1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Mother's Day / The ex's mother...?! on: March 03, 2009 05:01:31 AM
What do you make/give for the mother of the guy you recently broke up with (mutual decision, sort of)? We dated for a looong time and I get on really well with his mother, so I want to recognise how much she means to me. (Or is that too weird?)

It would have to be something postable (mailable Grin), because she lives in the middle of nowhere and I can't get there easily.

Any ideas? I'd be grateful for absolutely any suggestions!
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Decorating supplies gift box...? O_o on: November 30, 2008 08:43:15 AM
My boyfriend's sister and I get on quite well and I want to give her something this Christmas, but she doesn't seem to need anything! I noticed that she has an old dress-up box in her room that has seen better days, so I was thinking of buying the supplies she'd need to redecorate it and putting them together into a gift box, along with a voucher for a day of decorating with me. Sounds crazy, but is it good-crazy or bad-crazy?! And what should I put into a box like that? I haven't really revamped anything quite so big before!

Any help would be uberly appreciated ^^
3  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Halloween costume ideas for 2008 on: October 20, 2008 09:52:27 AM
Last year I was a mime and didn't speak for the entire night, which was fun for me, but confusing for everyone else xD But this year...? Eep! I don't know about you guys, but in Ireland all the college hallowe'en parties I go to are held in nightclubs around Dublin city, which means most of my ideas are bust because there's no way they'd survive the packed dancefloor *pouts* So i'm stuck, because I have a floor-length tulle dress and giant fairy wings but they're not the most flexible! Anyone got any ideas for a cool (as in 'not warm'!) costumes that I could dance the night away in? Preferably ones that I could create in the next two days!
4  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / A quick colourful robot quilt on: August 15, 2008 05:16:33 AM
Okay, I know that this hardly qualifies as a quilt beacuse I didn't have enough time to do much work on it, but at least there's a bit of patchworking ^^ My boyfriend found an apartment for college way earlier than I expected, so I only had a week to come up with a little colour! The result? My first ever quilt... *pets it*

5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Re: 365 Love Quotes on: February 05, 2008 05:59:09 AM
Doubt thou the stars are fire
Doubt that the sun doth move
Doubt truth to be a liar
But never doubt I love.

-- 'Hamlet', by W. Shakespeare
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: "_____ in a box" gift ideas. on: December 19, 2007 04:03:46 PM
Eep, I need suggestions! My boyfriend loveloveloves New Year's, but this year he's going to America to see his brother and we won't be able to spend it together, which he's really disappointed about. So, the plan is to make him a box full of things that would remind him of me and New Year's eve/day simultaneously.

I already have:
Little photo cubes of us
A letter for him to read at midnight
An A4 photo of me, puckered up ^^
His favourite chocolates...

But now I'm stuck! Any other ideas would be wonderific and fantabulous Cheesy

Yay! I'm going to own one of these soon ^^ Needless to say I'm quite a fan... xD The people of Dublin won't know what to make of me!
8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Cuter Than Me! on: June 24, 2007 09:22:19 AM
Hola Cheesy I'm new to this topic starting thing, so I thought I'd start off with a bang!
Meet my mini-me, also known as Meadhbh ^^

I made her for my boyfriend, because whenever I ask him what he'd like as a gift, he always insists he just wants me. I'm good at twisting his words!

In case anyone was curious (you can probably tell xD) I made her as I went along, I didn't have a clue, let alone a pattern, lol. Examining some of my little sister's dolls helped, but she wasn't impressed!
