An Update...

 So as we suspected would happen, the Etsy and Folksy updates on the 29th are looking unlikely...we just have a bit too much to fit in...but don't fear there will be one soon!
I'll leave you with some pictures...nothing special just some bits and pieces from around the house (which is such a cold house i have resorted to taking hand sewing upstairs...because its warmer)
Some new Human Beans for M.A.D.E (the eagle eyed amongst you may notice that some of them have  the new tie addition)
New designs...involving more this space
A newly acquired succulent for the bed side table (following the demise of a much loved one)
And a pretty glass bottle with some Wax Flowers in.

Right...I'm off to see if I can get some feeling back into my cold fingers!

Grizzly Geoffs

So we're only a little bit late introducing you guys to these but....lets face it...if we were on time it would be weird.
This, ladies & gentlemen, is a Grizzly Geoff.
They're super dooper new to the StuffedNonsense studio and came about thanks to a rather quiet shift at the day job.
They have a 'loose' back story which we're currently fine tuning but the base of is...
'This is a Grizzly Geoff. He lives behinds your bins and only comes out when it's late; when he thinks the coast is clear he rustles around the bins looking for tasty scraps. He know's that eating from bins isn't the healthiest or most socially acceptable of habits but nonetheless he continues to do so.'
That's right...he's in his pants...Y Front pants to be precise.
He sports a rather handsome beard... similar to that of his name sake 'Geoff from Byker Grove' (I've just spent the last 15 minutes trying to find a suitable link so you can all wonder in the delight of Geoff's beard but can't find a suitable you will just have to take my word for it.)
He has a hand embroidered belly button and some hand embroidered chest hair.
And the beards come in a variety of shades...but for some reason my favourite is the one in the first 3 photos.

So...what do you think? we're quite taken with them, but then we both like beards.
Fingers crossed they will be up on the etsy and folksy shop by the 21st...but there is a Tax Return to try and squeeze in around that time too so we won't make any promises.
Your comments are, as always, appreciated!
