Penguin post

Happy Handmade Monday!
The good news is that the sea stayed behind the wall last week-end and we slept safely. The weather has made it very soggy and muddy around here, but life has continued it's weekly round of school, dancing, guides and very little crafting for me. I am busy trying to do my tax return ready for the end of the month and any helpful advice would be very much appreciated!

I have redesigned the penguin key rings with Valentines and Mothering Sunday in mind, and the jammy dodger key rings are one of Folksy's Valentine gifts which is boost! I've got lots of ideas simmering away, and I'm having to keep them firmly at the back of my mind for now!
One thing I am struggling on is a 21st Birthday gift for my nephew - he's not likely to drive and an alcoholic theme isn't really appropriate either so again, any suggestions would be very welcome!

I saw your jammie dodger key rings in the folksy post! Well done! For your nephew - what about sport or music related gifts?

Awww i love your little penguins, they're adorable :) Great to hear that your jammy dodger keyrings are getting the recognition they deserve, they are fantastic!

What about something commemorative for your nephew, like a mug.. or a special book - first edition/signed? Good luck! x

Such cute penguins. Glad the water stayed far enough away! Here's hoping it dries up soon.

My first thought was also music. Although I guess it depends what he is interested in. I find my own son almost impossible to shop for.

The penguins are so cute.

Sadly I can't offer any help with the tax return, however as for your nephew, what about something to do with technology - say mobile phone, laptop, MP3 player. What about something to do with Dr Who as most men are into that.

Good luck with whatever you decide. xx
