Sometimes you need a little lift .. yet another music blog post

I really love putting on doll faces – I feel like this is when the dolls really come ‘alive’. Something magical happens once they get their little faces put on and they say their first ‘hello’. OMG – I really must sound a bit crazy , maybe a bit like these people! Basically I spend Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday all day and night embroidering on faces. It’s a nice time – I sit with Rachel and the other gals and chit chat and have tea. It’s a LOT of faces and by Wednesday at around 1pm when I’ve got 8 or 10 left I start to go a bit stir crazy from sitting down 3 days straight. This is when I throw on the ‘up’ tunes. I thought it would be fun to share with you gals (especially my other indie rock lovin’ friends out there) my top 10 ‘fill me up’ tunes. Some of these are a tad more ‘harder’ then what we play in the shop .. the gals know what mood I’m in when these come on LOUD!

1. Icky Thump – White Stripes
2. Mary – Supergrass
3. Taken for a Fool – The Strokes
4. Called out in the Dark – Snowpatrol
5. Dissolve – The Chemical Brothers (I just saw the new Victoria’s Secret ad and they use a bit of this song!)
6. Celestica – Crystal Castle
7. Rhinestone Eyes – Gorillaz
8. Fire – Kasabian
9. Whole Lotta Love – Led Zeppelin
10. Electric Feel – MGMT

It’s incredible when some good music is on and how incredible it can make you feel! Who needs chocolate? Well, the chocolate helps too but you know what I mean …


Here’s the only music-ish picture I have .. I took this picture last weekend on a photography workshop I took. The guy was our initial model but then his son came and .. well, it is SO cute to see a father and son together!

And another picture I took this weekend while waiting for the ferry at Horseshoe Bay. I learned something called HDR photography .. so neat! Dang, I love where I live.

See you tomorrow!

    I so enjoyed this post C…not only the music (I’m always on the lookout for something new!) but also the link you posted and that beautiful HDR pic! I love your comment about the magical moment the little ladies come to life for the first time….I’ve been a puppeteer for a long time and I completely get what you mean ๐Ÿ™‚ Kinda like the first time I put a new puppet on my hand and bring a character to life….they truly become real and I can see and hear just what they would say and do. I can’t imagine how amazing it is to watch so many dolls come to life every week ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the fantastic music picks~ Gregory LOVES chairlift so he’ll be excited to see anything I can dig up that’s new. Have a fantastic weekend!

    LOVE the picture of the mountain, Also I think they do come to life as ours usually are found with jump marks on the beds and having friends from other rooms over for a game or storytime. It is very magical. ๐Ÿ™‚
