told they would even order it at the store if they didn't have the fabric I wanted, and perhaps I can skate by shipping that way. And as for the Snoopy Autumn print, they have a really adorable one at Walmart and I keep passing it by because I thought I was the only one who liked snoopy anymore. Now I may have to go get it!  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:



LoveMyPets: Score, I'm so happy it made there & that you like it! I really liked that fabric & was surprised it wasn't gone sooner. As for christmas orders, I'm advising everyone if they can, try to order in november.  I have no idea how bad orders are going to get, but I already have a few christmas orders in and its not even november yet.  :-\

our walmart USED to have a HUGE fabric section but after they remodeled they did away with all of it  >:( I was pretty peeved when i went to get fabric and nothing was there anymore.

but i have a joanns and michaels which i think is over priced, i love joanns though i love raiding their scraps bin, thats where my liners and hammocks come from until i can save up enough to order some  :yelcutelaugh:

Same here krazycatlady!! We now have a Super Walmart but its not so super...heh..I think only one walmart around here has fabric anymore...only other one I saw that has it is way north nj...we have a joanns just gotta wait for some sales to get anything...
Title: Re: <:3 )~ The Rat Stash ~ Handmade Gifts for Fuzzy Friends!!!
Post by: Violet976 on October 14, 2009, 10:59:48 PM
Actually, I've found that with Joanns, you're better off missing most of the sales & waiting to use the 40% & 50% off coupons on the regular prices. And I know recently we got a whole bunch of great coupons to use through Dec, they have them on the back of a $3 Simplicity Pattern booklet on the pattern counter. We bought 3 booklets so we have about 20 coupons or so good til the end of the year. that way we can almost always get 40-50% off if we just wait til the sales are over.  :BlueDumboSmile:

...the above advice in no way applies to the Thanksgiving 3 Day Sale. That is a must attend. I cannot even state how stoked I am. I'm going to try and make & sell some fantastic premades to fund my spending on that one!  :yelcutelaugh:

LoveMyPets81: I'm probably not the best one to ask, as its really just going to be my second Thanksgiving Joanns Sale. But last year the printed blizzard fleece was $3 a yard, and I heard one year the snuggle flannel was $1 a yard. & last year you got an extra 20% off your purchase if you got there before noon. Definitely something worth checking out!  :thumbsup2:

Petunia: I am sooo glad that you like them. The stars and moons is really great too, as we happened to stumble onto a great "bedtime" looking fleece for it. Can't see it in the picture, but you will... soon...   :cheeky: & you managed to snag up the very last of both fabrics, so they're kind of extra special now!  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:



Critterchic: Score... I am dying to see that set in use. I was so very, very sad to put that one in a package & mail it off. I wanted an identical one to just magically appear in my cage. I'm still trying to fly through orders so I can find time to get a few halloween hammocks myself for the rattum pies! Can't wait to see your crew in their new halloween digs!  :hyper:

 :hyper: Wow, you guys rock! Thanks so much to each of you for posting such fantastic Happy Rattums photos, they truly are appreciated & I will most definitely be adding them to the website when I get some spare time to do so!


Critterchic:
  :shocked2: There's that handsome crew of yours!!! I have been anxiously, uh, I mean patiently...patiently... waiting to see that set in action, and I love love love it! It really looks like you went all out this year, I absolutely adore all of the halloween goodies you've gotten to dress up the cage. The halloween decoration on the front looks great, & I love those little witchy green & purple striped buckets you have in there. Definitely a fantastic job, I would love to see that cage sitting in my room right now!  :puppy_dog_eyes:


LOTR_Ratties: Precious is just to die for, such a great name for a nakie pattum!   :wink5: I hope ?he? is feeling better soon. My bubs are fighting off an unrelenting URI themselves right now (baytril/zitho), so I'll be thinking good thoughts for yours as well. Anytime you want to trade, you just let me know. You know how badly I want that Black Day of the Dead fabric you have!!!  :poke:

LoveMyPets81: Score...there's that Dino Set! I was really hoping I'd get to see that one with some ratters in it, as that really was such a fun fabric! Goes great with that monkey fabric as well! ahhh, and I just love your boys. they look like three little versions of my baby verdell, back before he got all pudgy & such!  :love5:

Nightmelody: Right on, that made it there pretty quick, either that or I'm just losing track of time!  :yelcutelaugh: The set looks wonderful in your cage! I'm still hoping to whip up one more so I can have it if no one nabs it up. must.have.halloween.set. I'm gonna be so bummed if I'm the only one without one...  :puppy_dog_eyes:

Weaver: Oh, I adored that tunnel! I was so sad to see it go, as it was just about the last of the rattums fabric! Glad it made it to such a nice home, and that cage of yours you posted in another thread is just AWESOME! Seriously, I can't imagine how much fun your rattums have in that thing!  :hyper:

Update:

Ok everyone, I just wanted to give you guys a heads up that our current estimated wait time on orders is now 4 weeks.  :doh: So, for anyone thinking of getting items in for christmas, just something to keep in mind for how much time to allow. This may ease up if I can play catch up, but at this point I can't make any guarantees. I am going to try and have some christmas premades to fall back on if I can squeeze those in, but I'm also planning to donate many many hammocks to rescues as well, so we'll see how that goes.

Which brings me to my question:


- I was hoping this year to donate $10.35 Flat Rate Boxes of hammocks to as many rescues as I could sew up for. Since I don't know how many I can get done, my plan was to sew up a flat rate box full & post it up for grabs. I was hoping in the spirit of the holiday season, a few kind souls might be willing to cover the $10.35 shipping cost if they could choose which reputable rescue it was mailed off to. I've already snatched up fabric to be used just for holiday rescue donations, and both my wonderful parents have offered to help cut fabric & sew to get even more up and out to some needy rattums. So... just out of curiosity, is this something anyone would be willing to contribute to if they could pick a reputable rescue of their choice for the box of hammocks to go to? I would be posting pics of the contents of each box as I could make enough to fill one, and then they would be up for grabs to the first person willing to cover the shipping and select a reputable rescue. Please, anyone willing to participate/or thinks they might, please let me know.  :thumbsup2:

Post by: Nightmelody on October 21, 2009, 11:27:42 PM
I am totally willing to donate a box, but will have to figure out which rescue... I think there's one in AZ that my good friend alex will be adopting from soon, so maybe them, but i gotta figure out who they are.. maybe Star's? I'll let you know what i figure out or if i choose another...

if anyone tried to climb in with her, she'd run them off

I wanted to let you know that my boy, Teddy, looooves his Pirate playhouse. His fav spot is right on top. All of my rats love your items. My other boy, Howl, has claimed the fantacy bunker as his own. The 3 girls that have the kitty bunker have found an alternate use for it. Their using it as a potty :P :doh: (don't take it personally, they just want something pretty and soft to pee on)

Petunia: Clair is just Darling! & I love that she has such a spunky, "my hammock" personality! & the "oopsie raisin" made my day, I don't even bother worrying over poopers in the photos anymore. Anyone who owns rats is well aware of that inviting aspect of rodent ownership! :BlueDumboSmileTongue:
That hammock was my favorite of the colorful snails bunch, and its so funny to think I debated for so long over whether or not that tie dyed yellow worked.  :doh:  :yelcutelaugh: so happy the hammies found their way to a great home!



rodent_girl_1985: Score. Its actually quite funny when you stop to think about it. we should start a thread... "what ratties really do with nice pretty hammocks (not for weak stomachs)".  :yelcutelaugh: Can you just imagine the destruction factor? I'm so happy your bubs love the new toys though, even if they did designate one as the short straw!  :BlueDumboSmileTongue: rats will be rats!



petunia & nightmelody: You guys are both awesome! I can't even tell you. I will definitely be posting boxes as available as I am able to fill each new one, and you guys will both have first pick if you want to help mail one out! & with huge thanks to Petunia, we now have even more fabric to work with for donation hammies!!! Seriously, the generosity in this forum amazes me sometimes!!!  :love5: :love5: :love5:



Cheryl:
Your new 12"x12" Guinea Pig Cubes are ready & set to ship tomorrow for you. Do let me know if either one isn't quite what you were hoping for, but I believe these both fit your themes quite nicely!  :BlueDumboSmile:

Post by: Violet976 on October 23, 2009, 02:47:06 AM
neelia: Thats what I was thinking as well. My goal was to at least get 5 full flat rate boxes out to shelters, but obviously shipping costs add up & my funds are very low. So, I thought this way it could hopefully be a wonderful group effort for a very small cost of the flat rate box, & pretty much win win for everyone. Great low cost way for others to help the shelters for christmas, still a great warm fuzzy feeling for us to see the hammocks off to a great home, and of course, a wonderful holiday package for some wonderful rattums! I'm definitely excited, as it really feels like the real meaning of the holidays is present this year!  :BlueDumboSmile:

Woo! 5 flat rate boxes can fit a whole lot of hammocks! You're going to be insanely busy with that + your orders  ;D I'm hoping to get a couple of decent sized boxes to rescues as well. I want to get started this weekend as it's going to start getting cold soon! Well... maybe not around here  ::)

Ok, the following premades have not been claimed, so I'm giving the original person who requested them until sunday morning & then they are up for grabs to whoever would like them first. They are ready to ship monday morning to whoever requests them first, so please let me know if interested. Can be sold together or separately, so also let me know if you want just one or both. Thanks!

~Pricing Update: Please Read!~


I want to give everyone a heads up that prices will be going up slightly effective Nov. 1 or right thereabouts. Now that I've had enough time to get a good feel for fabric pricing & amount of fabric used per hammock/package, shipping costs per package, and time involved for the items provided, I now have a pretty good base for what the actual expense costs are/time involved per item & what I feel is appropriate for the products offered. I've decided to make it easiest all around, all individual hammock pricing will be increased by $1 each, and the package deals will be increased to $38 for the Creature Comfort & $70 for the Spoiled Rotten. New pricing will be effective the date announced (tentatively Nov. 1st), and will not effect any existing orders already placed. Thanks so much to everyone for their understanding & continued support!  :BlueDumboSmile:

another happy customer photo!! that's my girl Tessa in the bottom of the bunker

she's been a very nervous girl, and it's so wonderful to see her that relaxed! she rarely sleeps in a hammock, preferring to hide in an igloo with as much scrap fabric as she can find pulled in with her.

ahhhhhhhh it does my heart good to see her like that!!

thanks for fabulously well made, fluffy comfy hammocks!

petunia: What a beautiful girl you have there, and its great to see that she is enjoying her new hammie! I adore the whole color scheme of your cage, it has a very nice pastel sort of feel to it! ... as for the adult sized hammie, can you imagine? I'd love to walk into a house & see one of those!



Ok everyone, here is one more Halloween premade, ready & can be in the mail Monday morning!

the girls all piled in together, awwwww

this is exactly what i thought would happen, they'll play on the whole hammock when they are up, but at naptime, i knew i would find them in the top part like this  ;D

i'm so glad that it's a good sturdy, very well-made hammie, a couple of my girls are um, a wee bit on the chunky side *blush*

Louie & Nibs!!! I forgot all about them! They look so much bigger than the first pics I saw! & wowsa, already starting off their days in style... 2 Playhouses?

Thinking about Christmas... looking at a fabric at Jo-Ann's, sku#JFK J 9705260 Santa Swirl. I want to give you plenty of time, so.......

One SRP with meduim hammies, standard cube.
One CCP with meduim hammies and cozy cavern.

Additions: two Playhouses and two tunnel's (ex-large).

I also like your fabric #157, so if you have enough we could do the CCP, one Playhouse and one tunnel in that.

critterchic: Smart girl... you are actually about my fourth christmas order (& it's not even halloween yet!), and boy are the other orders doozies as well! I just measured out the Christmas Patchwork, and I have just enough to get your Creature Comfort package + Large Tunnel + Playhouse. I actually had to draw a diagram of how to cut it out correctly so I can get it all, that's how close it was!  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:

& I just saw the Santa Swirl!!!  :hyper: :hyper: :hyper: I will most definitely be calling Joanns in the AM to see if they have it in stock, as I simply must have that one! I went all through their fabrics & never saw it, but it might be a new arrival. I'll PM you after I contact Joanns & find out if we can get our hands on it.  :thumbsup2:

Okie dokie, I'm going to plan to snatch up 6 yards of the above Santa Swirl fabric as there will already be one big order in this fabric, but if anyone else is going to want a very large order in this, give me a heads up & I'll snatch all 8.

Last day to snatch up any of the Halloween Premades (pictured above)!!! Any not spoken for by midday tomorrow are going to my bubbins!!!  :hyper: :hyper: :hyper:



& for anyone interested in Christmas orders, I am already giving out early December estimates for completion of orders coming through at this time. I may be able to get ahead of schedule, but I'm probably only going to be able to guarantee a few more big orders before I can't promise they will make it before Christmas. Just a heads up.

