1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Awesome gift baskets? on: November 14, 2008 12:01:34 PM
I'm not talking about boring gift baskets I want to make some awesome ones to give to friends this year!

This is what I'm thinking about putting in one gift basket

1) Scrapbook cookbook, with lots of fun drink and food recipes
2) Shot glasses! (peppermint shot glasses? to go with the season) or Margareta glasses
3) Cute homemade magnets
4) Napkins
5) cupcakes in a jar


What are you putting in yours?
2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Ideas for Betty page/ Pin-up girl costume on: October 24, 2008 09:53:33 AM
 So finally I decided to be Betty page for Halloween this year! I have a generic sort of sexy sailor dress and some red high heels which I borrowed from a friend but I really want some ideas to really make my costume pop. 

I was looking online and I saw a tutorial for Victory Rolls/ Betty Page /1940's hair

Which I think will be really good for my costume, as for make-up, I am going to try the heavy eyeliner, fake lashes, and bright red lips

This is a make-up tutorial I saw on you-tube as well

I don't think I can find a sailors hat but a big red flower should suffice!

Any suggestions though?  I would really appreciate it!

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Where to find a clear glass pendant? on: April 28, 2008 11:15:13 AM
For a gift for my boyfriend I want to make a necklace from hemp with a glass pendant with a picture behind it.

I have no idea how to post a picture but basically something like

http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=7754483
but clear without the swirlies inside

Does anyone know where I could find one? Of if anyone makes glass beads here how can I order one?  I'm super excited about my little idea so any help would be awesome!

6  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / My first apartment, But nothing to put in it! on: April 14, 2008 07:35:20 PM
 Shocked  I'm getting my first real apartment! (Moving out of the dorms)  The apartment is beautiful but I have NOTHING to furnish or decorate it with.  I'm not really as worried about furnishing it because I am expecting to get some furniture from my family,  but decorating it Is where I am looking for some ideas!  I really have no art or anything right now and I am on a budget so the more things I can make for myself the better.  So ANY cool ideas or suggestions would be fantastic. 

These are some of the things I'm thinking about doing

Having a hand painted wall hanging (I cant paint the white apartment walls)
Maybe hanging up some funky looking christmas lights,
I'm thinking about making a coffee table for the living room


really any Shocked ideas that you could think of would be so appreciated!
