I've put something in the shop...yay!

I really love the cute little japanese characters ( think paper-chase stickers and stuff ) that seem to be so in at the moment, especially putting sweet little faces on things, so I went with it and spent a really enjoyable evening making this for christmas.

I won't put anything in the shop that I'm not 100% happy with, hence the fact the shops are empty. This is neat and tidy and so cute that I felt it was good enough to go in, so at last my etsy shop has a listing, only one thing but I am hoping to add to it soon. It can be found here. I am having a go with etsy as I have done a few swaps to different countries and found on the whole that it is relatively easy to ship to other countries and as long as I keep the items and prices small if it all goes wrong I won't lose too much. I'm never going to make a living from it but I get enormous pleasure knowing that someone has actually wanted to give my makes a home.... Does that make sense?
Any way I'm off to make some sloe gin...yummy : )

Getting ahead of the game...well trying really hard to anyway.

As there is only four weeks and three days left until my littlies break up for the Christmas holidays ( running round living room hands in the air screaming with panic, I have so much to do eeeeek! ) I have been trying to get the teachers gifts sorted. So far I have managed to complete Hollie's teacher's gifts and at last a beautiful sunny day to take some pictures.

Hollie is in Hedgehog class and I had some lovely Michael Miller fabric with a hedgehog print so that was the theme ( the second mug rug I had already made so I only had to make one more. I am adding a lovely Cath Kidston christmas mug too. So two down two to go, Sophie is in Fireflies class! Wish me luck.
