how many...
...bloody fish? i have counted them and there are seventy six regular fish and only eighteen robot fish. these are some stickers i have been making since about six pm Wednesday evening. i am making them in the hope that i get some confidence to stick them somewhere on Saturday night as i am going to a graffiti event. people have questioned my sanity and have asked 'why haven't you just painted a couple, scanned them in and then printed a batch of them out?' well i had two plans, the printer method and the crazy method. i checked the price for printer label paper the other day in partners and i found out that it is not cheap. ok so its not breaking the bank either but i wanted a more traditional method of creating them so i thought it was time to put the crazy method into action and here we are nearing the final stages! all they need now are eyes and smiles that i might just do at the event with a Biro. aye i like a good old Biro pen. they might be wearing frowns then anyway. who knows what mood they will be in on Saturday night? plan for tomorrow is to paint a couple more robot fish and some speech bubbles similar to the ones i did on the mailmeart box. i am thinking i might leave some blank so people can write in them. also am going to tackle the blog banner and the etsy banner. two birds with one stone kinda thing.
a little note to all the Biro haters out there. the spellchecker wanted to give them a capital B so they must be important and worshipped. a Biro is a doodler's best friend and so is a mechanical pencil.

Thats really exciting, I hope you stick them somewhere good, will they be all together, or randomly dotted about?

I really like the bottom photo here, are they on a glass table? cos the shadows underneath look good. Would be great to see them stuck on a few layers of glass, one sheet behind the other, so you could see them behind each other as well as the shadows, make it look like a 3D shoal of fish. Sorry, blabbering on here, I will shut up now!

Hello Ladysnail.
After sitting poised like a cat for several minutes, I finally bagged a treasury on Etsy. With the exception of one item, I have filled it with some of my fav UK softie crafters. Your robot toys are in of course! Penny mentioned on her blog that you had a shop. (In your hearted list, I am one of your secret admirers!! ha ha!)

Please take a peek! Plushie power!
