Busy (but quiet) Beanie

I know I haven't posted for a while, but I've been busy making things! Andrea has finished my passport, so it now has my picture in it, my name and date of birth too!! It has a space to put my place of birth, but I don't know where that is yet. Andrea says we have to get an atlas out and have a look, but I don't know what Atlas is. I had to sign the Passport, and it's got a rubber stamp in of Paris and a postage stamp from Amsterdam too!!! Just to prove that I've been there!!!

I've also been busy losing things around town, and making more stuff with papers and glue sticks and taking photos of them to post later.

And Andrea says I'm going to be Manga, soon!!!! Just like in that Manga convention we went to!!!

I'm really excited, I like Manga!

Beanie Zines??

Now, a couple of people have mentioned to me that they'd like to see my travel stories in a book. Since I've now "run out" of stuff to photograph and blog, I need to start MAKING stuff (FAB!) and I've just had a thought.

I could put my travel stories into Zines and jazz them up..... I don't know how it works about selling them though and it would have to be seriously limited editions of maybe 100 max.

Does anyone know anything about Zines? And do you like the idea of Beanie Zines?! Please comment!!! They'd have findable art in them, of course!!

Beanie's got a Passport!!

Andrea made me my very own passport!! She says I'm from a place called the United Squeaks of Rodentia, which must make me Rodentish. And the picture on the front is called A Coat Of Paws, and it has a Piece of Cheese, a Mouse, and Crossed Fondue Forks!! And it even has a Latin Maxim in the banner which says "Fondue Enim Omnis". Andrea says that means "Fondue For All"!!!
I've never had Fondue but Andrea says it's made out of Cheese and I know I like Cheese!!

Beanie and the Art Exhibition Day Four

On Monday 1st June, we got up and had breakfast. Andrea said it was our last breakfast at the Manor House and we had to go home today. I got sad about that, it's been such a wonderful weekend.

We went back to our room and I made sure Andrea's new painting was safely packed away.

All set to go. I like weekends away.... specially when I meet people like Tony, Jill, Sally and Traveler. They're going home today too.... I hope they had just as good a holiday as I've had.

We got another Bus, the C1, that goes to Victoria Station. Andrea says these are more fun than Underground, because you get to see where you're going.
I agree with her!

There was a funny sign on Bus by our seat!! I hope nobody sits on my lap, I'd get squished!

We went past Horrid's again! I like going to Horrid's, they do good afternoon tea there!

And here we are at Victoria Station. Only took us half an hour...! I don't want to go home....

On the train, going back over the Thames River....

And here we are going through the Sussex countryside. This is near the South Downs...

And home again ...... Andrea's painting got here safely!! She's hung it up on the wall now, and we both love it!!!
