Well, you learn a new thing everyday! I googled the collective term for a group of penguins and discovered that there is no generally accepted term, but that
"At the 4th International Penguin Conference in Chile in September 2000, it was agreed by penguin researchers that they would try to refer to a group of penguins on the land as a "waddle" of penguins and a group in the water as a "raft" of penguins. We hope that these collective nouns will become widely accepted in the near future."
Don't you just love that there was even a penguin conference?!!! I love penguins. I would love to see them in their natural habitat one day, and have decided New Zealand is the place to go - they have little blue ones!! (also sometimes known as fairy penguins). Until that time I make do with visits to the zoo and things like my favourite mugs
Crafty Individuals had made some of 'Alice Palace's' drawings into stamps and after seeing her puffin I wrote and asked if she'd done any penguins. She had, and promptly contacted CI to suggest penguins stamps...
... and now I have a set :) I was going to give them coloured tummies, as in the design on my Anna Wright mug above, but the journal page I made was too busy so I'll save that idea for another day.
Instead I added them to a page in my little paperback journal, including stars (by Stampotique) and some home made bunting, all in true Alice Palace style!
