71  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: What to do with dress now? on: June 23, 2006 12:59:04 PM
Can you describe your dress or post a photo?  That would help.

Other ideas: table clothe and napkins, pillows, photo frame (you could use the fabric to cover the frame and use it for a wedding photo), wall hanging (maybe add some kind of saying or something read from your wedding).

A description and/or photo would help.
72  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Re: Pink Bunny Egg Holders on: April 14, 2006 11:14:54 AM
Thanks so much for posting this!  I was looking for a fun and easy craft to do with the kids at my church Easter morning, and I've decided to do this!  I'm going to use washclothes so I don't have to cut fabric, but this is such a great idea.  The kids can use them on Easter for an egg holder and then keep them for a Boo Boo Bunny.  It met all of my requirements: cheap, easy, little to no use of markers (I plan to draw the faces), no glue, something useful.  Yay!

Just wanted to say thanks!
73  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Need a kid craft for Easter Morning - any ideas? on: April 12, 2006 07:20:25 AM
I am doing the Easter Egg Hunt at my church for the third year.  It's a long (and boring) story, so I won't go into the details, but I didn't find out about it until yesterday that I was expected to do it again this year.  So in the past I bought craft kits from Oriental Trading but this year I don't have time.

I need a fun craft for kids ages 1 (with parental help) to 12ish.  Last year I did a really cute Chick frame and the year before I did a wall hanging with a lamb that was made from the kid's handprint.  All were foam based crafts and they were easy enough for the little kids to do.  I also require no paint or markers because the kids are in the Easter clothes and, well, I know I'd be mad if by 2 year-old went to church and came home covered in markers or paint.

So any ideas?  I'm also paying for this myself so I don't want it to be too expensive.  It shouldn't need a lot of dry time either.  I want it to be fun and cool, something they'll keep and not toss when they get home.  I like crafts to be useful when possible.

So that's a tall order, and why I'm having so much trouble!  I'd appreciate any ideas.  Thanks so much!

That. Is. So. Funny!!!!!

My husband keeps coming in here asking me what I'm laughing at.  One time he said "Fine, DON'T tell me."  I couldn't say anything because I was laughing so hard.

OMG - this is the best post!  So many cute stories - isn't it funny how so many kids re so alike, yet they are all so different!

When I saw that photo it reminded me of the time my sister, at about 3, got into my mom's make-up and used it - all around her lips like a clown.  My mom thought it was hilarious and took an adorable photo of her smiling ear to ear - and then yelled at her!  I rememebr her crying because she got in trouble.  My mom said she took the photo first because she would be smiling and THEN yelled at her!

As far as quiet kids, my 2 year old was about 1 when he was being VERY quiet in the TV room while I was in the kitchen.  I walked in to check on him and he was right in front of the TV with some crayons being very good.  I should say that our TV's power button had broken and there was a 1/2 inch hole in it's place.      Well, I got suspicious and went back in and saw him shoving a craying into the hole.  When my husband came home he took the TV apart and there were 48 crayons in the bottom of the TV!  We promptly taped the hole.

I love kids!  I also remember babysitting a family with 4 kids and I was very impressed with how quiet the 2 year old was being on the couch.  Turns out he was very busy coloring it!  Oh, how I dreaded their mom coming home and having to tell her how her son colored on her couch.  She never got it out, either!

I'm glad you got your money back, even if it is in PayPal.  Now hopefully you can find another, better machine and use the PayPal account to buy it. 

Good luck!

There are good eBayer sellers and, well, BAD eBay sellers.

I've recently started selling on eBay and everywhere I've read says that the customer is always right.  I always accept a return withing 14 days.  I normally do not refund shipping, but if I was asked and the customer was very upset I would because it is more important to me to keep a customer happy.

Here's my advice: In general, always start with the seller, but you've done that and are not happy.  The seller seemed rude to me and I can't believe he responded that way!  So, file a dispute with eBay.  I noticed you did this, so I'm not sure if you are in the middle of it or if you have resolved it.  Continue with eBay as far as you can - either until you are satisfied or until you can't go any further.  Have you left feedback yet?  Feedback is the best way to know if you are dealing with a reliable seller (or buyer).  It is also the way you can make sure others know about your problems.  You should leave a negative score and briefly describe what happened. 

All in all, it sounds to me like you found a bad seller.  I haven't had any problems (yet - fingers crossed) in buying or selling.  So I hope everyone doesn't cross eBay off their lists!  There are a lot of good sellers!

I hope you get this resolved and can get the machine you want  Smiley

First of all, this is my first posting! I've been lurking for a while and I really enjoy the site.   Smiley

My bathroom is a mermaid/sea theme.  The window sill was covered in yucky wood-look contact paper.  It needed serious help so I took it off and found inspiration at Home Depot when I was looking for something "organic" that mermaids might use to decorate.  I found the twine - it cost about $3.00.  I also used some thinner twine to hold back the curtain.

So, here's what I did. I hot glued the twine to the window sill, looping it at the top and underneath.  Here is a photo of it in progress:

Here's a close up of gluing the twine:

This is how it looks finished:


This is a close up of it finished with my frame and some shells on it (the photo is me and my husband SCUBA Diving in college):

A wide shot of the whole window finished:
