Hmmmm, oddities is very very tempting... if someone wanted, say, a two-headed something crocheted or knitted...  but I really need to finish (or at least start) my other swap... but there is a holiday coming up... but how much can I really get done in one day?  *ponders*

i have a pinterest board that is all conjoined twins. no pictures that are sad though, just dolls skelletons and pendants and such. here is the link for inspiration as i looked on every conjoined twin pic on pinterest just left out icky ones. i even saw a conjoined strong man doll now that was interesting!

http://pinterest.com/artista83/my-favorite-oddity-conjoined-twins/
maybe this will help creative juices!

yippeee! glad you are coming into this one!

yeah i had a bunch of people follow that board last night! i keep wondering who might be craftster peoples! it is hard to tell when it is their real names without craftster nicknames, i am sooo curious i love to know who likes what! if someone is following me, do let me know...unless you are secretly stalking....but do tell me after then? lol

i have a side show one too, has a bearded lady doll example. i really have to find more stuff for that board so after i check all the new posts that i missed, i will add more side show stuff, saw many side show posters that are cool! i bet this is going to be the funnest swap! i also want to make a wierd board with specimen bottles, but i make sure they arent ones that would tear jerk me or anyone else. still should be neat though. i swear what comes to mind is a show i watched that unfortunately got cancelled called carnival....did anyone else use to watch that show? remember the wierd guy that was behind the curtain and the thing that was in the side cart that used to dissapear at will? the thing in the bottle that opened its eyes. i keep getting those images in my head! i wish they would come back with the next season as it didnt have a resolution and i wanna know what happened!!!!!!!!!!!!

yeah i totally pmed after i realized conjoined has to be my number one favorite interesting thing. i put something else first on my list, i wonder if they ever had a conjoined one of what i put? it is the monkey mermaid thingy....oh i cant wait to get partners!!!!!!!! this is soooo exciting!!!!! i am totally stoked to do this swap!!!!!! i hope this becomes one of those "goes for more than one round" swaps!!!!!

I suppose I really should start to utilize my pinterest. I've not really evolved beyond tumblr.

I love classic side show art! My favorite episode of Torchwood is where the side show people escape from the old film footage and run amok! Also a big fan of Penn&Teller and other folks who try an embrace the freaks and geeks culture.

I'm so excited to join this swap!

Ahhh, this sounds so interesting. I went to a really cool Halloween show called Theatre Bizarre in Detroit last October and there were all sorts of sideshow acts. 5 Levels/floors of entertainment (it was at the historic masonic temple) and everyone dresses up. Some of the costumes were so inventive. I saw fire jugglers, acrobats, people getting hooked up (exactly like it sounds), and all sorts of other things. I know I missed some of the acts since everything was going on at once but it was so sweet! I took all sorts of pictures.
One of my fascinations is with pinheads. Someone was dressed like one and I got my pic taken with him lol I was jazzed!
Has anyone seen the movie Freaks from 1932? If not, you should check it out. It is an old black and white film with actual "freaks" who made the movie.

If you hurry, I can make an exception.  :)


I am going to try my best to get everyone their partners early today but I am at work, and that seems to complicate things. If I don't get them to you until tonight, I will add a couple of days for sending.

Okay everyone! I posted partners on the front page. I am now sending out partners information.

For this week's check-in, please acknowledge your partner and answer this question:

Who would make a better pet-jackalope or two headed calf?

Post by: MissingWillow on July 08, 2013 11:46:58 AM
Thanks for the awesome partner, kittykill!  Hi there coocoosnest.   :)  I think I'll go with the two headed calf.  Unless it's a bottlefed calf.  Then twice the work!

Pottermouth is my partner!!

A jackelope of course....My greyhound would love that lol


Title: Re: Side Show Swap: Send Out: 8/8/2013 (Sign Up CLOSED)
Post by: kittykill on July 08, 2013 12:05:29 PM
Everyone should have your partners info. I did it real quick at work so if not, let me know and I will send it ASAP.

I think a jackalope would be kind of pokey to snuggle to, but make a great security system.

