Actually not sure where that little gif originally came from.. a friend sent it to me the other day .. i believe it is a part of commercially made card he gave his wife..
I think teachers in middle & high school tend to be forgotten not like in elementary.. my daughter loves her teachers so she wanted to make them something.. melt & pour base was something we had handy so we were off to the races..
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Re: Two Kids Parties in only One week! Please help! on: February 13, 2009 03:09:28 AM
A little bit of work for you that is for sure.. sounds like you have the girl's party quite in hand but for the 13 year old boy..... i would suggest video games..it seems most boys love them.. pokemon has quite a few out there(rent them).. so you could turn it into a tournament for the winner..for prizes, pokemon cards, badges or t-shirts.. most of that can be found at a comic book store...another easy idea would be to do a pokemon ball for the cake..
there are a lot of party sites on the net so you could always do a search for pokemon party ideas..
good luck!

Apparently in Grade 8, you don't give Valentine's out anymore.. (duh mum Tongue).. but we made presents for the teachers.. the other nite we made heart shaped soap with a raspberry cream scent & crocheted face clothes.. put in a pretty little valentine's bag.. super easy &  a lot of fun.. happy valentine's day!! Kiss

6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Any Suggestions or Hints? on: February 02, 2009 12:17:07 PM
Hey All.. I am doing my first ever counted cross stitch as a present for my sister as a bday present.  I think I'm going blind with it.  Any suggestions to make things easier?  So far i've only had to fix one thing but admittedly i'm a wee bit nervous about the whole thing. It's not a big piece but lots of colour changes..  Thank you ahead of time for any help you can kick my way.. cheers..
7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Thrift Store Crafters!! on: February 01, 2009 02:03:37 AM
I love thrift stores. Admittedly, prolly a little too much. My best gf & i say it's all about the hunt for us. Today, i found an embroidery kit(unopened) with a saying about sisters($2), a rug hooking kit (also unopened)for my youngest ($4), a brand new white ink pad(.49) and a container of scrapbooking glitter(.49).  Now i am curious if we have any other thrift store crafters in here?
I am always finding yarn & material. I know some ppl  buy the supplies with great intentions and don't get around to it.  The one bad side of this is i am finding so many good buys that i'm running out of storage space.. i need to do a huge stash bust!! Grin

Well,  thank you all so much for your support on this one!!  In my heart, i knew it was a good thing.  Just having the positive reinforcement makes me know this is something to continue.  Again, thank you & a very wonderful Valentine's Day to everyone! Kiss

one thing that i know a lot of ppl use instead of masking tape is mactac... (um i'm not sure what they call it in other countries) or i think it might be called shelf  liner. but it sticks really well and there is no seepage. When i worked at michaels i always suggested that to ppl... i think this would be a great present for my brother for his bday.. thanks for the inspiration..

A friend the other day was a little surprised(stunned) that i give my daughters' presents for Valentine's Day.  It's always a little something usually homemade or dollar store items.  I also do halloween presents for them.. since that is our favourite time of the year. They do little things for their dad & me as well.  I didn't think it was a strange thing to do but i have to admit that i am now wondering if it's time to end this little tradition since my babies aren't little anymore. They are 19 & 13.  What do you all think? Is it time for this mummy to stop?  Undecided
