So today was the first day of the convention part of Thought Bubble Sequential Art Festival in Leeds, and it was my first time having a stall there! I’ve been to Thought Bubble before and always wanted to have a pitch, but this is the first year I’ve had the time/funds to do it.
I’m so glad I did! I’ve had a brilliant time! It had a fantastic vibe to it. I met some really wonderful people, saw some very impressive cosplay (the guy with dressed as Jake with BMO with a DIGITAL FACE was amazing) and just generally had a great laugh. Such a nice crowd and so many friendly exhibitors! Plus I was next to my fabulous friend Will who’s an editor for new published Borderline Press and has recently brought out Zombre: a compilation of 20 different wonderfully unique tales of the undead.
Really looking forward to tomorrow! If you happen to be coming along, I’m in the Allied London Hall on table 33, and I would love to chat to you! I’m also looking forward to having a good wander round tomorrow, I didn’t get much of a chance to today. But during my brief wanders I’ve been eyeing up some things to buy, like a wonderful patch from Lizz Lunney, Katie Green's new graphic novel and some bits from Gemma Correll. (and I'm sure much more.)

Some of you may know that I have a house bunny, Sir Anthony Hopkins. He’s amazing, but also a little devil! Many crafters may know the drama of having many handmade things and a pet set on DESTROYING EVERYTHING. So, I made a load of patches, cards and things inspired by this! On etsy here!
How to make these gorgeous vases with jars, bottles, spray paint and polymer clay!
Organising all of the patches I’ve done over the last week or so, oh god. There’s so many. Too many! Each pile is about 10-20 high =/ This isn’t even all of them! OH GOD TOO MANY PATCHES.
Now I need to get them all photographed and up on Etsy. I have given myself a job and a half.
They’ll be up here…one day…
So I recently became Mistress of the Crafts for my local W.I. (for anyone outside the UK/who doesn’t know, the W.I./ Women’s Institute is a UK organisation that has a reputation for being made up of older conservative women who make jam, cakes and sing jerusalem a lot. Recently the W.I. has had a lot of new groups spring up and has had a bit of a regeneration. My local W.I. the Huddersfield Tea and Tarts is one of the new hip W.I. groups that does stuff like welding, making feminist zines, has lots of meet ups involving pubs and learns burlesque dancing, and it’s totally badass.) and one of my duties is running monthly W.I. Sew Crafty craft workshops. Today’s was November Night Lights and we made these lovely things inspired by Fellow Fellows post! To see how to make these click here!
