memo colouring book

on thursday i created a walk in colouring book at the moleskine arty party at temple works in leeds. the event was the result of a project called the travelling moleskine project organised by the culture vulture earlier this year which involved moleskine journals being passed from friend to friend, each book had a different theme.

the book i contributed to had the theme 'things that look like other things'. i used this theme to create doodles for people to colour in. the image above shows some of the results.

see more images of my colouring book here

memo goodie bag giveaway!

i collect things. LOTS of things! anything from old postcards to 1960s plates and wind up robots from the 1980s. i thought it might be fun to share some of my collection with you.. so heres the plan:

leave a comment on this post about things you collect or why you'd like a part of my collection and i'll post out two packages of bits and pieces (the image gives a few examples) along with a couple of memo goodies too. two people will be picked at random at the end of october, get commenting!!

the make, bake and grow fair last weekend..

for some reason unknown to me i didn't take any photos at the make, bake and grow fair in armley last sunday. i did take some photos of my stall the night before when i set it up on my kitchen table. this is pretty much what it looked like on sunday.

it was a really good day, some of the cakes entered into the competiton looked really impressive, check them out on the make, bake and grow blog here and the leeds grub blog here
