it looks great!  my husband and i are in a similar situation and i would LOVE some advice.  we are closing on a house next month, and the kitchen is very dated.  while i'd like to try and keep the cabinets (they are solid wood, and in good shape, i'll just want to paint them), i want the countertops, appliances and carpeting (yes, carpeting -- the only room in the house with it) to go.  i want to do as much as possible on my own, but i don't know where to start, and we want to do it as cheaply as possible. any good tips for a first time homebuyer?  it just seems overwhelming to me when i think about tackling it.  i know that's sort of a broad and annoying question to ask, but any feedback you have would be great!
4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Birthday Party Decoration Ideas? on: January 19, 2005 08:58:29 AM

I am in charge of throwing our once monthly office birthday party next week, where we celebrate all the birthday's of the last month.

I am looking for some creative ideas for decorations or theme without going overboard.  It's really only a 20-25 minute gathering in our break area so I don't want to go crazy, but wanted to think of some crafty ways to decorate.  We'll probably have a  cake and coffee, plus maybe another dessert.

My one idea was to have a "beat the winter blahs" theme, with like tropical decorations and some cool tropical drinks or something. maybe find a recipe for an appropriate dessert. Is that too overdone?

Any fab ideas from you crafty folks?

Is there a tutorial around here somewhere that I am not finding?
I hesitate to ask these questions that are probably everywhere.  But I really did look this time, I swear!

Thanks for taking the time to reply.

Thanks, everyone, for their feedback!

I made the scarf, complete with fringe that I did not knot.  I, too, actually liked the way it looked when some of it unraveled, although I don't know how much my sister will appreciate it if it gets all over her coat!

Of course, I gave it away before taking a pic.  But she liked it a lot, I think!

so, i am finishing up a scarf i am making for my sister for christmas (nothing like the last minute, huh?).  i am using this really pretty lion brand homespun yarn.  i usually put fringe on the ends of my scarves (mainly to hide the fact that i started too tightly and the ends have curled a bit).  does anyone have experience using homespun to make fringe?  i am wondering if it just unravels and will turn into a bushy mess.  thoughts?

thank you -- happy holidays!

9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Static Cling Sheets for Crafting? DO they exist? on: December 21, 2004 09:02:10 AM
Hi All:

Do blank static cling sheets that can be used to write on (permanently) exist?  Was just thinking that it would be nice to make some, kind of like reusable stickers, with nice quotes and pictures drawn on them to give to people, to put on mirrors, windows, etc.  Am I making sense?

If they exist, where can I get them?  Office supply?  Craft Store?
