1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Girl's Athena Goddess Of Wisdom & War Costume based on Barbie Doll (img hvy) on: July 23, 2011 08:18:38 AM
I love this! I was really big into mythology when I was a teenager (as you can probably tell by my username) and I actually dressed up as a greek goddess one year. My mom made that costume, as well as the renaissance costume I wanted. She only had one daughter to take these interesting requests from, though, LOL. I love all the detail you put into her costume! I know it's a memory she will cherish forever! I'm 22 now and I still have the two costumes my mom sewed for me that I mentioned above (my mom made me one when I was 11 and one when I was 13 or 14). I plan to hold onto them for a long time.

First off, totally jealous Wink Your dress is amazing! I love the crimson sash! And your hair, and the boots! You look gorgeous! If you haven't already, you should totally check out Offbeat Bride. I'm sure the ladies there would love to drool over your dress, too! And congratulations, btw!

I saw the small picture of this at the top of the screen in the featured project section and I clicked on it because I thought it was a real dog in the pet related craft section (I love looking at the pictures of the cute pet stuff people make)! Then when I saw the whole picture I realized it was a portrait, but it still looks very realistic! It's so amazing and it's really cool you got to meet him and give it to him!

Can you do my bedroom next, pretty please?  Wink Seriously, this looks so awesome, and the attention to detail really shows, especially with the painting of the window overlooking the desert! I love it!
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Re: My son's room is finally done! on: December 30, 2009 09:08:26 PM
I love the lights below the bed, that's so cool! And I've never seen those little bed tents like that before, I wish I had one of those when I was a kid,  especially with the moon nightlight to go with it so it looks like the sky! I think it looks great, and I'm sure your son is loving it!

7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: Cheapest Wedding Favor Ideas... on: October 20, 2009 02:58:17 PM
I'm doing soap favors (I posted them, the celtic dragon soap favors). I wanted to do something useful for guests, and we are also making a donation to the wounded warrior project. Some people do only the charity favors, and just give out a bookmark or letter on the tables saying they've made a donation to a certain charity on the guests behalf. That is something that can be inexpensive and meaningful, since it's up to you how much you donate for each guest.

As far as the soap favors go, I can kind of do a breakdown of cost for you, but I didn't buy all of it from the store. I found a HUGE lot of soap and candle making supplies on craigslist for $100 (but it was like, 4 big containers of soap and candle making supplies, I would say probably about $800 retail worth of stuff). However, if you can't find anything on craigslist, you can go to www.wholesalesuppliesplus.com and get the clear melt and pour soap base in a 24lb brick for $41. To make 120 soaps that are 4oz each, you need like 24lbs of soap (that's how much I calculated I think). I think the breakdown for costs is around $0.75 cents/soap after adding up what I spent on the packaging supplies, plus what you'd spend on soap base and scents.

I hope that helps!
8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: A bouquet that will never wilt! on: October 19, 2009 08:59:37 PM
Those are really cute! I've been looking for creative (and budget friendly) alternatives to traditional live flower bouquets, and you can't beat that price!
9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Our Wedding Favors - Celtic dragon soaps on: October 19, 2009 07:42:42 PM
I'm so excited, this is the first craft project for the wedding that I've actually gotten one completely finished of. I've got all the invitations folded and everything, but nothing printed yet, so I probably should be working on those. Anyways, I bought the mold on e-bay, It's a milky way soap mold (they have lots of cool designs). I made the labels myself using a free celtic font from www.dafont.com (think that's the right URL, could be wrong) and some claddagh pictures I found on google. I was going to put them in boxes, but the favor boxes were kind of pricey and I was trying to keep costs as low as possible, because we're also making a donation to The Wounded Warrior Project for each guest, so we got tulle circles at Hobby Lobby for $5 for 100 and then the ribbon was like $1.49 for a 7 yard roll. The pictures were made using my webcam so they aren't all that great, but I was so excited I just had to post it!

awwww, I love it! I've seen lots of shirts and stuff for kids with parents coming home from a deployment, but I've never seen anything like this, it's so adorable! Your daughter is so adorable too! My fiance is deployed too and we only have a couple months left, so I know how excited you must be!
