My best friend is turning sixteen next month, and since "sweet 16" is a bit more special than most, I'd like to do something more for her birthday this year. One idea I had was to give her a little something each day for the sixteen days leading up to her birthday, and giving her my "main" gift on her actual birthday, but I'm not sure what I could give her each of those days. But, I'm open to any ideas (outside of the 16 days idea)! Her birthday is in March, she's Puerto Rican and loves to dance, cook, and scrapbook. That's not a lot of details, I guess, but I really just need some general ideas. I thought of making her a scrapbook, but her and I have made several of those for our friends, so I'd like to do something different?
Sorry for the length, and thanks so much for any help!
I've been trying to locate some cute, Japanese fabrics, such as these:
in the United States. I've checked out reprodepot.com, but currently they don't have quite what I'm looking for. Do any of you have any other places I could possibly find them at? Thanks so much, and sorry if this has been posted before!
This swap ended quite some time ago, but for some reason, Babizzle never got an angel. So I am posting to finally allow her to finish this swap!
Here's some of Babizzle's info: What kind of purse you'd you like/dislike to receive? (knitted, crocheted, sewed, recon, etc.): I'd prefer a sewn or reconned purse, if possible. Favorite colors: Black, white, pink, red, purple - anything punky! Colors you dislike: I'm not too fond of uberflowery patterns or pastels. Favorite symbols (stars, hearts, spades, etc): Lots! Stars, hearts, spades, bold flowers, stripes, polkadots, most things! Symbols you dislike: Crosses
If interested, please PM me so I can send you the rest of the info. Thanks!
*And sorry Babizzle for this taking so long!
**Angel has been found, thanks to all who offered!
For my Comm. Arts class, we needed to read a "classic novel" and do a report and project on the book. I read Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen, and have been thinking nonstop of what to do for my project and I'm stuck!
By project, I mean something you make to represent the book, such as a diarama.
But I want to make something crafty! So for anyone who has read the book, do you have any ideas? Even if you have not read it, if you have any project ideas, they would help!
My friend and I have a booth for a local craft fair in December. We've only done one other craft fair, and at that one, we were only selling one specific product. This year, we want to sell a bunch of different things.
We both can sew pretty well. I was thinking of a few things.. - coin purses - pins - purses - jewelry
For all of you who have done craft fairs, what items seem to sell well? And, since this one will be right before the holidays, any good holiday themed crafts?
I know its still a bit early, but I'm trying to get a head start on my xmas presents this year, especially if I'm going to make them.
I want to make something for a couple of my best friends. Something that really means something and shows how much they mean to me. I was thinking of a mini scrapbook type thing, but maybe something a little more unique? Any ideas?
I also heard the idea of getting a dictionary and highlighting all the words that remind you of your friend. I think that would be a special gift. What do you all think?
