So after an intensive mud walking, gumboot toting, poncho wearing week I am back in Brisbane with all my teeth where I left them and aching thighs. The 20th annual East Coast Blues Fest was as muddy as it was bluesy. The weather and the smell of the port-a-loos were about as pleasant as a French man's arm pit but I still managed to rock out or as normal people would say, have fun. Michael Franti was my number one, super, dooper highlight of the festival. Check this shit out ... Michael Franti and Spearhead : Hey World (Don't Give Up)
This is me being a wanker, waiting for Ben Harper ... who granted, is a GREAT musician but really a bit of an arrogant twat it seems ... the last two times I've seen him I've been like hhhhhhhmmmmm after (and that's a bad hhhhhmmmmmm not a good noise like the mmmmmmmm you make about ice cream from the tub on the couch or cold baked potatoes from the fridge with too much salt)
Back to arty stuff ... I'm branching out and doing earrings now. In between being a cool, rock goddess slash blues groover, I sit at home, alone with my dog making Jewellery from children's books. I have added some of my new earrings to my etsy shop ... also this week I'll be giving away a pair! Generous and a looker, what don't I have? Modesty evidently.
So comment here about anything, and yes I am aware that I look like I've suffered a stoke in this pic. It's a medical condition called 'being a tired, little bit drunk, moron'.
Lastly you can vote for my 'upcycled' Etsy products here ... vote, vote, vote !! My little heart brooch from the book the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe was picked in the Eco Friendly Items for a Better World comp on Etsy ...
