Rocking your world friday-on monday

Hello Friday Rockers. Well it's Monday so I am late posting and will have to make it a quick post.
Apologies for lateness, I am just so rushed for time at the moment, I don't know whats going on! I have not caught up with any ones blogs all week so apologies there as well.

* Last Saturday my Mum, Sister, Daughter and me went over to Southampton to watch Dirty Dancing at the Mayflower theatre. We had a girly day-shopping in primark, having lunch at Bella Pasta and my Mum bought me a lovely new bag! The show was fantastic and the atmosphere in the theatre was great-everybody singing along! We had to move seats during the interval as when we got up to go to the loo someone behind us had obviously spilt their drinks and it was all flooded around our feet, our bags were soaked and my daughters programme was ruined. I went and spoke to a member of staff and asked for a mop but when they came and looked they said they would move us instead. They replaced my daughters programme for her and then moved us downstairs to better seats! Bonus for us!
We had a fantastic day-I think it was one of the best shows I have seen-for entertainment value, atmosphere and just sheer feel good factor!

* Our May Day celebrations were cancelled last week due to the bad weather but on the plus side I managed to spend the day getting my art calendar done for the calendar challenge.

*I had a wonderful gift arrive in the post this week from Sherry. (check out her blog) She had sent me some of her clay faces that she makes for her art dolls and some hair for them. I happened to mention to her that I had looked at the moulds on ebay and was umming about them and she kindly sent me some to play with to help me make up my mind! Thank you so much Sherry, they are wonderful, I just have to find time to have a play now!

* Also this week I received Sue's journal in the post. This is the pair journal I signed up for. I have never seen anyone Else's art journal 'in the flesh' so it was wonderful just to stroke it! Sue's journal theme is Alphabetika.
The idea with this pair journal is that you can add to each others pages as well.
 Sue had started this page and I just added some red ink spray some washi tape and coloured in the little stamps. I was quite scared at first to touch/alter someone Else's work but after a good talking to from Sue I just got on with it and really enjoyed myself!
 This is the page I added in her journal...I wanted to think outside the box a little on her theme!

* This is a photo of me sculpting the head of my fairy at fairy club on Friday night. The very wonderful lady who runs it has allowed me to tag along with Paige as I was so Jealous-I have been a Froud fan for many many years!
I am enjoying it so much but it is very difficult!

*Some other little gratefuls- I bought some more beads and made my mum a bracelet as a thank you for buying my bag, Making worry beads with a friend, snuggling up in bed with Shelby when we both had sore throats, amazing volunteers that I work with and amazing women in the group, good friends and wonderful family, amazing kids and a great hubby!

That's it for this week. I will link up with our host virginia tomorrow and try and get round every ones posts- have to dash now, I am supposed to be somewhere in 15 mins and I'm still in my PJ's!
Have a great bank holiday!

You week sounds very busy, no wonder you are rushed for time! Glad you enjoyed the theatre in spite of getting wet feet! Lovely work in the journal, too! Hugs, Valerie

Wow that is an awesome post loving what you've been doing, those faces look amazing, as does the journal, love how you've added to the page, I'm fighting to finish mine at the moment!

Hope you have a beautiful and blessed week ahead.

Sam you life is just a constant spiral of non-stop cratiness :) I'm looking orward to seeing what you do with those faces and how your face turns out at Menna's fae club Px

Carmen said...

I read this the other day and was sure I posted on it! Am getting bad for that!

Loving all your positives this week. Yay for better seats and a great show. The journals look amazing and I can certainly understand your trepidation at working on top of someone else's work but it looks fabulous!

The clay faces and your fae workshop... am green with envy, can't wait to see what you do with those!

Have a great week Sam x

Sarah said...

whoa you've been busy :) Glad you enjoyed Dirty Dancing, must have been a fun day out :)

LOVE the additions you've made to Sue's page in the pair journal - go you brave girl you! and your own page too.

And the little faces are cool, look forward to seeing what you do wth those, and how your fairy finishes up...

I would say have a great week, but it's Friday again in 23 minutes! :)

Sherry said...

Sounded like the perfect girly day out Sam, glad you enjoyed it all.

I love what you've done to Sue's journal - I'm not brave enough to sign up to a pairs journal, but still enjoying looking at what everyone does.

Your clay sculptured head looks amazing, how clever you are! Look forward to seeing it all finished.

Have a lovely weekend x

PS thanks for your comment on my 101 goals in 1001 days post - guess what one of the outstanding goals is, a trip to see the Wightlink Raiders at Ryde rink :) (as we haven't seen them since they dropped down a league and we miss our trips over there)

I'll let you know when we are coming, would be fab to meet up with you and Paige for a coffee. Not that I drink coffee. For a glass of squash maybe :)
