1  COOKING / Dessert / Re: how to make MARSHMALLOW FONDANT! (super pic-chunky!) on: December 24, 2008 08:58:46 AM
I love all of these cakes!
Those colors are great stufie!

I have one question before I venture into the world of fondant, do you put frosting on top of the cake (So below the fondant)? Or just in the middle of the cake? It seems like a dumb question but I'm a  little lost!

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / First project? on: October 08, 2008 05:01:50 PM
I've been browsing the crocheting threads for months and months and I've finally decided to teach myself how to crochet! I'm using a few books and the internet to start out with.
I was just wondering what everyone's first project was and what I should attempt. I'd really like to make a scarf for the winter, but I'm not really sure if I should follow a specific pattern or just pretty much practice my stitching and crochet up a big rectangle that I may call a scarf so I can get used to the movements and everything. Any links or tips would be appreciated!

Sorry for the late reply!
It could really work any way you wanted it to. You would have to come up with advertisements basically summarizing what your group is willing to offer. Depending on how many people there are, some or all of your group would bring the supplies to a party and basically just hold a small workshop for the young girls, teaching them how to make a necklace or whatever piece you choose.

Some things you have to keep in mind are the age group, because if they are very young girls you don't want to have small pieces that someone could potentially choke on.
Also you might put together a sort of menu of jewelry pieces (bracelets, necklaces, clip on earrings, or even decorating tiaras, etc) that the host of the party can choose from. Each different piece could cost a set amount (for different supplies costs) and you could charge per hour or per event.

If you advertise that it's a fundraiser, not a business, people might be more willing to respond.

I couldn't read the one with the black on the top very well.
But I can read the one as your icon just fine. And I like it a lot, I would definitely click on it.

You could get your club to come up with some simple jewelry ideas, and then become entertainment for little girls birthday parties. The host of the party could pay you to teach all the little girls to make their own necklace, bracelet etc.

Or some general ideas are to have a group garage sale or bake sale, sell candy bars, etc. The usual fundraisers.

At my highschool the humane society has a fundraiser where they make yummy cappuccino and sell a small cup for a dollar in the morning. With 1000+ students it's a good way to make some quick, easy cash.

Well overall they are cute bracelets, simple isn't always bad.
But like the others said, I probably would pay 5 dollars at most for one of them, because it doesn't look very time consuming to make.

The first thing I was going to suggest was hanging up fabric.
It can make a room gorgeous. Another idea is to hang strings of lights behind or in front of the fabric to give it that extra somethin.

You've got quite a challenge, wanting to mix 60s retro and antique! I would advise choosing one to focus on Smiley

A good place to start would be deciding what color scheme and patterns you want to base your designs around. Nice retro colors are brown with some mixture of a less natural tone, like orange and red perhaps. As for shapes, it can be as simple as something like squares with rounded corners, or circles/ovals.

Remember that the 60's were psychedelic times, so trippy type stuff is what you might be looking for.

Here's a thread with an idea for a design:

And here's a website for a little more inspiration:

Keep us posted if you come up with any ideas Smiley

I think this is great for your first website!
I was really a fan of the nice, clean look of the place.
Also enjoyed the descriptions of your items, giving just enough information without babbling on and on.