Although...you might get more milk from a two headed calf!  :D

Post by: grasshopper on July 08, 2013 12:11:13 PM
I am voting for a two-headed jackalope!  I think I would get LOTS of exercise chasing him around the yard!! This way, that way, this way, that way....I really should get back to work!!

Hello my partner - roses are red *waves*

Ooh I had to google a jackalope - I've never heard of one! They look cute :) one of those defo...

Although so would a two headed calf... Ill have both too!!

Hello grasshopper!

oh, jackalope, definitely. I grew up in Montana and they would show up on random walls everywhere!


Title: Re: Side Show Swap: Send Out: 8/8/2013 (Sign Up CLOSED)
Post by: Ludi on July 08, 2013 01:27:59 PM
Hooray, my partner is cackle!  :)

I think a two-headed calf would make a better pet, because the Jackalope is a wild and difficult to tame critter.  Except the stuffed kind, which are very docile.

I totally have to go with the two headed calf. It's a twofer!
Jackalopes are pretty awesome but I am sucker for two headed everything.

Hi sweetyetevil! I love partner-assigning day; meeting someone new is my favourite part. Probably should go read your questionnaire now.

As far as choosing between the two pets, I'd have to go with the jackalope because I think of Bloom County for some reason. Or was that a Basselope?



Title: Re: Side Show Swap: Send Out: 8/8/2013 (Sign Up CLOSED)
Post by: kittykill on July 08, 2013 03:35:46 PM
Hee hee...basselope. I forgot about that.


Title: Re: Side Show Swap: Send Out: 8/8/2013 (Sign Up CLOSED)
Post by: Smeddley on July 08, 2013 03:50:28 PM
Awwww, basselope!  I want a basselope!

But I'd settle for a jackalope, though he might be put off but the "taxidermied" wolpertinger head I got in a swap...  Seriously awesome thing, if I can pimp out old craft swap items here:

https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=391013.msg4648070#msg4648070 (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=391013.msg4648070#msg4648070)

Thank you kittykill for my awesome partner, MissingWillow!  I was all set to say I'd choose the two-headed calf but only because my dogs like to eat rabbit poop too much.  Then I thought about what would happen if they ever got to see, smell and taste cow poop, so I change my answer to the jackalope!  At least it's "treats" are bite sized.  ;D

i think a two headed calf would get too noisy ... so i will go with the majestic jackelope!

I tried to go shopping today and only found a couple of things. Anyone a Sharpie guru? I got the 12 pack of markers and they are labeled 80's Glam limited edition colors. I didn't realize they ever changed the colors. And, yes, I should have got the really big set. Can't wait to get the rest of my supplies and get started!

Hmmm, jackalope. I just did one for an ATC theme. I have one of these sweet balls of fluff and a phoenix who provided the feather. I didn't know jackalopes also have a birds tail.

ACK! That is one fuzzy jackelope!

Just a reminder my lovelies-this swap is for a medium item. You certainly can spoil your partner but it is not require or expected and don't be super duper sad if they can't do the same.

In other news, the post office better deliver my goods that I need to start crafting!

Yesterday I took my shopping list and headed off to Hobby Lobby.  I hadn't been in the store 5 minutes till the power was knocked out by the storm. They herded everyone to the front where we waited and waited.  After a long while they finally asked us to leave.  When I got home the power was out here too so DH and I went out for dinner and margaritas.  ;D   As of now we still don't have power but I think Hobby Lobby does so I'm going back to try again.  Wish me luck. :)

Speaking of Jackalopes, there are really rabbits in the world that have fungal growths that sometimes look like antlers. And the Jackalope shown earlier, which is a spoiler for me(that's ok rockingbear), is also called a Wolpertinger. It's a low German word, kind of Amish-y around here.

I'm not in this swap.........but happened to see your post and just wanted to say, Kudos to you for standing up to Westboro (I don't think they deserve to be called a Church)! It's not easy to do, and they are so vociferous!  They came all the way to Idaho to protest at the funeral of a young woman who died serving her country.  Pathetic - but the Patriot Guard riders came through and put up a 'shield' of flags to protect the family and mourners.

One of my cats peed in my box of project supplies because I stupidly left it on the floor.  Thankfully not the actual project pieces in progress, but some of the materials, so I'll have to slightly change my plan....

