4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / gift swap games, not dirty santa? on: December 06, 2010 11:35:31 AM
our fam does a gift swap at christmas, usually a dirty santa type thing.  no one ever wants to plan this party because the old people ( lol parents and grand parents ) hate it.  the men dont want to participate at all, the women are afraid to steal gifts and hurt someones feelings, and then the little kids cant even participate ( all under 9 ).  well somehow i got stuck with planning it this year.  im trying to think of something different to do for the gift swap.  the men still wont enjoy it, but ill make them participte anyway. 

 i just need ideas, all im finding online are variations of dirty santa and the left right game.  left right would be ok i guess, i just wanted a few more unique ideas.

my mom suggested some kind of trivia. but im not sure how to work that out.
5  COOKING / Dessert / fudge shop goodies? on: November 23, 2010 09:27:14 AM
so last year i made candy for christmas.  i really enjoyed it and i think i will again this year.  im looking to make things like you would find in a fudge shop. 

dh has demanded peanutbutter fudge, so thats on my list.  christmas crack.. posted here and such a rave is totally on my list because i love it.   i was also thinking about chocolate covered cherries, white chocolate covered oreos and maybe some eggnog cookie truffles. id love to make home made turtle's but im a bit intimidated by the caremel.

what other fudge shop goodies can you guys suggest. 
6  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: photo quilt, not made with tranfers. on: November 22, 2010 11:32:25 AM
thanks so much this helps a lot.  i knew i couldnt be the only person out there with this idea.  it seems so obvious, especialy since most quilters i know arent just quilters. they are scrapbookers, or painters, drawers, or just grandmothers aunts or sisters with loved ones to show off.   this is really helpfull because i did want to make a wall hanging, mainly because i dont have time to finsh anything larger before christmas.   
7  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / photo quilt, not made with tranfers. on: November 21, 2010 05:38:04 PM
i want to make a photo quilt.  but not with transfers that you iron on.  i want to make pockets you can slip a 4x6 into.  so the photos can change as kids get older ect.  i got the idea from a quilt that hangs in nearly every cracker barrel resturant ive been in.  its a quilt with a tree and plushie apples  that have little pockets to hold wallet size photos.     

something similar to the photo pocket purses/diaper bags like this http://www.amazon.com/BSI-QUILTED-PHOTO-DIAPER-BAG/dp/B0020ICESG  but in quilt form rather than bag form.

idealy id like to have 9 squares with pockets, that resembles a frame. i have the clear vinyl, i just need to figure out how to make the quilt blocks and attach them.

9  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / ideas to re dye tie dye? on: August 26, 2010 05:32:45 PM
we tie dyed last weekend.. it was a blast and we got some cool stuff.   my stuff was a total dissapointment.   nothing to do with the dyes, or the technique .. im just off lately. 

i just need some ideas on how to snazz em up a bit... they have way more white space than i care for, and just generally dont look as fun as other batches ive made. 

10  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / painted baby shoes on: August 08, 2010 08:20:48 AM
i had some little white baby shoes and they needed something. i painted them to sorta look like saddle oxfords, but the idea didnt translate perfectly.

they have little cherries, and say Cora in cursive.  they could have been better but my crafting abilities are lacking lately.

and heres how they started out
