365 / 173 - Teacups and the Internet

Last night we watched "Spy Game" (rubbish!) and I finished my batch of pink teacup pins. Here they all are, in a pink teacup (I'm really thinking outside the box today! haha) ...
Naturally, I had to go make a cup of tea after taking those pictures! Continuing with the tea theme, check out this adorable card in Kate Wilson's shop:
Only $8 for so much cuteness! How could you resist it? Also, Heidi Burton's lovely cards (including her "you're just my cup of tea" card) have a new home: Making Strangers; and did you know that you can buy a teatowel with the ever-relevant slogan "Keep Calm and Carry On"? I am starting to build up a collection of stylish teatowels to replace my fraying old ones so am rather tempted by a Keep Calm one, but I feel it might look rather naff to have a teatowel that matches a poster on our kitchen wall...

In other news, I have been blogged while I was away... My Library Project zine got a mention here, a fellow Etsian sweetly picked me as one of "three artists the world should know about (but doesn't) in this interview, and my cherry blossom pin provided some inspiration for a crafter trying out felt for the first time. My shop and my "trailblazing moustaches" also got mentioned over in Etsy's Storque in a little feature they did on the "mini trend" of felt goatees...
Funny how you can make something and think you're going out on some weird limb (I was absolutely convinced I was going to have to give my initial batch of moustaches away to unamused relations because they'd never sell) then they become popular and start turning up everywhere! You type "mustache" into Etsy's search nowadays and the results are huge, and there seem to be quite a few moustache disguises around too... My own moustaches now have their very own section in my shop and will soon be joined by beards, glasses and an assortment of other useful disguises - I've even secured a model for them all, I don't think he really knows what he's letting himself in for, but he owes me a favour, hehe...

You are the master of felt!
Also, that teacup picture would make a very cool print, methinks :)

I know I'm a little (read: a lot)late to the party, but I just have to say I love your pink teacups! And generally I love all your little felty creations, they are so pretty and so imaginative. You may well be getting an order from me soon ... =D