I have only just started! I picked up an item that was very hard to find yesterday at an antique mall, that's not really a hint, it's just a supply I needed for the project.  ;)

I am quite excited about this swap, I will be using all sorts of skills I have not used before.

i got my supply in the mail and now i dont know what to do with it! it doesnt go with what i am half way done with, i keep trying to think of a way to incorporate it. i totally am saving a picture of the thing i am halfway done with. i had to hold my breath while making it alot of the time lol. i lovvveee how it is turning out so far and i hope i wont mess up while working on the rest of it bc i looovvvee it so far and i dont think i could do it again lol.

I had to scrap my first idea, but I think I like my new idea better.


This week's check in question! What would be your sideshow act/special talent?

I would probably be the tattooed lady (duh) or a fire swallower.  :D

I too would be a tattooed lady, but other than that, I am SERIOUSLY pigeon-toed.  I can keep the front of my body stationary, and turn my foot almost 180 degrees...I can also walk like a old windup toy, foot over foot with my feet turned in.

Don't worry about it, cackle.  Like I said, I was so paranoid about running out of time I spent all the past few days working on it!  I kind of get obsessed with projects anyway, and when they're for a swap, add paranoia to obsession and there I go!   :o

hello everyone!!! im back in action!!! hope i havent missed too much!!! :)

how is everyone coming along in their crafting???

honestly i need to get my butt in gear ... i have my materials and i know what i planned on making but i have this other idea that i think would be a little cooler, and definitely more unusual ... im just not 100% sure how to execute it ... but i think i might be putting too much thought into it ... it probably would be really simple to alter the things i need to in order to make idea #2 feasible ...

Curious...

My DH asked about what I was hunched over for the better part of a day and after I explained it he replied, "Good luck with that." Me, being an Aries, took that as a challenge and told him to stuff it.

still working on project. this is very hard for me to do as my adhd tottttalllly makes me consecutively work until something is done, usually an all day or all day for two days. bc i change crafts so frequently and get bored with sameness. been plucking working on this one for a while now its crazy how much goes into it though it so far has two things used to make it. i never tried making one before though i am sure most people that craft do alot, but i am doing it the tedious way....

i have more ideas in my head to craft so i will be happy when this element is done! i have other components to it i want to try!

the stuff i am making is based on my partners likes so not sure how to judge oddness quite on them ....yet anyway lol

My goodness you guys are fast.  As for myself, I've hit a little snag. I'm sure I'll figure it out (she said while sweating bullets).  Other things I have pondered the last couple of days are: why didn't I pay more attention in geometry class, why does everyone in this house still expect meals to be served during swaps, and why is all the first aid supplies so far away from my work area?  ::)

uh oh, carpel tunnel. i hope you are ok! bigggg squishies (oh in case you didn't know i call hugs squishies lol. i make up word meanings alot) 

wanna hear a funny?....ok so the making up words thing hasn't always worked out for me. when i was in high school i used to say "sniff" instead of the word "smell" as in "you sniff good!" 
 
unfortunately i am a bit impulsive and speak without thinking bc one day i walked into class and exclaimed "I SNIFF GLUE!"...
you see someone had a bottle of rubber cement open and i was wondering why the room smelled like that and was proclaiming to my friends that the room smelled like glue! of course the teacher didn't realize that sniff meant smell and sent me to the counselor to talk, as my friends rolled around on the floor laughing bc they knew i don't actually sniff glue and that i was just talking about a smell!

other things i say include: pinkelish-purple-fluffel-stuffs (although i have no idea what that one means lol except that i am happy!  and oshtibodo-wojno? which is a word i made up in the car when i was a kid and almost swore in front of my parents but caught myself after i said oh sh...lol

one of my best friends in high school got the nickname ISH bc he was always eating sweedish fish candy and every time i saw him we would great each other with a proclaimed "ISH!" and a hug!

so remember everyone...when you are crafting, close up the glue! lmao

hope i made ya giggle this morn!  i tried out a new tool to sculpt with and am seeing if i can use it to make a lil mini related to this swap to add to my thing for fun....

well, off to get me some more mojo (coffee)

doing as well as can be (for a monday ::))

crafting's going in the right direction...and my craftroom sniffs smells like a combination of adhesives, air-freshener (which did not cover the smell of adhesives), and acetone. 

kittykill, those are some interesting clues about the swap project, no? ;)

How are you doing? How's the crafting going?

