the 70th Anniversary Year ... The Wizard of Oz & Gone With the Wind


What a year 1939 was.  It was the year that saw the planet plunged into war and it was the year that saw not one, but two films make an impact on us all that would still last until today.

You must be living under a rock if you don't know the two films I mean, my two all time favourite movies ... The Wizard of Oz and Gone With the Wind.

So, in honour of this momentous event, I thought I might propose a few challenges, celebrating these amazing films.

In the next week, I'll get the first badge for the first challenge done.  I will open the challenge for 20 folks, if I can get twenty.  If, by some major miracle, there are more folks wanting to play then I'll open the challenge up for some more.

So, if you want to make an art doll, a mini quilt, mix media you cat or pop a piece of mail art into the post then this is something fun.  Family teams (mum and daughters/sons/sisters/aunties/friends whatever, can team up to play and then post the pics to a flickr album I'll have organised along with the buttons.  There will be at least two swaps, one will be a christmas decoration swap.  You will have to make two christmas decorations based on either the Wizard of Oz or Gone With the Wind and then post them off to your buddy in time for christmas.  If we are all having too much fun, then maybe we keep it going in the new year but considering there is only me so far ... we'll see what transpires.

Okay, the first challenge will be called "The Tin Man's Heart".  Because it's the first challenge, I'll say you can make it in whatever style you feel comfortable with, but nothing bigger than 6 inches (roughly 15cm for all of us metric folks).  I'll take folks wanting to be part of the challenge from now until the 30th of June.  So if you want to sign up, please leave a comment or send me an email and let me know!!

Oh, btw check out the Amazon links if you want to order the amazing special editions that have been done for the films, I am drooling already!
