There it is. My lovely craft stall. And me, looking quite frazzled after a rather sleepless night. But I had a great day, met some lovely people and even sold a few bits and pieces. The only thing that I wished I could've done differently is get my business cards ordered in time. But, lesson learnt - they are now on their way. Albeit, quite slowly...

My cupcakes went down a storm too (I think that most people who visited were initially there because of them, and not the plushies - but at least people were visiting!)

I sold two of my favourites, and didn't really want to let them go. Thought it would be a bit mean to take money off people, hide the plushies under the table and deny all knowledge. Fun, though :D

Aha. This blog stuff is harder than it looks.

This hasn't gone according to plan so far. I was supposed to update a little more regularly, with lots of interesting words and pretty pictures. And that hasn't quite happened.

But I have my craft fair in three days and so it's time to get serious. Blog me up, baby. Updates to follow.

The first blog post. (Dun dun duunnn)

Hello all. Welcome to my nice, shiny new blog.

I have wanted one of these for a long time. I think the reason I waited so long to set one up is that I didn't know if I would actually have anything interesting to say in it. And, true to form, I am now sat scratching my head and wondering what I can possibly type. But I do have a direction, I promise. I wanted a blog to help me record my new hobby, which is making plushies. Stuffed toys, felt creations, stuffies, plush toys... you get the idea. I didn't initally make them to sell, but have decided to venture into the likes of etsy and my first craft fair in two weeks time to see if anybody is interesting in welcoming a deformed monster into their life. Who isn't?

I am about halfway through a jellyfish-themed spikey-headed critter and as soon as I have finished him (and figured out how to add photos to this thing...) I will post a pic.

My aim is to update sporadically at best. But it's quality, not quantity that counts, right? I will start thinking of some decent content for next time.

That's all for now x
