2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / TMNT birthday party on: August 19, 2010 04:17:16 PM
hello All!  So my (will be) 4 yr old DD decided that with less than a month to go until her Birthday she wanted to change from an undersea tea party to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - My fault, I got her a disk of the old school version, made her love them even more than the 2003 version.  (we've watched the disk of 12 episodes daily for almost 2 weeks now, what was I thinking?)  Anyway, to complicate my life, I have about a $20 decorations/game budget, and around 11 kids will be invited.  With the invited adults we could be looking at 30 people total.  (it's gonna be like $50 for pizza)  I'm thinking foamie masks, posterboard sandwich board shells.  Posters hand drawn of the characters and one of Shredder - will use that with cut out ninja stars for a game.  Balloons in green and maybe gray (sewer and all)  Green streamers (have) cardboard manhole covers.  May see if the pizza hut or other pizza place will sell me cheap pizza boxes.  Oh, DD requested a Krang pinata - so that will be easy as he's a giant brain with little arms.  Balloon and papermache. 

I'm thinking green dyed apple juice for the kids and cheap 2 ltr sodas for the adults.  Cake, mint choc chip icecream. 

For favors I'm gonna make some ooze for each kid, maybe find some gummy pizzas, thought about making paper ninja turtle faces to put on suckers. 

I could really, really use some ideas.  did I mention I'm freaking out cause we don't have a clue where to hold this party at?  It will most likely be outside.

These are the cuffs I made for the Sweat Shop Swap 23.  Each one represents an element (I like theme work, what can I say)

Water

Sorry about the crappy photos, the camera has killed off so I have to use my phone for now.  I fell in love with the air one (it was the first) and didn't want to give it up.

6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / and you thought bdays are hard on: July 07, 2010 11:12:30 AM
Begging for help. Need anniversary gift for aunt and her Hubby of 5 years. Can't do no gift or card only- long story. Prob is I'm can't pay the bills broke so I can't buy anything, but I have a huge stash to rival a craft store and can do just about any craft. They are the country living type. Outhouses and chickens. Made them hand painted wood sign last year, but they never put it up at their house. Oh, yes, to make it even harder,  dad called me today to say family is celebrating it tomorrow evening. than

10  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / kids dressup swap on: June 06, 2010 06:16:04 AM
I was wondering if anyone would be interested in swapinh dress up clothes for our kids or kids in our lives like nieces or nephews, friends kids, so on. I don't know about you guys but I never seem to get around to making my daughter much and swaps are such nice motivation and this would let her get a box, which would thrill her. What do ya'll think?
