Look Around

Look Around

This has been a confusing week. I almost didn’t buy something at the supermarket today because the use by date was February 27th and in my brain that was already past. I guess when you’re constantly planning for events in the future it’s hard to remember where you are.

But! I have been working on new things and this week I ordered some new products featuring them. The range is called Look Around because every character is based on a circle! You’ve already met the pancake but there are loads more. I even did a little logo for them so you can have a sneak peek. There’s a food-themed badge set coming soon and the rest will be appearing on various things in the next few months. Yay, new stuff.

PS. Sale ends tomorrow! There’s not a lot left now.
