381  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Re: How Did You Find Craftster? / Craftster Sightings! on: June 16, 2005 03:19:32 PM
This might not be what your looking for, but I came to Craftster through gaiaonline.com , the chat forum thingie. I belong to a Crafting guild, and there were at least five people singing Crafster praises! Plus I've seen multiple people with links in their siggies.

I love crafster btw, and though I am a new member, I just know I'm going to get real use out of it!  Grin

382  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Help-- Where's the best place to get a dress form? on: June 16, 2005 11:51:36 AM
I've just started sewing (and a friend has copycated me---though talk to her and it was all her idea...  Roll Eyes )
and I thought it was be useful (not to mention cool!) to have an old dress form to pin things on. I've been to a lot of place to look: tried e-bay, craft store, etc. But all the dress forms are very expensive. Are my expectations too low to believe I could get one for less than fifty bucks? What did you get yours for, and where? I don't care if it's used (in fact, I'd rather it was). Heelp mey!  Undecided
383  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Re: Sweet 13 Dance Party on: June 03, 2005 06:28:29 AM
Hey Crafty ladies,

My name is Alaniee, I am turning 13 July 13 and want to have a dance party.  If you ladies can help me out with some ideas like decorations, foods, and activities that would be great I am on a budget of about $150.  I want the room to feel like a club and it be really enjoyable for every one. 

                   Please help


Happy birthday in advance! A year or two back, my best friend threw a dance party.

As far as food...
Serve things in miniature Cheesy! Miniature kebobs (pieces of hot dogs with a piece of pepper and maybe a little bit of lettuce on a toothpick.) It probably sounds really stupid, but people love how cute and even proffesional they look.

Set up a bar! Of course nix the alcohol, but you can have all sorts of fun with sodas and juices. Mix sprite and coke and call it "Angels and Devils". Put together orange juice, seven up, and seltzer and call it "Bubbly Delight!" My favorite would have to be what my friend actually did, which was mix all of the drinks and call it "Suicide Punch." Grin You can even wet the top of the glass and dip it in sugar before hand.

As far as decorations

Ok, this might sound a little cheesy, but guests really can entertain themselves for hours with a strobe light. You can get a fairly simple on from somewhere like Party City, and then you can put it in the middle of the room on a table or something.

You want to make sure that there is space to dance, and I would even suggest getting rid of chairs and couches. Instead set up a small air mattress in a corner, and prop some huge pillows up along the sides. This creates a very fun atmosphere to make a "floor couch" as such, because people just can't be wallflowers with such a fun seating area  Cheesy!

Extra tip
Not everyone is going to want to dance non-stop, so set up a tv by the floor couch. People can take a break and watch a fun movie like "Dude, Where's my Car?" or you can flip it to MTV and hook it up to the stereo for dance music and visual entertainment at the same time.
