So, what does everything think about this idea? A two-item swap with one item themed on a circus main attraction (high-wire act, lion tamer, bear in a tutu, elephant rider, etc.) and the second item themed on a famous side show act (bearded lady, conjoined twins, sword-swallower, giant, midgets, etc.) The idea being that you are creating a whole performance. The items don't necessarily have to go together, but can, (a painted diptych, set of dolls, set of throw pillows, stuffies, jewelry set). Or they can be mismatched, (an art doll and a cross stitch, a painting and a purse, an altered tin and a set of greeting cards.) Any thoughts? Oh yes, and I would probably need a co-organizer.  Grin

I think this is a great idea! I would love to participate if the items will be medium or small.

I am thinking that it should be a couple of mediums perhaps. I'd like the crafting time to not be longer than four weeks if possible.

sounds good. My grandfather, when he was young in Holland, used to be a tightrope walker and he also had pet monkeys. Cheesy
So I would be interested.

Oh that's awesome! I have certainly had fantasies of being part of a circus. I have stage fright though so I must live vicariously through art to experience these other worlds. Cheesy

*** I do not know when this will happen yet. I'm going to end up being too busy this July/August to run this. Perhaps after... we shall see. Stay-tuned! ***
