I didn't think of the hours/days etc, that's a really great idea, thank you Smiley

And I don't mind them being silly ... I wish I was an octopus so I could hug you 4 times as much.  Ehhhh  Kiss
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / "Advent Calendar" for boyfriend on: October 22, 2012 02:35:24 AM
I always make my boyfriend some form of advent calendar to countdown the days to Christmas - before I've put little themed gifts etc in, but he is one of these who doesn't like having little knick knacks about the place (sad face - I'm all about the knick knacks and little toys) but he does love when I draw/write little notes. 

Whitter whitter ... I was thinking of doing a countdown of little notes to him where the numbers mean something, e.g. 8 would be that we first kissed at 8 o'clock.  But dammit if this isn't hard to think of - now I'm all "1 is for ... Er, I have one heart to love you??".   Any help based loosely around that would be ace Wink little generic things, that I, with limited stick man drawing ability, would be able to doodle up Cheesy

Thanks in advance!

4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: "_____ in a box" gift ideas. on: September 20, 2009 06:02:37 AM
Hello all Smiley

I don't know if this has been done, I had a little look but there are soooo many pages!  I was thinking something along the lines of NY In A Box for my mum for Christmas.  We went there a few years ago and absolutely loved it.  Does anybod have any ideas of what I can add?  So far all I have is peanut butter cups lol.

Also, I may just do it as our travels, so instead of just NY I could do Paris, London, Marbella & NY  -  just to maybe spice it up a bit??

I would be grateful for any ideas Smiley
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: Rice-hot/cold packs? on: November 16, 2008 07:13:00 AM
This is probably a stupid question, but I noticed a lot of people put rice in their heat packs  -  is it okay to use rice, it won't go funny inside?  And is it just standard white rice?

I am making my mum 25 presents for an advent countdown and I am stuck on a final few things, so these would be great Smiley

Thanks Smiley

ETA:  Sorry, asking a lot of questions, but is is also okay to just to the one layer of fabric (the outside)?  I have seen some tutorials that have the insides in muslim and then the outside fabric??? Thanks Smiley
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: 2008 What do I make for... thread. on: October 19, 2008 05:07:48 AM
For my brother I am making some Futurama themed things.  So far I have started a Bender cross-stitch https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=227872.0   and a Zoidberg painting https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=90944.0(haha, yes, I am totally plagiarising these two awesome pieces of work!)

Anyhoo, I want to make one more Futurama themed thing, something that can go in a frame along with the two above that can go on his wall.  My question is how should I craft it??

Thanks for any help!!

7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Mother's Day / Re: I love you ... book on: March 16, 2007 08:39:13 AM
Those are some good ideas but I don't think they really fit with my mum.  I need one more idea to write up and draw for Sunday, eek!  I'm such a procrastinator that I did the whole book a while ago (you can see I posted this topic quite a time ago) and left the one more idea for weeks, and now I'm rushing for Sunday.

I know already asked, but anymore ideas people???
8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Mother's Day / I love you ... book on: January 29, 2007 05:02:02 AM
I saw this post when I was looking in the Valentine's board and I thought it would make a lovely idea for my mum for Mother's Day but I am struggling to come up with lost of ideas (I want more than 50 ideas then I don't have to use all of them - some of my earlier ones maybe aren't so good!).  Can anybody help me think of things?? Smiley

9  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / U.K. AND IRELAND / Glass etching on: August 18, 2006 06:40:35 AM
EDIT:  Nevermind, I've found another post like this one  Smiley  Costs a hell of a lot more here than it does in America though, about 5 more from whet I've seen Sad  Oh well!


I never really post here, just linger around and look at other people's stuff, but I've been searching for a while now and can't find anything ...

I want to etch some glass for Xmas (I know, I know, it's August!) but I can only find it on American sites and they can't ship it overseas Sad  Anyway, I can't find any places that sell Armour Etch (which is what eeeeeverybody on here uses), but I have seen other products but am not sure entirely if this is what I want.

Have any UK'ers done glass etching (I'm sure you have! Smiley ) and what product did you use?  I'd prefer if I could order it online, obviously through a reputable website.

Did that make sense??!! LoL.

Thanks Smiley

I just checked out the site, and what a great idea!  I've signed up now and am already due to send out to 5 people  Tongue

Theres a thing on the postcrossing forum about doing this, but with notebooks, like you send out a notebook to one person, they write in it on a topic of your choice, and they pass it on to someone else who writes about the same topic and so on until the last person posts it back to you.  I'd love to do something like that Smiley
