So folks, November is here and you know what that means. Charitable menfolk of the world are growing facial hair to raise money to fight prostate cancer. Hooray! If you want to know more, check out the website here:

And if you want to show your allegiance but are struggling a wee bit, there's always Wife of Brian. For the whole of November I will be donating 2% of my sales to the charity.

While you're here, I thought you might like to see a couple of new creations. An iphone cozy, and The Groucho:

The Groucho has already made it to the front page of etsy:

Good times indeed in moustache-land.

Get in touch if you want some knitted Movember love.

Summer Madness

So Summer is here (apparently) and the nation seems to be going mad with the joys of the World Cup. I was sat on the tube last night opposite a couple having a serious conversation, all the while the girl was wearing a giant inflatable England flag hand. Kept me entertained for quite a while.

Anyway, I was watching the news the other day and they had a report about "why we buy so much England tat," which prompted me to think 'why have I not made any England tat?' And so here is my contribution:

I was meant to be having a beardy stall at a festival called Sellindge Music Festival in Kent last weekend. I was looking forward to it very much - I think the beards would go down very well with the festival folk - and I've got my mini stall set up in my living room. Sadly the festival got cancelled at the last minute and I'm really gutted (as I expect everyone was). So if anyone's looking for an interesting stall for a festival, do let me know!

And finally, an update on those press articles. They came through, and they look great. Have a look:

Beardy beardy joy. See you soon peeps xx

Festive Silliness and Press Treats

Festive Silliness: Here were my beardy contributions to the world for the Saint Days of Valentine and Patrick. The card proved to be quite popular, and the greenie beard was actually a custom order. I think I may start a range of brightly coloured beards. Yellow next, I think.

As for the Press Treats: There's been a bit of chat about me on the internet of late, which has been nice. It started with being on the etsy front page, twice in two days - both with the same item!
That led to a lot of custom orders and lovely emails, hurrah.

It also led to a lovely article on the live. make. create. website:
Which included such sweet quotes as: "All of her designs are clever and very beautifully crafted". Thanks!

There was also a mention on the Jezebel blog.
My favourite comment from here was: "I just checked out this woman's website. I really, really want her to be my friend". Yay!

And then... This blog got picked up by Glamour Magazine who wrote about my "ridiculousness" on their website. Tee hee.
How very exciting.

The beardy article that my interview contributed to in Melbourne Magazine has now been published, and the lovely Ian Rose who wrote it is sending me a copy. I'm really looking forward to reading that.

I'm yet to hear whether my moustache gloves have made an appearance in Bust Magazine. I don't have access to a copy over here, so if anyone's seen one, it would be great to know if I made the cut.

Right, that's all my pressy treats for now.

Merry Mother's Day everyone x

Time for an update, methinks...

Hi gang,

I'm sorry I've been away for a while. Busy busy busy with my real job in the real world. Boo hiss.

There's not a great deal going on, so here are some pictorial updates:

These two are pics from a couple of satisfied customers. Always nice to get some positive feedback!

These are pictures of my wares on sale. On the left is Bento in Pennsylvania, and on the right is the Tea & Make Christmas Fair in Honor Oak. Yay!

And these are a couple of new things in my shops. Moustache-tastic.

Ooh, and in other news I'm hopefully going to be appearing in a couple of magazines over the next few months. One is Bust Magazine in New York who requested a pair of my gloves, and the other is Melbourne Magazine who are doing a special about beards. Hopefully more on those later.

Lots of beardy love xx
