Yo, Dudes n' Dudettes!

Yeah, the last newsletter was... when? August I think. So, I'm not overdue, just lazy. Didja miss me?

Hopefully, no one will answer that. :|

(A note to those of you who may be new to the newsletter... if some of this doesn't make sense to you. It's not you! I
don't get half of it either.)

Quickie Update!

Furnace? It's furnacing (yay!) Pretty much, anyway.

Ok, onward and sideways
COUPONS! Special COUPONS just for you guys n' gals. SAVE $15 on $50 or more. Just use coupon code FRFAM2007 when you
check out. Excludes taxes and shipping fees. Cannot be combined with any other offers, discounts or coupons. Blah, blah,
blah. You know the drill. Valid through November 28, 2007 at 11:59 p.m. (PST)
First of all... IMPORTANT...

::: yes dear? Oh, I see. Quite right:::


Second of all. (The coupons were first.)

:::: why is she always right?:::

This is a quick note to remind you about the holidays. (Like you needed a reminder) But not really about the holidays.

Head hurt yet? :)

Ok, I'll clarify. This is the season where everybody and their brother... and sister, wants a custom design. Actually, I
would assume so do sons, daughters, parents, uncles, cousins, aun... You get the idea. But I digress. I still have no
problem doing custom work but it gets really crazy this time of year and, as you know, I don't charge extra. So, there's
a line list forming to the left. Or, is that a list line forming to the left?

Or is it on the right?


So if you need that special customized item for that special person, please do it early! There's only so much I can do.

So many things... so little time. Cool! I always wanted to use that quote. Yeah, it's not perfect, but than neither am
I. I mean...

I also want to remind you about our cut-ups for your holiday cards.

They go great next to the stamp on the Christmas cards. That way you can "Masonify" the outside of your cards! Like that
word? Masonify!

I thought of that all by myself! I coined a phrase. Using just one word!

::: Yes dear? They can tell I thought of it?:::

::: Oh, ok.:::

:::: so coin doesn't work either huh?::::

::::How about if I call it Masonicafy? ::::

::::I'm thinking that look means no, huh?::::

:::: Masonicafai? ::::


:::: Too classy?::::

::::Oh. Too much like mayonaisse:::

::: what about OESify. Too iffy? Shrinerfi?:::


Christmas cards? Just check out our Holiday card section.

Hanukkah? The Masonic Card Shop.

Don't forget Stocking stuffers. Collectibles (aka ornaments), magnets, buttons, stickers n' such make GREAT Stocking
Stuffers. And, as a bonus, they actually fit in the stocking! Who knew?

COUPONS! Special COUPONS just for you guys. And girls. SAVE $15 on $50 or more. Just use coupong code FRFAM2007 when you
check out.

ooooo.... deja vu again. Or is there an echo in here? :::tap, tap... is this thing on?:::

12,000. Yup. Finally broke the 12,000 items barrier. Actually we have 12,645 unique items just for you and that's only
in our main shop. And we added two more Shops since the last newsletter! Most of you know The Masonic Shop and TMS II.
But now there's a TMS III and TMS IV besides our Fine Masonic (Mostly 14k gold) Jewelry Shop. See below for details.

No, that doesn't mean you have to be short. Be low means be short. Below means scroll down. And yes, I do have to
explain some of this stuff cuz this illustrious newsletter goes round the world to places where they don't speak
No, illustrious doesn't mean there are illustrations... oh, nevermind.

Really get noticed with the new 3.5" buttons. Great for visitations with your Lodge name (and/or maybe your title and/or
name) on it. Just let me know what your needs are.

Also, Yard signs. 22" x 15" signs with a collapsible U frame. If you have a special one you'd like made up, just let me

Did you know the tile boxes have been completely re-designed?

The throw pillows are back in stock. YESSSSS!!! Finally! I know a lot of you have been upset since they are great for
the Lodge couch and the den. But, wait no longer. We got em!

Some deja vu-ish kinda stuff...

Coupons? Besides the one above? Since some of you are forgetting that there are usually coupons available even when you
don't see them on the cafepress site. But if you hit our main page, you'll see we have coupons you can use. Just pick
the one best for you. And, they are re-useable. You can use it on one purchase, then go back later and use it on another
purchase. We're easy.
I just hate when there's a coupon available somewhere and I want to buy twice what the coupon is worth. Well, not so
here. I can order half of what I want, use the coupon, then go back and order the other half and... you guessed it. Use
the coupon again. Is that cool or what?

Ok, back to non deja vu

What else is new...

Umm.... Oh yeah! The Themed Section is growing. I just added a "past master" section. I created a few designs here and
there for the Past Master that aren't yet in that section. Eventually I'll try to move them all into their new section,
but for now, you'll just have to look around! Sorry.

