163  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Vampire High School Dance on: September 11, 2007 04:57:04 PM
My sister recently got published and as a book launch party, we did a Vampire High School Dance.  The book is a vampire jr./sr. high type deal.

We rented a patio room and transformed it with red and black decorations.  Here's some of the pics:

The room beforehand: very blah, kinda icky.




We rented chair linens and scarves and I got to tie them a LOT of them!




The Prize Table - Heather (my sis) got people to donate things like shirts, hats, wine, jewelry...all vampire themed:


The prize table with prizes:


The wine bottles were jazzed up with a bit of red or black ribbon and a button from her book:


Shot of room mostly done - my daughter getting last minute directions:


All around the room was a big icky beam, my BIL covered it with black and white tulle layered with red christmas lights - the effect was fantastic in the end.  To cover a doorway we put up a "blood" curtain.




The cake was picked up for only $60 - the book cover on the cake and it was a "bloody" cake - red velvet!








Some of our vampy guests (all guests were requested to dress either as vamps or at least in red and black):



The author herself at the book table, we bought candies with her logo and book title on them - 2000 of them for only $200!  Plus a bowl of candy kisses - cuz she wanted them. Grin


A semi-decent shot of the tables: centerpieces were black lacy spiderwebs with black glasses/red candles and a black and white pic of a famous vampire - everyone from her creation to Count Chocula! (my daughter and nephew)


I know that was a lot, but that's some basics.  I have loads more and will try to come back and post more - the party was much better than we expected!





164  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Christmas Stocking Swap 3 on: September 03, 2007 05:40:14 AM
It's getting to be that time of year again!  Last year I ran the Christmas Stocking Swap 2 and it was a huge success.  This year I'd like to start it up again, just a bit earlier and this time with a fantastic co-organiser - Homerof2!!! Grin  Last year we had 55 participants, I'd like to see it even bigger this year! 

2006 Christmas Stocking Swap 2

Christmas Stocking Swap 2 Gallery

2005 Christmas Stocking Swap

2005 Christmas Stocking Swap Gallery


We will each make a stocking and fill it with items for our partner.  You will let us know in your questionnaire if you have a preference of sewn, crocheted, knitted or embellished stocking.  You and your partner will be able to decide on just how much to spoil one another, but 50% of the items MUST BE CRAFTED.  We will require that you put at least 6 items in the stocking.

I'm thinking of running signups October 1st - October 26th and crafting time of October 26th - November 26th.  That's a month of crafting time...enough?  too much?  Remember if you send overseas, it takes longer at the holidays!

Anyone else interested? Grin
165  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Craft My Theme Round 2 (SIGNUPS 9/03/07-9/24/07 11:00pm; SENDOUTS10/24/07) on: September 03, 2007 05:29:26 AM

Date to send item by:  October 24, 2007

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): Nope

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO

All ages allowed? Or 18+?  All ages allowed.  If dependent upon parents/someone else for transportation or funds, please ok this with them first.

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: NO
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES

- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: NO
- Does not have any negative feedback: NO

Details of swap:
Each participant chooses 5 themes their partner can base crafts on, the partners choose ONE theme from the five and make all crafts based on that theme.  (one large, one medium and one small)

For example, say I want to join this swap.  My themes are:
1. Hockey
2. Severus Snape
3. British TV
4. Reading
5. Camping

I have both broad (camping) and specific (Severus Snape) themes.

My partner would then choose one theme to base all crafts on, so let's say you're my partner and you choose my Reading theme.  You might make a reading log, a shirt with a quote from my favorite book and a bookmark.

I'm warning people right now I'm a stickler for good communication.  Please message your partner BEFORE you begin crafting and please let me or the littlest ninja know if you don't hear from them in a few days.  Please make sure you PM me and the littlest ninja when you SEND and RECEIVE.  I won't dig in the gallery to see if you received your package.  People who HAVE NOT SENT more than 5 days beyond the end date will receive NEGATIVE FEEDBACK (this feedback WILL NOT be changed until AFTER your partner receives) so please make sure you have the time to devote to this swap (extraordinary circumstances taken into account of course).  i don't think I'm asking what's beyond reasonable.  

With all that said please join and enjoy!!!!

167  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Craft My Theme Swap Round 2? on: August 07, 2007 06:25:02 PM
Last year Kristen81 ran a Craft My Theme swap and it looked fantastic!  Anyone up for another round starting signups in mid-September?

Here's the lowdown:


Each participant chooses 5 themes their partner can base crafts on, the partners choose ONE theme from the five and make all crafts based on that theme.  (one large, one medium and one small)

For example, say I want to join this swap.  My themes are:
1. Hockey
2. Severus Snape
3. British TV
4. Reading
5. Camping

I have both broad (camping) and specific (Severus Snape) themes.

My partner would then choose one theme to base all crafts on, so lets say you're my partner and you choose my Reading theme.  You might make a reading log, a shirt with a quote from my favorite book and a bookmark.

What do you think?

It may just be that my brain is being stubborn, but I can't figure out how I'm supposed to do the straps on this darned bag!!  Can anyone find an easy way to explain it to me?  I've only made bags following Craftsters tutorials and this is my first effort at a commercial pattern.  It's bag A.

Thanks!

Swap Name: What's In A Name Swap
Original Thread link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=163462.0

Gallery thread link:http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=175862.0

# of Flakers:1

Person who needs an angel:  Grieney

What name would you like crafted for?  For instance, your first AND middle, or just middle, etc.  Adrienne is fine.  I got dumped for a girl whose first name is my middle so we'll skip that.  Bitter? yes! 

What is the origin of your name? Latin, derivative of Hadrian, meaning from Hadria, not that this helps.  Can also mean 'rich' or 'dark'

What information about your name would you like to receive crafts for?
(The names meaning, its history, famous people by the same name?) Please provide that information here: I was named for Adrienne Barbeau (actress in Swamp Thing, The Fog and Carnivale), so you can tie her in, or ancient Roman stuff since I'm a Latin nerd.  My etsy store is named Adrienne's Villa, so I'm a big geek about that stuff.  My last name means 'road' or 'traveller' as far as I can guess if that gives you any ideas. Or be really creative and have a snake charmer travelling to Rome. hehe

Is there anything specific youd like to receive? hoodies/tshirts etc are always nice, and I do need a crochet hook roll, but I'm pretty open to anything

Is there anything you would NOT like to receive? stuffies or cutesy things, or big 'sit arounds' because I'm trying to declutter.