&, thanks to Critterchic, this fantastic new Christmas fabric is now officially available for the holidays!!!  :hyper:

HotLikePopcorn: Everythings still a go to have yours out by 11/5. I actually only made the Halloween Premades in the hope that whatever didn't sell could go to my bubbins for a Halloween Cage (which I'm putting together right now!!!). I almost done with the order before yours which will be complete tonight, & then I'll be starting yours. So, 11/5 should be the latest yours makes it out, no worries at all on that estimate!  :BlueDumboSmile:

Just had to share! My father has officially begun sewing christmas donation hammocks (on my "new" old 1951 Singer, nonetheless -albeit rigged in his Pfaff cabinet). Here are his first "flat hammocks", and I must say, he's doing a fantastic job! Just wanted to share!

but onto the real reason i'm dropping in... Your Koi Fish Spoiled Rotten package is complete & will be shipping out monday for you! Beautiful fabric pick as usual, & yet another one that looks better in person. The pastels of color in the fabric just don't show in the photograph well!  :love5:

I'm very tempted to place an order soon but it will cut into my Critter Nation fund. That's all that is stopping me!! ;D What is your wait time like at the moment? Early December? :o

evilhobbitgirl: My current wait time right now is insane, I'm giving out mid December estimates at the moment, but I'm slowly gaining ground so I'm hoping to bring all estimates down so I can do christmas orders & premades. By mid december alone, I need to complete 3 Spoiled Rotten Packages, 5 Creature Comfort Packages, 3 Playhouses & 15 other assorted hammocks.   :BlueDumboBigEyes:

I will indeed update if I am able to get ahead of schedule, but at this point I'll probably only guarantee 1 to 2 more larger Christmas orders to make it on time.  :BlueDumboSmile: & yes indeed, my father is doing an incredibly awesome job helping to get orders ahead of schedule by helping with donations! Such a great man!


Nightmelody: You most definitely are going to need another dresser. The load of orders I have down for you will never be accommodated by just one!  :yelcutelaugh:  :poke:


HotLikePopcorn: That's right, I forgot what a tease these hammocks are going to be. Can't wait to see your new bubbins when they arrive, I can't imagine how excited you must be!  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:

i know you are swamped with orders at the moment, but my four girls currently in serious need of some hammocks...
like Spoiled Rotten amount of hammocks. ;) i get paid on monday, and it will take a few days to transfer to paypal, but should i pm you with what i want now?

i have patience and i know not to expect them soon

Post by: Violet976 on November 04, 2009, 09:34:31 PM
Juliebug: If you're sure you want the Spoiled Rotten, I would highly recommend ordering now & I could let you pay next week when you can for two reasons: It will get you next in line in the rotation, and while I'm gaining ground on orders I'm still giving out mid December estimates just to be on the safe side. & it will also allow time for us to work together & get your fabric preferences chosen, as with the Spoiled Rotten packages it sometimes takes some back and forth to figure out what I can acquire from your top fabric picks vs how much I have of my available fabrics. Its entirely up to you, but I have no problem locking your order in and having you pay for it next week when you can. Just let me know!  :thumbsup2:

Donation Time!!!!  :hyper: :hyper: :hyper: I still have M.R.R. to go, but here's what I've whipped up so far & will have out tomorrow:

Juliebug: thanks so much, but it really is because of all of you guys that donations like that are possible!  :love5:



Just an update for everyone since orders are getting pretty tight for the holiday season. I have a few people who have requested items to be held or have placed orders to be paid via USPS money order, yet no contact has since been made & no payment received. I have tried to contact a few individuals via both emails & PMs, & no response has been received. Just in case you are checking here instead, please note that I will not hold any items or hold to estimated dates of completion for orders if no contact has been made regarding payment. Please note that held items will be either donated or placed back as available items, and unpaid orders that we're not previously arranged for with me will be placed at the back of the list of the orders I have to sew. Just a heads up for anyone who did not want to lose their items or their place in line.  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:

The liners all look fantastic!
Got the goldfish/koi package today, and got it into the cage! It looks absolutely awesome in person.  :bow:

There are 3 pics in the CN thread in the HSH section, but here's one of the whole thing.

Nightmelody: Yay! I'm so happy you like them (well, you should since it was your fabric!  :BlueDumboSmileTongue: ) The cage looks amazing, as usual... & I think I spy a rattum pie!!!  :BlueDumboSmile:



Woo hoo!!! A very kindhearted lady donated this wonderful cage & litter tray for our "Not So Secret Santa" Christmas Donations!!! Only problem is it's missing the 4 side connectors that attach the cage to the bottom tray, but I'm working to rig some up. Soooo, once I get a shipping quote this cage will be available with some shelf liners & hammies for some wonderful Not So Secret Santa to ship to their favorite rescue!!!  :BlueDumboSmileTongue: I can't tell you how excited I am!  :hyper:

lol, that is edward before he went back into his usual hiding routine. bit of a chunk he is. I would bet he's nearly 500grams.  :doh:
even though I picked out the fabric and sent it to you, it's been a while since I saw it, and the hammocks turned out even more fabulously than i expected!

well, I had some finished items I wanted to post, but my camera went wonkers (think the battery isn't charging enough), so I'll have to try and get some daytime shots that require no flash & less shutter focus. The new cage donation for our Christmas for Rescues is coming right along though, it now has some cute White Christmas liners & holiday hammies!  :hyper:

I really really loved this one, it had those comforting old style christmas colors that I just adore! I'm with you though, I've been wanting to put up the tree since before Halloween, & I normally wont even think about christmas decorating until after Dec. 10th or so. What is it about this year that's bringing the christmas rush???  :icon_scratch:

Melissa, we received our new hammies a few days ago.  They are beautiful.  I already washed them and have a few of them in their cage.  They are loving the cavern.  I think, they think, it is already a "brokin'-in" cube. :yelcutelaugh:   Hopefully they won't have to make any adjustments. :wink5:

I was drooling over that fabric when I first saw it, plus green is my favorite color, so you picked the perfect fleece to go with it! My Golllum loves the Day of the Dead pocket bunker that I got from you a little while back, so he'll be so happy to have two in the hammie rotation, heehee.

When I got up to the cage, I than noticed SEVEN ratties sleeping together, not just two!
(http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e356/weaverdcw/Ratties/Hammie2.jpg)
Seven full grown rats on a medium hammie.  I don't think I have ever seen them pile up like that.  The only one missing was Wesley, and he was under the cage liner ::)

They are loving their new cavern too.

Hey! I was wondering if you would do a custom order of Martin's 695 cage pads/liners. I am looking for double layered liners that are relatively durable. I'd need a middle shelf liner and 2 half shelf liners. If you would be willing to do this order, how much would you charge? Thanks! <3
Title: Re: <:3 )~ The Rat Stash ~ New Fabrics Available!!!
Post by: Violet976 on December 04, 2009, 02:46:17 AM
amourpetite: Thanks for your interest. I actually do not actively make cage liners to sell, only for donations to rescues (and even then, the Ferret Nation shelves are all I've made to date). They were mediocre at best, so I'd highly recommend purchasing from one of the other sellers on here that sew them regularly. I probably couldn't beat their prices, & you'd know they would be made top notch!  :thumbsup2:



LOTR_Ratties: Woo hoo! I'm so glad you like them. I was really hoping you'd love the green christmas bunker as it really is such a great fabric! & I've still been good, your trade is wrapped & under my tree for Christmas!
Title: Re: <:3 )~ The Rat Stash ~ New Fabrics Available!!!
Post by: amourpetite on December 04, 2009, 02:56:10 AM
I appreciate the quick response and i'll be sure to keep an eye out on others selling them. I'm not finding very many people who actively sell liners though. If you know anybody, i'd appreciate the direction. I'm pretty new here.

Ok, I splurged on some new fabric for myself, but I don't mind sharing if anyone likes them as well.  :wink5: I only have a teeny yard of the rainbow, so unless someone beats me to it it will be gone pretty quick.  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:

-edit- all better? I think it was a photoshop glitch I had done awhile ago that keeps randomly biting me in the butt!  :BlueDumboSmileTongue: Thanks though, I might not have caught on for awhile!  :thumbsup2:

Thanks to everyone for being so patient. I know I haven't slipped past any deadlines yet but I can most definitely understand everyone getting anxious for their holiday treats! Believe me when I say I am sewing up a storm here to get all these out, & I'm still hoping to get everyones orders out by the deadlines promised. Gonna be tight, but I don't see any cause for concern just yet!  :BlueDumboSmile:

Hey Melissa Girl!! Well, I modified my FN and got my little girls moved in, so I gave them the playhouse!! And they really seem to love it! They like all the holes they can jump in and out of, hehe. They were so hyper last night after I put them in the FN for the first time, that I didn't get many decent pics, but I did get one cute one of Lucy in your playhouse, and I thought you might like to see it! :BlueDumboSmile:

Can't thank you again for the awesome Christmas trade!! Can hardly wait for you to open your goodies on Christmas day. :hyper: Oh, and I gave my now lone boy Gollum the penguin bunker for his cage, and he approves of your work as well. :wink5:

Score!!! I just popped on to update with another completed order & imagine my delight at not one, but two sets of Happy Rattums photos!!!

LOTR_Ratties: Lucy looks sooo teeny in her Playhouse, & such a pretty little thing. I can't imagine having one so little anymore!

Nightmelody: Ah... the Day of the Dead!!! Love that one. I had completely forgotten you had so many rattum pies. I love the masks on Pixel & Kali, & adore that last photo you posted as well. It looks like so much fun having a whole cage full of rattums. & love the liner, I tried to snag some striped fleece like that over thanksgiving...didn't happen.  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:



&, to my patient little Critterchic...  :poke: Your ENTIRE Spoiled Rotten/Creature Comfort/& then some is complete & will be mailing out tomorrow for you! I had to take two photos just to get them all in. Hope you & your rattums love them all!

I got that fleece from the Joann's site black friday sale(on sunday after the site was back up), but, if it makes you feel better, I only recieved 1/2 of my fleece order, due to out of stockness, including my favorite design, which I am going to try to find on the hancock's website instead.   :mumum: I wish they would honor all orders placed, even if it means we get the product late.

Nightmelody: Happened to me as well. They mailed me the wrong fleece by mistake & now are out of the one I really wanted. Oh well, still got some great stuff. They did cut one short, but cut all the others long, so I can let it slide. But I don't think I'll purchase online for anything except Black Friday anymore.  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:

LoveMyPets81: Right now I'm giving out 1/15 estimates for completion, but I'm hoping to gain some ground as I'm through the hardest part of the orders at this point. If that's too long, I'll totally understand. Otherwise just let me know what you were thinking of & I can see what's available!  :BlueDumboSmile:



LOTR_Ratties: Ooooh, Gollum's always such a cute little bugger! I'm happy he likes his new hammie, I always worry he looks like he'll freeze his toosh off during winter!!! One day I'd love to see a naked in person & pet one, I've never been lucky enough to have one around!



Juliebug: Your wait is finally over, thanks so much for being so patient. It'll be mailing out tomorrow for you, I can't wait for you & your rattums to see it, it really is one blindingly bright set!  :color:

I most definitely have enough of that fabric to make one more & will be doing just that if it sells. But funds are short & I have to put supporting the bubbins over having to make another one to let them demolish!  :yelcutelaugh: & my bubbins are more than used to playing the 'wait to see if it sells' game. That's how they get their nicest hammies!

Possible New Design Here...

Any feedback would be appreciated. Also... if you've seen this design before please let me know immediately so I know to leave this one be. Basically, its really just a simple hanging pouch with the sides left open as well. But again, if this is someone else's design please don't hesitate to bring that to my attention, or if you feel it is too close to anyones design please let me know as well!  :thumbsup2:

Post by: Hadassah_33 on January 01, 2010, 03:37:52 AM
Neat design!

You could also offer it with ribbons on both sides so it could be hung horizontally or vertically. The ratties could pile in and peek out of the top and the sides.  :)

Hmmm, I toyed with that idea but was afraid the rats would eat the ribbon when it was being used as a hanging wall pocket, so I left them off.
I had been envisioning this idea as well for quite some time, & I think this will fit the bill for what you were describing with the peek-a-boo ratties!:

(http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2795/4232626943_13d8366453.jpg)

I'm still tweaking with this one for the best compromise between hiding any sloppy seams or allowing some bad seams to show but getting rid of the slightly "puffier" result on the edges.... It's basically a regular type pocket but again, with the sides left open as well.

Again though... ideas/input or be sure to let me know if you've seen this done already!  :thumbsup2: (don't forget to scroll up everyone to see the other possible new design & let me know what you think!)  :BlueDumboSmile:

Re: The new design...

Violet... I need you to leave it just like it is. Why? Because I have about three rats who practically live in wall hammocks, but the design is never quite right on them. I couldn't figure out what it is, and you nailed the two design flaws right on the head! They end up being too tall and long. This one is more horizontal than vertical, and it looks deep enough to where they can still snuggle. Also, the issue of climbing in to it without knocking it down off of the wall. It would also be easier for my two boys who have issues getting in and out of hammocks to get in to with that little side entry way.

