1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / My save the date cards on: July 04, 2007 09:00:01 AM
I'm planning on printing these on transparencies so they look more like actual film strips.  Thanks for the idea of making it look like a filmstrip whomever came up with it lol!

2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Postponed dangit! Need hot ideas!! on: July 02, 2007 03:24:24 PM
OK, we decided to postpone our wedding at more or less  the last minute since my fiancee's brother (our best man) is stuck in Afghanistan.  So, we decided to wait until the weekend after his wedding (Dec 22) because we know he will be in the country then!!!

Now, this leads to a couple of problems.

1.  Half of the guests will be at both weddings, and his brother's finacee's family has mucho $$$$ to spend!  They spent $20,000 for the reception hall!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Now, I know I shouldn't care, should be happy with our day yadda yadda.  But, I don't want our wedding to look pitiful in comparasion.  Granted, what I can't match in money I can more than make up for in creativity!  Which leads to issue number 2!

2. We are renting a vintage theater for our wedding and reception.  http://www.thoroughbredtheatre.com/  To see pics go to the "Theater for sale " link.  Anyway, I love the idea of having an Old Hollywood type wedding with the guests dressed up, etc.  How do I incorporate this with a Christmas theme which I would sort of like ot have also???

Some idea I have so far;

I have contacted a local car club and we will both arrrive in vintage cars, his in a Al Capone type car (he swears he is coming as Al Capone) and mine is a vintage 1930s Ford V8 like Bonnie and Clyde.

I want to hire a couple of student photographers to act as "Paparazzi" and take pics while we arrive and around the party.

Of course we will have a red carpet!!

I'm thinking the colors will be black, gold and red.  Think some evergreen would be too much??

I would like to make some old type movie cameras and set them around for atmosphere.
I saw an awesome idea for bows made out of filmstrips http://www.hollywoodmegastore.com/frame-set3.htm?http://www.hollywoodmegastore.com/0partydecor.html
Where would I get the filmstrips?

And I love these centerpieces, how do I cope them on the cheap??  http://www.hollywoodmegastore.com/frame-set3.htm?http://www.hollywoodmegastore.com/0partydecor.html

So how do I mesh the two themes?  Is this cheesy??  I am actually more exited about our wedding now that we have postponed it than I was when we were having it on 7/7/07 in a little rental chapel!  Not much room for creativity there!!
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / ASAP Need help with these sleeves!!!! on: June 03, 2007 11:32:57 AM
Ok, I'm getting married in just over a month!  I'm getting ready to start me dress (last minute I know!) and I really want these sleeves on it, the sleeves on the dress on the left.


I have a bodice drafting pattern, so I don't need the pattern, but how on earth would I make the sleeves??  Not to mention the fact that I am a different size than the pattern is!   HELP!!! 
4  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Losing lottery tickets on: May 29, 2007 05:45:09 PM
SO I have tons of these all over the place, both the scratch off kind and the Powerball type.  Any ideas other than bookmarks which is what they are now???

6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Swapper is MIA on: February 21, 2007 06:46:06 PM
One of my swappers is MIA, neither I or her partner have been able to contact her.  Her partner is concerned and so am I!!  What is the protocol for this?  Should the swapper that is in contact wait to start crafting until she is sure her partner will send???
