Personal Grumpus commission for Truus I seem to have wandered into the world of microblogging (as in Facebook, Twitter etc) and neglected my beloved weblog, whoops. There are lots of things that I need to do, like respond to comments on the last post, write my epic ode to five years of blogging and much more, but I don't want to miss what is happening in the here and now, so I am writing this post. I will probably do a reflective new year post and include the thoughts on five years of blogging then. Lots of other things to update on too, like how the new business is going (The Doodologist) and all the many things I have learnt so far about striking out on your own.After Christmas I will be in doodle prototype mode, where I will be putting together some new ideas, which will be fun! As they will be my own projects that also means that I can do a lot more blogging about them, as they progress, without the worry of spoiling surprises etc. So I am most excited about that, as I love getting feedback and bouncing ideas off as many people as possible.In the meantime I decided to do some quirky Christmas gift ideas, as my commission work always whizzes off to its new doodle forever home, I never have anything to sell when I go to little events or to sell online via facebook etc and I am always thinking of new ideas, so it is most cool to see some of them come to life.Behold... Magically Restorative Reindeer Power Why just give Rudolph and friends a lacklustre carrot or boring oats? Why not enhance your visiting magical reindeer's food, by adding some of this special magical powder on their snack of choice before you head to your beds on Christmas Eve. Price is ¬£3.50 for Magical powder, scroll and organza bag. Behold..... Magical Key Ever wondered how Father Christmas gets into your house when you gave no chimney or have a blazing fire? Wonder no more! With this magical key Father Christmas has no trouble at all!Each key is rather old and comes in various shapes and sizes, all can be classed as vintage (and some are antique). If you don't already have this tradition in your household, why not start now?Price is ¬£5 for Magical Key, scroll and organza bag.The instructions for how to use your Magic Key written on the image above, comes in a handy mini scroll format, please hang on your door knob of choice. It is probably a good idea to let the children decide, as they know best. These instructions will be supplied in mini scroll form and will accompany your magic key in a lovely organza bag.Price is ¬£5 for Magical Key, scroll and organza bag.Hopefully I will have some time again to blog before Christmas, but if not, Happy Grumpus to you all.
