1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / HELP! Slight save the date crisis! on: February 01, 2008 07:18:04 PM
Okay, I discovered the website www.picnik.com from some other Craftsters, and I decided to make our save the date magnets with it.

Here is where the problem is: Our wedding date was originally Dec 20th, 2008, so I made this picture to be put on a magnet. Our theme is blue, white, silver, snowflakes, etc.


Now we have changed our wedding date, and Picnik no longer has the snowflake stamps! I don't have any kind of fancy photo editing software, like Photoshop, where I could just put a snowflake stamp on there.

I made this photo with the Valentine's stamps they had. Does it look bad? Should I try to find some way to put the snowflakes on there, or do you think it will even matter?   Huh
2  UNITED STATES / Tennessee / HELP! Need wedding venue in Knoxville on: December 17, 2007 10:18:34 PM
Okay, so the wedding is going to be December 20th, 2008. We were going to have it at our church, but they won't let us schedule a wedding for December  Undecided and I have already started getting decorations, etc. together for that day, so it ain't changing.

Now what I need are some good ideas for a wedding venue in Knoxville (or around). Probably going to have around 100-150 people, so I need something sort-of big.

Let me know of any good ideas yall have! Thanks!
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Lucky's Sea Creatures on: November 06, 2007 09:34:18 PM
For Lucky's 1st birthday, he had a pirate party! I decided that knitting some sea creatures was the way to go.



Here is the octopus. I got the pattern somewhere on here. His mom says that he loves to hold it while he sleeps.



After much frustration, I finally finished this crab! I made up the pattern as I went, and I have never really made up any kind of knitted thing like this. Lucky likes to put this one in his dump truck and push it around the house.

Here is the link to the whole gift! http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=206526.msg2206408;topicseen#msg2206408
4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Pirate Stuff for Shane and Lucky! on: November 06, 2007 09:27:12 PM
My fiance, Shane, and his nephew, Lucky (yes that is his real name lol) have birthdays that are one day apart.
For their birthdays this year, Shane's 20th and Lucky's 1st, they had a sort-of joint birthday party. The theme was PIRATES!

Anyways, I had to come up with some cool pirate themed gifts. Here is what I gave them.



I made them each a treasure chest filled with treasure! I bought unfinished wood chests at AC Moore, then painted them brown. I painted the inside gold with gold spray paint, and I freehanded their names on the front with some gold leaf paint my grandmother had. I kinda messed up and sprayed some of the outside, but then I decided it looked kinda cool. I stood way back and sprayed all over to give it sort of a glittery look.



The stuff I got Shane mostly came from Deadmentellnotales.com. I got him a pirate shower curtain (which was his big request), a Pirate USA flag, gold dubloons, mini Pirates playing cards, a Pirate Weapon poster, some Pirate money, and a parrott (toy from Burger King!)



I thought this Pirate money was pretty funny! I bought two so I could frame them. I would've rather used gold letters, but the silver were the only ones I had at the time.




Here are Lucky's goodies. I got him two kids Pirate books, then I knitted an octopus, from a pattern I got on here somewhere, and I winged a pattern for a crab. Both were done in Red Heart Super Saver.


Thanks for looking!
P.S. First real post!
