1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Help with Surprise Party on: April 30, 2008 04:54:43 PM
   In the middle of June, I'm throwing a surprise 25th anniversary party for my parents.  I have a couple things planned that I'd like to do but would like some ideas and I know you guys have some.  Smiley

  The theme for the party is obviously silver & I'd also like to use turquoise.  The party is going to be in a shelter house in a local park and is in mid June.  So far, I'm planning on making a slideshow of pictures of my parents throughout their marriage, a CD with various love songs, a really neat centerpiece (http://www.marthastewart.com/portal/site/mslo/menuitem.3a0656639de62ad593598e10d373a0a0/?vgnextoid=48f0608f8532f010VgnVCM1000003d370a0aRCRD&autonomy_kw=anniversary%20party&rsc=header_8) and I plan on displaying photos of them in some way.

Does anyone have any good ideas or tips?  Anything about recipes, decorations, throwing surprise parties, anniversary parties, or parties in general would be helpful!  Smiley

I wouldn't think they would need to be huge to look good.  You might play around with the size of the dots.  If you are doing a smaller one, you will want smaller dots - the more dots, the better detail you will get in the picture.  Also the biggest thing is to make sure that when you cut the pages the lines are completely straight so that you don't have gaps when you hang it.  Hope that helps!

Ok, I'll try playing around with it.  Thanks! Smiley

That looks great!

I have tried doing this and mine never turn out.  What is your secret?  When I've tried, I've wanted mine smaller.  Do they have to be big to actually look good?

Great job!
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Homemade Sarong/Bathing Suit coverup? on: May 15, 2007 05:01:19 PM
Does anyone know a pattern for a homemade sarong?  Or just how to make one.  I want a longer one, probably mid-calf and can't find any in stores.  Anything would be a great help!!

Thanks! Smiley

6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Slideshow for my friend on: June 01, 2006 12:30:18 PM
I am currently in the last week of my first year of college.  One of the girls who I have become super close with is not coming back to the same school next year.  I decided to make a little gift for her.  I have most of it planned out.
  • I made her a picture slideshow of all of us.
  • She collects charms, so I'm going to get a friendship charm
  • I bought a picture frame to put our picture into and I'm going to personalize it
  • I'm going to buy stationary, envelopes and such.
The only problem I'm facing is with the slideshow.  I have finished making it, except I need to add some songs.  What are some good songs to add?  I've been searching the internet and have found some.  However, I don't want all sad songs that are just gonna make her cry.  I'd really like some good upbeat songs that go along with happy friend pictures. 

Any ideas?

8  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / What can I do with my wall? on: February 01, 2006 08:55:12 AM
I live in a college dorm and my *new* roommate recently changed our room around.  (She kept complaining)  We had our beds bunked and they are now down and our room is tiny!!

When the beds were bunked I just had the pictures and the corkboard I made on the wall.  The other bed was just above the pictures (can you picture this?) and the calendar and clock was not there.  Anyway, I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to make this look nice again.  I want to keep my pictures, but they can be on the wall in a different way.  Anything thing else would be nice too.  Thanks! Smiley
