Penguin Pandemonium

Who out there likes penguins? 
They actually are very interesting animals.
Did you know emperor penguins can dive deeper than any other bird and can stay underwater for twenty minutes!
I'm writing this blog with my future brother-in-law in mind. See, I have to find DPip (nickname) something for his birthday. I'm not too sure what to get him. I find out that penguins are his favorite animal. 
Hiho hiho To I go!
I found so many cool handmade penguin items that I had to make a collection and share it with all of you.
Dpip if you read this no, your particular penguin is not in this collection....or is it?
