Wow!  I know how hard it is to cut out all the little lines in the freezer paper... You did an awesome job!
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Re: Knight Birthday Party *PICS!* on: May 18, 2009 06:42:44 AM
AWESOME!!! What a fun party! 
How did you make the dragon pinata?  I've got to make a pony pinata for my daughter and the instructions for the body would be sort of similar, I think. Thanks!

even if I put about ten holes in it and had to unpick half of it only to sew it up wrong again...
That is so funny!  If I do finish a project without doing that, I'm thinking something must be wrong because it was way too easy.  You did a great job! And nobody would notice any of that stuff except you.
4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Star Trek Movie: Help me freak out my husband on: April 30, 2009 08:28:57 PM
Glad you liked my suggestion.  Yeah, I think a Spock something or other would be cool.  You should definitely do your eyebrows, if nothing else.  That would freak him out for sure!  I already have Spock eyebrows, so my husband couldn't tell the difference. Wink
I actually got my husband to dress like a pirate for the midnight showing of Pirates of the Caribbean 2 (several of our friends dressed up as well).   But I haven't really been a Fan enough about anything since then that I've really wanted to dress up (and if I'm not dressing up, he definitely isn't). Smiley
Hope you're able to come up with something really cool!
5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Star Trek Movie: Help me freak out my husband on: April 30, 2009 12:23:53 PM
I'm thinking you should make yourself a little Star Trek insignia pin out of either shrinky dink or friendly plastic.  As realistic as possible.  Wear it to the theater.  As soon as the previews start, realize that you'd better go to the bathroom one last time before the movie begins.  While in the bathroom, you will pull an official-looking (as possible) Star Trek costume out of your oversized purse that you made/bought for just such an occasion. Remove the insignia from your current clothing and place it on your costume.  Change into said costume.  It will be dark in the theater when you return, so your hubby may not notice until you leave the theater.  Well, except for the fact that you might decide to beehive your hair.  What fun that will be!
 Here's a link http://rearwindowethics.wordpress.com/2008/09/05/the-anatomy-of-a-captains-uniform/  to a James T. Kirk costume that my friend made just from Goodwill finds.  You would of course want to have a girl version of the uniform, but that might be easier, I think.  Thrift stores have all kinds of black boots around this time of year.  And an oversized shirt (or two together) or something like that would definitely refashion into a dress.   Sorry I'm not that helpful, cause there's really not much time, but maybe you can think of something.   
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Re: where can I get purse parts? on: April 02, 2009 06:10:09 AM
Sorry, I don't know of an online source or anything.  I just wanted to express my condolences about your Walmart phasing out their craft section.  Why they would do that in a place where folks can't get to a craft store is beyond me!  So, anyway, I just wanted to let you know how sad I feel for you.  Embarrassed
7  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Re: Lemmings! on: February 25, 2009 07:35:53 PM
When I saw the little thumbnail on the Craftster homepage, I was hoping that those little adorable things were Lemmings, and they were!  What an awesome job.  They are so, so cute.  I was so terrible at that game, but I always liked it.  I think its because the little dears were just so little.  Thanks for making me smile!
8  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Help with binding on: January 31, 2009 07:10:07 AM
The corners haven't really ever bothered me, but the last part of connecting the binding together drives me crazy!   Heather Bailey's tutorial on quilt binding really helped me a bunch.  I'm pretty sure she explains how to do corners as well. http://heatherbailey.typepad.com/heather_bailey/  Hope it will help you!  I'd try to explain how to do it, but I'm a hands on learner, therefore a hands-on teacher, and would probably confuse you more by trying to explain! : )

That is just gorgeous!

LOL!  I never say that unless I mean I really am, and LOL! Cheesy  I have some cookbooks like that, and I am torn between thinking how cool the pictures are and how they make me sick to my stomach.  Great Job though!  What a hilarious idea!  Your box looks awesome!
