That sounds perfect!! Haha, I'm so glad somebody knows what I'm doing.   :D  Sure, if you want to, go ahead and add the cube in. I don't have room for it now, but I know I'll use it eventually! I'd rather buy one now that matches my set than want one later.  :)   I'm so excited, I totally loved that fabric right when I saw it! That will look so cute in there with them climbing around in it.

I get payed today but I'll have to see how much my check is before I know if I can buy them this weekend, cause I owe BF money for all the stuff I bought for the cage yesterday and I have to get diapers and other dumb stuff today lol. If not this weekend, for sure next weekend after I get paid Friday. It will probably be the latter the way I'm calculating it right now... I'm sorry, I hope that's not a problem.  :(  But hey, that means you don't have to make them for awhile! lol

I'm just glad someone liked the fabric! I was hoping someone would request a set in it heheh. Then I'll make the set a standard, pocket, tube, DD, and cube :] And don't worry about paying this weekend. I can have it made and waiting for you until you can send the payment :] You can PM me your zipcode now or whenever you're ready to pay and I'll get back to you with a total including shipping.

coliekumar: Tee hee I was reluctant to part with them  ;D

crested: Yay! I'm relieved you like them! I was worried haha.

NEWS!  :P From now on, I'll be offering a free fleece rope with any order greater than $40 dollars (not including shipping) in addition to treat sacs. Anyone with an order under $40 dollars can have one added to their order for $3.00.

Would anyone be interested in buying fleece ropes? I might offer them for sale depending on what you guys think.

Alrighty :] I'm going to start offering fleece ropes for sale. I'm going to have to experiment with length though.  I'll have a few premades available soon for anyone who'd like to grab some. I'm gonna have to figure out how people should order colors. We'll see.

Fleece ropes have now been added to the products list the OP and on my website  ;D They will be about 24 inches long and can be made with three or five strands. I'm probably going to start adding them to my premade sets as well.

I have five ropes of various lengths that I made as trials. The longest is 24" and the shortest is 16". They're my first and a few aren't as taut as I'd like and so I'm going to be offering them free to the next order greater than $45! Claimed


I also have this 5-strand rope. :P Sold

It's $3.50 + shipping OR you can add it to your next order for just $4 more and no added shipping.

I wanted to let you guys know that I have a few new designs in the works that I'm trying out!

They are

- Corner tube- basically a tube in the shape of an L
- T-tube- a tube in the shape of a capital T, much like the beloved PVC tubes!
- Pouch Hammock: a cute, cozy standard with a pouch beneath it to cuddle in!

I'm hoping to unveil these in the next two-ish weeks, but I have several orders to get through first. Once I have a few premades done, I'll be taking trial customers to try these out and give me feedback about how I can improve them. Keep your eyes out for those!

I've decided to just give the bundle of ropes (not including the 5 strand one) in the next order that's greater than $45.

I'm glad you like it!! And your boys don't have to know its pink  ;) For all they know, the pattern has dragons and swords on it.

The pouches are treat sacks. I include them for free with every order. They're filled with treats for your ratties to tear into.

Oh how cute! I can't wait to see them have fun getting into those, what a cute idea.   :)  I'll take pictures of them doing that. I am going to take lots of pictures!

And yeah, I'll just tell them the hammocks are covered in monster trucks and bugs.   :P  They don't have to know the truth. What they don't know, wont hurt them.   :yelcutelaugh:

Happy Customer Pics!!!!
Well my boys just LOVE their dino set!  and it looks so cute and is so well made.  I can't say enough good things about the 2 sets I got!  The quality is so great I can see these really lasting even tho my guys are all crazy chewers.
  My daughter and I were so excited to get the package in the mail.  Here she is helping me unpack it.  She is looking up at the CN, if you're wondering.

We hung the apple set first, in my lazy dumbo ratties cage.  They put it to use right away- here are Midna and Zelda sleeping in the tube.

Link prefers the pocket hammock  ;D

Dewdrop is wondering, why am I waking her up?  "Whats the meaning of this!  Im enjoying my cozy hammie!"

Now onto the boys cage!  My five boys reside in the bottom half of the CN.  Look at that mass cube!  The boys love it, its now their clubhouse  ;)

Mario on the comfy bunker:

Luigi in the massive custom corner hammock:

Mario decides the pocket hammock is the best place, for this nap anyway!

Eddie hanging out in the big cube (it's a foot tall  ;D)

The free treat pouches went over really well too!  The boys went crazy for them!  What IS inside them anyway?  I thought I felt cheerios and chocolate chips?


Anyway thanks again from some very satisfied customers  :rattysmiley:

Ratletlover: Happy to hear you liked the set! I'm very fond of that fabric hehe. I'll keep an eye out for your order  ;)

Xero:  ;D ;D I can't wait to see all your pictures!!

Colie: Thanks so much for the picture!! Your rats look so so adorable cozying up in that cube  :heart:

FHrats: Oh my god the pictures are so cute!! I love love love love happy customer pictures more than many things haha (and your daughter is an added bonus  :)). Link is the cutest manrat in that apple hammock and dewdrop's stinkeye is perfection ha. The dino set looks great in the cage  ;) These pics are already on my website  :heart:
Oh, and the treat sacs are filled with cheerios and a few yogies. Sometimes I have pumpkin seeds on hand and toss a few of those in too.
