twelfth night

Packed the decs up a bit earlier than usual. I always keep them up til 12th night, but the tree was looking dead and was starting to smell plus it's Monday tomorrow, good day to start the new year properly.The adult in me is very pleased, but the kid in me is sad to see it all come down. Have you still got yours up? Or ditched the decs already?

Folktale week

I've a deadline this week so I might do some of
@folktaleweek next week! Here's a #warmdownsketch for the first prompt #Birth.
 A changeling is a human like creature that is believed to be a fairy child left in place whilst they make off with a human one. A baby that was healthy and happy previously might suddenly become horrible or sickly, was thought to have been swapped, a changeling. There's also tales of the changelings being grotesque and troll like but the mother refuses to see it and cares for the changeling as if it's her own. A bit like a cuckoo chick! If you suspect a changeling and you want the baby back, you need to brew beer in an eggshell. Pop some water and malted barley over a fire and then sprinkle in some dried hops. The changeling should cry out in disbelief "I am old, old very old, but I never saw beer brewed in an eggshell before!" Then your original child should reappear. Handy eh?

Band Together


Two more days left to pre-order!
You'll get to meet Duck who is a solo act. He loves the peace and quiet of his beach side home, and would like some friends, but he's been on his own too long and finds it very overwhelming making new ones. But after helping a stranded band fix their broken down van he gets caught up in the fun playing together. Maybe he could ask them to play with him again? But that niggling overthinking voice gets in the way, why would they want to be friends with him?!
When Seagull gets sick just before the concert will Duck drum up the courage and accept Bear's invitation to join them to help out?!

Band Together


Only one more week to pre order Band Together! (Head online to your fave book shop!) Here's a few layouts that didn't make it into the final book. There are many versions of Band Together before it settled into the story it is, so there's quite a few roughs and thumbs that got cut! I thought they'd might like a chance to be seen as they're tucked away in a dark cupboard usually!
