1  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Something going on...? on: April 14, 2009 07:54:04 PM
Are you ladies working on Craftster?

All of the ads have disappeared...
And I checked that my AdBlock is off for this site.

And then I went to the homepage... saw some ads, but the whole page was skinnier with a lot more of the blue showing on the edges. [I have a widescreen laptop, so that might have been it. But that usually doesn't happen.]

I just wanted to make sure everything's okay.... and that I'm not losing it.
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / 3 Diaper Cakes! on: November 09, 2008 02:55:23 PM
One of the girls in our church small group is expecting, so naturally we needed to have a church baby shower for her. Her mom organized, but us girls in the group helped with decorating and food. I made a simple fruit tray, but my friend Jenny and I put together three (!) diaper cakes for her. One pink, one yellow, and one blue... they don't know what they're having.

Here they are!





3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Basketweave Baby Blanket [Pics with Baby Added!] on: November 01, 2008 05:13:32 PM
I made this for my beautiful goddaughter.
I started with a 3x3 basketweave in Lionbrand Homespun. But then I ran out of the purple so I added the multicolor as a thick border since it didn't look very blanket-ish.

Here are the promised pics with my goddaughter:














And a fun closeup



Once I get a pic of her with the blanket, I'll be sure to post it.
4  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Only 11 Recent Unread Posts? on: October 31, 2008 05:02:14 AM
For some reason when I click 'recent unread posts', I only see 11 on the list and there is only 1 page of unread posts. Now I know I spend a lot of time here, but I don't think I'm that good.

Did something change? Or is something wrong?


Here's a screenshot:

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / WIP - Lace Table Runner on: October 01, 2008 08:35:36 PM
So for my mom's Christmas present, I'm working on a lace table runner. I started at the end of August and am starting to taper off with my motivation. So I figure, "What a better place to get re-motivated?!"  Grin

Here are the details and photos:

Hook: 1.95mm
Thread: Size 10
Pattern: "Table Runner" from the Ultimate Book of Pineapples [with my adjustments because either the pattern is wrong or I missed something... but it still works]

8  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / Spider Plant on: August 21, 2008 05:34:54 AM
My friend gave me a spider plant offshoot which I let grow roots and planted.
Its slowly growing, but now I've noticed that there are these small flies [around the size of fruit flies, maybe smaller] that have taken a liking to the plant and the surrounding dirt. I'm not sure if this is a good thing. I thought I'd ask here.
9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Fancy Dinner Party on: August 18, 2008 04:37:27 PM
So my friends love to cook. And they love the opportunity to cook fancy meals. And I love opportunities to host. So we're having our second annual fancy dinner party this coming Sunday [the 24th]. As I plan [and scour this board for ideas], I thought I'd post our progression.

- Guest list [done - 11 people]
- Menu [in progress - French theme]
- Seating arrangements [done]
- Place cards
- Menu cards

I'm waiting on the final menu.
But I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas for me. Just simple ideas. Decorations and such. Anything.

Here are some pics of last year's dinner party:

10  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Limbo on: July 01, 2008 05:57:45 AM
The Limbo Board is supposed to be a place where you can only see your post... right?

Well I've noticed that every once in awhile when I'm in the "Recent Unread Posts"... someone's post shows up there. There was one today.

Here's a screen shot of it...

I'm not sure why it happens. But I thought you guys should know.
