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

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!!
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.
