What's so bad down the rabbit hole

It can't be that bad down the rabbit hole...

Average rabbit, a skittish creature
Twitching away each second 
until a sudden sound
or movement
sends it scampering for the bushes. 

Why the bushes, sir.hare?
What's so bad down the rabbit hole?...

Where to find ridiculous crap we need

I adore browsing fellow bloggers "favorites" posts. What I don't adore....having to hunt on my own trying to find where to purchase similar items. Here's some of those "I personally feel everyone should love this" stuff....and where to actually buy!

Unicorn head wallmount
Love the colors, however think a more taxidermy look would be far better. Creepy? Not some mystical BS. ...just a cut off stuffed unicorn head.

There's far more ridiculous stuff I feel are necessities. Feel free to share some crazy finds of yours!

Duo lyra gingers

Tried out duo Lyra last class of this session.  My partner happened to be a fellow ginger classmate.

I'm blessed with crazy arm strength. So I was the base for the acro moves. 
Never did join cheerleading knowing I'd be the girl catching, not being thrown.  

Overall it was surprisingly easy to balance with eachother. 

On the contrary,  I refuse to get into acrobatics. My safety depends on myself and another person. Not risking that. Nope nope nope. 

Wouldn't mind trying it out once more...

Winter love

Call me crazy but Valentine's Day is my favorite holiday. Cute decor, crafting Valentines, Candy Hearts. These are definitely a few of my favorite things. 

The CandyHearts really need to work on the candy stamping, wouldn't you agree? 

With each holiday comes crafting. Never got the chance to send out my Christmas cards. I'm already on my game with the valentines. 
Here's some rough drafts

If you'd like a hand crafted Valentine by yours truly, shoot me an email with your address.

The Greatest Showman fact and fiction

      About a year ago I had spent an unnecessary amount of time doing indepth research focused on the origin of the Circus. I tend to occasionally get hung up on a subject of nonsense from time to time... 

When I heard about a movie coming out focused on the creation of the Circus era,(The Greatest Showman) I was puuumped!

      There's not much need for a 
"Spoiler Alert"

      Hugh Jackman took on the part of P.T. Barnum. Opening Barnum's American museum in 1841. Located on the corner of Boradway in New York. 

The museum included wax figures replicating the famous, taxidermy animals, bullshit artifacts  (Such as the skeleton of a mermaid), and the well known freak show gang.

Many characters from the film portrayed real people involved with the original freak show.

Why was the museum really burnt down?

The movie shows a random mob of drunks protesting the freak show. Starting the arsen to rid the "monsters".

In was caused for political reasons. 

A group of eight southerners known as The Confederate Army of Manhattan created multiple arsens in New York. The plan was to overwhelm firefighting resources within the city.

Was Zac Efron supposed to be Bailey?

No. Zac Efron was just thrown into yet another musical because he's Zac Efron. Bailey had a circus of his own (Cooper and Bailey Circus). It wasnt until the 1880's that the two decided to team up.

Creating The Barnum and Bailey Circus.
Also known as...
 The Greatest Show on Earth

Wait...What about the Ringling Bros?

- Ringling Bros circus didn't opened until the 1870's. The show consisted of tje seven brothers each performed various circus acts.

- Within the next decade, the brothers caught the eye of Barnum & Bailey. Merging with eachother as one circus in the 1880's. 

Current day Ringling Bros & Barnum and Bailey Circus
Shut down in 2017 by the Animal Rights Movement. You can thank PETA for the 36-years of protests. Thank you PETA, for making my dreams of performing that much harder.
