Wouldn't be right without a few bad guys.. though don't think they were always on the wrong side? Anyway this little egg carton stormtrooper is the latest addition to our Star Wars gang! Making instruction on the blog now.

Turn a lovely leaf into a beastly bat with one simple snip! Swipe left to see how. Then glue on paper eyes and fangs 🦇They make great decorations for a Halloween party! 🎃

Such a satisfying time of year to potter along the hedgerows. So much to find! I had a very rewarding ramble in warm sunshine and came home with a big bagful. I'd wanted to collect an assortment of coloured leaves for collaging. Really miss the old telephone directories which were brilliant for pressing leaves! Gathered up quite a few acorn cups just because there's something so tootsie tiny and perfect about them. Picked the last few blackberries - don't think they've been that great around here this year, but enough for a small amount of blackberry and apple, and we're certainly not short of apples! Found a good hoard of sloe berries too. Always remind me of Dad who was a master sloe gin maker. A bottle usually made an appearance at the end of a meal at his, and became a kind of initiation test for unsuspecting boyfriends..
Miss Dad and his lethal sloe gin.

More wacky-doodle adventures for Brian (the lion) and his blue beardy friends!
Finished the photo shoot for the story book yesterday which was a huge relief as didn't think we'd get everything done. All those weeks of madly making paid off and think the kids are going to be pretty happy that the kitchen is now clear of cardboard clutter!

The problem with running a craft workshop is I never seem to get a minute to take a picture of the kids crafting.. and there was lots of making going on! M&S was crazy busy - 50% Sale probably helped, and Bath just always seems to be crazy busy, especially at the weekend. Quite a few of the families I talked to had been to other Festival events. There's a packed programme this year and really worth a look if you're near Bath.

Free Drop-in workshop in Bath tomorrow!! That's sort of crept up on me! I'm there for the wonderful Bath Kids' Literature Festival and I'd love to see you. Come make your own Brian the Lion or some of the other animals from Make Your Own Zoo or Make Your Own Farm Animals. I'll be in Marks & Spencer's in the centre of town from 11 till 3.

Every good Space adventure story needs a dragon right...? This one is just waiting in the wings for his scene. He's 100% egg carton. Lots of lovely dragony shapes in an egg carton!

Keeping my head down at the moment as the deadline for the next book approaches. I'm making scenes to illustrate the story and I've loved coming up with new things to make and sneaking in random creatures or plants to hopefully make the pictures more interesting. Remember how much fun it was exploring book illustrations with my kids when they were little. The zebra and the giraffe are not in the new book, they're from 'Make your own zoo' - this set-up was for a little video. There are making instruction for both of them on the blog though (link @jumbletree) I'll show you how I'm getting on with the space scenes when I start putting all the pieces together!

Pinky purple space rocks for the book I'm working on - just not 100% sure whether to add glitter...

Hear that?....the rather lovely sound of silence... No being asked for food every five minutes, no tedious fighting - just me and my little blue beardy gnomes! I've got more done today than I have for ages. They're for my new book about a lion who goes to space, and I'm using characters and scenery from the craft books to illustrate the story. Really pleased so far, just hope kids will like it too!
