Cheap dowels and keyrings could be easily set up to some sort of roman shade apparatus.  Just sew in a horizontal tube for the dowels every little bit (this way you don't have to worry about the dowels being connected to each other, either) and add key rings across each of the dowel supports, with twine or rope up the back.

Wikihow has a really simple roman shade instruction with homemade materials IIRC. And as long as you're not stiffening the fabric, I imagine it would fold up rather flat.

I definitely got the faces, looking at the thumb my fiance asked if it was Ringo Starr though. I think they're adorable without faces, I fear they'd make the bag too busy looking. Maybe only on the pink face?

I also like the hand-done look of the words, and them being there. If the letters were all exactly perfect and alike, they'd be...not standing out and unique?

I'd buy it exactly as is.

why didn't you name him Dick?   Cheesy Grin

"Battery Operated Boyfriend"... Not that I know anything about those...

So, wait, you just printed directly onto the fabric with a regular printer? Can you explain, because that sounds way too good to be true.

And I am SO jealous of your boyfriend. My refrigerator is covered in a giant periodic table but I'd kill for that duvet cover.

One thing I haven't seen anyone mention (at least recently):
Homemade candles.

They're not very "tough guy" manly, but they're definitely romantic, and even a manly man is down for a little sensuality. That, and most guys like candles whether they'll admit to it or not.

Plus, they're cheap and easy. You can do it the proper candle making way, or just get a bunch of crayons, melt them in a double boiler, and pour them into any cool glass container (or into a hole dug into wet sand) with a wick.

Does he have a desktop, or a laptop? If he has a desktop, a BIG bag for carrying keyboard/mice/cords/etc is always handy.
Fingerless gloves are nice too, even if you just cut the fingers off the cheap store bought kind.

Homemade cookies always make me feel better, they're tasty and (cony) baked with love. They mail really well too, if you throw them into gladware or similar.

If you can sew, making a quick stuffie (i'm thinking gingerbread man shaped, with ears) of a bear, along with a note along the lines of "I can't give you a bear hug, so here's a bear TO hug", is cheesy but sweet.

Dredging up an old post I know, but I'm dying to try this.

The supermarket here has various size bags of broc, I think the standard's 1 lb, is that what you use?

on my own, I'm a salad machine, but he got burnt out on spinach salads almost immediately (since he dislikes lettuce)
I'm making some tomato soup right now, we'll see how that goes. This no onion thing's such a pain!
10  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Since I'm sick of stirfry...Help! on: August 13, 2008 09:50:47 AM
The dear boyfriend and I together create probably the most difficult couple to cook for ever. So we've been surviving off stir fry, pasta, and stuffed mushrooms.
So now I'm begging for ideas.

I'm: mostly vegetarian (lax about chicken stock, and when I'm starving will eat chicken fingers), don't do eggs, and am the cook.

He's: allergic to onions/shallots/scallions etc, but garlic's okay. He also doesn't like peppers, or celery, and isn't a huge lettuce guy. He won't eat red meat, but white meat's okay (I only have experience cooking chicken breasts, so he's out of luck if it's fancy)

To add to the pain in my side, I'm operating out of his very basic kitchen (ie- he didn't know he had a cookie sheet) so rice cookers, crock pots and my beloved kitchen-aide are not available.

Any ideas? Preferably not starring more stir fry or mushrooms, but beggars can't be choosers Also, calories don't matter, I prefer them low, but he's a twig who can eat about 4,000 a day and still be hungry.
