Shop News...

First of all, I just wanted to touch base with everyone on a couple things regarding the shop. I know many of you are waiting on orders and I want you to know that I am sewing just as fast as I possibly can. I realize a lot of times when you're shopping online you don't really think about what goes on behind the scenes. But just so everyone is knows, MandeeFranee Designs is a one woman show! :) Just one crafty, busy, single mom of three boys. Every Lens Pet™ and sock monster is 100% hand sewn (except the scrunchies I use for the LARGE Lens Pets™, those I sew myself but I use a machine). I do spend hours and hours sewing, every single day, well into the night and next morning most days. I hope to move the wait time up eventually, but right now with the sheer number of orders I am working on, things are shipping at almost exactly the six week mark. 

I know most of you already knew that, but I thought I'd throw it out there again just so everyone can rest assured, the orders are coming! :)
Now, in other news... I'd like to let you guys know about the newest ADD ON that just went up in my shop today! :) 
Available for LARGE Lens Pets™ only due to the size, this musical button plays the tune Old Macdonald Had a Farm. Just like the squeaker, it will be inside the Lens Pet™ so just a quick push of the button starts the tune up. Battery lasts up to 10,000 plays! Another great idea for capturing the attention of your fidgety little subjects! ;) More tunes may be available in the future, but for now this is the only one I have.
If you already have a pending order for one or more large Lens Pets™ that hasn't shipped yet, feel free to add one of these now. There is no shipping attached to the listing so you can purchase it for just the price of the button and add a note when you check out that you would like it added to an existing order.  As always, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions!

and an INFORMATION sneak peek... there will be a super fun new addition joining the Lens Pet family very soon! Not only new Lens Pet designs (which I always have in the works, just need more hours in the day to make them) but a completely new product that will (hopefully) appeal to a larger variety of customers. I'm excited about this addition so keep your eyes peeled for an official announcement. Until then, feel free to take a stab at guessing what it might be, here in the blog comments. ;)

Thank you, to all of my customers and friends for all of your support over the last few months. It's been a heck of a whirlwind and I'm having a blast! :)


  1. I love the music button. I recently got my Lens Pets in the mail and LOVE THEM. I was just telling other Photogs about you in the i heart faces community. Keep up the good work. - Ashley Swallow {}

  2. so glad to hear you like your Lens Pets Ashley! :) thank you for your kind words!

  3. I am so excited to read that you are adding a fun new addition and I am seriously hoping that it is a lens pet for us with digital cameras....=) I'll bet you could sell your creations as "hair scrunchies" for little girls too and they'd probably do just as well as your lens pets and sock monsters....I can imagine my Granddaughter wearing one on her ponytail....LOL I can hardly wait for the "reveal"....