I'm doing smashing, thanks for asking, and the crafting is going along swimmingly. If I find two things (one of which is somewhere buried in a bin of original Polly Pocket junk), I should be about done. It's almost at the point where I can step away and stare at it, then freak out and wonder what I did. Maybe I'll ask cackle for her professional opinion.

I'm almost afraid to say I'm doing well because I don't want to jinx it.  I'm so glad I decided to scrap my first idea and go for this one.  I like it so much better.  Since I've never tried anything like this before I'm making two at the same time just keeping them a step apart.  That way if I do something on the first one that I regret I can use the backup.  It's like my real reality undo button but with only one level of undos.

How are you doing? How's the crafting going?

I'm doing smashing, thanks for asking, and the crafting is going along swimmingly. If I find two things (one of which is somewhere buried in a bin of original Polly Pocket junk), I should be about done. It's almost at the point where I can step away and stare at it, then freak out and wonder what I did. Maybe I'll ask cackle for her professional opinion.


I'm around if you need me!  ;D

Hey guys, I am at the hospital today with my dad and trying to do everything on my kindle,  but I started a thread for the gallery.

Thanks!

One more hurdle and then it'll be finished. Not going to post a teaser but I will say that making it involved (in no particular order) wool, shrinky plastic, ribbon, brads, thread, paper, foam board, ink, vintage sequins, glue, paper, and something from this pile o' stuff:



And no, it's not a hoopla.  :D

I was hoping to finish this early but looks I might be shipping out closer to the 8th. I am leaving Sunday for Vegas and will be gone until the 6th so I might not be able to check in here. Hoping I can get done before I leave but I might also be able to get some extra crafting time in during our drive (Chicago to Vegas, yikes!).

The only good joke I can think of right now is REALLY inappropriate. 

I got tons of work done on my project, so I'm hoping to finish up this weekend...I'm not making any promises, though.  I do tend to over-analyze everything I make, so there's always a lot of adding, and redoing, and so on....

Most of the jokes I can think of are pretty inappropriate... hmmmm...

Two men walk into a bar.
The first man says "I'll have H2O."
The second man says "I'll have H2O too."
The second man dies.

*whomp whomp*

(bad science puns are the worst)

No work on my project the last few days, my hands are shot.  I figure I'll let them rest a few days (and catch up on my sleep) and then be ready to go.

ok so i just read a whole bunch of different websites from people that had this surgery and i am really scared now...eeeekk. litterally will be on broths for a couple weeks! sigh...well...hopefully i can use my aunts laptop from bed. i have to wait for the call about what time tomorrow so i will be able to check in bf i go in to surgery. worried mostly about nursing after if i will be in pain. but i did a lot of reading and i should be able to 4-6 hrs after surgery. whan t i dont get is how the heck on only broth and jello for weeks will i make enough to nurse didi! well...on the up side i will probably loose that after baby weight.

i keep checkin in cant wait till you guys see what i made for lanikins! i am super happy with it!!! teeheeee...the suspense!

i am too chicken to ask to keep anything ludi! lol


Title: Re: Side Show Swap: Send Out: 8/8/2013 (Sign Up CLOSED)
Post by: artista83 on July 31, 2013 08:37:02 PM
i am soo excited about this swap! i hope i feel up to being able to check in from bed. i dont want to miss all the cool stuff in the gallery. prob be out a couple days for rest, but bored after so will deff ask aunt if i can use her laptop! whoot!

has anyone else mailed yet? i am addicted to looking at the galleries lol!

i will def be on when waiting for the surgeon to call, i am trying to distract myself so i dont get to anxious. they said it will be later in the day so hopefully will get to pop in tomorrow beforehand.

lalalalalaa im bored atm. if you are on msg me if ya want.

so i wanna hear more sideshow jokes!
out of curiosity, has anyone been to a sideshow bf? i havent but i hear there are alot in cali and florida?

