Twitter party, and the Russell & Holmes origami colo(u)ring book

Okay, so every so often we do things on the site just for the fun of it.  Here’s one of them:

dreaming spies twitter

It’s a party, hosted by Russell & Holmes, inviting you (via Twitter) to join them in Sussex tomorrow. Or if you’d rather, you can just look on and watch the fun. These parties are a real kick, so if you’re around, do follow the instructions on the invite and see what ends up in Mrs Hudson’s aspidistra this year!

And, while you’re waiting for the party to start, what about a coloring book–

A one-page, folding origami-esque coloring book about The Voyages of Russell & Holmes, with art by members of the Russell community. Awaiting your colored pens or crayons.  Print it off and have some fun, here.

    Looking forward to the Twitter party and have put crayons on the “to acquire” list! What to wear, what to wear…

    Sigh All dressed up and no way to go. I do not tweet and, therefore, cannot join the festivities, alas.
    Please raise a glass and eat a scone on my behalf.

    Libby, feel free to log on and just watch the “party”–it’s hard to keep up and type in your reponses, anyway, and watching frees you to just read along with the flow.

    I shall hunt up my travel tweeds and motor down. Looking forward to a wonderful afternoon.

    Fun!! I used this folding technique for several projects with my students. Thanks for a chance to play!

    Thanks for the site. I don’t twitter either but would love to hear what is going on.
