1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Little Mermaid Baby Shower -- HELP! on: January 09, 2011 05:24:55 AM
Hello Crafty Ladies!

I've offered to throw a baby sprinkle for a friend of mine, and her choice of theme really threw me for a loop -- The Little Mermaid. I was hoping to make this a super crafty shower, but I'm at a loss for theme appropriate games, food, decor...
I'm a graphic designer so I was planning on designing my own invites and games. I thought about doing fish as part of the food but was worried that someone may not like it. Do you think that shrimp cocktails would be a bad idea for a baby shower? We are having it at her house, so I could really decorate however I'd like but I am not even sure where to begin!
2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Surprise Ball Swap on: November 29, 2010 06:00:33 PM
I have a slight obsession... with surprise balls.
It's bad.


Like that. *squee* What do you think about a swap?

Sort of like the yarn balls, but not quite. With crepe paper or tissue paper instead, and all sorts of fun things inside?
I'm thinking, now? Or should we wait until after the holidays?

4  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Refinished Floors on: July 22, 2007 06:21:39 PM
Since 10 AM yesterday, we have scraped, sanded, sanded some more (about 10 hours total) and painted our badly abused original wood floors (from the 1960s).

An idea of HOW badly?
Check out the before picture

Now we haven't put down the polyurethane yet... We had to paint a border because the floors were badly damaged around the edges and we just couldn't get it all cleaned up. 


And not a smidgen of dust. We got a sander that had a dust bag attached. Yay! We are working on totally remodeling the room, but I was way too excited, I had to share now!

6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Pringles Can Swap? on: May 28, 2007 03:16:26 PM
this may have been mentioned before, but a search didn't turn anything up. They did something like this on glitter a while back... is anyone interested in doing one? Basically, you make a wish list of things you can fit into a Pringles can and mail it because it can be mailed just like any other tube through USPS (not sure about other countries).

7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Baby Shower Games on: January 01, 2007 12:43:07 PM
We are doing a DIY bab shower for the sister in law and are designing all of the games (baby shower bingo cards, guess the number of diapers used to make the diaper cake) but I am officially out of idea. It's a baby boy and we decided a cutesy football theme would be cool. Anyone have any fun games?

And sorry if this isn't ok to post here... If it helps any, everything is crafted!  Grin
8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Help with a diaper bag!!! on: December 05, 2006 07:03:36 PM
Hi there, I am not a parent but my sister in law is having a baby boy in Marchish, and I am trying to make a diaper bag with elasticised bottle pockets. Well, I don't have any bottles, so I used a beer bottle as a baby bottle model. (Phew, that was wordy) Is that a pretty good model or no? Are the similar in girth?
Thank you!
9  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Tiles for dinner table? on: October 14, 2006 07:22:44 PM
We got a second hand dinner table for our new house and the middle has white tiles that are cracked and a little stained... I want to replace these with red glass tiles to match our kitchen. Would glass mosaic tiles be a good choice?
Also, I've never tiled anything before, but it looks fairly simple. Anyone have any suggestions for me?
Please and thanks :-)
10  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Paper Flowers on: June 24, 2006 08:32:02 PM
I saw a thread from over a year ago about a paper flower crown, but for some reason I can't see the pictures anymore. Does anyone know how to do this? It was hibiscus, I think, with little leaves. Anyway, if anyone knows how to make these and can point me in the correct direction, I would LOOOOOOVE you!

No, really.

Thank you. Shocked)
