21  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: UnderWater Arrangements Bridal Shower on: August 03, 2008 08:44:55 AM
Believe it or not, most of them lasted quite a few days.  I didn't keep most of these after the event.  I had one that I brought home and refilled with water.  I kept it on my back deck in the shade for over a week.  The stick that was submerged started to grow fuzzy mold on it, which then turned the water milky looking.  So all in all, they lasted a long time.  I created these the morning of the event.

Thank you

Here is the jist of the evening from my other post:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=260859.0

I didn't have money for any flowers or anything, so I thought outside the box.  I already had some glass vases, the bride's mom gave me some, and I only purchased a couple of them.  I then collected all kinds of weeds, flowers, sticks, etc. and created nature themed underwater arrangements. 

I was offered a side job within a week (a year away though) and asked to start my own business so that I can do this more often.  The owner of the property I rented (his wife too) couldn't stop talking about them. 

I have surprised myself so much with this bridal shower.  Before the shower, I was the one that admired and dreamed of doing the things that people do on this website.  I can't believe I have something I feel is worth sharing. 

Thanks for looking


23  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Succulent Bridal Shower Party Favors on: August 01, 2008 08:41:42 PM
I hosted a bridal shower for my friend a few weeks ago.  The party was a wine tasting party, in a very old house/bed & breakfast historical farm on the water.  It was an amazing setting.  The party favors that I came up with was to give out succulent plants, mini terrariums if you will in a wine glass.  I figured they are the easiest plants to take care of, as long as you give them good dirt.  So after consulting stormthecastle.com (just found it via google search and emailed the guy), I was able to get the right layers of medium to plant the succulents in.  He now has directions and links to my photos on his site. 

I also had left over plants and planted them in my sea shells with the same "dirt". 

I then used an oil marker to write the names of the bride and groom, with a heart in the middle of them.  I then painted the heart red with glass paint.  It looks very good.  I have never done anything like this before, and quite frankly i have completely set myself aback.  I am gaining a lot more confidence that I can do anything I set myself up for! 

I also did these water arrangements, but I will post those on another link.  I'll just say, I am starting a side business and may possibly be doing a wedding in the next year already. 

I figured this was so easy, and such a great hit, I knew it would be nice of me to share the idea. 

Thanks for looking

Your mirrors are very nice.  I haven't done glass etching in years.  I am motivated now.

You could always use that hint of red that is seen in it to make the sides pop out.  But if you want the tile to be center of attention, sticking to one of the other tile colors is better.  I think this is absolutely amazing.

This is by far one of the most "out of the box" thinking cakes I've seen in a long time.  Most people concentrate on the "decoration" part of things, but your presentation is amazing. 

Great job, one lucky girl!

I am by no means a sewer whatsoever (26, and haven't done anything since the teddy bear in 7th grade!), but I might have a clue as to your problem.  First of all, your clothing is off the hook.  It's not even my style, and i would want to make it my style!  But I am going to be a bridesmaid this Saturday, and our dress seam lines looked exactly the way yours did when the bride received them.  We sent them back and the company said it was due to the clothing being pulled too tightly as it was pulled through the sewing machine. 

But like I said, I have no clue.  I don't even know that that "line" of sewing is called. 

Once again, I love your clothes and wish I had 1/2 your talent!

28  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: Baked Oatmeal! on: July 27, 2008 06:44:59 AM
I made this recipe yesterday morning, and just ate the rest of it this morning.  My fiance, 2 year old and I all give this recipe 5 stars!  I added some soaked whole grains, extra raisins, and it was superb!

Once again - 5 STARS!

There is a great baked oatmeal recipe on Allrecipes.com.  My daycare provider makes homemade oatmeal with cut up apples in it.  The kids love it and stay full longer.

This is a really neat idea.  I have a backscratcher a friend brought me from Hawaii that already has a woodburnt flower pattern.  Now i know what i can use it for, seeing that i haven't needed it to scratch my back since he gave it to me.

Great way to think outside the BOX!
