Day 11- Ready for new homes!

I am listing the Yibbles as I type here, they are ready now to go to their new homes. I have been having trouble last night and today loading my images onto Etsy, but it seems to be working now. Head over to the shop and see what you think.

I have decided to give half the money raised from selling the Yibbles to Yorkhill Children's Hospital in Glasgow. As most of you know I have been working on the ideas for the Yibbles with my little cousin Della, who was the inspiration for them at the very beginning. In February this year she had extensive surgery on her leg to lengthen her tibia, and I wanted to creat some characters and write little stories for her while she is off school. So in honour of her strength, love and wonderful spirit I would like to donate some money to the hospital where she had her op and goes now for physio.
Have a wonderful weekend x

Oh Laura they all look wonderful! I think little Becka may be my favourite. What a wonderful cause as well, I'm sure Della is very proud to be the inspiration for such amazing little creatures!
