Here's one more Christmas card - this one is for the cat lovers out there! Also available in my Etsy shop.
Marvin the Cat just couldn't help himself, the milk and cookies were just begging to be eaten! In any case, he was positive he had heard rumours that Santa was lactose intolerant and doesn't like sugary treats.
There are two new Christmas cards available in my Etsy shop! We're still a little yak crazy in the Herbert house.
Patrick the Yak couldn't decide what to get you for Christmas so in the end he thought a poem would be best. It took him a long time to write, but he's pretty sure it's a winner!
Betty is quite well know for her artistic talent, so she feels the best Christmas present she could ever possibly give is a drawing made especially for you. And what an excellent drawing it turned out to be!
After much umming and arring about what to do yesterday, the critters decided they'd make some pom poms. They'd seen them around lately and reckon they look pretty awesome.
They found some yarn hidden away in a drawer and attempted to start their pom pom project. It was then they realised none of them actually knew how to make a pom pom. As luck would have it, Clifford the Giraffe had heard of a pom pom expert one of his friends had consulted when she found herself in almost exactly this situation. Clifford did some investigation and found the name and number for the pom pom expert - Patrick the Yak! They gave him a call and realising the severity of the situation, Patrick arrived promptly five minutes later.
First and foremost, Patrick collected everything they'd need for the pom pom project. The critters started questioning Patricks expertise when he insisted a cereal box was essential for pom pom making.
The critters soon realised the importance for the cereal box and had a new found respect for the pom pom expert.
He showed them how to wind the yard around the cereal box cut outs and everything started to come together.
They wound and wound and wound and wound, until they were all dizzy.
Then they cut and tied and pulled and knotted, now they could see the pom pom really taking shape.
Then Voilà! They were the proud new owners of some very stylish pom poms.
They were so excited about their first pom poms they continued to make many more.
As it happens, Patrick the Yak is a GIVEAWAY! To win this very talented pom pom expert here's what you have to do:

Kevin the Koala is very proud to share his first modelling venture with you, in the summer entertainment issue of Inside Out magazine!!! he's super excited! His exact words when he saw it in print for the first time were 'have you ever seen a more handsome koala'. Kevin hopes this is the start of a long and fruitful modelling career. He has asked that all booking and enquiries go through his agents at Herbert & Friends.
Thanks for having us Brisbane! Here are my picks for the market. There would've been more but I had very limited time away from my stall (you never know what the critters get up when they're left alone for too long).
First up is Harvest Haversack with these super awesome reusable fresh produce storage bags.
Next is Dark Horse, with their beautiful bold coloured jewellery.
And lastly we have Beau Wylie with his whimsical and humorous cards and illustrations.
