Batman Saves The Day

Good morning everyone!  There was almost no blog this morning as just 20 minutes ago I was sat here, near tears, because after 50 minutes of failed ideas I still didn't have a blog theme...  But then Batman swooped into my mind and saved the day.  Hurray!  I think I need to start keeping a blog ideas diary or something to avoid these beyond last minute theme panics in the future.  And if anyone else has ideas for blog themes let me know by email (jenna@buyhandmadebritish.co.uk), twitter (@cutekidsclocks), facebook or comment below.  All ideas gratefully received, but please don't be offended if they don't make it into the blog - I've had to ditch a lot of ideas over the last few months because there aren't enough British sellers and/or the items are too similar.  Not that I have that problem today, there's always really good variety in superhero blogs. And the Joker only appears in amigurumi form because Heath Ledger's performance in The Dark Knight still terrifies me, so I'm not putting him in a pre-breakfast blog!
