Now you can follow Toadstool Hollow on Twitter

I have just made a twitter account for Toadstool Hollow :) If you would like to follow me on twitter you can use the link below;


I'm also thinking about opening a Toadstool Hollow shop on Folksy is like, except it's a British website, so everything is listed in £'s. It isn't as big as etsy yet, but that also means your items are less likely to get lost 5 minutes after you list them...
It would be nice to be able to sell in £'s and on a smaller site.

Yay 10 sales :)

hehe. Reached my first sales target! Just reached 10 sales :) My next target is 15! Not quite as high as my other shop, but we all have to start somewhere!

Remembrance Day

Today is Remembrance Day, and even though I was just at home I sat for the 2 minute silence at 11am and remembered those who gave their lives for our freedom. I thought about all those who haven't made it home.
I think 2 minutes of your time every year is really not alot to give. I really do not understand workplaces that do not uphold this tradition. This is my favourite WWI poem;

The War Sonnets: V. The Soldier
If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
A dust whom England bore, shaped, made aware,
Gave, once, her flowers to love, her ways to roam,
A body of England's, breathing English air,
Washed by the rivers, blest by suns of home.

And think, this heart, all evil shed away,
A pulse in the eternal mind, no less
Gives somewhere back the thoughts by England given;
Her sights and sounds; dreams happy as her day;
And laughter, learnt of friends; and gentleness,
In hearts at peace, under an English heaven.

- Rupert Brooke

Faerie Radio

I found this via Brain Froud's website and thought it might be of interest :) (just click the link below) Sometimes I feel like I could just sit online all day and just find so much cool stuff :) Especially because I don't really know anyone who is in to this kind of stuff, it can feel a bit isolated sometimes.

Can't believe it's November already!

I hope you all had a great Halloween? :) I can't believe it's November! This year feels like it's just flown by for me, I kind of hoped I would have accomplished a lot more by the end of this year. Guess I need to make this month and next month matter don't i?!

I've been planning some faerie paintings and sketches to sell. Trying to decide whether to just sell originals or do prints as well? Of course once they're finished I'll be sure to put them up for you to see!
