2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Bunk activity for 15-20 sixteen and seventeen year olds? on: June 04, 2009 03:31:45 PM
In the end of August, my friend and I are staffing a week-long youth group event and need to plan a bunk activity for our group. We generally get about an hour and a half for the activity. Technically, we're only supposed to spend like $5 a head, but the past two years we've been way way over and still gotten reimbursed, so I don't think it matters too much. ^_^ Here's what we've done the last couple years that has gone over pretty well:

year 1: had the girls paint wooden plaques, then took a bunk picture of them and mod podged it on
year 2: gave them white t-shirts and puffy paint and had them decorate their own Encampment '08 sophomore girls shirts

So, we need something epic to follow up this year with! Any suggestions?  Grin
3  ASIA / Japan / Not technically craft related, but...travel help (and maybe a friend!) :( on: May 29, 2009 08:41:10 PM
So, my friends and I trying to plan a trip to Japan this summer. Or rather, my friends are relying on me to do all the work, because I know how to do these things apparently. >.< So basically...what should I do with 9ish days, and what's the least expensive way to do it? As of now, I'm staying around Tokyo, because that's what I can afford. I want to see Kyoto, but I don't know if that's logistically/economically possible. Is there some easy cheap way to do that?

I've also been stalking the Tokyo board writing down all the craft store suggestions...if I'm going to the anime museum with the boyfriend, he's coming to the craft store with me. Tongue

Any help is appreciated. ^_^
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Tree of life necklace! (one of my current favorite pieces of jewelry) on: May 28, 2009 06:54:48 PM
I made this a little while ago fiddling around with my bead stash. I'm really, really excited about the way it turned out.
Secret: the outside ring is made out of a keychain ring.

The whole necklace...it's slightly looser than a choker.

5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Why yes, this is what 20 year old college students do for fun...POKEMON! on: May 28, 2009 06:46:59 PM
In the midst of finals week, my friends and I decided to have a Pokemon doll making party. Yes, it was fantastic. I wish I'd gotten pictures of my friends' Pokemons too, they were ridiculously cute.

Ditto, Jigglypuff, Charmander, Poliwag.

6  UNITED STATES / Massachusetts / Salem area? on: May 27, 2009 05:56:03 PM
So, I see western MA posters all over the place, but so few from eastern MA! Anyone else from the Salem area? Know of any cool crafty stores/crafty opportunities on the north shore? ^_^
7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Craft my college! on: December 20, 2008 06:27:48 PM
Partners would have to research their partner's college/university and craft items relating to their geographic location, mascot, school colors, anything!
8  New York / New York: Central / Super awesome Binghamton area meetup! Let's actually do it! on: November 23, 2008 06:10:25 PM
So, I've been perusing these boards, and it seems like meetups are often proposed, but not often followed through on. So let's actually do it. I'm a student at Binghamton University, and I think it would be awesome if we could get together some sort of crafty meetup/craftalong/lunch type thing. We could hang out, talk about our techniques and favorite stores, work on some WIPs, whatever. Anyone else up for this?
I have a car, so if there are any other BU students around here, I'd be more than happy to give rides.
9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / The most epic jewelery I've ever made! on: October 19, 2008 10:36:26 AM

These are probably the most epic earrings I've made to date. The pair took me about 4 hours, and my fingers were sore and chafing for the rest of the week! It was worth it, though. (Wire and Swarovski Crystals)

Bracelet for my brother's Bar Mitzvah. (Swarovski Crystals)

Closer view.

Matching necklace...not quite as epic, but still took quite a while to make. (Swarovski crystals, fine gunmetal chain, gunmetal headpins)

My dad's in the naval reserves, and recently he was called up to go to Afghanistan for a year. I made bracelets like this for my mom and I and keychains with the same beads for my dad and brother to have with them. The pendant in the middle is a naval seal, and the two silver beads on either side say 'peace' and 'health'. I used blue and gold, navy colors. (Glass cat's eye beads, Swarovski crystals)
10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Decorated champagne flutes for my dance club banquet on: August 04, 2008 03:43:36 PM
Three hours. I spent three hours with two permanent markers and a glitter pen. I had to take a few breaks when I started getting too dizzy or handcrampy. I wrote the name of our group (Orchesis) on the bottom parts, and each girl's name on the top part, plus some glitter accents. ^_^
(I'm really proud of them, in case you couldn't tell... :[ )
