1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / DIY Tote Bag Idea - Bridal Party Favor on: March 05, 2006 02:03:56 PM
To start off, this isn't their present by itself... it's going to be stuffed with all different kinds of things.


Okay... how good would this work out?

Old Navy has cute tote bags... but I was wondering, how great would my idea actually work out?



To me, that structure of it looks kind of like a pillow with the same kind of fabric handles attached to it. However, the usual fabric made for a pillow wouldn't look too good with stuff stuffed into it...

So...
What if... I went to the craft store, purchased paints, sponges, and fabric and made them?

My future sister inlaw on my family's side (brothers fiance) received one for her birthday, and she never goes anywhere without it. The material used for it is like a thick cotton.

I know how to sow, and fortunatly inherited my mother and her mothers creativity, so, these would be really easy for me to do, but...

What do you think?

Also, for my mom, future mother-in-law and other future sister-in-law, I would purchase a different bag since their style's different, and for each bag they'll most likely be made in different colors (the girls favorite color), and have a different design on it, a different bag for each girl.
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Winter Wonderland on: November 21, 2005 03:41:32 PM
This years Christmas party's theme is going to be, "Winter Wonderland"
It was originally going to be "Santa's Workshop", but, since it's a Church Christmas party, we figured some people might be offended by it since Santa "takes away" from Jesus.

Anyway, thing is, Santa's Workshop was extremely easy to do, but, Winter Wonderland isn't as easy.

Does anyone have any ideas for Winter Wonderland?
I have a few, but, I want to go all out but on a budget.

Thank You.
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Penguin Decoration... Help please on: November 08, 2005 02:01:27 PM
One of my friends and I are having a joined 20th B-day party...
The theme is "Rock Star"...
I'm making her her cake, and, I want it to haveit decorated with stars and a huge penguin on it since she loves penguins.
I'm going to create the stars by making star shaped sugar cookes, then frosting them with gold frosting...
But, I'm still trying to figure out how the heck to make the penguin. It doesn't have to be edible, just big and sefe enough to put on top of a cake (so, not a stuffed animal or anything).

Can anyone help?


That is what I want the cake to look like


this picture is what I'm using to try to get an idea of how to create the penguin
4  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Nurses Costume on: October 18, 2005 11:53:48 PM
So, now that mine's complete, and my boyfriend's taking care of his on his own now, I need help for my best friends costume...
She wants to be a nurse, but is broke. I have dedicated my money to helping her out. At first, I thought, "Hey, I could go to a thrift store, find a white cottonish dress and reconstruct it"... after that failed, I have decided to come to the wise minds here and ask for help. My costume was easy, since, well, it has little fabric and you just sow (spelling) pieces of fabric together, then, tada! You're a fairy! Unfortunatly, I haven't made a complete one-piece dress with sleeves and that whole bit. I'm going to google in nurses costumes and try to work with that, but, if anyone has any helpful tips/hints or ideas, please fill me in.

Okay, so, it is slutty... but, here's the costume I created using fabric, beads, flowers, leaves, and a few other things including help from a few of you...

6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Rockstar/Spoiled Princess Birthday on: October 14, 2005 07:49:41 PM
Okay, so, as frightening as it is to turn 20, I'm doing it *cries*
I've decided that my birthday party theme, as bad as this sounds, is going to be 'Spoiled' I'd say 'Spoiled Princess', but, without the whole dragons, castles and what not... more like, Beverly Hills Spoiled Princess. I also want to tie the "Rock Star" theme in with it... I guess, 'Spoiled Rock Star'?

The cake is going to be pink and decorated (not sure how just yet0, the presents will be pink with brown ribbon, there will be pink and white balloons, and a tiara on the cake.

My family, boyfriend and two best friends are going out to eat, then back to the house for a party. There will be drinking, and, well, a normal young adult party...


Does anyone have any ideas by any chance?

Any ideas as to how to make an aligator or crocodile costume?
8  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Halloween Party Theme on: September 20, 2005 10:00:08 PM
Okay, already upset with myself for posting so much... really annoying, I know... but, I just came up with the theme for the party. It does get detailed, but, he'll like it (boyfriend).

Haunted Whorehouse...

So far, I'm thinking: cobwebs, white fabric all over the furniture, red light, certain kind of movies playing on the tv but w/o noise (yes, it is an adult party)... possibly the murdered bathtub thing (tub lined w/ aluminum foil, filled w/ water and red dye, then fake blood finger prints), the tall candles...

Anyone else have any ideas?
9  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Halloween Party on: September 20, 2005 09:06:31 PM
Oh gosh, another one from me *sighs* sorry guys...  Embarrassed

Anyway, my boyfriend has decided to throw a halloween party, only, it's based on getting drunk and just having a good'ol time and nothing scary. If it were my party, i'd have fake cobwebs everywhere, the bathtub lined with aluminum foil and filled with water & red dye with fake blood handprints on sides of tub/wall, and the fosset dripping. All the furniture would be covered with white sheets, candles everywhere and, pretty much anything and everything close to scary...

Then for food, i'd have halloween brownies, a pumpkin cake, and all other types of things. Unfortunatly, my boyfriend's a simple guy who doesn't go all out like his girlfriend. I'm thinking making my own batch of trail mix, trash can punch, etc... does anyone have any ideas for easy snacks/finger foods and drinks (alcoholic or non-alcoholic).