I really, really, really need some of those... I can already tell it's a design my crew will love. ;D It might replace their current favorite, which is the wedge cube (it lays on the ground, easy for them to get in to/out of... I have a couple of lazy gents who won't climb in to anything that's not laying on the ground). ::)

Post by: Violet976 on January 01, 2010, 12:27:34 PM
You guys rock, thanks so much for taking the time to leave feedback. These were both rough prototypes (& you can thank my dad for the wall pouch as it was really the result of him miscutting some fabric & me trying to figure out how to salvage it  :yelcutelaugh: ), so I'll be tweaking with the sizing/dimensions over the weekend to try and figure out what will make the best small/mediums & larges.

Schrute: It would be fantastic if you could tell me approximate dimensions (when the wall pocket is laid down flat) works best for your boys. I always misjudge my first dimensions & it would help to know how tall of a hammock normally works & how wide would work well & I can slightly modify the hammock to a size range you are currently used to. Laid flat, this first one is just about 11" tall by 12" wide & I'd like to make the most usable sizings possible!

EvilHobbitGirl: Isn't that fabric great? That's was actually part of a wonderful fabric donation that Petunia kindly mailed in to help with our Christmas for Rescues program, which is why the first prototypes are going to be mailed off to some great rescues on monday!!!

oh what a great idea!!

I love the new design possibility! I would definitely love to add it to my usual sets(with due price adjustment, of course), as often as fabric allows, once you've got it figured out. I think that would be right up Edward and Sebastian's alley in terms of snuggle spots.

Edited for sensibility, though it's still a bit strange! :)

Chiming in for support of the wall hammie. My girls made their own "easy out" on their wall hammock and it was a big hit. I also support the suggestion of more horizontal hammocks, as it seems to help the more wall-shy rats into exploring them. My one girl wouldn't go near them until I threw together a more tube-dimensioned wall hammock and now they're one of her favorites.

Also, a personal note, if that fabric is available please let me make a huge order. I'm dying, it's beautiful!

 :wave2: That new design looks awesome. I was wondering if the playhouse would fit in a martins okay? Like in the open areas I guess.... ???

LoveMyPets81: I'm not overly familiar with Martins, but I know at least a few members who bought Playhouses had them in Martins cages, I'm just not sure which model cage they had. The measurements to the Playhouse are on the websites Product Page though, & I can easily modify those measurements if you decide you need one a bit smaller in any direction. You can probably also see a couple playhouses in a Martins on the Spoiled Critters page. I know at least a few are on there. Let me know!

Nomi:  Sadly, that was one of the many wonderful fabrics Petunia kindly donated for our Christmas for Rescues donations. There's just a tiny bit left of that one & I'm opting to keep those fabrics just for use as donation hammies since that's what they were so generously mailed over for. You can check out Joanns website to see if they have something similar that you like, I do accept special request fabrics if my local store carries the fabric & I am able to get my hands on it at a not too outrageous price.  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:

LOTR_Ratties:  :BlueDumboSmileTongue: Nonsense. So far your Corner Hammocks are one of Verdells faves. Every time one makes it in the rotation, I know exactly where I'll find him when I come & do the rounds. Although, this past rotation I couldn't get him out of the peek-a-boo flat hammock. So, you can bet I'll be getting more of those corner cubbies down the road, as I'm way too nitpicky to try & tackle anything with triangles!  :yelcutelaugh:

Nightmelody: If you know you have a hammock or two that you would want to sacrifice for your existing Off with Her Head order to get one of the new hammock styles instead, let me know soon & I'll see if somehow it can be done.  :thumbsup2:

Thanks,
   Maybe we can start adding it to the usual set with the (March??) order in the deck of cards fabric? I can't think of anything I want to sacrifice in the off with her head, as much as I am eager to try that one out.....

Heh I scrolled up a tad and whatdyaknow theres a r695 with a playhouse in it. Did you make it normal size for Critterchic? If so then should be a-okay in mine then. How are you looking for orders now? I wanna playhouse but may want some other stuff....heh.... :wink5:

LoveMyPets81: Critterchic always gets standard size playhouses & they seem to fit nicely in her cage. At this point I'm giving out estimates close to the end of january, so if theres a certain fabric you know you want to try for let me know & I can set that aside for you if theres enough available.  :thumbsup2:

Thanks for all the input everyone! I will begin trying to work on specific sizings for the new designs this week, and may have a few available later today if I can squeeze some in. So, be on the lookout for some premades of the new designs shortly.

Cool thanks. Do you have enough of the Hooters fabric #161?
I also see you can do it in multiple fabrics...so if you have enough of 161 and some other one that kinda goes with it...thatd be cool...I cant decide what even sorta goes with it... :BlueDumboBigEyes:

LoveMyPets81: I have quite a bit of #161 Hooters left, so I'd guess I can get a solid playhouse & then a couple hammocks in that print. Just PM me if you know what you'd like, or if you have any other questions & I can check on fabrics for you as well!  :BlueDumboSmile:

Well, I was hoping to have a few new breezy wall pouches up right now, but who would believe it took me over an hour to make the first one...  :doh: talk about braindead!

Anyways, I'd like to get a few out in the "beta" stage to get feedback before I post them officially up for sale. I'm thinking of offering these sizes & don't have the pricing set in stone just yet:
Small (11"x12") - $10
Medium (13"x14") - $12
Large (15"x16") - $13

& here's the first medium available ($11 Shipped for someone willing to provide feedback!!!):

Ok, since no one snatched up the first premade of the breezy wall pouch, I'm sending all of the first new designs off to LilSpaz for her Christmas for Rescues package!!! I'll try to make some new premades as time allows. If anyone is interested in testing the any of the new designs, please PM me so I can attempt to make it in a pattern that you'd like!  :thumbsup2:

Here's LilSpaz's package off to some lucky rattum testers!

Post by: Violet976 on January 04, 2010, 07:11:38 PM
Rattix: Also, keep in mind that many hammocks with holes/entrances can easily be altered to accommodate older rats. So, whether you order from me or any other member, always feel free to ask if we can move an entrance down lower on any hammocks you're interested in, as its usually no extra trouble to do so.  :thumbsup2:

Ok everyone, the newest designs are now available, but please keep in mind that these are still in the testing stages, so feedback is greatly appreciated & I am more than willing to work with special sizing requests to find out what works best overall!
Also, I'm working closely with Mainely Rat Rescue on possibly offering a few of their designs with a portion of the proceeds forwarded to their rescue, so you may see a few more designs offered shortly if I can learn to sew their designs up to any acceptable standards!  :yelcutelaugh:
I'm also going to run our Christmas for Rescue program through the end of January, so if anyone wants to donate some hammocks to their favorite rescue, there is still a bit more time to do so!  :thumbsup2:

Violet, please feel free to use any of the fabric I sent in any way you choose- for your own rats, for things for sale, for donations, it's up to you. Even when your selling hammocks, you are giving a percentage to a rescue, so it's all going to a worth cause. (and what better worthy cause than your own bubs, if you like any of those fabrics for them, go ahead and use it!!)


I can't wait til things get settled down here so I can sew again!!

Petunia: I'm going to leave them off of the available fabrics since they are smaller pieces (to avoid large order requests in them), but I'll probably post some of them as available premades when we get some extras whipped up. Usually I list premades for about a week & then send any that don't sell off to the rescues anyway. I really wanted to post the Light Blue Cats Burrow hammock from the last picture I posted as a premade as it turned out sooo cute, but I had a rescue donation lined up.  :BlueDumboSmileTongue: It's a shame the pic didnt turn out better, as that was a fantastically cute donation package! :thumbsup2: Thanks so much for mailing these in, every bit really is a huge help!

Critterchic: I wasn't thinking about it, but I could definitely nab some. The only downfall at this point is that my current wait time is already at Feb. 15th or thereabouts, so you probably wouldn't get them in time. I keep trying to get through these quicker to ease that wait time up, but so far I'm just not gaining ground here...  :icon_scratch:

OK, I'd love everyones input on this one as this will affect you guys as much as me, so please chime in or personally PM me with what works best for you...

Shipping increases are beginning to catch up with me. I'm currently looking into having FedEx as either my main shipping option or a backup shipping option, but am in the beginning stages so I don't know how it's going to work yet. I also have to get my hands on a working printer before I can even consider the switch as driving there is just too far to be worth it. My two questions for you guys are:

1. Do you have any preference between me using FedEx, Post Office, or a combination of both & why? (right now utilizing both still seems best to me as certain weights are still cheaper with certain carriers, and the flat rate box still beats out some fedex weights)

2. Would you prefer an overall price increase across the board & to still keep the S&H included option we currently offer, or would you rather have a standard price for all products & packages & instead now charge an individual S&H fee for each purchase?

All input greatly appreciated. Feel free to PM me as well if you'd like!  :thumbsup2:

...Lots of changes going on this month...
The Rat Stash is teaming up with Mainely Rat Rescue on an arrangement to offer their original design Honeycomb Hammock & Bunkbed Hammock with a portion of each one purchased going directly back to their rescue. Pricing details are still being worked out as I figure out which direction our shipping charges are going to go (see above post), but you should see both products offered on our website within a few weeks. Ty's Rat Shack is also offering these for MRR so you can still help the rescue by buying them there, or purchase them directly from Mainely Rat Rescue's store to get the biggest percentage of proceeds benefiting their wonderful rescue!  :thumbsup2:

Personally I have issues with Fedex. They can never seem to find my house and packages often go missing. UPS and USPS never seem to have a problem. Maybe its just me who has a Fedex issue though lol. I think raising the prices a tad to keep up with USPS sounds okay or something like that. How much is flat rate up to now anyways?
Title: Re: <:3 )~ The Rat Stash ~ New Fabrics Available!!!
Post by: Violet976 on January 12, 2010, 08:08:39 PM
Thanks to the many of you who emailed to provide feedback on our shipping changes. The majority seemed more comfortable with just an overall price increase rather than switching to individual shipping quotes, so that has now been put into effect. The new prices are up on the website & will be updated on the forum as soon as I get a mod to switch the coding for me (might be a few days as my email is acting up & not sending the message to many of them). I am still working to offer both FedEx as well as USPS, but if implemented will leave it up to the customer if they do not want their items shipped via FedEx.

The Rat Stash has also teamed up with Mainely Rat Rescue & is now offering 2 of M.R.R.'s signature designs. 20% of the purchase price of any Honeycomb or Bunkbed Hammock will go directly to M.R.R. Please note the price is higher on our website as S&H is already factored in & included in the price.
Ty's Rat Shack is also selling these to benefit M.R.R., or purchase them directly from M.R.R.'s Bedding Store for the greatest benefit to the rescue!

You are more than welcome to it, if you'd like. You can tell me where improvement can be made.  :thumbsup2: I tend to only give premades about 5 days to sell anyway before I send them off to rescues or put them in our monthly donation package, as I tend to think if they're going to get snatched up it's usually pretty quick to happen.

This is awesome news, Violet! I'm excited to see that MRR is giving you & Tysetsu, two AWESOME hammock makers, the permission to sell my two favorite MRR designs! And how great that I can still benefit MRR with the purchase!

I also wanted to tell you that I got TONS of compliments on your hammocks this weekend. We had a big rat transport day on Friday, and I had people running in and out of my house with rats, guinea pigs & food all day! Everyone LOVED the playhouse, especially, (still they original one - it's the only hammock type my rats don't chew!) and commented on how creative the design is and how well it was made. Your other hammocks were also a hit, but the playhouse was the flashiest!

Petunia: Wow that seemed quick, or I'm just losing track of time! Your pics make me miss my old standard Pew boys. Lets just hope your rats don't think that hammock is too sweet.  :poke:



BellaBooks: I'm so glad to know the Playhouse has survived all this time, I always assume that despite my best efforts to make them endure & outlast, the rattums will probably have their way with them in just a few days. Its nice to know that's not the case, must be all the extra holes!  :yelcutelaugh:
As for the newly added designs, its actually been quite interesting working to get them down just right. Even so though, I am still going to highly encourage everyone to consider purchasing them directly from Mainely Rat Rescue first if you can, as that will always get the highest percentage of money going directly back to their rescue!  :thumbsup2:


Nightmelody: My ever so patient lady... Here is set #2 of your 3 sets to be mailed out monday for you. I'll have the Hot Air Balloon CC sewn up and ready to go tomorrow as well! Definitely expect a "pop" when you open this package...I can't see any way around it!  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:

Hadassah_33: So glad you like it, I absolutely adore that tie dye fleece! & thanks so much for nabbing up some fleece scraps, I honestly hate throwing any away so I'll stuff as much as I can whenever someone wants a box.  :thumbsup2:



& Small Angels Rescue... I have not forgotten about your hammock bundle. This month has just been quite hectic. I expect to have that finished up tomorrow or monday at the latest, & will post a picture of your hammock bundle here as well! Keep up the great work! Warm snugglies will be on their way in a jiffy!  :thumbsup2:

Thanks so much hun, this package was absolutely perfect!

