Amazing!  Smiley
I am going to raid the little recycling bin in my dept. (company does not recycle so we must do it ourselves!) and make these for my caffiene-obsessed co-worker!
23  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: Help a Aussie girl out. Suggestions for drummer. on: December 04, 2007 09:32:09 AM
My dad's a drummer; last year I made him a poster out of some art I did: http://1121.org/lj/dadxmas1.jpg This year I'm planning on making a clock out of a cymbal. You could make something else out a cymbal, or a drumhead even. Maybe decoupage a bunch of photos of you and your friend onto the drumhead so it can be a hanging photo frame or something.

I just wanted to say THANK YOU for this idea. My boyfriend replaced a broken drumhead a few months ago and for some reason I made him keep the old one-- it's been sitting behind our couch ever since then ... but now I have a really good use for it! Woohoo!

Yay redheads! I love the green, espresso and copper combo for the BMs.. green always looks so great with red hair Smiley (that whole color wheel thing I guess... hah) And the flowers really pop out too! Gorgeous! 
And Gettysburg is amazing, isn't it? Some of my family lives not too far from there.

Kpooh, thanks so much for the coupon suggestion! I ended up going in a bit of a different direction with it, but here's how they turned out (can't post pics yet, so I included the links).
My friend's already been griping (jokingly, I hope) about having to discuss wedding details, so I thought these would be funny for them.
I made them last night, cut 'em out and then brought them to work with me today. Just as I'd hoped, we had a slow day, so I raided  my co-worker's drawer full of crafty items for the stickers and streamers to tie the tags on.


Here's the text of the coupons since you can exactly read it on the pictures.

His coupon:
Let's face it Dan. This wedding isn't going to plan itself. So in the rare instance that Suzie decides to include you on important decisions like date, time, place, or type of flowers, you have one chance to get off scot-free. When this coupon is presented, you have the entire day off from anything wedding-related. Enjoy!
Not to be combined with any other offers. Void where prohibited. Expires on wedding day.

Her coupon:
Planning a wedding can be stressful. A girl just needs to be pampered every once in awhile to relieve the tension. So, just present this coupon and your fiance Dan will be at your beck and call, doing anything he can to make your day as stress-free and comfortable as possible. Whether it be breakfast in bed, a bubble bath, a glass of wine, a three-course meal, or all of the above!
Coupon may be re-used at any time. Coupon does not expire.

Hehehe, had to put the disclaimers in there, I write ads for a living.  Smiley

A friend of mine wrote on her invitation that the reception was "casual, but please no flip-flops, jeans or shorts". If you're not comfortable writing all of that, maybe you could just call it "dressy casual" ? I guess everyone would interpret that differently, but I think it covers all the bases.

Love those ideas, especially the coupon book!
Thank you!  Grin

Adorable! I'll have to think of an excuse to do this immediately!   Smiley

Am I the only one who thinks these look like heart shaped rainbow-colored Spree or Sweettarts? I totally want to eat them.

Finally, I have a reason to post here! Smiley I've been lurking around for awhile and soaking in all the wonderful ideas, even though I myself am not engaged (yet.. we've been together 4 years... could be soon??)
Well, I'm getting to the age where all my friends are getting engaged/married. One of my good friends from high school/college proposed to his girlfriend recently, and his aunt insisted on throwing them a fancy dinner. So we're going to the dinner, but of course, he told me not to bring a gift.
I'd still like to bring/make something small for them, even though I know it's not the norm.. I was thinking maybe some sugar cookies with little rings decorated on them? Any thoughts or ideas?  Cheesy

Sorry for the incredibly lengthy backstory.. hehe.

I know this is a bit late, but I suggest whipping up a batch of Beerbutter Floats... if not for this purpose, then just for the fact that they are yummy! The recipes vary if you search online, and usually it's served hot, but my co-worker brought this ice-cream version into work in honor of Harry's birthday (I was unaware that she was such a hardcore fan!) and it was DELICIOUS!  Smiley

1 pint Vanilla Ice Cream
1/2 C  Butterscotch flavored ice cream Topping
1/4 C  Butter at room temperature
1TBS  Brown Sugar
1 tsp   Pumpkin Pie Spice
3 C     Cream Soda
