651  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Re: Spy Party Help on: September 16, 2008 11:23:13 AM
You could play the game Operator with a bunch of walkie-talkies.  Divide up the kids into two groups and have the first two kids hide in closets or something.  Have one start the message with a pre-scripted directive, then have them pass their walkie-talkie off to another kid waiting outside and the second kid will tell the new kid the message, and so on.  Watch the new Get Smart movie or an episode of the old show (depending on how long you want the party to go) and every time Max says, "I meant to do that" (or something similar) have the first kid who notices grab a fake badge from the floor, then reward the one with the most badges at the end with a prize.  Play a joke version of the tray memory game with (for instance) a stick of gum, a shoe, a pen, a watch, a bowtie, an eye patch, etc., then when the kids "remember" what was on the tray, say, "I'm sorry, this may appear to be a stick of gum, but it's really a tiny explosive," or shoe/phone or pen/laser or watch/satellite image receiver or bowtie/gas releaser or eye patch/x-ray vision scope.  You get the picture.  Give out fake mustaches and Groucho glasses and wax lips and other disguises as favors.  You can serve virgin martinis (Sprite with a spritz of flavor syrup, shaken, not stirred.  And make the cake look like one thing, but disguise it as another.  For instance, cover it with spearmint leaves and put it in a salad bowl and tell the kids you're serving them "salad" instead of cake.  (That's the best idea I can come up with on a whim.)  Just think of every spy clich ever and go off of that.  Have fun!!
652  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Puget Sound Regional white elephant swap on: September 16, 2008 10:02:33 AM
GothChics, I've got a club called TLC (Tacoma Ladies' Club) and we get together once a month to do something fun that's local.  I could definitely convince some of those women to join in, if you don't mind a bunch of new girls! 
653  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Help me come up with jewelry/crafting ideas for "Fantasy Film" on: September 16, 2008 09:11:21 AM
I just bought a whole bunch of Fantasy Film (same as Dippity-Glas, Formafilm, Treasure Trove, etc.) - that liquid resin where you dip crafting wire into it and it dries into a thin glass-like film.  They'd stopped selling it in the US a long time ago (like the last time I used it was over 15 years ago), and I finally located a dealer in Ireland, but I bought so much that I'm afraid it'll go dry before I use it all.  Back in the '70s and '80s it was mainly used for tacky fake flowers, but I'd really like to make some neat ornaments and jewelry and anything else cool-looking out of it.  Does anyone have any good ideas?  Thanks!
654  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Re: Halloween "Apothecary", "Soothsayer's Den" & "Haunted Tavern" Party - Ideas? on: September 15, 2008 09:35:51 PM
Last year for a Halloween evite I asked people to bring ridiculous things that you would put in apothecary jars, but I put a goofy spin on each one.  Here's my list, in case you think any would be humorous for your party too:
 tongue of a lisping dragon   
 eyes of a nearsighted banshee
 warts of an unpopular toad
 toenails of a conceited gargoyle
 tears of a lovesick werewolf
 blood of a papercut jellyfish   
 whiskers of a teenage bat
 scales of a sunburned lizard 
 oil of a skittish skunk   
 sweat of an overweight vampire   
 teeth of a British troll
I'm going to make the jars for my party this year.  I bought some eyeball bouncy balls for the eyes, and I'll use fishing wire for the whiskers and hominy for the teeth, but I haven't figured out the rest quite yet.  Let me know what you use if you do it!
655  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Pregnant and DUE on Halloween on: September 15, 2008 09:04:37 PM
I was a cheerleader and my husband was the captain of the football team when I was 9 months pregnant.  That was fun!  I just stitched a simple pleated skirt and sewed felt patches onto thrift store jackets.  I read a good idea the other day about being Mother Earth and painting your tummy like a globe.  Isn't that clever?  I'm going to do that next time I'm pregnant and wear a broomstick skirt and put flowers in my hair.
656  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Couple and dog - we need costume ideas :-p on: September 15, 2008 08:45:15 PM
I adore the Jetsons - you could easily be George & Jane with the puppy as Astro.  All you'd have to do is put a double green collar on him, so he'd probably be a good sport about it.  Or (since I'm now on a cartoon run) your husband could be Inspector Gadget, you could be Penny, and Simba could be Brain with a red collar and a beacon-like antennae sticking up.  Cute!
