2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Reception Newsletter used as a favor (Image heavy) on: October 09, 2007 02:43:55 PM
Not sure if the pics are too big, maybe someone can tell me?

I printed out some newsletters to be used as favors given out at my sister's reception.  They included "articles" on their proposal, how they met, getting to know bride and groom, about the bridal party, contact info for the newlyweds and tons of pictures.  And all those little white areas are spaces I whited-out, with stuff like their address and goofy things like that.  Yes, I am paranoid.   Roll Eyes


3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Hankies for Mom & Mom-In-Law on: October 09, 2007 02:31:21 PM
I picked up old, vintage, lacy hankies at antique stores and embellished them for the mother of the bride and the mother of the groom.

The tiny blue flowers were crocheted with an ice blue sewing thread.  The embroidered initials and year use the same thread in a cross-stitch pattern.

Each was wrapped in delicate, white paper and had the following card attached (with necessary changes to make it for the Mother of the Bride, I didn't feel like typing both of them up Smiley):

To the Mother of the Groom:
This handkerchief should be used by the Mother of the Groom, to catch your tears on his wedding day.  As he says his vows, know that you are near him even though he joins to another.  Wipe away the tears, wetting the tiny, blue flowers and notice those same tiny, blue flowers worn in your future daughter's hair.  She walks down the aisle toward her own future, a son you raised to become a loving, intelligent and honorable man.  You are not just gaining a daughter, you are gaining an entire family.

Someday their own son or daughter will walk down the aisle.  Angela and Alan will need a handkerchief on that day to catch their own tears.  Please pass it on with any additions you care to make.  Smiley

Pics (it's hard to see some of the embroidery with the flash)!!

It took me FOREVER to think up just those two little paragraphs.  Probably because I was sniffling  Cry the whole time!  Anyway, just wanted to post it so someone else can use the idea too.  Oh, and my sis (the bride) wore the same tiny, blue flowers that were made by me in her hair, so that's why I wrote about the flowers.

And just so you know, both moms used theirs and cried a lot, my mom had her's stuffed in her cleavage during the entire ceremony and reception for easy access.   Grin
4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / My sis's shower (& wedding) crafts, includes fans, little people, guestbook on: August 27, 2007 02:30:09 PM
My other sister and I gave our little sis a shower a few weeks back.   Her wedding isn't for another few weeks.  I've done some crafty things and wanted to post the pics of those.  The theme was a tea party and everyone wore hats and drank tea (iced of course, it was HOT).  

Her cake topper idea was from the Little People Thread here on craftster.  Here's a pic of the topper:

And since it was really hot I made fans and to jazz them up printed old pics of my sister and other family members on them.  I'm really happy with how they turned out.

Not related to the shower but when I was home I gave her the guestbook I have made for their wedding.  I am SO proud of how well this turned out!  I couldn't even whittle down the pages I wanted to post so there are a lot.  I made it at photoworks.com (had a FREE coupon if you can believe it!) and used quotes I found online.  

Since it is printed on photopaper the only pen I have found to not smear was an ultra fine point black sharpie.  I did a lot of trial and error to figure that out too.  And it has to be black, the red, green and blue ultra fine sharpies smear.  Go figure?!

And finally, no picture but she wanted the "something blue" so I crocheted teeny-tiny flowers using pale blue sewing thread and she will wear them in her hair.

Thanks for looking! Grin

I decided my dd needed a little trick or treat bag.  It is to celebrate the fact that she will actually be able to eat her candy this year!  Hope you like it, she enjoyed "helping" Wink

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Science (or other) Costume Ideas on: August 17, 2006 01:53:55 AM
I have a toddler and I was wanting to knit (or crochet is fine too) her a costume for Halloween.  MIL has offered to sew a portion as well, if I need her too.  I'm starting a bit early, LOL Cheesy  My little girl won't care at all about the costume but I'll have a lot of fun planning!

Anyway, I've searched all over looking for fun ideas and end up with stupid generic costume ideas, like a princess or cat or whatever....  I want something interesting and cool, science-related, if possible.  I've looked through a library book (can't remember what book but there was chain mail, a viking outfit, a guitar...) and it gave me a lot of ideas.  Posters here are fantastically creative and I'm curious to hear anyone's ideas.  Thanks! Wink
