1  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!
2  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?

Has anyone here ever made their own boutonnieres or corsages? Please do share!
4  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 =/
5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / leftover putty from glow in the dark stars on: March 20, 2005 01:54:52 PM
I used to have those glow in the dark stars on my ceiling, but I took them down because I plan to put checkers up there and now the putty that held them up is still up there. I tried scraping it off, but it only chipped some of it off, and didn't really leave a smooth surface. Has this happened to anyone? Any suggestions on how I should get the rest off clean?
6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / cheery b-day party decorations, whoohoo! on: March 09, 2005 01:38:13 PM
My 18th bday is coming up pretty soon, and my popster won't let me have a Debutante since it's so expensive. So, I've decided to throw my own little exclusive semi-formal party with my own moolah to get out of my daddy's hair. I'm still a kid at heart, and that's what I wanted my whole Debutante theme to be about; the irony of a girl turning into a woman(not necessarily - but it was the case way back then), yet she still loves childish things and acts like one. But this party has got to be extra-special since I couldn't have a Debutante - this is no ordinary sweet 18.

I'm quite fond of the San-X Sugar Recipe theme - the bright and pastel colors, the little drawn faces that are on everything, etc. - If you go to ebay/google and search for" San-x Sugar Recipe" you'll see what I mean. So, my query is: how can I incorporate this theme into cool and creative bday decorations? What have you done/witnessed in the past that has just been uberly cool?
7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Speedball vs. Print Gocco on: February 28, 2005 04:48:58 PM
I'm thinking about getting a screenprinting kit, but I need your reviews or testimonials if you may. I know that Print Gocco has lots of cool features that make life easier, but I don't know much about the Speedball kit, but at this point I can tell that Print Gocco will be choice. What do you think? Which one is more worth its money(I do plan to be on the screenprinting bandwagon for a while)? Are refill materials for either of the kits hard to find?

I know Speedball can be found at a local Michael's, but where locally can I find Gocco? [I've had a bad experience w/ credit card theft while ordering online and I'm paranoid =( ]
8  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / bath accessories on: February 27, 2005 11:35:17 AM
My brother is moving out and the hallway bathroom is finally all mine. So yeah, now I'm redecorating it. Any ideas of some creative, yet cheap bathroom accessories? So far right now I've just got lots of those colored baskets from Bed Bath And Beyond to store all my things in. Also, I've got these shelves as storage units, but they're not flat, as in they're just wires and it gets quite annoying when I put things on it because they don't stand up if they're oddly shaped or fall through if they're too small. Any ideas on how to cure this problem? Here's a picture if you're lost: http://img193.exs.cx/my.php?loc=img193&image=17uv.jpg
9  CLOTHING / Sewing Pattern Reviews / TIP: Use existing clothes on: November 06, 2004 07:34:29 PM
You can use anything that fits you well that you like and trace it for your pattern or lay that piece of clothing over your fabric and pin and trace it.
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / panty patterns! on: November 05, 2004 09:17:56 AM
This may sound stupid to some, but...

I want to make my own panties! Spending all that moola at Victoria's Secret is just not for me. Anyone know of any tutorials or patterns I can use?