Goodness, those faces are just to die for, your rats have some of the neatest markings on them. & is Aria a newcomer? I don't recall hearing about that one as of yet...

Aria and her brother Nico are the two hairless/double rex(?) that I rescued in November(ish) - they were 12 wks old living in a 12x12x12 hamster cage together. I picked them up at noon and they were surgerized that evening. Amazingly enough, she had no signs of being pregnant.
in other good news, Kali is being adopted the first week of Feb, as soon as I can get her spayed, to be a friend to a lone girl that a classmate has. Unfortunately, I will have her spot filled even before she's gone, I have a couple of very young(4wks?) girls that I am supposed to go look at this afternoon. to evaluate and see if I can make room somewhere... :(

Been busy this week so I haven't been on much. Just wanted to run through the end of month for everyone. A final total of $35 was raised for Any Rat Rescue, thanks so much to everyone who purchased for making that possible. February's Rescue of the Month is Houston Rat Rescue, for their continued effort to acquire as many animals as possible from the Arlington Animal Seizure. Last I heard they were still awaiting the final decision of the appeal, but they are indeed on standby & will need as much help as possible if & when the animals are released to local rescues. Please consider donating to Houston Rat Rescue in any way you can to help them prepare for this. You can click their logo below for more information.

Update:
Just wanted to drop a quick note to let everyone know I am woefully behind on emails, so if you've sent me an email recently I probably do have it, but have just not been able to get to it yet. Of course, you can always email me again if you want to make sure I received the correspondence, but I will try to get back to everyone later tonight.

This weekend I was able to round up some cages/supplies & am hoping to get most of them off to rescues that took in animals from the animal seizure in Texas. A Martins Chinchilla Skyscraper, another plastic guinea pig cage (I personally would use if for lots of hamsters/gerbils), possibly 2 flying saucers (one had some rust, we're working to save it if we can), and some other misc. supplies were kindly donated, & are getting a good scrubdown today to evaluate the condition of each. While I have plenty of time to get these in tip top shape, I am very low on funds to cover all the shipping for these items.

So... if anyone was looking to help out the animals/rescues involved in the seizure, I would truly appreciate help covering the shipping fees. Of course, even orders of premades or custom hammocks would help me out in that regard, & you could get hammocks out of the deal w/ 10% still being donated to our Rescue of the Month, Houston Rat Rescue. I will also be cramming out as many premades as possible to try & help fund these shipments.

So far, I'm hoping to get the Martins Skyscraper to Houston Rat Rescue, the plastic guinea pig cage to Texas Rustlers Guinea Pig Rescue, the flying saucers to Wee Companions, & the misc. supplies divided between the three. Anyone kindly looking to help out would be told the final shipping quote once I get these supplies cleaned up & boxed.

Thanks so much for reading, & as always, please consider donating directly to those rescues as well. They are all always in need of monetary donations, supplies, kind word of mouth & even time volunteering if you happen to be in the area.  :thumbsup2:

Ok everyone, here is the first batch of premades, all Mainely Rat Rescue Bunkbeds! Now is a great time to snatch these up, as on top of the 20% that goes directly to M.R.R., the money raised from these will help cover shipping costs to get some locally donated supplies off to a few needy rescues.  :puppy_dog_eyes: Not to put any pressure on you...   :poke:

& there are still quite a few other premades available  HERE. (http://site.com)

Small M.R.R. Bunkbed (10"x10") in Celestial & Purple Paisley - $13

& don't forget about those PREMADES (http://freewebs.com/theratstash/premades.htm) everyone. They wont be up for long, as I have a few rescue donations lined up that will be getting some in the next few days. All premade sales are helping to cover shipping for 2 Flying Saucers for Wee Companions Rescue (http://weecompanions.com/), a guinea pig cage for Texas Rustlers Guinea Pig Rescue (http://www.theguineapigrescue.com/), & possibly a Martins Chinchilla Skyscraper for Houston Rat Rescue (http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/TX1028.html) if I can clean it up well enough. There are also some small animal supplies that will be shipped out as well. All shipping funds are coming out of pocket, so any purchase will help recoup those costs, as well as the normal 10% donated each month to our Rescue of the Month, & 20% donated to Mainely Rat Rescue (http://www.mainelyratrescue.org/rattieblog2/) for any Bunkbed or Honeycomb hammocks purchased.  :thumbsup2:

Thanks so much for thinking to help! Actually, any orders or sale of any premades really is help enough, & that way feels good all around cuz your rats get some extra hammocks out of the deal! I'm working on your Deck of Cards set as we speak, but I'm also cramming out tons of premades now that my machine is running flawlessly & we're on good terms, so expect to have lots of premades to pick from shortly!!!  :poke:



The Cats Bunkbed has sold! This is the first sale for Mainely Rat Rescue, so there is now a running total of money raised for M.R.R. on our website! Still a couple more Bunkbeds & a Honeycomb available, still $1 off all premades, & more premades will be on the way shortly!  :thumbsup2:

Hi everyone. Sorry for the delays, I've been fighting off a nasty migraine/tension headache & some sort of stomach bug for the past week & am finally getting back into orders again. I expect all remaining orders to make their deadlines, & only have a few more to go before I'll be back to cranking out premades again.  :thumbsup2:

Nightmelody: A huge thanks to you for your patience this time around. Here is your finished Deck of Cards Spoiled Rotten Package... it's been giving me a hankering for some Jameson & a night on the town.  I also threw in the pouch pocket since there was enough left to do so & for bearing with me this week.  :yelcutelaugh::BlueDumboSmileTongue:

(http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4002/4383695553_2a6dd2dfee.jpg)



Another custom order came in today for an MRR Honeycomb! Thanks so much Petunia, $4 of your purchase is now reflected on our website's running total for Mainely Rat Rescue!



& one single premade joins the rest of the remaining bunch today:

Large MRR Bunkbed in Checkered Hearts & Stripes w/ tie dye purple fleece- $15 Shipped

Hello! I received my hammocks today & took them upstairs while the younger group of rats were out...I set the Panda wall hammock on the floor & everyone had to check it out!
(http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g240/jude1918/newhammock.jpg)
That's Panda on it, Wasabi had to stuff himself right in it & his brother Nikko is checking it out on the side. The bit of black in the bottom left corner is Kuro (actually he was on the hammock too but moved too quick when I snapped the pic). I finally got it from them to hang but then Bekko sat on it & decided he might like to see what the hook was all about first...
(http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g240/jude1918/bekkopandahammock.jpg)

I gave the hearts hammock to the older boys in the FN. As soon as I hung it, Ikuya had to check it out!
(http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g240/jude1918/Ikuyaheartham.jpg)
Then his brother Mitsu wanted in...
(http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g240/jude1918/mitsuheartham.jpg)

I LOVE both of them, by the way!! Thank you so much!!

Just wanted to let you know I received my cat bunk bed yesterday and it's gorgeous!  I'll be putting it in their cage when I clean tonight and hopefully can grab some pictures.  They love bunk beds, so they'll probably be in it right away.   ;D

Thank you so much!

Sorry for the delayed post, my internet has been down most of the day & I finally got it back! A few of you probably received emails from my mother on my behalf as she was forwarding correspondence to me over the phone. Your orders have been received & I will be contacting anyone who emailed by tomorrow evening.  :thumbsup2:

justice500: Thanks so much for sharing those photos, I always enjoy seeing adorable happy rattum photos. Your rats names are almost as cute as your rats themselves!  :heart: Can't wait to add those to my happy customer page!

LetMeEvolve: So happy you got them safe & sound. Hope your rats like it as much as you do.  :BlueDumboSmile:

Kirsten: I meant to post this earlier today but the internet went out. Here is your completed order, it will be in the mail tomorrow morning for you! Absolutely love the fabrics picks on this order & can't wait to see some rattums in these!

Nightmelody: Can't wait, that was definitely one original set. How fun would it be if you could get a little gambling theme going in the cage... a tiny poker table, slot machines, a casino shaped rat cube...    :cheeky:

flyingteapot:
Ha, even with the "Kirsten" notation it still took me a minute to figure out who you were... shows how lacking my brain is this week.  :doh: I absolutely loved your set, anything bright & colorful I always want to keep for myself.  :yelcutelaugh:

that would have been incredibly cute, but I have visions of these guys ripping the dice to shreds and am afraid of them eating the fiberfill....  :doh:

But the result was still pretty freakin cute!
also, they LOVE the rattified wall pocket. Pixel only comes out when I open the door it's hanging on....  ;D
pics are up in the CN thread, last page.

Nightmelody: Eck, I totally feel you on the fiberfill. One of my hammocks has some sort of filling in it & boy, what a mess they made of that... Saw the new cage setup though! So glad to see your bubs are enjoying the rattified wall pouch! & congrats on starting up your own rescue!!!  :thumbsup2:



Just wanted to update everyone. I'm still fighting off the stomach bug & bad back from last week, but orders are still being crammed out. To top it off, in my sick haze I forgot that February does not have 30 days,  :doh:, so I just lost two days to get orders done. So, while I am trying my hardest to get my 30th deadlines done  :doh:, and my 1st orders done on time after that, please bear with me if I run a day or so behind schedule. & feel free to email me if you want to check on the status of your order. Thanks so much everyone, I never thought this bug would last over a week & a half.

Here is one lonely little premade. Probably wont have any more available for another week or so until after I catch up on orders. This may become a new design if it seems to be popular enough:

Corner Tunnel (30" w/ 8" opening) in #164 Jungle Fun

Ok everyone, its that time of the month again... thanks to everyone who purchased, we were able to raise $33 for Houston Rat Rescue!!!  :thumbsup2:



& March's rescue of the month, Chelle's Critter Haven, had a story that hit me on quite a personal level. While the worst of the story is now over & done with, I felt it extremely important for all pet owners to read. Some of you who know me well know that I lost my baby boy Tajo due to a simple misjudgment of a toy <3. After seeing how easily a mistake like that can happen, I feel very strongly about passing along any information pertaining to possible hazards our little ones might have around them. Please take a moment to read Clods story, & please investigate your pets play areas & housing for any & all potential dangers.

I can tell you that I am completely paranoid when it comes to safety in my rats cage. I'm constantly checking their hammocks to make sure they can't get injured on any of the chewed up bits.
I had one rat get cought on a frayed hammock, and thank got I was there the moment it happened because he was actually dangling upside down from it. He was ok though, no injuries.

I haven't had a chance to read Clod's story yet.  But I too understand how easily accidents can happen.  We had one with the CN162's top doors and my 10 yo who was trying to close them and didn't notice a rat was up there till it was too late.


On a better note, Jenn your going to Love, Love, Love that playhouse!  I can't wait to see your cage with all those matching sets in it :)

I adore it that the hammocks get to me so fast. I just got my order in the mail and melted. omg they are adorable! my mother was over visiting and said how jealous she was. she wishes she could get stuff like that for her cats lol.

I think Sadu is especially going to adore the mushroom pocket bunker. he lives in a play pen (hind end degeneration) and it's lacking because I can't really hang hammocks well. I'm going to make chains out of the hangers so he can go back to the ratty high life of hammock sleeping :D my old man is going to be the happiest rat ever!

I'm so glad to hear you got the hammocks so quick, I loved making that order & seeing all those bright, cheery colors! Hope your big manrat loves them as well.

I <3 bright colors. I've gone from pastels in most of my cages to bright as can be.

omg. those would be perfect. the mushroom hammock is going to hang just fine with the curtain hooks, but his smaller hammocks would benefit from those. I know where I am going this weekend XD to target! woooo.

(I could also make an awesome free range hammock set up with those!)

Oh gosh, those are so bright and wonderful! ;D I can't wait for them to get here. They're the last order I put out for these awesome fabrics and when they arrive, I'll have the "full set" that will totally never fit in the cage at the same time. But that's okay, thank you mix-n-match! And the retro flowers will totally go with some of my other pink if I want it to.

You do gorgeous work and I can't wait to see it in person! I know that cameras barely do the vibrancy of these fabrics justice.

Luckily, you are quite familiar with those fabrics so you know what you've got coming.  :thumbsup2: Can't wait to see your "full set" in action.  :BlueDumboSmile:



Petunia: Got your order ready & set to ship tomorrow for you. Definitely a bright one, & I'll be sad to see the Critters Half Tunnel pack up. Can't wait to see your rattums in them though.  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:

anyway they've never had one of those before, i'm anxious to find out who uses it- i suspect my girl Tilly is gonna be the first one in it. i'll let you know!!

