And sometimes we can be only too keen to search for the downsides. So: yes, RIGHT NOW there are FREE CALENDARS at our online MUSTARDSHOP. You still have to pay the postage and packing, but all those high quality full colour images are yours for the taking. You could wallpaper the WC with them even, for that price! Teachers, why not do a project with them at school? Or frame them up and give...

One Fine Weekend

Hello you lovely people! Well it's officially December so I can no longer grumble on about Christmas carols in all the shops and the Christmas trees that have been up since Halloween. It's time for ToftieHumbug to get on board with the Christmas Spirit! Today I have been down at the studio decorating my stripy Christmas tree. This evening I will be making felt hats of my Mustard jig doll Christmas display. And yes, I will be looking round for Christmas records to play at my Open Studio weekend 5th and 6th December, 12-6pm daily at Brown Dog Studio, 12...

One Man and His Dog

Dear Friends, I can't believe it. I am almost there. Almost almost almost, but not quite... It's been a year to the day since I started working on my dream project, and now it's just about to go to press... I'M GOING TO MAKE A BOOK!!! We are taking preorders right now, which is WIERD because it only exists in the stars. But we have pre sold over 200. And there will only be 1000 in the whole world. I have been working with an excellent editor, designer and printer. This book will be the very best I can make...

Have a great December and the rest of it...

Dear Friends,I must confess to feeling I have been neglecting you.First, radio silence. Second, no Open Studio. And then third, no competitions and general Facebook merriment.Well today I hope we remedied that.Dear Mr Cain came along to my unchristmassy studio and made some videos to let you know that you have not been forgotten or overlooked. Neither have I been lazy. I've had one of the hardest years in a long time. One is there now on my Youtube channel, and the other two will be ready for you to see next weekend. For most of the year I have...
