My next market attendance
to be announced

It looks like I might be back doing my toy making hobby soon. I have been able to set up a small work shop at my new house in the Lifestyle Village in Bittern Victoria. Just a few more things to do and then I can transport my machinery from the storage unit. The amount of time that I can spend making toys will depend on the tolerance of my close neighbour and the amount of noise I produce. I suspect that their will be some kerfew put on me by the village management, but that's OK as they have a workshop here and I can wheel my noisier machines over there to use them and do the quieter processes at home. There are also heaps of other things that I want to do here at the village, so all of my time won't be spent making toys.

Toy making came about when I was entertaining children at birthday parties as "Lofty" the clown. I would make toys and give them to the birthday child as my present to them. The toys all took the shape of a clown or were painted in my clown colours, red, yellow and blue. now, my toys take all shapes and sizes, cars, trucks, boats, aeroplanes, games, puzzles, construction toys, dinosaurs, and just about anything that I want to put my hand to. The variety is infinite, But it brings joy to me as i make them and joy to the child that receives it.
