37 Hours to go

9 Jun

The time is now really ticking down and with the second backer on board we are a step closer to seeing the kickstarter a success.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1507401260/three-legged-rabbit-crochet-and-amigurumi?ref=project_tumblr

I’ve learnt a lot over the last month of taking clearer photos and getting more of a sense of self across with each design. I am not a corporation. I am a single person creating designs from my mind. Taking influence from the things I love and the place I live.

There are so many new designs floating around my head that I want to do that is why I would love to have a single place to list them all. I’ve tried etsy before but find myself losing interest as you have to fight so hard being directly compared to others that everything starts looking the same.

So if you love crochet and all things geek and nature then why not get on board early and be in the know for new designs and choose some great levels of support, each giving you plenty for your support.

You can also have a sneak peak of a few ideas from one page in the growing pile of thoughts. With more from the seven deadly sins dolls, a brave deer knight, a second Horizon Zero Dawn robot and much much more.

Please have a look at the kickstarter and I will see you over there! It would be great to have more on board to share the love of crochet and begin the next year on an exciting footing.

Want crochet patterns?

12 May

I’m still working hard on new crochet creations and trying to get better at taking photos so I can do more photo tutorials in the pattern instructions.

But being on maternity leave it’s taking time to build funds for a one stop shop website to keep track of all the patterns and more easily offer them up for free! Yes free!

So I’ve turned to kickstarter with a humble and I hope achievable target. And with that in mind if you love free patterns and all things geek then please head over https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1507401260/three-legged-rabbit-crochet-and-amigurumi?ref=project_tweet to the link and pledge now.

I have so many patterns on my to do list I am excited for all that is to come!

So again if you love crochet and geeky creations the  pledge now. Any amount helps! The first load of free patterns include the stalk and sweet boy from Saga comic, a large complex saw tooth from Horizon Zero dawn and more!

Nothing like a bit of panic!

10 Jun

I recently had a very relaxing weekend. I was happy because I have been working towards having a website up and running to sell prints and other bits from so that I could make the switch from using Etsy which I don’t really get on with for where I am heading. This is manly because once purchasing something people rarely know the shop name or person who has made what they have bought. If asked where something is from a response would typically be “O from Etsy” or “from someone on Etsy” No mention of the creator.

But this leads me to having a few older items still up for sale on Etsy whilst my website gets to a point I am happy with it. I placed that postage would take 1 – 2 weeks which would give me enough time to pick a printer and have it ordered and set up before any print orders came through.

Error. I underestimated that I would actually get a sale and one requesting that it would be needed in a short time frame. Thus ensued a manic midnight purchasing of a large colour printer within budget and inks and paper for delivery on Tuesday. It is now Tuesday and the panic has begun to start as to how big this printer will actually be. I had have to order it to work because I cannot have the day off….I work in London and have a two hour journey home and need to get the printer onto a muchly overcrowded train.

On the plus side, a sale is nothing to be annoyed about and it was my own fault for underestimating people actually wanting to buy my items. Which is a nice thing.

So I shall celebrate instead of feeling bad for spending so much on new business toys and hope that future sales will soon outshine the initial outgoings.

This also sets me up nicely to start thinking what prints I want to take to my craft fair in December.

and soon there shall be something based on the idea of a house with a White Picard Fence.

Prints prints my Prince!

29 May

Just a short update for today and that is to tell you that I have finally gotten round to updating a few things and now offering some prints for sale with more to be added in time. Colourful prints, fun prints, print prints, all the things printed and ready to find a new home with a new person. 

No lengthy forms to fill out proving you are capable of caring for a print, of offering it shelter and a safe home (but I wish the best for them all the same as they go off into the big wide world). 

So go ahead, grab a glass of whiskey and a comfortable seat whilst you have a look at what is currently available. Can I offer you an ice cube?

Also here is Ryan Gosling cross hatch, Dat face!

Avengers Assemble!

31 Mar

We have had some good years now of Superhero based films and whilst I started out not really caring about them I have grown closer to them and now appreciate their individual special attributes and personalities and have learnt to love them.

I got to see the new Captain America film on Friday on a well timed day off work so had the cinema to ourselves at lunch time and really got to enjoy the big screen feeling without all those other people ruining it with phones and popcorn and whispering (and no-one could judge us for doing the same). 

I went home and got to drawing creating a mash up I really enjoyed doing! Toothless, meet the Avengers, Avengers, Assemble!

It is also amazing how much better about something you can feel when something you love and have put time into makes others happy and I have reached my highest notes on tumblr for this one still a puny 40 but more than 1! I will take that as a win!

Original A3 available for sale.
