Adopt a Hedgehog?

Hi everyone, I am writing this post to see if anyone would be interested in adopting a Hedgehog?

What am I talking about you may wonder? Well lately I've been feeling crafty and we had some old books at work that were going to be thrown out, so I decided to see what could be made from them and I discovered the joy of Book Hedgehogs.

I made about a dozen of them and put them all round the library as decorations, and lots of people have commented on how cute they are and how much they would love to have one which got me to thinking.

If I was to make some Hedgehogs would anyone be interested in buying one. I would have to sell them as I would need to buy the old books from the booksale of old stock and then purchase sequins etc for eyes and noses and then the postage would cost as well. Not to mention the time it takes to make them- it's quite a lengthy process.

Maybe you want to see what they look like first? Well here you are:
Aren't they adorable?

So what do you think, would anyone be interested in owning one? A little mascot for your bookshelves or computer desk?

I have looked up prices of similar things online (book trees and book letterings etc) and they seem to sell for about £12-£15.
I so far haven't seen any other hedgehogs online and I would only be asking for £6 per Hedgehog.

Free postage within the UK and £3 postage to the US.
Other countries I would have to price individually for postage.

Each hedgehog would be made as standard but I would offer you the chance to pick nose and eye colour.
Size of hedgehog is average length of a paperback book. 

If you wanted one- payment would need to be made via paypal through the 'donate' button on the top right of my blog. Once the money was received your Hedgehog would be sent within 5 working days.

This is a hobby and just a way to raise a little bit of money, (mostly to fund my book buying) but I would also donate 10% of each sale to charity (Cancer Research)

Leave a comment below to let me know if you are interested.
