11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Summer is for... \../ METAL \../ - A Gallery of Hardcore Craftiness on: July 25, 2009 10:40:25 AM
I received from Bunnyface! And she is TOO METAL FOR ONE HAND! \... .../

First, the group shot:


Yes, you saw right, those are a pack of Heavy Metal Playing Cards.
With Dio on the back, of course.
These are totally amazing. Every single card has a picture of a different band on it, and you can tell Bunnyface put some thought into who was on which cards. My favorites: Lemmy is the Ace of Spades, Girlschool is the Queen of Spades, Iron Maiden is the King of Spades. King Diamond is the King of Diamonds. All the Hearts are Hair Metal. And the Jokers are Spinal Tap and Dethkolk! (I'm really happy that she included a chart to list who's who!)

Bunnyface knew that I collected quirky plushies, and that I really wanted a metal singer plush. I didn't know so many other people would want them, too, haha! She made me King Diamond!

Complete with a little book of fun facts! And he's even got his leg bone cross mic handle, which made me incredibly giddy. I've been carrying him around since I got him, haha, and my metalhead fiance and metalhead maid of honor both think he's amazing.

Another thing I collect is quirky underoos. I mentioned this, but figured that making underoos for someone else might be awkward, so I really wasn't expecting FOUR PAIRS OF AMAZING EMBROIDERED PANTIES!

Three of them have the faces of members of Poison on the back, and their names on the front. But, you ask, aren't there four guys in Poison? Included was a note (which cracked me up) which read, "Sorry we didn't come as a band - C.C. is onstage playing a solo. He'll join us as soon as he's done shredding!" Apparently, he wasn't finished in time, so that pair will be along later.
I had no idea how Bunnyface would work in my favorite Poison quote, but she, brilliant craftster that she is, made it into the coolest pair of underoos I may ever wear.

I absolutely love that the word "talk" is in bright blue, 'cause when Bret says it, he totally squeaks on that word.

I told my brother about how normally, when we get clothing in swaps, we do action shots, but I didn't think I'd be doing one for these, and he suggested modeling them as headgear.
Is it bad that I was tempted?

I tried not to get too pic heavy, but if you ladies (and gents, if we have any) want to see more, I'd be happy to oblige.

Thank you Bunnyface![/color]

If you didn't want to do an empty seat, you could put her picture and/or a vase of flowers on the altar, with a note in your program like, "The flowers on the altar are in loving memory of DH's mother"

My hubby-to-be was actually kind of pissed when he learned that guys don't normally get engagement rings of their own, haha! But at the same time, he rarely wears jewelry, and didn't actually want a ring. (He's afraid he would lose it.)

I proposed to him with a piece of his favorite pizza. XD
14  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: Need ideas for an odd bach party theme on: July 17, 2009 01:00:23 PM
I would use the cookie theme to focus on 'good fortunes'. Decorate a take-out box special for the bride to be and have the guests write their own 'fortunes' or wishes for her future marriage. She can keep them in her special box!

What a fabulous idea! I might steal that for my bridal shower, haha!

I feel like there's potential for some sort of game based on opening fortune cookies to find instructions inside, but it's just not gelling in my mind. Maybe something like a scavenger hunt? Or something like they do at college orientations, if the guests don't all know each other - the 'fortunes' in the cookies could say things like, "Find someone with a birthday in November" or somesuch.

Or you could set up take out boxes and have guests try and toss fortune cookies (or beanbags, or anything else that will fit) into them, and have a prize for whoever does best.

These ideas are so incredibly amazing! I absolutely love Alice in Wonderland, but I don't think I can do my wedding in that theme. (We've come up with at least twenty different "themes", and probably won't end up using a single one...) I can't wait to see pictures of the finished event!

WOW! That is all sorts of amazing! How long did it take you to prepare all that?
17  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Chocolate coverd strawberry cake on: July 16, 2009 07:29:41 AM
That cake is beautiful, and it sounds like it's delicious, too! The piping may not be perfect on the lettering or the flowers, but with the quilted texture of the cake, it makes it look almost like hand-stitched embroidery.

Man, I want a piece of cake.

I'm working away any chance I get!  I started a project today, my first pretty complicated (for me at least) pattern without my mom right there to help me.  So far so good I think.  And Mama's just a phone call away if I get really stuck.

Haha, isn't it nice to know you have Sewing Tech Support?

My god, Meleriffic, you really did out do yourself! That package is incredible! I want everything in it! (Well, with my character, Badger, in place of tar3820's Ed.)

APPARENTLY when we moved in they neglected to tell us there isn't a key for the mailbox. My package is here but I can't get to it! It's taunting me.

Oh no! That's terrible!
