1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Re: Technically not a pop star party but would love ideas......... on: June 23, 2008 10:29:22 AM
How about a "celebrity basket" with small tubes of sunblock, and anything else you are thinking of adding. Sunglasses, and travel size beauty products come to mind.  For another day you could do up a night time themed gift of small pillows ( maybe with lavendar for scent), an eyemask and  play a soothing cd of music. This is all assuming of course that it's an overnight camp, but if it isn't you could skip the music.
If you can sew, it wouldn't be hard to make those things, but may get a little spendy if you need to buy too much. Some other little things you could do perhaps; bookmarks, a camp photo album, and little potted flowers.
Have a wonderful time Smiley

Well, obviously you are going to need some "Krump Juice"! Ha, I love it! Pick one or two theme colors and run with them. Say Purple and Green, so the Krump juice is maybe grape or lime flavored, balloons, crepe streamers, music blastin'- Can a friend be a designated DJ?. Maybe you can find at the dollar store some crazy Krump glasses,(goblets, cups) and gold chains for everyone to wear. And if you could find/ make some "grillz" that would be fun too.
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Re: Carnival Party Ideas? 6 year old birthday on: June 16, 2006 10:25:47 AM
I did this last summer for dd's 6th bday. It was so fun!
First I got a refrigerator box, cut out a  window and door, and spray painted it to look like a ticket booth. (I bought tickets at a party supply store) So, as kids arrived they went to the ticket booth and received their tickets for the games. I got ahold of several folding tables to set up as "booths" and we played the kind of games you'd expect; a bean bag toss, a goldfish toss- goldfish are like 10 cents each! I filled round glass containers with water and put the goldfish in a few, so when a kid landed a ping pong ball in the bowl with the fish she won it. (big hit) A face painting/ temporary tattoo booth.
We twisted balloon animals.( maybe someone would be wiling to dress up as a clown and do the balloon animals?)
 From Oriental Trading Co I bought a box of mixed prizes for $10- a year later the box is still half full and they have been used for 3 parties since.
 I rented a popcorn machine for about $30, the sno-cone and cotton candy machines weren't available but would have been really nice. The extra popcorn bags were used to hold the party favors. I made clown ice cream cones- a scoop of ice cream ( in a cupcake liner) with a sugar cone "hat" and decorated with frosting/candy face,etc.
Happy party planning- this theme has many ideas- have fun!
4  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: New Vegetarian on: December 30, 2004 11:56:19 AM
Hi! I've been vegetarian for 10 years, and have had 2 healthy kids, so you can tell your mom you'll be ok. You can even tell her vegetarians live longer, get less cancer, heart disease...yada yada. OK, so you need other things to eat. Whole wheat pasta and marinara, rather any pasta and sauce. Alfredo and marinara are almost always meatless. Sandwiches- I love chickpeas with a little mayo and celery and curry powder mixed up (tuna sandwich style).Other veggie foods- quesadillas, burritoes, pizza minus meats. Just about any food you like you can make meatless. Balance is important. When you think of the food groups, replace the "meat group" idea with "Beans, whole grains, eggs, peanut butter, nuts". There are lots of meat replacement type foods. Major grocery stores will likely carry the Morning Star Farms brand products. They have Chick Nuggets, Corn Dogs, Veggie Burger Patties, sometimes you'll find "meatballs" or they even make a ground beef replacer. This brand is all meatless, and I like the food, and so do my veggie kids. It is really worth checking out. Also read about being vegetarian. Gary Null has some really good info and recipe books. Another favorite of mine are Cynthia Lair's Feeding the Whole Family. Just checkout a local library or bookstore under "vegetarian". Good luck!
