Love Those Scamps

The one thing that I love about being a hermit worker is that on the chances that you do meet other hermits sometimes you find ones that are just plain lovely - and I do mean sometimes! and so they are very special. Thank you to Scamp who let me jabber for their blog, if you'd like to read jibberish on a different page then click here....

Finger Fun

When the lovely boys at Ohh Deer asked me to do a workshop thing at their stand during Pick Me Up of course I said "no" but after persistence I realised there was no way out. Finger puppets! that was on the agenda, I'd embroidered some faces and made some blanks for decorating, between Toby and I we actually came out with a heap of ways of making finger friends... And below are some of the results!





ARM PUPPET! 

you can never go wrong with googley eyes









Thank you to all those who came and a big thank you to @MrFingerbobs who officially let me be acting Yoffy for the day, I was honoured. Yes that was the real Yoffy.

Museum + Heritage Show 2015

This week I did exhibited at the Museum + Heritage trade show for the first time, I was hoping to show you photos from it ... then I realised I'd only taken photos of my own stand.  So this is all you get...


Gordon the Gorilla, Spike the fish and well... column




if only I had a pound for everyone that said "where can I get that mug and tea towel from?"

a museum A to Z - won't get you anywhere you know

close up of Spike

Column, still looks rude to me
The show is a two day event in Olympia, London and was lovely to see lots of exhibitors from similar events. It was quite busy, hot and expensive sandwiches and plug points for that matter only time will tell as to the results. 
The event also has an awards section for the museums (well and heritage) here be the winners on the Guardian site.