Petunia: So glad you like it. I really wanted to do the pink & green with that honeycomb! & the tunnel is probably a bit bigger than a half tunnel, but not by much. Got your order sitting on standby, just let me know what else you would like & I'll start making a pile for ya!  :poke:  :yelcutelaugh:

Update:

I will be petsitting from 3/12-3/21, & while I will be taking my machine & all orders with me (as well as some premades to whip up), I will not have full access to all of my fabrics. So... anyone thinking of putting in an order, please try to get it in by the 8th so I have time to check fabric availability & get it ready to take with me. I will still be taking orders during that timeframe, but do expect a slight delay. 
If you think you might have an order in mind, feel free to let me know & I'll be happy to take those fabrics with me as well.  :BlueDumboSmile:

Awesome-looking playhouse up there. ;D

My order came today! Yaaaaay! I got a text at work with a video from my dad, holding up a stuffed envelope and then slowly zooming in on it so that the text was visible as he talked.

Dad: "Hmm, I wonder what this could be. A package came in the mail. From - oh look - the Rat Stash. No clue who this could belong to. And there's a picture of a rat on the front. Huh. I'm stumped. I guess we'll see when you get home."

For a guy who doesn't like them, he's still a good sport about it all. :BlueDumboSmileTongue:

They look awesometastically amazing and I can't wait to try them out in the cage with the other excellence from Andie and Chelsey and Heidi and... yeah. :thumbsup: Next cleaning will be another rotation of that colorful set! Right now we're back to frosty winter snowmen and Santa penguins.

OK, last chance for those looking to get their orders in before I begin petsitting. All orders received before Wed. March 10th are good to go, any orders placed between March 10th-21st will have some delays as I will not have easy access to my fabric supply. & for everyone who has already placed an order, you're good to go. I have all current orders fully cut & ready to take with me.  :thumbsup2:

& just 3 more days to get your orders in to avoid any delays. I will be gone from the 12th through the 21st, and will be packing everything up to go this Wednesday. Any orders received after that time will have to wait until I make a run back home to pick up any needed supplies or fabric requests.  :thumbsup2:

Petunia: Don't I wish... I think I would get myself into lots of trouble if I had these chocolates available on a regular basis.  :heart:



Ok everyone, I've got all placed orders cut & ready to go, & I cannot tell you how tuckered out I am. Seriously, I've never seen such a monster pile of ready to sew hammocks in my life (I guess now I know how Chelsey must feel!  :yelcutelaugh:)

For those of you wanting to jump on the bandwagon & avoid any delays while I petsit, tomorrow (Wednesday) is the last day to ensure that I'll be taking your order with me. Between March 11th-March 21st, orders will still be accepted but please expect some delays in checking fabric availability.  :thumbsup2:


 :shocked2: (I bet some of you are playing I Spy with this one)
-ok, I lied...the front 3 hammocks are already sewn...  :BlueDumboSmile:-

LoL... hope I didn't wreck any surprises. I'm actually really excited to see how all the fleece lining choices look with all the upcoming hammocks. The colors in each of these orders are really fun this time around. & Kats Arctic fabric had some amazing hints of color that I've been dying to play around with.

...One more order to cut out for Kat & I'll be done with the orders I'm taking. Last chance to get yours in the pile folks...  :poke:

Oh my goodness, but the rats love their playhouse so much! I only put it in this afternoon and they've decided that it's one of the coolest places to hang out ever. Mostly the bottom hammock part, but I've seen them run through the whole thing.

Whole cage this week. Note the enjoyment in process!
(http://hphotos-snc3.fbcdn.net/hs459.snc3/26256_533780622624_43302396_31724452_7711605_n.jpg)

After a cage cleaning, I went to see how they were liking the new playhouse. Ondo cozied right up! Normally I don't like taking shots through the bars, but I knew his little curl would be disturbed as soon as I opened the door. Jeremy says hi from the sidelines.
(http://photos-c.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc3/hs459.snc3/26256_533780582704_43302396_31724444_455447_n.jpg)

Both boys! As predicted, Ondo uncurled as soon as the door was open. I disturbed him. :heart:

Both girls checking me out from the hammock beneath the double cube of the playhouse, with Jeremy off to the side.

Jeremy finally gets his turn inside!

Deblee: Sounds good, I should have enough of both of those fabrics for your order. Go ahead & send me a PM with how you'd like to pay or your paypal address & I'll get a finalized order to you in a few days when I get back to a computer.



Evilhobbitgirl: Just saw your order & I'll need a few days to check on fabric availability. I'm pretty sure that I have enough of each of your first choices to accommodate your order.  :thumbsup2: I'd estimate your order to be complete around April 5th.



TheJenn: Thanks so much for sharing, that entire set looks fantastic & your rats are quite the spoiled bunch. I can't wait to put some of those pics on the website when I get back from petsitting!!!


Sorry if I seem rushed, this is the first moment I've had to check the computer since friday. I might not be back on again for a few more days, so no worries if you don't get a response right away  :BlueDumboSmile:

(http://i623.photobucket.com/albums/tt318/catznratz/ahhhhhh.jpg)

I've seen girls in every level, top, middle and bottom, but haven't been able to get a photo of that yet. It looks so funny to see their little faces peeking out from all different sides and levels.

Ah another hammock style to add to the list of things my girls need to keep em happy!

no chewing of the honeycomb at all!! it's got plenty of 'air holes' already  :BlueDumboSmile:

i am trying to get better photos but i think it may not be possible with the camera i have (??) it's only 1.3 mega pixels  and most new cameras have at least 10, or so i've heard
i have no idea, truthfully, if meg pixels determines the quality of a photo, but no matter what i do, i can't get nice clear close up shots like other folks are getting.
i so want to get a really really good photo for your website (you know how i like to show off my girls lol)
i may have to sell a few things and get a new camera.........yes, so i can take photos of my rats lol
(there was just a thread about this recently lol- lots of ppl get better cameras specifically to take photos of their rats)

an update on their pocket bunkers, they only chewed the rainbow one- i think they musta watched the skittles commercial and decided to "taste the rainbow"  :yelcutelaugh:

soooo.. even though it would be way past easter by that point, if you are able to get more of that easter egg fabric when it goes on clearance, I would totally put it in rotation for a full set out of it. I absolutely adore it.

or, if not, I would totally snatch up a bunker and/or a bunkbed premade for my carriers....

I'm finally back from petsitting & ready to play catchup on the things I fell behind on while away. Expect to see the updated amount raised for our rescue of the month tomorrow for the orders received while I was away, as well as the beginning of some Easter premades. I also stocked up on fleece, & nabbed up a few fleece prints for two customers who had requested some fleece/fleece hammocks & playhouses. I should be attempting to sew those up shortly (if my machine can conquer a solid fleece playhouse) & will be giving first dibs in the order they were requested. Other than that, I'm happy to be back & stay on the lookout for more order pics & premades shortly.  :BlueDumboSmile:



Nightmelody: Since I was working on Easter premades all weekend, I just threw your pocket bunker & bunkbed in the pile to be sewn as well... sooo... those two are complete & I'll post a photo for you tomorrow. Absolutely adorably cute... almost as cute as the matching playhouse that's also available...  :poke:  :yelcutelaugh:

LoveMyPets81: So glad you like them, I thought it was a wonderful earthy set & I adore the frogs on that one! Can't wait to see it in action & do let me know how the newest additions are doing!



Ok guys, a couple of things came up after I got back home & I didn't find the time to make any more Easter premades. So, since I have orders to keep working on & haven't heard any requests for Easter hammocks, I'm just going to leave it at the available Easter Egg Playhouse & keep working on existing orders. If anyone has any last minute Easter requests, drop a note my way & I'll let you know if I can get it whipped up & shipped out on time. & for everyone with a paid order in, we're still good to go on completion estimates & I expect no delays at this point.  :BlueDumboSmile: Thanks so much guys, the next batch of orders are going to be a fantastic looking bunch!!!  :color:

Also, another $14 was raised for Mainely Rat Rescue for purchases of their signature Bunkbeds & Honeycombs!!! :icon_cheers:

There will be a slight delay on announcing April's Rescue of the Month as I have something special up my sleeve I'm trying to arrange. I should have the rescue listed on the website within a few days though.



Wendy: Thanks so much for your purchase. This one came out absolutely stunning, & will be in the mail tomorrow for you along with your Easter Egg Playhouse!

I will definitely post pics asap of the planets when I get it put in. The one with the lightning bolt blaze is Pixel, a kid I took in from a byb  who realized she was overwhelmed and had too many, and who also  happened to be a vet.   :-\  and yes, Jasper's fighting URI crud. I am actually fairly impressed that he made it this far without one (he's 1  1/2 the end of april) since he was a weak moment at petco(i know, bad me, but I only did it once!) but he's not bouncing back from this as well as I would like. may have to switch to zith and doxy - he's on baytril and  doxy now, and honestly i've never tried zith, so I don't know where i would be able to get it, but i'm gonna look. really hoping he'll improve a bit more by the end of this week.

Happy Easter Everyone!!! 
(http://planetsmilies.net/easter-smiley-17729.gif) 



& it looks like the Easter Bunny had a few tricks up its sleeve this year...

First, our cubes are now available with 4 entry/exit holes, making them more of a funhouse cube than the traditional sleeping cube. I may try a bungalow as well with this design if requested, but do not know yet if that will work as well support-wise. Nothing insanely new there, but a fun little addition, nonetheless!  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:

& secondly, a possible new addition may be on its way. I whipped this "thingamajig" up last night for Verdell & Minx's Easter treats, and was really happy with the result. It's basically a double decker with two additional flats coming out the top of the tunnel. As with any first attempt, one minor goof was made, being that the flats should have been reversed with the fleece on top & the print on the underside, but luckily that's just aesthetics. I'll post better photos once it's in the cage, & decide if it will be offered/pricing once I see what the overall opinion of the hammock is.

I'm happy to announce that after numerous requests, I am indeed able to offer fleece/fleece Playhouses!!! They will be offered for $35 since they are more tedious to make & the fleece costs more, but they are definitely a fantastically snuggly ratty retreat!

I have 2 people lined up for this one, since they both requested fleece on fleece playhouses, but if they don't want it I'll put it up for sale:
Fleece/Fleece Owls Playhouse w/ light tan lining:
(http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4049/4494146229_9d581bd3c4.jpg)

& here are the available fleece patterns I have for anyone interested. I can probably do most any design fleece on fleece, but would prefer to offer them up as requested premades before I actively accept orders/payments for them, just in case my machine can't tackle a certain hammock design with double fleece...

Some patterns are only good for larger hammocks, as fleece prints tend to be quite big to begin with...

Chelsey: Your wait is over!  :poke: & what fun this has been. I had a blast with your fabric choices & hopefully you'll enjoy them as well. Made for a challenging photo though... I wanted you to see all the fantastic fabrics you picked, but the hammocks should be hanging wider. & hopefully you'll like the surprise hammock. I've been dying to use that fabric for some time & it certainly looked "Chelsey Bright".  :yelcutelaugh:

I put an announcement on the website but for anyone who missed it... I'll be petsitting again from April 23-May 2, so please get any orders in before April 18th to avoid delays. I will still be accepting/sewing orders during that time, but there will be delays in checking fabric availability. Thanks guys!  :thumbsup2:

and I think I'd like it the way it is, with the print on top, looks nice and with the warmer weather coming, my girls will be looking for cotton fabric to lounge on when they get hot.
Will be looking for updates on this for sure!!!

For those who showed interest in the new design possibility, please take a moment to help me out. PM or email me with the ideal size measurements you would like to see, as well as the type of cage you own so I can begin figuring out standard sizing for it. I mainly need help with your ideal length (including the flats) & width of the tunnel top. Here's a pic again for anyone who would like to help.  :thumbsup2:

EvilHobbitGirl: Thanks so much for sharing those. They really brightened up my morning.



I am placing a hold on all further orders at this point. Verdell took a sudden turn for the worse last night with his respiratory battle (fine one second, couldn't breath or barely move the next), & is currently at the vets office getting Dex, oxygen & possibly xrays, along with a new antibiotic regime. I stayed up all night feeling as if I was going to lose him, but my baby took some water & rest & trooped through for me. Since I don't know what condition he is in, I want make sure I get as much time with him as possible right now & don't want to promise any order dates I might not be able to fulfill. Current orders might be delayed by hopefully one week at most, but if anyone does not want to wait I will gladly refund the money back to you. My sincere apologies for the delay, I just don't know what condition he is in & I want to make sure I have time to really be there for him.

Please everyone, think good thoughts for him pulling through this. I know eventually respiratory problems usually win in the end, but I am nowhere near ready to let this sweet man go so young...

