1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Thanksgiving / Thanksgiving & Friendsgiving Dinner menu ideas? on: November 01, 2017 02:48:53 PM
Are you hosting a holiday dinner this month?  What's on your menu?

Our close friends hosted Friendsgiving last year.  They made the turkey and the rest was an organized potluck amongst us guests.  I must say, it was pretty darned fabulous!  Unfortunately, we just moved across the United States and left all of our friends behind. Cry  I need to find a new, epic friendsgiving here in the desert, haha! Cheesy

3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / 2017 Handmade Holiday Gift List! on: October 31, 2017 12:53:37 PM
It's one day from November and I cannot contain my excitement any longer. Cheesy

What are you making everyone for the holidays this year?  Do you have a list?  Still brainstorming?  Need help with ideas?

4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Super Simple Harry Potter Scavenger Hunt on: October 09, 2017 10:35:47 AM
I wanted a fun way to surprise baby.sweets4ever with tickets to the Harry Potter in Concert series (Phoenix Symphony was playing it yesterday), so I bounced around and found oodles of free printables to create a little scavenger hunt.

I told him I spotted something in the living room for him.  The Owl Post had arrived!  I snagged this little owl from Amazon.







I created a letter with this free HP letterhead.  The letter instructed him to hunt for game pieces throughout the house & yard.  I printed a TON of these "Would You Rather?" cards for him to play later, but the letter told him to just do the first page at each location for now. Wink





For this location, I really just wanted an excuse to use this cute little treat box printable Cheesy so I threw in some chocolate coins with the chocolate frog game piece.  They were a big hit. Cheesy





I tried to loosely match some of the game cards to an item or activity at each location.  This paper sorter is so cute and we've all been sorted approximately 72 times since he found it yesterday. Cheesy





The game piece for this location mentioned something about predicting the future, so I put their fortune teller (Magic 8 Ball) toy up there.







The last location of the scavenger hunt changed from the game pieces to this single scroll.  We had his full Harry Potter costume hanging next to it. Smiley



And off they went!





It was a SPECTACULAR concert!  He started playing violin this year, so it was like his two worlds collided, HP & violin.  They encouraged costumes and it was a very high energy event (cheering at certain movie scenes, clapping, etc.), so good for the whole family, even little wizards!  Totally recommend it.  I think tickets started at just $30, too, so not too shabby.  They are doing the next movie in the series in January, so we might snag those for a Christmas gift.

6  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / Craftster Craft Challenges / Craft Challenge #121 - DIY Halloween Costumes 2017, Due Nov 1 - 8 2017 on: October 02, 2017 08:40:34 AM
Craft Challenge #121 - DIY Halloween Costumes 2017, Due Nov 1 - 8 2017


It's time to vote!  Scroll up to see the voting poll.  Click here to see all of the amazing entries!

Feel free to ask you your neighbor, your bank teller, and even your boss to vote, but remember, just one vote per person! Kiss

Good luck to all!



Minions and witches, and Harry Potters galore!

Time to showcase all of those amazingly creative DIY Halloween costumes of this season.  Each year, we've had the pleasure of viewing absolutely spectacular handcrafted costumes.  And now we want to see yours!

Once the challenge is completed, we'll move all of the entries to the Halloween board, so they can be easily accessed for years to come, too! Kiss

Here are a few specifics for this challenge:
  • The costume you enter must have some handmade components.
  • It must be a costume you are making for this year (Halloween 2017 ONLY), and not photos of a costume from past years.
  • If you are making a costume for someone else, and not for yourself to wear, it's okay enter it, but just remember that you can only have one entry in this contest.
  • If you are making a set of costumes for multiple people that all go together via an obvious common theme, you can enter them together as one entry.

Rules:

  • Enter costumes crafted for Halloween 2017 only.  Projects created before this timeframe will not be removed from the entry board, but they will be excluded from the voting poll.
  • Each participant can enter ONE project (Although your entry can have multiple components to it).
  • Post your craft during the period of Nov 1 - Nov 8 2017. No sooner.  No later.  On Nov 1, there will be a special folder created for entries.  We will reply with the folder/board link here on this thread.
  • Voting will happen from Nov 13 - Nov 20 2017.
  • The winner will be officially announced on our first business Monday of the next month -- in our December newsletter, on this thread and on the Craftster blog.  We will contact you via Private Message, after the announcement, to get your prize package information.
  • If cheating of any sort is discovered, the applicable entry and votes will be disqualified.

Originality:

It's probably impossible to know whether your project is 100% original, has never been posted on Craftster or made by anyone else in the past.  But if your project was definitely inspired by something you've seen before, please give credit to that project.

Prizes:

At the end, we'll set up a poll right here and the first place winner will get...

(1) their project in the Featured Projects area
(2) their project in the Craftster Blog
(3) and this Craftster prize (winner can receive prize in U.S. or non-U.S.):
Their choice of any one item from one of Craftster's online shops!

This month, we're focusing on the spirit of love & kindness!  Your challenge is to craft something to gift or donate to someone else.  Maybe you will craft a gift for a friend or loved one?  Maybe will you craft something to donate to someone in need?  Maybe you'll just craft something to drop anonymously somewhere (painted rock, random act of kindness, etc.)?  The choice is yours! Smiley

In your entry post, be sure to tell us who will receive your handmade gift or how you will pass it along to an anonymous receiver! Smiley

Rules:

  • Craft your project during this challenge period (Sep 5 - Oct 8, 2017) only.  Projects created before this timeframe will be excluded from the voting poll.
  • Each participant can enter ONE project (Although your entry can have multiple components to it).
  • Post your craft during the period of Oct 2 - Oct 8, 2017. No sooner.  No later.  On Oct 2, there will be a special folder created for entries.  We will reply with the folder/board link here on this thread.

  • The winner will be officially announced on our first business Monday of the next month -- in our November newsletter, on this thread and on the Craftster blog.  We will contact you via Private Message, after the announcement, to get your prize package information.
