I 100% understand keeping things like that in a keepsake box, because I do the same thing. But how often do you take those things out and look at them?? A scrapbook will display your treasures in a fun way that highlights who you are and your relationship, and mix it with the pictures that go with those memories.
You can use the glue dots that don't stick too terribly much, so if you REALLY need to, you can take them out and put them back in your keepsake box. But display those things - that's what they're for!!
Hi guys! I'm from Baltimore, which I'm sure you know is almost completely devoid of good craft shows. So, I'm asking for your help. Do you guys know of any good craft shows in PA? I've tried to do some research, but I have no idea where to even start.
Any help you could toss my way would be fantabulous! Thanks!!
I find that it's best to visit as many stores as possible to find the best prices. For instance, I visit an AmVets store as often as possible (they have half-price days!) but I still hit up the Goodwill, too. I mean, let's face it... I can get a designer pair of jeans, practically brand-new, for $6. It's still a huge savings from retail.
It's fun to hunt around and try to find the best deals, and who knows what you'll discover along the way!
For my best friend's party (she and her hubby had a pre-party with everyone, then we all split up, then came back to the house for a post party) we made adult oriented desserts... she made a cake that looked like a female torso, and we got some cupcake molds from the adult store that looked like male... yeah.
I think you should def. choose a theme--they're always so much fun! I mean, even if your theme is "last night of freedom," it still gives you stuff to work with. You could go tropical and make mini-hawaiian pizzas, smoothies, etc. You could act like kids and have Kool-Aid and set up the sprinklers, with such staples as mac-n-cheese, mini PB & J, etc. Actually, that one sounds like fun, lol.
You should check out recipezaar.com. They have FANTASTIC ideas for all occasions.
So I got a little notice that this post was updated, and checked it out... just to see what was said. On a whim, I checked the website, and they're getting ready to put a ReStore in my neighborhood! I am SO excited right now! Just had to share.
My mom does the Christmas Lights in the bottles... it makes a PERFECT gift! If you're planning on using them as centerpieces, though, you might have issues with the cord... I've heard that they make battery operated Christmas lights... maybe you could play around with those?
I'll have to take a picture of the one she has with the Grey Goose bottle and show it to you... might help to have a visual!
