I’d like to apologise for the lack of updates and new content on this blog. I started a new job recently which while super creative, doesn’t feed into my personal work. It’s given me a lot of experience and new responsibilities, and much of it has been a learning curve into disciplines I’ve never imagined myself doing before (like building giant wasp puppets).
However Inkling’s Things isn’t going anywhere! I owe you all and myself more commitment to my jewellery making and illustration, and as I move into September I’m going to be updating much more. I have a lot of projects I want to work on and will have a bit more time once the school holidays have settled in.
Thank you all for being so patient! ♥
Hello Tumblr (& Twitter) friends!
I normally don’t ask for help, but times are getting tough.
My rent has been increased a significant amount; to the point of wiping out my food budget. Which means I’m going to have to try to get more hours at work as well as try to fit in more hours at my side job.
On top of that, my mother’s sewing machine broke a few weeks back (it’s from the 60’s & too old to repair), which means I’ve had to put all larger sewing commissions on hold (I’d like to take a second here & give a shout out to theelderzeppelin for being so patient with his commission! THANKS FRIEND!!)
I had been planning on buying her a new machine, but now with the rent increase, I definitely can’t afford it.
This is point where I ask for help…
I’m not asking for donations or free money; I’m just asking that people take a minute & check out my Etsy shop.
Any sale there will help. I’m also open to small, hand-sewn commissions. Please feel free to message me here (or through Etsy) with any questions or requests.
You can see a selection of my sewn goods in my blog.
I also make other assorted crafts, a larger selection can be seen in my Handmade Crap gallery on DeviantArt.
I know money is tight for most of us these days, so if you can’t afford to purchase anything I completely understand. But if everyone could please do me the favor of signal boosting this entry, it would mean so much to me!!
Re-blogging & sharing the link to my Etsy shop would be very much appreciated!! I don’t have a Facebook page, but I would appreciate you guys spreading the word there too. Anything to help.
A million thanks to everyone who took the time to read this entire entry & a million more thanks to anyone who signal boosts!!
Please spread the word! Also look at the adorable things precioushamburgers can make! ♥

Sweet little dog pendant for a personalised gift.
Apologies for the lack of updates this past week. I have a new job doing art workshops, which is really varied and challenging and I’m enjoying it a lot!
I’m in the process of setting up a Storenvy for prints and greetings cards and other more mysterious things (if any sellers or shoppers have feedback about your experiences using the site, I’d love to hear your thoughts).
In the meantime please accept this tiny Hulk battling with cans as a symbol of hope and mild frustration.
Winner of the redraw is thunda-whalez! Well done!
Just a reminder, there’ll be a redraw for all entries of my most recent giveaway tonight!
I’ll be drawing the new winner’s url at midnight BST. Best of luck to you. ♥
I’ve been trying to get in contact with the giveaway winner but it’s been a month and no luck so far!
So I will be holding a redraw on Tuesday (when I’ve recovered from building a giant crocodile and running it around a public park).
Apologies for any confusion, sometimes this sort of thing is unavoidable! Anyone who didn’t get a chance to enter but would like to win an animal, don’t worry. I’ll be holding another giveaway soon. ♥
