1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Button Bouquets at craft fairs- will they sell? on: September 05, 2008 11:36:21 AM
Hey all! I had a blast making button bouquets for my wedding and would love to continue to make them, and sell them so my house doesn't get full of them  Wink The ones I made for my wedding were centerpieces and the guests liked them so much I gave all but one vase away!

Does anyone think that these would sell at craft fairs? I could make them themed/color specific and have some ideas on how to display them (in bridal bouquets with silk flowers, in vases, on presents with gift wrap, etc.

Also, If you think they would sell, what would you pay for 1, a dozen, etc.

I figured pricing could be a dollar each or $10 for a dozen.

Here are some pics of them from my wedding.

4  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Healthy dinner, 7 nights a week!? on: January 27, 2007 11:13:58 AM
I don't know if anyone else feels this way but I feel like one of the hardest things about living on my own is keeping motivated to cook a good dinner every night and not just order pizza! This week I planned 7 recipes and we got the stuff at the grocery store. I am trying to feed us more healthy, filling foods so we don't snack on crap all night after dinner.

Last night was a success. We had Udon noodles with stir-fried veggies in peanut sauce with a side dish of sweet and spicy green beans!

delicious and very filling!

On tonight's menu- Garbanzo bean burger and oven baked seasoned sweet potato/yam fries.

anyone have any favorite healthy vegetarian meals that they love to make?
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Kitchen Renovation in 2 parts on: November 26, 2006 03:47:49 PM
When we moved in, our kitchen looked like this, white walls with 80s almond colored cabinets with wood detailing  Shocked EWWWW:

We went ahead and painted and decorated, yellow walls with apple themed decor Smiley Very cute, but still ugly cabinets:

This weekend I finally removed, washed, sanded, and painted the cabinets and my fiance added the new silver handles. Cheesy

Updating the cabinets only cost $59 total! $16 in paint, $3 for sandpaper, and a big splurge of 20 handles at $2 a piece
We also found out that the panel on our dishwasher is reversible, and we turned it around so that its white and matches everything! Its like a new dishwasher for free  Wink
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / I hate our kitchen cabinets! on: October 21, 2006 04:59:17 PM
When we first moved in in May they were charming and fun, now they are just too much for me to handle. They are made of a certain type of material that my dad said paint won't take well to. They are the originals from when the place was built in 1984. HELP ME CRAFTSTERS!



These icky cabinets are also in the bathroom Sad any ideas there?


I am the owner, not a renter, so I can do whatever I want to them, Im just stuck for ideas Sad

9  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Simple, redone lamp shade on: September 24, 2006 02:34:06 PM
When we moved (in may) the lampshade on a lamp my mom gave us for free got grease on it from my bike and I JUST got around to fixing it Embarrassed

I used army green fabric from a dress that doesnt fit me, and the tie on the dress I used at the top and bottom. Its basic, but I like it:)
