1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Wanna-be cook on: November 19, 2009 09:12:18 AM
Welcome to cooking! I'm new too. My hands smell like garlic today - it's nice but kind of annoying, haha.

This chart from Scott will be really helpful for you - it tells you what to sub certain ingredients out with if you don't have them when you're cooking. If you're like me, you dont' have ALL the necessary spices, herbs, etc. and you can get in a jam without them. Check it out here:

Good luck cooking - once you're a famous chef, we hope you remember us!
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Summer wedding placecards on: October 19, 2009 08:59:04 AM
I was in a wedding this summer and it was outdoors, near a barn and a river, so it was obviously beautiful. The bride is a professional event planner, so of course she had a theme, which was pretty much everything "country" and "farm". My favorite part of the decorations were the placecards, which I helped with. She just used basic cardstock and wrote the names/ table numbers on folded cards. Then she put a fake flower through a hole. Not only could you identify your table by the number, but also by the type of flower, because there was a bouquet of each type of fake flower at the table, identifying it. (Are you following me here, I think I'm babbling).

Then, we put the placecards in alphabetical order and clothes pinned them onto a tweed line, setup in rows, across a giant wooden panel painted the same color as our bridesmaid dresses.

It was gorgeous!

4  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: What are you gonna be for Halloween??? on: October 19, 2009 08:49:24 AM
I haven't done ANY prep work yet, but my boyfriend and I are going as Salt n Pepa. He's going as a salt shaker and I'm going to attempt to be Pepa from the 90s rap group. We'll see...

I've been browsing sites this weekend to find low maintenance costumes. I was thinking of maybe just drawing vampire bites on my neck... lame though, right?

This site http://www.scottcommonsense.com/TimeSavers/Articles/TenminuteHalloweenCostumes.aspx?articleID=65&catID=6
has some quick and easy costumes - I like the superfan costume but it's not original at all. A coworker said that she knew someone who wore a tee shirt that said "Go Ceilings!" one Halloween... he was a ceiling fan... haha.
5  UNITED STATES / Washington, D.C. / New Crafters- DC/ VA- Saying hi on: October 19, 2009 08:42:32 AM
Hey all- I'm brand new here but wanted to stop in and say hi to the local folks. I live in VA and work in Arlington- I used to travel into the city each day but got a job closer (phew!).

My best friend and I are interested in oneday getting a booth at local craft fairs. I paint and she makes cards. Right now it's just an idea, and we're just amateurs, but maybe I can learn from y'all.

I look forward to chatting with ya! Smiley
