This is the tea party diorama that I've made for UK Web & Mini Comix Thing which is occuring soon (27th March). There are more pictures of it from various angles in a Flickr set here. Hopefully I can get it to the convention and onto my table without damaging it too much. Should be okay. Paper and card typically don't shatter when dropped.
Which is more than I can say for this...
No not Carl, you can't shatter him. No I'm talking about the My Cardboard Life mug. This is just the prototype. When I've got the finished articles I'll make them available to buy. I might also be bringing them to the UK Thing!
Could it be a worthy receptacle for your favourite hot drink (or cold drink if you're a bit of an oddball)?
Oh and here's yet another thing for the Thing. My stickers for the DINO-SAW-US challenge, which involves collecting stickers from different exhibitors. Also my special "APPROVED FOR FRIENDSHIP" stamp, for stamping dino-saw-us passports, or anything else I want to approve (for friendship). If you've received anything from me in the post lately you may recognise that stamp. I approved you for friendship, we're best friends now. FOR LIFE!

Doodle that I did whilst I was watching Neighbours and thinking about how don't enjoy peeling oranges very much. This is the solution (to the oranges. There is no solution to Neighbours. Neighbours is a soap opera and therefore never ends). It doesn't work. Where do you even put the orange? I think I'll just stick to satsumas.

Some new crochet animals. Not quite sure what the light pink thing is. Maybe a cat.
This was supposed to be a frog, but once I'd added the button eyes it looked more like some kind of snake's head. We are not friends. He's an eyesore and I hate him.

Here's some drawings of Cardboard Carl from my sketchbook. Also a preliminary Carl who had a knitted beard. I didn't knit it myself, I cut it out of a scarf. The final beard was cut out of an old vest. Recycling you see, it's good for the environment. Did I wash the vest? No I did not.
If you've not seen Cardboard Carl in action yet here he is.
