  1. I'm waving at you from a rather soggy part of the UK, and I hope you are all keeping safe, warm and dry if it's raining cats and dogs where you are. 

    I've been planning ahead for August, and so I thought you'd like a list of all the event dates coming up this month - it's going to be raining cats and kiwis! 

    3-4 August - Mini Lottery for Kiwis

    Pastel Kiwis 270719 (2)

     

    The first event is taking place this weekend - it's a 24 hour Mini Lottery just for Wee Kiwis! I've been having so much fun making them (as you can probably tell) - there will be about a dozen individual kiwis, and these six pastel kiwis will be available as a complete set - they're just too cute to split up ;) I'll add photos of them on the Lottery page as they hatch :) 

    For every Wee Kiwi adopted, I will donate 10% of the sale price to Kiwis for Kiwi, a wonderful charity based in New Zealand which helps to conserve these wonderful birds. The Wee Kiwis are £50 each plus shipping (the full set is £280 plus shipping).

    The Lottery starts at 9am BST on Saturday 3 August, and ends at 9am BST on Sunday 4 August. I will announce the winners shortly after the Lottery ends.

    8 August (8pm BST) - Mini Shop Event: Little Fatty Bat Cats

    Fatty Bat Cats 080818

    This first Mini Shop Event of August will take place on Thursday 8 August at 8pm BST in my online shop for  Little Fatty Bat Cats - it's been too long since I last made these cuties! There may even be a few Little Fatty Bat Mice if you're lucky.... Little Fatty Bat Cats are £38 each plus P&P. 

    15 August (8pm BST) - Mini Shop Event: Little Blossom Creatures

    Blossom Creatures 150819

    And  the following week, on Thursday 15 August at 8pm BST, there will be a Mini Shop Event for Little Blossom Creatures - there will be a range of guinea pigs, foxes, hedgehogs, skunks, moles, otters, owls and penguins, each holding their own lovely bouquet of sweetheart blossoms. Prices range from £40-£48 plus P&P. 

    19-20 August - Pre-order: Glass Moon Creatures

    Glass Moon1

    Paul of Phoenix Glass and I are once again being super organised, and we'll be taking orders for Glass Moon Creatures on 19-20 August. For more information about how to put your name down for one, click here

    24-25 August - Quernus Lottery #16

    Quernus Lottery #16 will start at 9am BST on Saturday 23 August and will end at 6pm on Sunday 24 August, with a small second-chance shop event taking place at 8pm that same evening. I'll post pictures of all the wee creatures who will be taking part nearer the time, so keep checking my Lottery page :) 

    And finally, for the first time in ages, there are now usually at least a few wee creatures in my online shop - it's a good idea to keep an eye on the In Stock category if you're in the market for a wee creature :)

    Playful Otters Sculpture June 20191

    First of all, I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who took part in the otter charity raffle at the end of June - in total, you raised the sum of £1,026, which is absolutely fantastic! And congratulations to the winners, Nichola Ingram and Jenny Malcolm :) 


    This money was donated to my husband's charity appeal to raise money for COBI, a charity dedicated to saving our oceans, by swimming around the isle of Jersey in a 3 man relay team. They did this on 5 July, swimming a total distance of 41 miles in 9 hours 42 minutes! The total amount raised so far has reached £3,000, and there's still time to contribute on his JustGiving page :)

    11 July at 8pm BST - Mini Shop Event: Little Blossom Mice

    Little Blossom Mice white 100719

    I'm holding a Mini Shop Event tomorrow (Thursday 11 July at 8pm BST) in my online shop for Little Blossom Mice - whilst Enrique was swimming around Jersey, I was hard at work creating dozens of tiny bouquets for the mice in a range of different colours! Here are some of the white mice I've made - there will also be grey, tan and brown mice to choose from :) They are £35 each plus P&P.

    18 July at 8pm BST - Mini Shop Event: Little Ice Cream Otters

    Ice Cream Otter 250119 (5)

     

    And  the following week, on Thursday 18 July at 8pm, there will be a Mini Shop Event for Little Ice Cream Otters! I've managed to order some more of these gorgeous miniature ice creams all the way from New Zealand - I first discovered them in Wellington when we were there last December on our honeymoon. The little otters will be licking a variety of flavours - chocolate, vanilla with flake, chocolate sprinkles and rainbow sprinkles - and they are £46 each plus P&P.

    And last but not least, Quernus Lottery #15 will start at 9am BST on Saturday 27 July and will end at 6pm on Sunday 28 July, with a small second-chance shop event taking place at 8pm that same evening. Keep checking my Lottery page to see which wee creatures will be taking part, but among others, you can expect some Blossom Skunks and Otters, Wee Kiwis (possibly of the rare pastel variety) and a few Little Harvest Mice!

    Busy days ahead - and that's just the way I like it!
