Here is the 365 Scientist on the bus on his way to work with me. He really enjoyed the ride and looking out of the window at the world passing by. I'm guessing that will eventually wear thin and he'll find it as frustrating and dull as the rest of us soon! I didn't buy him a ticket though, so he's officially a fare dodger! I doubt they'd do special rates for plushies anyway.

After reading though my latest copy of Women's Fitness magazine, the 365 Scientist felt motivated to get into shape. He's devised himself a weights routine, based on the latest in sports and exercise research from all the best journals, and aims to complete it 3 times a week.

I got to use my Promarkers too and am so impressed with them!
Time to make dinner and the 365 Scientist offered to chop these fleshy spore-bearing fruiting body of fungi for me (his words, not mine!), and I could hardly refuse.

This morning the 365 Scientist set to work reading 'American Gods' by Neil Gaiman in time for the book club meeting tonight at my house. It's a pretty hefty read as you can see, but he practised the art of speed reading and managed to read the whole thing just in time. He found the book to be a little bit too weird for his liking, and he considered there to be too much pointless narrative that didn't really coincide with the deeper themes of the story. Turns out he was more interested in the wine that was on offer anyway!
The Plush Team is ecstatic to present to you our first ever Team Annual, containing 120 pages of plushy goodness!
What is in store for you upon opening this marvelous book:
- An opening by our team founder, Megan Green, describing how our team came to be.
- An insightful, informative, and all-around fascinating account of the history of plush craft by our team co-founder Christina Ward.
- 42 two-page, full color features of our Plush Team members. Each includes photos of the artist's work, and text written by the artist explaining motivation, process, and inspiration.
- A time line of Plush Team activities through over the years.Profile pages providing a comprehensive list of Plush Team artists, including artist head shots and Etsy shop addresses.
- Photos of PT Stitchy, the team mascot, scattered throughout the book in his various incarnations as interpreted by our team members.
The book is full color, professionally printed, and soft cover. It measures 6.75"x6.75" (or 17 centimeters square). This is volume 1 of our Team Annual, featuring the artists from 2009. Our intent is to make this a yearly publication, updating it each year with our newest members and their incredible work.
Visit the Team Shop today for your copy!
I'm looking forward to this 30 day challenge, and I hope to share some of my pages on here and in the flickr group (if I'm brave enough that is!). I'm also looking forward to this because I get to meet likeminded people, and to know that it is OK to have these hobbies and it's not something to be embarassed by, just because it's not considered 'proper art'.

With the lavender in the garden almost at the end of its blooming period, the 365 Scientist and I thought it would be a great idea to use some in our baking today! We made this rather yummy lavender cake and some lovely little cookies too. The 365 Scientist discovered that baking is a little like carrying out an experiment, so I think he might be baking again very soon.

I really must give him a name soon! Any suggestions would be welcomed - thinking something geeky or a name of a famous scientist!

P.S. If you'd like to buy the books they are: Oodles of Doodles by Nikalas Catlow and Pocket Doodles for Kids by Bill Zimmerman & Tom Bloom.

I was feeling a little poorly today so the 365 Scientist and I just slobbed out on the sofa. He decided to use the time on my new laptop, catching up on his data input. He's made a snazzy graph of just how much fun he's had over the last few days. Naturally the day with the highest fun percentage was the day he spent in the lab. Bless him - he really is quite the geek.
Tigsy had the usual morbid fascination with the mummies too!
Overall, he had a great day and can't wait to go back to London and explore more museums!
