Join our next #somum Make Date

Come find us on twitter on Wednesday 11 June from 8.30pm to 10pm UK time (find world times here) to talk movies and doodle some movie posters together...

Yes, it's that time of month again.

Time for your #somum movie mama close-up!

Lights. Camera. Action. Oh no, hang on.... Muu-uum!

Nappy to change. Child to rescue. Something burning. Something forgotten...  

There's always something to distract us from our magic movie moments. 

If only life was more like the movies. Or movies more like real life....  

Well this month, Mama's in the Movies!

We're making movie posters to celebrate our glorious (!!) red carpet lives. You can see some of mine here and in the gallery. 

No movie poster required (although if you want to use one, that's ace - whatever works best for you). 

You can doodle your own from scratch (like my one below...)

Together, let's make movies that reflect our own less than picture-perfect (and sometimes very occasionally perfect) experience of motherhood.

Then come on over and share your movie magic with us on twitter and in the gallery!

Join a #somum Make Date with Story of Mum

What is a #somum Make Date?

It's a chance for mums to get together on twitter and tweet while we attempt to do something creative - like doodlingtaking a photowriting poetrymaking stuff or even squidging plasticine.

We give ourselves some creative me-time and connect with other lovely mums. We do it every second Wednesday of the month and we would love you to join us. New friends are always very welcome.

You don't have to be a clever crafter, an artist or wordsmith. We're all about having a go regardless of talent or experience. Most of all, it's about getting together and having fun.

If you just want to chat, that's completely fine. If you just want to make something and lurk and never tell us you're there, that's fine too. We're just happy you're making time for you.
