Do you knit, crochet, sew, quilt, or do some other fabric-related craft?  You could do a blanket or some throw pillows for her. 
422  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / 5.07 DIY wedding crafts on: June 10, 2007 12:47:42 AM
Got married last month and here are the DIY items I did.  Names and faces blocked out.

Eight-page book style program.  I used 8.5" x 11" cardstock for the cover and the same size text weight paper for the inside.  I used a bone folder to make the crease, punched holes 1/3 and 2/3 down the spine, and threaded and tied an 18" length of ribbon for each one.

Menu cards
Paper from Paper Source.

Guest book
This is a semi-DIY.  I purchased a journal from a bookstore, added one of our engagement pics and our date and names.

Place cards
Paper from Paper Source.  Calligraphy pen from Sheaffer.

Table names
Each table name had a framed picture of a different museum in DC, my hometown.  Frames from Ikea.  The pics are publicity stills off of Web sites.  I also included a factoid about the museum.  I included one for the Smithsonian Castle here.

The tins are from Favor Online.  They are filled with mints from Metro Candy, and the labels were from Office Depot.  The label has the name, date, and clip art of the Capitol Building (hometown again).

Maid of honor gift
Link to another Craftster thread on a crochet blanket I made for my maid of honor.

Thanks for reading!

A few years ago, Martha Stewart's mag did an article on cereal cakes.  I recall the cover photo had not only puffed rice, but also Cocoa Puffs and other cereals too.  The article was in the regular mag, not the Wedding version.  I saw it in the MS' Web site archives a while ago; it may still be there.

I haven't seen a donut cake live, but IMHO, I don't think they photograph well.  That may not matter to you.  The photos I've seen have donuts that tend to sag under their own weight over time, making the stacks crooked.  The photos were were also pretty dark and green, which only made the dribbled chocolate icing look sort of like moss growing on the stacks.  Not particularly appetizing, I'm afraid.  Perhaps someone who has done this themselves or been to a wedding where this was done has had better results.  At least with the cereal bars, they're pliable and you can press them into the shape you want.

Just my $0.02...

That is great.  You should definitely send one in!  But keep a copy or at least the pattern for yourself.  Knowing Conan's self-deprecating sense of humor, he might have Max and Joel use it as a voodoo doll and do something nutty like stick pins in it or run it over with a truck!   Wink

This is fascinating. I don't have the Stoller book.  What's the link between crochet and prostitution?

In a Web search, I found some links in which male prison inmates are taught to crochet in order to reduce their isolation, reduce stress levels, and teach budgeting and planning skills.  Their work is donated to charity.  in one of the articles, one of the inmates says he was taught to crochet as a boy.

That looks really comfy.  What yarn did you use?
429  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: I love pineapples! (Doily of sorts) on: June 07, 2007 05:05:04 AM
Wow, that looks flawless!

Wow, that's a lot of stuff going on.  I'm impressed! 

If you are feeling overwhelmed, I suggest focusing on the ones with the more pressing deadlines.  Maybe those would be the holiday ones, since they are gifts to other people.
