Todayyyy my OK Go vest top arrived!!!

Okay, Arts on Prescription. Today I started something that will be a work in progress over the next few weeks.

Here’s some drawings, I LOVE Jade’s doodles MUCH more and think doodles would have been better but I just thought about the different stages too much >.<

Soooo, stages, 1st step was do draw some designs and ideas, then to start working on felt

This is glitter glue and will dry flat. Next monday I’ll embroider on to it, add buttons, beads and pretty bits.

Also, Jade took with her our designs (Sue made a brilliant picture involving, I think, irises, and her son, Johnny, did a fantastical space/underwater, graffiti inspired design), and Jade will scan our designs on to acetate, which will be projected on to the wall and we will then hold a small canvas to the wall and pick out small bits of our enlarged designs!

I VERY much enjoy Jade’s small canvas that she brought in as an example, she had sewn in to the canvas, added buttons over paint and details added by pen, VERY funky and cool. Whew. Let’s see how we go! =)

OH! AND DON’T DESPAIR! I’ll be making plastic and paper beads at Dee’s house on Friday, then I will tak pictures and put a tutorial on here, AND post my fave paper bead tutorials on here too =D

GRAND but busy days to come! WHEW!

Day in the life…MATH

leave a comment »

Today! Had a go making paper beads because I’m doing a workshop at the weekend *cross fingers* about making paper and plastic beads! WOOP

I’m now doing math- math makes my thumb nails disappear. REALLY! It has been a while since college. And at college I learned how to calculate taxes and to work out APR (which meant doing percentages) on loans and how to book holidays but WE USED CALCULATORS! Calculators that were almost bound to our hands when doing course work!

AND! AND! Math teacher taught me that I dont HAVE to do *insert number here* divided by 100 X *insert number here* to find a percentage! SO SUCK EGGS! To all the (frankly) nasty math teachers who naver showed us the simplified way!

Simplified way means I dont need to use a flipping calculator 😉



AND! these math papers are MEAN because they word things BADLY! SO, just so I can’t get the answer wrong I’ve been answering every question that it insinuates- for not making it clear enough what they want me to answer!

“How much extra will Sally have to pay in money?”
I could now ask the paper “Do you want me the answer ‘how much extra, from what she estimated, will Sally have to pay?’ or ‘How much extra will she have to pay INCLUDING the 9% increase in energy bills” or ‘What’s 9% of last years energy bill’ OR ‘What does she have to pay based on her QUARTERLY bill’. not only that but while working out all these solutions to questions my mum puts it to me that she… “I don’t know what to have for my dinner or tea”

*deep breath*

math + preparing for craft fayre + preparing for work shop and trying to think of all I need to pack up for stalls and workshop _+ mum asking what she should have for dinner and tea = my having an a brain aneurysm… and me exaggerating because of nervousness and stress.

*slower dveep breath*

In less streful thoughts, LOOK at the vest top that they’re sending me from the competition I won! XD *swooooooooooon*

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