Post by: Violet976 on April 12, 2010, 10:58:43 PM
Thanks for the well wishes everyone. I'm happy to state that, while not in the best physical state, Verdell is still hanging in there & resting in the other room, & at least now has some new meds to try. Minx kept him company all day at the vet, but I'm sure they are happy to be home. PS: Thanks so much to Chelsey, as the bubbins had wonderful hammies to keep them cozy at the vet. The full update on Verdell's visit is in this thread:

http://www.goosemoose.com/component/option,com_smf/Itemid,118/forum,rat/topic,4068711.0 (http://www.goosemoose.com/component/option,com_smf/Itemid,118/forum,rat/topic,4068711.0)

So, until I'm in the clear with Verdell & know I can catch up on all existing orders, I plan to leave the hold on new orders. As soon as Verdell is looking a bit better & I've squeezed in every ounce of snuggle time he'll allow me, I plan to squeeze those existing orders out (so long as no turn for the worse, I'll probably be sewing again in the next day or two, as Verdell is simply not an all day snuggler...). I can sew in my room next to the cage & keep an eye on him, so I really expect to not fall more than a week behind on current order estimates. Again though, any concerns or if you simply don't want to wait, please contact me & I'll let you know either how quickly I can sew them up or issue you a refund if you like. Thanks so much & I do hope everyone understands. If you don't see me on for a couple of days, please be patient as I'm probably just soaking up Verdell time.  :heart:

Thanks Weaver. Verdell finally came out of his travel cage on his own late last night, the first time I've seen him really move since we got back from the vet. I'm trying not to be overly optimistic, since he still sounds just as bad & is winded so easily, but anything is better than watching him lay in that travel cage barely moving. He's been great at eating all his meds down, is absolutely loving the soggy mushed lab blocks with Boost, & got some cantaloupe down as well. The water concerns me some, as I have only seen or heard him drink once, but I'm hoping the watered down lab blocks & cantaloupe is helping, along with eating small amounts of water off my finger. I also moved him into the top level of the FN today, blocked off by two shelves so there could be hammocks for him, so he can finally stretch his legs a little more.

Since there is not much more I can do for him, and because I think I might be overly pestering him with rubs & love, I will probably be back to slowly sewing up some of my current orders today or tomorrow. I need to keep busy to keep my mind from going crazy, he probably needs a mommy-pestering break, & I can still keep an eye on him from across the room.

Thanks again to everyone for the understanding & even more so, the support, well wishes & advice. Hopefully my little man still has a bit of good time left for him.  :heart:

I haven't heard from her, but we were previously discussing the liklihood of CHF, and she was going to try to get enalapril from her vet to add to his regimen, but she indicated that he was struggling pretty hard.  :-\

Melissa I'm SO sorry honey that you're going through this. Cry on our shoulders here all you need to if he's having a tough time, because we understand how hard it is. You are such a sweetheart, I am sure little Verdell is getting the best love and care he could possibly receive. :heart:

I am so sorry everyone. I know I'm falling behind on orders, shipments, & correspondence, My apologies to everyone affected by this, & I will still give refunds to anyone who did not anticipate nor want these delays.

As Kat stated, I said goodbye to my sweet, baby man Verdell on thursday. I don't honestly know what to think right now, I just can't imagine that Sunday morning everything seemed fine & I had no idea I was about to lose my loving man. Minxie is devastated, & I am working on getting her a rescue friend. I'm so sorry everyone, everything feels like such a mess right now & I just don't want to admit that my boy is gone. I plan to start sewing up the orders I am behind on in the next few days, but will completely understand if anyone wants their money back at this point. Thank you everyone for your well wishes, they are very much appreciated. I wish that I could bring you better news about my sweet little man. Wherever he is now, I know at least he is out of his discomfort. I just can't imagine that there wasn't more time to be had.

I am so so sorry :( *hug* having them pts is just insanely difficult.

it's been almost a month and I am still having trouble coping with my choice to have my little man Teddy pts. for possibly similar issues (the vet found a lot of fluid around his heart).

I am so so sorry you had to go through that too :(



I don't mind a wait on my order. :)

Post by: Violet976 on April 19, 2010, 02:22:39 AM
Thanks so much guys. I'm sure wherever my boy is now he appreciates the well wishes. I do believe he had a happy life, & he seemed ready to go, I just wish as we all do that there had been more time & that I had set aside even more time than I did for him while I had it. I know we all probably feel that way, I just really thought we had more time together.

Minxie is hanging in there, I've had to take her out to force cuddles upon her, but she is handling them gracefully considering she never trusted me all that much. I finally pulled through the tasks of cleaning the cage out, stopping frequently to try & smell the last traces of my wonderful baby boy. I keep smelling the laundry as I fold it, thinking I can catch a whiff of him here & there. & I managed to find a clump of Verdell hair in the washing machine just now... I'm sure it probably seems crazy to cling to such things... These past few days have just been hard... it feels like I am slowly erasing him from these walls. I know that these things are not him anymore, it's just hard to convince myself to let go of these last bits of him.

& sadly, I realize that life goes on whether we like it or not. Minxie reminds me everyday that she needs a companion, that I alone am not enough for her. I managed to locate a lone boy at a rescue about three hours from here, & though I'm not ready for a brand new soul, Minxie has a hole to fill & this little man needs a home. I've arranged to adopt him on tuesday, I just hope he knows what big shoes he has to fill.

On top of everything else, I still have to leave for petsitting on thursday & will be taking everything with me. Anyone who doesn't have an order placed should try to let me know what they would like by wednesday. I meant to give everyone a lot more notice, but plans changed. If anyone is tentative on an order, you can also just tell me which fabrics you'd like me to bring along so I'll have them on hand. Those with current orders are set to go, & thanks so much to you all for being so patient during this & letting me have time with my baby boy & grieve with Minx. I can't tell you how much I appreciate it.  :heart:

Post by: Violet976 on April 19, 2010, 04:49:24 PM
Thanks guys. I just got off the phone with the rescue & we are all set to pick him up tomorrow. Sadly I have no quarantine option at this point as Verdell was just at my moms house (where I'll be petsitting), Minx is about to be at my moms house as I can't leave her with my father who can't touch her/clean her cage (allergies/hives), & with my mother leaving I have no one here who can care for one or the other in a safe house. Add to that the fact that Minx is pretty much refusing anything except her banana meds & I'm afraid to leave her like this for much longer. I lost Jasper that way, after his second loss even another rat wasn't enough to snap him out of his grief. Hopefully Minx is not at that stage of grief just yet. She's probably more ready for another friend than I am, but I'm sure he'll work his magic. They always do.

Ok guys, thanks for bearing with me. I think I have managed to address all correspondence I fell behind on, so if you were awaiting a response & haven't gotten one, please email/pm me again as it might have gotten lost. So far, I have the following on my to do list, so if you're not here & should be, let me know as well.

TO DO LIST:
(these are not in any particular order)

-Danielle - Fleece/fabric scraps box. Will be mailed by Wednesday morning
-Alex - 4 completed hammocks. Will be mailed by Wednesday morning.

-Petunia - hold for lizards tunnel
-DebsRats - order
-Stacey - order
-Kirsten - order
-Kelly - raffle prize
-Kat - order
-summer - order
-alex - order
-MRR - donation hammocks
-Chelle's Critter Haven - donation hammocks


Also, since there was a hold on orders placed this month, I am extending Aprils Rescue of the Month, LilSpaz68, through May as well. It's easier all around & I really want to be able to give back to her during this hard time.  :heart:

Anything I've forgotten, please let me know. My brain is all over lately.  :thumbsup2:

Last shot guys, I leave in 5 hours & will be bringing all fabrics that have been requested. Let me know now, & I can bring any fabrics you might be considering with me, otherwise, please expect delays on order requests as I will only be driving back here once or twice if needed to pick up more requested fabrics.

Everyone who's already contacted me is set to go. All paid orders are cut & packed, all unpaid orders are uncut but the fabric is coming along, and any requested fabrics are packed up as well. Premades will be coming along too, if anyones in a hurry for a hammock.  :thumbsup2:

Also, this time I will have internet connection, so there should be no delay in response.

AnW819: Were you interested in one of the premades, or a custom order? For premades, I'll need to know which hammock you wanted. For custom orders, I'll need to know the size & fabric (& backup fabric) you would like. If you send me an email I can get your order arranged & payment worked out for you.  :thumbsup2: Let me know.



Nomi: Received & responded to. I've got both potential fabrics in the pile to take with me.  :thumbsup2:

Aren't those tie dyes just wild? My fave of course is the black one...  :heart:

Just wanted to update that I'm still a bit behind at this point. My father was in a motorcycle accident w/ a deer two days ago (luckily the deer appeared to have made it, and my father is a little battered with maybe one break in his hand), so it's been a bit hectic... again. Honestly could have been so much worse, so we're both pretty grateful.

But, I'm still slowly getting these hammocks out. Working on 3 playhouses right now, so I'm going to try & do them assembly line style to gain some ground. As always, if anyone is tired of the wait, just shoot me an email & I can refund your order. I promise no hard feelings.  :thumbsup2:

Ooh your Father had someone lookin out for him!  My husband rides his motorcycle everyday to work and what not.  And sometimes we go on runs together.  My Mom and Uncle ride on occassion for Motorcycle runs or road trips too.  I know it's scary when an accident happens especially a motorcycle one.

Andie: Luckily my father is more of a recreational rider, & this is a pretty safe driving area w/ not too much traffic. Its really the animals that are the bigger concern here. I tag along with him sometimes, & this had been a pretty good wake up call for what kind of clothing & gear I'll want to be wearing from now on.  :eek:



It seems to be Playhouse week, & let me tell you, even assembly line style these buggers are still monsters to make...  :sleepy3: Luckily, they make up for it when finished.  :heart:

Stacey: Got your 2 Playhouses ready & set to ship out tomorrow for you. Thanks so much for your patience & I hope your rats love them. The Dinos are fantastic!

Ok guys... mom managed to snag some AWESOME fabrics during her cruise to Puerto Viarta. Snag em while you can, cuz when they're gone, they're gone!

Big photo so you can really see the fantastic bugs:

I just wanted to let you know, I just got back from the vet and the pet store and everyone commented on the VW bugs tube on how cute it
was.

MRR just got the package you sent! THANK YOU again! Your work always amazes me! I have to tell you, I have this weird habit of smelling the hammocks people send us. I don't know why, I just do! Yours always put me in a state of euphoria! I LOVE smelling your hammies! LOL! What is it that I am smelling? Laundry soap? Dryer sheets? a candle? It is very subtle but whatever it is totally relaxes me and I need to get me some! :)

kimmyizme: Ha... at first when you said you were smelling them, I was afraid of what the verdict would be.  :yelcutelaugh: Honestly, I'm not entirely sure what makes them smell so nice. I wash them with a natural unscented detergent, but I also use Shout ColorCatcher to catch any bleeding, so perhaps that's it?  ??? Sometimes I use a Monkeyfarts (coconut/pineapple/banana) handsanitizer before I sew from Sandi's Soap Scents, so that could be it too?

Sorry to not be of more help on that one, but it's nice to know they smell nice. I just smelled some of my outgoing hammocks, & I couldn't smell anything...  :-\  :yelcutelaugh:



DebsRats: I'm so happy to hear the VW tube was a hit! & I got your PM & will be setting aside a Playhouse in each of the new fabrics for you.  :thumbsup2:

Ok everyone, I finally tallied the total raised for the month of April. I've also decided to keep Shelagh, "LilSpaz68", on as May's Rescue of the Month as well, so all purchases during the month of May will benefit Shelagh as well.  :BlueDumboSmile:

April's Amount Raised for Rescues:
$40 Shelagh -AKA- "LilSpaz68" on Goosemoose & RatShack

$9 M.R.R.



Also, it looks like I will be petsitting again around May 18th-May 23rd, so please get all orders/fabric requests in before May 15th to avoid delays.  :thumbsup2:

* New "Rattie Cabana" design now in test phases for sizing. Not yet listed on the website, but email if interested & I can customize sizing for you & discuss pricing. I'm still figuring out sizing & pricing, but I think a Ratty Cabana identical to the one in the photo will run about $17 *

Hey Melissa! I'm waiting for the next cage cleaning to put in the "official" bungalow, but for now I put in the original. And guess what? I discovered that if I put up the cube touching the ramp going to the 2nd level, they can just climb into to back hole! So it looks like I'll be able to use both bungalows after all, yay! Here's a couple of photos of them when I put it in.

Ok guys, one more week to get in orders before I leave again for petsitting! I will be petsitting again May 18-23, so please expect delays for checking fabric availability during that timeframe. All orders & requests made before May 17th will be going with me. Also, I will be without internet access at the house I am staying at, so might only get to check emails every few days or so.  :thumbsup2:



LOTR_Ratties: I'm so happy that whoopsie bungalow still worked out well for you! & quite the little models you have there as well... Lucy looks like she's winking at the camera for you.



NightMelody: Wowza, did this set take some time...  :BlueDumboSmileTongue: I am absolutely in love with it though. You know how I love super colorful fabrics, & this set feels so nice & summery to me. All set & ready to ship when you are.  :BlueDumboSmile:

Forgot to tell you, I got the bunk bed and it's gorgeous! I tried giving it to the 3 year old lab rat lady I'm "fostering" but she hasn't figured it out. She never had hammocks before so it's too complicated for her!  :yelcutelaugh:

Nomi: My goodness, 3 years old is quite the milestone! So sad that she's never had a hammock in all that time. Hopefully she'll get the hang of it quickly!



