Rocktober Music Fest – 2019 – and other October Oddities – Rock Paper Scissors and World Card Making Day

I hope I did a reasonably good job of connecting yesterday’s World Smile Day and the Rocktober Music Fest with James Taylor and “Your Smiling Face.”
Today I have triple duty with the #RMF, World Card Making Day and the Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt of “-tast-“   Let’s see…
Looking back on our concerts, I found the Rock Paper Scissors tour done by Peter Gabriel and Sting in 2016!

I wasn’t so sure about this one because while I like Genesis (the band Peter Gabriel was with) and The Police (the band Sting was with) and there are a few of their individual songs that I like, I didn’t know what a concert with just the two of them would be like. 

To top it off, when I was reading about the tour, it said that Peter would be singing some of Sting’s songs and vice versa.

                                                                                                                                                  You know how it is when you are used to a song a certain way and when someone else sings it, it’s not quite right?   

Actually it turned out to be a very good show.  Not “fantastic” and not sure that I would see them again but glad we did this time.  
A bit of the concert, one of my favorites, “Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic.”

So, with Rock, Paper and Scissors I can connect to World Card Making Day because I listen to Rock while I work with Paper and Scissors to make my cards.  This is what I am working on right now in preparation for the holidays:
Some new gift card holders.  They’ll soon be up in the Etsy Shop.  So, how’d I do?  Was I able to connect all three reasonably?  Happy Saturday everyone.

  1. Janet,

    What a fun way of tieing together a couple of blog hops! šŸ˜‰ The concert sounded super cool. You saw two big names on the same stage. You have a treasure of memories wrapped in mewsic. Your Christmas gift card holders are adorable. I hope they do well in your Etsy shop! šŸ™‚ Have a rocktastic week!

      Thanks Cathy! Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. I don’t like to clutter up people’s in boxes with too many posts in one day. Can’t believe that it is almost time for the holidays!

    Fantastic job connecting the three prompts together! I agree with you on the way we get used to a song being sung a certain way and then someone else trying to sing it just doesn’t seem right. That picture of Sting you chose was perfect!! I love that song too. Your cards are adorable, and right in time for Christmas planning!!!

    I think you did a wonderful job! I know what you mean when you are used to hearing a song one way, and then hear it another. With doing the battle of the bands twice a month, I am a little used to it, but I can the experience being somewhat different at a live concert.
