Julie Arkell, maker of the lovely creations you see here, is simply amazing. We spent today crafting little creatures out of newspaper and wallpaper paste- a sort of paper mache process. Tomorrow, once they are dried, we will finish the surface with pages from old books, and sew and knit them clothes.
However- as a weary, traveling, pregnant lady, the thing I am enjoying most about our British experience is the fact that they never go more than an hour or so without a tea break. Forget everything else- cookies every hour- I'm sold!
