Mollie’s Birthday Book 2014

Hey all. These pictures will probably end up all over the Internet before I post them, so a quick post now.

Note please ask permission before using these pictures, as myself, Rosie and Claire are actually IN the picture and we probably don’t want it on every site going. If you want to use the picture or are using the picture please tweet us and inform us first. Twitter names are below. Many thanks 🙂

This weekend gone myself (@TheSatsCoUk), Rosie (@marvelousmollie) and Claire (@idekclxire), where lucky enough to be allowed backstage at Westfield London to present Mollie with her 2014 Birthday Book.

We where taken downstairs to the basement of the shopping centre to a small dressing room to chat with Mollie and present her with this years birthday book and of course the amazing £550 that you raised for Dyslexia Action.

Full details of what went down, apart from lots of hugs, selfies and chat, will be available to VIEW shortly (if you get what I mean 😉 )

Again, I want to personally thank EVERYONE who was involved with the book. Be it those who created the wonderful covers for the book and it’s sections, from those who took time to create a page or pages for the book, and also to everyone who donated. You are ALL individual and unique to this years birthday book, and watch this space for ideas on how to get involved in the 2015 book 🙂


Finest Selection : The Greatest Hits

Hey all! Hope your Monday is doing great. Just catching up with the weekend news.

Firstly, the Greatest Hits now has a title. ‘Finest Selection : The Greatest Hits‘ will be released at the start of August! A Greatest Hits Megamix video is due to be added to VEVO today, as soon as it is I’ll add it up here.

Secondly, as we revealed – but not many seemed to take notice – a few weeks back, the lead single from Finest Selection : The Greatest Hits, is called ‘What Are You Waiting For‘ which is set to premiere in the next few coming weeks – more details on that shortly!

On Saturday we attended the signing at H Samuel at Westfield London, as always the girls where in fine form! Signing and greeting the 250+ fans who managed to grab a wristband! We also had a private meeting with Mollie to hand over her birthday book and your charity money – £550!! – the meet was filmed for a forthcoming flip video and I’m awaiting pictures from the girls management. As soon as I have these I will post up what happened.

I will say that Mollie was totally taken back – as I was – with your generosity, getting £550 was an awesome achievement by the community, so thanks to every single one of you who donated! As I said more on this shortly 🙂


Mollie’s B’day Book and more!

Firstly, again, sorry for the lack of site updates. Been so busy at work, studying in the evening, plus went to the Beyonce concert on Saturday at London’s O2, what an amazing show, so if you are going you are in for an amazing experience!

I don’t think I’ve missed much, the Not Giving Up video has hit the 1m views point on Youtube. So make sure you head over there and view it! Remember its released in just over a months time, so hopefully the promo for the song will be announced shortly.

Vanessa attended the Philippine Typhoon Disasters Appeal Gala on Sunday evening with Gary, I’ve added a few pictures of the lovely Vanessa at the end of this article.

Also if you’ve not heard, this years birthday book for Mollie has an additional appeal going on, we are trying to gain as much money as we possibly can for the charity Dyslexia Action, in rather amazing start we’ve already raised £200! This is with just the help of you guys and girls in the community, we’ve had no promo from the girls mailer (yet!) and other sources, this is purely from social networking and your very awesome generosity! We appeal if you haven’t yet donated to pop over to the official JustGIving page and donate as little – or as much as you want, huge thanks 🙂

There has also been a lot of public debate recently over Dyslexia, and if it actually exists or not. I suggest if you are thinking about donating, or want to know more about this debate, then to visit this blog post which was been excellently written by Rosie.

We will be actively entering discussions with the girls management, and dyslexia action in the near future to make sure Mollie gets the book, and the charity – and everyone who donated – get the recognition you all deserve. So please donate if you can 🙂

Vanessa Birthday Book 2012 1

As you know we had a huge success with Mollie’s official 2012 birthday book which ended up with ourselves – @thesatscouk, @marvelousmollie and @claireteamsats presenting the book to Mollie in person at Birmingham Pride. We are therefore more than delighted to help spread the word about Vanessa’s birthday book and everyone involved with that. Excited? Well of course you are so here is how you can get involved!! This is a huge project being undertaken and there are many ways for you to be involved, so please read it carefully and if you have any questions please direct them to the wonderful people involved with this project as they are better placed to answer them then we are!

EVERYTHING SHOULD BE SENT TO vanessasbirthdaybook2012@gmail.com. The deadline is September 1st.

‘THE FAN MESSAGES PROJECT’
As usual, we’re looking for as many messages from fans as possible. Messages, poems, graphics, pictures are all welcome.  I’m hoping to hand make a lot of this book in order for it to be even more personalised and unique, so each page will be totally different from the last.
Due to this, I’m hoping to hand write a lot of your messages (in various fonts.. ;P) and print out any pictures/graphics etc you may send with it and stick them on your page also.  If, however, you wish for your page to all be typed, or you want to incorporate your message into a graphic or such, then that’s fine also, just make sure to let us know when you email it. 🙂

‘THE DRAWINGS PROJECT’
Any drawings you may have done over the years of Vanessa are welcome to make up the fan drawings section.  (Send these in with DRAWINGS as the subject in the email.)

