A new Woodland Friend!

The Woodland Friends have a new friend.
He's a vegetarian fox called Ralph Not Ralph (only a teeny tiny percentage will understand that haha!) and he was named by Abby who commissioned this sketch.
He gets plenty of protein, don't you worry. It's a good job or he'd be eating the other friends!
This is called "Making Friends (not eating them)"

Bunny and the Beast

 "Um, why am I the Beast, Bunny?"
"Shut up and dance, I am rocking this dress!"

Okaaaay I made it into a little aceo print. I'm giving them away free at the mo with any order posted from PPHQ aka my house but PPHQ sounds posher.
Check the item description to see if it's eligible, but literally buy a washi tape or a card or something diddy and one will wing it's way to you.
I do this all the time btw, the image changes every week or two. Loads of people collect them and this is officially the 100th design! Woot!

FBH's New Year's Resolution...

"Finn, what are you doing?" asked Bunny quizzically.
"I'm keeping up my New Year's resolution! Look, I've got this banana, which is healthy, right?" 
"Yeah, fruit is good for you, you really should eat more of it and cut back on the cakes, for your health..." Bunny was still unsure if Finn really understood.
"And I've started a new exercise too! Look!"
Finn struggled with jumping and pulling his chubby body up onto... something... what was that thing that he was climbing up?
He was breathless trying to clamber up this mystery object. Bunny walked closer. 
In front of him was a large jar of 'Notella' chocolate spread with a rotund hedgehog hanging off the side, dunking slices of banana in and scooping up chocolate like chips in dip.
"Um, I don't think this is what they meant by 'eat more fruit and get some exercise'..."

Bedtime story with Panda!

Sorry it's a bit late coming to the blog, but here's a little bedtime story that I read live on Facebook just before Christmas.
It's a little story called 'Finn Biddybum's Cake' - you may have heard of it?
Also the camera cut out halfway through so it's in two parts, sorry!!

It's a Wonderful Life...

It's getting closer day by day and soon it'll all be over. No more running around, no more last minute making or post runs or running out of sticky tape/mince pies/lemonade.
This year has been different for me compared to the others. It might be my age but I'm seeing more stress, panic, upset and falling outs in the run up to Christmas. People's emotions are running high and with the aim of perfection I'm not surprised that you can almost see the stress pouring out of chimneys countrywide.
It doesn't have to be perfect.
If you didn't manage to get THAT present. If you only have the crappy wrapping paper left and you wanted to make their gift 'the special one', if you didn't send out your cards on time, if you haven't learned how to cook to perfect roasties, oh no, we forgot the batteries! doesn't really matter. None of it does. This time next week it'll all be over. We'll all be a little fatter, our cupboards will be fuller and the charity shops will be richer as we trundle our wheelbarrows along with Great Aunt Mildred's latest life sized knitted clown, filling it to the brim in the hopes the Cats Protection will be able to make a quid from it and that you won't have to find somewhere to put it.
(Great Aunt Mildred almost had a heart attack trying to make it on time, mind....)
What does matter? 
Time off. Winding down. Watching Christmas films with the family. Not spending so much money that you won't be able to eat until March. Ringing and visiting people who are having a worse Christmas than you. Being kinder, saying hello to your neighbours, taking donations to the local shelters or maybe even walking the dogs there. Taking time to reflect, to recharge, to reconnect. Having one too many and going on a rambling conversation until 3am by the lights of the tree. Writing letters to people. Spreading holly over the mantle.
Loving each other?
Yes, loving each other. You don't need money or batteries for that.
I'm way behind on my orders, my wrapping, my housework ready for 'the big day' but you know what? I'm off to watch 'It's a Wonderful Life', because it IS, and you only get one.
