Pray for us if you read this...

We're headed for a Lock-In tonight with our Krew. We will be creating some new shows but the main thing we will be doing is rehearsing for an audition at the local public school for their talent show. We will be performing Carmen's "No Monsters" in black light. I'm not 100% confident that we'll pass auditions because of these type of lyrics...

When I was just a little kid I saw a scary movie
About as crazy lunatic, you see
He tried to kill these people on vacation with an axe
Then I'd imagine that this dude was after me
While laying in my bed that night, afraid and wide awake
I promise you I saw a shadow move
But when I felt an evil spirit, that was it
I knew right then exactly what to do
I took authority in Christ
All fear flew away
I stood bold as a lion, and ran it off when it heard me say
(What did you say)

Don't want no monsters in my house tonight
Don't want no monsters in my house
You won't get me screaming,
You're nothing but a demon
It's time for you to go now
I am a temple of the Holy Ghost
And I'm protected by the Lord of Hosts
Get out in the name of Jesus Christ
'Cause I don't want no monsters
In my house tonight


Pray that His Word would not go out void.

P.S. I'm going to try to get video of this show tonight and post it here soon!

Our Newest PVC Stage

Our team has always used a stage made of PVC for budget reasons.  I've reconfigured it a few times over the years.  The one we have now is the one I like the best so far.  Someone asked me to share it with them so I thought I would post it here in case anyone else was interested.

First of all there are 3 parts to the finished stage and one person could put it together alone, but two make it easier. There are two poles that go across the middle horizontally to hold everything together. And there is the actual stage part that folds up like an accordion.

Here it is from the side folded up.
Here it is unfolded and the two long pieces placed horizontally in the back.  One at the top and one lower.  This second bar really adds to the stability of the whole stage and keeps puppeteers from moving the back curtain as they go in and out.


Here is how we add the curtains.
Our curtains are in 4 parts.  The front, 2 wings and the back middle.  They are all doubled because the fabric was still …

Making a Prop Step-by-Step: Make a flapping butterfly

Ever need just the right prop to fill in that space in a song or skit?  The first place to go is the dollar store of course!  Sometimes you find a toy, or yard decoration that will work perfectly!  But honestly for me, it is rare that I find just what I'm looking for.  Usually I have to make my own prop.  But again the dollar store is the first place to look for materials, then I move up to "that large discount store" or hobby and fabric stores.

Today the materials I'm using came from the Dollar Tree.  I'm wanting a butterfly for my "love" song that I'm planning for the Valentine Banquet coming up and wouldn't it have been great to find one of those large butterflies they usually have around spring time in the dollar stores?  But it's not spring, it's still winter and even though I could see they were clearing out and making room for spring items, they didn't have any yard decorations yet.  So I picked up some craft foam to make my …

Puppet Making Tip: Hot Glue Gun Accessory

As a puppet maker and crafter I use the hot glue gun often. You would think I would learn not to burn myself and to keep that cup of cold water nearby but I still forget after all these years.  And no matter how hard you try, sometimes you still burn yourself on the glue that gushes out and sometimes just the heat coming through the fabric can be very painful.



I found these Thermal Thimbles on clearance at Walmart and immediately saw the potential!

They are originally for ironing but they are PERFECT for working with the hot glue gun.  I've tried them already and they work great.  The glue doesn't stick to them, it peels right off.

I wish I'd known about these years ago!

I purchased mine on clearance but they aren't very expensive at regular price and they are worth every penny.  I am grateful for them each time I work with the hot glue gun.  They allow me to pinch and put pressure in tight space that in the past I would have used a chop stick or similar tool.  I sti…
