My animal eye supply is in need of replenishment. When you are doing four foxes at a time, that's eight eyes at the same time! So, I'm investigating Etsy sources, as there appears to be a wider colour chart available than from my normal internet suppliers - starting with the source MrsKN used for the Gold and Blue eyes for Nick and Agatha Buchanan Wolf (see the post on 16/02/2014 ). I confirmed yesterday that she does ship to the UK, and that the heavier the package is, the cheaper the shipping cost! Sounds an interesting idea!
Just so the Foxes don't feel left out - here are rear views of the two pairs of slippers! All have little bushy tails, some of which are visible in this picture. One pair have my usual plastic eyes, and the other pair is supplied with brown glass eyes, which I just happened to have had in stock - waiting for a suitable toy to be fitted with them. (There were only two left in the brown plastic variety!) Colourwise, there is very little difference, but the glass ones are sewn in, while the plastic ones have the usual metal safety washer.
Finally, all my Followers are very observant people, and will no doubt have noticed the addition of two buttons to this Blog. The one appearing in the right side-bar is the blog button, and the one at the bottom of each post have both been provided thanks to the good offices of Angelique Ouellette-Tower of http://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ . I've been participating in many blog hops arranged by her and her team for several months, and recently took ad space on her blog. This required the creation of buttons, which I had not got the foggiest idea how to do! Angelique obliged - and patiently "held my hand" (over several attempts) before they appeared when/where they were supposed to! While, so far, sales do not appear to have been affected, the number of views for the Blog have increased to the point that we are now at 22,300+ when we were only scraping the 21,000 mark at the beginning of the year. Thanks so much everyone for being such great Followers, and to Angelique for her superb help.
The button for the Clinic appears automatically on the blog when I begin to create every post. (It proceeds majestically down the page as I type. The side-bar one seems to be a permanent feature. Now, I've got to see how to properly capitalise on these new features - because, as ever, I've gone in for them without actually understanding what they are all about!! (I think they are designed to make it easier for Followers and other Visitors to the Blog to reach it!) One lives (dangerously at times I freely admit) and one LEARNS. Which is really what LIFE itself is all about isn't it?
Until next time - Good night and God bless - from Cy Bear and Me! (Isobel)
