Making "actors" from scrap material for our stop-motion film this afternoon. #dedepuppets #stopmotion #estuaryartcentre #workshop

The Dedes were flat out working today. Even Junior had to chip in, as only the Travel-Dedes have moved into the new house so far. The others, who haven't gone to the exhibition, are still in storage. We expect them by the end of the week. #dedepuppets #art #kunst #renovation #exhaustion

Here are the five Emotional Intelligence Dedes in their last group photo. They are waiting at the back door to be shipped to their new homes. The lucky winners of this lot are @Theblanche
@denise_m_oehl
@wizened_gnome @robotic_woodsmith @Showtiart Which one goes where will be decided by lot. #dedepuppets #giveaway #emotionalintelligence

L'Artiste is struggling with the packaging material, but don't worry, the travellers will go to the post office tomorrow. #dedepuppets #art #kunst #giveaway

The Unicorn is the first Dede to escape the fangs of Top Dog. Unicorn wasn't really in the competition and the symbol of goodness and magic was earmarked from the outset for our wonderful supporter @francisvalela I will reveal tomorrow where the other five are going 😍 #dedepuppets #giveaway #unicorn

"This week is so exciting" said Motivation to Self-Awareness "we will find out where our new homes will be." "You are so right, I can't wait to get out of here. I don't want to live with Top Dog for a minute longer?" #dedepuppets #art #kunst #giveaway #emotionalintelligence

And this is the third and last yet to be named traveller. He is wearing a pink shaggy cap and is easily confused. Here he just had scrambled out of his sleeping bag and looked out the car window to see the new world. Any suggestions for a name. #dedepuppets #travelling #noname #excitement

"Dedes only live in Dedeland, right? When we leave, how do people know we are the real things and not some fakes?" "Don't you worry, born a Dede always a Dede. Look at your neck, there is our black-and-red logo with the signature of our Artist." #dedepuppets #art #kunst #signature #realthing

"I am not surprised the Artist had bad luck" said Devil "she hadn't taken any of us yesterday!" #dedepuppets #travel #luck #noluck #devil

Monday's film is nearly finished. In that one the kids came up with a really funny story and played it out with the Dedes. When I am done, I will post it here. #dedepuppets #workshop #play #holidayprogramme #stopmotion #kidscreative #creativekids #fun #puppets #art #estuaryartscentre

These were the actors in yesterday's film. As cute and as individual as their creators, I'd say. #dedepuppets #workshop #creativity #art #kunst #estuaryartcentre #puppetry #stopmotion

Making "actors" from scrap material for our stop-motion film this afternoon. #dedepuppets #stopmotion #estuaryartcentre #workshop

Here they are, my little chums, looking pretty for the visitors. #dedepuppets #estuaryartscentre #puppets #exhibition #public #awayfromhome

"I am not sure whether the Dedes will agree to expel the cat" Bobby confided to Top Dog. "Rubbish" said Top Dog. "Look, the Dedes are living in their own bubble and they have no idea what's good for them!" #dedepuppets #art #kunst #expel #cat #trouble #work #bubble #livinginbubble

"I wish the others would stop talking about the cat and help me" lamented Mouse. "Tomorrow we have to go down to Auckland for our workshops and there is still so much stuff to pack." #dedepuppets #auckland #workshop #work #packing #art #kunst

"I have the feeling we are constantly under surveillance since we moved to this place!" said Snippedy, the clown. "It makes me really feel uncomfortable!" "You can help us then. Go and join Bobby! Dedeland for the Dedes" Top Dog replied #dedepuppets #surveillance #newhome #newhouse #cat #tenant #art #kunst

"Ah' here she is! Tell me what she has done to deserve your treatment," said Mouse when she finally made the acquaintance of Miss Slinky. "She stole a muffin. And she can't deny it as the entire world witnessed it." "You know the house was vacant for 3 weeks. No one fed her and she must have been pretty hungry!" Mouse, who is a descendant of a long line of church mice defended the new addition to the household. "Lay off your sob stories. A crime is a crime!" #dedepuppets #crime #muffin #stealing #hungry #mouse #cat #art #kunst #defence #newhome #newhouse #tenant

"Hey, I am putting together a task force to fight the cat," said Bobby, the policeman. "She has no right to be here. I surely can count on you, can't I?" "What makes you think that? I haven't even met her yet!" answered Mouse indignantly. "I can assure you, once you bump into her, it's all over for you!" #dedepuppets #art #kunst #politics #cat #evil #newhome #tenant

"Hey, if we start poking her with a stick she won't stay placid for long" said Top and handed Bobby a tool. "But make sure no one sees you." #dedepuppets #cat #newhome #power #plan #politics #devious #nasty #art #kunst #battle #newhouse #leader #ruler #cat #annoying

"Now I owe Miss Slinky an apology" said Nosy Neighbour while he stroked her on the back. "Why?" asked Sir Shaggy astounded. "You don't know Top Dog yet. He will use her as a scapegoat to push through his agenda! Let me warn you, we are in for rough times." "No way," replied Sir Shaggy. "Look, she is such a placid cat. His message will fall on deaf ears." #dedepuppets #cat #politics #enemy #scapegoat #agenda #kunst #art #newhome #newhouse #battle

Look who is back! And he is back with a bang: "This cat won't negotiate! We have to get rid of her! She moved in... Who is next? Cows? No, I say we have to close our borders and get rid of uninvited aliens! And only I, Top Dog, can lead the charge. Dedeland for the Dedes!" #dedepuppets #politics #borders #aliens #art #kunst #sad #cat #extradition #leader

"In your dreams! That's my house and you are an intruder!" answered Miss Slinky and walked away #dedepuppets #cat #powerstruggle #art #kunst #encounter #newmate #enemy #foe #peace #apology #troubleinparadise

"I demand an apology" said Nosy Neighbour firmly. "What for?" asked Miss Slinky. "You pushed me, you muffin thief!" #dedepuppets #cat #powerstruggle #art #kunst #encounter #newmate #enemy #foe #peace #apology

Miss Slinky didn't care. Everything here obviously belongs to her. "That's not on!" said Sir Shaggy. "If that is her take, she will be out of here faster than she can say muff..." By the way, that was the last muffin, the Dedes had eaten all the others on arrival. They were truly delicious. #dedepuppets #catthief #art #kunst #muffin #muffinthief #cat #noton #accident #incident

Nancy, a kind neighbour, had made some muffins she dropped off as a welcoming gift for us. The hardworking Dedes wanted to have one for lunch today. They had just sat down when Miss Slinky appeared. "Go away, that's ours" said Nosy Neighbour and held his hand over the muffin. #dedepuppets #thief #cat #muffins #trouble #settlingin #newhome #newhouse #art #kunst

Miss Slinky, the cat, has cheated her way back into the house. She definitely believes she has home rights. #dedepuppets #cat #muffin #accident #stealing #hungry #art #kunst

"We should thank @angelcorpuschristi for reminding us to wear our safety gear. Cleaning the wood burner was a pretty messy job!" Said Nosy Neighbour exhausted. "We have done an excellent job, I reckon." Sir Shaggy opened the door again "yes, but we are not done yet. We also need to replace the broken fire bricks and the air tube that is completely rusted through! How do we do that?" #dedepuppets #renovations #fireplace #cleaning #art #kunst #newhome #newhouse

Today it is the Dedes versus the rusty fireplace. "On youtube they say you can get it looking brand-spanking new" said Nosy Neighbour. "Good luck with that," said Sir Shaggy "the windpipe is rusted through as well." #dedepuppets #renovations #moving #doup #newhome #newhouse #art #kunst
