They make those little glass fish suspended from a peice of fishing line from a glass bubble, then the bubble floats on the surface and the fish are suspended at all different lengths throughout the water. They catch a lot of light and look really pretty, maybe something like that would work
112  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Gilmore Girls Swap on: September 05, 2005 08:39:35 PM
I am definately interested in this! I have seen every single episode countless times, and have every single one memorized. Honestly, it is my favorite thing in the entire world, i dont care if that sounds pathetic, its true. I once told my boyfriend of 3 years that i loved Gilmore Girls more than him, and I wasnt kidding. My obsession with it is probably unhealthy. I really cant even put into words how much I love it. Count me in for the swap.
113  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: Long distance relationships, anyone? on: September 05, 2005 08:24:29 PM
I'm in a long distance relationship also, and getting anything in the mail is fun. I would suggest instead of sending the pictures in e-mail, get prints, that way its more personal and gives you a ton of fun wrapping options. I just sent a package to my boyfriend with a book i thought he'd like, a scarf i knit him, and i covered a box in antique sheet music and put pictures and little things inside of it. He plays the banjo so he can also use the box for picks, and other things like that.
Also, maybe each week, or every other week, you could re-cap it in a box, so he feels like he was there with you. Take a ton of pictures, pick up a small item from whatever you did (movie stub, pressed flower from a walk you took, etc), add some little notes that you probably write to him when your bored in class. Then at the end of the week or month send him the box so he can imagine he was with you the whole time.
My boyfriend collects records, so if I see one he'll like at a resale shop or something I'll pick it up(theyre like a dollar)I just kind of collect random things that I think he'd like, find funny, etc. Nothing expensive, just junk. The best part to me is packaging it and sending it, and I'm sure you're boyfriend would be totally psyched to get anything in the mail, no matter what it is.  You could also do something totally lame, like take the pictures of you in your apt./dorm, doing whatever you do, and edit it on the computer so he's in the photo too. I know its ridiculous, but if my boyfriend sent me pics of him with me added into them I think itd be pretty funny. I'm thinking about making a "paint by number girlfriend" to send him, make a cute little set of numbered paints, and section off a pic of me, or the two of us with a little guide or something.
I dont know, I personally absolutely love getting anything in the mail, even if its just a card, so if you send him anything I'm sure he'll appreciate it.

I've heard there's a website where you can have books made where the main character can be anyone you want,(you, your daughter,son, friend, etc., in this situation your neice). You pick a story, give a description and name, and they'll print it and mail it to you. I am so sorry, but I have no idea what the site is, but I'm sure if you looked around on google you could find it. Since she cant leave the hospital you could make her star in a really adventurous story where she does all kinds of crazy things that she isnt able to do. (Ride unicorns, meet her favorite person, have an adventure somewhere outside). They make childrens books, so shed be able to understand it, or have it read to her, and then she'd be able to live out a whole other life through this book all about her. You could probably make it yourself, but it might be exciting for her to think someone just randomly wrote a book about her.
115  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: Grandparents Day on: September 05, 2005 03:57:57 PM
For mothers day last year i made my mom a really basic quilt. I just took one foot squares of patterned fabric in colors that went well together, added batting and backing and it was done in about 2 hours. I think grandparents would really appreciate it and if you do it in muted, basic colors it will go with anything if you're not sure if their decor.  My materials cost about 25$ total. I dont know if you sew much, but its all straight lines, so even if you dont its still super easy and quick.

It seems like dad's usually appreciate useful things as opposed to crafty stuff. Maybe a gift certificate to have the truck detailed and waxed when it's done being fixed up, I know thats kind of boring though. I liked the first aid kit idea. You could find a box or tin and print an image of the truck on it, and then have all of the things inside of it be in coordinating colors (if possible). I think if you did it all 40's style and in matching colors it would look really neat, then it would be practical and crafty.
