I am whale crazy, this is pure insanity! Although they are super cute :)

Finally added the tusk, and made another whale in beige, so now i have 2!

My little blue whale had made it into my shop!

I am currently creating an army of multi coloured whales (i clearly have no life!)

See below and link to my shop :)
Please check out My Ebay Shop
I FINALLY decided to get my act together and make the whale i have always wanted to make!
He was originally going to be a Narwhal, but i decided to stick with him just being a whale for now. I may add the tusk later on ;)
Photo 1, proves I'm human and have an extremely messy table! 

Here's a better photo :) I took these photos with the Hipstamatic app on my iPhone. The true colour of the whale is a royal blue in 8 ply yarn.
This post is going to be dedicated to the fellow craft-lovers currently residing in the Etsy world :)

I think its hugely important for Etsy shop owners to be featured in blog posts & other sites to gain exposure. Afterall, Etsy is no Ebay! But, it is growing fast and sometimes it can be hard to find the little fish in the sea!
I have been featured quite a few times in other blogs and have decided to return the favour, i know the benefits of exposure and even if you don't get many sales, having a name for yourself is just as exciting.

I have tried to organise the shops below into categories, so hopefully it will make browsing easier :)
Show some love for the Etsy Folk!
