21  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / On the right track, but I need some help with 'stuffers'... on: November 26, 2005 07:09:06 AM
Okay, so I know what I want to do for my parents this year.  I'm planning or cross stitching on a drawstring bag, and then filling it with some other little things.  The problem is, I don't know what to fill them with.  For my mom, I've got lip gloss... but that's about it.  Huh

Here's a few things about them:

Mom-Quiet, between jobs, loves to read, (we all do actually), cries at just about every sappy poem but still loves them, Cecily Mary Barker... ooo brainstorm... MOVING ON... umm... we don't have a bathtub anymore, just a shower stall, so bath beads/foam, are no good, pretty smelling things, but not floral... Anything a middle-aged woman would like...

Dad-Also loves book, disliked people/dealing with the public... lol, lamps <3, umm... if you know who I'm talking about: Richard Matheson, H.P.Lovecraft, Clive Barker (authors)... I dunno...

Any ideas are greatly appreciated... I'll prbably do record bowls for both my grandmas due to the simplicity, then put some candies in there, (plus they are so not craft savvy they'll think it is amazing)

Please post, any help is appreciated
22  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / The road to Hell is paved with good intentions... on: November 21, 2005 03:39:46 PM
Anyone else find themselves in the same boat every year? I sure do.  I don't think I've bought a gift for my parents, and I am severly running out of time and ideas.  Every year I say I'm gonna start earlier, then come November I realize how screwed I am.  Gah.  Please tell me I'm not the only one!?  I was slightly under the impression that most crafters are all slightly disorganized and miss something... Brutal... I'm still not sure what to do...  Huh
23  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / bulk shoelaces? on: October 28, 2005 08:41:38 AM
OKay, this is from a high school in Canada.  For our yearbook, we are doing a theme of shoes.  We have all kinds of inserts going in, and we are trying to find a company that sells shoelaces in mass quantity.  It's preffered to have a Canadian company, but we'll look at anything.  We want to include a shoelace as a bookmark, and therefore need half as many pairs as we have yearbooks.  Our school colours are red and white, so try to keep that in mind.  Any help with this would be great, and a quick response would be tremendous.

Thank you fellow crafters for reading this...

24  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Quillers Unite! on: October 02, 2005 06:35:47 AM
Ha... My first post.  Just wondering if anyone quills. Is that the right word?  Anyways... I tried it a few weeks ago, and I'm just getting into it.  I don't think it's a widely known craft, so maybe this'll spark some interest.