if you could go to a sideshow, what would be the act you would want to see most?

i think mine would be the curiosities. like the fiji mermaid or whatnot that they would have as display thingies. i wonder what types of things they might have in sideshows now that they didnt have back in the day?

i tried watching that sideshow series. they had glass eaters and strongmen and such. i really do wish as i said bf that they would do carnivale' again!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

oh! and i would want to see the card reader fortune teller person! i think that would be interesting!
they have a palm reader place semi close to wear i live but i have never been there. and a shop i go to (sells pretty stones and runes and such) has psyckics omg why cant i spell it right? anyway i went to one at my high school senior party many years ago. my question was if i would marry my high school sweet heart. she said no...she was right! although we did date again years later in life! lmao

has anyone ever been to one and had it be right? lol well off to browse i guess! gotta keep my mind from wandering into scaredycat mode

Good luck with your surgery, artista83!  I grew up in Florida and loved the sideshow banners and barker.  They had it at the fair every year, it was the most exciting part of the midway.  My parents never let me go in when I was young but I did when I got older.  I remember lots of stuff in jars, the fat lady, bearded lady, the half man half woman.  It was really dark inside.

Post by: coocoosnest on August 01, 2013 07:21:23 AM
I'm sending you good thoughts too artista83.  If they won't give you your gallbladder they should give you any stones that may be there.  I had that surgery way back in the early eighties and they gave me the biggest stone.  It was as big around as a quarter and perfectly round.  It was really cool to look at but I kept it for awhile and then threw it away.  Now I can think of all kinds of things I could have made with it so you need to ask them to give you anything they can.

I keep tinkering, but I hope to finish today. There is football playing today, so it should be easy to sneek off and work on grasshopper's goodie.

oh yeah dont worry i am definitely done smokin! we never smoked around her bf that either. but yeah i wanted to quit and this made it easier to do so. still workin on getting hubby to quit.

i posted pics in the gallery of the siemese old women doll i made lanikins. i forgot to take pics of the painted tatooed lady box i made her and the box took the most time to make! it isnt the box in one of the pics that the doll is on, i used a different box. i hope lanikins pictures are better, as my pictures are a bit blurry, i think only 1 or 2 turned out clear. i couldnt tell which from the thumbnails so i uploaded like 9.

YAY...sounds like all went well ;D Good luck On the smoking...I've quit 7 times, and am currently working on it again.

I'm sorry I suck...I work in a very hectic job with a very unique clientele, so my work week was hell. I have pics, and will get them posted.  Now to see if my 'putter is all better...fingers crossed!!!!!

Be careful, guys!

INHALATION HEALTH RISKS AND SYMPTOMS OF EXPOSURE
Dizziness may occur at 200 PPM: progressively higher levels can cause irritation of the respiratory tract, drunkenness, nausea, incoordination,unconsciousness and even asphyxiation in confined poorly ventilated areas.

Tetrachloroethylene has been shown to increase rate of spontaneously occurring malignant tumors in certain lab rats and mice. Other long-term inhalation studies in rats failed to show tumorigenic response. Epidemiology studies are limited and have not established an association between tetrachloroethylene exposure and cancer. Did not cause birth defects in animals.
Birth defects unlikely. Prolonged exposure above OSHA permissible limits may result in liver and kidney damage

Oh, I usually limit my E6000 time in a well ventilated area...this time I just got a little TOO into my project ;D

It is a really long story, but we got a 9 year old rescue cat this weekend.  She is a major cuddlebug, so my crafting time was a bit limited, but I will be able to send out on the 8th.  Once the minikins get back from their dad's, she'll have some new people to cuddle with.

I'm still hoping to be on time, the problem with my wrists is flaring up (as far as I know, they're cysts that swell and then mysteriously disappear, it's pretty predictable - this should be day 2 of about 14 days, with the last three days so painful it keeps me up at night, and then I just wake up one morning with absolutely no pain at all... it's really weird) but for now only the left one so if I hurry...  :D

My mail lady just called to see if we'd be home this afternoon because she has a package for me.  I'm thinking it's my sideshow goodie from coocoosnest.  So excited!  (and isn't living in a small town occasionally fascinating?)
