(I apologize in advance if this is not in the right forum)

Hello Fellow Crafters,

I am student currently pursuing my BFA in Fine Arts. In one of my courses for the semester, I am to do a 16-week long project of my own design. The project is to show how our pieces progress or change over time. My proposal for the project is to send one of my stuffed monsters out into the world and track his journey through a blog. I am looking for people willing to take him and document his travels with me. The plan is I will make a schedule of where he will go and I will coordinate who gets him when and who they send him to next. Since we are all craft-minded people I thought it would be nice to have the participants make something to send along with him or write in a scrapbook or something.

I was hoping to get my monster to travel as far as possible, but with the time constraints I think residents of the US or Canada would probably work best. Also, people with cameras and, preferably photography experience, would be great since I would post photos you took of him in your town on the blog.

I think this should be a really fun project and if you're willing to be a part of it, please contact me.

Thanks!


(The little green guy is the one who's going to be making the journey)

I would like to be in on this too! I will PM you tomorrow to see if you are interested in sending to me (I reside in both Idaho/Oregon) when I have my computer back and I am not writing you from my tiny phone. Smiley

Hi all!

Thanks again for everyone who has expressed interest. I am still looking for a few more places to send him, but I want to make sure I have a variety of destinations. The people interested are currently from: Arizona, Tennessee, Ohio, Texas, Oregon, Rhode Island, Illinois, New York, Kentucky, Minnesota, and Florida and from Canada, Vancouver and Toronto. If anyone from any other region is interested, I'm still looking for a couple more people.

I really wanted to send him around the world, but considering the project only lasts 16 weeks, I don't think I'll have the time. If I do extend the project past the actual assignment (which  was already considering) I'll definitely keep you in mind!

I am in Beaumont, TX about an hour from Louisiana, which I have a friend there that would meet me to take pics just for kicks.
We can postage stamp decorate him right?  LOL
