I fill my daily planner with loads of things, so that if I died tomorrow it would look like I had a lot planned.

The Strangers Next Door.

I have posted 100 letters to houses and flats on my street 'Eaton Place'. I have simply asked my fellow street inhabitants to anonymously tell me something about themselves. They can lie if they like or simply tell me how they like to drink their tea. Whatever they feel like. They just have to write something on the back of the letter and post it back to me in the envelope provided. I have popped a few questions in the letter for people that feel comfortable answering them. Not sure what I will do with the replies (if I get any) just yet, but I would like to create some kind of image of the person from the snippet of information they choose to share with me. Who knows....gonna sit back and wait now. So excited. 

I was really inspired by this documentary I saw...

 The film-maker, Sue Bourne interviewed the people who lived on the street that she had lived on for 14 years. It filled me with an urge to start community projects and try to get to know the people who live all around me. I suppose this project is a start.

 It is 'Movember' and all of my friends are growing moustaches. 

Blergh. Rain. Going to meet Chloe at The Tic Toc Cafe to do journals and write 'Hello' on one hundred letters that I MUST post this evening.

Felt Up

Me plus friends like Roz here. Have joined a Brighton craft club called 'Felt Up'. We attend on Sundays and make things. There's cake, music and tea. We haven't actually made any felt yet. We've only been one week. We made a banner for the club. I made A and Roz made B. I like clubs. 

Granny and Grandpa

It's my Grandparents 50th Wedding Anniversary next August and I've decided to make a big book compiled of memories, quotes, music, photos, film, illustrations and other bits and bobs all relating to my huge family. To start, I've written letters to all my Uncles and Aunties for ideas and stories etc. I'm hoping they will all reply. I'm sending the letters tomorrow. I've wax sealed them and coded them with bits of recipe books. Completely unnecessary but fun all the same.

Street Art/Graffiti Exhibition

Popped into gallery/open studios the other day and saw these. You could open up shutters on the wall to reveal rat guts and skull. I think the idea of working in such a large scale intimidates me. I like to work small THEN blow it up.

This work was in the same gallery. It was displayed in a basement so photos are dark and out of focus. But I really like it. The artist had used small fragments of wood to raise all of her characters/images from the frames. I may try this myself!

I am ill.

Back In Business

It was dark when I left work today. I think this Winter will be amazing.

Now living in beautiful Brighton with a job to pay for biscuits, tea and an internet connection I can finally start blogging it up big time. Sighhh of relief. From now on my blog will simply be a way of referencing the things that truly inspire me. I can come back to it whenever I need a reminder of what it is that keeps me going..... That makes me sound depressed. But I'm not. Promise.

Went cycling started to rain so I sought shelter at a near by cafe and drank a carton of apple juice. It is gloriously sunny now that I am home.

Asthma Check Up

I Really Really Really Want To Get:

A Sewing Machine That Actually Works
A Set of Decks
An Old School Car
A Cine/Super 8 Video Camera
An Even Older Typewriter
A Jump Suit
A Decent Scanner
A Pretty Bike With A Basket

On the plus side...I managed to sort out my studio space in the basement. It's quite incomprehensible just how much STUFF I own. I have no idea how I have accumulated it all. Need to start spending more time down there....making fun.

The First Of Many

I missed my Asthma Check Up today...The nurse rang. She didn't sound too impressed. "This isn't the first time" She said.

A Year In Photos

I attempted doing this for Graphics project on my Foundation course...lasted almost two weeks and gave up.
