1161  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Paperback Harry Potter Book on: October 10, 2005 11:26:10 AM
How about making it into a purse? I've seen them posted here and there but I've never made one myself. I bet if you asked  someone would post a tutorial. ^_^

If all else fails, tear the hell out of the book and decoupage something with favorite quotes and the pictures on each chapter.

I've actually been wanting to make him a journal for the songs and poems he writes and so he can sketch stuff in there. (Yes, my boyfriend is too, an artsy fuck lol) But I've actually never made one before so it should be an experience. But now I'm struggling as to how to decorate the cover. He loves the gothic period, vampires, heavy metal (Cradle of Filth, Children of Bodom, Dimmu Borgir, etc.) plays the electric guitar and loves to play video games...

I was thinking of using him favorite quote, "Death is a rose unopened." I might play around with using that as the cover ^_^
1165  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Gift ideas for baby and mom? *please* on: February 03, 2005 02:00:08 PM
My mentor of four years is two months pregnant with her second child. We don't know if it's a girl or a boy yet- and there already may be health problems. Her son is 6 now and was born premature; and the doctors think there may be a chance this one will be the same way. That said, she is also an art teacher who inspires 250 children every day (the main reason why I even craft now!) and I want to make something special. Maybe even something for the baby, Laura and her son Caden. Any ideas girls?! Thank you so much in advance, I've never made anything for babies or pregnant mom's before. Ideas are greatly appreciated! ^_^

well you can make him a mix c.d, or stencil him a shirt... or you could make some heart shaped cookies. good luck!

I agree with the cookie idea, men love food!

If the child plays the guitar, make him a strap and maybe get the sheet music from some of his favorite songs.

Again, if a guitarist- does he need new picks or some new headphones for his amp?

If he plays drums, drumsticks are nice since they break all the time (you could even write things on them with cute, colored sharpies)

You could go to the local thrift/good will and get a bunch of old band shirts from bands he likes, cut 'em up and sew them into a simple quilt.

If he wears eyeliner, nailpolish or lipstick like mine does lol, but him a nice makeup remover and whatever it is he uses.

If he write his own music, I suggest making him a journal to write new ideas and lyrics in. You could make one from scratch or you could buy a fairly cheap one and decorate it according to his preferences.

War hammer lol good old days... new paints, some new little warriors and crap. Ask the guys in the store what they should get for him, they'll make your ears bleed with ideas- they tend to be really nice.

Aw! That is such a cute idea! I did end up making him a stuffed animal of his favorite pet cat Damian, and I plan to make him a journal to write down his song lyrics, sketches and poems in. So maybe I'll add velcro to the arms and make it hold the journal. Thanks for the duct tape rose tutorial, I actually might make some for his mother since she's a sweetie and over worked. Thank you!!! *Bounces around handing out cookies* ^_^'

My best(est best) friend in the (whole widest) world and boyfriend of three years is so sweet and is always doing nice things for me. I want to make him something special. He's going through a rough time right now and could use a little extra comfort.

A quick run through...

Kyle lives in New Mexico (moving sucks big time) and I live in Maryland. For the geographically challenged ... I mean... those who suffered the horror of poor, publicly funded schools out there- it's about 1,500 miles. He is trying to figure out what he wants to do with his life, what he wants to do for a living and what college to go to. He is freaking out. I want to make something that will make him feel special, but also something easy to send in the mail. I plan making him a quilt down the road but don't have the time, and he already has a scrapbook of us. What should I do!? I love you all lol and I know you're all creative as hell so I'm begging you, help a sister out. ^_^ I'll give you a cookie!
