After a little prep talk from a friend I did the first doll for this years calendar, and she's a cutie.

I'm cutting it tight but I'm excited.

The calendar is on if it kills me.

I've done 4 dolls since Saturday so I'm on a roll XD.

So how is the dolling community doing these days? I'm so far outside it I can barely see it any more, I want back in.

It's almost November, I haven't done a doll all year. I don't know if the advent calender will happen this year :(

It's that time of year again, the time I lose my mind and set out to make 24 unique dolls for Christmas.

I think you'll enjoy this year.

I'll admit I cheaped out on the background for the advent calendar, I ran out of time so recycled one of my favourites.

I hope you enjoy and most importantly I hope yo have a wonderful Christmas and a fantastic now year.

A disaster of Rumpus Cat proportions has occurred. I’ve just gone on to book my ticket for Cats in London for my birthday, December 11th and now I want to cry.

Cats opens in London on the 6th December, after that it is playing every day except Sundays, Christmas Day and…the 11th December!

Now unless my family are richer than they let on and have booked the theatre out for a private showing (ha!) my plans are ruined :(

I’ll go the weekend after my birthday instead, but it’s not the same :(

Still working on my advent calendar, obviously, but I worked out the other day that so far I've done 120 dolls for my advent calenders. One of these days I'm going to run out of ideas.

Where do some people get off stealing someone else's work? All my dolls have BC Boo on them, I'm the only BC Boo so you can't really claim they belong to anyone else. I spend hours on all of my dolls and I don't put all that effort into them so some **** can claim them as their own.

Only 108 days till Christmas, which means 85 day til my 2013 Advent Calendar goes live.

If I want to finish the entire calendar before the go live date I'll have to do a doll every 3 days…but I always intend on getting it done before the 1st December and never manage it, so I'm not expecting miracles.

Anyway, here I go, break out the Christmas music and wish me luck.

Jellicle Cats come one come all

Journal Entry: Thu Jun 27, 2013, 12:27 PM




I saw Cats for the 8th time last night and let me tell you, that show never gets old. If you're in the UK and get a chance to see the tour just go, it is an amazing cast.

Some highlights:

Mungojerrie was taking the pee out of everyone and got a gentle slap from Jennyanydots at one point.

Just before The Gumbie Cat Mungojerrie and Rumpleteazer were blowing raspberry faces at each other across the stage.

Munukustrap seemed particularly on edge, I swear that boy is on the edge a heart attack, and yes Tugger is mostly responsible :p

Munkus almost got kicked in the pollicles by the Rumpus Cat :D

After The Addressing of Cats when half the jellicle's are running around the audience Mungojerrie and Rumpleteazer started having a playfight on stage which Munkus had to split up.

At one point Jerrie and Teazer were doing the lindy hop together :D

When the jellicle's started coming back on stage for act two Jerrie came running on giving Teazer a piggy back

When they repeated the chorus of Magical Mr Mistoffelees after the main song was finished, the cats were all running through the audience, Gus and Jellylorum walked behind me and Gus was singing very out of tune at the top of his voice, it felt so right.

I always love when Genghis bows to Gus after Growltiger's Last Stand, it always warms my heart.

I don't know if this is new or if I've just been too stupid to notice before but the black markings on Bombalurina's costume are in the shape of a bra, genius.

Jemima was absolutely darling, there's no other way to describe her.

Rumpleteazer spent pretty much the whole of Old Deuteronomy sitting on Mungojerrie, so cute.

During Memory Gus never turned away from Grizabella, he looked right at her the whole time. Munkus was the last to turn round which supports my theory that Demeter was abandoned by Grizabella, her mother, and Munkus is so mad at her for hurting the queen he loves.

Oh, and on that note, after the Macavity fight when the lights were out Munkus and Demeter almost kissed but Tugger interrupted them, my Silver and Gold feelings almost cannot be contained here.

They've given Skimbleshanks a pot belly...and I'm bringing back the Skimbleshanks socks theory...

Macavity had lovely eyes :D

The only thing I hate about making my advent calendar is doing an awesome doll and not being able to show anyone.

Today Cats is 31 years old.

Cats is very important to me, it is my number one musical and if I hadn't discovered it purely by accident all those years ago I honestly would be the person I am today. It opened up the world of musicals for me and gave me a life long love.

On another note it has now been 10 years since Cats closed in London and about 5 years since the UK tour ended. There's a rumour of a 2013 West End revival but I won't believe it till I see the tickets. I'm also worried they'll bring it back for 6 months and forget about it again.

A whole generation is missing out on seeing this amazing musical, bring it home!
