End of Week 3

Hubbo's sister has promised him an extra fiver for his Movember total (currently at 90 squids! Woo!) for every different style he can adopt before the end of the month. So here we have the lip warmer at the end of week 3 and pre trim:

and post trim:

Apparently, it's going to go "all Errol Flynn" before Friday. Sigh.

I've Been Busy...

...finally updating my Folksy shop. Huzzah! I mean, I only made these things back in June, but there you are!

I've put some clasp purses and a couple of drawstring bags up there today; hopefully four more slightly larger drawstrings will be meeting them in the shop later this week when:

a) My camera batteries don't die on me mid-photo shoot
b) It stops raining long enough for some decent light
c) I'm not drawing knights/dragons/princesses etc
d) I'm not behind a desk in a library somewhere

I've been planning to put up some clasp purses for nearly three years now, so I think it's just about time I got them off the drawing board and out in to the real world! I've have already sold one this afternoon (the one with squirrels on, below), but as that was to Lovely Jutta, a friend IRL, I'm not sure that counts!

Please do take a look here. Ta v much.

Make Away

Make Away - Retail Ready People in Brighton
 Photo by Dan Thompson

Really, I should've blogged this weeks ago, but throughout November and up until this Sunday 25th, my Little Red Riding Hood themed prints have been for sale at Make Away, Brighton Square.

Now, Make Away is an awesome idea. Here's some blurb from their website:

Make-Away is a pop-up shop powered by Retail Ready People.
Delivered in partnership by vInspired and Retail Trust, Retail Ready People is a FREE 12-week skills development and volunteering programme which gives 16 – 25 year olds the chance to set up and run a high street shop in their local area. Retail Ready People provides training and support as well as practical skills and experience to help young people find out more about retail careers, progress and get promoted.

I just happened to see on Twitter that they were after people to sell their prints at the pop-up shop during November, emailed in, and was accepted. If you can get down there this weekend and lend some support to some fab young 'uns doing something really positive, and making use of an empty shop in our town centre, then please do go.

Here is a bit more info about Retail Ready people, Make Away and Empty Shops Network.

End of Week 2 #movember

Mo in Progress


End of week 1, and there is definite Mo-age. Actually, I think Hubbo could grow a great big, bushy beard within a month if he fancied it. Obviously, he would have to forfeit all kisses ever, but, still, it could be done.

Happy Movember


After um-ing and ahh-ing for too many years, Hubbo is finally getting on down and taking part in Movember. This was him at the stroke of midnight, clean shaven and ready for a bit of mo-hatching. I'm hoping he'll go for something Dali-esque, although I have a horrible feeling it's going be something like this.

If you would like to sponsor Hubbo, or find out more about Movember and raising awareness of prostate cancer, go here. Cheers muchly!