Erica: Your Spoiled Rotten Package is complete & turned out absolutely stunning! The blue fleece is actually a bit darker but it matches the dark tones in the Orange Patchwork really well. I wish my camera had done this set justice, none of the fabrics in the picture picked up correctly.... Can't wait for you to see it, it'll be in the mail monday morning after I verify your new shipping address!  :BlueDumboSmile:

change of plans... I am now leaving for petsitting Monday, so any potential orders need to be in by Sunday night to avoid delays. Sorry for any inconvenience. I only have 4 small orders to go, so now's a great time to get in the rotation, but I will also be sewing up lots & lots of premades so if you miss getting your order in, stay on the lookout for those. orders will still be accepted after monday, but expect delays until the 23rd

Also, I can't type easily at the moment, so I will respond to all correspondence in the morning. Thanks guys.  :BlueDumboSmile:

Eek, I never got any notification of these posts or I would have hopped on & reassured everyone.  :doh: I am alive & well, I cut my finger on some glass while housecleaning friday, & couldn't type as everytime I typed it would open the cut & start bleeding again. So, I splinted the finger & gave it a few days to clot up well...

So, mystery solved, so sorry for the worry guys.  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:

I believe I have responded back to all inquiries at this point, so if you didn't get a response please email/pm me again. I have all requested fabrics/orders with me & will be checking emails every couple of days. I will also be posting with some premades later this week, but until then, here are a couple more new fabrics:

I am back from petsitting so no more order delays at this point. In fact, I only have two more paid Playhouses to sew & then I wont have any more orders to finish!!! I can't recall the last time I've been order free, so if anyone is looking for quick turn around on an order, now's the time to squeeze it in.  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:

Summer & Alex, your orders mailed out yesterday & I'll be posting photos tomorrow when I upload all the completed order pics for the week.  :thumbsup2:

Nightmelody: I'm so glad to see you finally got time to get that up. I hope that means that everything is going better with your rats now.  :thumbsup2: What a scary situation.  :heart:



DebsRats: Your Playhouses are complete & will be shipping out Monday morning. I have been dying to work with these two fabrics, & they most certainly did not disappoint! Hope you & your rats love them both, & thanks again.

Hey Melissa, I'm so sorry I'm just now commenting on my playhouse!! I have been very sick, and have been teetering on the verge of pneumonia AGAIN.... *sigh* I do NOT want to go through that again, I can tell you that. But I am trying to take care of myself and hoping I'm going to get better before it gets any worse. :-\

Anyway, the playhouse is absolutely GORGEOUS, I just love it!!!! I'm so glad I chose the Garden Buggies, it's so colorful and bright, just like I like it!! And as soon as I am feeling better and get a full hammock change-out done, I promise to snap some pics. :wink5:

As for Gollum, he's a little bit past age 2 now, and as much of an energetic punk as ever, hahaha.

Well, again, thank you so much for my awesome playhouse.

Here are a few of the best ones:

Nightmelody: I have exactly 2 yards of that one. In general, I don't believe many of the fabrics I was given go over 2 yards in amount. So... definitely not a full Kat's Extra Spoiled Rotten, but you could still get a fair amount out of it if you'd like. It also has a pretty neat pattern when reversed, which I could send you a photo of if you're interested.  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:

Finally getting back to the internet, I hope everyone had a fantastic Memorial Day weekend!!!

*Website totals for our rescue donations are finally up to date. Unless I get any last minute orders, it looks as if $27.50 was raised for Shelagh -AKA- "LilSpaz68", & $8 was raised for Mainely Rat Rescue. Thanks so much everyone for making this possible. I haven't decided on my Rescue of the Month for June, but should have one up in the next few days.

*The Rat Stash is now on Facebook! I'm really not overly familiar with facebook, so I can't guarantee it will stay there, but please feel free to check it out & let me know if it's something worthwhile to upkeep.

 (http://www.buttonshut.com/Facebook-Buttons/facebook4.gif) (http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Rat-Stash/104740432907109)

The website is also now set up for testimonials at the bottom of each individual hammock page, so feel free to leave comments there if you'd like.

*Lots of new fabrics have been added for hammocks, & I'm also selling some in the Classified section of the forum.
 
Available Hammock Fabrics Here (http://www.flickr.com/photos/scarletnotion/sets/72157615908589934/)

 Fabric for Sale Here (http://www.goosemoose.com/component/option,com_smf/Itemid,118/forum,rat/topic,4070800.0)

*I am hoping to finally get around to making some of the new Rattie Cabanas as premades this week, so if anyone has any preferences they would like to see, please let me know.

Melissa, I will try to send your money tonight, if not I will definitely send it tomorrow night.  I am currently heading up in Ohio so I can pick up my boys tomorrow morning! Doing this by phone is too frustrating for me (wouldn't let me reply to your pm).  Hopefully the hotel with have wireless.

Do you have more of the candy fabrics for more pieces?  I was specifically thinking a pocker bunker (I think that is what it is called) and a small hammock.  I will get back with you when I get to a real computer.

ybnormal: I had just enough left of Candy Hearts for another Rattified Wall Pouch, which is already cut & ready to sew. I was going to pair it with black fleece, but could easily switch it to orange, pink or some other color on hand for you. I'm going to send you a PM in a moment with some picture references, in case they help any.  :thumbsup2:

ybnormal:  So happy that you like it. How funny though, that hammock size seems so average to me. I think that's what owning a ferret nation cage does to people... they screw with ones sense of sizing.  :yelcutelaugh:



 :hyper:Woo hoo, finally got the Rattie Cabanas & Corner Tunnels ready for actual sale. They will be posted on the website within the hour, but here is a sneak peek of pricing & general appearance. At present time, the Ratty Cabanas are currently only offered in one size (which is geared for Ferret Nations, Critter Nations & Playpens), but I will be happy to work with custom sizing for smaller Cabanas until I get a good feel for permanent alternate sizing options. So... the wait is over guys, sorry it took me so long to get my butt in gear with these.  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:

Ratty Cabana in Squiggles (9"x11" Top w/ 9"x9" Wings) - $18 Shipped
(this one has 4 extra grommets in the center portion from me trying to find the best grommet placement. You will want to use the upper grommets in the center portion for the best appearance when hanging)  :thumbsup2:

You are killing me!  I definitely need the cabana.  It has the same colors as my wall pouch and the bed that I had that I bought it to coordinate with.  You would not believe how well they go together.

Post by: Violet976 on June 17, 2010, 10:44:06 PM
Trillian: Sadly, I am not overly familiar with ferret sizing. My gut tells me that they are a bit too small for a ferret or two (they measure 14"Lx8"Wx12"H), but can easily be resized for one if I knew what measurements would be ideal. Do you happen to have any toys that would help you reference how large you'd like a ferret playhouse to be?

Sorry to not be of more help. Perhaps someone else who has bought one & possibly owns ferrets can chime in...  :poke:

Anyone here an owner of a Cabana or Playhouse that uses a Martins R-695? I've been thinking about purchasing one but I'm afraid they would be too gigantic for my cage! I'm terrible with spatial relationships so I don't know if it's a good size. Any happy Martins owners with a picture for reference?

Post by: Violet976 on June 19, 2010, 07:07:16 PM
Nomi: Since I just put the first Ratty Cabana in the mail a few days ago, you wont find any customers to reference for those. & I believe I only have one martin's customer photo with a Playhouse (not sure which martins cage, but it will give you a good idea of what they look like). I'll also give you the size measurements for both the Playhouse & the Cabana for reference, both of which can easily be sized down if needed.

Standard Playhouse: (14"Long x 8"Wide x 12"height)

Standard Cabana: Dimensions when hanging as pictured on website: (21"Long x 9"Wide x 7"Height)
Total Dimensions: (9"x11" Top w/ 9"x9" Wings & 7"height)

A standard Playhouse in a Martins:
(http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4062/4715034703_c12fa70bd8_b.jpg)

Here is a second martin's playhouse photo, but this Playhouse was actually sized down to customer specifications & is much smaller than an actual Playhouse. You'll notice it was also one of the very first Playhouses, as it is missing the two ribbons in the middle for hanging. But, gives you a good idea that they can be sized down & still work very nicely.

flyingteapot: I squeezed your Corner Tunnel out in time to get it mailed today along with your Ratty Cabana. Be sure to let me know what your rattums think of the new designs, or where any improvements can be made.  :thumbsup2:

I love tie dye fleece  :hyper:

I can't wait to see how they like it. they have an insane love for tube hammocks and the corner design is perfect for my RUUD. hopefully I'll be able to borrow my Dad's digital camera and get a shot. I've really got to replace mine one of these days  :doh:

Due to a special request, I have now made my first Bonding Pouch! I think it came out pretty darn good, & if there is enough interest I will add them to our list of available products.  :BlueDumboSmile:

I've combined my attempt to find new toy ideas for my rattums with my desire to find as many uses as possible for my fleece scraps... & came up with Fleece Poufs! These are made with whatever remnants I have on hand & stuffed full with fleece scraps, & show off my obvious lack of braiding skills.  :BlueDumboSmileTongue: The great thing about them is once the rats tear into them, they can take the fleece scraps & stash them away in their favorite hidey hut.

Let me know if there is any interest in these. I'm planning to make them in various shapes/sizes/etc, with a grommet on top for easy hanging. They will not be flawless by any means, but they should be a wonderful way to minimize our waste factor while providing some entertainment for many bored rattums out there.  :thumbsup2:

I've been having a blast trying to come up with some fun toy ideas. Keep an eye on the website, they'll be popping up all week!  :thumbsup2:

These are hanging treat balls. They look like whiffle golf balls, but are actually sized as children's whiffle baseballs, which makes them perfect for stuffing long fleece strings or some favorite treats in. I currently have 4 available, & will be listing them for sale tomorrow.

"melandrew": I just put them up on the website (under "Premades"). The Hanging Treat Balls are $4 each & I currently have 4 made & enough supplies to make 4 more. All hanging toys will be grommeted before shipping, & hanging metal hooks or colored rings are also available for .25cents each if needed.

Any other questions, just let me know!  :thumbsup2:

Birthday package for Weaver's Ratties!!!! These are the last hammocks in this fabric. I have enough left for some birthday Poufs, but that's about it.

Here is another possible new design. This one was a little rough as it was the first one, but I think it came out pretty nice. The bottom section is unattached in the middle so rats can pass through to each side.

critterchic: I'm so glad you like it. I have to come up with a name for it & get it up on the website, but for anyone interested in the new design I can most definitely make them now. I think they will be about $18 shipped, as they are basically a modified ratty cabana & will be priced the same.

For a limited time, take 10% off all hammocks (custom or premade) when you mention this sale at the time of order. Sale excludes package deals & toys/accessories, but anything else is fair game.  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:

rodent_girl_1985: I'm so happy your rats are still enjoying the hammocks. I still have the batcaves & my rats love them. They are like adding a whole extra level to the cage!  :thumbsup2: & I myself cannot get enough of the Carebears one you made for me.


Friday (at midnight) is the last day to vote on the newest design name.
It looks like it might be down to "Double Whammy" or "The Rat Stash", so if you have a name preference be sure to get your vote in.  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:

Also, 10% Off Hammocks Sale ends Sunday at midnight.
I've got a few orders to go but turnaround time is still pretty good at this point.

The three Halloween fabrics posted above should be arriving on August 9th.
I only have 2 yards of each coming, so it's first come, first serve. Anyone interested in larger orders for those please let me know so I can see about ordering more.

Possible design addition. It's pretty simply, so I'm sure it's been done before. But I haven't seen it for sale so if it's liked I'll add it to the list of available hammocks (unless someone finds that it's someone else's design).

& one more possible new design...   ::)  I absolutely adore this one though, so I hope the rest of you do as well. I don't know if this is an original or not, but I myself have yet to see it done. This one can hang at least three ways, but please mind my lack of ability to photograph it well. Hopefully, you get the idea:

Hanging option #1 - I think this would work nicest hung in a corner w/ 3 of the sides clipped to the side of the cage for extra stability.
(http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4099/4874598434_3bf7d18d29_z.jpg)

Hanging option #2 (my intended purpose) - sort of a pop up tent hammock. The top is more for look than function, but I'm sure a determined small rat could squeeze on up there. ;)
(http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4117/4874598448_b0f79d0d04_z.jpg)

Hanging option #3 - your good old basic pocket hammock, with four entrances. ;)

I LOVE your "Burton's Halloween" fabric and your "Halloween Patchwork" fabrics.
I LOVE Halloween, and I definitely cannot wait to decorate my rats' cages with Halloween stuff! ;D

So, when do I need to order Halloween stuff in order to get it two weeks before Halloween?

