Details of swap:
This is a Bollywood Swap and will have anything to do with Bollywood or an India theme if you like that better.  If you research through google and youtube, it's a blast AND you'll find out more about it.  I recommend the "Chaiyya Chaiyya" video for just pure fun.  "Bombay Dreams" the broadway musical is a good source too.

Here's a link to the book alluded to in the previous thread.  I have not seen this book but I think I'm going to get it Smiley

wow..this is a fantastic idea for a swap..sigh..my brain is daydreaming already about the wonderful stuff I could make.
But alas..painting and knitting are my things..I could probably make painting apply..but wish I were stronger in sewing and beading.
I'll rumage around in my head and on the net and see if I could figure out things to make.

The wonderful thing about this swap is that you can do almost any type of craft...in fact, I think painting is perfect for this because Bollywood is so much about the fantastic images.  Also, I think you could come up w/ something really cool in knit - the key is to choose the right colors - bright and vibrant.

Too funny!  My friend JUST told me about that movie yesterday.  I've heard Monsoon Wedding is great too.  I tried to get them from the library but they were checked out.  I'm probably going to have to purchase...from what I understand, it's worth it.  I've also heard that Dil Se isn't so great a movie but the music and visuals attached are so great that it makes up for it.  Smiley
