Robert’s book!

with one comment

Right! The book I’m working on for AJing lately belongs to Robert of Once Upon a Stamp. For each person’s book I’ve been collecting bits and bobs or the right colours and interesting textural bits- there’s a bag, per person, of their colours of choice, CHOCCA! But still when Lynn handed me Rob’s book I got a bit of arty anxiety “how could his compare to mine!?” but I’ll be fine! I WILL! ahem 😉

I really enjoyed doing W&C Lynn’s Postcards! Problem is that I’ the second (after herself) to work in the book and I fear the next few people will glare and growl “argh! woman stole the easy ideas!!”

I like the sentence but I’m not sure of the rest =( So this might change before I next hand over the cards

There is another sky
Ever serene and fair,
Such beauty that for a minute
Death and ambition, even love,
Doesn’t enter into this.


I get ideas at the last-minute and in my last-minute wisdom thought “I should do another two cards”. DOH! But class wasn’t on last Monday so maybe If I find time on Thursday between counseling, preparing food for a fuddle and dad’s concert and on Friday after a wake… eek!

Saturday I have rehearsal at Theatre Royal from 10- 4pm and sunday from 11:30, it’ll be  scary few days! Help out a social phobe’ and fill in for me? By the way, we’re rehearsing the sorcerer’s apprentice and this is the link for the show. We get to watch a bit of it before we go on and I’m excited! SHH! I dont care it’s for families with kids, I am a kid!

T’other day I went to see Patrick Wolf with Allanah Wolf  (see trocks pic in previous entry) and it was a ‘bit of loveliness’ as R&G Lynn would say! An array of instruments and synth, indie/folk/electro and stagey dancing and russian dancing and it perked and cheered me right up!! I luff Mr Rowdy’s gold foil too *swoon* and the voguing… to the point where I didn’t even mind having to make my dad’s birthday cake in the wee hours of the morning when we finally got home! …Well it was that or wake up early to make the cake… despicable habit, that.

I really don’t believe the second voice belongs to Eliza Carthy =o(

SO! Here’s Robert’s orange and pink book, the pages I have started:

…and some fings collected to work with

LOTS to do =D
Next up? Helping Japan’s survivors =)

Making and Music… but not making music… luckily for you!

Saturday I went to a concert! My Chemical Romance supported by Lost Alone (Notts pride!) and The Blackout.

Tip for Blackout- Don’t call all women liars, insult Nottingham and then tell us that you’ll be back in April… I will throw rotten eggs when you return.

It was brill, lots of the crowd were lovely and considerate and fragrant and fresh- the last being a perk of a mostly female crowd! This might sound mean toward fellas but Oi! You’re tall! Stop pushing down on me and put your elbows away! *ouch* flops*

There are some brave/mad women following the bands on tour but my friend Allanah and I were ready to flop and squirm in pain before the gig even started!

From the gig we learnt that we really like neon guitars

A vest saying “HELL HERE” would be liked more by me if it said “HELLO THERE”… I’d much prefer it!


You can wear a cardigan and still be flipping cool!


and lights

make me happy

And I learnt that most people just didn’t understand why we were all lining up early!

Here’s the result of a sleepy bust ride home at 1am and sharing earphones after the gig:

You can be a star, you can shine so bright, oh oh, you can be your own spotlight…


Oh so achey now!

So sleepy….

Okay, so maybe this isn’t the best time to update but it’s 16 minutes to 1am and I feel like typing!

I just got off the phone to Dee *waves* and she complimented my blog writing- ignoring our pet peeve of bloggers who hardly ever update *cough* Me *cough*

SO, what has happened in Cherise’s World…

Ahem! I’m a happy little Toaster! I went to see OK Go! … Shut up, their music’s brilliant and fantastic!

Also I made some hand warmers that I have yet to take pictures of, but I heart them and they keep me company on my walks!

I’ll try not to wait so long before updating and giving the internet more tasty, colourful, pixely morsels of pictures!

Good Night/ Bon Nuit
