Wicked Circus Swap

Microjivvy avert your eyes!

Is the coast clear?

Has she looked away?


First of all you must immediately go and check out You will be completely gobsmacked by the miniature maddnes!

I have no idea where all my time is going. I swear I've hit some sort of time warp. Anywho, I spent this week finishing up an altered Altoid Tin for the Wicked Circus Swap over on craftster. Seriously... check out the gallery here.

Here's my wee thing, on it's way this very evening, to jivvy.

The flags have been improved since I took the exterior shots but you get the gist.

Seeing trapeze artists and tightrope walkers has always given me the heebies! This poor gal is plunging to her death in front of a horrified crowd (actually I think most of them are drunk so maybe they aren't so horrified).

I sure hope my partner likes it!


  1. well, if she doesn't i'll take it!!! that is FABULOUS!! but you know how i feel about circusy stuff...

  2. THAT IS SO AWESOME. I has awesome envy.

  3. UGH! Fabulous? Awesome? Those were the words I was going to use!! Well in any case it is spectacular and I'm so glad you posted it cause God knows it takes an eternity to get to it's destination from your house! ;) I love it and I know microjivvy will too!!!

  4. Omigoodness... She'll LOVE it! This is so snazzy! Heading over to see the miniature madness myself...


  5. I love the tiny cannon. Did you make it??

  6. Thanks guys! I did make the cannon. Don't tell anyone but it's just rolled up paper with an eyelet popped in the end ;)

  7. This is awesome Knickertwist! Did you make the tent out of papier mache? How does it stand up?

  8. Oh, I do love it.

    I wish everyone could see it in person, because pictures don't do justice to the exterior (which garnered a "whoa!" from Mr. Jivvy and Mr. Jivvy is very stingy with his "whoas").

    This was my first swap and I'm sure I've been spoiled for all other swaps which are to follow.
