Sorry to be so "general" with this topic, but I need party ideas. The thing is, it needs to be at least slightly cheap and easy. The truth is, I've never had a party where something hasn't gone wrong. NEVER. So, basically all my parties have sucked. I've had people fight, get out of control, get upset, and many other things. I've tried having a theme at every party, but NO ONE LISTENS to me when I tell them to be quiet so I can tell them what's going on. Basically, the only way I could have a successful "party" is if I only had me and one other person. I'M SO UPSET ABOUT THIS! Sorry about my rant, just, please help me! Any themes, tips, tricks will work for me. I'm desperate!
How about a shoe swap? I was thinking for this, you could decorate, recon, and create a shoe with a theme that fits your partner and stuff it with things they like, like necklaces, magnets, or a belt. Maybe even a mini-journal. =] Whatcha' think of the idea? I couldn't host it, at least not in July, but anyone is welcome to use this idea. ^^
Okay, well, I saw this ADORABLE knitted sock monkey and I wanted to make it. The only problem is that well, I don't know how to knit. First off, are there patterns needed in knitting? If so, does anyone know where I could find a sock monkey pattern and instructions?
Well, I designed my own little doll and I was hoping for some tips beforehand so I don't mess up TOO badly. Also, any tips for making your own patterns? I know it's mainly a trial and error, but anything other than that? I just want to thank everyone in advance for (hopefully) the help they give. =) PEACE!
Not all of them are super crafty or even good ideas, but at the moment, I'm deperate since Father's Day is a day away. Here are my ideas and which one(s) should I choose to make my dad?:
*Stuffie(since I'm learning it) *Shirt *Wallet *Picture Frame *Bookmark *"Gadget" Holder(He has two pagers, a cell phone, and a Blackberry) *Organizer(Either shelf or folder; He's super unorganized) *Keyboard Key Necklace(Maybe it'll say "DAD" on it) *Casual Shoes(He has absolutely NONE) *A Dad ATC *A Love Tin(I found this idea somewhere on here where you decorate a tin and stick a bunch of inspirational quotes and fun stuff in it)
Well, which ones should I use? Also, any other ideas would be cool. =)
Crap. Only two days to Father's Day and I have ZIP! Whenever I asked him what he wanted for Father's Day he said, "World peace." I obviously can't help with world peace. For my mom I got her a bunch of stuff. Why do dads have to be hard to buy for? Anyway, I need ideas. ANY ideas! Even if they take a while to make/get or whatever, a late present is better than no present. =) My dad likes poker, he's obsessed with the Cardinals (baseball), works in troubleshooting at Sisters of Mercy, and every now and then has a beer (not a big beer drinker though). Ideas Please!!!
MY IDEA I NEED HELP WITH: Also, one idea I have, since he has SO much crap and it always ends up all over the kitchen table, is to make him an organizer thing for his papers. How do I do that? Any tutorial links?
Okay, well, I was brainstorming some creatures just for fun (and I was dying to make one after I saw what everyone else did) and after a long, frustrating, 30 minutes of thinking and crumpling up paper, I came up with a creature; Watercats, as in WATERMELON-Cats. I drew a picture, but I do not have a scanner at my dad's house so it basically looks like this: Head is shaped like half a watermelon with cat ears, body is a regular watermelon, small paws, and a tail. Whatcha' think? =) I will post a picture as soon as I can too.