‘THE TOUR PICTURES PROJECT’
Send in your favourite tour pictures from any 3 of the tours! We want your funny, cute and gorgeous ones! (Send these in with TOUR PHOTOS as the subject in the email).

‘THE TWEETS PROJECT’
Vanessa’s tweets which made you laugh (if you have any screencaps, they’d be fab!). They can be just her random tweets, her twapes, or anything else that made you smile/laugh.  (Send these in with TWEETS as the subject in the email.)

‘THE QUOTES PROJECT’
Your favourite Vanessa quotes, they can be from flips or 24/7 or What Goes On Tour or anything else you can think of.  (Send these in with QUOTES as the subject of the email.)

‘THE BEACH PROJECT’
On one of the pages we want to write “Happy Birthday Vanessa!” out of letters on the beach. This could be made out of pebbles/shells, or drawn in the sand.

ALL LETTERS ARE NOW TAKEN.
However, if you currently have a letter but realise at any point that you won’t be able to get to a beach after all, please let us know so someone else can have your letter!

For those with a letter:
All letters should be capitalised. When you’re done, take a photo (with JUST the letter in the picture) and send it in with ‘THE BEACH PROJECT’ as the subject in the email.

These are the type of things we’re looking for:
One Heather did today out of pebbles. http://twitpic.com/a64bkr
One Cat created in Cyprus a while ago: http://twitpic.com/9a9hrw

‘THE MEET TEAM SATS PROJECT’
We’re going to do a ‘MEET TEAM SATS’ section. Its basically going to be able to put faces to names…

What you need to do is email us a picture of yourself (not necessarily sats related but you’re obviously welcome to anything you want- a pic that you like) and with your picture send in a brief paragraph making sure you include all of this information

Then we’ll put it all into a factfile type thing and it will just help Vanessa get to know you abit more- she’ll know who the people who are supporting her are 🙂

At some point, i’ll be making an example page so if you’re a bit confused or unsure of the idea, dont hesitate to ask for the example on here or on my personal @hannanar 🙂  Send with ‘MEET TEAM SATS’ as the subject title for the email.
‘THE TEAM SATS’ DOGS PROJECT’
Okay, this one is fairly simple but we want as many of you as possible to get involved, it doesn’t take too much effort!
Basically, if you have a dog, we want you to take a picture of him/her with a sign that simply says ‘Happy Birthday Vanessa!’

We’re going to create a little Team Sats’ dogs page because we all know Ness loves her dogs! So this is a kind of example to what we want to see, but obviously with a sign that says ‘Happy Birthday Vanessa’ instead. 🙂 Email all of your doggy pictures (along with your twitter name) with the subject ‘Team Sats’ Dogs’ in the email.

‘THE OUT-AND-ABOUT PROJECT’
We want to make a small collage of words that make up certain song lyrics that describe Vanessa. Previously some of you may have been involved with various lyric videos for The Sats, where you hold a sign with a word on it. This is, in effect, what we’re trying to create here, but even better. We want you to actually find the words while you’re out and about. Whether it be on big bus stop posters, shop adverts, on a card in a card shop, or even on various packets.

We want this project to be fun for YOU too, and maybe a little bit challenging!

The lyrics we want to try make out are:

“Vanessa, our love for you is stronger than love itself.”

“You drain us of sadness, and fill us back up with love.”

“You’re like this beat yes, crazy and infectious.”

These are the only words still available:

-of
-you’re
-like
-yes

If you find a word we need WITHIN another word, or the wanted word has ‘ed’/’s’ etc on it, just cover it up with your hands. 😉

WE WANT YOU IN THE PICTURE TOO! It’s no use without you, we could’ve got them off google. 😛 So we want pictures of you at bus stops, in front of adverts etc etc.

We REALLY REALLY hope you get involved with this one. It is quite a demanding project, but it’s one of the more fun ones and most creative.
We just want you all to have a good crack at it, don’t give up before you’ve even tried!
You’ll be surprised with how much fun you could have with this!

There’s only really one other rule to this; NO HAND WRITING/TYPING YOUR WORD. The whole point is to find it.
If you’re really struggling to find a word, you can always grab a newspaper or a book and highlight the word in there and take a picture with it. 🙂

Any pictures of the words you take can be emailed with ‘Out-And-About Words Project’ as the email subject.

‘THE ‘I LOVE YOU BECAUSE..’ PROJECT’
So what we want you to do is take a picture of yourself with a sign saying ‘I love you because…’ followed by a reason.
This could be something like ‘You’re piff’ or ‘you inspire me’; anything you want! However, we want these to be as original as possible to avoid any repeats!

But please don’t make it too long as we need to be able to read it on the piece of paper it’s put on!  Make it bold, fancy writing, jazz it up if you want!

This should be quite an easy project that many people can get involved in.

Please email all of your pictures with ‘I LOVE YOU BECAUSE…’ as the email subject title. If you have any questions tweet or DM us on here, or tweet me on my personal @teamnessw for this project.

We really hope you get involved with all/as many as you can of these!
We want to make Vanessa’s birthday book this year the best it can be, and that can’t happen without YOUR input!

If you have any questions AT ALL about any of the above, feel free to tweet/dm us on this account, my personal @catluvsthesats, or @heatherteamness, @hannanar, @teamfranessa, @noorthesats, @teamnessw.

Much love, Team Ness xxx