The recycling Masons theme seems to be popular with the recycling Masons. Who knew? Great products to use for those
drives to collect cans and stuff for fund raising.

And by the way, the themed section sections, same thing goes. There are some designs here and there that will eventually
be moved there where they belong. Like the ever popular meet on the level design. That's also available in black outside
the themed area. The Zodiac section is growing slowly too.

The Regional Section (state, location or country) is growing rapidly. Again, this section is by request. Just don't have
time to figure out if someone wants something for their own state or country or city or whatever, so if you request an
assortment of products for your area, just ask. We'll make it for you.

Regional ceramic mugs and ceramic beer steins still have their own section. So if you need a mug or stein, they'll go
there. Why not keep them in with the regional things? I have no idea!

Don't forget the comic section. Seems to be a popular area! (Who knew?) With all the custom orders coming in lately I
haven't had too much time to add my warped humor there lately, but I'll get there! Keep checking! A lot of comic type
designs lately have been for Christmas so check them out. Folks seem to like the "Kiss a Mason" design.

Oh, before I forget, another reminder. (Hey, I'm old. I forget easy!)

I get email for custom designs all the time. But every once in a while I email back for some more information and never
hear from them again. So if you've ever written to me, I answer everything that has a question to it. If you haven't
heard back from me within a day or two, please email me again. I kinda long for the good old days when email was more
efficient than snail mail. It just never got lost. Now it gets lost as often as me.

Then again, I'm not too sure that's possible.

:::yes, dear. I know they know::::

Of course, AOL users sometimes forget that they have their internet email turned off. So, they can only get mail from
someone also on AOL. So if you're on AOL and haven't heard back... please check your settings! Then again... you won't
get this newsletter either so I guess any AOL users who don't get this newsletter can just skip this paragraph.

The linky stuff

(Yes, that's correct. Linky, not kinky)


We have links to some fine Masonic, OES and Shrine jewelry. Kind of pricey, but high quality. Actually incredible
stuff!!! Not your normal run of the mill rings n' things. Not much there I can afford, but it's really neat stuff! The
Hematite ring is positively jaw-dropping stunning! (Well, ok, it is to me, but then again, you know me) You gotta see
that. You want unusual, you got it! But rings can take time. So if you need one for Christmas, better hurry!

Oh, and there's a bit of a glitch in our Masonic pocket watches link. When you click on it, just click on the Masonic
Jewelry link and scroll down to the Masonic Pocket watches.

For Affiliates, a reminder...

!!!VERY IMPORTANT!!! Your CJ account number is NOT your CJ PID! When you log into your CJ account, your account number
is on the right hand side at the top of the screen. That is NOT your pid. You need to go to account-web site settings.
You'll find it there.

Don't forget, we have a banner page you can use for linking to us and if you need a special color or size or style...
just let me know and I'll make you something.

And yes, there's a banner page for those who aren't affiliating as well.

Don't know if you know it, but there is a site map to all our stuff (and even more).

Then there's the OES shop, the Shrine shop, our shop, a bunch of other Masonic products shops and... oh I
forget. Check it out for yourself. I think you'll find it interesting. Well, I hope you will anyway.
(Ok, If you were looking for the "see details below" from above... this is the BELOW from above.)
The Below. (See? I told you)

Oh yeah, a new international shop too. (TMS III)
Great for those of you on the other side of the pond. Or is that... ponds. Like the EU and Japan. Pricing is in all
kinds of non US currencies (But still includes US). Your choice.

And... The Masonic Shop IV. No, it's not sick and on an IV, it's number 4. Do I need to explain everything? sigh. TMS 4
has hard goods. That is, watches, jewelry, dog tags, key chains and things of that sort. Not the 14k gold things like in
the Jewelry shop, but more reasonably priced stuff. (Meaning things even I can afford) Check it out.

The new shops don't have very much in them yet but we'll be adding to them and yes, we do take requests there as well.

Ok, now for the deja vuey stuff...

Show off your own Lodge on line!!!

Links to other shops you may enjoy...

rtj's Junqueyard... (Unique Masonic coins, dogtags, lapel pins and more. Including Vietnam & Korean Vets coins!)

Really rockin' Masonic Embroidery anyone? Good people that do good work!
Don't forget to check out our wallpaper page. We still add to it once in a while. (and we do take requests)

Wow. Did I say this was a quick note? I think I lied.

Ok, I'm outta here. (Finally) Just wanted to update you on the new disaste... er, changes. In the meantime... Keep it

(If you read all of this, aren't you glad my newsletters are so far and few between?) And yes, wherever you see "we"
here... you can substitute "I" for it. There's only me, myself and I here so "we" may be misleading. Or does me, myself
and I equal we?

My head hurts.



P.S. I run all this through a spell checker before I send it. I like to see how many red lines I made before I send it.
No, I never fix em. Just like to count the squiggly red lines.