Chewbecca: I would advise ordering by early-mid September if you'd like them to arrive 2 weeks before Halloween. Or at least check in with me at that point & I can advise of wait time.  :thumbsup2: I also usually keep updates on the forum at holiday season so everyone knows that they need to get orders in quickly.

Aren't those Halloween prints great? I love Burton's Halloween but think it gets overlooked because the thumbnail looks so blah.  :yelcutelaugh:

Definitely!  By then I'll have my boys and know which kind of hammocks they like the most.
And I don't think it's the that thumbnail photo is blah, it's just that it's a unique design that takes a second look to see what it is.  And thumbnail photos are so small that it's hard to pick up the design on that small photo.  So, it comes out looking like orange with black swirls.
But I clicked on all your fabrics last night, and I noticed how cool that one was!

So, yes, I'll definitely be ordering stuff for Halloween.
I'll be ordering a Simpsons set from KAT, and then I'll order from you. ;D

Chewbecca: Sounds good. Whenever you're ready you know where to find me.  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:



Littleodawa: I most certainly can. Since there seems to be interest in it I'll add it to the website later today. For anyone wanting to order before I get it listed, the one pictured would probably be standard in size. It lays 14"x14" flat, & when hanging in the first position hangs about 10"-11" in height. I'm thinking I'll price the mediums at $15 Shipped, & I'll play around with a large sizing option (probably 16"x16" when flat for $17).

You've been on quite the creativity kick, haven't you? You seem to have a good eye for coming up with designs. I'm hopeless with geometry and spatial things!  :yelcutelaugh: It took my forever to figure out how to sew a stupid cube because I couldn't wrap my brain around the circle opening. I'm trying to make cuddle cups for a rescue right now and it's a disaster!

I really love that new one, so I'll have to keep it in mind next time I look for a new treat. My old girl Ruby is slowing down so I have to start thinking about geriatric-friendly hammocks...

Nomi: Ha, I've actually been feeling bummed this week because I couldn't come up with anything. The wheels were spinning but just driving me crazy with no results. I'm horrible at geometry too. I don't normally try to come up with new ideas, I just look at my own previous ones & things around me to see where I could branch off them. Much easier. You are more than welcome to sew up any of mine for rescues as well. You do wonderful work & I'd never be bothered as your work benefits so many fantastic rescues.   :BlueDumboSmile: As for the cuddle cups, have you checked out rattributes tutorials? I believe they have one for those, I've just never wanted to battle with batting.  :yelcutelaugh:

I adore that Owl and sealife fabric!  Needless to say, I haven't been out looking for fabric lately.  If you don't mind me asking where did you find it or who makes it?  I'm wanting to make my bestest friend from back home who is expecting a baby boy soon, a baby blanket and I think one of those would be perfect!

But I went in to buy thread &, well... you know the rest of the story. If you get your order in today you'll still get the sale prices.  :thumbsup2:



Both sales end tonight @ midnight! Don't forget to get your last minute orders in.  :thumbsup2:

My ratties got their new hammies last night.  They are loving them almost as much as I do ;)  Here are some pictures of my babies using their new goodies. :wink5:

My ratties LOVE their new Rat Stash!!

Misskiwi67: I'm so happy you like it all. I left them sitting out displayed last night so I could keep looking at them. They are even nicer in person, as you can't see some of the fabrics well in the photo.



WEAVER: Ha, that sounds like Minx. She adores laying in the bottom tunnels of the Rat Stash hammock, & up until now has boycotted almost all of my designs.  :yelcutelaugh: Minx looks exactly like Claire does anytime I walk by.
P.S. Your cage looks fantastically bright, as usual.  :heart:

For those of you planning big Halloween orders, now's the time to start arranging them. If anyone wants a large order placed all in one fabric, please contact me with the fabric you are hoping for so I can see if I have enough & plan to look for more if need be. I'll keep everyone updated on my order status so you can plan Halloween orders accordingly, but at this point I'm giving out mid September estimates for completion, & already have another large order scheduled in October.  :thumbsup2:

Canadian/International orders should be arranged now as I cannot be held accountable for delays due to customs.

krazycatlady: Isn't that cat fabric fantastic? By far one of my fave Halloween ones, as I've never quite seen a cat fabric like that.  :yelcutelaugh:

Not sure what price range you're looking at, but for three rats the Playhouses, Rat Stash Hammocks, Ratty Cabanas & Pocket Bunkers all seem to be well liked. & I do still have the Under the Sea flat hammock available. Just shoot me a PM with what you'd like & we can go from there. :thumbsup2:

It's that time again... here are our final totals for our rescue donations raised this month.  :thumbsup2:

Star's Rat Rescue: $32
Mainely Rat Rescue: $8

I have also decided to keep Star's Rat Rescue onboard for the third month in a row as they are still working so hard to line up loving forever homes for so many of the wonderful rats they took in. Through their tireless efforts, they are managing to find homes, raise funds, & arrange transport across many states to get these beautiful creatures the lives they truly deserve.  :heart:

One new fabric (I went & stocked up on fleece today  ::) )

Only 1 yard of this available:
(http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4087/4955392431_c7bd7810b1.jpg)



I also updated the fabric page to now include "fleece prints" & "last chance fabrics". Both will be very limited availability, as I have a lot of great small pieces of fabric that no one ever gets to see. I still need to arrange a system for pricing fleece on fleece hammocks, but I'll try to get that figured out shortly & list it on the website.

Here is a "Weaver"ized Rat Stash Hammock. By special request, we've chopped the top, added a pocket & monster sized this baby up (13"x15" top hammock measurements). This one is off to Weaver's crew to test & fine tune. I believe the regular size will be slightly smaller as the two tunnels blend into one open space more than they do on the original small Rat Stash hammock.

I think I finally got my thermal printer up & running, so all orders within the USA should now be going out with USPS delivery confirmation. Not quite as good as tracking (which USPS doesn't offer in full - tracking each scan in/scan out location), but close. I know, I'm seriously behind on the times.  ::)

Due to a special request, here is a first attempt at a ramp cover. Since I just bought some batting to play with, I decided to try for a fully padded, multi-fabric one. The first attempt is a bit too snug & needs to go up one ladder notch, but I think it came out pretty well. If there is enough interest & the first testers approve, I'll consider offering them on the website.  :thumbsup2:

Would you be making them for Martins cages? I have my ramps detached at the bottom so I'd love some slip covers. My older HED girl had a scare with her foot getting a tad caught and I'm worried about them being open now  :-[

Post by: Violet976 on September 11, 2010, 11:14:33 PM
Nomi: I'm not even sure I would know how to sew them for a Martins cage, seeing as I threw away all the levels & ramps of my old martins. Are Martins ramps all the same length & width? I do have one in the garage that needs to be cleaned, rustoleumed & donated that I could probably practice on.

It might be possible, but it is tough to make something an exact fit without the item in front of you. & getting the padding to be a snug fit without being to tight is tricky as well. So far, I'm adding over two inches each way to accommodate what gets lost in the sewing.  :BlueDumboSmile: If you don't mind working with me though, I'd still be happy to give something a shot.  :thumbsup2:

Post by: Stacy M on September 11, 2010, 11:57:05 PM
Martins ramps are the same width but not necesarrily length.  I measured the ramps in my RUDD (so a 680 and 695) and some are approx. 12 others about 15.  They are all 5 inches wide and each side has a 1/2 inch "lip."  They seem like they would be more difficult to do than CN/FN ones because of that side lip thingy they have, but not impossible.  Good idea to make them for people whos rats have HED.  The ones that Midwest sells are limited in colors so yours will be cuter.  Oh and this might be helpful to you, but when I make things the same way as that (slide on) for the shelves they sell at Petsmart I usually make it with fleece and it is much easier that way because it has some stretch to it :)

For Alex: Here is my second attempt at a fleece/fleece ramp cover, this time nixing the batting & instead lining the cover with sherpa fleece. The one was a little too big, as I was using my measurements for batting, but is just about there & is also fully reversible.

I am just slightly ahead of schedule, so I do believe I can still squeeze in a few more Halloween orders if anyone is interested.  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:

Also, our Rescue of the Month totals are not up to date. We did a mid month donation to help out with Star's Rat Rescue Chip-In for food which is accounted for on the website, but the current running total is about a week behind & will be updated shortly.  :thumbsup2:

I am way ahead of schedule folks, with just 2 more orders to go totaling 5 hammocks between them. So... there is still plenty of time to get more Halloween orders in.  :poke:

I finished 2 more orders today that are just waiting for my grommets to arrive tomorrow. I hope to have these out Saturday if my carrier will pick them up during her drop off.

For Shelly: I adore this set. The colors have such a great fall feel to them!  :heart:

I want a halloween set SO bad, but I've been off work for a month now :( NEXT year!

I got those hammocks today, finally :) I was starting to worry that they'd been lost in the mail. They are absolutely gorgeous, though I won't be using them for a little bit. I still need to get metal hooks, haha. And my new boys chew EVERYTHING, no more new hammocks for them until they learn to keep their mouths OFF their beautiful hammocks. ((I hope they do learn to do that :-\)) I'm so sad that they came the day after Jinto died though :( He loved hammocks so much.

Troter: Oh my goodness... I just read his memorial. I am absolutely heartbroken that they arrived one day after he passed away. I've been told customs could be slow, but I never imagined it to be that slow, & I remember you were telling me that you hoped Jinto would get to see them. I'm so sorry that he never had the chance, but I am ever so thankful that he passed away at home by your side, & gave you the chance to say goodbye.  :heart:

So, the grommets that I ordered 3 weeks in advance were on scheduled delivery for yesterday, until yesterday when they changed the status to "redelivery scheduled for 9/20". I ran around town to 3 stores, Joann's included, & not one had the size grommets I need. So... my apologies to the last two orders I posted. They will be shipping out Monday or Tuesday.  :-\



One the bright side, just got a great "new" shelf to store even more fabric on. We've been stocking up on fleece & the armiore is now completely stuffed.  :yelcutelaugh: Gave me a reason to redo my closet though, & I adore this shelf.  :heart:

& here are pictures of the fleece remnants we've been stocking up on. These are limited in availability. Some are also larger prints & will only be suitable for certain hammocks. If interested, just drop me a line with what fabric & hammocks you were thinking of & I'll see if I have enough & if the print is compatible with your selection.

Here are my favorites... the rest can be seen HERE. (http://www.flickr.com/photos/scarletnotion/sets/72157624749619749/)

Sorry guys, my dsl crashed today. I also have some temp jobs lined up this week, so my correspondence will be a tad slower than usual. I'll try to get through all emails received today though. Also, I believe my estimates are nearing mid October, so now's the time for any last minute Halloween orders.

Chewbecca: I'm so glad you like them! That was an awesome set & I can't wait to see it in action!

Violet7560: I'm so happy you emailed me before I sent the other one out. The crackles really added to the Halloween theme!

Everyone thank Nightmelody for another great Halloween fabric! I probably only have room for one, possibly two more Halloween orders at this point.

I finally got through my email inbox & everyone should have replies. For anyone who placed an order & didn't receive a reply, please let me know. Also, don't forget to check your spam folders, as sometimes responses can end up there.  :thumbsup2:

Ok guys, website totals for our Rescue of the Month, Star's Rat Rescue, are finally updated again. Thanks for bearing with me guys. Also, I'm juggling 2 other jobs this week, along with painting KILZ sealant on our subfloor (so, two days spent in the heated shop with the rats), so correspondence might be slower.

Orders are booked out til end of October.  :thumbsup2:

Please expect a short delay in checking fabric availability for orders Tuesday night through Friday morning. I am going to store all of my fabric outside the house while we seal our floors & will be unable to measure out any fabrics. Orders can still be requested, but I wont be able to verify fabric availability for those requests until Friday. Thanks so much for your patience everyone.  :wink5:

&... here are a couple more fleece prints now available. Limited availability for each.

Please disregard the above post. The sealing of the floor has been delayed, so there is currently no delay in checking fabric availability. Been a crazy week guys, sorry for any confusion. Orders are still booked through the end of October.  :thumbsup2:

For Teri: Here are your 4 Padded CN/FN Ramp Covers in Toadstools. I think I finally got the sizing spot on. Let me know how they hold up to your rats.  :poke:

Good call on the padded CN/FN Ramp Covers! I've done covers, but I never thought of padding them :)

Thanks Neelia. They were actually a special request, & since I had been wanting to work with batting, I decided to go all out with them. I'm still waiting to see what the testers think of them, as Minx will use the padded ramp, but Bosco wont touch it.  ::) That, & I'll have to see how much demand there is for them, because these are quite a pain to make. I went with size 8 batting, & two layers of that stuff along with 4 layers of flannel is really thick...  :yelcutelaugh:

I'm still working with our testers for the final verdict, but if all goes well, padded FN/CN ramp covers & a "Weaverized" Rat Stash will be available shortly, along with another modified design for a special request from Alex.

Also one more amazing new fabric. This was a special request for an upcoming order, but I bought some extra because it was too good to pass up:
