1  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / i have no idea how to organize a fundraiser HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! on: August 02, 2006 10:43:28 PM
well i was watching TLC and i caught a family that adopts children with mental and physical disabilities. they have adopted 23 children and have 4 biological children. they are on welfare and i would love to organize a fundraiser to not only raise money, but also collect donations of toys and clothes for the children. does anyone have any experience in organizing fundraisers? i would like to have a concert in my town recreation center with some local bands who would play for free. I'm guessing 10 bucks a ticket is good. i can also get dunkin donuts to donate doughnuts, bagels, muffins and coffee (Ive had them do it before...can you say 30 boxes of joe??) and i could sell that there too.

if the fundraiser comes into action, i will gladly accept any donation of anything you guys make...anything! and sell whatever it is at the concert. anything not sold would be returned to the creator.

i really need help! this family has really touched me and their faith in these children is unbelievable.
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / 2 new bags! pirate and heart on: February 13, 2006 12:26:36 PM

3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / HOT TOPIC SUCKS! on: January 03, 2006 12:21:28 PM
Wow. The other day I went into Hot Topic to find some Christmas presents.
What I found was an even greater hate for that store.

They are selling bags that look like they were made out of sweatshirts. I guess so people can walk around pretending they have some amazing craft ability while we crafters slave away over sewing machines and knitting needles.

Basically, it looks like someone took a sweatshirt, cut it off below the pockets, sewed it together, sewed the arms together, and the bag entrance is through the neck hole. The hood is still on it too.

I don't know why, but this really pisses me off.

5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / bubbles EVERYWHERE on: September 13, 2005 07:26:11 PM
so one day i was hanging out with my friend when i discovered a huge bottle of bubbles. i had recently gotten my camera and i wanted to play around with it, maybe make cool prints to hang on my walls. so we blew about half of the bottle out, and i put it on her shaggish carpet.

...and i knocked it over.

apparently, adding water to bubble solution= foam. her carpet foamed.

after about two rolls of paper towels, i gave up and put her lamp over the foaming spot. i have yet to see what it looks like. it sort of bleached her carpet.

good times;
