So I have finally done it, designed, printed and made my first series of paper toys ready for Christmas! Phew! Been working on them over about 3 weeks!

I hope you like! I plan to post the nets up on my website when I work out how to do that, will try to find out later.

So here they are for your viewing pleasure, I give you Mr and Mrs Claus, Steve the elf, Barry the bear, Charles the penguin, Fred the Snowman, Rudolph and Blitzen. (Steve and Barry are my personal favourites)

Things are about to get interesting!

Ok. I admit this is all looking a bit boring at the moment! I will fix that, but to be honest I'm a little confused by all the options and editing options. Will take me a little while to work it all out, but hopefully very soon there will be some pretty pictures for you to feast your eyes on.

Have been making up the paper toys, its showing me the mistakes I've made, which is good as it means I can correct them before I post the nets up for you guys. It will be soon!

Entering the world of the blogger!

So this is my first proper blog. I feel like I am slowly beginning to live more of my life in a virtual world!

Well this time yesterday I was stood in Birmingham's NIA waiting for Muse to emerge! Sitting on my sofa now designing paper toys, while fun, is not quite on the same level! They were fantastic. The only downside was that we ended up standing near a group of stoners one of whom may or may not have peed on the floor! Also the support act was 'the big pink' whose most famous song is called 'Dominoes' and this group thought it would be hilarious to sing 'Dominoes, dominoes!' after every single song that Muse did, and in any silences! We managed to restrain ourselves from smacking them in the face, though I did accidently get my own back, by jumping up and down on one of the guys feet! ( I promise it was an accident)

So back to designing my first range of paper toys. They have a Christmas theme and I'm planning to make one up for all my friends and family. Will post them up in various places when they are done.
