1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: Wedding wishbowl as a guestbook? on: May 26, 2006 08:46:34 AM
We did this, and it was a hit-- people can write a bit more, and the kids have a blast.

I just got an actual fish bowl in the pet section (cheaper than vases) and used some nice paper in our colors-- we tied ribbon around the bottom of the bowl (it had a cool lip). Total cost was probably $10 or less, and it was a nice thing for people to do when they first arrived (and later, as they got drunk...). Highly recommended.

I would check online, www.zappos.com or www.shoes.com or www.shoebuy.com . I know at least zappos and shoebuy have free shipping and free shipping for returns, so that'll help if they don't fit. Amazon also has a big selection of shoes, surprisingly, and I would check department stores now and in the next few months- as prom season is over, there will be a plethora of marked down special occasion shoes, especially in colors like red, that not everyone buys.

I think the roses in your hair would be gorgeous, and that along with earrings would be enough to pull off red shoes-- though embroidered roses on the dress would be stunning, as well.

Good luck!

Glad you like it!

So I was bored last night, and had some fleece....so I did this:



I know I saw the idea on a website, but I cannot for the life of me remember where.

It came out a little too puffy for me to wear, but I think it's cute...What do you think?

Oh it's good to see this...I have to finish a purse and 6 mini-stockings (for my pet mice, so if they end up new years stockings, I'm ok). I finished the embroidered onesies I'm doing this morning, and I want to make a set of etched pint glasses for the husband, but that may not happen.

bracelet_girl, that's a GREAT bag...

I have a question for you guys-- I'm working on some embroidered onesies for my yet-to-arrive nephew....I'll be giving them to my brother-in-law and sister-in-law at the shower....and I'm trying to figure out how many I should do....it's a fun theme, but I don't want to overwhelm them with superhero onesies (is that possible? ok, I'm sure it is.)

So far I've stitched up a superman logo and a captain america logo....but I have 3 more I'd like to do....is 5 onesies too much? Or is that an ok number? I've heard babies go through them like crazy, so i know extras can't hurt.

Let me know what you think! Thanks!

I've only made a few, but never used a pattern-- I just drew the shape I wanted, cut out two, added a seam allowance, and stitched it up...then I added a hanging loop and voila!

I know there are patterns out there, but if you know what shape you're going for, it's SUPER simple.

Thanks all! I really need to get better aquainted with my local thrift shops-- I only really go to one regularly, and they don't have much good stuff.

I do love dollar stores, and Walmart's clearance fabric (you can't beat a dollar a yard).

I'm also a fiend for the Michael's and Joann's coupons...they both take competitors coupons, and I'm on the joann's email list, so they send me coupons there, as well...I don't remember the last time I bought fabric for full price.

I guess I'm just doing a lot of initial stocking up...

KCGal--

Glad to know I'm not alone. I agree, though, craftster's gotten me all excited about doing stuff, but then I end up spending that time on craftster, finding all sorts of new ideas.

I was proud of myself, though, last night I sat down and actually worked on a project, instead of finding 10 more that I desperately want to do.

10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Newbie Overload? on: November 08, 2005 12:19:47 PM
So I'm fairly new to this fabulous community, and I'm wondering if anyone else had newbie-overload? I'm loving it, but I want to do so many things, and I'm starting pretty much from scratch, so I'm spending tons of money.

So far I've made a purse and a half, gift tags, and etched glasses for candles. My to do list includes embroidery, more etching, postage stamp necklaces, many more bags (including some with ties, I think) and many other things I can't even think about right now.

A few questions:

Has this happened to you?

How on earth can I afford all of this/What are your recommendations for pacing myself?

I guess I really need to find a crafster support group...hmm...now there's an idea.
