1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Re: Sophisticated yet playful Hello Kitty birthday party on: February 23, 2008 08:29:38 AM
oh my gosh!! hello kitty themed party!! yay.. i love hello kitty too and i'm around your age. hello kitty is not only for kids!  Cheesy

anyway.. for the favors, maybe you can give cookies wrapped in hello kitty plastic bag or something wrapped with ribbon like HK's bow ribbon. I was thinking of apples, for the reference of Kitty's weight which is as much as 3 apples haha, but maybe it won't go too well with your colour theme and will look random. Or maybe yellow/purple mini candles and you can print out the silhouette of Kitty-momoberry style and paste it on the packaging or something.

hope that can help.. ^^ I'm excited for your party lol..happy birthday!

She is definitely not just for kids!  Cheesy

Hehe that apple idea is cute! But yes, I don't know if everyone would get the point or it might be random. But I do like the ribbon idea!

Thank you!

"Hello Kitty All Grown Up" comes to mind as a theme.

This is really cool - I would have loved to have thought of it for my 21st birthday - AND I'm glad I'm not the only one who didn't have alcohol. It was just so, I don't know, the thing to do - and I like to be different. Smiley I hope you have a really great time!

As for the guys, you could give them Dear Daniel stuff, hee hee! Badtz Maru might appeal to them. Or you could go all Happy Meal and do HK for the girls, Hot Wheels for the boys. Smiley

Hehe, I'm glad to know I'm not the only one too! I love being different too. You know, you can still have a grown up HK party if you want!

Hmm yes I thought about Dear Daniel stuff but I couldn't find a whole lot of stuff from him... I thought about cookies in the shape of Hello Kitty and Dear Daniel, but I wouldn't know how to get the shape of Dear Daniel with his little hairs and without the bow hehe. But I love the Badtz Maru idea! I didn't even think about that! I'm sure I can find lots of stuff from him. And the Happy Meal idea is good too! I'll have to check that out..

Did you want a food type thing?? Or something they can keep??

A little box tied with a ribbon (like HK's,as suggested above) filled with Jelly Bellys or M&M's in your colors would be cute.  Maybe the box could be white or black & the ribbon your colors. You could even write your name & the party date on the inside, esp. it's a box that could be used again as a trinket box.

Maybe a little white pot with a packet of seeds (Pansys are purple & yellow)
Guys are hard to do favors for!   I would stick with some thing to eat or use for the guys (candy,, gum, cookies, candles, mints.)

I really like the idea of incorporating a ribbon like HK's! And I know of a local place where I can find M&M's in my colors, so that's sounding really good to me right now.

Yes, guys are hard to do favors for! Like I mentioned above, I wanted to do HK and Dear Daniel shaped cookies because I already have a HK cookie cutter, but I just didn't know how to get Dear Daniel's little hairs... I know I can cut off the silhouette of HK's bow... WHOA! I just had an idea! I'll just use the Hello Kitty cookie cutter, cut off her bow part, and for Dear Daniel's little hairs, I'll just decorate them on with icing! Whoo! Ok, now I've got it -- HK and Dear Daniel shaped cookies, inside a trinket box and wrapped in a ribbon(only for the girls)!!

Thanks so much, guys! I feel foolish for not thinking of this earlier!
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Sophisticated yet playful Hello Kitty birthday party on: February 23, 2008 12:04:37 AM
Hello! My 21st birthday party is on March 22nd and my theme is a sophisticated, yet playful Hello Kitty theme (haven't really come up with a name for it yet, maybe you can help me with that). The colors are yellow, purple and pink and the image of Hello Kitty that I decided to use for the entire theme is a collaborated design of Hello Kitty and Momoberry, which depicts her in a small black dress, looking like a young woman instead of her usually kiddy cute self.

I'm not going to be serving alcohol at my party since I don't care much for alcohol, plus some of my friends are under 21, so I'll be serving "mocktails". My invitation below depicts the theme and mood that I'm going for:

So, as you can see, I love Hello Kitty and though I'm going to be an adult soon I still want people to know that I am maturing, but I'm still a kid at heart.  Cheesy

As for the decorations, I'm using mostly balloons since it's really cheap. I've got lots of ideas about entertainment and food down, but what I really need help with are the favors. My problem is that I'm going to have some male party guests, of course, and I don't want to send them home with Hello Kitty items that they won't be interested in. I'm expecting 20+ people, so I really need and idea for favors that are cheap and can be enjoyable for both guys and gals.

Any suggestions as to what the name of the theme should be and favor ideas? Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the tut! Where did you find your cross-stitch mesh? I've only been able to find 4x4 squares.
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / reupholstered desk chair on: August 02, 2005 05:03:09 PM
I plan to reupholster my fold-up desk chair but am lacking a staple gun. I wonder if just glueing the fabric down with some super-strong glue would do. Any other alternatives?

800 3mm acrylic rhinestones later and the husband will never take my phone by mistake again.  It has been named "The Glitz Phone" by the girlfriends.  I just can't see why....  Wink

I saw this argyle style on rockinrhinestones.com also and decided that I wanted to do it myself. I took into consideration that it takes 9 rhinestones to make one diamond and the rest of the clear ones are just one each, but just one thing still confuses me. Did you have to start from a certain place? Like in the center or something? Or did you just lay something down and work around it to make the argyle design? I don't want to make any permanent mistakes on my phone until I understand completely.

SIMPLICITY AT ITS FINEST!! Great, inexpensive idea!

Exactly how long did it take you to make this? Is a box cutter the same as an exacto knife? I can't even cut a straight line through cardboard with one of those.

I've been assigned to make some kind of monster, just like Dr. Frankenstein did for English class. I remembered seeing this post about felt monsters and thought it would be such an excellent idea and I'd be sure to get my A!

So, does anyone have any ideas of how I can make a monster with a play on the whole Frankenstein thing?
10  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Screening on jerseys? on: March 25, 2005 09:26:50 AM
I just got myself a Speedball kit. Do you think screening on jerseys would work? - The kind that has holes in it? Anyone tried it? I don't wanna take any chances =/
