3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Re: Mad Hatter Tea Party...Need Ideas on: March 06, 2006 03:37:49 AM
I did this for my party as well!


I bought a game of croquet and had it set up in the backyard.
I had pink flamingo's everywhere and set the table up like a tea party with little eat me biscuits.
I had red painted roses on the trees and everyone wore a hat!


have a great time!
4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: Married Crafsters Please Help! Wedding Photographers are #@$%^ Expensive! on: January 02, 2006 05:44:43 AM
Yep, married life is nice. Not really any different to life before, except when you wake up and look at them, you know that this is it... forever.

A coffin wedding cake? Awesome!

I thought I had a pretty unique wedding - the whole thing was based off a Cure song "Friday I'm in Love" and I walked down the isle to Nine Inch Nails..... but a coffin wedding cake... that is just tops!

I can't wait to see pics of your big day(and the cake!!!) , and I do wish you all the best in finding a photographer and all the best for the rest of your planning.

Kye xx
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: Married Crafsters Please Help! Wedding Photographers are #@$%^ Expensive! on: December 29, 2005 01:39:08 PM
I know how hard it can be to pay for a wedding on your own.
I have been married for 3 months today now. (Yay!)
Our wedding was done on a mega tight budget. This included rings, food, honeymoon, photographer - the lot.

We saved heaps of money by making nearly everything ourselves and by having a Friday morning ceremony followed by a Champange Brunch. People didn't consume too much alcohol at 8:30am, which kept costs down.
Later that night we went into the City and danced the night away with our mates in a bar. Awesome fun!

As for your photographer - I was able to convince a very reputable photographer to make me a package.
2.5hours, 100 prints, one location and at a great rate - no album though.

I also had a friend follow me around on the day taking photos on a digital camera. She had never really used a camera before, but out of the 300 images she took (on a borrowed camera) we got 83 awesome pictures!

The only thing I can reccomend is to a) explain your situation to the photographers you see if someone is willing to help and b) get the assistance of a friend.

Good Luck. It is a stressful time doing a wedding on a budget, but it is worth it. Smiley
6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: Altered book craft-along? on: December 28, 2005 10:48:07 PM
I did it!

I started my first altered book. I will upload pictures as soon as I can figure out how to. :S
I'm not that great with technology..

I have painted 10 backgrounds so far and have approx 23 left to go. It is a very big project for a first attempt at book altering.

I hope everyone else is going well!

7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Re: Marilyn Manson purse! (now finished!!) on: December 28, 2005 10:44:57 PM
I thought the image was a great likeness.
I'm not a fan of the green, but it was used on several of his albums/lp's. - So it is an appropriate choice.

Well Done!
8  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Re: come one! come all! post pics of your tattoos! on: December 28, 2005 01:09:58 PM
kye your tattoos are lovely
Thanks. I don't get to hear that too often. You have just made my morning!

As for cultural tattoo's - I think any tattoo is fine as long as it is altered to something you like and want on your body for life. Tattoos are art.
I don't see it as a sign of disrespect, although if you are worried, maybe alter the design a bit so you tattoo is "inspired" by a cultural tattoo.
I hope that makes sense.

After seeing all of these wonderful pieces, I really, really want to go an get inked again!!!

I have been working up the courage to get into altered books. I went to a local 2nd hand bookstore and purchased 3 lovely books to be used all for $1.00 each.

I am going to start removing pages from one of them this evening. (I have been meaning to do this for weeks now - I just can't seem to pluck up the courage to harm and old book. Even if I did pick the 3 most boring subject matters in history....)

I am glad that I found this website and other who are experimenting with the same ideas. Your posts have given me some helpful advice.

I hope to stop by soon and see more great ideas and hopefully share some of my own.

I was actually calling stores for this early today! I must have made half a dozen phonecalls with no luck.
I am desperate to get my hands on some!

I'm off to check out that useful link above. Thanks Ladies!
