1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / How do you decorate the OUTSIDE of your home for the holidays??? on: August 13, 2008 04:18:49 PM
Anyone have neat projects, crafts, or decorating planned?

What do you do outside???  I just love looking at what others have done!

2  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Boys Halloween Birthday Party -- Help me brainstorm! on: August 06, 2008 07:55:14 AM
My son is 7, inviting all his friends and cub scouts to his birthday party here at the house.   All the kids will be dressing up in their costumes.  Probably having it the weekend before Halloween.

I cant make it scary-gory as it will be a bunch of 1st graders, but want it to be Halloween-y.

We think we are going to have it at night so they can play flashlight tag...

Any ideas for decoration (frugal appreciated), games, activities, crafts, etc???

I saw on here someone made a giant spider web using rope and zip ties.  I'm definately doing that one!  I saw the eyeball wreath.  I treied to make the eyeball wreath, but mine looks like a 3 year old made it.  Sad  LOL

I'd love some ideas on what to do to the front yard.  It's a small front yard, but I want it to look really really cool. 

The problem is, the cool stuff is too scary for 1st graders.  And the non-scary stuff is too babyish.  He'd kill me if I decorated with winnie the pooh or somehting, LOL

Can anyone help me???

3  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / what do to with a bunch of 1/2 size mason jars??? on: August 02, 2008 08:40:34 AM
These aren't the regular size, they're half size, kinda short and squatty.  I have a bunch of these, hubby is threatening to throw them away if I dont use them.

I dont can, nobody trusts homemade canning around me anyway... "botchulism"...  Roll Eyes they'll just throw it away if I can something, and I dont want to waste all my time, money and energy to have it thrown away.   Embarrassed  Veggies and fruits are sooo expensive here, even at the farmers markets anyway.

What can I do with these cans? 

I'd love to do something at Christmas time but they're so small.  Only about 3-4 inches tall, regular width. 

Any ideas?  I went through all my craft books, all I could find was jams, seasonings (too expensive for jars that big), etc... 

I thought about the dry cookie or muffin mixes, but they're too small for that.  (even tried it myself)  And I'm kinda burned out on that craft project anyway.

I thought about some infused booze, but it's so small it's not really a gift, more like a giant shot.  LOL

Crafts are good too if theres some kind of craft you can do wtih these.

Any thought appreciated!

HELPPPPPPPPPP!!!   Grin Grin Grin Grin
4  COOKING / Dessert / Need cake ideas a 9 year old and 7 year old can make for contest on: July 18, 2008 05:14:08 PM
I need to find some boyish cakes that are simple enough for boys to make for a cake decorating contest.  They're supposed to do as much of the work as possible (I do the oven stuff to keep them from being burned, but otherwise it's all them)  So it does have to be easy but I really want something DIFFERENT.

Does anyone have pics or ideas for us?

Thank you so much!

This is what one of them did last year for cub scouts and won silliest
5  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Do Raggy strip quilts count? on: June 28, 2008 04:09:38 PM
I made my first ever raggy quilt. 

Did it for my boys who are obsessed with Finding Nemo.  Now I wish I had made it larger since they all 3 fight nonstop to be under it at the same time!

From start to finish, got it done in under 5 hours, and that's with 3 boys helping!  That's about all the time I can manage nowadays before I put it in the corner and forget about it.  (dont look in my closet of shame, please!)

Here's my next project I plan to copy in CORDUROY!  OOOH, I just LOVE corduroy!  I can't wait!

Used the book from

And no, I'm not the author, it's not my site.  I just really like making these!
