Things I Talk About on Twitter (6)

So as you might know, I work at the library, doing Storytime for 3-5 year olds. It happens in the back room of the library which I have been working on making a bit more colourful as it was rather grey and boring before.

Here's what it looks like now (click on any of the pictures to make them bigger):

First wall. The butterflies and bees are leftover from last summer's Where the Wild Things Are themed programs. I thought they were cute, so I kept them. I think I might make some more butterflies, too.
My full Hey-Diddle-Diddle Wall, and our craft tables. The blue thingies are leftover from a special event the library hosted. They were bright and colourful, so we left them up there.
This wall isn't decorated as well, but I ran out of time to do another drawing, so... it is what it is. My felt board's along this wall, and this is where I set up the extra books (you can see some of them here, but usually there are more) here, so it usually has a bit more going on.
Close up of Humpty Dumpty. I rather like his face, and the wall. This one might just be my favourite.
I like the cat, but not the fiddle as much. I'm not good with colouring wood things. Ah, well. Not bad.
(Hey, diddle, diddle, The cat and the fiddle)
I love the cow. It was so easy to do and I think it turned out pretty well.
(The cow jumped over the moon.)
The dog was the first one I tackled. It's not half bad, is it?
(The little dog laughed, To see such sport,)
I think these two are really cute.
(And the dish ran away with the spoon.)
I don't love the hickory dickory dock clock, but it works. The mouse is kinda cute.
I also set up a mini toy Storytime. I think it's cute. :)
(Ignore the boxes of books. There's no room for them in the back room, so I put them out here. If I hid them in the back, I wouldn't be able to get to my craft supplies.)

So. Whatcha think? Suggestions for jazzing it up? Oh, and what else would you like to see in these posts?

Peace and cookies,


  1. That is so cool you do story time! I only do Mandarin Story time at my library and that's only like twice a year :(

    Aww I love your drawings they are so cute ^^ and the mini story time is awesome too!!

  2. Ashe: Thanks!!

    Wdebo: I love it. :) Thanks!! I think they turned out pretty well. The mini-Storytime helps keep the kids from playing with the toys as much when I don't want them to :P
