JoJo Gnome Loves Tiree

IMG_1653

Where I go JoJo Gnome follows and this year we were once again on the beautiful Scottish Island of Tiree. This wee jewel is the perfect place for walking, writing and unwinding. It was also the place where I was convinced I should go on a bike again for the first time in over a year. The island is inspirational in so many ways and I always come away with lots of ideas. This year I have decided to have a summer fun page with some activities which the under 5’s ( and over 5’s too) might like to have a go at. These will include quizzes, sand drawing (check out video here), making your own postcards and videos to watch on rainy indoor days.

JoJo Gnome on Gott Bay, Tiree

For the sand drawing videos I decided to do some stop frame animation on Gott Bay, which is a wonderful 4km long stretch of beach. With a bit of help I managed to finish the video just before the tide came in (phew) and washed away all of the art work.

Chocolates and Charms Tiree

I was delighted that the lovely gift shop in Tiree ‘Chocolates and Charms’ will now be stocking JoJo Gnome books and badges. Drop in for a wee look if you are on the island. Rebecca who owns the shop also make her own lovely silver jewellery and delicious hand made chocolates. There are lots of other treats there too including ‘soor plooms’ (a very Scottish wersh sweetie) and pocket kites (who can resist!).
