Hi Y'all! My husband wants to be Trent (from Daria) for halloween. The character has three silver hoops down each earlobe, but my husband does not actually want to get six ear piercings (or any). Do you all know what I could use to re-create this look without actually piercing or paying a bunch for ear cuffs? Thanks!
I love the gift kits in a box kind of thing, but I'm stuck on ideas of what to put in it! My fiance is a Korean immigrant from Philadelphia, who loves cheese, drumming, Philly, and movies. I've knit him a ninja turtles inspired hat, and I've popped some new drumsticks in the box, but that's all I can think of! Any more ideas?
Hey fellow Craftsters! I just got engaged. My hubby to be is Korean, and I want to incorporate that into the ceremony. (Good excuse to use paper lantern lighting as well!) I myself am Scotch/Irish and I love enchanted forests, faery, celtic stuff... you get the idea. We're both musicians as well. I'm looking for a way to incorporate all this into a small ceremony and big reception. Any ideas? THANKS!
Hi! I'm looking for some sort of scrapbook and/or contact paper that looks like a silk asian tapestry... I wanted to decoupage it onto the drawers of my dresser, nightstand, and coffee tables. (All are currently glossy black.) Anyone know where I could find some? I looked at Michael's, and JoAnn's.... anywhere else?
So, I inherited this top from my mom, which is basically just an old yellow tank (really great fit!) with lace edging. The cool thing is, it's got the Chicago skyline painted in green and orange on the bottom of the tank, and "Chicago" in almost coca-cola style lettering in green up the side. It's so old and worn that it looks especially cool. But, since it's a 30 year old, light yello tank, it's almost completly see through. I've got a new yellow tank that I'm planning to duplicate the design on, but I'd really like to salvage what's left of the old one. Any ideas? Maybe a lining or something? I'm new to sewing (seriously, I bought a sewing machine yesterday, and I have no idea how to use it. I usually hand-stitch), so the simpler the better.
So... I've got a few friends... various young musician/student/"I'm going to pursue my directing career with my new handycam" friends. These boys can barely heat a can of soup, so they all want me to cook for them. I have lately been to busy with school to take care of my poor boys. One has already lost 15 lbs, another has eaten pork n' beans for the past 2 weeks, and a third has been living off of Jack in the Box. I was wondering if you would all be able to offer up some easy recipes/meal ideas, that I could put in a cookbook for them? I thought it'd make a nice gift for them. So far, I've got a couple soup recipes (tomato and basil with cheese tortellini is my fave) and some stir fry combos, as well as a fairly simple pumpkin bread recipe. I'm looking for baking, cooking, as well as fresh stuff too. So long as it's tasty, simple, and not too expensive. PLEASE HELP! I don't want my boys starving to death, but I don't want to fail my classes either!
So... I was going through all my old make-up and jewelry yesterday, and found that I had over 70 earrings that were either mis-matched or made of metal that I can't wear. Any ideas what I could do with them? It doesn't necessarily have to be jewelry or anything, I could do an interior decorating thing, or something. I just don't want to dump them all.
So... I looked everywhere for a free monkey pattern I liked, and didn't find any. So I just kind of winged it. Here's the result. I fell in love with him, and am very sad that I made him for someone else, I think I'm going to have to make another one for me.
