Flo Oram (itsjustflo) | 57 comments Hey again Hopefuls, it’s Flo!

Yes, I have another idea (don’t worry this will probably be the last for this year but who knows)! Basically, because Carrie loved the poster so much (she told me she’s watched the video and it’s in her room) I decided to do another project!

I’m heading down to Les Mis a few days after Carrie’s birthday, I know we all wish we could group down and go wish her a happy birthday but that can’t happen. So, my plan is to get a giant card for her (I’ve found the perfect one already) and get as many Hopefuls as possible to write her a birthday message. I will then hand write all of these.

Please please do not make them super long a) my hand will literally die and b) I want so many Hopefuls to help with this! So short is good!

Once you have your message you can get it to me by the following

twitter- twitter.com/y0itsflo

email- alwaysahopeful@gmail.com

tumblr- caution-itsafangirl.tumblr.com

I will need these by October 1st!

I’m going to try and keep this hidden from Carrie, so it’s like a surprise like the poster was!

Thanks again guys!xxx

message 31: by Flo (new)

Flo Oram (itsjustflo) | 57 comments Thank you to you guys for helping me with this, it truly means a lot! All your kind words about it really spur me on to do it and also your messages to Carrie are the cutest! I don't know how many of you know me from the other project I did back in April! So if you are new, I filmed Carrie's reaction to it (I will do with this one as well!) But if you want to see what kind of reaction she gives it can be found here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QL5Hf...

message 40: by Darby (new)

Darby | 217 comments Is it cool if I send step by step instructions for drawing one of my unicorns. They literally require no talent whatsoever, so if you can't art, you can still do it. And they don't take up much space, which is a plus. I'll send it on Twitter after I hear back from you <3

Flo Oram (itsjustflo) | 57 comments The card I planned sadly has to be scraped as Carrie announced the dates that she is away from Les Mis and unfortunately one of the dates is the one i'm planning to go to!

I'm so so so so sorry but there is nothing I can do unless we can rebook.

So for now stop sending messages, as it can't happen.

I'm sorry, please don't hate me.

Don't worry about it! I'm sure everyone else will understand and definitely won't hate you :)

Although I was thinking that maybe we could organize something else, like a video or a digital collage or something that we could send to her via twitter or tumblr instead. Would anyone be interested in doing something like that? xx


message 43: by Flo (new)

Flo Oram (itsjustflo) | 57 comments Sure thing!


message 44: by Ash (new)

Ash (ashiew) Hey it is okay Flo. No one hates you! :) I understand completely. It isn't your fault. And plus why would people get mad, you only had the best of intentions in mind. :) *pinkie*

And Catalina gave me an idea, is there a way we could still send her those messages via internet? Idk we could use tumblr or twitter? Maybe someone could make a collage type of thing with some pictures maybe with all of the birthday messages. So instead of redoing all of our messages we could just transfer the idea to a video or something instead of a card. Or was that what you meant Catalina? Either way let me know if this is even a good idea. I don't know. It is clear you are upset Flo so I hope the idea will help or at least make you feel better. I hope you all have a lovely day :) <3


message 45: by Flo (new)

Flo Oram (itsjustflo) | 57 comments Ashley: I'm more than happy to do that! I'm just sad I won't get to see her reaction to it but hey if everyone else is up for this I can!x


message 46: by Ash (new)

Ash (ashiew) Whatever you want to do Flo :) I just thought your message sounded a bit sad so I wanted to send another possible option your way to make you happy :) But if you still want a reaction we can always find another way :) Never give up hope haha :)


message 47: by Flo (new)

Flo Oram (itsjustflo) | 57 comments Ashley: This is true! I'll think it over as all of this is just new information! thank you once again!


message 48: by Ash (new)

Ash (ashiew) No problem :) Just don't let it stress you out. And also it is very kind of you to even plan all of this out in the first place; I can only imagine how much work something like this takes :) A true Hopeful :)


message 49: by Michaela (new)

Michaela (kalabear) | 1 comments Hey I have literally just joined this group and read this thread.

Maybe you could ask Carrie if she would film her reaction to the video whilst watching it? So you can get an instant reaction? I don't know if that would work as I don't know how much communication you have with Carrie but I just wondered of that might be an option? Sorry if it isn't.

:).

Flo Oram (itsjustflo) | 57 comments I forgot to tell you guys! I'm going another weekend so the card will be back on so you can send messages :-)
