look at this most lovely penguin my mum discovered when sorting through some of her old belongings.

he's mine now (and the little ones too) and they're all coming with me to brighton to sit happily in my new room.
on a shelf.

gosh, i hope i have shelves in my room.
if not i'd better hurry up and put some up.

a room without shelves is hardly a room at all.

look after the pennies

i found one

a while back i posted about how i really wanted a piggybank for saving up my pennies (pounds) and the other day i found this little fellow in a charity shop. i love the flowery pattern on him, and how his nostrils look like commas. cute. hope i don't get too attached or i'll find it tricky to smash him when he gets full up.

i'm collecting 2 pound coins at the moment so if you have any spare then do send them in :-)

i realised today that i never posted a picture (or did i? correct me if I'm wrong) of these wonderful handcarved stamps i picked up at glastonbury festival:

i haven't got round to using them for much yet but I'm sure they'll come in handy (they are so nice!)

weighing things up

oops - i've been neglecting my blog again.

I've been so very busy of late but i feel a BIG post is just around the corner so don't give up on me.

I've just finished working at the bookbinders and have just completed a freelance book project so will have plenty of time to post next week.

until then, here's an illustration that was scrapped from the recent project (but I still quite like)
