1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / If you were 14...DIY party ideas? on: July 09, 2013 08:16:44 PM
Hi, craftsterers. Long-time reader, second- or third-time poster. I hope the low number of posts doesn't make this question inappropriate!

My daughter is turning 14 in a couple weeks and wants to have a DIY party, where she and her friends have a variety of crafty projects they can work on all afternoon.

My question for you is this: If you were a 14-year-old with 10 girlfriends and, say, $20 for supplies for everyone, what kind of DIY project would you do?

(Assume we have some basic crafting tools at our disposal - glue guns, scissors, sharpies, an oven, a printer, etc.)

I'll come back and post photos after the event Smiley

You should go if you ever get the chance! There is some incredible art that happens out there, that just couldn't exist anywhere else. And also there are mobile all-night dance parties.

We live in the Bay Area and are those annoying oldsters who say that when we went to Burning Man in the '90s it was [cooler, smaller, cheaper, whatever-er], while seekritly wishing we had the time and energy to do it again. The sentiment expressed is something of an inside joke with us (its meaning goes beyond what it seems to say on the surface :).

I used the stitchpoint.com text generator for the text, and designed the mini-man border myself.

This was my first cross-stitch project in a loooong time, and now I want something more ambitious, but can't decide how big and detailed I can go without losing interest before I finish. A favorite album cover or work of art, maybe...

http://sfopera.com/eventdetails.asp?id=662&eventtypeid=9 for info.

I have heard that although it doesn't open until 11am, there is often a pretty long line by about 8:30.

some of the stuff might be excellent for reconstructions...there's a huge $5 and $10 section.

oh, bead organization stuff is a great idea, thanks!

maybe i'll throw in some locally-made beads too, for good measure. i know a bit about her, so i bet i can make a pretty decent guess what she'd like.

Hi. I know nothing about beadwork, so I am throwing myself on the mercy of you wonderful artisans for advice!

I am involved in a secret faery game. The person I am faerying makes beaded jewelry. I've never seen any of it, so I don't know what her style is.

I'd love to get her some beads to work with, or some supplies or something. Do you beadworking folks have any suggestions for what kind of gift might be appreciated? Maybe in the up-to-$20 range? Should I just get a bunch of cool-looking beads in her favorite colors?

7  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Any sandwich ideas? on: June 29, 2005 01:26:49 PM
ooh, we just had a sandwich party at work today, so this is timely.

jarred roasted red peppers are SO GOOD. have some around to toss on an otherwise dull sandwich.

instead of regular cheese, use brie. my favorite is brie, avocado and tomato. omg yum.

you can cook up some bacon and refrigerate for use in sandwiches later on.
