Busy Busy Me!

Apologies to anyonewho came looking for my handmade monday post yesterday.  I was out all day with family.  I had planned to get a post done on Sunday night and then publish it before I went out on Monday morning but I was busy putting the finishing touches to a flock of sheep and puffin for the The Old Haa.  Finally got all my sheep and puffins (clocks, bookmarks and keyrings) finshed and packed up this morning so they're on their way to Shetland now.  They're going to be sold in the gift shop and I'm very excited to see how they sell because it's the first time my clocks have been sold in a shop and the first time my bookmarks and keyrings have been sold anywhere other than the internet.  Exciting times :-)

If you've been reading my blog over the last couple of weeks you'll know Mick from Shpangle won my prize draw.  He blogged about the bookmark he won and you can read about it here.  It's a bit surreal seeing my work in someone else's blog but in a really nice way.

As I'm having a 4 day blogging week there's no Tutorial Tuesday today but don't worry, it'll be back next week.  Today I thought I'd search for "busy" on Etsy and see what it threw out.  Here's the results:
