1  Beaded Moccasins in Shoes: Completed Projects by 50srocknrollergirl on: August 26, 2010 09:48:25 AM
Haven't posted in a loooong time but thought I'd share these!  The butterfly moccasins were my first pair for my niece, the flower ones were for her mom.  They wore them at a few pow wows this year.  Beading takes forever!  I need more practice.

2  Knight Birthday Party *PICS!* in Party Planning by 50srocknrollergirl on: May 17, 2009 08:39:59 PM
Knights was this years theme!  Here are the pics.


Pinata we made

Cake.  I hate doing cakes because I suck but he loved it so that's all that matters.


Treasure chest for the kings treasure chest hunt

The kids were pretty excited when they opened it up.

The castle.  It was supposed to be more like a real castle but the wind ruined my plans and it turned out to be a long tunnel tied to the porch. 

The girls made princess hats and there were crown crafts for the boys but there was no sitting them down for a craft after they had their swords and sheilds.  They played swords the entire time.

slaying the dragon.  The littlest girl in pink was scared of the pinata and wouldn't go near it till it was smashed!

The boys got knight filled goodybags and the girls got unicorn items in theirs.  I had other crafts and games planned but they just played swords in the castle which was fine by me!

3  Slay the Dragon Pinata in Completed Projects by 50srocknrollergirl on: May 08, 2009 10:56:23 PM
Wow I haven't posted here in a loooong time! 

My little sister and I made this for the 5 year olds birthday next weekend.  He chose a Knights theme!  It turned out bigger than I thought it would.  It's huge, over 5 feet long.  But the kids will be exited.

Here's ALL the party pics: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=305416.0

We made some today(me & the kids) and it makes a nice rainy day project!  Everyone loved them.  We used star tins from the dollar tree and frosting coloring from the wedding section at walmart.  The frosting is crappy, I know, the green is too dark and I did it really fast but the kids were getting anxious...and so was I!

5  Carnival Birthday Party (pic overload) in Party Planning by 50srocknrollergirl on: May 15, 2008 12:45:40 PM
We had the carnival party yesterday!  It was a lot of work but it was fun.  I think we had 9 games set up, face painting, cotton candy, & popcorn.  Each thing costed 1 ticket, then they won different tickets at each game to buy prizes.  My sister & I made the army tank pinata.  It has nothing to do with a carnival but it's what the birthday boy wanted!  I bought a bunch of Carousel MP3's and blasted them with loud speakers.  I was thinking I needed a bounce house but they had so much to do so it was all good.  Here are the pics:
Invites: And it's supposed to say WEDNESDAY!  Oopsie..

6  Gumball machine candy dishes - Easy gift idea in Completed Projects by 50srocknrollergirl on: May 12, 2008 09:52:39 PM
Not an actual gumball machine!    The tops come off so they are just candy dishes.  These are centerpieces for a carnival themed birthday we are having on Wednesday.  They are going to be filled with m&m's, gum drops, mints, & gumballs(duh!)
They cost under $5 each to make using a flower pot, flower pot saucer thingy, glass fish bowl, wooden ball, & paint.  Oh yeah, and the glue I used was E6000.  It would be best to use a sealer or clear coat stuff after they are painted.  You can paint them soooo many ways but I just stuck to solid colors for the party.  The guests can enter their names in a drawing for a chance to win one...but I'm keeping the green one just because it's GREEN!  Post yours here if you try it!

7  Birthday Party Invitation Carnival theme in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by 50srocknrollergirl on: May 03, 2008 07:02:16 PM
These are for a 5th Birthday party.  I had to make 22 of them and they were a pain!  I took the pictures at home & edited in photoshop, then printed them at a kodak center thingy.  The tent is card stock printed off of my computer.  They didn't turn out how I thought they would but I like em.  I was planning on putting in a home made admission ticket but they don't really match...oh well.  I can't wait for the party!  I'll post pics in the party planning section afterwards.

8  Safe & Super easy Light Sabres for kids in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by 50srocknrollergirl on: June 11, 2007 06:22:50 PM
So I did a search and didn't see these so I thought I'd post...There has to be more Star Wars obsessed kiddies out there!  Not just for kids...the teenagers were begging the little kids to play with them and had a few battles.  I made 6 of them a few days ago for georgie...he's 4.  They played with them non stop for like 3 hours.

All you need is simming pool noodles cut in half, duct tape, black electric tape and some sort of red tape.  I tried to use a red sharpie for the "button" but it just rubbed off so I used some red tuck tape whatever that is!  They're holding up well.  We even brought them swimming a few times.  Just be sure to over lap the duct tape.  These are not my idea...I read it somewhere on the net.

9  Re: Games/Activities for Parties for 7-9 year olds? in Party Planning by 50srocknrollergirl on: March 15, 2007 03:53:50 PM
I don't know about the younger ones, but here's what I did for a party before...older girls...age 9 would work.
-made funky foto figures from the ZOOM website.  You take pics of the girls, cut out their faces(I took them at the party) and make the bodies out of pipe cleaners.  Then I made little outfits out of felt & they used foam stickers to decorate them. P.S.  If you do this use tacky glue instead of elmers!  elmers didn't work so well.  Here's a pic:

They played a lot of games and won prizes...One game was a soda pop ring toss.  They loved it. They also had a silly string war.

Hope this helps!

10  Re: Super Mario Sweet 16 (enough images to choke a horse!) in Party Planning by 50srocknrollergirl on: December 31, 2006 04:27:14 PM
Ok here they are.  They're not cut out yet...I'm not sure if I'm going to cut them out or just stand them up.  They're free handed so they're a bit out of proportion!  But he loves em...He's pretty excited that they're bigger than him.  I want to make a peach, bowser, luigi & petey piranha as soon as I get some more cardboard pieces.  Thanks again for the idea!
