1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Confirmation gift... on: November 02, 2005 06:19:44 PM
So...my brother is getting confirmed in a couple weeks and I want to make or buy him a gift.  He's 15 and a typical teenage kid.  He likes nascar, hunting, playstation...he's kind of a redneck....  I don't know what to get him.  It doesn't have to be anything religious, but maybe something more adultlike.  I thought I could get him some cologne, but I don't know what else.  He doesn't wear jewelry, or have a truck yet.  Also, he's not a big fan of clothes (even though I usually resort to earnhardt t-shirts and hats and he deals with it). I don't live at my parents anymore, so I don't know what he needs/wants.  Ahhhh! I'm clueless!  Anyone have any ideas?  Thanks so much!!!!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Learn to knit/crochet product question... on: October 26, 2005 09:00:39 AM
I want to learn to knit or crochet (haven't decided which yet).  Anyhow, they have these kits at michaels for $15 or $20 and I've got a 40% off coupon for this week.  Is anyone familiar with either of these?  Even if you aren't, could you check them out quick and give me some advice?  Also, I don't think they inclue yarn...what would be good to start with?  Ahhh, so many questions..sorry!  If anyone has a little advice, I'd really appreciate it!  Thanks SOOOO much!

3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / christmas ornament ideas??? on: October 12, 2005 05:00:06 PM
Yesterday my honey and I were looking at Christmas ornaments and he suggested we make eachother an ornament for Christmas.  !!! I don't know where that idea came from, he's not very crafty, but I'm all for it.  But I'm kinda stumped what to do.  I don't know if I should decorate one, or make one from scratch, or sew one...
Any ideas?  He's very into his guitar, so I might want something music themed.  But I want to be able to put '2005' somewhere on it and make it a little lovey dovey somehow.  Any ideas would definately be appreciated!  Thanks so much!
4  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Window clings.. on: October 12, 2005 09:59:49 AM
Okay, so I bought these halloween window cling things last year.  Now they won't stay clinging.  Does anyone know any ways to bring back their clingyness?  I tried wetting them, but that didn't work.  If anyone has ideas, throw them my way- thanks!!!
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / My very first pillow! on: September 19, 2005 02:31:14 PM
Okay, so it's not much, but it's my first sewing project so I'm pretty proud.  It took me a couple hours because I didn't know what I was doing and I had to hand sew it all.  But it was fun and it turned out better than I thought it would.  Wink
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / French Memo Board... on: September 16, 2005 07:45:24 PM
I always wanted one to put pictures and whatnot on, but I couldn't find any cheap ones that I liked.  So I made my own (pink of course!).  It's definately not perfect, but no one ever notices because they're too busy looking at the pictures I stick in it.
7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / yet another boyfriend problem.... on: July 08, 2005 06:53:11 PM
OK, guys are impossible.  Our 3 year (not wedding) anniversary is coming up beginning of August.  I figure I better get my stuff straight now- I tend to be a procrastinator.  I have NO clue what to do.  I really like scrapbooking, but all the pics I have of us are pretty much the same.  And we haven't really done anything too exciting.  So it would be a boring scrapbook.  I don't want anything TOO cheesy- but I want to give him something personal.  I don't mind making something that's time consuming, but nothing too difficult.  Anyhow, my bf and I live together in a little apartment.  He's 19, is a guitar prodigy (van halen and stevie ray vaughan are his faves), is in a 'bar' band, likes funny movies (will ferrill especially).  He's a very low maintenance guy who's basic needs are food, a guitar, and his truck.  He just got a job doing auto body repair.  Hmmm, I think that's about all there is too him!  Oh, and he's the best guy in the whole world and I love him very much  Roll Eyes  SO.....if anyone has any idea, I'd appreciate it greatly.  THANKS SO MUCH!
8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / REDNECK in a box...? on: April 22, 2005 09:22:58 PM
I love the "    in a box" ideas and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for a redneck in a box.  A friend of mine recently moved to Montana (I live in Wisconsin) and is kinda homesick.  I thought I could send him a box of things to remind him of home....but I can't think of anything...
